This report from Tim Murphy of Mother Jones may be the most unintentionally hilarious thing you'll read today.
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 11th 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 non-binding UN agreement that commits member nations to promote sustainable development. [...]
The meeting consisted of a Powerpoint presentation followed by a 90-minute screening of the anti-Agenda 21 documentary, Agenda: Grinding America Down. It was emceed by Field Searcy, a local conservative activist who was forced out of the Georgia Tea Party in April due to his endorsement of conspiracy theories about the president's birth certificate and the collapse of World Trade Center Tower 7.
To repeat for the umpteenth time, Agenda 21 has nothing to do with secret one-world-government plots or hostile takeovers. It's simply a guide for maintaining economic growth without destroying the environment in the process. And as Murphy notes, it's non-binding, meaning it's un-enforceable and it's not a law. It's more like a suggestion.
On the subject of mind control -- If that really were the case, why would the president command only 50 percent of the nation to vote for him? Why did the state of Florida remain so close? Why didn't he command voters to give him a Democratic House Majority so that we may actually pass communist legislation?
If our taxpayer dollars are paying for a mind control program, I think we should get our money back because it's obviously not a very good program.
Georgia Republicans were also reportedly briefed that the Center for American Progress and local chambers of commerce are in on the nefarious plot. And while those who associate with the former are probably used to being called communists at this point, I'm sure the latter would find this to be news.
