Presidential Candidate Alleges Google Worked with Government to Silence Dissent

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a candidate for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, has filed a lawsuit against Google and its subsidiary YouTube, alleging that the companies have censored his political speech in violation of his First Amendment rights.

Kennedy alleges that Google worked with the federal government to develop and enforce “misinformation” policies that have been used to censor his videos and other content. He claims that these policies are vague and overbroad, and that they have been used to censor legitimate political speech.

In one instance, Google removed a video of a speech Kennedy gave at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. The speech was about the corrupt merger of corporate and state power, an issue Kennedy has fought about for decades. Google claimed that the video violated its “misinformation” policy, but Kennedy argues that the speech was protected by the First Amendment.

Kennedy is seeking an injunction to prohibit Google from censoring his political speech. He is also seeking damages for the harm that has been caused to his campaign.

This case is a significant test of the First Amendment rights of political candidates. It is also a reminder of the dangers of corporate censorship. Google is one of the most powerful companies in the world, and it has the ability to silence dissenting voices. This case is a reminder that we must protect our First Amendment rights from the power of big tech.
