Democrats unveil bill to restore ’net neutrality’ rules

Democrats announced a legislation to restore the ’net neutrality’ rules that seek to bar internet service providers such as AT&T and Comcast from playing favorites with websites and services. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that the bill will be up for a vote in the House in a ’matter of weeks’.

Side note here. Who classifies these news sites and why is buzzfeed news listed as mainstream? Fringe-crazy would be more appropriate. What have these people been smoking and have they been sharing it around?

Net neutrality is internet socialism and I have no idea why everyone supports it.

Net neutrality is when the government tells internet service providers that they can't charge more or slowdown your internet service. In other countries when net neutrality doesn't exist. websites are like tv packages. so you might pay for a social media package like fb, Twitter, etc. other social media website ls would be slowed down so it forces people to use the bigger sites. The bigger sites pay bribe money to the ISP to not have their connection throttled. If you are an individual who posts controversial material a company can tell the ISP to throttle you so you can access the internet in the same way or at all. The only people against net neutrality are troll farms, isps and large corporations, and the misinformed. Net neutrality is the ultimate free market. Honestly a libertarians wet dream. A socialist internet would be where everyone gets the internet and you do a single payer program to pay for it based on how much money you make.

Don’t believe a thing about what MSM tells you about Net Neutrality. It’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and it’s a socialist idea.

Most here in favor of Net Neutrality have no idea why they are, they just parrot disproven Dem talking points.

I think we need an internet bill of rights before we even consider net neutrality in any form again

I’ve seen tons of experts say there were no cases of throttling before net neutrality, and there hasn’t been any since it was repealed. It feels like legislation for something that just isn’t a issue.

Just because it's name is Net Neutrality does not mean it's a good thing, unless perhaps you like big government. Why do you think the Democrats are so big on this.

Standard Oil Business practice. Get laws passed using language that sounds like to the voter what they want. But in reality, use such logic and twisting of the meaning of words to be the opposite. When the Democrats say Free Speech what they are actually saying is hate speech laws that they control. The Democrats don't want an open internet. They want an internet that they control. You cannot trust a political party that does not even have the honesty to tell you where they come from and what they really stand for. The Democrats, the party of the KKK, is a full-blown communist party. You cannot trust a word they say because they believe lying is a good thing. They are the party of "The ends justify the means" and the "One Drop Rule".

The communist Democrats are only jumping on this issue to do what they did with the Green New Deal; Use it to play with language, implement communism, and censor the net to eliminate wrong think. Don't believe a word the communist party of the United States is saying. They do not believe in free speech, they want hate speech laws, they want to control the speech not free it.
