Keith Olbermann Says RFK Jr. ‘Must Be Forced to Withdraw From the Ballot’

Anti-Trumpers sure are saying a lot of undemocratic things to save democracy itself from a second Donald Trump term. The Colorado Supreme Court already tried kicking him off the ballot, arguing that he was an insurrectionist and therefore ineligible to hold office. The Supreme Court killed that idea, but Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold remains butthurt:

Jena Griswold: “Anybody who stands up to Donald Trump or the MAGA right is barraged with threats, and a lot of us standing up just happen to be women so those threats are not only violent but sexist in nature. And make no mistake, this is part of the strategy.” pic.twitter.com/EdD95lMHaH

Calm down, lady.

Now another fearless defender of democracy, Keith Olbermann, is demanding that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. be stricken from the ballot because of his view on January 6. Kennedy told an interviewer, “I have not examined the evidence in detail, but reasonable people, including Trump opponents, tell me there is little evidence of a true insurrection. They observe that the protesters carried no weapons, had no plans or ability to seize the reins of government, and that Trump himself had urged them to protest ‘peacefully.”

Now being an insurrection denier is grounds for removing from the ballot.

This – in the @RobertKennedyJr statement on January 6 – is mealy-mouthed and disqualifying.

He must be forced to withdraw from the ballot.

The man is unprincipled and moronic and has the awareness of crushed brick. #RFKOut pic.twitter.com/PuEf9MmHwu

“He must be forced to withdraw from the ballot”
Sounds mighty fascist of you

You are just a pathetic individual that still believes there was an insurrection.

Democracy isn’t a thing for you huh?

You can’t just cancel someone’s ballot appearance.

It’s not your show on ESPN.

Or your show on Fox Sports.

Or your show on MSNBC.

Or your show on Current.

Speaking of self-awareness…..

So we should ban him from the ballot, you know, to save democracy.

Keith should be forced to withdraw from the internet.

Interesting take — Trump should be removed from the ballot for inciting an insurrection, and Kennedy should be removed from the ballot for not calling it an insurrection.
