On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson discussed the Federal Communications Commission’s upcoming vote on new rules to preserve the principle of net neutrality, which he alleged are part of a “socialist agenda…to take control of everything.”
“The internet is a model of the world,” Robertson said. “It is free. Think of how many businesses have been spawned on the internet, think how much web traffic there is, think how much i-business goes on, think of all the conveniences that we have now as consumers and think of the constant improvement, the speeds and the things that are being done to improve the service that we have on the internet. Now, they want to treat it like it’s a water company or an electric utility with 1934 regulation.”
“The Obama people, you don’t understand, ladies and gentlemen, the socialist agenda is to take control of everything. They got their hands on health care and they’re about to ruin it, and now they want to ruin the internet. And I don’t know what we can do to stop it,” he said.
“I don’t want to live under a dictatorship,” he continued. “This is the land of the free and the home of the brave. Let’s fight for it. If you don’t stand up and say something, they’re going to run over you like a steamroller. That’s what’s going on. Our liberties are being eroded every single day that those guys are up there in Washington doing what they do.”
