FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said “for the first time, we’ll have enforceable rules of the road to preserve Internet freedom and openness. Only in the mind of a totalitarian, socialist can total regulation over the content that the American public will be allowed to see can you call what happened today FREEDOM.
The socialist left gives lip service to freedom and equality but what they really mean by this is that they want complete government regulation of industry, the economy, and absolute control of the population.
One of the surest ways to control the population is to control the information the population has access to. Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, and Mao knew this which is why they had complete and total control of the information the population had access to and this is what the FCC’s move is all about – CONTROL.
To this day China still has absolute control over what the Chinese population is able to access on the internet. Hugo Chavez just took control of the internet in Venezuela, the Hungarian government also took control of the internet this week, and the United Nations is calling for new, global internet regulation.
What we are seeing is a coordinated effort by the socialists to seize control of the electronic media. This move is not about allowing competitors to transmit data over rival networks as it is being spun by the socialist media, it is about controlling access to information.
A Federal Court already ruled against the FCC in this matter earlier this year when it filed suit against Comcast for not giving equal treatment to a competitor who was transmitting data over their network. Comcast argued that the FCC forfeited the right to regulate broadband when it deregulated the internet, a decision that was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2005.
Obama and the FCC have to know this decision will be challenged in court again, however, it has not stopped them from taking this unprecedented step to suppress free speech in America. Once the damage has been done and liberty has been usurped, it will be nearly impossible to gain our freedom back; as Ronald Reagan said “those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”
