‘Absolute Sh*t Bag’: The Internet Destroys Trump’s FCC Chair For Calling To Repeal Net Neutrality

Republican FCC chairman Ajit Pai announced on Tuesday that the Federal Communications Commission was going to completely undo the Obama-era “Net Neutrality” regulations protecting equal access to the internet

By repealing Net Neutrality, Republicans will allow large corporations that provide internet service to charge more money and also to control how Americans use internet via blocking access to certain websites and amplifying others. The rules also prevent internet service providers from charging extra for better quality streaming or other services.

The move has renewed a fierce debate over free speech. Pai claims that allowing companies like AT&T, Verizon or Comcast to control internet access via “light-touch regulation” is a “return to the common-sense policies” of yesteryear — when the internet was a much smaller place. He said this would keep the government from “micromanaging the internet.”

Pai, who was appointed to the position by President Donald Trump, defended his plan in an OpEd for the Wall Street Journal, which he shared on Twitter.

“Today, I’m proposing to repeal the heavy-handed Internet regulations imposed by the Obama Administration and to return to the light-touch framework under which the Internet developed and thrived before 2015,” Pai tweeted.

Twitter users made it clear they did not buy into his decision to sell out the internet to Big Business, and their responses were brutal.
