Read that headline again. Do you remember SOPA? That thing a couple years ago that threatened to destroy the internet as we know it? That thing that launched a thousand ships from the tech sector and every website (including this one) went dark in protest? One of its biggest proponents has been tapped to write the 2016 Democratic Party platform. That is, the entire “gameplan” for the next presidential term should the Democrats keep the White House. What do you think the Establishment’s goals over the next 4 years will be with this rank-and-file idiot holding the pen?
The Democratic Party has appointed a committee tasked with drafting the party’s platform. The 15-member panel includes MPAA lobbyist Howard L Berman, an attorney and former U.S. Representative who not only co-sponsored SOPA and tried to enshrine P2P network sabotage in law, but has also been funded by Hollywood throughout his career.
