ACTION ALERT: Secret Service Protection for RFK Jr.

Written by

In the light of the recent events in Los Angeles, Jim DiEugenio makes the case for Secret Service protection for RFK, Jr.

To Our Readers:

There was a very strange event in Los Angeles on late Friday afternoon. Robert Kennedy Jr. was delivering a speech at a theater just two miles from the old Ambassador Hotel, where his father was assassinated. A man approached him brandishing two loaded guns with one in his backpack. The man had previously posted on Tik Tok, closing his message by saying Donald Trump was the president. The man was stopped and then arrested by the LAPD. 

There was next to no coverage of this strange event in the MSM. But in the face of this, why has the DHS not granted Kennedy Secret Service protection? After the murder of Robert Kennedy in Los Angeles in 1968 candidates for president were provided Secret Service protection. The turnaround time after the request was usually 14 days. But when Kennedy requested it, after 88 days it was denied. Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas wrote, “I have determined that Secret Service protection for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is not warranted at this time.” The Kennedy submission included a 67 page report describing security and safety requests including death threats. The reply was that this was only granted 120 days prior to a general election. Which would mean it would be denied to Kennedy almost throughout the primary season. Yet, to mention just one example, when Barack Obama requested it in 2007, prior to the primary season, it was accorded to him. Donald Trump was also in that category.

This combination of the DNC and the corporate media has done everything it can to try and marginalize Robert Kennedy Jr. and his candidacy. Is this the ultimate marginalization? Whether or not the incident on Friday was real or the man was deluded, it certainly does seem to point out a need for protection. (See this segment of Strange Bedfellows for a discussion of the affair)

Please notify Secretary Mayorkas for a reversal of this decision.
