RFK Jr. Denounces Government Censorship: “It is the Beginning of Totalitarianism”

Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Thursday’s hearing organized by the Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government was marred by contentious interruptions by House Democrats to censor Robert F. Kennedy Jr.  The hearing  was intended to “examine the federal government’s role in censoring Americans” in light of the ongoing Missouri v. Biden lawsuit alleging government censorship. Rep. Thomas Massey (R-KY) commented after the hearing, “The irony and cognitive dissonance from the other side of the aisle, it’s deafening. You could cut it with a knife. They are at the same time denying that censorship is occurring, but suggesting that there’s more material that needs to be censored.”  Kennedy said during the hearing, “If a government can censor its critics, that’s a license for every atrocity. It is the beginning of totalitarianism. Once you start censoring, you’re on your way to dystopia and totalitarianism.”
