Glenn Beck: Sunstein 'Most Dangerous' Czar

Conservative talker Glenn Beck says Cass Sunstein, who is awaiting Senate confirmation as President Obama's new Regulatory Czar, "is probably the most dangerous czar out there."

Sunstein, a Harvard Law School professor and longtime friend of Obama, would head the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, and oversee all governmental regulations.

Beck blasted Sunstein on the air Wednesday and outlined several of his positions:

  • "Cass Sunstein is a guy who is against the Second Amendment, who believes that the purpose of the Second Amendment is not an individual right but a federal right. He says almost all gun control legislation is constitutionally fine."

  • "He also believes that we ought to ban hunting. He says a willingness to subject animals to suffering will be seen as a form of barbarity, morally akin to slavery and the mass extermination of human beings. He believes that animals should have a right, should be able to bring suit, because they are not property. . .

    "This is a guy who thinks that rats should be able to have attorneys. If you have rats in your basement, you are not to poison rats. You can't make this stuff up."

  • "On free speech, Cass Sunstein says a system of limitless individual choices with respect to communications is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self-government."

    Beck said Sunstein "would like to control the Internet" and espouses "a legislative effort to regulate broadcasting in the interest of Democratic principles. Wow, that's the words that [Venezuelan President Hugo] Chavez always used.

  • "On taxes, Sunstein scolds readers like small-minded selfish children for opposing the size, scope, expansion, and skyrocketing expense of the government."

    Beck said Democrats need 60 votes to confirm Sunstein but "they cannot get 60 votes with Ted Kennedy gone. That means every single Republican must stand against Cass Sunstein, and most of these weasels in Washington haven't done their homework enough to know who this guy is."

    Beck told listeners: "It is time to get everyone you know to call Capitol Hill" and voice opposition to Sunstein. "Call the Senate," because Sunstein is "the most dangerous guy out there right now."
