Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the son of murdered Sen. Robert F. Kennedy (D-NY) and nephew of murdered President John F. Kennedy, has launched a campaign seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for president. Two of the factors motivating his entry into the race are his disgust with the medical tyranny unleashed during the covid pandemic and the rampant censorship imposed on those who questioned this tyranny.
As many presidential candidates do, he agreed to be interviewed by ABC News. He was later stunned by the omission of his remarks on these two topics in the taped segment aired by ABC. Anchor Linsey Davis justified the censorship of this candidate’s views on the grounds that “his opinions on these issues are false. Officials at the CDC have declared that the vaccines developed to combat the disease are safe and effective. As journalists we couldn’t ethically air Mr. Kennedy’s opinions that they are not.”
Disappointed that so-called journalists at ABC News saw fit to censor his views, RFK, Jr. observed that “there is no time in history where the people who were censoring speech were the good guys. During the pandemic many of my social media posts questioning the wisdom of the lockdowns were labeled misinformation and taken down. This kind of behavior is a direct assault on our democracy. In the Bill of Rights, America’s Founders put the right to free expression in the First Amendment because all the other rights depended on it—because the government that has the power to silence its critics has license for any kind of atrocity.”
Apprised of RFK’s objections to her censorship, Davis laughed. “His reaction shows how out of step he is with the modern progressive Democratic Party’s way of thinking. Given the grievous danger disunity poses in today’s politics it is imperative that those who cherish our democracy stand against unwarranted dissent against our values and actions to protect those values. We here at ABC News will do whatever we have to to ensure that Mr. Kennedy’s campaign goes nowhere.”
In related news, as the publication of studies on the effects of the pandemic lockdowns continues to prove that critics like RFK were right about how damaging these policies were, Dr. Anthony Fauci is now saying that “I never closed down any school or business. I had no power to do so. All I did was suggest that these places could accelerate the spread of covid. It was others who acted on these suggestions that bear the responsibility for the lives ruined, suicides, and other negative outcomes that post-pandemic research is now discovering.”
Meanwhile, the demonstration of the covid vaccines’ failure to prevent infection or transmission of the disease has inspired the FDA to say that “vaccines no longer require a demonstration of the prevention of infection or transmission of the virus to be called a vaccine. All that is required is for the appropriate government agency to declare whatever substance it wishes to be called a vaccine.”
