On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission reversed an Obama-Era decision on so-called 'Net Neutrality'. Granted, this was a very controversial issue which was complicated by the partisan propaganda put out by special interests on both sides. FCC Chairman Pai explained the issue quite succinctly shortly after the Thanksgiving Recess. As usual, the Corporate Media ignored his speech and spent the day whispering sexual innuendos against their enemies.
Even some of the FCC Commissioners who voted against the repeal admitted that Obama's Net-Neutrality Policy had been a failure. Jessica Rosenworcel, one of these commissioners, proposed to postpone the vote until State and Federal Agencies had finished investigating corruption in the process. That detail didn't make it the MSM either, despite her having said so at a press conference with the New York State Attorney-General and her speech posted on a press release on the FCC website. Commissioner Rosenworcel admitted that, since Obama instituted Net Neutrality in 2015, not one public hearing had been held, as promised. Over a million public comments were discovered to be fraudulent (over half of them had foreign e-mail accounts); and at least 50,000 known consumer complaints were missing.
Ending Net Neutrality isn't going to change things much for most of us. Basically, we're going back to Internet regulatory policies that were in effect up to 2014. But the Radical Left went into a collective outburst of Trump Derangement Syndrome. They not only gathered and rioted outside of FCC Headquarters, they phoned in fake bomb threats and made other threats of violence against FCC members. The Gateway Pundit documented several hours' worth of Leftist Twitter-feeds calling for Ajit Pai's death and expressing hopes of his imminent assassination.
These weren't simply isolated incidents or people venting their frustrations, either. On November 30th, Chairman Pai issued a Press Release condemning the death threats being received by Congressional supporters of the repeal. On the same day, authorities arrested a man in Syracuse, New York for threatening to assassinate Congressman John Katko and his entire family!
"If you do not support Net Neutrality, I will find you and your family and I will kill you all." the Anarchist said on the Congressman's voicemail, "Do you understand? I will literally find all of you and your progeny and wipe them of the face of the earth."
This is all very reminiscent of the threats of and actual violence against Federal officials during the unsuccessful attempt to repeal Obamacare. Chances are that none of these radicals understand Net Neutrality any more than they understand Obamacare. They operate in such a fog of blind rage that they will lash out in any direction. Senator Rand Paul, for example, was nearly shot playing baseball and had five ribs broken while mowing his lawn within the last six months alone.
It's time to get a grip on reality here. Personally, I never noticed the slightest effects on my life before or during Net Neutrality, nor am I or 99.9% of other Americans going to notice now that it's gone again. Internet Freedom---we're told by the Whacko Left---is now dead. And they've been telling us so over the Internet since their freedom to do so was supposedly revoked last Thursday.
