“Cognitive Infiltration” of Conspiracy Groups: White House Official Cass Sunstein Confronted (Video)

Via We Are Change:

“I may agree with some of the things I’ve written, but I’m not exactly sure. I’m just going to do what my boss wants me to do.” —Cass Sunstein

In a rare public appearance, Obama administration official Cass Sunstein gave a lecture at NYU Law School, prompting Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change to attend. Watch as Luke confronts Sunstein multiple times on an academic paper he co-authored back in 2008 entitled “Conspiracy Theories” in which he called for cognitive infiltration of conspiracy groups by the government.

    A group that’s affiliated with disinfotainment mogul Alex Jones is worried about the government engaging in “cognitive infiltration of conspiracy groups”. Way to be perceptive, guys!

    I wonder if WeAreChange know that Glenn Beck pwned them by exposing Sunstein many years ago.

      The more people exposing him and his ideology the better for us all.

    Anyone else notice how he introduced himself before posing his question? Bill DeBerg. Classy.

    honestly, de Berg made Sunstein seem like a perfectly reasonable, intelligent man, fully engaged with the subtle ( and overt, for that matter) complexity of life in the 21st century western world, and the ubiquitous imperfection found there.. Going on to display a zealous sophistry and use of rhetoric for its own agenda, it was a further confirmation of my worst suspicions with regards media. When i was a child in the ‘golden age’ of the 1970’s, the Prime Minister would be in the paper once a week, if he had something to say. The constant need for 24/7 content, and the subsequent rise of the actual ‘creation of content’ by media organisations are symptoms of much that is wrong with our culture(?)/civilisation. I am being harsh on de Berg to illustrate a general point rather than any particular individual gripe. Though, it is certainly possible to view that whole sorry segment from the perspective of a narcissistic display, of psychopathic proportions. Which is par for the course with ‘Ambush’ style interviews, where the subject is shown disrespect and is boxed around the ring by the veteran pugilists in the interview chairs. This leads to the situation where the subject responds with defensive rhetoric and nobody says anything that has actual meaning. maybe.
