Ted Cruz comes up with perfect definition of “snowflake” after Net Neutrality defeat, and left goes into meltdown

Snowflakes are all aflutter after Thursday’s Federal Communications Commission vote to dismantle Obama-era rules regulating internet service providers, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz not only has them pegged, but massively trolled them on Twitter.

The so-called “net neutrality” regulations, imposed in 2015, essentially treated high-speed internet like a utility, prohibiting them from charging for better quality service or specific content and even from blocking websites.

Since the Trump administration tends to believe that economy-helping innovation is best fostered in an unregulated environment, scrapping the rules seems logical.

Unless, of course, you’re a ‘sky-is-falling’ snowflake. In which case, the good senator has a few words for you:

“Snowflake, believing online propaganda: ‘OMG w/o net neutrality, the Internet is gone!’ Informed observer: ‘You know, the FCC issued that rule in 2015. The Internet grew up wonderfully free from govt regulation & this restores the status quo ante.’ Snowflake: ‘Uh, never mind…'” the tweet read.

All likely quite accurate, except the “Uh, never mind,” part. Cruz should know that liberals always double-down.

The Texas senator’s tweet drew plenty of negative reactions from people offended by his tweet and especially his position against net neutrality:





Back in 2014, when the Obama administration was contemplating the rule changes, Cruz was highly critical, calling it “Obamacare for the internet.”

“It puts the government in charge of determining Internet pricing, terms of service, and what types of products and services can be delivered, leading to fewer choices, fewer opportunities and higher prices for consumers,” Cruz said then. “The Internet should not operate at the speed of government.”

Time will tell what the rule changes actually do for people who use the internet, but Thursday had to be satisfying.
