Several House Democrats have sent letters to Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) asking them to ban RFJ Jr. testified before the Jordanian government’s weapons subcommittee.

In the letter, Representatives Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Dan Goldman (D-NY), and Judy Chu (D-CA) partially wrote, “Mr. Kennedy tapped into a pernicious form of anti-Semitism that had been used for centuries. This technique was used by Hitler, claiming there were biological differences between ethnic or racist groups. A stepping stone to justifying the extermination of Jews during the Holocaust.”
Jim Jordan managed to make Republicans compare to Hitler by inviting Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to testify before an armed government subcommittee.
RFK Jr.’s comments about Jews being immune to COVID because the virus was designed to target a specific race is an insane, anti-Semitic conspiracy.
House Republicans like Jordan and McCarthy brought this upon themselves by trying to use a subcommittee whose goal was to help Trump and hurt Biden to elevate RFK Jr.
RFK Jr. is a well-known conspiracy theorist who had no chance of being a problem for President Biden in the Democratic presidential primaries, but he has become such a big problem for Jim Jordan that he could not be given a national platform to spread his views in congressional hearings.
