FCC: First Amendment Does Not Apply to Internet Providers

Obama’s “net neutrality” power grab doesn’t scare you yet? Then read this:

Two weeks after passage, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) finally released its landmark “net neutrality” regulations Thursday morning.

Among its many determinations, the FCC stated that broadband providers do not enjoy First Amendment protections because they do not have a right to free speech.

“The rules we adopt today do not curtail broadband providers’ free speech rights,” the commission said on page 268 of its decision, noting that because they merely serve as a means for others to express themselves, broadband providers are not entitled to free speech rights themselves.

Makes sense to fascists, I guess.

    WTF does that statement even mean? Broadband providers are human beings in America, so they enjoy freedom of speech. If the FCC doesn’t like that then get ready to be spanked in the supreme court.

    OK, so now we have a precedent for the government deciding who can and who cannot be protected by the First Amendment. Now all they have to do is extend that to whoever opposes them. This tyranny thing is REALLLLY easy, especially with nutless RINO’s in Congress.
    Tea Party, get ready to be branded a hate group who has no 1st Amendment rights, talk radio, bye, bye, and so it goes.
    If you like your Constitution, you can keep your Constituion . . .

    Don’t hold your breath. Remember the Obamacare ruling and the treachery of John Roberts?

    Nah, it is my belief that we will have to build a whole new prison system to confine the reprobates on the national Socialist Left when all is said and done.

    With a special section for his majesty himself Barack Hussein Obama II (Peas be upon him).

    They can name it after one of their favorite ‘heroes’… Alinsky penitentiary .. Marx maximum security.. something like that.

    Exactly right, 762 (one of my favorite calibers…)

    The progs have been pulling this for years, mostly aimed at corporations.

    So far, they have failed. They need to fail here, too.

    No doubt about it — if there’s no push-back by real Americans on this, talk radio is next and will disappear forever. Apparently, the idiot fascists cannot read: ” . . . no law restricting freedom of the press, religion or speech” (paraphrasing Amendment No. 1) means NO LAW or anything else for that matter, restricting any of the above. Can’t be much clearer, unless of course you’re a moron, a little Nazi robot who will do anything your “God” on Earth tells you to do. Heil, Obola!

    LIBERAL LOGIC:
    The First Amendment protects people covered in shit as “art”, but not anything that criticizes any communists in the government.

    That’s the FTC, but you are right. The same government that failed to create a healthcare website is going to run the internet. What could go wrong?

    It is the FCC and their program to stop phone soliciting is absolutely worthless.
