RFK Jr. says Bill Gates, WEF 'hijacked' climate narrative to achieve 'totalitarian controls'
"My approach to climate has always been a free market approach… we should use marketplace rules rather than top-down controls."
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2024, didn’t mince words when discussing certain "elites" like Bill Gates and leaders of the World Economic Forum (WEF), whom he accused of using the "climate narrative" to gain "top-down totalitarian controls" of societies.
Kennedy made his remarks in a Tuesday "Virtual Health Policy Roundtable" on Zoom, which featured several doctors and others Kennedy described as "critics of prevailing health policy." During the round table, Kennedy was asked how he would ease the minds of the next generation surrounding climate change, to which he responded by criticizing those he views as responsible for the climate hysteria.
"I think that the climate narrative has been hijacked by the World Economic Forum and by Bill Gates," Kennedy said. "Crises are used by elites within societies to consolidate their power, to diminish democracy, to constrict civil rights and human rights, and to impose top-down totalitarian controls."
"I think the climate crisis is being used in that way by those people," he added.
Kennedy proceeded to offer his solution to climate issues. "My approach to climate has always been a free market approach… we should use marketplace rules rather than top-down controls, we should reward the cheapest, most efficient energy sources," which he "generally" feels to be renewables.
He then said he doesn’t try "scaring people" with CO2 emissions but has focused on "getting off of coal."
