The unhinged far left, including antifa members and “comedian” John Oliver, has launched several attacks on FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and his plan to reverse net neutrality regulation.
Over the past several weeks, hysterical alt-left people that purport to favor a “free and open internet” have picketed both outside the FCC and in different parts of Pai’s neighborhood. Of course, they favor leaving ISPs under heavy Title II utility regulation, instead of the current proposal to return them to lighter regulation under the Title I designation.
Not surprisingly, they would like to use continuation of Draconian government regulation to ban ideas and websites which they find objectionable. Apparently, in their mind-numbing world, they desire to “keep the internet vibrant, free and equal” by eliminating conservative sites like the Drudge Report, Breitbart, and InfoWars from their pipe dream of a public internet.
This campaign, called “Protect Our Internet,” is linked to Popular/Resistance.org, which in turn includes many followers of the often violent and provocative antifa movement. It’s no wonder, then, that they protest for an “open” internet that would be closed to all thoughts and information with which they disagree.
Meanwhile, the afore-mentioned John Oliver is running a bogus “grassroots activism” campaign against the FCC’S proposed changes that is even nuttier than “Protect Our Internet.” Its disgraceful comments are replete with fake names, racial attacks, and even death threats against Chairman Pai.
Dubbing his campaign “Go FCC Yourself,” Oliver – allegedly a comedian – uses bot accounts with phony comments from “Jesus Christ,” “Homer Simpson,” “Michael Jackson” and “Melania Trump.” Over 500 comments have been submitted by Ajit Pai, almost 200 from Donald Trump, and 8 from Obama (which, come to think of it, might actually be real). Several names have used some version of f-k.
Is there so much as a speck of decency, a modicum of intelligence, or a hint of sanity left – on the far, far left?
