Michele Bachmann might be the stupidest person who can still breathe.

Do you know what net neutrality is? It is…

…a principle proposed for user access networks participating in the Internet that advocates no restrictions by Internet Service Providers or governments on content, sites, or platforms, on the kinds of equipment that may be attached, and on the modes of communication allowed etc. etc.

-Teh Wiki

President Barack Obama once said of Net Neutrality that he is “a big believer in net neutrality. I campaigned on this. I continue to be a strong supporter of it.” (source)

Therefor, Michele Bachmann, who clearly knows nothing about Net Neutrality and therefore should shut up about it until she at least learns what it is, says:

…. net neutrality … is essentially censorship of the Internet. This is the Obama administration advocating censorship of the Internet. Why? They want to silence the voices that are opposing them ….

I wonder if the people in Michele Bachmann’s congressional district realize that she wants to take away their internet as they now know it?

    I swear, if President Obama suggested that Apple Pie be given a special day on the Calendar to be recognized as a wholesome American food, that twat would shrilly declare it some sort of plot by the President to outlaw Apple Pies…

    But Greg, if Bachman only talked about things she actually knew something about, she couldn’t talk about anything at all.

    Oh wait. I get it now!

    GL,
    Your link to the video no longer works. It has been removed from YouTube.

    Send Michelle Bachmann back to Nazi Germany where she belongs.

    Write to Sean Hannity and tell him what the real definition of net neutrality is. And tell him that unless he and others at FOX start challenging the correctness of her statements (and others like her), FOX will never be considered fair and balanced.

    I did.

    Greg, isn’t the title of this one overly verbose?

    Put another way: upon which subjects should Representative Bachman feel free to speak?

    Oh noe7, Greg! You used “shut up about a topic you know nothing about” again. Yourenothelping Werenothelping will get their panties in a twist again!

    Honestly, if anyone confuses Michele Bachmann for someone who has something valuable to say, it’s kind of their own fault. Her argument is so breathtakingly dumb, it contradicts the very word she is so unsuccessfully trying to define.

    Have pity on the poor woman! If she followed the suggestion in your headline, she’d be restricted to saying things like, “Pass the salt, please.” or “I’ve had lunch, thanks.”

    I think the only way to enforce that would be to cut out her tongue and stitch her lips shut. I don’t believe she knows anything at all about anything whatsoever.

    “Corporate shill Bachmann opposes allowing Murdoch to censor the internet. Film at 11.”

    As an aussie, I’d just like to apologise for Mr Murdoch.

    we may think it’s real funny but she and her ilk give out information like the game where people sit in a circle and pass a message around.by the last person it’s so mixed up that the real message is lost.same here,by the time it gets to the third or fourth telling among the fence sitters it’s true that the POUS wants to censor your porn sites.

    “Michele Bachmann might be the stupidest person who can still breathe.” It’s possible, Greg, but don’t overestimate JD Hayworth.
