Mitt Romney has been cozying up to one rightwing fringe group after another. Biblehumpers, chickenhawks, people who want to turn the United States into an oligarchy — Check. And now he’s finally connecting with the “Agenda 21” “Black Helicopters”
Rightwing demagogues have spent years manufacturing paranoia about the U.N. Black helicopters will land in YOUR yard, and U.N. thugs will get out and force YOU, at gunpoint, to leave your home and be transferred to a new assigned location (Agenda 21). The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty will confiscate every gun in America. (I thought that was Obama’s plan, not the UN’s. Can’t they get it straight?) And under the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, international goons will barge into YOUR home (your new U.N.-assigned one) and tell you how to raise your children.
Unfortunately, for every shameless demagogue fanning the flames, there are legions of dumber-than-dirt bone-stupid dildos who fall for this manufactured hysteria.
At a town hall meeting in Ohio earlier today, an audience member asked Romney about the usual U.N. conspiracy theories. Romney, undoubtedly thinking “OK, I’ve got a live one here,” responded:
“Turning to the United Nations to tell us how to raise our kids, or whether we can have the Second Amendment rights that our Constitution gave us, I mean, that is the wrong way to go, right? Do not cede sovereignty.”
So now the “Agenda 21” wackjobs are in Romney’s pocket. They probably were anyway.
