GOP presidential candidate and Texas Rep. Ron Paul came out Wednesday in support of the “blackout” efforts taking place across the Web protesting pending anti-piracy legislation many have decried as an Internet censorship effort.
Protect IP, or PIPA, is the Senate version of the House Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Wikipedia, Reddit, Google and many other sites engaged in a “blackout,” or self-censorship, on Wednesday in protest of the bills.
“My campaign, and the entire freedom movement, would not be as strong as they are today without a free Internet, and that’s just one of the reasons why the establishment hopes to censor it with SOPA and PIPA. I’m proud to see so many taking a stand today. Contact your representative and senators and tell them to oppose these disastrous bills.”
The rest of the pack are just sycophants to the whore, gangster media operations in Hollywood. The Internet doesn't benefit the establishment, they have no respect for freedom so they are going to try to play this game of trying to win the big money donors in Hollywood over to their campaigns. Recently Hollywood has declared that they're not going to donate to Obama for his non-enthusiasm towards SOPA/PIPA. He hasn't even come out against it, just his luke warm stance has them enraged.
