A new article by myself and Matt Taibbi has just dropped on Racket, along with a short tweet thread
I don’t agree with much of what he says, but he’s got balls! His was the most passionate, courageous testimony I’ve ever seen delivered on the House floor. Will it inspire a revolt agains the Censorship Industrial Complex or is it the last gasp of a democracy that’s been slowly dying ever since his uncle was assassinated? Only time will tell.
Thank you Andrew. Keep up the great work.
Thank you for continuing to fight for free speech. I don't know much about RFK, to be totally honest, but I do know that a genuine democracy requires that anyone running for public office be given the opportunity to speak their piece so the people can make their own fully informed decisions.
I also wanted to mention that I discovered this afternoon that I had been automatically unsubscribed from your Substack without my knowledge (I was also unsubscribed from about 15 other blogs). I've obviously re-subscribed, but I wanted you to be aware that happened.
I've never seen a better speech in the halls of Congress than this one. RFK Jr. should not only stop being attacked by the Dem establishment but he should be the new face of it. I've never been more proud of a Democrat in recent times than I am with this speech. He will bring this country together and that scares the hell out of the establishment because that is their whole playbook to keep us divided and fighting each other while they get richer and more powerful. We need to come together and lift ourselves out of this mess we're in and RFK Jr. is just the person to lead that charge.
Whilst this in an obvious example of things gone wrong in the states, don’t think this shit is limited to there. Even my own motherland, the formally shat on happy go lucky country of Ireland is getting in on it.
Andrew, great as always. Thanks man....
Thank you, Andrew. Yes, we are witnessing things never before imagined in this country of ours. There is a deep evil afoot.
Thanks for sharing that Kennedy video. Another example of 'democracy' in the trenches.
