I suppose, at some point, this sort of thing will cease to be news — another Obama nominee gets the light shined upon them, another radical exposed. Deja vu, all over again.
The U.S. should move in the direction of socialism but the country’s “white majority” opposes welfare since such programs largely would benefit minorities, especially blacks and Hispanics, argued President Obama’s newly confirmed regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein.
“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.
The Obama czar’s controversial comments were made in his 2004 book “The Second Bill of Rights,” which was obtained and reviewed by WND.
Get that, folks? It has nothing to do with politics, policy or personal beliefs — the only barrier to turning the United States into a “worker’s paradise” like the old Soviet Union — is racism… The folks over at the Politico point out that Sunstein can’t be a radical, he’s a Harvard professor! What I think this really suggests is that the folks over at the Politico just might need to get out a little more often… if they think that “radical” and “Harvard Law professor” are somehow completely mutually exclusive concepts.
Perhaps, just perhaps, were Mr. Sunstein actually paying attention to conditions in the old Soviet Union, that socialist utopia, or Maoist China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, etc., he might have noticed other reasons why socialism wasn’t all that popular a concept in the United States. Even Western Europe’s experiments in soft socialism would be pipe-dreams without the NATO security guarantee — and they don’t always turn out all that well, like the NHS…
