Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Likens Effects Of Mandatory Vaccines To A Holocaust

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has displeased a large group of people by comparing the effects of mandatory vaccinations to a “holocaust”. He has now made a formal apology  in a statement just released.

J Weekly reports:

“I want to apologize to all whom I offended by my use of the word ‘holocaust’ to describe the autism epidemic,” Kennedy, an environmental activist who has joined the opposition to mandatory vaccines, said on April 13.

The likening of vaccines to a holocaust was “inappropriate and insensitive,” the Anti-Defamation League said.

Kennedy, son of the assassinated liberal icon Robert Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy, linked vaccines to autism and likened the practice to a holocaust while campaigning in California earlier this month against legislation that would mandate vaccinations for children.

“They get the shot, that night they have a fever of 103, they go to sleep, and three months later their brain is gone,” Kennedy was quoted by the Sacramento Bee as saying April 7 at a screening of an anti-vaccination film in the city. “This is a holocaust, what this is doing to our country.”

Deborah Lauter, the ADL’s director of civil rights, criticized Kennedy in a statement.

“We object to Robert Kennedy Jr.’s insensitive and inappropriate comment that vaccinating children in the U.S. constitutes a ‘Holocaust,’” the statement said. “Six million Jews and countless others were systematically slaughtered by the Nazis under Hitler. Such inappropriate analogies only serve to trivialize the Holocaust and are deeply offensive to Jews and other survivors, as well as those Americans who fought valiantly against the Nazis in World War II.”

The consensus in the scientific community rejects any link between vaccines and autism and maintains that side effects to vaccines are minimal, although a vocal and persistent minority continues to campaign against mandatory vaccinations.

Lauter said the ADL urges Kennedy “to refrain from using Holocaust imagery to make his points.” — jta

    I don’t understand how the comments could have been construed as trivializing any issue.
    Thousands of children are being murdered or left brain dead vegetables because of totalitarian mass medical experiments on the general population which will soon be enforced if they get their way.
    How can mass murder of children and enforced autism and extreme disability be seen as anything but a holocaust.
    It is the complainers who trivialize the issue.

    The word Holocaust is used in other settings and in other nations when huge numbers of people are victims! I saw nothing wrong with the use of that word in this scenario and am finding it difficult to come up with another more appropriate word for what is happening to our nation’s children!

    It is not vaccine-induced autism which is a provable Holohoax, nor is it thinly-veiled false-Jew Talmud/Zionist Organized Crime mobsters’ acting as satanic PC police trying to bring to justice those known to have killed John, Martin, and Bobby.
