Disaster for net neutrality (Supreme Court)

Disaster for net neutrality (Supreme Court)

Postby Swarfendor437 » Wed Jul 11, 2018 12:47 pm

Brett Kavanaugh has been announced as the Supreme Court nominee, and it’s a disaster for net neutrality.

Kavanaugh has openly said he wants to make net neutrality illegal. He has a frightening track record when it comes to Internet freedom and civil liberties.

But we can stop him. If every senator who supports net neutrality votes against Kavanaugh, we will stop him with votes to spare.

Brett Kavanaugh must be stopped or net neutrality could be doomed. We’re launching an emergency campaign to convince the Senate to reject him. Will you make a donation?

Brett Kavanaugh’s opposition to net neutrality is based on a twisted interpretation of the First Amendment. According to Kavanaugh, ISPs are like newspaper editors, empowered to decide what speech is suitable to share and what isn’t.

This, simply put, is nuts. It’s like saying the electric utility can decide what we can plug in and what we can’t. And under Kavanaugh’s theory, it doesn’t matter what Congress or the President or even the voters think. Any version of net neutrality could be thrown out by the Supreme Court as unconstitutional.

We’ve fought for years to save the free and open Internet, and didn’t come this far to let the Supreme Court throw it out.

To stop Kavanaugh, we need to do exactly what we did to get that “one last vote” to restore net neutrality. We’ll mobilize the coalition of free-thinking libertarians and progressives, small businesses, and other net neutrality supporters. We’ll flood undecided Senate offices with phone calls. We’ll use the Internet to save the Internet by making sure people know what’s at stake and how they can take effective action to win.

We can win this fight. There are 52 senators on the record in support of restoring net neutrality. We only need 50 votes to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation. But we need to start now.

Will you chip in to help launch an emergency campaign to stop a judge who hates net neutrality from joining the Supreme Court?
