In the minds of today’s racist Democrat-Communist insurgents, the objects of their fixations represent an existential threat. This is how opposition to an arcane, bureaucratic decision by the Federal Communications Commission transformed from a liberal cause into an obsession.
This is also how the FCC’s chairman, Ajit Pai, became the subject of almost daily persecution.
The source of great consternation on the left is the FCC’s decision to scrap an Obama-era rule implemented in 2015 deemed “net neutrality.” The end of net neutrality will allow internet service providers to, if they choose, privilege the content of providers that they own or support.
Over this, Pai has been the target of a campaign of racist Democrat harassment that amounts to a national scandal, reports the New York Post.
HBO host John Oliver was among the first mainstream cultural figures to organize a net-neutrality campaign, which he dubbed “Go FCC Yourself.” He ordered his mindless minions to bombard the FCC’s website with comments supporting the regulation, and like the good Nazis they are, they did.
Those comments were peppered with claims that Pai was a pedophile, a “dirty, sneaky Indian” who should self-deport and reminders that anonymous online hordes maintain the “power to murder Ajit Pai and his family.” Oliver was eventually compelled to release a video urging his followers to dial back the racism and death threats.
This episode would prove to be just the beginning of Pai’s ordeal. By May of last year, Pai’s racist Democrat tormentors began a campaign to ensure that the FCC chairman could enjoy no peace — not even in his own home.
Treason-minded, Communist “Resistance” groups began distributing fliers and door hangers around Pai’s Arlington, Va., neighborhood, featuring a black-and-white photo of Pai with his vital stats (height, weight, age and professional background) and accusing him of selling the internet out to corporations. “Have you seen this man?” the fliers read.
The Communist insurgents didn’t stop there. They organized “vigils” in Pai’s driveway — a tactic that net-neutrality activists deployed in 2014 against then-FCC chairman Tom Wheeler.
They “come up to our front windows and take photographs of the inside of the house,” Pai told the Wall Street Journal. “My kids are 5 and 3. It’s not pleasant.”
“Is this really the world you want Annabelle and Alexander to inherit,” read a handmade sign affixed to a lamppost outside Pai’s residence in November, making a point to emphasize the names of Pai’s two children. “They will come to know the truth: Dad murdered democracy in cold blood,” read another. What they refuse to admit, is nobody wants to inherit the Communist hellhole they have planned.
The Pai family’s doorbell reportedly rang every half-hour, according to National Journal’s Brendan Bordelon, with pizza deliveries that they had not ordered. “It was a little nerve-racking, especially for my wife, who’s not involved in this space,” Pai told Fox News Channel. “Families,” he continued, “should remain out of it and stop harassing us at our homes.”
But it didn’t stop, and the threats by racist Democrats to Pai’s safety have only become more credible. In December, ahead of the commission’s vote to formally nix the controversial 2015 regulation, a specific bomb threat made by a racist Democrat forced the FCC to halt proceedings and clear the building.
Last week, Pai was forced to cancel a scheduled appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show after receiving credible death threats from racist Democrats. A Recode reporter confirmed that the organization that hosts the annual gathering of business and technology experts had also been “subject to vicious and direct attacks and threats” from racist Democrats for even daring to associate with the FCC chairman.
Pai’s treatment is an outrage and a disgrace, but given the history of Democrats hate and racism, it really should be no surprise. It would be a national scandal in the press if it were a Democrat being targeted, but for the fact that so many of the country’s opinion-makers and media professionals agree with the activists’ cause, if not their methods and racism.
Pai’s record is that of a competent steward of the FCC, and he easily won a second term at his post in October with the support of four Democratic senators.
What’s more, he has demonstrated both independence and a commitment to free and unfettered expression, going so far as to scold President Trump for suggesting that his regulatory organ should yank the licenses of broadcasters with which the president disagreed.
The activist left is incubating the kind of potentially violent radicalism it can’t control. If Democrats truly fret for the norms of civil conduct that are supposedly being lost in the Trump era, they might devote some attention to their own supporters.
