Liberals Explain Net Neutrality to Steven Crowder - Or Try To

New Steven Crowder Comedy Video, "Can I Haz Interwebz? Net Neutrality Explained," Released by National Center for Public Policy Research

 

Washington, D.C. - The National Center for Public Policy Research is pleased to release today a new comic video in its ongoing series of conservative videos created by and starring conservative comedian Steven Crowder. This week's release: "Can I Haz Interwebz? Net Neutrality Explained."

In this week's video, Steven tackles the complicated issue of "Net Neutrality" -- so complicated, as Steven proves, its supporters can't even figure it out.

"...Net Neutrality is a complex issue," says Steven. "Net Neutrality is a complex issue. That's why I labored over this video. Sure, after you watch it, it'll still be a complex issue, but at least you'll enjoy learning about it... and the hipsters are always good for a chuckle (provided you are not within smelling distance). As Al Franken says, 'Net Neutrality is the first amendment issue of our time.' The only disagreement that I have with him is that he then implies that only a foolish 'Tea Partying Uncle' would say 'Leave the internet alone!' Why that's funny, I'll never know."

Steven adds: "No Sodium Pentathol was illegally administered during the making of this video."

Here's what reviewer Ed Morrissey of HotAir.com had to say: "Steven Crowder finally delivers his long-awaited video on Net Neutrality - and its worth the wait. Steven traveled to Austin for the annual SxSW convention to hear the arguments for government intervention in Internet bandwidth allocations, and comes away less than impressed. Its a debate drenched in technobabble, but the basic principles are clear and unmistakable. Who gets to control the operation of private networks - those who own them, or the government?"

"We cant depend on Americans to read everything wed like about every issue we believe is important. That's why we're so pleased to have Steven Crowder on board at the National Center for Public Policy Research," said David A. Ridenour, vice president of the National Center. "Steven helps us find creative ways to educate Americans about liberty, and his fans enjoy his work."

This is Steven Crowder's 15th video sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research. All videos can be viewed online here.

The National Center for Public Policy Research, founded in 1982, is a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank with over 100,000 recent supporters. Its 2010 revenue exceeded $12 million. Contributions to it are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.
