Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lit up Democrats on Thursday during his testimony delivered in front of the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, eviscerating a litany of falsehoods that had been foisted upon him through “defamations and malignancies” that have propagated online censorship.
“Every statement that you just made about me is inaccurate,” he told the committee, after being accused of advocating “anti-vax” policies.
He continued, “I have never advised Black Americans not to receive vaccines. At one point you say I’m anti-vax, and that’s a bad thing. The other…you point out all my children are vaccinated….I have NEVER been anti-vax. I have never told the public ‘avoid vaccination.’”
He noted that he believed that “vaccines should be tested with the SAME rigor as other medicines and medication.”
Kennedy resoundingly defined the term “malinformation” in response to a question from the panel, stating, “The term ‘malinformation’ was coined to describe information that Facebook and Twitter and the other social media sites understood was true, but that the White House and other federal agencies wanted censored anyway for political reasons, because it challenged official orthodoxies.”
During Thursday’s hearing, Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), attempted to censor Kennedy at the censorship hearing, drawing severe rebuke from the Democrat presidential candidate.
Kennedy stated that they were attempting to “censor a censorship hearing” and pointed out that the Democrats’ behavior was “itself evidence of the problem that this hearing was convened to address.”
He explained, “If the views that you and others have applied to me… were actually true, I can see why I shouldn’t be able to testify here today. Those are NOT true. These are defamations and malignancies that are used to censor me to prevent people from listening to the ACTUAL things that I’m saying. And I think, ranking member, that we should have a real conversation rather than an exchange of ad hominin attacks.”
