Net Neutrality is a term that basically means Internet providers have to treat all data on the Internet the same. In other words, they can’t charge more for certain sites or slow down access to others. On Tuesday the FCC voted to change the regulations on net neutrality, which could either be a good thing or a bad thing. Democrats are against this decision so, let’s assume it’s a good thing. And speaking of which, in reaction to the FCC liberals have gone into full “doom and gloom” mode claiming it threatens our constitutional rights and will lead to a full ban on abortions. Yeah, they’re like that.
First up we have progressive lunatic NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio with this hot take:
Just a few thoughts on #NetNeutrality – first of all, access to a free and open internet is a fundamental right of every citizen. (1/4)
— Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) November 22, 2017
“Just a few thoughts on #NetNeutrality – first of all, access to a free and open internet is a fundamental right of every citizen,” wrote de Blasio.
First of all, this isn’t even close to being addressed by the Bill of Rights, which lists and protects our fundamental rights. If our Founding Fathers couldn’t have conceived of modern firearms, as liberals claim, they sure as hell didn’t see Facebook or Pornhub coming. Internet access is no more a right than free HBO.
Oh, and second of all, the Internet isn’t generally free. I know I have to pay for it. If free Internet is my right, where the f*ck does Charter get off charging me money for it?
That’s pretty crazy, but nothing compared to this from the pro-abortion kooks at NARAL:
Repealing #NetNeutrality is a direct threat to reproductive freedom. Without it, our access to information about how to obtain an abortion or other #reprohealth services could be compromised. https://t.co/tp0jkibVe5

“Repealing #NetNeutrality is a direct threat to reproductive freedom. Without it, our access to information about how to obtain an abortion or other #reprohealth services could be compromised,” screamed NARAL.
This is linked to a Vice article that says if there are less regulations on Internet providers that abortion will end up being outlawed. You can read it if you want, but I promise it will make your head hurt.
Again, we have a fundamental misunderstanding of the Constitution here. While there is no specific amendment protecting legal abortion, the Supreme Court made a strange ruling in the Roe v. Wade case that makes it legal. This decision cannot be overturned, so abortion will remain legal no matter what happens with the Internet. Did you notice how a lack of the Internet through the 70’s and 80’s didn’t cause abortion to be banned? I did.
The other thing that is going on here is the crazy notion that getting rid of net neutrality means the Internet is going to disappear. That is definitely not going to happen for the simple reason that it’s a big source of revenue. The FCC ruling actually means there will be more innovation and more ways to make money. The last thing that is going to happen is no more Internet.
Once again liberals demonstrate how little they understand about everything. This is also more proof that they should not only never have any decision making power but also that their opinions are worthless.
