RFK Jr: Republicans Treasonous, Will Sell America To Foreigners
Libtalker Praises Grandfather As Paragon Of Virtue
With a Republican even occupying the Senate held for decades by Ted Kennedy, attitudes toward what liberals call "America's royal family" are decidedly more balanced these days. We know they weren't angels.
But to Robert F Kennedy Jr, the myths endure: during a libtalk radio interview Thursday, he praised his grandfather as a paragon of virtue who stood up for American patriotism while others parked profits overseas to evade taxes.
In RFK Jr's convenient world, circa-1929 stock market manipulation, rum-running and political trickery are apparently fabrications concocted by enemies for personal gain. Is this mere brain decay, or a deliberate attempt to rewrite family history?
Meanwhile, treasonous, evil Republicans can't wait to privatize public institutions for sale to foreigners at a quick profit. Can you follow his twisted logic?
ROBERT F KENNEDY JR (17:46): My grandfather used to, there was a guy who was putting his money, keeping it, shifted his corporations and his citizenship to the Bahamas and my grandfather, I remember how angry he was, he said that's treason to the United States.
Kennedy maintains a liberal radio show which has continued since the demise of Air America. His co-host: notorious trial lawyer Mike Papantonio, who was filling in for Ed Schultz during this particular program.
