Obama’s pals Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, former leaders of the infamous Weather Underground, also believed in the value of re-education. According to undercover F.B.I. agent Larry Grathwol, the revolutionaries wanted to establish “re-education centers in the south-west, where we would take all of the people that needed to be re-educated into the new way of thinking and teach them how things were going to be. I asked, well what is going to happen to those people that we can not re-educate that are die-hard capitalist? The reply was that they would have to be eliminated! When I pursued this further they estimated that they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these re-education centers. When I say eliminate, I mean kill—25 million people!”
Czar Cass Sunstein, former professor of constitutional law at the University of Chicago, is one member of Obama’s shadow government who holds the founding principles of the United States in high regard:
“Why should we be governed by people long dead? … In any case, the group that ratified the Constitution included just a small subset of the society; it excluded all women, the vast majority of African Americans, many of those without property, and numerous others who were not permitted to vote.”
This is a legal scholar? The folks that ratified the Constitution may be dead, but the document is not, despite the left’s never-ending attempts to strangle it in its sleep. Perhaps the brilliant Professor Sunstein is unaware of the many codicils to the Constitution called amendments. Or perhaps he just doesn’t want the annoying things to interfere with his poorly crafted pinko diatribes. I mean lectures.
Then there’s the notorious Kevin Jennings, who promotes perversions that used to get a person tossed in the can (if you’ll pardon the expression) instead of called on by the President of the United States to become the (God help us) “Safe Schools” Czar. Even a cursory examination of Jennings’ career reveals him to be an indefatigable proselytizer for the homosexual “lifestyle”. There should, of course, be no doubt as to exactly what disciplines he is attempting to educate children in.
And who could forget John Holdren, the Science & Technology Czar, perhaps the most fissured member of an administration laden with severely cracked pots. A sampling of Professor Holdren’s thought:
“Why should the law not be able to prevent a person from having more than two children?”
“Social pressures on both men and women to marry and have children must be removed.”
“Individual rights must be balanced against the power of the government to control human reproduction.”
“Perhaps those agencies…might eventually be developed into a Planetary Regime—sort of an international superagency for population, resources, and environment…the Regime might also be a logical central agency for regulating all international trade…including all food on the international market.
“Security might be provided by an armed international organization, a global analogue of a police force…the first step necessarily involves partial surrender of sovereignty to an international organization. “
Unbelievably, Holdren was confirmed by Harry Reid’s Senate.
There are 35 other Obama czars (or more properly, commissars), 29 more than under Bill Clinton (but only 6 more than Bush the Second), responsible for regulating everything from cars to climates, and answerable only to the President. Without exception, they are all either extreme liberals or outright radicals that hold views antithetical to those of most Americans. These are people that do not believe in freedom as you and I understand it.
And neither does their leader.
