Please spread the word. Send a message through the site, and make sure this reaches everyone. This is NOT something that is intended to help anyone. This is something that is intended to sneak censorship through under a respectable name and demolish free speech and expression online. They keep targeting the online community because it's the one thing they can't control, which gets out facts the bought-and-paid-for networks won't talk about.
Politicians don't even understand sex trafficking, nor do they care about those victimized by it. You can see that by their track records. They're using this bill and naming it something they think nobody would dare oppose, and they're going to try and use it not to combat sex trafficking...but to further oppress any kind of speech or expression they don't like. THIS NEEDS TO BE OPPOSED, AND PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW IT'S HAPPENING.
I know the ongoing battle for Net Neutrality is still prominent on our minds, and so are the holidays. But this is far more important right now than the holidays, and Net Neutrality's fight is ongoing.
