Let me tell you a story.
Once upon a time, there was a girl who took a two-week class. In that class, she and her group picked a topic, worked together, and presented their topic to the class. This girl and her group chose Net Neutrality as their topic, and as part of their presentation they created a blog and a PowerPoint slideshow. No big deal, right?
What if I told you that this class project was leaked to the super-lefties of the world and that they are FREAKING OUT? You would think that they would have more sense than that, right?
If you can't tell by now, this is a true story. My friend Kristin put together a PowerPoint about Net Neutrality and how to fight it. Someone leaked her class assignment to Think Progress and other civilized and tolerant left-wingers, and they are indeed freaking out. I know you think I am exaggerating, but I am not. They are acting as though they have found the documents that prove JFK was not killed by a lone gunman. Seriously.
They have taken over the Facebook page, the blog, and are dragging Kristin's good name through the mud. She is getting death threats and obscene messages, and it is unacceptable. They are lying through their teeth and frothing at the mouth, asserting that the PowerPoint was financed by some shady uber-coalition of free-market think tanks and activist groups (which they call "corporate") and that Kristin is just a tool for "the man."
I find this to be pretty funny because a conservative activist organization that has millions of contributors and donors as well as a wealthy benefactor, is somehow corporate, but a progressive activist organization that has millions of contributors and donors AND a wealthy benefactor (paging George Soros) is somehow grassroots.
Enough is enough. If you have a few extra minutes today, please consider dropping by the Facebook page and the blog and leaving supportive comments for Kristin, and for the argument against Net Neutrality.
And honestly, I've just been making fun of them because these groups and people have become caricatures of themselves and everyday they seem to fling themselves further and further away from reality.
