Net neutrality supporters intend to ban Drudge. It’s such an oxymoron that the Alt-left advocates for net neutrality, yet it wants to ban the Drudge Report.Chairman Ajit Pai made a proposal to reverse net neutrality rules. The move led the members of the alt-left to engage in violent protests outside the Federal Communications Commission on Thursday.

FCC is expected to vote to undo the Obama era Title II rule that classified Internet service providers as utilities, subjecting them to more federal regulation.

Accompanied by their signs that read “Ban Drudge,” the protesters covered their faces with a no symbol over the Drudge Report, the highly trafficked news website run by Matt Drudge. Some protesters held signs to ban other news websites, including InfoWars and Breitbart.

Protect Our Internet campaign was organized by individuals who are connected to PopularResistance.org. The organization features several members of the antifascist (Antifa) campaign.

The campaign claims that it’s mission is to keep the internet vibrant, free and equal. The campaign also claims net neutrality rules are protecting our freedom to use the internet.

Net neutrality regulations lead to higher internet prices for consumers and less innovation across various fields.

One wonders whether Breitbart and The Drudge report is spreading the truth and as a result, they’re under attack from Net neutrality supporters. Well, that could be the case. Despite the factuality of the outlet, these supporters are failing to acknowledge alternative viewpoints. They don’t want to accept that free speech means letting everyone have a voice.

Reminder, just because some random retards support net neutrality and banning sites, doesn't mean everyone who supports net neutrality supports banning sites.

Without net neutrality, controversial sites are going to be the first ones on the chopping block to be throttled for PR purposes, because ISPS won't want to be seen as "supporting racism".

Theres a spelling mistake in the advert and its doing my bonce in.

There are plenty of countries that do not have net neutrality and have none of this mysterious censorship anon. Legislating against situations that have literally never happened is a waste of time. The only sites that have been considered for targeting by internet companies are the extremely kosher websites like Netflix and Youtube. Besides, discriminatory pricing is already illegal, making it double illegal is useless.
