CONFLICT MONGERS 2: The Conflict Monger-In-Chief
MORE ABOUT: THE CONFLICT MONGERS
Today I refer you to an article, in which a top Obama official is advocating doing exactly that: Conflict mongering in order to disrupt or destroy internet groups that might be "conspiracy theorists."
The culprit is Cass Sunstein, who Obama appointed to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.
Sunstein is the author of an article that appeared in the Journal of Political Philosophy, in which he is quoted as saying that
"......we suggest a distinctive tactic for breaking up the hard core of extremists who supply conspiracy theories: cognitive infiltration of extremist groups, whereby government agents or their allies ... will undermine the crippled epistemology of those who subscribe to such theories. They do so by planting doubts about the theories and stylized facts that circulate within such groups, thereby introducing beneficial cognitive diversity..."
And here is another suggestion by Cass Sunstein from the same article:
"...Cognitive infiltration. Rather than taking the continued existence of the hard core as a constraint, and addressing itself solely to the third-party mass audience, government might undertake (legal) tactics for breaking up the tight cognitive clusters of extremist theories, arguments and rhetoric that are produced by the hard core and reinforce it in turn. One promising tactic is cognitive infiltration of extremist groups. By this we do not mean 1960s-style infiltration with a view to surveillance and collecting information, possibly for use in future prosecutions. Rather, we mean that government efforts might succeed in weakening or even breaking up the ideological and epistemological complexes that constitute these networks and groups..."
John Stossel has an article about that HERE.
Paul Watson has an article about Sunstein HERE.
Anyone who spends anytime of the internet would do well to read those references above and pass it to their friends.
Because if these articles are correct and the Sunstein quotes are accurate, that makes Sunstein the CONFLICT-MONGER-IN-CHIEF.
Now who do you think Sunstein, an Obama National Socialist, believes is a "hard core extremist that supplies conspiracy theories?" I believe that it was the Department of Homeland Security that outlined earlier this year, who an extremist was and who a potential terrorist was, did it not?
Sunstein advocates the infiltration of the "extremist" groups to undermine the basis of those "conspiracy theories." And his chosen method to do this is to "plant doubts about the theories and stylized facts that circulate within such groups."
I don't know about you, but I take that to mean: infiltrate groups, be disruptive, and eliminate them. His words for this are: "...introduce beneficial cognitive diversity..."
It appears he is hiding what he really means by using the words "beneficial cognitive diversity," when in fact he means neutralizing; that is, wiping out any opposition to the National Socialist agenda. What would be cognitive diversity to such a person? It would mean "no opposition to the National Socialist agenda."
Why would he not use those exact words, instead of "beneficial cognitive diversity?"
For the same reason that "Ethnic Cleansing," is used instead of mass murder; For the same reason "Ethnic Hygiene" is used instead of "push them into ovens and cremate them; For the same reason "terminate with extreme prejudice" is used instead of murder, kill, or assasinate.
Because it is believed that not using the exact term will somehow minimize or justify an act of terror? Coded language is necessary to hide or obscure transgressions. If there was nothing wrong with what is being advocated or carried out, why hide it, and why hide it in language? To avoid legal and/or criminal accountability later?
Of course, it might just mean that he is so highly educated and that's how he talks in normal conversation. But I think not.
Please note that the article in which he said those things was written before he was appointed to the Obama administration.
You might want to send a thank you note to the vetting department at your local Congressman's office.
In the referenced previous post, "Conflict Mongers" are some tips about how to handle this kind of verminous activity.
