Agenda 21 now officially opposed by RNC

Somehow I missed this:

The G.O.P. platform approved Tuesday in Florida included tough language on many expected issues like abortion, but also takes a stand on an issue that has historically been out of the party’s mainstream: Agenda 21.

“We strongly reject the U.N. Agenda 21 as erosive of American sovereignty, and we oppose any form of U.N. Global Tax,” the platform reads.

As I said when I looked at agenda 21 before, yowza. This is full on crazy:

What are the dark threats that lurk just over the picket fence? One website called Democrats Against UN Agenda 21 lists them: “redevelopment projects, bicycle boulevards, neighborhood summits, neighborhood elections, neighborhood revitalization projects, neighborhood stabilization projects, visioning, local boards, smart growth projects . . . ” and more. These are code words, opponents say, for the erosion of personal liberty. Smart electric and gas meters, in this view, are a government ruse to spy on citizens, and the first step toward “the elimination of national sovereignty and the creation of a seamless system for global governance.”

and it’s now part of the official position of the national Republican party.
