RFK, Jr. Hits Back at New York Post Accusations

LOS ANGELES, CA—JULY 16, 2023—Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. hit back Saturday at charges of anti-Semitism contained in an article by Jon Levine in the New York Post.

Kennedy issued the following statement:

“The New York Post story is mistaken. I have never, ever suggested that the COVID-19 virus was engineered to ‘spare Jews,” and I unequivocally reject this disgusting and outlandish conspiracy theory.

“New York Post reporter Jon Levine exploited this off-the-record conversation to smear me as an anti-Semite. This cynical maneuver is consistent with the mainstream media playbook to discredit me as a crank — and by association, to discredit revelations of genuine corruption and collusion.”

As Joel Pollak points out in a Breitbart column today, Kennedy never actually said that the coronavirus was “ethnically targeted to spare Jews.”

“It was Levine, and not myself, who invoked anti-Semitic tropes when he attributed words to me (that Covid was engineered to “spare the Jews”),” said Kennedy. “Levine is fabricating an opinion, attributing it to me, and trolling for scandal.”

“By cynically leveling anti-Semitism charges, Levine devalues the term at a time when REAL anti-Semitism is rampant. What’s more, by using the racially-charged words, ‘sparing Jews,’ with their Biblical associations, he is inflaming fear, hate, and suspicion.”

Kennedy says that he will be sending a demand to Levine at the New York Post for a retraction of the article.

Kennedy also confirmed that both the U.S. and China have done research into ethnically-targeted bioweapons. “History shows that Jews, Africans, and the indigenous have the most to fear from such technologies,” he said. “We must rein in all bioweapons research, whether these weapons are ethnically targeted or not. We saw what COVID did to the world when it was leaked from a laboratory. “

Mr. Kennedy also recorded a conversation on this issue with Rabbi Shmuley in which he reaffirmed his non-negotiable support for the Jewish people and the state of Israel.
