Note the Cheney-esque scowl. "Progressives" will use Cheney's scowl to paint him as some kind of real-life Darth Vader, but I predict "progressives" won't worry about the same scowl on Sunstein, 'cause this guy's one of their own ilk. They'll see something positive in the Cheney-esque scowl on this guy.
Story here. Read it all.
"The absence of a European-style social welfare state is certainly connected with the widespread perception among the white majority that the relevant programs would disproportionately benefit African Americans (and more recently Hispanics)," wrote Sunstein.He makes no case, offers no proof. He just makes the claim. And many other wild, extreme claims.
One extreme idea of his is to re-write the Bill of Rights into some kind of New Communist Manifesto or something.
Get a load of this pretentious, bizarre gobbleddygook:
On one page in his book, Sunstein claims he is "not seriously arguing" his bill of rights be "encompassed by anything in the Constitution," but on the next page he states that "if the nation becomes committed to certain rights, they may migrate into the Constitution itself."
Later in the book, Sunstein argues that "at a minimum, the second bill should be seen as part and parcel of America's constitutive commitments."
"Migrate into the Constitution". Sounds just like the Liberal bullshit in Canada where they wrongly claim that stuff can be "read into" the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. And "Be seen as" is obviously codespeak for "Look, I say it's so, so you should believe it's so".
Impressive language command, eh? It'll surely impress the intellectually lazy, and make them think he knows what he's talking about. They'll illogically reckon that since he sounds smart, he must be right, right?
Sunstein has been a main participant in the movement, which openly seeks to create a "progressive" consensus as to what the U.S. Constitution should provide for by the year 2020. It also suggests strategy for how liberal lawyers and judges might bring such a constitutional regime into being.This guy is Obama's handpicked "Regulatory Czar". Another extremist-ideologue, neo-communist revolutionary. Are ALL of the "czars" similarly extreme and revolutionary neo-communists? Odd how they're not being scrutinized and investigated by the Big Media, who do that with all Republicans.
Cass Sunstein wants to re-write the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Hitler re-wrote the German Constitution, thus enabling him to proceed with his own "progressive" agenda...
