But lest ye think conspiracy-mongering is isolated to the House side of the Oklahoma Legislature, state Sen. Patrick Anderson, R-Enid, is here to disabuse you of that notion.
While “Agenda 21” might sound like some villainous plot to rain down chaos on the order of cats and dogs living together, it’s actually a nonbinding set of UN recommendations to help form more sustainable communities by encouraging mass transit, sustainable farming practices and energy conservation, among other things.
At least that’s what “They” tell the public, along with the fairy tale that man landed on the moon, the president was born in the United States and, really, there’s nothing to see here, so please move along.
Among New World Order believers, Agenda 21 is a scheme for the UN to take away private property rights and enslave the inhabitants of wealthy nations so that the Third World may prosper because … um, yeah.
Anderson said he will introduce Senate Bill 23 to cut off state support for groups pushing limits on property rights.
Now, before any cynical types accuse Anderson of trying to fan fearmongering by confronting some giant UN conspiracy of the imagination, he told the Tulsa World that, as a farmer, he is concerned about the UN forcing regulations on dust creation and land use.
“There’s a place for all that, but we also need to make sure we’re not infringing on the property owners’ rights to use their own land,” Anderson told the World.
No word on whether his legislation, based on the same Alabama measure that inspired Kern, was penned in green ink and in Comic Sans font.
