Cass Sunstein: Another Radical Czar

And the freak parade of Obama wackoes continues. Guilt by association has become guilt by appointment as another of Barack Obama's endless stream of Czars is fished out of the radical left of the democratic party.

You are still probably wondering why Obama seems to appoint a Czar a week. I mean, don't we already have cabinet members and organizations to monitor some of these areas? The difference, of course, is that Czar do not have to go through the rigorous, high-profile confirmation process of a cabinet so the president can appoint bedlamites without fear of a damaging questions being posed on C-Span. But have no worry, Khaki is here to help spread the word.

Today's bizarre czar is Cass Sunstein, Barack Obama's administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (try to say that 3 times fast without throwing up in your mouth). But it his extreme view of animal rights that gives many of us paws. According to Cass, a dog or a horse is more rational than a human infant and should therefore be granted the same rights. OK. Beyond that, Cass equated animals to slaves, and he wasn't talking about the way Frederick Douglass kept his hair.

In truth, Sunstein extreme views are not very interesting to me in what they say about his affection for animals, though it has inspired me to have a word with my dog who tends to ignore my commands when she is apparently part of a slave culture. Heel. What interests me about Sunstein's beliefs is what they say about his view of people.

For Cass Sustein, it is his role to take care of animals because they are lower on the evolutionary scale and thus need his kind hand of wisdom for satisfactory survival and sustenance. For Cass Sustein, animals and people are in many ways the same. Can you see where I'm going with this?

The next time you wonder why the radical left is trying to addict those they consider "lower" than themselves to the nanny state, think of Cass Sustein. To him and people of his ilk, most Americans need him because they lack his insight and capabilities. He needs to save them from themselves. He needs to oversee the decisions they make and regulate the freedoms they have to ensure they don't do anything foolish. He masters their destiny for them and depends on a future where they will become dependant on him. And that is the definition of slavery.
