He's a Marxist! And I Still Can't Spell His Name!by
Cathie Adams, president of the far-right Texas Eagle Forum, has had more than four years to learn how to spell the name of the president of the United States and still can’t. She still seems more interested in making sure people know that his middle name is Hussein and that she thinks he’s a dirty ol’ MARXIST. From Adams’ front-page article in the group’s November Torch newsletter:
“President Barak Hussein Obama has failed America. His vision for our children and grandchildren is bleak because his worldview is Marxist. He wants to ‘fundamentally transform’ the U.S. socially, economically, and environmentally through global government regulations and control. It is his, and his fellow progressives’, utopian dream, rooted in Marx & Engels’ Communist Manifesto.”
Sigh. “Barak” isn’t a typo. She uses the same incorrect spelling for “Barack” again later in the same article.
Anyway, the rest of the article is a long screed attacking Agenda 21, a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations designed to promote sustainable development. Agenda 21 was adopted at the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. Adams claims Agenda 21 is “at the heart” of President Obama’s “worldview” 20 years later. And she thinks it will destroy “liberty, free markets and private property rights”:
“Agenda 21 is the blueprint for sustainable development. Sustainable development is Marxism dressed in a green façade, under the guise of protecting the environment. … Agenda 21’s sustainable development is anti-American.”
You can read the rest of Adams’ screed here (if you really want to). But it’s pretty much the standard anti-environment, anti-UN, whack-a-doodle nonsense we often hear from the far right. Still, after all these years, can’t Adams at least spell President Barack Obama’s name correctly?
