Obama's Information Czar Cass Sunstein a threat to liberty!
In this video Glenn Beck unloads on Cass Sunstein,Obama's "Propaganda Minister", and his theories about cotrolling thought, and speech by making"anti government opinion, ideas, and movements,illegal! It seems to me that this Sunstein fellow is a real whack job. What really is amazing though is-as Beck points out-Sunstein's own ideas amount to a conspiracy theory of their own! Maybe its time to hoist old Cass on his own petard!!
Then there's this post over at BrietBart T.V. http://www.breitbart.tv/uncovered-audio-obamas-regulatory-czar-pushes-creepy-plan-for-legally-controlling-internet-information/
Looks like Obama's "information "Czar" is a guy who thinks government censorship is a Good thing! I guess he hasn't read the first amendment lately,especially the part about congress not abridging the freedom of speech. Seems to me that liberals think that freedom of speech only applies to them, and ,liberal -so called-professional journalists.
Sunstein advocates that websites "voluntarily" provide links to websites that hold views opposite to what they are expounding! However-and this is a big however-if websites- and I assume sooner or later bloggers and every body else who posts on the web- would be required to post opposing views- if they don't want to do it voluntarily.
Sunstein calls it "mandates" and proposes that Congress hold hearings requiring what I've just talked about. This is exactly opposite to what the founding fathers believed. They believed that anyone should be able to put forward any political argument they wanted without fear of retribution from the government,and these fools wonder why there is a Tea Party movement.
While doing research on Mr. Sunstein I came across some interesting links. One is from facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cass-Sunstein here you can find comments such as...
"Cass Sunstein prepared a 2008 paper that proposed spying on Americans, infiltrating groups and organizations to obstruct Free Speech, disrupt the exchange of ideas and disseminate false information to neutralize Americans that might question government". See: http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=121884
or consider this post from the same page...
In a review of Sunstein’s Republic.com, he said that Sunstein had difficulty suppressing “the impulse to exercise centralised control” and that he distrusted consumer sovereignty. Nagel noted with disfavor Sunstein’s proposal to compel Internet sites to link to political sites that opposed their own...
Seems this guy just doesn't trust the people-or in my opinion - democracy -as well as-freedom! Consider Mr. Sunstein in his own words...
"I have argued in favor of a reformulation of First Amendment law. The overriding goal of the reformulation is to reinvigorate processes of democratic deliberation, by ensuring greater attention to public issues and greater diversity of views. The First Amendment should not stand as an obstacle to democratic efforts to accomplish these goals. A New Deal for speech would draw on Justice Brandeis’ insistence on the role of free speech in promoting political deliberation and citizenship. It would reject Justice Holmes’ “marketplace” conception of free speech, a conception that disserves the aspirations of
those who wrote America’s founding document.

Reinvigorate the forces of democratic deliberation?!!! What he means is to give the government more power to take away freedom and replace it with oppression!!! The founders would take up ARMS against this lunatic!! Wake up America Obama and his so called Czars are a bunch of "Communist liberators" and communistic liberation equals slavery!!!!
Time for Obama and his crowd to be thrown out of office_that is if Sunstein's "forces of democratic deliberation" doesn't cancel the next election.
