Bobby Kennedy, Jr. is going to give fits to left-wing democrats who have been colluding with Silicon Valley to crush Free Speech and the First Amendment. Kennedy has tasted up-close censorship and cancelship and is a champion for the First Amendment rights of all Americans. He will be vilified, marginalized and bullied in coming months.⁃ TN Editor

“There is no time in history where the people who were censoring speech were the good guys,” Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. told Breitbart News Sunday host Joel Pollak.

Pollak asked Kennedy about his championing of free speech over big tech censorship. The bestselling author, environmental lawyer, and child health advocate has experienced censorship firsthand. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many of Kennedy’s social media posts questioning the wisdom of the lockdowns were labeled “misinformation.”

In his presidential announcement speech last week, the candidate said, “I’m in a lawsuit involving Amazon for censoring one of my books. They were censoring people who criticized the lockdowns while they were raking in money from the lockdowns.”

“I’m wondering if you can make a pitch to our audience about a common cause that you, running as a Democrat, may have with many conservatives who feel that they’ve been canceled or otherwise censored or marginalized in public discourse,” Pollak asked.

“It’s more than a personal aggrievement. It’s really just a direct assault on our democracy,” Kennedy stated.

Kennedy explained that in crafting 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.”

“They also understood just theoretically that the whole basis for democracy was the free flow of information,” he said, adding that democracy’s advantage over “tyrannical and monarchical” systems of government is that “through the free flow of information, the best policies can triumph in the marketplace of ideas.”

“We’re now in this situation where without free speech, democracy just withers and dies. Free speech is the fertilizer; it’s the sunlight; it’s the water for democracy,” he continued. “There is no time in history where the people who were censoring speech were the good guys. They’re always the bad guys because, of course, that is the first and last step of totalitarianism: silencing critics.”

Pollak noted that Breitbart News founder Andrew Breitbart “used to say we always need more voices, not fewer voices. The answer to speech you don’t agree with is more speech, not less speech.”

Kennedy argued that “misinformation” and even “lies” are still Constitutionally protected speech. “There are certain kinds of speech that are not protected. But, you know, those things are.”

“What we really ought to be looking at is why? What is the cause of this blizzard and tsunami of misinformation that everybody is worried about?” Kennedy asked. “And if you look at why this is happening, it’s clear that it’s happening because people don’t trust the government anymore, and they don’t trust it because the government lies, and the media lies.”

“Twenty-two percent of Americans now trust the government, and about 22 percent trust media. That’s the lowest level in our history,” he said. “And the reason they don’t—there’s a very good reason—is that the government and the media, the mainstream media, the corporate-owned media, they are now lying just as a matter of course. And because of that, people are looking for other sources of information. And when those other sources challenge government orthodoxies, the government’s response is to censor them or to label them as misinformation and say that they’re dangerous.”

Well, If Kennedy really believes this,. then why backhandedly censor speech:

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Wants a Law to Punish Global Warming Skeptics

He’s just another distraction – he still thinks Covid19 exists, when there are over 213 FOI requests from around the world that say the CV has never been isolated. I don’t trust him one bit.

I generally like Kennedy, but this lie runs deep in him, and you are correct to call him out on his hypocrisy.

“Kennedy has tasted up-close censorship and cancelship and is a champion for the First Amendment rights of all Americans”. Mr. Wood, are you sure about that? Have you not seen the video where RFK talks about prosecuting climate change deniers and equates them as war crimminals and ‘contemptible human beings’?

Isn’t that the same guy who wants to charge climate change “deniers” with war crimes?


Good clip of 2014. He’s changed his mind. Maybe he was gaslighted like the rest of them and has only recently awakened since 2019. That happens. Someone who has access to him should ask him WHY he’s changed his mind since the bioweapon was released. I’d like to hear that.

Incidentally, “censoring” “free speech” is sometimes necessary to keep people from being poisoned by the grand, cancerous ideas of communism.

Most people don’t have the discernment to understand its vile potentials. Particularly when they are young and stupid.


What is different about the approach than what is happening now from the other direction? NOTHING. Free speech is FREE not qualified, as your statement would suggest. We have to put up with one another. That’s America. Or it was.


Kennedy is all for Climate Change. Climate Change is part of the United Nations’ Agenda 21. Under the premise of Climate Change they want to bring in 15 minute #SmartPrisons, stop Freedom of Movement – abolish travel by 2050 and tax countries. The UN stated that if a country’s population is “too high” then their food rations should be cut down. Think-tanks published their findings showing Climate Change are more likely to be accepted by the people than a (fake) alien invasion. In 1979 a UN treaty was signed prohibiting all countries to modify the weather for the purpose of… Read more »

His book on “vaccines” was a worthwhile read. But his positions on human-caused global warming /climate change are mistaken.

First, let’s see if he can stay alive long enough to run. HIs family has been a target of the ‘bad guys’ for decades. The globalists love murdering–bioweapon–nuf said. Moreover, Kennedy’s political party has become the enforcer of everything that is undesirable in life, a sick limb of the ‘lockstep’ (“Our ships must sail in the same direction” Godfather/UN/WEF, et al) worldwide criminal cartel lead by elitists who have a scarcity mentality and HATE humanity enough to murder us all to benefit their sick aims because they hate themselves. Their disregard for the rule of law, as well as interpreting… Read more »

I don’t think Kennedy is talking about what the Democrats have done, which is use any issue or any person that wants to be empowered to empower themselves and their party, but calls for self-responsibility in action, which is necessary in a nation where people are free. With freedom comes power that requires responsibility. The two present parties may talk about this (in some fashion), but what they mean is empowerment of their interests at the expense of others. Just look at men in women’s sports being claimed as freedom and human rights or what RFKjr is talking about, here,… Read more »


Please provide a link that is not Youtube–the people who hate you.


It is Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. talking. Do you think that it is faked? There is a line between encouraging better use practices and demanding them through governmental force. What Biden is doing is fascism. Whether Kennedy would be better, I don’t know. He might want to act in the same way. The Democrats have followed ‘”social engineering” “nudge” in road design rather than better engineering to naturally let better practices occur. That is, they put up rudimentary speedbumps rather than design the roads better and truly for all. And it is a failure. We have to get them and… Read more »


Well from all the comments I can clearly see here that your Hope is in man and not in God. If JFKJr has done good thing it’s because God has use him to bestow some goodness on us. Then I will keep my hope in God and pray that he will keep blessing His people and pray for Mr. JFKJr to change his views on climate change. And pray specially for his salvation and that of yours. Regardless of what men do or not do, we are in the hands of God . He is sovereign over all things.
