Looking at the ban on internet taxes from an abstract point of view, rather than a specific internet tax proposal.....

The consumer isn't subsidizing the internet company. The government is subsidizing the internet companies by making it cheaper to
buy from the internet company than a brick-and-mortar company.

And the irony comes in when people use "free-market" rhetoric to defend this government
intervention to subsidize online business.
