Democrat Party is the part of ‘fear, war and censorship… neocons with woke bobble-heads’ ~Robert F. Kennedy

Fix News is finished, having just fired their only attraction, Tucker Carlson. As a writer who put in years of sustained antiwar writing against Genghis Bush and the neocon coterie—who burned (and consequently burnt-out) as hot as a Babylonian kiln against invasions backed 100 percent by Faux New and its blond war-porn flank—something just short of total extinction seems a fitting fate for Fox. The foolish firing of their top rated host, and one of the highest-ranking cable news shows in the country, is sure to hasten the death rattle of the War Porn channel.
Evil And Envy
Fox News has thus cemented its unimpeachable credentials as lickspittle of the Republican Party, which it always was until Tucker. Just so there’s no confusion: the Party is exulting in Tucker’s ousting.
The intuitive and likely most base reason for the ouster of Tucker tracks with human nature: evil and envy strive for mediocrity.
The instinct of man is evil from his youth ~Genesis 8:21
Or, in the language of statistics, it’s the regression toward the mean; the quest in America for mediocrity:
“Tocqueville in the 19th century, and Solzhenitsyn in the 20th, noted that conformity of thought is powerfully prevalent among Americans,” observed my friend Clyde Wilson, professor of history at the University of South Carolina and the foremost scholar of John C. Calhoun.
So, too, do the responses from the mediocre media—and I flatter them—where one sees nothing but schadenfreude (“joy derived from the misfortunes of others”), track with the theory of evil and envy.
Fox News is an echo of the Republican Party, which serves the deep, warfare, industry-captured state.
Robert F. Kennedy, on the other hand, is “a choice, not an echo.”
One need not agree with every word Kennedy spoke in a pellucid address announcing for president, almost two hours long, delivered extemporaneously, to grasp that, on the defining issues of our time, almost all of which Kennedy addressed in depth and in detail, Robert F. Kennedy is right and righteous.
Of the welter of words spoken so very beautifully—for a man with a disorder of the vocal cords—Kennedy, Jr underplayed perhaps two issues and failed to mention but one crucial matter, while delivering a riveting information-dense address, at once deep and philosophical, yet wise and pragmatic, undergirded by historic and constitutional truth. Tactical to boot.
Against The Deep, Warfare, Woke, Industry-Captured State
The overarching impetus of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr’s announcement is this:
Americans live and labor under an illiberal, unconstitutional, oppressive administrative state. Our representatives are meant to make law. How, then, has this vast bureaucracy, captured by globe-straddling industries, acquired tyrannical law-making powers! Most certainly not constitutionally.
Candidate Kennedy astutely connects the corrupt merger of state and corporate power with the events, stateside and abroad; past and present, unfolding around us—from the collapse of the dollar, the murder of the middle-class via Covid crackdowns and lockdowns (courtesy of the pharma-state), to inflation (Federal Reserve Bank), to the sundering of individual and constitutional rights, to war forevermore (in service of the military-industrial-complex against which Dwight Eisenhower and John Quincy forewarned). …

UPDATED (5/3): From my April 27, 2023 column, “First, They Came For Tucker Carlson; Next Is Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.“:
“Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., will need to address the border, as that by-now meaningless phrase goes. He has not. If he cares about the poor of his country, he must convince them that he is not part of the Ted Kennedy Fifth Column, which, in 1965, wrote the multicultural legislation that altered America forever. Kennedy Jr. will need to plug the border down South and, ideally, expel Biden’s legions of foreign invaders. If you are championing the middle-class and the working poor you cannot swamp their country with an unending supply of labor”
RFK, Jr., did so today, May 3:
Is it possible to be pro-immigration AND pro closing the border? Yes. America should be a haven of freedom and prosperity, open to law-abiding migrants who will contribute to our society. However, immigration must proceed in an orderly, lawful manner. Right now we have chaos at…
— Robert F. Kennedy Jr (@RobertKennedyJr) May 3, 2023
While this isn’t nearly enough—RFK, Jr’s promise on immigration is no less than the Republicans have ever offered, and failed to deliver while in control of the presidency, both chambers and the gubernatorial landscape.
Ilana, might you happen to know how RFK, Jr was able to go to Europe in 2021 in his unvaccinated status? At least, I think he didn’t get the Covid shot. I think it was Italy he went to, perhaps other countries. I’m pretty certain in 2021 for a traveler to enter Italy, the person need to be vaccinated. Did RFK, Jr. receive a variance or exception to be able to enter Italy?
No idea. Many countries are not as Dark Ages as the USA, which still bans entry of the unvaccinated. On the other hand, Europeans might have a good deal of adulation for RFK, Jr’s celebrity.
I doubt RFK, Jr., a conspiratorial anti-vaxer, has taken the COVID hemlock. I have no problem accepting that Europeans might have made an exception for a Kennedy. Or, maybe Italy required a test, not a vax.
Thank you. I read up a little bit on Italy in 2021. If I was looking at accurate information, it seems Italy eased up on restrictions for travel into Italy in mid 2021. I was thinking restrictions were still very tough then, in Europe. Was just wondering, thanks again.
