Silicon Valley Dem: Net Neutrality is More Important Than Human Rights Abuses

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), the 41-year-old Democrat who represents Silicon Valley, tweeted Thursday that Sen. Marco Rubio’s attacks against Apple CEO Tim Cook for capitulating to China should be ignored because the Florida senator does not support net neutrality.

To be clear: the communist regime in China is limiting internet access to its citizens in order to quell any potential political uprising, and to continue to oppress the free speech rights of its people. Human Rights Watch explains:

The Chinese government tightly restricts freedom of expression through censorship and punishments. While the Internet has offered a marginally freer space, the government censors politically unacceptable information through means such as the “Great Firewall.”
