Democratic presidential hopeful Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has made a bold claim that both China and the United States are secretly developing “ethnic bio-weapons” that can specifically target people based on their racial background. However, the Pentagon has denied this allegation.
Kennedy, who is known for his controversial views, has previously been vocal against state laws mandating vaccinations and has opposed the idea of mandatory COVID vaccinations. He clarifies that he is not against vaccines themselves, but rather the idea of forcing people to take them.
During Kennedy’s recent appearance on “The Record With Greta Van Susteren,” he took his theories to a new level by suggesting that China and the U.S. are already working on bio-weapons that can target specific ethnicities.

Van Susteren brought up the potential danger of a virus, possibly created through gain-of-function research, being used as a weapon of mass destruction.
“I see that as the next big fight… those viruses don’t see any borders,” she expressed her concern, adding, “That’s what I worry about more than the big hardware.”
“Yes, you’re exactly right,” Kennedy agreed. “And we know that the Chinese are developing ethnic bio-weapons — bio-weapons that are designed to attack people of certain racial types, and we’re doing the same thing.”
Kennedy did not provide much context to support his claim, but RollingStone speculated that it may be loosely based on recent comments made by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and China’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin.
“We’re also concerned by reports of the spread of mass DNA collection to Tibet as an additional form of control and surveillance over the Tibetan population,” Blinken said in early May.
“These claims do not hold water and mean nothing except manufacturing sensational news items,” Wang Wenbin said in response during a news conference held the following day. “The US widely collects and uses genomic information. According to The Wall Street Journal, the Pentagon has formulated R&D plans for hitting opponents with genetically engineered weapons. Those involved disclosed that the genomic data of Asian Chinese, European Aryans and Middle Eastern Arabs are all being collected by the US military… It’s pretty clear who exactly is using genomic information for secret purposes.”
The Pentagon responded to the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman at the time, stating that the United States “is not developing bioweapons and strongly refutes the assertion that we are.”
