Hey, let’s not even let the ink dry before we take the next step! High speed internet is a civil right, and that means that black people should get it for free!
You think I’m kidding? Hell to the no to the NFW:
On Monday, FCC Commissioner Michael Copps proclaimed: ”Universal access to broadband needs to be seen as a civil right ... (though) not many people have talked about it that way.” Opposing the government Internet takeover blueprint, in other words, is tantamount to supporting segregation. Cunning propaganda, that.
“Broadband is becoming a basic necessity,” civil rights activist [ and former Executive Director of the NAACP ] Benjamin Hooks added. And earlier this month, fellow FCC panelist Mignon Clyburn, daughter of Congressional Black Caucus leader and Number Three House Democrat James Clyburn of South Carolina, declared that free (read: taxpayer-subsidized) access to the Internet is not only a civil right for every “nappy-headed child” in America, but is essential to their self-esteem. Every minority child, she said, “deserves to be not only connected, but to be proud of who he or she is.”
Read the rest, because there’s so much more there than just the race card crappola. Michelle Malkin, writing in today’s Town Hall.
The “net neutrality” mob—funded by billionaire George Soros and other left-wing think tanks and nonprofits—has openly advertised its radical, speech-squelching agenda in its crusade for “media justice.” Social justice is the redistribution of wealth and economic “rights.” Media justice is the redistribution of free speech and other First Amendment rights.
If Charlton Heston were still alive, there would be pictures of him holding a keyboard today. Because it starts with Net Neutrality, and it ends with “digital justice” and the left’s concept of the “fairness doctrine”. Which means Camp Ayers for you and me.
