(RoyalPatriot.com )- After Robert F. Kennedy Jr. made a comparison to the Holocaust when speaking at a recent Washington, D.C. anti-vaccine-mandate protest, actress Cheryl Hines has publicly condemned her husband’s comments. Kennedy had made reference to Anne Frank at the rally, comparing the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany to the persecution of free Americans by federal and state governments.
Hines claimed that her husband’s reference to Frank was “reprehensible and insensitive.”
“The atrocities that millions endured during the Holocaust should never be compared to anyone or anything. His opinions are not a reflection of my own,” she said in a tweet on Tuesday morning.

Imagine being so terrified of the woke mob, and losing gigs in Hollywood, that you would publicly embarrass and criticize your own husband.
That’s where we are.
Kennedy, who is the son of former Attorney General Robert Kennedy and the nephew of former President John F. Kennedy, spoke out against COVID-19 mandates during a speech at the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday.
“Even in Hitler’s Germany, you could cross the Alps into Switzerland,” he said, noting that people could “hide in an attic like Anne Frank did.”
He described how he visited East Germany in 1962 with his father and met people who had climbed over the wall to escape. Today, though, he said mechanisms are being put in place to “make it so none of us can run, none of us can hide.”
It’s an important point, and one that might seem insensitive to some. However, at no point did Kennedy belittle or diminish what happened to Anne Frank and the victims of Nazi Germany.
Why is it nobody wants to talk about the fact that federal and state governments are routinely infringing on the rights of American citizens in the form of vaccine mandates?
Singer-songwriter Brad Skistimas called Hines out for her tweet, asking her what she thinks of an actual Holocaust survivor comparing what is happening today to the Holocaust.
What if a Holocaust survivor is comparing these times to the Holocaust? Just curious if it’s still reprehensible and insensitive? Genuinely asking. https://t.co/nwyG0xrdUx
