Alex Jones is the latest right-wing broadcaster to completely misrepresent net neutrality, telling “Infowars” viewers this week that President Obama’s support for net neutrality will lead to big government tyranny.
Jones, in his typically paranoid fashion, claimed that the White House will use net neutrality to “shut down” his Infowars website along with the Drudge Report, calling it a “high tech version of what the Soviets and the Nazis and the Chinese Communists and Fidel Castro and every other nut ball did.”
That’s right, supporting equal treatment of internet data and preserve an open internet is just like what Hitler did.
Jones compared net neutrality to paying the mafia not to threaten your family or your business, creating a “nation of sheep ruled by wolves” who will “put you in government housing pins to run your life, bring you down and imprison your children.”
“Well not me, ever!” Jones declared.
After completely misrepresenting net neutrality, Jones asked God to give him “the strength of the words to unlock the spirit of humanity with a huge awakening to bring these people down forever and to bind them to Hell.”
Jones cited Ted Cruz’s widely mocked “net neutrality is Obamacare for the Internet” tweet as proof of his absurd claim that net neutrality is a government takeover of the internet: “I like Ted Cruz, he knows what he’s talking about.”
