Why RFK, Jr. Can Never Be Elected to Any Office
RFK, Jr. is 100% right about Anthony Fauci and the government’s insane, destructive response to the COVID pandemic. And that, my friends, is pretty much the only thing he is right about.
If you are even remotely considering giving money to RFK, Jr.’s political campaign, or supporting him if he mounts a 3rd-party candidacy - which appears increasingly likely - you need to read the thread he posted on Twitter Saturday before fully making up your mind. You can find the thread at this link, or just read it below.
Here you go:
Now, pollution from plastics is a global problem to some extent, but mainly it is a problem created by two nations: China and India. Those two countries are by themselves responsible for the vast majority of plastics pollution globally, and nothing we do in the U.S. will make a dent in the issue until those two countries act to address the problem themselves.
This is simply unarguable.
So, this series of idiotic promises by RFK, Jr. would sacrifice a huge portion of the U.S. economy at the altar of climate alarmism for pretty much no real return whatsoever. Because he’s a leftwing Democrat, and this is what leftwing Democrats do. See the Biden energy/environment policy as a prime example.
Item #7 on that list is especially egregious and highly destructive to our society. The banning of hydraulic fracturing would have the following impacts:
Throw our economy into an instant recession, if not a depression;
Render the U.S. almost entirely dependent on imports of oil and natural gas from often hostile foreign nations;
Send the cost of all forms of energy instantly into the stratosphere to keep company with all that Hunga Tonga-Hunga water vapor;
Render the U.S. even more subservient to China and Russia for its energy security than it already is.
And that’s just the high points.
The bottom line here is that this promise alone is completely disqualifying of the RFK, Jr. candidacy.
Don’t give money to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and don’t even think about voting for him for any office whatseover.
He’s right about a couple of things, but he is entirely and dangerously wrong about pretty much everything else.
That is all.
