Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (RFK Jr.) has dismissed accusations of being a “conspiracy theorist,” adding that he is yet to be proven wrong about his beliefs on certain things.
The Democratic presidential hopeful recently sat down with Reason TV for an interview with Reason magazine editor-in-chief Nick Gillespie. The candidate discussed a myriad of topics such as his campaign, his potential plans if elected as president and some of his controversial beliefs.
Gillespie accused RFK Jr. of “trafficking” conspiracy theories, which the candidate decried. He then accused the Reason editor-in-chief of basing his reports on newspapers, “many of which are just wrong.” RFK Jr. proceeded to challenge Gillespie to provide evidence to the contrary.
The Reason editor-in-chief then presented theories that had allegedly been “debunked,” such as the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) not always being detected in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines being unsafe.
“Show me where I got it wrong,” the candidate said. “Yes, I am willing to question public matters; I’ve been taught to do that my whole life. My father – [former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy Sr.] – said people in authority lie.”
He also emphasized to Gillespie in the same interview his opposition to COVID-19 mandates such as vaccine mandates and draconian lockdowns: “My inclination is not to mandate things, but give people a choice.”
Due to RFK Jr.’s vocal criticism of vaccines, including that of COVID-19, most of his interviews were suppressed on major social media platforms and mainstream media networks. (Related: ABC News censors Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s criticisms against covid “vaccines.”)
Back in June, YouTube took down the Democratic presidential candidate’s interview with Canadian clinical psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson. The Alphabet-owned video platform’s decision to take down the episode of “The Dr. Jordan B. Peterson Podcast” triggered accusations of Big Tech actively interfering in a U.S. presidential election.
“Now YouTube has taken upon itself to actively interfere with a presidential election campaign,” Peterson remarked. RFK Jr. also spoke out: “Do you really need Big Tech censors to decide what you should hear, or would you prefer to be treated as a competent adult who can listen to various viewpoints and come to [their] own conclusions?”
YouTube defended its decision to take down the interview between RFK Jr. and Peterson, alleging that the clip promotes “vaccine misinformation.”
“We removed a video from the Jordan Peterson channel for violating YouTube’s general vaccine misinformation policy, which prohibits content that alleges that vaccines cause chronic side effects, outside of rare side effects that are recognized by health authorities,” a spokesperson for the platform said in a statement.
RFK Jr. responded in a tweet: “It may be that YouTube has broken no laws in this blatant interference in the electoral process. In that case, change will come only through public pressure. That’s democracy in action.”
