Meta took down a Facebook page and Instagram account this week for Children’s Health Defense, an anti-vaccination organization spearheaded by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. for violating the platforms’ COVID-19 policies.
A Meta spokesperson told The Hill that the pages were removed for “repeatedly violating our policies,” specifically, COVID-19 and vaccine policies.
“The spokesperson specifically cited Meta’s COVID-19 and vaccine policies, which prohibit content that may encourage people infected with COVID-19 to attend in-person events, interfere with the administration of coronavirus vaccines and encourage people to not get vaccinated against the virus,” The Hill reported.
In a statement provided by Children’s Health Defense, Kennedy said that “Facebook is acting here as a surrogate for the Federal government’s crusade to silence all criticism of draconian government policies. Our constitutional framers recognized this peril of government censorship.
“We don’t need the First Amendment to protect popular or government approved speech. They incorporated the First Amendment specifically to protect free expression of dissenting opinions. They understood that a government that can silence its critics has license for every atrocity,” he added.
The Hill noted that one post on the Children’s Health Defense wrote that masks were ineffective in slowing the spread of COVID-19.
CHD’s website states that the organization is aimed at “exposing the fraud and corruption within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the pharmaceutical industry.”
In February 2021, Instagram took down Kennedy, Jr.’s Instagram account for posting “misinformation” about COVID-19 and the vaccine. A spokesperson for Facebook and Instagram told the Associated Press that “we removed this account for repeatedly sharing debunked claims about the coronavirus or vaccines.”
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
