Robert F. Kennedy Jr., is feeling heat after telling a crowd gathered at a rally on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on Sunday that the control over society today is comparable to “Hitler’s Germany.'”

Speaking at the Defeat the Mandates rally he organized, the son of former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy used the reference to explain that while it was possible to escape the grasp of the Nazis in Germany — few were successful in doing so — that is was impossible to escape today’s “technological mechanisms,” arguing that vaccine mandates, 5G technology, digital currency and low orbit satellites would be used to establish authoritarian rule, according to the Daily Mail.

The Auschwitz Memorial Twitter account responded to Kennedy online, accusing him of “exploiting” the tragedy of the Holocaust.

“Exploiting of the tragedy of people who suffered, were humiliated, tortured & murdered by the totalitarian regime of Nazi Germany – including children like Anne Frank – in a debate about vaccines & limitations during global pandemic is a sad symptom of moral & intellectual decay.

“What we’re seeing today, what we’re seeing today, is what I call turnkey totalitarianism,” Kennedy said. “They are putting in place all of these technological mechanisms for control we’ve never seen before. It’s been the ambition of every totalitarian state from the beginning of mankind to control every aspect of behavior, of conduct, of thought, and to obliterate dissent. None of them have been able to do it. They didn’t have the technological capacity.”

“Even in Hitler’s Germany, you could cross the Alps into Switzerland, you could hide in an attic like Anne Frank did,” he continued. “I visited in 1962 East Germany with my father, and met people who had climbed the wall and escaped, so it was possible — many died doing it, but it was possible.”

Anne Frank hid in an attic in Amsterdam attic with seven other persecuted Jews for 761 days before her family was discovered and sent to die in concentration camps.

“Today, the mechanisms are being put in place to make it so that none of us can run and none of us can hide,” Kennedy said.

“Within five years, we’re gonna see 415,000 low orbit satellites – Bill Gates said his 65,000 satellites alone will be able to locate every square inch of the planet 24 hours a day. They’re putting in 5G to harvest our data and control our behavior. Digital currency that will allow them to punish us from a distance and cut off our food supply,” he explained.

Kennedy denounced vaccine passports, according to the Daily Mail, telling rallygoers that “as flawed as our government is, you still have rights. The minute they hand you that vaccine passport, every right that you have is transformed into a privilege contingent upon your obedience to arbitrary government dictates. It will make you a slave!”

Thousands turned out for the rally, with some estimates as high as 30,000. Many of those in attendance did not wear masks, despite DC Mayor Muriel Bowser mandating that the unvaccinated mask up when gathered in large groups outside, the British newspaper reported.

“Americans want democracy back, and this rally is a demand by Americans to get their democracy back,” Kennedy told WUSA9 ahead of the event.

He also took a shot at the media in dismissing concerns about the rally being a super-spreader event.

“Listen, any rally that you have in D.C. can be a super-spreader event,” Kennedy said. “And I don’t expect that this will be, I can’t guarantee anything. All I can say is people have the right to petition their government. And the press has been encouraging all kinds of public gatherings if they fit the narrative. It’s only if, those issues are only raised if it’s a gathering that doesn’t fit the narrative.”

As for those quick to cite the violence seen at the  Jan. 6, 2021 protest at the U.S. Capitol, Kennedy said, “Historically, people have been very well-behaved and I believe at this rally people will be very well behaved.”

Kennedy is frequently slammed as a conspiracy theorist and the critics came out in force in response to the rally, led by CNN anchor Jake Tapper. Here’s a quick sampling of the responses seen on Twitter:
