RFK Jr: Biden’s Censorship A Dire Threat To Democracy

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. sharply criticized Joe Biden over the weekend, claiming he poses a far greater threat to American democracy than President Donald Trump. During a CNN interview with Erin Burnett, Kennedy articulated his concerns about Biden’s unprecedented use of federal agencies to silence political dissent. 

Kennedy said, “Listen, I can make the argument that President Biden is a much worse threat to democracy, and the reason for that is President Biden is the first candidate in history, the first president in history that has used the federal agencies to censor political speech.”

Kennedy’s argument comes amid heightened political tension, with the 2024 presidential campaign now at full speed. He highlighted a disturbing trend: under Biden’s administration, there’s been a concerted effort to coerce major social media platforms into censoring viewpoints contrary to the administration’s narrative. 


This critical viewpoint gains additional weight from Kennedy’s legal battles, where he emerged victorious against the Biden administration’s attempts to restrict his speech on social media. The Supreme Court is currently considering a major case involving governmental overreach and the gross misuse of federal power to control public discourse. 

While Kennedy acknowledges what he describes as “challenges” posed by both Trump and Biden, his criticism of the current administration’s censorship practices draws a bright line between him and the Democratic establishment. The Biden campaign is becoming increasingly concerned about the risk that many 2020 Biden voters will defect to the Kennedy camp. 

As the nation moves closer to another pivotal election, the discourse around censorship, free speech, and the role of government in regulating these areas will undoubtedly intensify. Joe Biden’s weaponization of federal agencies to control the political narrative, as pointed out by Kennedy, challenges the foundational American principles of freedom and liberty. 

The “threat to democracy” theme is sure to be front and center in the Democratic strategy as November approaches. While the Biden campaign must find something other than the failures of the current administration to influence voters, it also faces an important second front with Kennedy and his attractiveness to liberals and many independents. Freedom-loving citizens can hope their fellow voters recognize the danger that another Biden term would present.
