ER Editor: RFK Jr. has provoked some concern about his remarks over ethnic susceptibility to Covid, mentioning Chinese and Ashkenazi Jews in particular. And in a New York restaurant no less. Here’s the New York Post with a deliberately one-sided title, plus the short video of the presidential candidate speaking:
We don’t believe for a second that he didn’t know he would be recorded. And if he says there are studies to back up his claims, most probably there are.
Here’s the opening of the report, which takes a predictably outraged line —
Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. dished out wild COVID-19 conspiracy theories this week during a press event at an Upper East Side restaurant, claiming the bug was a genetically engineered bioweapon that may have been “ethnically targeted” to spare Ashkenazi Jews and Chinese people.
Kennedy floated the idea during a question-and-answer portion of raucous booze and fart-filled dinner at Tony’s Di Napoli on East 63d Street.
“COVID-19. There is an argument that it is ethnically targeted. COVID-19 attacks certain races disproportionately,” Kennedy said. “COVID-19 is targeted to attack Caucasians and black people. The people who are most immune are Ashkenazi Jews and Chinese.”
“We don’t know whether it was deliberately targeted or not but there are papers out there that show the racial or ethnic differential and impact,” Kennedy hedged.
In between bites of linguini and clam sauce, Kennedy, 69, warned of more dire biological weapons in the pipeline with a “50% infection fatality rate” that would make COVID-19 “look like a walk in the park.”
“We do know that the Chinese are spending hundreds of millions of dollars developing ethnic bioweapons and we are developing ethnic bioweapons,” he claimed. “They’re collecting Russian DNA. They’re collecting Chinese DNA so we can target people by race.”
We had republished Dr. Shankara Chetty‘s testimony to Reiner Fuellmich in early 2022, in which he noted that out of thousands of Covid patients, each wave seemed to affect a different ethnic group and in a different way. Chetty lives in South Africa. See —

Rumour among French intelligence surfaced in the documentary Hold Up by French filmmaker Pierre Barnerias from late 2020, that 3 bioengineered ‘viruses’ were circulating in particular EU countries alongside 3 real viruses, the three fakes affecting France / Germany, Italy / Spain, and the Scandinavian countries. If true, it suggests some sort of genetic targeting.
Such rumours have been circulated about the intelligence services, especially the CIA, collecting samples of local population DNA around the globe.
Why was RFK Jr. given this part of the script, in a way designed to get optimally reported?

The insinuation by @nypost and others that, as as result of my quoting a peer-reviewed paper on bio-weapons, I am somehow antisemitic, is a disgusting fabrication.

Media Twists RFK’s Remark at NY Press Event
Big pounce on candidate’s talk about COVID-19 susceptibility variation.
By JOHN LEAKE
The media is afire with screaming headlines and chatter about RFK, Jr. (allegedly) floating an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory about COVID-19 at a recent press event in New York. The presidential candidate’s allegedly outrageous remarks were captured in a video (apparently shot clandestinely) of him sitting at a dining table, talking to his companions about the frequently observed and documented fact that some ethnic groups appear to be more susceptible to severe COVID-19 illness than others.
So, what exactly did RFK, Jr. say?
We need to talk about bioweapons. …. We have spent hundreds of millions of dollars into ethnically targeted microbes. The Chinese have done the same thing. In fact, COVID-19, there is an argument that it is ethnically targeted. COVID-19 attacks certain races disproportionately. The races that are most immune to COVID-19 are—because of the genetic structure, the genetic differentials among different races, of the receptors, of the ACE-2 receptors—COVID-19 is targeted to attack caucasians and black people. The people who are most immune are Ashkenazi Jews and Chinese. We don’t know if it was deliberately targeted or not, but there are papers out there that show the racial and ethnic differential impact of that. We do know that the Chinese are spending hundreds of millions of dollars developing ethnic bioweapons, and we are developing ethnic bioweapons. That’s what all of those labs in the Ukraine are about. They are collecting Russian DNA so that we can target people by race.
What are we to make of this statement? Let’s start with his assertion that the United States and China are investing in developing ethnically target bioweapons. A quick search of the literature revealed several recent reports in which American and Chinese officials accuse each other of developing racially targeted bioweapons.
The Coming Threat of a Genetically Engineered ‘Ethnic Bioweapon, The National Review, April 10, 2023.
Pentagon Making Race-Specific Bioweapons to Target Citizens, China Says, Newsweek, May 11, 2023.
Could you make a genetically targeted weapon? The Guardian, 28 October 2004.
The Guardian piece cites a report issued by the Biotechnology, Weapons and Humanity II conference in which the British Medical Association expressed the following renewed concern:
The BMA, which dismissed the idea of genetic weapons in a 1999 report (Biotechnology, Weapons and Humanity I), has lifted its new concerns from the work of a German group called the Sunshine Project. It looked at how mutations in our genome called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) differ between specific ethnic groups and concluded: “Genome data in public databases revealed that hundreds, possibly thousands, of target sequences for ethnic specific weapons do exist. It appears that ethnic specific biological weapons may indeed become possible in the near future.”
What are we to make of RFK, Jr.’s second claim about “genetic differentials among different races, of the receptors, of the ACE-2 receptors”?
A quick Google search for Ethnic Susceptibility to COVID-19 ACE-2 Receptor yielded 504,000 results. At the top of the list was the 2022 paper SARS-CoV-2 Susceptibility and ACE2 Gene Variations Within Diverse Ethnic Backgrounds.
An augmented Google search for Ethnic Susceptibility to COVID-19 ACE-2 Ashkenazi Jews yielded 92,500 results. At the top of the results was a series of academic papers about variations of DNA polymorphisms in ACE2 and TMPRSS2 and how these variations seem to render some ethnic groups more or less susceptible to COVID-19, with Ashkenazi Jews apparently being less susceptible.
If RFK, Jr. can be fairly criticized for any of his remarks, it is that some of his statements could be interpreted as jumping to conclusions.
To me, what is most compelling and charming about RFK, Jr. is his immense curiosity about the world, and his love of conversing about it. Like all great conversationalists, he is frequently inclined to wander into domains of EMERGING KNOWLEDGE in which we are in the process of investigating new leads and making fresh discoveries, without having yet reached the point of complete understanding.
If his interlocutors are intelligent and sympathetic to the fact that he is acting in the capacity of an investigator following new leads, and NOT presuming to possess full knowledge of the subject, then he is safe with such expositions.
However, given that he may, at any given time, be in the presence of a hidden viper poised to strike him for every stumble and misstep, then he is well-advised to be more careful about what he speaks about.
As a presidential candidate (as distinct from an investigative author) it would probably suit him to get out of the weeds of bio-technical matters, and stay focused on major policy issues.
