GOP Tea Partiers and Agenda 21 conspiracy theorists

After New Hampshire voters handed Republicans an electoral shellacking, former GOP party chair Fergus Cullen blamed the defeat on his party’s “Tea Partiers” and “Agenda 21 conspiracy theorists.”

As if to prove his point, yesterday the New Hampshire Tea Party Coalition identified the greatest threat to American survival: the United Nations.

That’s right, the organization that was founded back in 1945 as the “League of Nations”, ostensibly to create a means of gathering for all countries to talk and keep the peace, has turned into an ugly totalitarian threat to every country on earth.

Repeating for emphasis: the UN has become the biggest threat to our liberty today — more so than any physical attack from any outside source.

And right on cue, Huffington Post reported that Republican state Rep. Lenette Petersen has filed legislation to ban implementation of Agenda 21, the U.N. plan for sustainable development that encourages resource conservation and open space preservation.

“It’s an important topic,” Peterson told HuffPost. “Agenda 21 is a dangerous program to get into. It looks cushy because of the special funding. They take over and citizens lose their rights.”

Petersen’s proposed legislation is similar to this year’s House bill that passed by a 207-99 vote before dying in the Senate. The more things change, the more they stay the same…

    The NH Tea Party describes the UN as:

    the organization that was founded back in 1945 as the “League of Nations”

    That’s extremely inaccurate  The League of Nations was an organization founded in the aftermath of the global; catastrophe which was then called “The Great War” or the “World War.”  (i.e., World War I.) President Wilson led the effort to create the League of Nations, although the USA never actually joined.

    The term “United Nations” originally referred to the various nations allied against Germany, Italy & Japan in World War II.  The term was first used four weeks after Pearl Harbour, on New Years’ Day 1942, when the USA, Britain, the Soviet Union, China and various other countries signed a joint defense treaty titled the “Declaration of United Nations.”   In 1943, the allies began plans to establish a new organization to replace the League of Nations. The UN as we know it today was established under the name “United Nations” in 1945, in the months after Germany and Japan surrendered.  So, in all fairness to the Tea partiers, I should acknowledge that the year 1945 is not incorrect.
