You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence. - Charles Austin Beard

Obama czar pick: 'Raving animal rights nut'

Another fricking LOON nominated by Odopey!

President Obama's friend and nominee for "regulatory czar" is a "raving animal rights nut" who has a secret agenda, according to one consumer group.

The center quotes Sunstein's 2007 speech at Harvard University, where he
argued in favor of "eliminating current practices such as … meat eating" and
proposed: "We ought to ban hunting, I suggest, if there isn't a purpose other
than sport and fun. That should be against the law. It's time now."

He also said, "[Humans'] willingness to subject animals to unjustified suffering will be seen … as a form of unconscionable barbarity… morally akin to slavery and the mass extermination of human beings."

if Sunstein becomes "regulatory czar," he could "spell the end of animal agriculture,
retail sales of meat and dairy foods, hunting and fishing, biomedical research, pet ownership, zoos and aquariums, traveling circuses, and countless other things Americans take for granted."
