The Council has spoken, the verdict is in and the results for this week are carved eternally in the records of cyberspace.
This week’s Watcher’s Council nominations were especially scrumptious, and I personally had a difficult time voting. To make things even worse, in the end we wound up with a tie between two superb pieces, The Fascist Stealth of Agenda 21 by The Noisy Room and The New Misogyny: The Left’s Sexist Treatment of Conservative Women by The Razor, and it was my unpleasant duty as Watcher to have to pick between the two of them..but that’s why I get paid the big bucks, no?
While The Razor’s piece admirably caught the meme of the outright demonization of women who stray off the Leftist plantation, The Noisy Room’s detailed expose’ of the stealth agenda to curtail our freedoms ultimately won me over. Here’s a slice:
I didn’t even know about Agenda 21 until a couple of months ago. Did you know it has been around since 1992? It is quietly and stealthily being implemented throughout the United States and the world. And within its scope is contained some oldie but goody concerns that I have held for some time: confiscation of public lands by the government (the Wilderness Project), EPA over-regulation, population distribution and control and the list just keeps getting longer and scarier… Agenda 21 is a 40 chapter plan that lists a series of goals to be achieved globally. It is the global blueprint for changing the way we “live, eat, learn and communicate” because we must “save the earth.” Humans be damned.
Under Agenda 21, everything you can imagine would be heavily controlled by the government: water, electricity and transportation are just some of the areas of concentration that are targeted. This new way of living would usher in an uber-nanny state globally, the likes of which we have never dreamed of. Forget one-world government… Think one-world totalitarian regime.
So what exactly does Agenda 21 entail? It consists of 115 specific programs designed to facilitate, or to force, the transition to Sustainable Development. The objective, clearly enunciated by the leaders of the Earth Summit, is to bring about a change in the present system of independent nations.
In our Non-council category, the winner was Right, Wing Nut for Sarah Palin Loves The Jews More Than The Jews Love Themselves submitted by Right Truth. It’s an interesting reflection on how many Jews of the Leftist persuasion are so tied the Leftist agenda that they embrace those who mean them no good and demonize someone who supports them on every occasion.
