Robert F Kennedy Jr has had another one his videos pulled by YouTube just weeks after the video-sharing site censored his interview with Jordan Peterson.
“YouTube just pulled another of my videos, with former NY Post political reporter Al Guart,” reported RFK Jr in a tweet.
Earlier this month, YouTube removed podcast host Jordan Peterson’s interview with RFK Jr for violating its “vaccine policies” after claims that chemicals in the water are “turning children transgender.”
“People made a big deal about Russia supposedly manipulating internet information to influence a Presidential election. Shouldn’t we be worried when giant tech corporations do the same?” Kennedy asked.
The Democrat candidate invited the public to listen to the interview on Spotify, where it remains live.
“When industry and government are so closely linked, there is little difference between “private” and “government” censorship,” continued Kennedy.
“Suppression of free speech is not suddenly OK when it is contracted out to the private corporations that control the public square.”
“The Twitter Files proved that numerous government agencies, acting through the FBI, told Twitter whom to censor. Twitter complied. Doubtless, Facebook, YouTube, and the rest received similar requests.”
“In the case of my interview with Al Guart, YouTube probably acted on its own initiative. It has internalized the political wishes of the establishment to the point where it knows what to censor without being told,” he added.
RFK Jr has become known for challenging mainstream narratives about coronavirus and vaccines, making him a big tech censorship target.
Last month, Kennedy told Breitbart News, “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.”
Earlier this month, Robert F Kennedy Jr revealed Facebooked-owned Instagram had banned him from creating new campaign accounts for 180 days.
RFK Jr slammed the Mark Zuckerberg-owned platform in a scathing tweet:
“To silence a major political candidate is profoundly undemocratic. Social media is the modern equivalent of the town square. How can democracy function if only some candidates have access to it?”
