[Redesign] Don't Throttle Me by vexilografia

Today, DeviantArt has joined hundreds of other sites across the Web to fight for net neutrality, but we need your help!

Net neutrality protects open and equal access to the Internet. Without it, Internet Service Providers — like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon (among others) — could begin to charge extra fees, engage in economic censorship, and control what we see and do on the Web by throttling sites, apps, and other online services.

Why is this important? On December 14th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote to gut the protections for net neutrality.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

  • Call or write your Congress person and demand that they stop the FCC from gutting net neutrality. Call and write to congress.
  • Share messages on all of your social accounts begging people to join the protest now. There is no time to waste.
  • (NOW OVER) Protest on December 7 at a Verizon store near you. verizonprotests.com

It's a long message but I'll put half of it here 

The ISPs aren’t going to immediately start blocking content or rolling out paid prioritization scams. They know Congress and the public are watching them. Rather, the death of net neutrality will be slow and insidious. You might not even notice it at first.


And at the end it said this 

So don’t fall for ISP lobbyists talking points. They’re ALREADY claiming that net neutrality was never needed since the sky hasn’t fallen, and the rules haven’t even gone into effect. But also don’t panic. The Internet is not going to die next week. Keep calm and keep fighting. The Senate will vote in a matter of weeks on a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to block the FCC’s repeal. Now is the moment to get engaged.

Yes! Also I looked on Twitter and this man is trying to stop the FCC, he's going to work together with other people to stop the repeal of Net Neutrality in court.

To anyone reading this, and actually paying attention: Ajit Pai committed fraud and shady details just to get the repeal a winning vote, and the FBI should be notified about this. Here are a few journals someone posted concerning the matter:

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!! Owo Fraud! Fraud!!!https://www.deviantart.com/users/outgoing?https://twitter.com/MackenzieAstin/status/941462728748789760
So.... Ajit and FCC seems to have committed FRAUD. owo; That's all. Let it sink in.
What does this mean now, pals?
I'll be providing more evidence to come to support some of my previous statements here for those asking if this or that is true or not. ;3 I'll update abit frequently or until I got all I needed.
Update 1: Can people see the journal again when it updates...? .w. Screw it, I'll do it anyways. Listen up guys! Congress is making a bill to stop FCC right here and now!

Spread this like wildfire as it states! :3 If we do this, we'll totally win!! DO IT!!! XD
Links to evidence:

https://twitter.com/MackenzieAstin/status/941462728748789760 FRAUD
Mentioning the guys and gals that shared the information, cuz I want THEM to help spread this new update


Oooh... COME ON, Ajit! Seriously?! =w='https://twitter.com/GormoExJourno/status/942077784205221889
OMFG. Using the name of a decorative airman in freaking World War 2... to make a fake comment for repealing Net Neutrality?! Problem with that..... *Nostalgia Critic impression* HE'S DEEEEEEEEAAAD!!!! =w=
You're sinking SO low that you're using names of dead people, EVEN ones that are basically decorative or heck HEROES of the last great war to push the repeal? How DESPERATE and SICK are you, you heartless freak?
Aaaand... This may trigger a LOOOT of people off cuz this is the biggest middle finger to someone we ALL know... But...:
 I've only shared this part of the video, because of ALL dead people's name being used... He's got the devilish SPIRIT to even use Jesus Christ's name........ YES! JESUS... FREAKING... CHRIST!!! Our Lord.. and SAVIOR!! He is using the name of a man who died for ALL of our sins... just to inflate his support! *carface impression* I'M SURROUNDED BY MOROOOONS!!! =w='
Guys. Once more, plz spread th


This might be Ajit's breaking point!Ho. Ly. Cow guys! A person named :iconClub-Dreamverse: has shared 3 recent-most videos on YouTube about Ajit.. and it's real juicy! owo;
 First off. Wow! I had no idea about this 'Sinclair Broadcasting' thing, but... It seems there was a connection between the 2. I didn't 100% absorb it all, but it looks like he's got caught red-handed with this deal, and it looks like by now evidence was taken to Congress. We ALL knew he was committing fraud with the comments, but to do this too... =~='
 Secondly, again with Sinclair Broadcasting. This guy said that Ajit's talked with Sinclair Broadcasting BEFORE Trump gave him the chairman title in the FCC. Does this mean Ajit's forcing this whole repeal for THEM?! owo; And has been continuing this correspondence. So he really DID abuse his power!!! That means we were CORRECT about him! 100% And now they may have confirmed it!! XP
 Last vid. Well.... I'll just let it speak for itself. =~= It seems to go in great detail.
So all in all..


If you are able to do so, send this evidence to the FBI. They will not screw around when it comes to criminal scum like Ajit Pai, and it's one of the best bets we have to make sure he is stopped.
