2024 Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has filed a lawsuit against YouTube and its parent company Google claiming the tech giants carried out a “censorship campaign” against him.
“This complaint concerns the freedom of speech and the extraordinary steps the United States government has taken under the leadership of Joe Biden to silence people it does not want Americans to hear,” the suit reads.
“This censorship campaign prevents Mr. Kennedy’s message from reaching millions of voters. It also makes it harder for groups that are supporting his campaign to amplify his message through public sources,” the suit reads.
From Epoch Times:
In the 27-page lawsuit filed on Aug. 2, Mr. Kennedy alleged that YouTube violated his First Amendment rights by removing videos of his speech at Saint Anselm College and interviews with clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson and conservative podcast host Joe Rogan.
The lawsuit, filed in the Northern District of California, underlines that Mr. Kennedy was not the only victim of the censorship campaign but also that he was “a high-profile victim” challenging President Joe Biden for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.
Mr. Kennedy claimed that YouTube used its “medical misinformation” policies to justify removing the videos, which he alleged was done in partnership with federal government officials, including “the Biden White House,” to silence critics.
