The head of the Federal Communications Commission Ajit Pai is apparently getting harassed for promising to repeal net neutrality.
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman chairman Ajit Pai asked people to stop harassing his family over his attempts to roll back net neutrality provisions.
During a Monday interview on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends,” Pai addressed a sign that was put up outside his home that mentioned his children’s names and read: “They will come to know the truth. Dad murdered Democracy in cold blood.”
“It certainly crosses a line with me,” Pai said.
“I understand that people are passionate about policy, but the one thing in America that should remain sacred is that families, wives and kids, should remain out of it,” he continued.
“And stop harassing us at our homes.”
I have a friend that lives near @AjitPaiFCC. Net neutrality "activists" posted these signs, featuring his children's names, outside his house. Pizzas also reportedly sent to his house every half-hour last night. pic.twitter.com/jWI4gV6Hvc

There’s no doubt that Silicon Valley is going into overdrive trying to keep net neutrality regulations in place. That’s because they’ve been the main beneficiaries of this policy. They are going all out with a propaganda campaign to make people believe that repealing net neutrality will result in the end of internet freedom. Their campaign has been effective enough to the point where they’ve convinced useful idiots to harass the FCC chairman’s family. The good news is that it doesn’t appear as if he’s getting scared off from the harassment. It looks as if he is going to go through with the repeal.
As we already know, the Silicon Valley position is absurd because internet censorship is in full force despite net neutrality being in place since 2015. The Daily Stormer is the foremost example of how Silicon Valley has conspired to eliminate a political view from the public square. We’ve been banned from multiple domain registrars and blacklisted from every major social media site and service imaginable. The FCC’s net neutrality regulations have done nothing for us.
The same companies responsible for censoring political views on the internet are claiming that we need net neutrality to prevent internet censorship. How can people not see the hypocrisy with this position?
Net neutrality supporters are more concerned with the theoretical censorship that internet service providers might engage in than the actual real life censorship engaged in by Silicon Valley.
