You think we’re done with people captured on video while listening to private groupthink? Ah, think again.
Mitt Romney wasn’t the first, and obviously won’t be the last.
Bryan Long of Better Georgia, a progressive group, sends the following 52-minute video of a session held at the Capitol for Republican state senators last month on Agenda 21, the alleged United Nations-driven conspiracy to harness private property through rezoning and planned-use ordinances passed by local governments.
The session was held Oct. 11. We have not checked their accounts, but we’re told that several senators claimed their per diem for attending the session. Long said his group delayed release of the video to avoid the media clutter of the presidential campaign. Watch it here:
The October meeting was called by Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock. In the foreground of the video, you can also see state Sens. Buddy Carter, R-Pooler, and Barry Loudermilk, R-Cassville.
The leader of the discussion is Field Searcy, a former member of the Georgia Tea Party. The videographer was ordered to stop recording after almost an hour – which he did. Then he was escorted out.
But the open camera captured an outline of the program – which identified the United Nations, some non-governmental organizations, state government entities and chambers of commerce as bad actors.
Very specifically, Searcy cited public/private partnerships, like the one that will be building extra lanes up I-75 and I-547, and the trend toward regional government, as unsuccessfully attempted in this summer’s TSPLOST vote, as evidence of the conspiracy.
“Our own governments are doing this. Our own local city councils and county commissions – they’re doing this,” Searcy says on the video. He referred to Agenda 21 a “conspiracy to transform America from the land of the free, to the land of the collective.”
Searcy declared Agenda 21 was being pushed through a form of brain-washing:
”The Delphi technique was developed by the Rand Corporation during the Cold War as a mind-control technique. It’s also known as ‘consensive process.’ But basically the goal of the Delphi technique is to lead is to lead a targeted group of people to a pre-determined outcome…..”
In Georgia, Searcy cited regulations issued by the state Department of Community Affairs, and a 2007 planning document adopted by the Cobb County Commission as specific examples of Agenda 21 regulation. Which means Attorney General Sam Olens, who was Cobb commission chairman during the period, might want to pay attention.
The program also featured a video by Dick Morris, the political analyst, who declared that President Barack Obama was attempting to drive populations from the suburbs to urban cores in order to further Agenda 21 concerns.
