YouTube deplatformed him five minutes into his announcement that he was a Democrat presidential candidate, Robert Kennedy, Jr. said Thursday, while defending himself from attacks by fellow Democrats during a House hearing.

A hearing, which was supposed to be about the weaponization of government through censorship, quickly detoured into vicious efforts to smear Kennedy and prevent him from testifying against censorship of viewpoints opposed by the Biden Administration.

Kennedy provided a personal account of how his candidacy announcement had been censored in real-time by YouTube:

“When I gave my speech my announcement speech in Boston two months ago. YouTube, I talked about all those issues, I focused on groceries; I focused on the fact that working class people can longer afford to live in this country. I talked about inflation, all the issues that deeply concerned you. And that you’ve devoted your career to alleviate those issues.

“Five minutes into my speech when I was talking about Paul Revere, YouTube de-platformed me. I didn’t talk about vaccines in that speech. I didn’t talk about anything that 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. And that is why the First Amendment is important.”

Kennedy said that a “new form of censorship” has been weaponized against him ever since he announced his plans to run against fellow Democrat, Pres. Joe Biden, to become his party’s 2024 presidential candidate…..
