CO Candidate: Bike Programs Part of UN One-World Conspiracy


Here’s a point of opposition that I’ve never seen before: A Republican candidate for governor in Colorado claims that bike-boosting policies advocated by Denver’s mayor are “converting Denver into a United Nations community.”

This isn’t from some Interweb humor site – it’s from the Denver Post!

Apparently, the new bike-sharing program in Denver (which is not dissimilar to Minneapolis’ Nice Ride program, as I understand it), puts the environment above the rights of citizens. Apparently this is based on Denver’s membership in the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, an international association that promotes sustainable development.

Somehow, promoting environmentally-friendly initiatives that are also favored by ICLEI ties US cities closer to the UN, and sacrifices US citizen rights and sovereignty to the UN.

Uh. Whatever?
