Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. ripped into House Democrats over their “hypocrisy” on anti-Semitism in their attempts to shut him down during his testimony during a House hearing this week on censorship. 

In a Twitter thread on Saturday, Kennedy went after Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) over her support of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY). Schultz attacked Kennedy on Thursday during a Republican-led censorship hearing.

During the hearing, Schultz moved to shift the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government hearing to executive session “because Mr. Kennedy has repeatedly made despicable anti-Semitic and anti-Asian comments as recently as last week.”

Schultz cited, “among many other things,” comments Kennedy recently made about COVID-19, which the candidate says have been misconstrued.

“COVID-19, there is an argument that it is ethnically targeted. COVID-19 attacks certain races disproportionately,” Kennedy said, according to The New York Post. “COVID-19 is targeted to attack Caucasians and black people. The people who are most immune are Ashkenazi Jews and Chinese.”

“Ok. Let’s heap a few more layers of irony on the mountain of paradox and hypocrisy that Congressional Democrats created Thursday in their attempt to censor me from speaking at the censorship hearings,” Kennedy began in his Twitter thread. 

“Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who led the pitchfork brigade by trying to muzzle me with false accusations of racism and antisemitism, in 2016 lost her post running the DNC when leaked documents revealed that her DNC staffers were routinely and cynically using anti-Semitism to take down [Sen. Bernie Sanders],” he added. 

Kennedy then shifted  his attack to hitting Schultz over comments made by Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

“[Wasserman Schultz] has not only refused to condemn the overt anti-Semitic rhetoric of [Tlaib] and Ilhan Omar, but she supported Omar’s appointment to the Foreign Relations Committee despite Omar’s advocacy of a boycott of Israel,” he tweeted. “Omar used that platform to issue regular libels against Israel and Jews that include references to Jews and their ‘Benjamins.’”


Kennedy also criticized Schultz for “loyally” defending far-Left House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), who “once invited his uncle Leonard Jeffries to speak at CUNY, a platform he used to explain that the Jewish community was ‘pro-Nazi.’”

According to The New York Post, Jeffries invited his uncle, who has a history of making disparaging comments toward both Jews and white people, to speak at Binghamton University (which is a SUNY school).

“I won’t be lectured to about antisemitism from Democratic lawmakers like Wasserman Schultz who voted to give Iran $150b while that regime promises a new Holocaust against the Jews. #Kennedy24,” he concluded. 

Kennedy has polled as high as 19% among Democrat presidential primary voters, and has been critical of Big Tech censorship on topics related to the COVID vaccine.
