House Dems Move to Censor Robert F. Kennedy Jr at Big Tech Censorship Hearing
On Thursday morning, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. testified before the Congress on Big Tech censorship, and specifically, his views on the Covid “vaccines.”
In the course of his testimony, RFK Jr. had to constantly set the record straight about his views, arguing that he is not “anti-vaxx.” He even noted that he has been vaccinated for the recommended series, except for the Covid vaccine, as has his children.
But fellow Democrat Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, a House Rep. from Florida, moved to censor RFK Jr. speech due to controversial remarks he made last week about purported “ethnically targeted” viruses.
“Point of order pursuant to House Rule 11, clause two, which Mr. Kennedy is violative above. I move that we move into executive session because Mr. Kennedy has repeatedly made despicable, anti-Semitic and anti-Asian comments as recently as last week. Rule 11, clause two says whenever it is asserted by a member of the committee that the evidence or testimony at a hearing may tend to defame, degrade or incriminate any person, or it is asserted by a witness that the evidence or testimony that the witness would give at a hearing may tend to defame, degrade, or incriminate the witness. And it goes on. Mr. Kennedy among many other things has said, I know a lot now about bio weapons. We put out hundreds of millions of dollars in, into ethnically targeted microbes. The Chinese have done the same thing. In fact, Covid-19, there was an argument that it is ethnically targeted. Covid-19 attacks certain races disproportionately. The races that are most immune to Covid 19…”
Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) asked her is she was making a motion or a speech, and she clarified that she was seeking to move the testimony into an executive session.
Furthermore, Rep. Stacey Plaskett, a non-voting delegate from the Virgin Islands, claimed that RFK Jr. did not have First Amendment rights to share his views.

“My Republican colleagues… will rush to cover that they have Mr. Kennedy here because they want to protect his free speech. That they do not believe in American censorship. This is not the kind of free speech that I know of,” she said. “The free speech that is protected by the Constitution’s First Amendment, but free speech is not an absolute,” she said.
RFK Jr. had triggered Plaskett’s retort by stating that, “‘Misinformation’ is information that is true but inconvenient to the government.”
