Judy Burges, Republican State Senator, Claims Agenda 21 Will Turn Arizona Into Commie-Land
|State Senator Judy Burges explains a lot of things she doesn't know much about.|
Yes, Republican state Senator Judy Burges is still trying to warn everyone that the United Nations is trying to turn Arizona into a land of communism like Brazil, which Burges insists is a communist nation, for some reason.
So, yesterday's hearing provided the perfect example of why people think Arizona's Legislature is a total nuthouse.
Burges' Senate Bill 1403 mandates that "the state of Arizona and all political subdivisions of this state shall not adopt or implement the creed, doctrine, principles or any tenet of the United Nations Rio Declaration on Environment and Development and the Statement of Principles for Sustainable Development adopted at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in June, 1992..."
What's wrong with this declaration, which Burges says "sounds absolutely wonderful on face value"?
Well, it's "sinister and dark," according to Burges. It says "people should be rounded up" and removed from land they own, it calls for a "redistribution of wealth," "will destroy Arizona business," and "control every aspect of our lives," Burges said in the committee hearing.
"I don't know what you call that, but I certainly call it communism," she said.
Believe it or not, most people would call it a conspiracy theory, and it's the second time this bill has been proposed in Arizona. It passed the Senate last time around, but was held in the House.
Now, Burges claims all this stuff is going on in Brazil, which she called a communist country where 7,500 people just had their homes bulldozed for no reason, and are now homeless.
You'll never believe this, but not only is Brazil not a communist country, the one and only source on the Internet of 7,500 newly homeless Brazilians is from the conspiracy-theory website, World Net Daily -- which cites "sources" in Brazil for its story.
Yet, somehow, people believe Burges is on the right track. As you can hear in the video of the meeting, people gave Burges a round of applause for spouting off her conspiracy theories.
