Letter: G-J editorial demonstrates ‘astounding naïveté’
"Linking a 1993 U.N. document to today’s most recent comprehensive plan updates is quite a stretch" (Gazette-Journal, Feb. 17). No it is not, and such a declaration reveals astounding naïveté. Any radical idea, to be peacefully accepted by a reluctant population, has to be introduced in increments. And it has been so introduced—over decades. Those "conspiracy theorists" who are putting on the brakes are doing so with the slow realization that we have been slowly duped. Our elected leaders are no smarter than we are—they simply have more authority, without having a clue.
DeWitt Edwards’s thoughtful and very well researched letter is not an example of the work of a "conspiracy theorist." The term, applied to any individual or group which contradicts the established narrative, is meant as a pejorative, and suggests the extremist, the fanatic. Conspiracy theories in Marxist ideology are to be identified and marginalized, even if they are based on facts.
Cursory research will produce the fact that the ultimate goal of the U.N. is Sustainable Development (only one of the components of the bigger goal)—code word for a Marxist assault on the developed world, particularly in the United States. Is it Global Warming or Global Cooling? Let’s just call it the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, since we really don’t know. Carbon footprints and such? Who is sure, but Al Gore? Both IPCC and Gore shared the 2007 Nobel Prize for their efforts to save the planet from capitalists’ abuse. IPCC is an NGO (non-governmental organization) of the U.N.
Last month, the Peninsula Patriots hosted a very informative program on Agenda 21 by Donna Holt, president of Campaign for Liberty. In attendance was an eminent professor from Harvard, who was visiting to interview Tea Party members and their interest that led to their joining the movement. While Board of Supervisors from both Mathews and Gloucester counties were invited to attend, none did.
In an interview with me the next day, the professor asked me with incredulity if I were actually connecting the nine mentions of the need for bike trails in the Mathews Comprehensive Plan with Agenda 21. I was. She then told me that the Holt presentation was factually incorrect, without expounding. I asked her if she trusts the U.N. site for information. The professor told me that she doesn’t go to the U.N. sites, that the U.N. "wasn’t very important. It’s just a bunch of committees."
Now, I find it hard to believe that an eminent Harvard professor, with a graduate student in tow, coming to the Lighthouse Worship Center in Gloucester Point, Va., to interview Tea Party members and listen to a program, which according to the media is firing them up, wouldn’t take a peek at the issue.
At this point there seem to be no experts. Research into issues and sharing the results is the only way we will know what is going on in this country under the administration that promised "Transformation." Transformation is happening.
The U.N. itself has a transforming site. Go to http://www.ec2012.org and see what is to be made of this loopy, dopey nonsense. The new-age look is bookended by "Inspiration Wisdoms" from the likes of Jimi Hendrix, "When the power of Love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace," to an open letter to the Earth Council Embassy, "Please support a world vote in 2012, to evolve the United Nations into the Earth Council based on Sovereignty of all Beings and Community Democracy" by George Soros. http://www.aquarianagecommunities.org, another U.N. NGO represents The Spiritual Foundation of the U.N. Look it up.
This is either a grand hoax or Saul Alinsky’s Rule #5: "Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counter ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."
Maybe this newspaper can help enlighten the readers … but when one reads the editorial, "Power to the People," one’s hope fades. John Lennon also sang "All We are Saying is Give Peace a Chance" … but it is hard to imagine a swaying-in-unison crowd of Muslim Brotherhood members.
