Some have said "it will be a cold day in hell when I agree with Glen Beck about any issue." Well, today is the day you put on three sets of thermal underwear because you are about to mostly agree with the man that everyone loves to hate. Yesterday the conservative firebrand spent a good portion of his Internet program deriding PIPA and SOPA and calling listeners to action against it..
On his radio program Beck said that these laws give the government more power and giving them more power over the Internet would be disastrous. He also called on listeners to get involved in the protest and contact their elected representatives and voice their strong disapproval of them.
“I would urge you to call your Congressman, your Senator, call anybody you can," said Beck. "Reach out to all of your friends. Hands off the Internet. Hands off the Internet. I’m telling you, this is a backdoor. I don’t know what it is but remember when I told you, 'They’re building structure! You can’t let these things pass.'"
Beck also talked about the importance of free unfettered communication and the dissemination of ideas.
"It’s a different world we’re going into but it’s all based on the Internet. It’s all based on these connections. If you start limiting the connections, you’re going backwards as a society."
