Alex Jones agrees with Ted Cruz: Net neutrality is worse than Hitler

Published

on

Alex Jones stoked the paranoid fears of his listeners – and left no doubt about whether he was a Republican shill – by warning that net neutrality would lead to censorship of conservative Internet sites.

“This has been the plan for a decade – free-quote-Wi-Fi that’s paid for by taxpayers, but you have no rights on that Wi-Fi, and you can’t get to InfoWars.com or DrudgeReport.com, that the White House officials have said they want to shut down, basically,” Jones warned this week on his radio program. “So this is it, they’re coming.”

Jones, who claims to be nonpartisan, promoted a widely mocked statement by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who misrepresented the president’s statements on regulating Internet service providers like utilities to claim “net neutrality is Obamacare for the Internet,” reported Right Wing Watch.

“Bottom line, ladies and gentlemen: Obamacare is now moving to the Internet,” Jones said. “Federal regulation and control written for select corporations, right out of the FCC to shut down all of their competition, and Republican leaders – to their credit, have now come out with statements … saying that it is Obamacare for the Internet.”

“That’s what Ted Cruz has come out and said,” the broadcaster said. “I like Ted Cruz, he knows what he’s talking about.”

Jones went on an extended rant, growling and angrily comparing FCC regulators to Mafia henchmen, and warning the government wanted to kill or control all Americans.

“The FCC is going to come in and protect the Internet, ha,” he said. “You like living like that? OK, because you’re about to – a nation of sheep, ruled by wolves, and you beg on your knees to be slaves – all these fat, weak cowards sitting up there on television and tell you they’re lying to your family and tell you they’re going to break your bank and bring you under their filthy control and put you in their government housing pens to run your life and bring you down and imprison your children – and you submit to it with pleasure.”

Jones warned his listeners that allowing consumers to access any website or online service they wish without interference or additional charges from Internet service providers was some type of totalitarian scheme.

“This is just a high-tech version of what the Soviets and the Nazis and the Chinese communists and Fidel Castro and every other nutball did,” he said.

‘Washington is no longer functional’: Brian Williams admits he’s sad to report that ‘our government is broken’

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on Tuesday reported that America's federal government is broken.

"This was day 908 of the Trump Administration and while there is no joy in it, one way of summing up today is this: Our government’s broken, our politics are broken, Washington is no longer functional, and the cracks in our society are deepening," Williams reported.

"Much of this day was taken up by the discussion of racist statements by the president. Then tonight came the news that had so many people thinking back to when we were different, the death just tonight of retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens at the age of 99," he said.

Trump ignored being condemned by Congress and instead praised Republicans on Twitter for defending his racism

Published

on

President Donald Trump celebrated on Tuesday night despite the House of Representatives having voted earlier in the day to condemn his racist statements.

By a final vote of 240 to 187, Congress voted for a resolution saying, "Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.”

The resolution said Congress “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should “go back” to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders,” and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.”

The tortured madness of Donald Trump: It’s clear the president is out of his mind

Published

on

Where’s Shakespeare when we need him? Only the Bard of Avon could do literary justice to the tortured madness of Donald Trump, who fluctuates between petulant self-pity and weird self-praise.

His brags are especially weird because they usually involve achievements he hasn’t made. It’s as though his saying something makes it true — even though everyone except his most naive devotees can clearly see that he’s either hallucinating or lying. In June, for example, at a rally launching his reelection campaign, he retrumpeted an old campaign promise to “drain the swamp,” assuring the adoring crowd that “that’s exactly what we’re doing right now.”
