RFK Jr.’s rise and growing influence is unsettling to the political Establishment, and they are responding by attempting to silence him. While I may view RFK Jr. as a bit eccentric, he has managed to resonate with a portion of Democrats who feel that President Joe Biden is failing on multiple fronts.
His ability to captivate audiences is undoubtedly aided by his family name and political lineage. As the son and nephew of renowned American politicians, RFK Jr. has a platform that reaches millions, and he has effectively utilized it. Remarkably, he currently holds around 20% support in the Democratic presidential polls, an impressive feat considering he is challenging the incumbent.
However, the Establishment is not pleased with his success among a particular segment of the population. Consequently, they are resorting to tactics to stifle his voice. The accusation that the CIA may have been involved in the assassinations of JFK or RFK Jr., while I personally do not subscribe to it, is within the bounds of discussion. This interview does not incite violence or insurrection; it merely expresses RFK Jr.’s beliefs.
Unfortunately, YouTube and the broader Establishment do not want his message to be heard. We are currently witnessing a disturbing trend in the 2020s, where a censorship-industrial complex is determined to control what people see, hear, and think. This situation reflects a form of totalitarianism, specifically the fascist variant, where corporate and government elements collaborate to exert control over society.
The difference between fascism and communism lies not in ideology but in methodology. Both are fundamentally socialist but diverge in their approach. Fascism involves the merging of the corporate and political classes, with nominal private sector control over the means of production. Meanwhile, communism explicitly nationalizes the means of production. In practice, both systems result in government control of the economy, but fascism acknowledges the productivity of profit-motivated businesses while still subjecting them to political direction.
YouTube, Google, Facebook, and previously Twitter are, in practical terms, extensions of the government. They enjoy the freedom to operate and make decisions as they please, as long as they align with the government’s interests when necessary. This case serves as a prime example of such collaboration. Even if YouTube did not receive a direct request to silence RFK Jr., they are certainly catering to the desires of the Democratic Party, which seeks to muzzle an anti-establishment figure.
It is evident that the Democrats do not want an unpredictable loose cannon like RFK Jr. in the White House. If President Biden were to step aside or become incapacitated, he would likely be replaced by individuals like Kamala Harris or Gavin Newsom, depending on the prevailing faction within the party. RFK Jr. would not be their chosen candidate.
The Democratic Party has demonstrated remarkable efficiency in controlling its machinery, ensuring that their preferred candidate prevails. Republicans, on the other hand, have struggled with this strategy, as evidenced by the 2016 election. Furthermore, the Democrats now possess an array of tools that extend beyond party machinery control—they effectively dominate the means of communication.
YouTube, as a subsidiary of Alphabet (Google), is simply doing the bidding of the Establishment or, more accurately, their own class interests, given their membership in the Establishment.
