Georgia state Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers recently convened the Republican caucus at the Georgia State Capitol to discuss an alleged conspiracy between President Barack Obama, non-governmental organizations, state government entities and chambers of commerce to create a United Nations communist dictatorship.
Mother Jones' Tim Murphy on Wednesday reported that the meeting had included a presentation by Field Searcy, a conservative activist who was booted from the Georgia Tea Party over conspiracy theories about Obama's birth certificate and the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
The main focus of the event was something called Agenda 21, which conservatives warn is move towards dictatorship by "expanding public transportation routes and preserving open space as part of a United Nations-led conspiracy to deny property rights and herd citizens toward cities." Former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich even "explicitly repudiate[d] what Obama has done on Agenda 21" during a primary debate last year.
The meeting of Republican lawmakers in Georgia was held on Oct. 11, but Bryan Long of the progressive group Better Georgia told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that his group delayed release of the video because of media focus on the presidential campaign. Better Georgia was able to record about 52 minutes of video before being escorted from the building.
The event also included Fox News contributor Dick Morris, who cautioned lawmakers that Obama would "force everyone into the cities from whence our ancestors fled."
"Our own governments are doing this," Searcy said of the Agenda 21 "conspiracy to transform America from the land of the free, to the land of the collective."
Searcy explained that the government was using "a process known as the Delphi technique" to convince suburbanites to move into the inner cities.
"The Delphi technique was developed by the Rand Corporation during the Cold War as a mind-control technique," the conservative activist insisted. "It's also known as 'consensive process.' But basically the goal of the Delphi technique is to lead a targeted group of people to a pre-determined outcome while keeping the illusion of being open to public input."
One slide presented at the meeting compared Obama's alleged plot to "Stalin's Five Year Plan" and "Mao Tse Tung's Great Leap Forward."
Georgia Senate Majority Leader Rogers introduced legislation in January to recognize "the destructive and insidious nature of the United Nations Agenda 21."
That bill stated that "according to the United Nations Agenda 21 policy, social justice is described as the right and opportunity of all people to benefit equally from the resources afforded by society and the environment which would be accomplished by socialists and communist redistribution of wealth."
