Harvard’s propaganda for Obama

September 21, 2008

I liked this article by Washington Ellis of the WorldNetDaily.  However, I ‘ Reader Digested’ his work so you might visit his site and look for more from Mr. Ellis.

Let me give you a few examples of this Pravdaesque technique from professor Sunstein’s article:

  • Throughout the article, Sunstein defines Obama with such words as “empiricist” (acquisition of knowledge through experience), “progressive” (code word for “liberal” or “liberalism” which since President Ronald Reagan, has become an infamous epithet), “independent thinker,” “visionary minimalist” (advocating minimal [small] forms of government). Honestly, Sen. Obama possesses none of these qualities.
  • Professor Sunstein writes: Obama believes in an individual right to own guns. Not so. Obama changed his view to support the Second Amendment and conventional conservatism because he saw the handwriting on the wall regarding the groundbreaking, pro-Second Amendment case, D.C. v. Heller (2008) where the Supreme Court majority overturned a 33-year handgun ban in Washington, D.C.

Other issues Obama has been forced to move to the right on – thus angering his liberal base – include:

  • Obama’s backtracking on his strong and early opposition to the Iraq war;
  • Obama has said the death penalty may be appropriate for child rape;
  • Obama has voted for wiretapping reform that includes retroactive immunity for telephone companies;
  • Obama recently said that he does not want to reopen NAFTA negotiations unilaterally.

As a professor of constitutional law at Harvard, Sustain’s should be ashamed of himself for presenting such fawning propaganda as a reasoned critique, as if his only readership were brainwashed cultists. I am not one such person.
