Obama Information Czar Cass Sunstein Confronted on Cognitive Infiltration of Conspiracy Groups

Posted by on May 1, 2012

In a rare public appearance, The Obama Administration’s Information Czar Cass Sunstein gave a lecture at the NYU Law School in NYC yesterday, prompting Luke Rudkowski of WeAreChange to attend. Watch as Luke confronts Sunstein multiple times on an academic paper he co-authored back in 2008 entitled “Conspiracy Theories” in which he called for cognitive infiltration of conspiracy groups by the government.

yo yo

Good work Luke Rudkowski. Thanks for carrying. For caring. Cass can barely remember his own name. Surrounded by power bubble, him 'looking forward to dinner on sunday' with little minder guy, keeping ahead of defensive backstop girl 'doing the slalom' with Luke on way out. Does she get to have dinner too? Cass 'just dooing[sic] what his boss wants'. I guess it was 'his boss' got him to write that shit in the first place. Him and whatever other clueless hacks holding the ground against the seething 99%. anyway. he's getting old and doesn't need to remember.
No accountability for the thoughts and actions expressed in the paper at all.
The paper that does the 911 rounds over and over and over again, sais he cannot even remember writing it.

Its that easy.
911? It never happened.

Senile

Oh, no. Another senile, amnesiac public official who's power hungry for yet another promotion. If Cass has such a bad memory, he wouldn't be able to remember the law, making him a terrible candidate for the next Supreme.

Great interview, Luke. I'll have to make another donation.

I don't believe it anymore......

Over the years, during Supreme Court vettings, I have often heard pundits wax effusive about how this or that candidate was so brilliant and nuanced in their thinking. I don't believe crap like that any more. Those guys put their pants on one leg at a time just like you or I and let all that Solomonic Wisdom crap be damned. Don't let the Delphic Temple fool you, these people are not Oracles, they are mouth pieces. Sunstein is being considered for the Supreme Court.

Bingo

Truth : Its better then a pie in the face.

This is real journalism Luke, thanks for this. The only thing that i wish you had done was bring a copy of his work and show it to him and his handlers just what he "couldn't remember".

Luke's Intro

"I'm Bill Deburg from Brooklyn College " = Priceless

It sickens me that Sunstein's prominence

is because he is a con-man.

Deception is rewarded?

How twisted the world of power has become.

Obama Information Czar Confronted Over “Ban Conspiracy Theories” Paper

During a rare public appearance, the Obama Administration’s Information Czar Cass Sunstein told a crowd gathered at the NYU Law School in NYC yesterday that he has little recollection of writing a 2008 paper that called for a ban on conspiracy theorizing.

In the question and answer portion of the lecture, We Are Change founder Luke Rudkowski confronted Sunstein concerning his avocation of a “provocateur” style program to silence what have become the government’s most vociferous and influential critics.

With tongue firmly in cheek, Rudkowski introduced himself as “Bill de Berg from Brooklyn college,” before directly asking Sunstein to explain his comments

The Perfect Question

"Why do you think the government should go after family members and responders who have questions about 9/11?"

Sunstein: Liar!

Great stuff, William de Berg ;).

There is NO WAY that Cass Sunstein "cannot recall" the paper targeting those who dissent, ask awkward questions of the government, or promote conspiracy theories". This was his most visible work, and the essay that has received the most attention.

Sunstein was caught totally off guard - not expecting someone to challenge him in such an eloquent fashion in a public setting, and he was clueless as to how to address Luke's question. So, he lied, no doubt about it... Had he admitted that he recalled the article and tried to weasel his way out of it, Luke probably had a number of follow-up questions, which could have been even more difficult for him to answer...( I'm glad Luke didn't get tazered!).

One interesting observation.... nobody in the audience shouted Luke down. They probably *know* that 9/11 was not what what was sold to us.. but as of yet, remain closeted.

Hey Cass, do you need a media coach? Perhaps you should consult Frank Luntz.... on the other hand... no don't!!!!

Closeted.....

I wish you were right about people knowing and being closeted. My feeling was that these people were more like the "early adapters" of Nazism. They are the first party members that want to get into the vanguard of the next big thing. Remember, that John Yoo's law courses at Berkeley are quite popular. This can't be because he is such an "expert" on the Constitution but must be some other kind of requisite like with the Freudian School in Vienna wherein you couldn't get anywhere professionally without an association with and a nod from the principle players.

Luke's da man!

Luke will go down in history as on of the vanguards of modern day freedom fighters. Way to show this piece of slim up, Luke!

"Ah, ah, gee, I hope I didn't say that ..."

Not only did you say it, you slithering piece of maggot excrement, YOU WROTE IT!

Then this sycophant for the eugenicists tries to say that; "I write a lot of things, I try to please the people I'm working for." As though that makes it okay.

Oh well, he was simply pandering to whomever was paying him, and shredding his principles, as if he ever had any, along the way, so I guess that makes it okay.

Have we even sunk so low that people of this caliber could get so high?

Great Job Luke!

It appears that Mr. Sunstein is a liar, as well.

Selective amnesia?
Is that the best you've got?

I would say that Luke exposed this fraud as well as anyone could have hoped.

Praise and suggestions

Amazing scene
Very moving
Luke has great presence
Love to see Sunstein backpedal

Do need to comment from my nonviolence advocacy

I did very much enjoy the pseudonym," Bill DeBerg" because it is so clever, but, in general, giving other than one's own name could be seen to imply one is fearful of repercussions. Showing fearfulness should generally be discouraged.Because Luke is so fearless, it would be easy for him to be little concerned with such a problem. However, others could easily mimic such behavior in a less than fearless way.

It was overdone for Luke to follow him after he walked away. The content is where the focus is best.
Calling him "sir" when saying goodbye I particularly liked. Would have been even better to raise these very tough questions while calling him "Professor Sunstein" rather than "Cass"
This would be an appeal to those who are not yet on our side. In genera,l public action is best directed at neutrals rather than only appealing to supporters.
Addressing Sunstein's apparent distancing of himself without actually disavowing the statements was crucial. Without such disavowal, his distancing appears insincere. If he would disavow these statements, he could be told that the next time he came to New York we could have a banner praising him.
I see he has published the book,Why Societies Need Dissent, (Harvard University Press 2003). Would be nice to be able to raise contradictions between that and his threats to free speech.
Because he has been referred to by the Harvard Law dean and current Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan as “the preeminent legal scholar of our time.”, it would seem his lack of memory is insincere.
It is important for everyone to face the questions involved because he really could become a supreme court justice. I urge everyone to get google and or yahoo to give them notice if and when Sunstein speaks in public so further public challenges can be raised.
His bio suggests he still teaches as a visiting professor at his old stomping ground , The U of Chicago. Can anyone determine if this is true and the time and location for the fall? Would probably be considered a civil disobedience to raise such issues on that campus.

Luke Rudkowski’s viral confrontation with Cass Sunstein has now reached the mainstream… sort of. Glenn Beck recently featured the confrontation on his internet show, GBTV, but failed to give Luke and We Are Change credit for the clip.
