The self-styled “civil rights” organization Southern Poverty Law Center, which despite mounting controversy maintains some links to government agencies, released a bizarre and factually challenged screed attacking critics and opponents of the deeply controversial United Nations plot known as Agenda 21. Apparently unfamiliar with the definition of basic words such as “conspiracy” and “theory,” or with the UN plan itself, the SPLC also lashed out at “activist groups,” “mainstream politicians,” voters, “extremists,” and others who question or oppose the UN agenda for what it calls “sustainable development” in the United States.
In mid-April, the largely discredited group released a “Special Report” entitled “Agenda 21: The UN, Sustainability and Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory.” The document tries to link opposition to the international “sustainable-development” schemes to the so-called “right-wing.” However, even in Alabama, where the SPLC is based, that discredited talking point has been exposed as ridiculous. Consider, for example, the fact that every single member of the state legislature, including all Democra....
“Agenda 21, a nonbinding United Nations global sustainability plan signed by the United States more than 20 years ago, is being used by extremists and mainstream politicians to stoke fears and stifle rational policymaking across the country,” the SPLC claimed in a summary of its “Special Report” posted online. Of course, the scheme was not “signed by the United States,” much less ratified by the U.S. Senate as required; it was merely signed by then-President George H.W. Bush. However, the UN plan is nevertheless being quietly foisted on Americans by all levels of government under a variety of innocent-sounding names. By “rational policymaking,” meanwhile, the SPLC presumably means the adoption of policies that the leftist fringe group supports.
Consider, also, that the SPLC’s description of Agenda 21 as a harmless “nonbinding” plan is completely at odds with reality and even the UN’s own documents. “Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts (sic) on the environment,” the UN explains in a brief summary of the scheme posted on its website. When considering the fact that the UN considers carbon dioxide, also known as human breath, to be “pollution,” the scope of the plot becomes even more alarming to critics.
On so-called sustainability, meanwhile, the UN and its ringleaders have also been fairly explicit in explaining their goals. “Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class — involving high meat intake, the use of fossil fuels, electrical appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning and suburban housing — are not sustainable,” explained UN Earth Summit Secretary-General Maurice Strong as he ushered in Agenda 21 two decades ago. In other words, the UN sustainability agenda eventually seeks to curtail people’s choices in terms of food, transportation, housing, and much more. The document itself makes that abundantly clear, too.
To monitor compliance with its bizarre, totalitarian-minded scheme, signed in 1992 by dictators and politicians purporting to represent about 170 governments and autocracies, the UN even set up a committee. “The Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) was created in December 1992 to ensure effective follow-up of UNCED, to monitor and report on implementation of the agreements at the local, national, regional and international levels,” the UN says on its website.
For the extremist SPLC, though, opposing or even questioning a UN “comprehensive plan of action” by all levels of government in “every area in which human impacts [sic] on the environment” must somehow be the handiwork of “right-wing” so-called “conspiracy theorists.” Yes, seriously; that is what the group is attempting to claim in its latest “Special Report.” Sounding wildly detached from reality — or deliberately deceptive, perhaps — report author and SPLC “Intelligence Project” Director Heidi Beirich even claimed: “The hysteria over Agenda 21 has no basis in reality.”
Another 'ploy' to et the 'focus-off-the-real-issues' by a left-leaning group . . . .
Don't forget that in the 90's Russia and China signed a treaty saying that US had to stop his dominance. Bill Clinton, Hillary's husband who suffers from satyriasis look the other way. We are being taken and people do not realize it. Wake UP! Grow up! Realize the danger we are in. It is time!
Re. the various actions of the Southern Poverty Law Center [SPLC] : make it the focus of a revived House Committee on Un-American Activities.
The SPLC is no better than ACLU. Both are backed by Socialist & Communist.
They are a bunch of loons. I wrote them a letter and asked them to please put me on their "HATE LIST" and told them that I was just saving them time and money. Gee, I never heard a word back.
