Sometimes, we must look back in order to see where we’re going. In the past 100 years, America has experienced a great deal of cultural upheaval. In the 1950s our children grew up watching “Leave it to Beaver,” and “Father Knows Best.” Today our kids are fed a constant diet of sex, violence, and self-absorption via programs such as “18 & Pregnant,” and “South Park,” just to name a few. Although the typical liberal doesn’t believe in the concept of “trickle down economics,” perhaps some of them will concede that personal lifestyle choices can directly result from the examples set by powerful leaders across the country. When President Obama was asked about American exceptionalism at a NATO conference in 2009, here’s what he had to say.
Although many Americans were shocked by this response, it really shouldn’t have surprised anyone. The groundwork for this type of thought process was laid many years ago.
The idea that America is an exceptional country is at the very heart of the divide between the left and right. In fact, the left not only believes we’re not exceptional, they believe America is downright evil, and we see the evidence all around us.
Who’s burning and standing on American flags? Who believes that our police officers are “systematically” racist? Who thinks that America needs to be “fundamentally transformed?” As a side note, you don’t fundamentally transform something you truly love (just saying). But to really understand where this anti-American thought process comes from, we need look no further than Agenda 21.
Agenda 21 is the brainchild of the United Nations, and was signed by then President George H.W. Bush in 1992 while attending the climate convention in Rio de Janeiro. The 41st President told the American people, “The United States fully intends to be the world’s preeminent leader in protecting the global environment. We have been that for many years. We will remain so.”
Apparently the leader of the free world failed to realize the purpose of the program. Agenda 21 was designed to remove the United States as the leader of…..well….anything. This is all about a “one world order,” nothing more, and nothing less. You simply can’t have a one world order if Americans keep going around thinking they’re exceptional!
Here’s a key excerpt from the official United Nations Agenda 21 directive:
“Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.”
A profound “reorientation” of all human society? Now that’s weird, it almost sounds like a fundamental transformation, doesn’t it?
The biggest obstacle facing those who truly wish to change America are the American people. Unfortunately for those wishing to advance the agenda, there are still far too many of us who believe that America is indeed exceptional. As long as there are more of us than there are of them….well….you know.
