D.C. Watson examines the UN’s attempts to take over the Internet:
While the United States houses, and provides much of the funding for the United Nations’ annual budget, that just doesn’t seem to be enough.
The U.N., with many of its own problems, such as astonishing corruption, is now being touted by the European Union as a candidate to control the Internet.
From the column:
Viviane Reding, European IT commissioner, says that if a multilateral approach cannot be agreed, countries such as China, Russia, Brazil and some Arab states could start operating their own versions of the internet and the ubiquity that has made it such a success will disappear.
Well then, why don’t these countries go right ahead and build their own and see how they do?
And, you’ll never guess who else likes the idea of the U.S. giving up control of the net:
The EU plan was applauded by states such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, leading the former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt to express misgivings on his weblog: “It seems as if the European position has been hijacked by officials that have been driven by interests that should not be ours.”
So let’s see if we understand this. The United States created, funded, developed, and marketed the Internet, yet we”re “hijacking” it?
Is there no end to the asinine statements these creatures will make? If that’s the case, then I guess I hijacked my own lawnmower yesterday. I cut the grass with it and wouldn’t let anyone else push it.
The safety of the American people comes first. And since some of these bottom feeders have websites they use to recruit Muslim terrorists and possibly do some illegal Internet banking money transfers from Islamic charities, the United States needs to have its hands on the controls. What would these countries do if they had the control?
Would they attempt to rid the web of anything that is offensive to Muslims? That in itself would likely empty out the entire Internet.
Would they attempt to cover up all of their future wrongdoings?
Or would they work to monitor and then limit everyone’s freedom of speech, for example, “Islamophobic” speech?
Does anyone remember U.N. Secretary Kofi Annan’s speech
Confronting “Islamophobia”? That’s comparable to confronting an iceberg floating in the lake of fire.
This might be a good time to contact all State Representatives and Senators to let them know that handing over control of the Internet to that waste of space in New York they call the United Nations would be the dumbest thing they could do, and we all know how handy they are when it comes to doing dumb things.
If these other countries want control of an Internet, they should go ahead and develop their own.
In a world where wild-eyed Muslims are busy raping babies and swinging machetes at innocent people in Sudan, sawing off heads in Iraq and Saudi Arabia, developing nuclear weapons in Iran, sending foreign fighters into Iraq from Syria, Iran, and Saudi Arabia to fight Coalition forces, wearing suits, ties, and kufis in Washington, hiding behind the Qur’an as they attempt to guilt-trip Americans into coddling Islam, strapping bombs to themselves in Gaza, fighting for the implementation of Islamic law in Canada, making threats to cartoonists in Denmark, shooting and slicing up filmmakers in Holland, attacking schoolchildren in Russia, bombing subways in London, bombing trains in Madrid, flying planes into buildings, bombing nightclubs in Bali, preaching hate in mosques, threatening to attack the Vatican in Italy, and attempting to blackmail the world with oil, the Internet should never, ever be handed over to a corrupt organization that panders to Islam as does the United Nations.
