Hey “Sportsman for Obama”: Obama’s New OIRA Director Says It’s Time to Ban Hunting

Wasn’t it PT Barnum who said, “There is a sucker born every minute and you can fool some of the people all of the time.”
Remember the folks at “Sportsman for Obama” who served as a propaganda tool to cover up Obama’s far left anti-gun record including the fact that Obama voted to allow prosecution of those who were forced to defend their own lives with a gun in their own home? Or were they just actors wearing shooting glasses because where are they now?
Barack Obama’s pick for “regulatory czar,” Harvard Law School Professor Cass Sunstein, may be the incoming president’s most popular appointment so far. Judging from his resume — best-selling author, “pre-eminent legal scholar of our time,” and an endorsement from The Wall Street Journal — we can almost understand why. Almost. Because as we’re telling the media today, there’s one troubling portion of the new Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) Administrator’s C.V. that has seems to have flown under everyone’s radar: Cass Sunstein is a radical animal rights activist.
Sunstein delivered a keynote speech at Harvard University’s 2007 “Facing Animals” conference. (Click hereto watch the video; his speech starts around 39:00.) Keep in mind that as OIRA Administrator, Sunstein will have the political authority to implement a massive federal government overhaul. Consider this tidbit:
“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.”
Sunstein also argued in favor of “eliminating current practices such as greyhound racing, cosmetic testing, and meat eating, most controversially.”
The Video (his speech is 39 minutes in):
“Never in our nation’s history have we had an incoming President and Vice President more supportive of strong gun laws. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence strongly endorsed the Obama-Biden ticket, and for good reason.” – The Brady Campaign
