RFK Jr.: BIDEN is greater threat to 'democracy' than Trump

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is running for president as a third-party candidate this year.

But he long has been a prominent Democrat party leader. As have many of his family members, including his father, Robert F. Kennedy, who was the nation's attorney general, and his uncle, John F. Kennedy, who was president.

He's been active in environmental fights, battled misinformation about vaccinations, leads Children's Health Defense, and takes part in water, renewable energy, and indigenous population issues.

Now he's turned blunt on the issue of the threat to democracy, a charge that Joe Biden and other leaders of the Democrat party have been lobbing at President Donald Trump for years already.

It's not Trump who is the greater threat, it's Biden, Kennedy said.

It's in a report at the Washington Examiner that he explains.

"I can make the argument that President Biden is the much worse threat to democracy, and the reason for that is President Biden is the first candidate in history — the first president in history that has used the federal agencies to censor political speech, so to censor his opponent," he explained, "He’s weaponizing the federal agencies. Those are critical threats."

His comments came in an interview on CNN. He suggested both Biden and Trump have said the election of the other would bring the destruction of democracy.

Neither is correct, Kennedy said, but Trump's statements have more weight.

The idea that Trump is a threat, he said, comes from the January 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol, when a protest turned violent as dozens of people vandalized the building.

He explained, "But the question was, who is a worse threat to democracy? And what I would say is … I’m not going to answer that question. But I can argue that President Biden is because the First Amendment, Erin, is the most important."

He said he would not "defend" Trump regarding the riot, which was "appalling."

The protesters that day were objecting to what they perceived as a stolen presidential election. There were at least two undue influences on the vote at that time, including the $400 million plus that Mark Zuckerberg handed out to elections officials who largely used it to recruit leftist voters.

Never before in American elections had such an amount been injected into the decision – outside of election funding procedures.

Then, too, was the FBI's decision to interfere, with its warning to media corporations that they needed to suppress accurate reporting about Biden family scandals uncovered in the laptop computer abandoned by Hunter Biden. Later polling showed had that information has been reported ordinarily, enough Biden voters would have withheld their support that Biden almost certainly would have lost.
