Watch The Corrupt AF FCC Chair Join Right Wing Misinfo Operative To Dance On Grave of Free Speech
the enemies of free speech are dancing with glee – literally
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted Thursday to repeal net neutrality: which will essentially kill modern freedom of speech, in the internet age. Net neutrality is this idea that Internet data should be provided equally to every consumer, and was formalized under the Obama Administration’s FCC in 2015.
According to President Trump’s FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, though, net neutrality is instead hurting the common man by having the government micromanage the Internet, a nonsensical claim that does not hold up to basic scrutiny. Still Pai, who no doubt has a job waiting for him in the telecommunications industry, is adamant on getting mainstream support behind him, and to do so decided to make a video of him literally dancing.
Produced by The Daily Caller, a right-wing rag with the same journalistic integrity as Breitbart News, the video, titled “7 Things You Can Still Do On The Internet After Net Neutrality,” showcases Pai promoting the repeal of net neutrality as protecting Internet freedom whilst at the same time fighting Obama-era regulations. To do this, he lists seven pointless things people will still be able to do after Republicans gut net neutrality, with the last one being “you can still ruin memes.”
This is immediately followed by Pai embarrassingly doing the “Harlem shake” with a group of people. This would be typical Republican shenanigans were it not for the fact that one of the participants of the jig happens to be Martina Markota, a video producer for The Daily Caller who helped advocate “Pizzagate.”

“Pizzagate,” for those fortunate enough to not know, was a right-wing conspiracy theory promoted during the 2016 presidential election that claimed Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, was running a child trafficking ring out of various pizzerias in Washington, D.C., most notably Comet Ping Pong. It was of course idiotic, but it convinced hundreds of paranoid nuts to start harassing innocent employees working there, culminating in a man named Edgar Maddison Welch actually going to the food area and shooting it up, though luckily no one was hurt.
Considering even Alex Jones apologized for glorifying this abomination, it is really telling that Pai actively associates himself with a crazy person in a vain attempt at garnering mobility behind his pro-corporate, anti-consumer decision to take away a free Internet.
