Alerts: Warning—‘Net Neutrality’ means Internet Censorship
Patriot Alerts Update
FCC Commissioner: Feds May Come for Drudge
That’s the headline from CNS News. The cat is finally out of the bag. Finally… the conservative media is just starting to understand what you’ve known for far too long and is sounding the alarm that Barack Obama’s so-called Net Neutrality regulations are really part of a broader a plot to take over the Internet… target politically unacceptable websites… and quash your 1st Amendment rights.
As a matter of fact, Federal Communications Commissioner Ajit Pai went so far as to say: “It is conceivable to me to see the government saying, ‘We think the Drudge Report is having a disproportionate effect on our political discourse… and we want to start tamping down on websites like that.'”
Make no mistake… If the Obama Regime has its way, Drudge is on the chopping block… Fox News is on the chopping block… your 1st Amendment rights are on the chopping block…
And there’s only one way to stop this government Internet takeover now that Barack Obama’s FCC has essentially decreed it — by dictatorial fiat — to be the law of the land. The Republican-controlled Congress must bring Representative Marsha Blackburn’s Internet Freedom Act, H.R. 1212, to the floor of the House and Senate and pass it BEFORE THE OBAMA-FCC ORDER GOES INTO EFFECT ON JUNE 12.
“Among… A Disturbing Number Of Regulators Here In Washington… Online Speech Is A Dangerous Brave New World…” – FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai
Yes, as far as Barack Obama and radial leftists are concerned, your 1st Amendment rights are a very dangerous thing but, for the longest time, no one in Washington DARED to speak what was such an obvious truth.
But now, thanks to patriotic Americans like you who have been calling and faxing Washington, that dynamic has changed and pundits and lawmakers are finally starting to talk about the real agenda behind so-called Net Neutrality regulations:
Pai went on to say: “I could easily see this migrating over to the direction of content… What you’re seeing now is an impulse not just to regulate the roads over which traffic goes, but the traffic itself.”
Pai adds: “Is it unthinkable that some government agency would say the marketplace of ideas is too fraught with dissonance? That everything from the Drudge Report to Fox News… is playing unfairly in the online political speech sandbox?”
Norvell Rose with WesternJournalism.com writes: “In what sounds like an Internet-related version of the so-called ‘Fairness Doctrine,’ a new plan to control content on the Internet may be in the formative stages among over-zealous federal regulators.”
Seton Motley, the president of Less Government, says so-called Net Neutrality is “an assault on the industry to effect an ideological outcome” so “the government will be able to pick winners and losers.”
Washington Times columnist and syndicated radio talk show host Tammy Bruce goes a step further and claims: “The Internet must be killed because it dares to keep turning on the light in a room the left prefers remain dark.”
And Rep Marsha Blackburn recently said that the “vote by the FCC to regulate the Internet… is further proof that the Obama administration will stop at nothing in their efforts to control the Internet.”
The cat is out of the bag… the truth is out… but our work is far from done. Because of your efforts politicians are finally starting to talk to talk, but it’s up to us to make them walk the walk.
So What Is The Problem With Our Republican Leaders? What Is The Delay? Here’s A Dirty Little Washington Secret.
One would think that opposing overt and draconian threats to the 1st Amendment and your God-given liberties would be a no-brainer, but what is so obvious to decent folks like you is, all too often, not so apparent to the feckless and corrupt politicos — on both sides of the aisle — in Washington.
So what’s the problem? …
Here’s another truism… a truism that few in Washington dare to put into words.
Just as it is happening with the implementation of ObamaCare, the implementation of the Obama-FCC Net Neutrality order will put politicians and regulators in the federal government in the position of picking winners and losers.
And that is what this is about. The government granting itself more power over the people and the free-market.
Truth be told, some politicians in Washington weren’t even thinking about your 1st Amendment rights… it never crossed their puny little minds.
But now that’s all changed… your efforts are starting to bear fruit. People in Washington are finally speaking the truth because the most powerful and potent force in Washington is not on K Street… it is not in corporate boardrooms … the most powerful and potent force in Washington IS YOU… when the special interests speak, they listen but when you bother to speak, THEY LISTEN TO YOU.
And the only question that you need to ask yourself now is: Are you going to sit on the sidelines and complain over the fact that politicians in Washington don’t reflexively do the right thing, or are you going to wield your 1st Amendment rights and MAKE our elected officials do the right thing?
The choice is yours, but if you choose the latter, then the time to act is now because Barack Obama’s Internet Takeover will go into effect in a little more than 30 days.