When reduced to it's simplest terms, AGENDA 21, says stop eating, and stop breathing.......................but we only mean that for the middle, and lower classes, the rich still get to do as they please, especially so, since the super rich, are the ones bribing the politicians to implement these rules. And to make all of this easier for them, let us destroy world monetary systems at the same time, which will force them to starve anyway, since their so called money will buy so much less. PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE FORCING US TO REBEL, AND DESTROY THEM. THEY DON'T SEE THAT WE CAN, AND WILL BAND TOGETHER AND FIGHT THEM, TO THE LAST MAN. IT IS NOT ONLY RIGHT, BUT IT IS A RESPONSIBILITY, TO FIGHT TYRANNY. AND NOT JUST FOR THE UNITED STATES, AND OUR CONSTITUTION, BUT FOR THE SIMPLE RIGHT TO LIVE ON OUR OWN TERMS, IN PEACE, AND LIBERTY, THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE WORLD...................BEFORE THE PEACE WILL COME, WE WILL HAVE TO DECLARE, AND DEFEND OUR RIGHT TO LIFE, AND LIBERTY, EVEN IF WE MUST BAND TOGETHER, AND SLAY THEM. IT IS THEIR CHOICE TO ENSLAVE US. BUT I AND MANY OF MY BROTHERS, WILL FIGHT AND IF NECESSARY DIE, TO PREVENT BECOMING A SLAVE. DEATH, IS ONLY AN ILLUSION ANYWAY, BUT HONOR , JUSTICE, AND THE LOVE OF GOD, AND OUR FELLOW MAN, WILL PREVAIL, AT THE END. I DO NOT SEEK THIS FIGHT, BUT WHEN IT IS FORCED ON ME, I WILL NOT SHIRK FROM IT.
Americans need to know much more about this insidious despicable Agenda 21. It is commune building under the auspices of global warming which is a hoax. It is destructive to America in every possible way. There can be no good from it, only despair and communism.
Well put SammysDad. Agenda 21 will be the END of The United States of America. It must be stopped.
if you like your constitution you can keep your constitution
AGENDA 21 AND THOSE WHO ATTEMPT TO ENFORCE IT SHOULD BE "DESTROYED" IN A MOST VISCIOUS AND HEINIOUS MANNER!
Odd time to bring up Agenda 21 but this group is bad news all around. Many cities are fighting agenda 21 and they will continue to do so. The main focus is Obama care and it high prices and all those that voted for it. Benghazi and the IRS these need to stay in the media 24/7.
TO ALL: GHW Bush signed up U.S. for UN-Agenda 21 at Earth Summit in Rio in 1992...saying "his country would be 'world leader in environmental protection'. The Senate did NOT ratify. Fast forward to 1993....Bill Clinton formed a special committee via exec order to enforce moving forward with AG-21. The ultimate plan is 83% of govt dominance of public land. (BLM vs Bundy IS AG-21effort...but failed)
Locally: In 2011....18 of us 'patriots' attended a local TH meeting of city plans for 'Development Planning' that would affect 13 counties along TX Gulf Coast. We recognized (in advance) this was an AG-21 effort. There were approx. 70 residents in attendance. With all our 'questions' and "comments' countering their presentation....they had to shut the meeting down within an hour. We had the 'presenter' backed into a corner...she couldn't handle our approach or questions and what we were exposing. They called the cops...who could do nothing because we were orderly, not violent, nor belligerent...just 'asking question' (we purposely did not sit together). We celebrated after meeting at restaurant....with lots of laughs....patting ourselves on back....we won one.
Bottom line: UN-Agenda 21 is in force in every county; but hard to detect if unfamiliar. City Council meetings (or any announcements) relating to 'Development Planning' or new bike lanes; or local transportation changes, or city taking areas converting to mass domicile groupings via govt funding (ICLEI) are clues to watch for.
