Georgia Nutballs: Green Paranoia and Obama’s Mind Control

November 16, 2012

Informative look at how conspiracy nuts are finding a sympathetic ear in the Georgia Legislature.

Turns out, if you care about the planet, the environment, clear air, clean water, or a future for your children – you are a commie.

ATLANTA, Ga. — Jack Staver wants you to know: the United Nations and much of the American political establishment is behind a program to strip America of its freedom.

“Environmentalism is one of them. There’s a thing called a liveable communities initiative which is incorporated. Smart streets, which they just redid. That’s all based on UN Agenda 21 type theory,” said Staver, who wore a 40 calibre pistol on his belt while speaking at a park in Marietta,

Last month Staver helped put together a meeting at the state capitol hosted by Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock). Rogers invited the entire Republican caucus. They watched a power point presentation and documentary about the UN agenda. Seth Clark, a liberal political researcher, attended and recorded much of the meeting.

“Implying that there’s a vicious plot to take over your personal liberties, and implying that the business community is part of that, it seems counterintuitive,” said Clark. Clark says he was ordered out of the meeting after an hour.

Earlier this year, Rogers cosponsored a senate resolution decrying the “social engineering” and “global political control” of agenda 21. During the presentation at the capitol, senators saw a slide likening the policies of President Obama to those of Cold War communists Josef Stalin and Mao Zhedong.

“What (Obama) is doing, and the way that the mandates are done and the things he’s implementing” justify the comparison, said Staver. “It’s not a conspiracy at all.”

Mother Jones:

President Obama is using a Cold War-era mind-control technique known as “Delphi” to coerce Americans into accepting his plan for a United Nations-run communist dictatorship in which suburbanites will be forcibly relocated to cities. That’s according to a four-hour briefing delivered to Republican state senators at the Georgia state Capitol last month.

On October 11, at a closed-door meeting of the Republican caucus convened by the body’s majority leader, Chip Rogers, a tea party activist told Republican lawmakers that Obama was mounting this most diabolical conspiracy. The event—captured on tape by a member of the Athens-based watchdog Better Georgia(who was removed from the room after 52 minutes)—had been billed as an information session on Agenda 21, a nonbinding UN agreement that commits member nations to promote sustainable development. In the eyes of conservative activists, Agenda 21 is a nefarious plot that includes forcibly relocating non-urban-dwellers and prescribing mandatory contraception as a means of curbing population growth. The invitation to the Georgia state Senate event noted the presentation would explain: “How pleasant sounding names are fostering a Socialist plan to change the way we live, eat, learn, and communicate to ‘save the earth.'”

    Agenda 21 is about more public consultation and local communities having a say when it comes to environmental decisions. In fact it is for MORE democracy.

    Here the official website of the UN => http://www.un.org/esa/dsd/agenda21/

    I bet these nutjobs have never read the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development.

    Wasn’t it George H. W. Bush who signed the Local Agenda 21 in 1992?


  3. These folks always exist in some form or another. They just become louder when they think someone closer to their political bent is in power. It’s not an accident that you didn’t hear much NWO and Agenda 21 talk before 2008, and now do.

    They’re the ideological children of the John Birch Society, who were the children of the Know-Nothings and the KKK.

    In all cases, the adherents believe they lack power (or that their power is threatened) by a group of people with a sinister aim. They tie together random bits of info, weave a patchwork quilt, and call it a conspiracy. The aim, basically, is to keep themselves in charge (or at least feeling they are so) and to keep the status quo. It’s tribal behavior by the weak-minded.

    These groups are used by a dominant political party (these days the GOP), because they’re easy votes and the GOP platform has similarities. Pander to them a bit and they think they have an ally.

    On a national level, the extremes always push the center. The danger of groups like this is that they can set a goal post for the discussion. Make it so far right, and the 50-yard line gets shifted in that direction. Savvier political operatives in the GOP know this – they don’t agree with them (and probably think they are idiots), but they are very useful as a tool towards their own agenda.

    They would not know a real communist if they ran into one. Nor is that catchall word descriptive of all the types of deep socialism.

    They claim to worship Jesus, yet have no idea at all what is is was to be an Essene. The Essene were a very austere sect and the Gospels are extremely anti capitalism. After all it was not the gays driven from the temple, it was the money changers. (Many of the worlds religious texts could be considered a warning against modern capitalism.)

    They love Israel, home of the Kibbutz. They love Israel, but they do not like Jews. Israel claims to be a Jewish state, but does not follow Torah. The Torah has very specific instructions on how to deal with strangers and care for the environment.

    They love freedom, but are so much more concerned about the freedom of their money than they are of my person. They are all for free speech as long as you agree with them. They are all for democracy, but only if you vote the right way.

    Their logic is what we would call cognitive dissonance.
