RFK. Jr. Vows To Sue YouTube Into Oblivion Over ‘Constant Censorship’

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has vowed to sue YouTube into oblivion over its ‘constant censorship’ of independent voices. The lawsuit filed Wednesday highlights violations of Kennedy’s First Amendment rights, as he contends his speeches and interviews were unconstitutionally censored on the platform.

As the presidential primary elections loom, Kennedy predicts this tactic of stifling discourse will ramp up in the coming months.

Highlighting this act of censorship includes RFK Jr’s. speech at Saint Anselm College, and his interviews with Jordan Peterson and Mike Tyson. The lawsuit points out the censorship of these videos are a blatant disregard for his constitutional rights.

Reclaimthenet.org reports: A focal point in Kennedy’s legal argument centers on an allegation of government overreach. Kennedy’s filing condemns the Biden administration for orchestrating what he views as a thorough attempt to silence dissenting voices. It clearly states, “this complaint concerns the freedom of speech and the extraordinary steps the United States government has taken under the leadership of Joe Biden to silence people it does not want Americans to hear.” Furthermore, it underscores that Kennedy is far from the only casualty in this censorship campaign, but his case stands out given his ongoing challenge to President Biden for the Democratic Party’s presidential ticket.

“Although YouTube is a private (non-governmental) party, it violated Mr. Kennedy’s First Amendment rights when it removed videos of his political speech, as alleged above, in several ways,” the complaint reads. “First, there is a sufficiently close nexus between YouTube and the federal government such that YouTube’s actions may be fairly treated as that of government itself. For example, although it cited its own COVID vaccine misinformation policies when censoring Mr. Kennedy, the policies rely entirely on government officials to decide what information gets censored. They say that YouTube does not allow people to say anything ‘that contradicts local health authorities’ (LHA) or the World Health Organization’s (WHO) medical information about COVID-19.’ These policies are subject to change, but only ‘in response to changes to global or local health authorities’ guidance on the virus.’ In other words, the government provides the rules that guide YouTube’s enforcement of the medical misinformation policies.”

Kennedy Jr has faced accusations of promoting vaccine “misinformation” throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. These allegations also motivated Meta to banish him from its Instagram platform for a significant period, with his vaccine-related comments in traditional news interviews often edited out.
