Among the beliefs Sunstein would ban is advocating that the theory of global warming is a deliberate fraud.
Sunstein also recommended the government send agents to infiltrate “extremists who supply conspiracy theories” to disrupt the efforts of the “extremists” to propagate their theories.
This clown is going to create a tidal wave of conspiracy theories by saying he’s going to “infiltrate” conspiracy theorist groups and communications.
He wants to put paid agitprop agents on the web to disseminate government approved ideas into web blogs, chat rooms, forums, etc.. etc..
The government has been engaged in this for a long time now. There have been numerous programs going all the way back to the 60’s that involve government agents essentially running psychological operations against the American people. The most famous of which is called COINTELPRO (co-intel-pro).
An example of government discrediting private citizens that it disagreed with:
On top of that, he wants government to “regulate” the airwaves, which of course is liberal code word for sieze political control and use them as a tool of the State to push the State approved message. Using typical Orwellian newspeak, such a program would be called the “Fairness Doctrine”. Kind of like the “Patriot Act”, where by you’re not a patriot if you don’t support giving up your privacy and constitutional rights in the name of fighting terrists.
Of course, the CIA did all this under total black op secrecy, so its surprising to see a Czar out there openly stating that the government should be engaging in psyops against the public.
I can see NRA web sites being flooded with anti-gun agitprop, anti-global warming web sites being flooded with discredited bogus government paid research papers, and libertarian websites being flooded with anti-constitutional commentary about how certain founders were actually socialists (untrue) and in favor of a gigantic all powerful state.
Its bad enough people have to sift through piles of garbage agitprop pumped out by the State which is already spending millions on pushing its agenda, not including all the free air time they can command and a publicly funded agitprop tv and radio network. This “Czar” wants to flood the web with dis-info as well.
Stalin would definitely be proud. The Soviet State had a “Ideological Department” to manage its control over the media and State approved groupthink. Dissent with the State was verboten and numerous regulatory and dissemination agencies managed what thoughts were acceptable.
I for one look forward to the day I am arrested as a political prisoner for expressing my views in the land of the free.
