376.) President Obama’s unconstitutional Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein has a vary interesting view about freedom of speech. You see Cass Sunstein has publically said that the government needs to step in and ban certian types of speech. He believes that the government should make anything it deems to be a conspiracy theory illegal. He says that the government can…
I.) Levy a Tax on anyone who spreads conspiracy theories,
II.) The government must engage in counterspeech to discredit the conspiracy theorist, (rather than disprove)
III.) The government needs to hire crediable individuals to engage in counter-speech.
in the article in which these suggestions come from the conclusion of the article suggest that the government should get involved in breaking up some conspeiracy theories, doing so by enlisiting private parties to supply rubuttals, and by infiltrating their groups.
this sounds a lot more like Soviet Russia then it does the United States of America, this guy is in a position of basically unlimited power as his position is not outlined by the consitutition and he is not bound to the approval of congress. Judge me by the company I keep, President Obama said, well it is clear that President Obama does not believe in the freedom of speech.
377.) President Obama has taken the fight against “confusing” information, his nominee for the United States Supreme Court has given and will only give one interview. This interview was not even given to a new network, instead the White House used its own new in house media to conduct the interview. Ms. Kagan was not interviewed by a trained reporter or a political analyst instead it was conducted by a White House Staffer. The video is available on the White House website. I watch this video and was disgusted at the soft open ended questions that were given. There was no confrontations or attempts to force Kagan to be honest, she was allowed to say whatever she wanted and not called on any of it. This form of giving an interview actually matches up 100% with Kagan’s views on the first Ammendment. In 1996 Elena Kagan wrote a paper in which she said “If there is an over-abundance of an idea in the absence of direct governmental action, which there might well be when compared with some ideal state of public debate, then action disfavoring that idea might unskew rather than skew public discourse” The government is required to step in and make sure there is not too much Rushlimbaugh, Glenn Beck, or right wing blogger nuts spreading the truth… I mean lies. Lies such as, the healthcare bill will raise the deficit, the health care bill will not make premiums go down, you know simple things.
378.) Elena Kagan thinks that Cass Sunstein is and I qoute, “Cass Sunstein is the preeminent legal scholar of our time — the most wide-ranging, the most prolific, the most cited, and the most influential” A soon to be supreme court justice supporting a man who believes that the government should regulate freedom of speech… I believe Ms. Kagan’s views are becoming far too clear, and the clearer they become the more terrifying they become.
