One neighbor of Pai’s tweeted that signs protesters brandished named Pai’s children; others accused him of “murdering Democracy in cold blood,” still others asked how his children could look him in the eye.
Last week Pai sent an order to reclassify ISPs and terminate most of the bright-line network neutrality rules.
Speaking of the abuse he was receiving, Pai stated, “It certainly crosses a line with me. Families…should remain out of it and stop harassing us at our homes….It was a little nerve-racking, especially for my wife who’s not involved in this space.”
Pai’s Chief of Staff Matthew Berry has been retweeting the horrible tweets aimed at Pai and his family:
Fred Campbell, president of Tech Knowledge, was furious, stating, “The repeated racist attacks against FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and his family in their own home during the holiday weekend are horrific. The perpetrators of this villainy should be ashamed. These attacks aren’t net neutrality advocacy. They are terrorism.”
