HBO John Oliver Rallies Activists To Fight Trump Over Net Neutrality

Add HBO’s John Oliver to the list of comedians railing against President Trump.

Oliver is using his HBO show to slam Trump’s effort to revisit regulation of internet service providers.

Oliver’s mobilization against changing the current utility-type regulation of broadband providers unleashed the left-wing mob that is targeting Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

John Oliver’s “grassroots” activism against Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai is full of bot accounts, fake comments, and death threats against the chairman.

Oliver, the comedian who once took credit for spurring the Obama administration to adopt net neutrality, is once again turning to his millions of viewers of his HBO show for “grassroots activism,” as Chairman Pai is readying the agency to reverse the policy.

However, an analysis of comments to Pai’s Restoring Internet Freedom filing, which Oliver has dubbed “Go FCC yourself,” shows thousands of comments using fake names and bots posing as “Jesus Christ,” “Michael Jackson,” “Homer Simpson,” and “Melania Trump.”

The story also reveals Pai received death threats!

Oliver, like many in the entertainment industry, is responsible for inciting the left-wing mob.

The fusion of entertainment and policy is preventing a civil discussion about public policy including net neutrality.
