Earlier this week (and thoroughly under-reported by the mainstream press) we were treated to another example of just how low the left wing of American politics is willing to stoop when, no longer content with relentlessly booing, demeaning and/or assaulting fellow citizens or members of the Trump administration, they began an intimidation campaign against administration officials’ NEIGHBORS!
Yes, people guilty of nothing more than having a home in the same general vicinity of someone they don’t like became fair game when according to the Verge, “…organizers, connected to DisruptJ20 and Code Pink, said they are “taking the fight to [Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit] Pai’s front door,” leaving leaflets on the doors in Pai’s NEIGHBORHOOD last weekend to protest changes to the Obama administration net neutrality policy.“

No longer content to let masked crazies have all the fun, on Thursday several Democrat legislators joined with alt-left protesters who want to ban conservative news websites at a protest outside of the Federal Communications Commission building. Websites like, oh,….this one!
The Washington Free Beacon was there and filed this report:
“Democratic lawmakers joined alt-left protesters who want to ban conservative news websites at a protest outside of the Federal Communications Commission, Thursday.
Rep. Barbara Lee (D. Calif.) told the crowd of protesters and antifa members to “stay woke” in fighting against FCC chairman Ajit Pai’s proposal to roll back Obama era net neutrality rules.
Politico Pro reported that four Democrats joined the protest, which included members of the alt-left groups who have targeted Pai and held protests in his neighborhood. Politico did not mention protesters wearing masks and identifying themselves as part of the antifa movement. They held signs advocating to ban news websites such as the Drudge Report and Breitbart.
“We must stay vigilant,” Lee said. “We must insist that our freedom of speech is preserved.”
Senators Ron Wyden (D., Ore.), Ed Markey (D., Mass.), and Rep. Jared Polis (D., Colo.) also “joined the activists” protesting Pai’s proposal, which would bring less regulation for Internet service providers.
The FCC voted 2-1 Thursday afternoon to begin the process of reversing net neutrality rules, including Title II, which subjected Internet companies to regulations on how they can manage traffic on their networks. The proposal will now be open to public comment for 90 days.
Politico mentioned Protect Our Internet as one of the groups that organized the FCC protest, but failed to mention the group’s ties to members of DisruptJ20 and antifa, which have been involved in violent protests against the presidential inauguration and conservative speakers on college campuses.”
And there it is again. Liberals just loving free speech – so long as it’s speech with which they agree.
