The liberal media seems to have a fit whenever anyone tries to go against the narrative they are pushing.

It appears that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. — who is decidedly not with the narrative they are pushing — is now sparking one of those fits. As we reported, he just filed paperwork that he was going to run for the Democratic nomination for president.


RFK, Jr. is a Kennedy, but he’s infuriated some in the mainstream left because of his positions against vaccines, in particular the COVID vaccine. He’s also attacked former NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci, who they hold as a God, even blasting him a book.

As we reported, here’s what the AP said about him:

His push against the COVID-19 vaccine has linked him at times with anti-democratic figures and groups. Kennedy has appeared at events pushing the lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen and with people who cheered or downplayed the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Oh, my, “anti-democratic.” You know, I’m inclined to think it’s “anti-democratic” for the government to try to censor people’s free speech. But that’s exactly what the Twitter Files revealed that the government tried to do to Kennedy, by flagging him to the Twitter police.

As I reported, he even commented on the bombshell story from an insider about alleged CIA involvement in the death of his uncle. RFK, Jr’s response? “The most courageous newscast in 60 year,” Kennedy said. “The CIA’s murder of my uncle was a successful coup d’état from which are democracy has never recovered.”


How fearful are they of RFK, Jr, that he might split some folks away from whoever their establishment candidate is? It sounds like they’re very worried. When CNN’s Jake Tapper rips a Kennedy like this, you know they’re scared.

“Healthcare menace?” I probably disagree with him on a lot of things. But seriously, the temerity of anyone on CNN talking about anyone else when they’ve pitched so much that isn’t true on so many subjects, including on COVID. If they want to talk about “menace,” they and some of their other media cronies should look in the mirror.

However, I don’t think the anger is about vaccines. I think this is about liberal media/Democrats (excuse me for being redundant) thinking that he might have a more viable candidate than Marianne Williamson, who could truly draw people away from Biden or whoever they ultimately throw up there who will parrot the narrative. He could get a lot of the anti-Pharma and anti-establishment left, and perhaps even more. But he also would call out some of their sacred cows during a primary and a debate with Biden (if dared to have one and they were able to pull him out of the basement) might just do Joe in. That’s what they fear.


That would explain the vitriol that Tapper is throwing out there. We’ve seen this when there’s any candidate that stands in the way of that narrative, in particular with Trump. But even with milquetoast Mitt Romney in 2012, the media tried to demonize him when he was running, even suggesting that he was endangering dogs. Anyone who isn’t with them must be savaged and thrown under the bus. It’s not even party sensitive as this shows.

It shows just how nasty they can be and how far they are willing to go. This highlights it for everyone to see. And they do. And such things always backfire, making the person they attack more powerful and attracting more interest.
