It’s because of something about how America can only be destroyed from within. And apparently, Kennedy thinks hog farmers are out to destroy America. They’ve already corrupted every single politician in North Carolina! Even Oprah agrees with Kennedy, which means that it MUST be true.
This little debate between Kennedy and Rep. Steve King (R-IA) gets juicy, so see the video below. It ends with some major pwnage of Kennedy by King.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Wednesday said he thinks hog farmers are a greater threat to Americans than Osama bin Laden.
Mr. Kennedy, son of the the slain New York Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, is an environmental law attorney who was testifying before a House Judiciary subcomittee when Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican, asked him if a quotation attributed to him in 2002 about hog farmers representing a greater threat than the leader of al Qaeda was accurate.
“I don’t know if that [quotation] is accurate, but I believe it and I support it,” said Mr. Kennedy, who has been involved in a vigorous legal effort against the meat industry for some years, arguing that manure and other products associated with large livestock producers emit toxic wastes that threaten the environment.
Mr. Kennedy also has said that a single hog consignment can put out more pollution than a city of a million people.
He has also said that every public official in North Carolina has been corrupted by the pork industry. He cited as evidence an editorial in a Raleigh newspaper, although he also said there may be some exceptions.
The Washington Times article also says that Kennedy plans on going after all large farms in America, not just hog farmers. If that is true, then it says a lot. I mean, think about it: how does shutting down every large farm in America do us any good whatsoever, let alone make us safer? But then again, if the goal is to destroy America, then Democrats are surely on the right track. Is there anything they can’t — or won’t — screw up?
Of course, taking a nutjob like RFK Jr seriously is in and of itself ridiculous. I don’t recall pigs every flying planes into any buildings, for example.
