RFK Jr.’s Opening Statement At Important Hearing Is Jaw-Dropping And Profound

Let me say right up front that I am not urging anyone to vote for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. That is not the topic of this post. Rather, it concerns the opening remarks he made during this week’s meeting of the House Select Committee regarding the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

Representative Chip Roy (R-TX) introduced Kennedy after opening remarks from Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) as well as Ranking Member Stacey Plaskett (D-V.I.), and after committee Democrats conveyed concern about the length of time Kennedy would be allowed to speak, Kennedy gave an opening statement after putting aside his prepared statements to proceed directly with a number of the accusations made against him and speak to a much bigger issue. If you missed it, it’s worth watching or listening to.

The quotes from Kennedy are listed below.

“I appreciate that, Mr. Chairman. This body should be concerned with issues that directly affect the American people, such as the rising cost of groceries, which has increased by 76 percent over the last two years for basic food items, the conflict in Ukraine, inflationary issues, border concerns, and a host of other issues that affect us all as a nation. I want to start by setting aside my written statement for a few moments to address this point, which I believe the Ranking Member made. Without the First Amendment and without discussion, we cannot achieve it.”

“Two months ago, in Boston, I delivered my address — my declaration speech…I discussed each of those topics. I concentrated on the food. I concentrated on the reality that Americans from the working class no longer had the means to reside here. I brought up the topic of inflation and all the problems that greatly trouble you and to which you’ve spent your professional life. YouTube de-platformed me roughly five minutes into my speech when I started talking about Paul Revere. I avoided mentioning vaccinations in that address. I avoided discussing any topics that were taboo. I was simply discussing my campaign and other topics, as well as the dialogue that Americans should be having with one another.”
