NyPo is publishing excerpts from a secret diary kept by Robert F.Kennedy Jr. Yesterday, NyPo published RFK diary comments about his personal life. I did not post on those here at EPJ, because I only consider comments from a political leader about other politicians, and political/government operations, fair game. We need to know what these creeps are always up to and what they really think, as politicians..
Here are some of RFK's observations on other politicians as published by NyPo:
ON AL SHRAPTON
Kennedy recorded the thoughts in a bombshell diary from 2001, a copy of which was reviewed by The Post. The fat, red book, covered with bumper stickers shouting liberal slogans, bluntly reveals the scion’s true feelings about some of the most important political figures of our time, including family members such Cuomo, fellow Democrats and Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
RFK Jr. also kept notes for his journal during his month-long stint in a Puerto Rican prison that July. He, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson’s wife, Jacqueline, were charged with trespassing during protests on Vieques, the Puerto Rican island the US Navy used as a bombing range.
The Revs. Jackson and Sharpton “give me the creeps,” Kennedy writes in a July 5 entry.
“Al Sharpton has done more damage to the black cause than [segregationist Alabama Gov.] George Wallace. He has suffocated the decent black leaders in New York,” he says. “His transparent venal blackmail and extortion schemes taint all black leadership.”
He goes on to call Sharpton a “buffoon” who has never escaped the “stench” of his advocacy for Tawana Brawley, the black Dutchess County teen who fabricated a story about six white men raping her in 1987[...]
While locked up, Kennedy had a stream of prominent visitors, including then-Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Clinton, he writes, spoke of her recent visit to Sharpton in a Brooklyn cell block where he was alone with four television sets.
Clinton said Sharpton griped about being strip-searched — and also “went off on’’ Jackson.
ON JESSE JACKSON
He writes that Jesse Jackson has “a desperate and destructive addiction to publicity.”
He recalls that Jackson, at labor leader Cesar Chavez’s funeral, pushed “Cesar’s friends and family out of the way to make himself lead pall bearer.”
“His love affair with [Nation of Islam leader] Louis Farrakhan and his Jewish xenophobia are also unforgivable,” Kennedy adds.
“I feel dirty around him, and I feel like I’m being used. I feel like with Jesse, it’s all about Jesse.”
ON GEORGE W. BUSH
On Sept. 11, 2001, he writes: “Armageddon!!”
The next day, Kennedy writes that President George W. Bush is “an idiot and a puppet, and it’s painful watching him on TV.”
On Sept. 15, he calls Bush a simpleton who is “promising revenge in a crusade.”
“He will drop million-dollar bombs on 10 dollar houses in Kabul and bomb [them] back to the dirt age,” he says. “It’s agonizing having him as our leader, and I know the forces of darkness in his administration will turn this awful tragedy to their advantage.”
