Anti-vaxx crackpot also a 1/6 apologist

The favorite candidate of libertarian tech bros strikes again!

The campaign of independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. sent out with a fundraising email Thursday referring to Jan. 6 defendants as “activists” who have been “stripped of their Constitutional liberties,” echoing former President Donald Trump’s rhetoric about the 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

In the appeal sent to supporters, signed by “Team Kennedy,” the campaign called for the exoneration of “political prisoner Julian Assange,” the founder of WikiLeaks, suggesting he and Jan. 6 defendants are victims of prosecutorial abuse.

“This is the reality that every American Citizen faces — from Ed Snowden, to Julian Assange to the J6 activists sitting in a Washington DC jail cell stripped of their Constitutional liberties. Please help our campaign call out the illiberal actions of our very own government,” the fundraising email read.

Please spare a thought for the January 6 “activists,” stripped of their “Constitutional liberties” by being convicted after a fair trial before a jury of their peers! (If Greenwald and Taibbi aren’t finding a way to get some cash out the Kennedy campaign they’re less competent grifters than I would give them credit for.)

Relatedly, and speaking of people who prefer fascism to liberalism:

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. repeatedly advanced an argument Monday that President Biden poses a greater threat to democracy than Donald Trump, a comment that drew swift rebukes from several historians and experts.

As appalling as this shit is on the merits, his apparent decision to focus on attracting fellow conspiracy nuts who are Trump and Trump-curious is certainly better than the alternative. Hopefully, none of his big money Republican donors will think to explain it to him.
