Seems like too much of a stretch to me personally. Chillpilled (talk) 22:56, 28 July 2023 (UTC)
The whole tweet is nonsensical. It only starts making sense when you realize it's constructed around those two numbers. 2003:D8:4709:890:2CE5:4D2B:D24E:E810 (talk) 09:16, 29 July 2023 (UTC)

"I'm not antivaxx"[edit]

Kennedy's claim of not being antivaxx is contradicted by the fact that he's alienated most of his own family. I believe that indicates he's a true believer, so either RFK is lying or genuinely had a change of heart. I personally think he's full of shit given he's running for POTUS, but maybe... What's the general consensus here on the wiki? Carthage (talk) 20:33, 18 December 2023 (UTC)

I think RFKjr is full of shit. A "change of heart" is awfully unlikely. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 21:26, 18 December 2023 (UTC)
Well, he released this book, "Vax-Unvax - Let the Science Speak" in August this year. From the reviews and forwards, the book is... exactly what you expect it is.
I'm not sure if it's lying or stupidity - it could be either. With apologies for linking to the New York Post, in this interview RFK Jr insists that he has "never been anti-vaccine" but is instead advocating "safe vaccines and robust science". If he's not lying, in other words, it's more that he's someone who completely distrusts Big Pharma but doesn't know why, and conspires about scientific research that he can't understand. In America, the science side of Big Pharma is IMHO quite good; other parts, however, can occasionally be shady. It baffles me how one who wants to rail against Big Pharma isn't going after, say, legitimately awful crap (think, historically, Purdue Pharma,Wikipedia or currently, the notoriously awful pricing / insurance model here that makes American health care expensively meh and gives Europeans a reason to laugh at us). Instead, he actually (using falsehoods, of course) attacks well established vaccines like the f'n 50 year old vaccine for Hepatitis B. Sigh. BobJohnson (talk) 21:29, 18 December 2023 (UTC)
