Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who launched his campaign for the Democrat nomination for president on April 5, sat down for an interview with Kim Iversen on her talk show this week.
Kennedy is a member of the prominent Kennedy family and has long worked as an environmental lawyer, though his Wikipedia page describes him as an anti-vaccine propagandist and conspiracy theorist.
The attacks will only get worse now that he has announced a run against President Biden in the upcoming presidential election and has shared his thoughts on the truth behind the so-called climate crisis.
“Climate issues and pollution issues are being exploited by, you know, the World Economic Forum and Bill Gates and all of these big, you know, mega-billionaires, the same way that COVID was exploited, to use it as an excuse to clamp down top-down totalitarian controls on society,” Kennedy told Iversen.
“They’ve given climate chaos a bad name, you know because people now see that it’s just another crisis that’s being used to strip mine the wealth of the poor and to, you know, to enrich billionaires and I, for 40 years, have had the same policy on climate and engineering, you can go check my speeches from the 1980s and I’ve said, the most important solution for environmental issues, not top down controls is free market capitalism,” Kennedy said.
In 2007, RFK, Jr. wrote a piece for Rolling Stone entitled, What Must Be Done: RFK Jr. on the Climate Crisis.
You can read for yourself that his views have not changed.
“Our last, best hope to stop climate change is the free market itself. There is gold in going green, and the same drive to make a buck that created global warming in the first place can now be harnessed to slow the carbon-based pollution that is overheating the planet. And green investment will not just enrich a few corporations. We know from past experience that it will strengthen America’s economy, not to mention our national security, our economic independence and the effectiveness of our world leadership.”
He discussed how American businesses and the government promoted conservation when faced with the oil crisis in the 1970s.
Carmakers designed more fuel-efficient vehicles shrinking oil use by 17%. At the same time, the U.S. economy grew by 27%.
“Had we stayed the course, we would not have needed to import a single drop of oil from the Middle East after 1986 — achieving true energy independence that, in all likelihood, would have enabled us to avoid the devastating attacks of September 11th, as well as both Gulf wars,” he wrote.
“What we have in this country now is not free market capitalism it’s corporate crony capitalism. It’s capitalist, it’s a cushy kind of socialism for the rich and a brutal, barbaric, merciless capitalism for the poor,” Kennedy said.
It’s time to wake up and stop letting the elitists tell us how we need to achieve “net-zero” carbon emissions in order to save the planet while they fly around in private jets.
As Dan Bongino would say, “It’s not hypocrisy. It’s hierarchy.”
