Today’s vote by a bitterly divided Federal Communications Commission that the Internet should be regulated as a public utility is the culmination of a decade-long battle by the Left. Using money from George Soros and liberal foundations that totaled at least $196 million, radical activists finally succeeded in ramming through “net neutrality,” or the idea that all data should be transmitted equally over the Internet. The final push involved unprecedented political pressure exerted by the Obama White House on FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, head of an ostensibly independent regulatory body. “Net neutrality’s goal is to empower the federal government to ration and apportion Internet bandwidth as it sees fit, and to thereby control the Internet’s content,” says Phil Kerpen, an anti-net-neutrality activist from the group American Commitment. The courts have previously ruled the FCC’s efforts to impose “net neutrality” out of bounds, so the battle isn’t over. But for now, the FCC has granted itself enormous power to micromanage the largely unrestrained Internet.
As we’ve been saying all week… This fight is FAR from over. BUT, we ALL need to do our part to fight this outrageous, fascist, power grab by the Dem-controlled FCC. To that end.. If you’ve not already done so.. PLEASE PLEASE call or email your member of Congress and both of your U.S. Senators and let them know you want them to do whatever they can to stop this power grab by the FCC, and that you’re against this so-called “net neutrality” nonsense!
