A court hearing has been scheduled this week for a case being brought by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. against the powers of the internet that are censoring him.
He's contending for the Democrat nomination for president in 2024, and while the Democrat party machinery – apparently – still is behind Joe Biden, the Kennedy name certainly has the potential to disrupt the Deep State's best-laid plans for that vote.
The Hill explains that even though his name is associated with one of the most powerful Democrat families over the years, he's being targeted now.
The opinion piece said, "Not a day goes by that he is not vilified by a left-leaning news site. The vitriol these outlets direct at Kennedy is often far more inflammatory than what they launch against the 'hated' former President Donald Trump on a regular basis."
The commentary said it's because he's been considered for years a "charter member" of the "Democratic/liberal/progressive community" and he knows the "shadowy inner workings" of the Democrat machine better than most.
Which is why a hearing Wednesday before a federal magistrate judge on his request for a temporary restraining order barring Google from censoring his comments on YouTube takes on a huge significance.
His campaign explained he took legal action in the U.S. District Court Northern District of California against Google, LLC and its wholly owned subsidiary YouTube, LLC.
The hearing will be before Judge Nathanael Cousins in San Jose, California.
His campaign explained he is alleging Google worked with the federal government to develop and enforce "misinformation" policies to censor the government’s political opponents, including Kennedy, who is running against President Biden in the Democratic primary in the 2024 count.
"We are grateful that Judge Cousins recognized the importance of this matter and set an early hearing on Mr. Kennedy’s request," explained Scott Street, the attorney leading the litigation. "Google will not suffer any harm from being ordered not to censor Mr. Kennedy during his campaign. But society will suffer if the censorship continues."
Republicans and conservatives repeatedly have complained of censorship by Big Tech, and that topic is the subject of multiple congressional investigations even at this time.
Kennedy's case charges that the censorship schemes under Joe Biden have created a "degree of censorship of a major presidential candidate" that is unprecedented in America.
The Washington Examiner also said Kennedy is charging that videos featuring his comments were removed in violation of his First Amendment right.
"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 filing states. "Mr. Kennedy is not the only victim of this censorship campaign, which is unprecedented in American history. But he is a high-profile victim, especially since he is now challenging President Biden for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination."
The Democrat machine and online platforms accuse him, the son of Robert F. Kennedy, of delivering "misinformation" about the experimental COVID shots that many Americans were forced to take while proof of their side effects, sometimes fatal, remained sketchy.
A report in the Post-Millennial explained the COVID treatments weren't the only way he upset the Democrats power structure.
He also said he would, if elected, allow a national abortion ban.
He said, "I believe a decision to abort a child should be up to the woman during the first three months of life. Once a child is viable, outside the womb, I think then the state has an interest in protecting the child. I'm for medical freedom. Individuals are able to make their own choices."
His campaign immediately tried to walk back the suddenly pro-life position.
It released a statement that he "misunderstood" the question because of "noise" at the Iowa State Fair.
