1/15/2014: At a Montgomery County GOP event, Iowa state Sen. Joni Ernst fervently warns of the United Nations Agenda 21 conspiracy to take away Americans' rights.
Note: the United Nations has not actually imposed anything on Americans.
Q: 20 years ago, the general assembly of the United Nations met in South America and 178 world leaders signed this document that has come to be known as Agenda 21. How do you view Agenda 21, and do you believe it would not be beneficial to the United States? If the latter, as U.S. Senator, how would you extricate the US from this agenda?
ERNST: I don't support Agenda 21, and no, I don't believe it is good for America. I don't believe it is good for Iowans. The United Nations has imposed this upon us, and as a U.S. senator, I would say, ‘No more. No more Agenda 21.’ Community planning — to the effect that it is implementing eminent domain and taking away property rights away from individuals — I don’t agree with that. And especially in a place such as Iowa, where we rely heavily upon our agricultural community, our rural communities. We don’t want to see things like eminent domain come into play.
We don’t want to see a further push with Agenda 21, where the Agenda 21 and the government telling us that these are the urban centers that you will live in; these are the ways that you will travel to other urban centers. Agenda 21 encompasses so many different aspects of our lives that it’s taking away our individual liberties, our freedoms as United States citizens. So I would adamantly oppose Agenda 21. I don’t believe it is responsible, not for United States citizens. Thank you very much.
