‘This is evil’: RFK Jr evokes father’s assassination after he’s DENIED Secret Service protection

Democratic presidential candidate Robert Kennedy Jr. has accused the Biden administration of denying him the very protection that has been extended to presidential candidates since his father, Robert F. Kennedy Sr., was tragically assassinated in 1968.

“Since the assassination of my father in 1968, candidates for president are provided Secret Service protection. But not me,” Kennedy revealed in a Friday X post.

“Typical turnaround time for pro forma protection requests from presidential candidates is 14-days,” he explained. “After 88-days of no response and after several follow-ups by our campaign, the Biden Administration just denied our request.”

Kennedy quoted U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas as saying, “I have determined that Secret Service protection for Robert F Kennedy Jr is not warranted at this time.”

“Our campaign’s request included a 67-page report from the world’s leading protection firm, detailing unique and well established security and safety risks aside from commonplace death threats,” Kennedy stated.


According to a 2008 report from NPR, the U.S. Secret Service “was essentially created June 5, 1968 — the night Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was shot at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.”

“Kennedy had several bodyguards with him, including football star Roosevelt ‘Rosey’ Grier, as he addressed a crowd gathered to support his bid for the White House. But there were no Secret Service agents present because before 1968, their services weren’t afforded to presidential candidates,” NPR continued. “That policy changed after Kennedy’s assassination.”

The denial of that protection to RFK Jr. has sparked an immediate backlash from those who see it as yet another example of President Biden’s weaponization of federal agencies.

“If this is true – it is monstrous,” stated Glenn Beck. “I am again not a fan of RFKjr’s policies, but when will America see that the ruling class is operating like a mob family. #standup.”

“Mayorkas acts like a person who is being blackmailed, so that’s my working assumption,” noted Dilbert creator Scott Adams. “No one could be this bad by accident.”

“Incredible. Absolutely incredible,” said Blaze host Jason Whitlock. “This is evil.”

“Not only is there a dual system of justice, now we have a dual system of protection,” said Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). “RFK Jr., along with any other presidential candidates facing real threats need Secret Service protection. Denying him protection is simply wrong.”
