During an interview with leftist outlet Reason, Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr challenged the hosts to prove him wrong when they suggested that he continually spreads conspiracy theories.
Reason editor at large Nick Gillespie told RFK Jr “One of the critiques of your candidacy or even your public profile is that you traffic routinely in conspiracies and that kind of conspiracist mindset where almost everything that we take for granted is bad.”
“So it’s, you know, the Covid vaccines, you know, not only don’t work, but they’re more dangerous than Covid itself,” Gillespie continued, going on to reel off a list of ‘conspiracies’ that RFK has endorsed.
5G and Wi-Fi are controlling, you know, controlling our mind. The government, you know, aspects of the government that are supposed to be in favor of trying to help people, actually hurting them. AIDS is not, you know, primarily caused by HIV or HIV is not involved in AIDS. Atrazine is changing frog sexuality and by implication, human sexuality. Your cousin is not, your cousin Michael Skakel is not guilty of the murder of Martha Moxley that he was found guilty of.
You know, the 2004 election in Ohio was stolen. It kind of goes on and on. Do you how do you answer people who say, you know, like this is the sign of somebody whose thinking is fundamentally conspiracy-minded rather than kind of dealing with brute reality? You know, that is difficult and, you know, and terrible, but is not what you seem to be making of it.
However, when Kennedy asked Gillespie to “show me where I get it wrong,” and offered to go through each example point by point, the host didn’t seem too keen.
“You did something that is very unfair. Which is, you made a series of characterizations of my beliefs that you read in the newspapers. Many of which are just wrong,” Kennedy stated.
Conspiracy Theory is a CIA term that was formulated to keep people from investigating government corruption. Specially the intelligence agencies crimes.— MadCubaninTucson (@Arielhe97434333) July 3, 2023
This was a horrible interview - almost dishonest. I would have liked to hear he responses to each of the points.— FLBIII Deux (@Jane4UsGirls) July 3, 2023
Will you identify those that turned out to be true??— rgEPhoto🇺🇸Ŧ (@rgeasley) July 3, 2023
He wasn’t confronted. He was hit with accusations & given no chance to explain himself. The interviewer was gutless. If it was 1% true he would have given RFK the rope to hang himself— Keith Shilts (@KeithAShilts) July 4, 2023
Funny how you cut off his response once he had a chance to defend himself.— Dipperful (@Dipperful) July 3, 2023
Great journalism. 💩
