Protesters gathered outside of FCC building in Washinton D.C. last week in support of Obama era Net Neutrality laws.
Their stated goal: to “keep the internet vibrant, free and equal.” This of course includes banning wrong think from the likes of popular conservative outlets like news aggregate Drudge Report, Brietbart and the lefts favorite punching bag Infowars. As the Washington Free Beacon reported:
Members of the alt-left who have been tied to violent protests in the past picketed outside the Federal Communications Commission on Thursday in protest of Chairman Ajit Pai’s proposal to reverse net neutrality rules. The FCC will vote to undue the Obama era Title II rule that classified Internet service providers as utilities, subjecting them to more federal regulation.
Protesters covering their faces held signs that read “Ban Drudge,” with a no symbol over the Drudge Report, the highly trafficked news website run by Matt Drudge. Other protesters held signs to ban other news websites, including Breitbart and InfoWars.
To achieve their goal of “protecting our freedom to use the internet” they must sacrifice on the altar of the leftism anything that does not perfectly align with their radical views.
The left doesn’t like competition when it comes to reporting the news.
