The Kennedys are, arguably, one of the most well-known political clans in the world. However, Robert Kennedy Jr., an ardent fan of Bitcoin, manages to stand out, and only sometimes for the right reasons.
No, not the famous President of America, Robert F. Kennedy, shot dead in 1963, but his nephew, Robert Kennedy Jr., an American lawyer and a presidential hopeful.

The crypto community has likely heard of him since Robert Kennedy Jr. agreed to accept campaign donations in Bitcoin. On several occasions, he also embraced the mother of all crypto to preserve the individual’s financial freedom.

However, there is also a different side to Robert, a far less alluring one, featuring many contentious statements and actions. Today, we will tell you all about it.

Robert Kennedy Jr. liked “golden brown.”

Or better known as heroin, a highly addictive and dangerous drug. In his own words, Kennedy was a heroin addict for fourteen years and considered himself lucky to be alive. 

“People have plenty of reason to write me off forever because of the way I conducted my life during that fourteen-year period. And, when I was at Riverkeeper, I made a point of hiring people who were felons, who were convicted, who had served their time in prison,” he told the New Yorker in a lengthy interview.

Kennedy eventually quit, graduated from Harvard University with a law degree, and now he makes millions of dollars a year. 

Robert Kennedy Jr. dislikes lockdowns (a lot)

At the height of the coronavirus pandemic, Anthony Fauci, the US's former top infectious-disease doctor, was among those who advocated strict lockdowns. For Robert Kennedy Jr., this move was not necessary to stop hospitals from being filled up, but “2020’s historic coup d’état against Western democracy.” 

He wrote this in his 2021 book, “The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health (Children’s Health Defense),” available on Amazon.

As you might be suspecting the book was something of a lampoon, with input from other skeptics such as the former Fox TV host Tucker Carlson 

In a similar vein, he went on a full-fledged offensive against COVID vaccines and the fact that platforms did not let him spew out conspiracy theories. Such as one of the most well-known ones, “The Plandemic.”

In other instances, he was caught saying that Wi-Fi causes a “leaky brain,” while technologies like 5G towers and digital currencies are totalitarian instruments. 

Robert Kennedy Jr. fancies a good CIA conspiracy

Given all this, it shouldn’t be a big surprise that he also questions who killed his uncle and father, both of whom were assassinated. This is what he told the New Yorker: “I don’t think anybody who has looked at my uncle’s murder seriously believes that the Warren Commission was correct. I’m a trial lawyer. I’ve tried hundreds of cases. I can guarantee you, looking at this case, that I could prove that my uncle’s death was caused by the C.I.A.”

He went on to claim that he had enough evidence to prove it and said that the CIA was angry with Robert Kennedy because he did not invade the Bay of Pigs to provide air cover. They, according to Kennedy Jr.,  considered this to be a betrayal. 

Robert Kennedy Jr. apologized to the victims of the Holocaust

Since Robert Kennedy Jr. is an anti-vaxxer and a zealous one, it is not much of a surprise that he has made controversial comparisons. For example, in 2021, he said at a Washington rally that Anne Frank, one of the most well-known Holocaust victims who died in a Nazi concentration camp, was better off than people who had to stay at home to avoid the virus.

His wife, the fictional wife of Larry David, in the iconic “Curb Your Enthusiasm” (directed by Robert D. Weide), Cheryl Hines, immediately condemned her husband, calling the reference to Anne Frank “reprehensible and insensitive.”

“The atrocities that millions endured during the Holocaust should never be compared to anyone or anything. His opinions are not a reflection of my own,” Hines tweeted.

Kennedy likewise apologized, saying that he wanted to use “examples of past barbarism to show the perils from new technologies of control.”

Recent opinion polling showed that Kennedy enjoyed 15 percent support among Democratic voters. The incumbent president, Joe Biden, enjoys significantly more support, with over 60% of Democrats preferring his candidacy.
