Left’s Meltdown Over Ending Net Neutrality Includes Bomb Threats?

Written by Joe Scudder

When the FCC voted in favor of ending net neutrality rules they had to evacuate the building.

Since no motive was reported (to my knowledge), we can’t be certain that the bomb threat was phoned in because of the FCC ending net neutrality. But the outcome of the vote was predictable along partisan lines. So, it looks like the bomb threat was an attempt to block the vote.

The Daily Mail reported, “Regulators abolish ‘net neutrality’ rules in heated hearing that was stopped because of a BOMB threat as protesters rallied outside.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted along party lines on Thursday to repeal landmark 2015 rules that intended to ensure a free and open Internet, as protesters gather to oppose the change.

The 3-2 ruling sets up a court fight over a move that opponents fear will recast the digital landscape.

The meeting was evacuated before the vote for about 10 minutes on the basis of what Commission Chairman Ajit Pai called ‘advice from security,’ and resumed after sniffer dogs checked the building.

An FCC official told DailyMail.com that police had concerns after a bomb threat was phoned in.

Note that the Daily Mail treats Verizon and Comcast as horrible villains and companies like Netflix as champions of goodness.
