While some of the more mainstream conservative media representations of the FCC’s recent vote to end Net Neutrality will consider the move a win, I’m here to tell you that it is not.
Worse yet, these Deep State shills are attempting to convince you that Net Neutrality is a bad thing by habitually attaching the phrase “Obama Era” to the front end of it. Of course, there wasn’t much to rave about once Barack Obama’s destruction of America could be fully assessed, but the lens through which we examined Net Neutrality has.
For those unaware of the concept, Net Neutrality keeps the internet “free” from financially-induced censorship, and will simply hand control of our entire in-home media universe to giant corporations. With Net Neutrality in place, companies such as the increasingly-evil Comcast and AT&T cannot decide what websites you would like to visit, nor can they charge you extra money for viewing them.
If today’s FCC Net Neutrality repeal moves past the communications commission itself, all that will change, and companies such as Time Warner will be in a unique position to take more money from you anytime you get news from somewhere that isn’t CNN – since they own CNN.
Furthermore, with companies such as Disney buying 2st Century Fox, and, ergo, Hulu, they will be in a financial position to leverage their content against all other streaming services and create a backdoor deal with one of the nation’s major cable and internet providers to essentially gentrify the internet to their liking.
Today’s FCC vote puts us directly on that path.
“The FCC has voted to repeal Obama-era net neutrality laws.
“The vote came moments after the room was briefly cleared for an apparent bomb threat.
“Demonstrators gathered outside the FCC building on Thursday and piled flowers on the ground in an apparent memorial for the internet as we know it.
“Under the new proposal, the FCC would do away with rules barring internet providers from blocking or slowing down access to online content. The FCC would also eliminate a rule barring providers from prioritizing their own content.”
Make no mistake about it; Net Neutrality must be rescued from further exoneration lest we wish to end up in a neo-Fascist hellscape of media malfeasance.
Do not let the partisan hackery fool you – the issue here is not about democrats or republicans, Obama or Trump. The issue is about the freedom of information that allows Americans a leg up in the world at large. This is about freedom, and it must be treated as such. We mustn’t allow our political allegiance stifle us in any way, especially with a tool as powerful and as populist as the internet.
