Cass Sunstein: An even bigger threat than Van Jones?

In a 57-40 vote, Obama's Regulatory Czar of choice Cass Sunstein was confirmed to the official title of Director to the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

Sunstein is just one of Obama's many Czars who inspires controversy and strong opposition. Following Van Jones' resignation, attention has now been turned to Sunstein due to his radical ideas on free speech, the right to bear arms, and animal rights. He has been named "Obama's Gun Grabbing Czar" by radio talk show host Michael Savage, and deemed the "most powerful man you never heard of" by Fox News' Glenn Beck due to his extremely radical ideas.

With regard to free speech, Sunstein has said, "A system of limitless individual choices with respect to communications is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self-government." He also believes that the government should control the Internet through the implementation of an "Internet Fairness Doctrine."

In 2007 he spoke at the Chicago School of Law about an individual's right to bear arms.

In his 2005 book "Radicals in Robes: Why Extreme Right-Wing Courts are Wrong for America" he writes, "[A]lmost all gun control legislation is constitutionally fine. And if the Court is right, then fundamentalism does not justify the view that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms."

Sunstein also believes that hunting and the use of animals for food is morally akin to slavery and mass extermination of human beings.

During the 2008 Presidential campaign Obama told the American people to "Judge me by the people with whom I surround myself." Anyone who took a serious look at all of these chosen people would have to wonder if he might want to consider taking that statement back.
