Agenda 21 Alert: Glenn Beck’s Words to Watch

Be afraid.

Sure, we know the movement for “sustainable” transportation and development is a front for Agenda 21, a.k.a. The UN Plot to End Private Property in the United States. But what to do?

As with any battle, the first step is identifying the enemy. Fortunately (and none too soon), Glenn Beck has published a “comprehensive list of key words and phrases that are often used at the local level when discussing Agenda 21 related initiatives.”

You no doubt know the biggies like “Climate Change,” “Global Warming,” and “Prosperity.”  Here are less obvious dog-whistle terms to listen for at your next “town council” or “planning commission” meeting:

Greenways, High Speed Rail, Land Use Policies, Livable communities, Livable Communities, Local, Metropolitan Planning Organizations (this one is also kind of a biggie, actually), Mixed Use Development, Multi-Use Dwellings, Open Space, Parking Policy, Regional, Resilient Cities, Responsible development, Safe Routes to Schools (!!), Smart growth, Sustainable development, Traffic calming, Transit Oriented Development (TOD), Transportation Justice, Vehicle Mileage Traveled Tax, Vibrant Neighborhoods, Vision, Walkable Communities

Other watchwords include “Choice,” “Communities,” “Consensus,” “Fair,” and “Common good.”

Above all, remember this: If you are in a “public meeting” or “public forum” and you hear the word “Outcomes,” resist! Scream and shout and don’t let up until the UN agents abandon their plot!

Click through for brother Glenn’s complete list, and be sure to buy his new book — essential reading to thwart responsible, vibrant tyranny!

Yesterday, we couldn’t help poking fun at Glenn Beck’s red alert about the words he associates with an imaginary UN plot to take away our cars and our freedoms. But it gets better: Everyone’s favorite conspiracy-monger is touting his newest project — a “city-theme park hybrid” called Independence, USA that in some ways bears a shocking resemblance […]

Setting the Agenda on Pedestrian Safety

|
On the evening of Saturday, January 10, 2004, Peter Hornbeck, 26, stepped off the curb at Park Avenue and 96th Street and was struck by a Chevy Suburban traveling 74 miles per hour. The SUV, being driven by a 26-year-old man from Queens who had had his license revoked years earlier, dragged Hornbeck for a block as Hornbeck’s friends cried out in […]

Caption Contest: Anthony Weiner on a Citi Bike

I don’t care if this is a carefully choreographed photo op. For one day, at least, we’re not going to run a picture of the Weinermobile in a post about Anthony Weiner. We’re just going to link back to the most recent post with a Weinermobile picture. And we’re going to turn this into a […]
