Last week a Presidential candidate in Ecuador was assassinated at a campaign rally.
Fernando Villavicencio was running on an anti-corruption platform and promised to reign in the power of the nation’s ruling class elites.
And now Robert F. Kennedy Jr. went ballistic on the Biden regime after this Ecuadorian Presidential candidate was assassinated without explanation.
Ecuadorian Presidential candidate murdered at campaign event in Quito
Ecuadorian Presidential candidate Fernando Villavicencio was shot and killed at a political rally in Quito, Ecuador last week.
Incumbent Ecuadorian President Guillermo Lasso took no time to respond to what he called a “political crime, which has the character of terrorism… [and] an attempt to sabotage the election process.”
According to The Epoch Times, Lasso wrote on X that in the “memory” of Villavicencio, he wouldn’t let the crime go “unpunished.”
He said that “organized crime has gone very far, but all the weight of the law will fall on them.”
Villavicencio was running on a platform that denounces socialism and corruption in the government.
He was publicly critical of former President Rafael Corerea, who was a socialist.
He frequently called out special deals being made between the government of Ecuador and Communist Chinese companies.
Now, this candidate in the U.S. is drawing a parallel between the Ecuadorian assassination and his own campaign.
RFK says that violence in Ecuador shows that the political climate is destabilizing
The scion of the Kennedy political dynasty, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., is trying to use the assassination of Villavicencio to secure a Secret Service detail, after the Biden regime has routinely denied his requests for such security during his campaign.
In a press release, RFK’s campaign manager, former Cleveland Democrat Mayor and Ohio Congressman, Dennis Kucinich, said that “the killing [in Ecuador]… proves how volatile the political climate has become.”
Kucinich also cited a man that was killed by the FBI in Utah after making threats against President Biden.
“Yesterday the FBI confronted a man who had threatened President Biden, an incident that led to the man being shot dead by government agents,” Kucinich said in a statement.
“Mr. Kennedy has met all the criteria for protection,” the statement added. “The only conceivable reason he is being denied is because of a conscious decision by the White House to deny him security… [no matter] the consequences.”
This isn’t the first time that the Kennedy campaign has made public comments on this issue.
Kennedy campaign cites 67-page report from top security firm
Just a few weeks ago, Kennedy criticized the Biden regime for not offering security to his campaign.
In a post on social media, RFK wrote that “since the assassination of my father in 1968, candidates for President are provided Secret Service protection. But not me.”
He was responding to a decision by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who he says called his request “not warranted,” and declined to assign an agent to the campaign.
Kennedy said that the Biden DHS made this decision without considering any of the evidence he had brought.
“Our campaign’s request included a 67-page report from the world’s leading protection firm, detailing unique and well-established security and safety risks aside from commonplace death threat,” Kennedy said. He added Biden’s DHS took 88 days to decline the request—well beyond the standard two weeks.
