Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has officially become an enemy of the Democratic Party.
He announced his run for president as an independent candidate.
And RFK Jr. made one policy announcement that has the Left scared stiff about his independent 2024 bid.
RFK Jr. has been a thorn in the side of the Democrats ever since the height of the COVID regime when he spoke out against government excesses.
He then launched a primary challenge against Joe Biden, which drew condemnation from the Democrats and their media allies.
When Kennedy announced his run as an independent candidate, his own family denounced him.
His siblings wrote in a statement, “The decision of our brother Bobby to run as a third party candidate against Joe Biden is dangerous to our country. ‘Bobby might share the same name as our father, but he does not share the same values, vision or judgment. Today’s announcement is deeply saddening for us. We denounce his candidacy and believe it to be perilous for our country.”
Their concern is that Kennedy will pull more votes from Biden than the Republican candidate.
Despite Kennedy’s mild support among people on the Right who agree with his COVID stance, he’s still a liberal at heart who appears to be listening to his campaign manager – former Democrat Ohio Congressman and perennial 2000’s presidential also-ran candidate Dennis Kucinich – and is signaling support for a policy that will bankrupt the country.
RFK Jr’s handlers are betting his support for one nation-bankrupting policy will draw votes from Joe Biden during the 2024 General Election
Kennedy said in a recently-released campaign statement, “Communities that were specifically targeted for destruction need to be specifically targeted for repair. During Jim Crow, Black banks, businesses, hospitals, schools, and farms were targeted for destruction. Racists knew that without these, the Black community had no chance of building wealth. We must set federal dollars aside to rebuild Black infrastructure…[B]ecause there are so many Black communities in need, this program will channel significant resources toward the rebuilding of these most devastated of communities.”
Kucinich’s strategy for Kennedy’s independent campaign just might work even if the policy is completely bonkers
Leaving aside the financial infeasibility of federal reparations for a country that’s $33 trillion in debt, the Left refuses to address the underlying conditions that have led to urban decay in many areas.
For example, so long as George Soros prosecutors are implementing pro-crime policies that put repeat criminals back on the streets, the conditions for community flourishing will not be met.
So long as children are trapped in failing public schools that are more concerned with gender indoctrination and neo-Marxist propaganda, the next generation will not be prepared to participate in the economy.
