FreedomWorks Foundation condemns the abhorrent personal attacks leveled against FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and his family following the release of the Restoring Internet Freedom order. Chairman Pai and his family have been the subject of a range of disgusting attacks, ranging from blatant racism to horrific and threatening messages at their home targeting Chairman Pai’s children, by name.
FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon offered the following comments:
"Regardless of the substance of the Restoring Internet Freedom order, there is absolutely no place for the kind of racist and threatening vitriol directed at Chairman Pai and his family.
"We fully support the rights of those who disagree with the policies we support to voice their opposition, but intolerant liberal instigators have gone way over the line with their attacks. What Chairman Pai and his family have been subjected to deserves the strongest possible condemnation, and where appropriate, prosecution.
"We are further saddened by the double standard regarding these attacks against Chairman Pai that seems to be at play. One cannot help but wonder the extent of the media firestorm that would be generated if a Democratic commissioner were subject to what Pai and his family have endured."
