Robert F. Kennedy Jr. dropped the hammer on Democrats during a House censorship hearing today by schooling his own party on the First Amendment.
The Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government has been holding a hearing this morning on Capitol Hill.
The hearing was called to examine the federal government’s role in censoring Americans, the Missouri v. Biden case, and Big Tech working with government bureaucrats and agencies to shut down free speech.
During the censorship hearing, the Democrats beclowned themselves by trying to censor the key witness, Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Kennedy, a Democrat presidential candidate, fired back at his critics.
RFK Jr. has become a target of false smears from the Democrats and their allies in the media as he poses a serious threat to President Joe Biden in the party’s 2024 primary.
During the House hearing, Kennedy issued a warning about the threats to free speech from his own party, Big Tech, and the corporate media.
He also responded to Google-owned YouTube censoring his 2024 campaign announcement speech.
“I didn’t talk about vaccines in that speech,” he said.
“I didn’t talk about anything that was a verboten subject.
“I just was talking about my campaign things, the conversation that we ought to be having with each other as Americans.
“But I was shut down,” he noted.
“And that is why the First Amendment is important.
“Debate, congenial, respectful debate is the is the fertilizer.
“It’s the water, it’s the sunlight for our democracy.
“We need to be talking to each other.
“This is a letter, and many of you signed, many of my fellow Democrats.
“I’ve spent my life in this party,” he said in response to the Democrats’ efforts to silence him.
“I’ve devoted my life to the values of this party.
“These 102 people signed this.
“This itself is evidence of the problem that this hearing was convened to address.
“This is an attempt to censor a censorship hearing.
“The charges and by the way, censorship is antithetical to our party.
“It was appalling to my father, to my uncle, to FDR, to Harry Truman, to Thomas Jefferson, as the chairman referred to.
“It is the basis for democracy.
“It sets us apart from all of the previous forms of government.
“We need to be able to talk,” he noted.
“And the First Amendment was not written for easy speech.
“It was written for the speech that nobody likes you for.
“And I was censored not just by the Democratic administration.
“I was censored by the Trump administration.
“I was the first person censored by the as the chairman pointed out, by the Biden administration.”
