Sherry Breedlove said the 21-point plan entails paying people “big money” to be “facilitators,” who go into communities and give citizens only partial information “so they don’t know it’s part of Agenda 21.”
The facilitators, who tell residents they will put in a park or build government housing, use such lines as “let me build you a dream home,” she said.
But those who agree to the program give up private property rights, Mrs. Breedlove warned.
“The government will own your land,” she said.
And Agenda 21 supporters are focusing on America because they want “to pull us down to the level of all the other countries,” she said.
Mrs. Breedlove, a member of the Cherokee Rose club, quoted one source as saying the plan would require a “profound reorientation” of human society, unlike any before. Agenda 21 would establish “community rights,” allowing control of the individual for society’s “greater good,” she said.
Community residents are told the plan will take care of “three E’s”—equity, environment, and economy, the speaker asserted. Funded by wealthy people, the program is “picking on” communities of under 1,500 population, and “the grants are going out by the hundreds” for Agenda 21, she said.
Residents are told that “everything’s going to be right here in our community” and “it sounds really good,” she said. They are even told they’ll have no need for a car, Mrs. Breedlove said.
But those who accept Agenda 21 must “submit to the conclusions of a non-elected regional authority,” she warned.
In Elgin, just east of Austin, the populace was “totally duped” by the agenda, which the U.N. put forth for “sustainable development,” she said.
Such groups as the Rockefeller Foundation, Pew Trust, Turner Foundation (of Cable News Network founder Ted Turner), and liberal billionaire George Soros are involved in the plan, as is a certain major corporation, she said.
In addition, it is supported by the Sierra Club, National Teachers Assn., U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the U.S. Farm Bureau help fund, she said.
(Among other controversial parts of Agenda 21, which she did not address, are using the measure as an “end-run” to establish gun control in the U.S. through international treaty, based only on the signature of the President, not through a Constitutional amendment.—Editor)
