April 5th, 2017. A Special Word from Mrs. President Hillary Clinton:
For too long now we have stood by and watched the Internet be a lawless frontier where Cyber-bullies, extremists, and other merchants of hate and intolerance can practice their backwards philosophies with impunity. I am proud to announce that in concert with the FCC and building on the achievements of the preceding administration, today the US Federal Government is taking a strong stand to ensure that hate-crime on the Internet becomes a thing of the past. With the passage of the new FCC Online Communications Decency Act, we now have powerful new federal tools to reign in racist, misogynistic, homophobic, extremist and other violent and disruptive behavior on the Internet. It does not matter where these backwards and small minded people hide, online. IRC Chat, personal blog pages, or social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and G+ - this law will empower our federal and local law enforcement agencies to root them out, expose them to the light of day, and punish them to the fullest extent of the law for their crimes! This will send a strong message to those who wish to abuse this medium to spread messages of hate and intolerance. We will not stand by and watch as "Internet Trolls" ruin lives any longer. We are now able to fight back, and we will!
