Am I the only one who finds it shameful that we didn’t see any nationwide “Justice for Kathryn Johnston” or “Justice for Cory Maye” rallies or prayer vigils right after they met their respective fates? Kathryn Johnston lost her life, and Cory Maye lost his freedom and his right of self-defense, but neither of them got the media attention Trayvon Martin did. I wonder why that is?
And cruising along the Facebooks yesterday, I came up on this little tidbit:
…all this case says to me is it’s OK to murder citizens if you have a permit/badge from the “state”, just say it was self defense even if you started it…. Just eat the food we give you, it does’t matter where it came from or what’s in it… All part of the same bullshit, Agenda 21 exactly…
So, yay, for paranoid fearmongering! (Later on in the thread were musings on GMOs and chemtrails. I shit you not.) But the Agenda 21 thing caught my eye, and so I went to Google. This is what I found (emphasis mine — ed.):
Agenda 21 is a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regard to sustainable development.
Plan of the United Nations. Surely I can’t be the only one who is greatly amused by those who think that anything created under the auspices of the United Nations would sanction ownership, let alone actual use, of firearms by anyone other than agents of the state. Does anyone besides me remember the shenanigans of Australia native Rebecca Peters in relation to the United Nations small arms conference in 2006? I don’t know how long the battles over this have been going on, but the United Nations has had the United States in its crosshairs for years over this issue. The laws they have in places like England and Australia are what they want for the entire world. And as badly as George Zimmerman fared in the media here, he really would have been screwed if the United Nations had anything to say about it. Seriously, people. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar…
