Jay Rockefeller: Internet should have never existed



Mr. Rockefeller, you should be ashamed to lash out at a bastion of liberty and free speech, but your tirade is to be expected. After all, you're nothing more than a bag man for Big Coal, which you slavishly serve and help rape your beautiful state for a handful of coins.

You're also part of the "Wars for Empire and Israel" crowd, voting for the illegal and immoral Iraq War and for giving the president a blank check for torture. And to let the same spy on Americans without warrants. For which you profited handsomely, raking in big bucks for your "campaign" expenses.

You've voted against programs to help children and ones to help poor students to afford college.

And your part of that notorious Rockefeller family that has been running con games on Wall Street for decades.

No wonder you're against Free Speech.

Juust call it the Orwellnet.

I think it lies about the gravity of net attacks, and that most of the trouble comes from various nazis, not to.

As much as you and I don't like the Rockefellers, you did a misquote.

What he said was, in regard to his statements about threats to "national security" (from about 1:02-1:22):

"It really almost makes you ask the question 'Would it have been better if we'd never invented the internet?', and had to use paper and pencil or whatever. And that's a stupid thing to say."

Now, I'm POSITIVE these people would have preferred that the internet did not exist - not just for enabling the free exchange of ideas. Also for the internet's enabling of small independent businesses run by individuals.

However, Rockefeller didn't say what you claim he said.

The first rule of journalism is "get your facts and quotes straight".

Your distinction w/o a point ignores his exaggerated threat and his obvious agenda to destroy access to the internet .
"Power grids " can be destroyed , hell we had major power grids go down bcs of ignored repairs & lack of investment . They dont need the internet , they can sit back and watch , as U.S. imperialism sucks trillions for wars and occupations, as our infrastructure fall apart .
And he obviously wanted to frame the internet as some kind of toxic monster, as to float the idea and of course he didn't say it directly, but to even suggest it looks suspicious.
The government wants to control the internet because of their grand schemes are challenged daily , by freedom fighters .

Not without a point.

I have NO DOUBT that "they" would prefer we'd never had the internet.

However, you cannot say that Rockefeller said "(the) Internet should have never existed".

This is a mis-reporting of facts.

Otherwise known as crap journalism.

It's better to pair this with other evidence - as "stand alone proof" it does not work.

What JR did was ask a rhetorical question.

If you do not understand what a rhetorical question is (and apparently, most do not), see this website:
