In a post to his Facebook page this Friday, Christian evangelist Franklin Graham decried those trying to “censor” Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., saying, he’s “shaking things up—and I like it!”
Earlier this month, Kennedy testified at a House hearing on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, where he was attacked by lawmakers accusing him of spreading conspiracy theories.
“I’m subjected to this new form of censorship, which is called targeted propaganda, where people apply pejoratives like ‘anti-vax.’ I’ve never been anti-vaccine,” Kennedy said.
“But everybody in this room probably believes that I have been because that’s the prevailing narrative.”
In his Friday post. Graham said that Kennedy is “right” about the issues of censorship.
“He’s right about this issue. He said, ‘When people censor speech, when we look back in history, they’re never the good guys. Government abuses every power that it’s given, and if government suddenly has the capacity to censor its critics, it has a license for any atrocity,'” Graham wrote.
“Whether we’re Republican or Democrat, we should all be concerned about the government working with big tech and the media to control our lives. So what should we do? Let’s begin by getting on our knees and praying. There is no hope apart from God—pray for our nation and its leaders.”
