Robert F. Kennedy Jr. headlined a “Defeat the Mandates” rally in Washington DC and claimed that vaccine mandates are worse than the Holocaust. This was publicized as an anti-mandate rally, but many of the people there were openly anti-vaccine. Kennedy made the case that at least Jews and other minority groups in Nazi Germany had a chance at hiding or escaping. He said, “today, the mechanisms are being put in place that will make it so none of us can run and none of us can hide.”
The Auschwitz Memorial put out a statement condemning the comparison saying, “exploiting of the tragedy of people who suffered, were humiliated, tortured & murdered by the totalitarian regime of Nazi Germany — including children like Anne Frank — in a debate about vaccines & limitations during a global pandemic is a sad symptom of moral & intellectual decay.” Kennedy also touched on a few other conspiracy theories in a subtle way meant to appeal to those who are worried about 5G and low orbit satellites. While RFK Jr. has done great work in some areas including environmental law, this speech can potentially do a tremendous amount of damage.
