On Thursday, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said on the Joe Rogan Experience that he has to "be careful" of the government intelligence agencies that he believes killed his uncle John F. Kennedy.
During the interview, Kennedy said his uncle, John F. Kennedy, "Was at war with his military and intelligence apparatus" after he said he wanted to "take the CIA and shatter it into 1,000 pieces" who he said had lied to get him to invade Cuba.
Kennedy discussed his uncle's refusal to send soldiers into Vietnam at the military-industrial complex's request. He noted that JFK was killed a month after ordering all troops out of Vietnam when he determined that 75 Americans who were killed in the country were too many.
"He believed that the view of Americans abroad should not be, you know, a soldier with a gun. It should be a Peace Corps volunteer building, you know, wells," Kennedy said, "it should be USA ID helping poor people and it should be Alliance for Progress building middle class. And that's what he did. And he started the Kennedy Milk Program to you know, give nutrition to the poor kids all over the world. As a result of that, in Africa today, there's more statues to John Kennedy, more boulevards, named after more hospitals, schools, universities, avenues, and all the major cities named after him than any other president," he noted.
The podcast host asked him, "What do you think happens when you get an office? Like if you're, you're talking about your uncle, who was assassinated and you believe the intelligence agencies were part of that. What happens to you?"
"I gotta be careful. And I'm aware of that and I, you know, I'm aware of the - of that danger," Kennedy responded. "I don't live in fear of it. You know, at all, but I'm not stupid about it, and I take precautions."
According to the Daily Caller, RFK Jr. is President Joe Biden's biggest challenger in the 2024 Democrat primary, polling at 20%. In terms of favorability, an Economist/YouGov poll from June 10-13 has him with a 49% favorable rating; the best candidate of either party.
