All of this despite the fact that when cornered, these Media Marxists begrudgingly admit they can’t cite a single example of a single private corporation – their psychosomatic bete noir – currently doing anything even remotely similar to what governments all around the world are doing all the time.
These Media Marxists at Free Press aren’t “public interest groups” – they are government interest groups. They are interested only in dramatically increasing the Leviathan’s size, scope and sphere of influence on all things Internet and communications (and anywhere else they can get).
The First Amendment was written to stop the government – and only the government – from censoring us.
Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech….
The word “corporation” (or “company,” or any variation on that theme) does not appear anywhere within said Amendment.
And as we’ve seen over and over – the world over – it is government that is far and away the largest problem, and the entity against which we need the Amendment’s protections.
It is thus a perverse, fundamentally warped and disingenuous effort by the Media Marxists – and anyone else – to cite protection of the First Amendment as a pseudo-justification for jamming the government into what has always been a government-free zone.
The Internet in all its forms – wired, wireless and on your cell phone – was here in America just such a government-free zone until the Media Marxists led the illegal government charge to impose Net Neutrality. Again, in the erroneous name of “protecting” the First Amendment.
As always, we need protection from the “Protectors” – Leftists and Big Government – far more than we do from anyone or anything else.
