The far left is getting hysterical as Donald Trump’s regulators roll back the power grabs by Barack Obama’s regulators. Elections have consequences, as they are learning. But I never expected them to get racist about it, as they try to stir up fear, uncertainty, and doubt. Frank Pallone, New Jersey Democrat, will leave no stone unturned to add slime to the debate.
At the conclusion of his speech to the Open Technology Institute today, Frank Pallone capped off his rant against FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, with a jab at Pai’s heritage:
If you’re truly American, and care about the country and its democracy and the Bill of Rights and capitalism and competition, you should be on the side of Net Neutrality.
Watch for yourself (this closing remark starts at 37:50):
Ajit Pai is the son of Indian immigrants. His parents were doctors at a rural hospital in Kansas, where he grew up. He went on to attend Harvard and the University of Chicago, before embarking on a career in and out of government working as a lawyer on telecommunications matters.
For Frank Pallone to hint that Ajit Pai isn’t truly American is simply out of bounds.
