“Obama gave his direction to the FCC in back in early November and lo and behold, the FCC majority has put together President Obama’s plan for Internet regulation … Obama’s plan marks a monumental shift toward government control of the Internet. It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how the Internet works … Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet is an unlawful power grab.” — FCC commissioner Ajit Pai
“The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was, in the Commission’s view, honest, equitable and balanced.” — Wikipedia
“Think of the press as a great keyboard
on which the government can play.”
― Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda
Make no mistake: Barack Obama, not the FCC, is the one pulling the strings here. So-called “net neutrality,” as envisioned by Barry and the
Socialists … uh, Democrats, is no more than a thinly disguised attempt to abrogate free speech rights as guaranteed by the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
“…the movement behind net neutrality—from President Barack Obama to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and reportedly to New York Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand—is coming from the left for political reasons. As liberal dominance of the media has waned under the shadow of FOX News, conservative talk radio and websites such as the Drudge Report, some in the Democratic Party have been looking for creative ways to maintain, or regain, the “mainstream media’s” liberal clout. Net neutrality is one way to attain their goal of dominating the media.” — Forbes
Obama supporters, useful idiots who would gleefully support the stoning of infants and puppy dogs if they thought it would help Dear Leader in his campaign against capitalism, are all in favor of so-called “net neutrality,” which they see as a large thumb in the eye of the telecom giants instead of what it really is: a sucker kick to the cojones of American freedom.
