Ted Cruz junior United States Senator from Texas since 2013, kinda sorta trolled the Net Neutrality whiners, and it’s kinda sorta awesome.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) mock supporters of net neutrality, the rule repealed by the FCC that had required Internet service providers to treat all traffic equally.
There are 7,000 replies to Ted’s tweet, 98% of which are super-triggered liberals screeching at Ted for not supporting government control over the Internet. In essence, they are arguing for the guy they actually seem to hate (Cruz, Trump) to have CONTROL over their Internet, which is actually hilarious when you think about it.
Using a slang label for people who take offense easily to a lack of political correctness, the Texas Republican indicated that the backlash to Thursday’s decision was due in part to people’s lack of understanding of a complicated technology issue.
Snowflake, believing online propaganda: “OMG w/o net neutrality, the Internet is gone!” Informed observer: “You know, the FCC issued that rule in 2015. The Internet grew up wonderfully free from govt regulation & this restores the status quo ante.” Snowflake: “Uh, never mind…”

The Republican-led FCC voted Thursday afternoon to repeal net neutrality, which was adopted in 2015 under the Obama administration.
The regulations were intended to ensure Internet service providers treat all web content equally, preventing them from blocking, throttling, or interfering with web traffic by reclassifying broadband Internet service as a public utility under Title II of the Communications Act.
