Czar Cass Sunstein has memory lapse – Video


Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein says “I hope I didn’t write it”. Sure. So we have a citizen journalist who takes on Cass. Exactly what our press should be doing, but what the heck. They don’t care about what is becoming of our nation.

Just prior to his appointment as President Obama’s so-called regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein wrote a lengthy academic paper suggesting the government should “infiltrate” social network websites, chat rooms and message boards.

Such “cognitive infiltration,” Sunstein argued, should be used to enforce a U.S. government ban on “conspiracy theorizing.”

Among the beliefs Sunstein classified as a “conspiracy theory” is advocating that the theory of global warming is a deliberate fraud.

While the DHS may be monitoring websites for security reasons, Sunstein advocated such actions with another goal in mind.

Sunstein’s official title is administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

 in a 2008 Harvard law paper, “Conspiracy Theories,” Sunstein and co-author Adrian Vermeule, a Harvard law professor, ask, “What can government do about conspiracy theories?”

“We can readily imagine a series of possible responses. (1) Government might ban conspiracy theorizing. (2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories.”

In the 30-page paper  Sunstein argues the best government response to “conspiracy theories” is “cognitive infiltration of extremist groups.”

Continued Sunstein: “We suggest a distinctive tactic for breaking up the hard core of extremists who supply conspiracy theories: cognitive infiltration of extremist groups, whereby government agents or their allies (acting either virtually or in real space, and either openly or anonymously) will undermine the crippled epistemology of believers by planting doubts about the theories and stylized facts that circulate within such groups, thereby introducing beneficial cognitive diversity.”

      But with all of his writings, it apparently is to much to remember about his thought police. Thanks for stopping by.

    His wife is the Big Red One’s new “Atrocity Czar” (or Czarina, to be exact) … well, she should know an atrocity when she sees it — she’s married to one.

    I am sure he was misquoted in his own paper. 🙂 These are dangerous people we are dealing with and they must be stopped!

    The man is despicable. Unfortunately he is just one of many in our government. We need to flush that toilette in Washington and start over again.

    We need to “Nudge” his ass off the stage this November. He is a crapweasel, but this is the kind of people who infest our government when a democrat is in the White House.

    Cass Sunstein is a sh*t weasel. Pardon the language. But see the plot of Stephen King’s Dreamcatcher.

      He is probably one of the worst in Obama’s administration, but he had learned to keep his mouth shut and stayed under the radar.
