Obama Wants to Reclassify Internet As ‘Utility’ So He can More Heavily Regulate It

Remember how the Internet was one of the last places of freedom in the world? Well, Obama wants to end that. He wants to reclassify the Internet as a “utility,” like your water or electricity, so that he can clamp down on the freedom we enjoy and he can then place heavy, oppressive regulations on Internet providers.

Of course, you realize that Obama has every intention of making sites like RightWingNews.com illegal with his new Internet-as-utility policy.

President Barack Obama wants to reclassify the internet as a utility, he said in a new statement released by the White House on Monday. This would allow the Federal Communications Committee to enforce heavier restrictions on it and protect net neutrality.

“The time has come for the FCC to recognize that broadband service is of the same importance and must carry the same obligations as so many of the other vital services do,” Obama said in his statement.

Obama is officially supporting net neutrality, writing that internet service providers should not be allowed to control, or “pick winners and losers” in the online marketplace.

Obama’s statement comes after the FCC said back in April that it was working on a new set of rules that would allow internet service providers to treat web traffic differently, potentially prioritizing large companies. Basically, the new rules would allow big companies to pay extra to receive faster internet connections than the rest of us.

Get ready for the end of Internet freedom if this is put into place. YOU are Obama’s target.
