Tennessee Lawmakers Pass Resolution Blasting UN Agenda 21

Legislation attacking the United Nations’ “Agenda 21” agreement as a radical socialist plot at odds with American liberty and values was approved overwhelmingly by members of the Tennessee House of Representatives last Wednesday, sparking some criticism by far-left activists but widespread praise by conservative groups and Tea Party organizations across the nation.

 

Legislation attacking the United Nations’ “Agenda 21” agreement as a radical socialist plot at odds with American liberty and values was approved overwhelmingly by members of the Tennessee House of Representatives last Wednesday, sparking some criticism by far-left activists but widespread praise by conservative groups and Tea Party organizations across the nation.

The non-binding measure, House Joint Resolution 587, recognizes the “destructive and insidious nature” of the controversial UN scheme — “a comprehensive plan of extreme environmentalism, social engineering, and global political control.” The bill easily sailed through the House on March 15 with 72 votes in favor, including at least six Democrats, and 23 votes against.
 
“I think this planet carries me and the eight billion people that are here right now, just fine. And what these individuals want to do, they want to cap the number of people that this planet can have," noted bill supporter Republican state Rep. Glen Casada, citing China’s barbaric “one-child” policy and its enforcement through forced abortions as among the many reasons why the UN plot to limit population is dangerous.
 
“It is insidious and it should scare you if you love freedom,” Rep. Casada warned. “I’m sorry, but humans are not enemies to the planet. We need to be creating more energy, not consuming less.”
 
The efforts by Tennessee lawmakers follow a growing tsunami of awareness and outrage all across America about the highly controversial global agenda adopted in 1992. According to experts, other legislative bodies, and even official UN Agenda 21 documents, the worldwide scheme aims to foist so-called “sustainable development” on the people of the world.
