There are flag waving patriots who preach the corporate-state party line, sending our children to endless wars, and there are real patriots who stand up, challenge and reveal corruption in that corporate-state. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., is heroic in his advocacy for children’s wellbeing and safety. We must all do the same. mm

Americans Can Handle an Open Discussion on Vaccines—RFK, Jr. Responds to Criticism from His Family
CHD NOTE: In early May 2019, Politico Magazine published an article written by three of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s relatives, criticizing his advocacy for safe vaccines. After numerous requests, Politico magazine has refused to publish his response.
By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
My uncle and my father argued that in a free and open society, the response to difficult questions should never be to shut down debate. What we need is science, not censorship.
Three of my Kennedy relatives recently published an article criticizing my advocacy for safe vaccines. Our contentious family dispute highlights the fierce national donnybrook over vaccinations that has divided communities and raised doubts about the Democratic Party’s commitment to some of its defining values: abhorrence of censorship, wariness toward excessive corporate power, support for free speech, religious freedom, and personal sovereignty over our bodies, and the rights of citizens (codified in the Nuremberg Code and other treaties to which we are signatories) to decline unwanted government-mandated medical interventions. The debate has also raised questions about the independence of our press and its role as a champion of free speech, and First Amendment rights and as a bulwark against overreaching by government and corporations.
