It’s been almost 72 hours since I wrote about a teabagger doing something idiotic. It’s not for lack of material, it’s just I like to find the cream of the crop.
Enter Dan Maes, running for Governor of Colorado, described as a “tea party favorite.”
It turns out that his likely opponent in the general election, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, has been secretly working to turn Denver over to the U.N. by creating a bike sharing program!!!1!!
Sure, Denver signed up with the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives in order to share ideas on making the city greener with other municipalities more than a decade before Hickenlooper became mayor… but that’s just how diabolical his plan is.
And while their website mentions that the ICLEI was formed during a meeting at the United Nations, they’ve carefully hidden any current association they have with the nefarious U.N. But Maes knows better. He’s done the research! He knows!
The U.N.’s true plans were so well hidden that Maes himself didn’t realize the danger at first:
…I thought, ‘Gosh, public transportation, what’s wrong with that, and what’s wrong with people parking their cars and riding their bikes? And what’s wrong with incentives for green cars?’ But if you do your homework and research, you realize ICLEI is part of a greater strategy to rein in American cities under a United Nations treaty.
And destroy your reusable shopping bags, people. That’s how they get you!
