During a recent interview, Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. took a hammer to censorship and argued that President Joe Biden needs to be investigated over the $10 million Burisama bribery allegation recently leveled against him.
That interview took place on Fox Business’ “Sunday Morning Futures” and was with Maria Bartiromo. During it, RFK Jr. spoke both about the bribery allegations and the weaponization of government against political enemies of the Establishment.
When asked about the issue, though he initially tried to avoid answering in the name of not inserting more vitriol and poison into politics, he changed his tune once the corruption aspect of it came up, saying, “The issues that are now coming up are worrying enough that we really need a real investigation of what happened.”
Continuing, he said that it is “really troubling” Burisma allegedly paid $10 million to Hunter and Joe Biden, saying, “I mean, these revelations …where you have Burisma, which is this notoriously corrupt company, that paid out apparently $10 million to Hunter and his dad, if that’s true, then it is really troubling. So I think … it needs to be investigated.”
Later in the interview, Kennedy spoke about the weaponization of America’s intelligence agencies against conservatives, particularly populist allies of former President Donald Trump, saying, “Yes. I mean, I think that that’s something that every American needs to worry about, that our federal agencies, which used to be above politics, have now become weaponized as political instruments. And that, again, is another really damaging trend for our democracy.”
Also during the interview, Kennedy ripped into the censorship regime with a vengeance, saying that it’s always the bad guys who are on the side of censorship, as it gives them the license to commit any atrocity they want.
In his words: “When people censor speech, when we look back in history, they’re never the good guys. Government abuses every power that it’s given, and if government suddenly has the capacity to censor its critics, it has a license for any atrocity.”
Continuing, he expressed a powerful conviction in the importance of free speech, saying that it should be a non-partisan issue and that the ability to speech freely is “the cornerstone” of America’s political system, the key to making our country work.
Beginning, he said, “[Free speech] should not be a partisan issue. This needs to be bipartisan. The Democratic Party has always fought very hard – my father, my uncle – throughout its history, the word liberal means freedom and applies specifically to freedom of speech.”
Continuing, he added, “We can’t have a democracy if we don’t have freedom of speech. It is the cornerstone of our democracy. That’s why the framers put it in the First Amendment. It is, as I said, it’s the sunlight, it’s the water, it’s the soil, and democracy. Without free speech, democracy will wither and die.”
