FCC Votes To Seize American Internet Infrastructure To Promote “Equity”

    On November 15 with very little fanfare and minimal public knowledge, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to seize control of the internet in the name of promoting “equity.”

    The FCC voted in favor of a new set of rules called the “Preventing Digital Discrimination Order” that recommends for legal implementation a slew of new browsing restrictions that will forever change the way people interact with the online world.

    The 200-page report proposes the implementation of a slew of new internet restrictions, stemming from section 60506 of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021.

    “This legislation was meant to infuse some federal dollars into America’s sagging internet infrastructure,” reports The Blaze.

    “Unfortunately, this vote will grant the FCC the power to control nearly every aspect of internet infrastructure in the name of our secular gods of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

    (Related: Earlier this year, we reported that the government’s anti-TikTok legislation was a thinly disguised Patriot Act for the internet.)

    Anything online considered to be a violation of “equity” will be censored, controlled

    Based on the vague language of the new report, there is almost nothing that could not somehow be contorted into constituting a “violation” of “equity,” meaning the government will now have free rein to silence online free speech.

    Even the parts that specifically address “discrimination” appear to have been intentionally obscured to their full extent. This will allow government officials and agencies to selectively interpret what constitutes a “violation” and enforce it accordingly.

    “Most disturbing is that it doesn’t have to be ‘discrimination’ as it’s generally understood but rather ‘disparate outcomes,’ meaning all internet infrastructure must produce perfect equity or face the wrath of the United States government,” The Blaze explains.

    The unelected officials who run the FCC are expected to also pass additional regulations governing online talk about race and identity. This will effectively stifle all innovation while impeding internet access opportunities for some, all in the name of achieving “equity.”

    “If approved, this would mark the first time the FCC would gain the authority to oversee various aspects of every ISP’s service termination policies, including customer credit usage, account history, credit checks, and account termination, among other related matters.”

    Expert Evan Swarztrauber tweeted about all this that the FCC is basically taking control of the entire internet infrastructure, meaning broadband providers and the internet provider industry itself.

    “To call it ‘extreme’ or ‘radical’ doesn’t do this proposal justice,” Swarztrauber warns. “It includes price controls, forced buildout of broadband regardless of ROI, and more.”

    All of this stems from the Biden regime, by the way, which aims to give the administrative state total control over all internet services and infrastructure. It is a complete government takeover of the internet, in short.

    FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr commented on his agency’s move in condemnation, calling it a power grab that gives the administrative state “effective control of all internet services and infrastructure.”

    “President Biden has called on the FCC to adopt new rules of breathtaking scope,” Carr tweeted.

    “Those rules would give the federal government a roving mandate to micromanage nearly every aspect of how the Internet functions – from how ISPs allocate capital and where they build, to the services that consumers can purchase; from the profits that ISPs can realize and how they market and advertise services to the discounts and promotions that consumers can receive.”

    Carr would add that the FCC also reserves the right under this new plan to regulate both “actions and omissions, whether recurring or a single instance.” This means that an internet user can be liable for violations both for action and inaction online, depending on the situation.

    “There is no path to complying with this standardless regime,” Carr says. “It reads like a planning document drawn up in the faculty lounge of a university’s Soviet Studies Department.”
