Rep. Buck Sounds ALARM: Left Censors RFK Because He Poses ‘Threat to Joe Biden’

July 24th, 2023 2:30 PM

Democrats are already scavenging for ways to use Big Tech to interfere with the 2024 presidential election, one lawmaker warned.

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) had some strong words against Big Tech’s censorship of free speech during a Friday interview on Fox News’s America’s Newsroom. Buck raised the alarm that Democrats are pushing to censor Robert F. Kennedy Jr. because of the challenge he poses to the Biden regime amid the 2024 nomination process. “Obviously, they are censoring him because he is a threat to Joe Biden,” Buck said of Kennedy’s appearance during a hearing before the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government on Thursday.

Buck didn’t mince his words in reaction to Democrat members of Congress and their reactions to the hearing. “There is a little irony that they’re having a hearing on censorship and trying to censor a witness,” Buck said. “Obviously, they are censoring the witness because he is a threat to Joe Biden. He’s polling somewhere in the 15 to 20% range. That scares Democrats that someone is going to pull votes away from Joe Biden and challenge him.”

Fox News Co-Host Dana Perino brought up the eclipsed but intended subject of the hearing – Big Tech censorship. “The fighting and argumentation between the Democrats and RJF Jr. yesterday sort of overshadowed the big picture about the hearing, which is this question about Big Tech and censorship,” Perino told Buck, before asking, “Do you think there are changes afoot when it comes to how the government is going to react and interact with these companies?”

Buck swiftly answered, “For four years, I spent a lot of time trying to push antitrust bills that would create competition so we wouldn't have this kind of censorship and the censorship is incredible towards conservative viewpoints,” Buck added. “The FTC and the Department of Justice are both—they both have lawsuits against Big Tech as do a number of attorney generals. Hopefully, we can break up these monopolies and make sure we get competition in the marketplace.”

One of the lawsuits brought forward is Biden v. Missouri, led by Andrew Bailey and Jeff Landry, the attorneys general of Missouri and Louisiana, who recently succeeded in obtaining a temporary injunction effectively restraining the Biden administration from ordering social media platforms to censor free speech. While the injunction was subsequently stayed by an appeals court, the case is still pending.
