Censorship Run Amok
Social Media Blocking Legitimate News
"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. 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."
~~ Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on facebook's deplatforming of Children's Health Defense, 8/18/22
Social media has run amok with censorship of legitimate alternative news websites. For alternative health articles and especially information related to COVID-19 and the associated vaccines, I have depended most heavily on the nonprofit Children's Health Defense (CHD) for the most reliable, verifiable information. Now CHD has been deplatformed by facebook and Instagram, where they had hundreds of thousands of followers of their good work.
CHD's founder, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., once a highly respected environmental lawyer, for years has been maligned and targeted by big Pharma and the many politicians in government who receive big funding from big Pharma. He has also been smeared by the major media, for whom well over 50% of their advertising dollars come from big Pharma. Explore this early article written by Kennedy explaining how he became involved in health activism after uncovering major deception at high levels.
Here are just a few of the many highly respected doctors and scientists who have been smeared and censored in the same vein as Kennedy:
- Dr. Michael Yeadon, a retired ex-Chief Scientist, and vice-president for the science division of Pfizer Pharmaceutical company in the UK.
- Dr. Martin Kulldorff, professor of medicine at Harvard University, a biostatistician, and epidemiologist with expertise in detecting and monitoring infectious disease outbreaks and vaccine safety evaluations.
- Dr. Peter McCullough, one of the most cited experts in his field, who has successfully treated over 2,000 COVID patients by using a protocol of early treatment.
- Dr. Sunetra Gupta, professor at Oxford University, an epidemiologist with expertise in immunology, vaccine development, and mathematical modeling of infectious diseases.
- Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, professor at Stanford University Medical School, a physician, epidemiologist, health economist, and public health policy expert focusing on infectious diseases and vulnerable populations.
- Many of the thousands of doctors and scientists who signed the Great Barrington Declaration.
One of the best emails we sent out on COVID written by neurosurgeon Russel Blaylock was also censored by some email providers. You can find the online version of Blaylock's important message on this webpage. Even if the information provided by these eminent doctors and scientists were wrong, is it right to censor them? Whatever happened to free speech and the value of debate?
As I value CHD so highly, I've copied below the essay they've written about their censorship with suggestions on what you can do to help. Thanks for caring, and please spread the word.

Announcement of facebook Deplatforming
August 18, 2022
On Wednesday, Aug. 17, without warning, Facebook informed Children’s Health Defense (CHD) that our page was deplatformed (unpublished). Simultaneously, our Instagram account was deplatformed (suspended). Each of these platforms had hundreds of thousands of followers. Collectively, more than half a million followers have been denied access to truthful information. We received the following notifications from both platforms:
Fighting Big Tech + Big Pharma
Despite not posting content on Facebook for the past 21 days due to an existing 30-day ban, and constantly self-censoring our content in an attempt to avoid continual shadow-banning and censorship, both pages were abruptly deplatformed. Removing CHD accounts is evidence of a clearly orchestrated attempt to stop the impact we have during a time of heightened criticism of our public health institutions.
Deplatforming by the tech giants came days after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) quietly walked back many of their previous COVID-19 policies that CHD has criticized since the beginning of the pandemic. Within hours of CHD deplatforming, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky shared her plans for overhauling how the agency works while admitting to a flawed response to the COVID-19 and pandemic missteps.
There’s no clear indication of why Facebook and Instagram chose to deplatform us at this time, but the timing dovetails with our ongoing censorship lawsuit against Facebook. CHD filed a lawsuit against Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram, in August, 2020. Recently, in its Ninth Circuit Court appeal filed on July 29, CHD provided the court with CDC-produced documents the agency shared with Facebook.
These documents, provided to Facebook on a regular basis, contained what the CDC considered misinformation. Titled “COVID Vaccine Misinformation: Hot Topics,” the CDC documents asked tech giants to “be on the lookout” (BOLO) for various topics they consider to be misinformation including: COVID-19 vaccine shedding, VAERS reports, spike protein data and more. The CHD case is currently pending in a Ninth Circuit decision.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. said:
"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 a 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."
Roger Teich, CHD legal counsel for the Meta lawsuit, added, “Censorship is not only unconstitutional, it’s un-American.”
