Robert F. Kennedy Jr. insists that he’s “pro-vaccine,” but his actions and writings say otherwise. However, even we didn’t think the once respected public figure would sink this low — peddling his anti-vaccine message at a Scientology facility Thursday night in order to alarm the black community of Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles Times reported recently how Kennedy has become such a demagogue on the issue, he had to apologize recently for claiming that a (scientifically debunked) link between vaccines and autism was causing a “holocaust” in this country.
“I want to apologize to all whom I offended by my use of the word ‘holocaust,’” the son of former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy said after that misstep. But at least that was in the heat of the moment during a debate in Sacramento, where lawmakers are considering a bill that would restrict the ability of parents to opt out of vaccinations for their children.
But this time, Kennedy really had no excuse. He chose to address two groups about as anti-science as it gets, and both of whom contain elements of science fiction nuttiness in their belief systems — the Church of Scientology and the Nation of Islam.
