Aaron Rodgers has not been shy about speaking up about taboo issues. In the recent past, the repeat MVP winner has denounced mandates against bodily autonomy, praised certain pharmaceutical products, embraced non-Western approaches to reflection by ingesting substances like ayahuasca, and even spoken out against the buried Epstein list.
In the big scheme of things, then, Rodgers’ latest foray into politics is hardly explosive, but it will not doubt be met with swift reprobation from corporate outlets dutifully toeing the globalist line.
After Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. announced his candidacy for the Democrat nomination for president, the son of the slain former Attorney General and presidential candidate himself, Bobby Kennedy, he followed up with a tweet saying:
“Give me a sword. I need an army, and it can’t be just the Party. I need Democrats, Republicans, and Independents,” Kennedy first wrote.
“I won’t pretend to agree with you on every position. But I would make America a safe place to debate your positions and I will give you an ear and open mind.”
Rodgers, with a single emoji, set off a firestorm of leftist hate for daring to challenge the great Joe Biden and the Democrat machine. Rodgers quote-tweeted Kennedy with a sword.

Earlier this week, Kennedy boldly declared his campaign had begun in earnest with a fiery speech, seen in part below.
“This is what happens when you censor somebody for 18 years. I got a lot to talk about. They shouldn’t have shut me up for that long because now I’m really going to let loose on them for the next 18 months. They’re going to hear a lot from me!”

For what it’s worth, Kennedy is hardly a leftist Democrat. In fact, for many centrists and anti-establishmentarians, he presents an interesting choice should he, in the rare event, succeed in securing his chosen party’s nomination.
Kim Iversen is one of the more respected journalists in the largely discredited field. She unceremoniously left The Hill for daring to challenge certain narratives that prevailed during 2020 and beyond. She wrote upon hearing the news Kennedy was running that her only criticism so far was that he had chosen to be represented by Democrats.
God, I pray Robert F Kennedy Jr. wins the Presidency and brings the country back to a place of peace and sanity. He's hands down the best candidate I've seen in my lifetime.
I will remain critical of him and his policies where I see criticism is needed, but so far…

“God, I pray Robert F Kennedy Jr. wins the Presidency and brings the country back to a place of peace and sanity. He’s hands down the best candidate I’ve seen in my lifetime,” Iversen began. “I will remain critical of him and his policies where I see criticism is needed, but so far…my only current criticism is he insists on running as a Democrat.”
Kennedy’s campaign will hopefully pick up momentum in the coming months. Like Donald Trump, he’s an outsider (in today’s political configuration) who hates the way things work and seems to genuinely care about individual freedom. He has a considerable uphill battle considering the state media outlets have painted him as a raging anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist, but in an honest world, his message would resonate with people certainly in the Democrat field but beyond as well.
As for Rodgers, his support for Kennedy seems par for the course. And he has his own future to figure out as well. With both he and the Green Bay Packers both seemingly decided against another season together, and the groundwork laid for him to head to New York to suit up for the Jets, both men have an interesting summer and fall lined up.
