Clinton administration staff and the Democrat National Committee warned of the Internet’s use by the “right-wing conspiracy” way back in 19995. Just released documents (on Good Friday, naturally) from the Clinton Library. Now we know where Hillary’s talking point came from.
The White House counsel’s office and Democratic National Committee produced the report, which explains how “Republican staffers surf the Internet,” and describes it as “one of the major and most dynamic modes of communication.” “The Internet can link people, groups and organizations together instantly,” the report reads. “Moreover, it allows an extraordinary amount of unregulated data and information to be located in one area and available to all. The right wing has seized upon the internet as a means of communicating its ideas to people. Moreover, evidence exists that Republican staffers surf the internet, interacting with extremists in order to exchange ideas and information.”
“Unregulated information”: the fear of every despot.
