    And the alternate reality keeps truckin’ on just like nothing at all happened last Tuesday.

    • TacoChuck says:

      The funnier part to me is, literally every item listed under the Obama plan is a scheme to funnel money to corporations, and are not “socialist” or “communist” in any way, shape or form.

      • wysinwyg says:

         Well, it’s technically socialist under some definitions of “socialist”.  Ask a libertarian.  But you’re right that it’s not what most people who call themselves “socialists” have in mind.

          • wysinwyg says:

             Very interesting, thanks.  Though I’ll probably keep using the common usage of the term and just call anarchists “anarchists” so that people will actually understand what the hell I’m talking about.

        • libertarianism is just anarchy for the rich.

          • wysinwyg says:

             If only.  Libertarians are dead-set against “force” — as long as they get to define what “force” means.  Starving people or making them homeless aren’t considered “force” by libertarians.  As a result, a libertarian who would insist that taxation is theft would have no ethical problems getting what they want by denying food and shelter to those who need it.  So it’s not a way to dismantle hierarchies (if it was it would be anarchism), but a way to enforce them on terms even more favorable to the very rich than rule of law already is. 

            Feudalism in other words.

    Please, please, PLEASE, my tea party friends and relatives, keep drinking the Koolaid! The wackier tea partiers get the more people see how truly nuts they are. I’m bummed Michelle Bachmann is back in but in a way, we need to her to fly the crazy flag.

    • acerplatanoides says:

      I think it’s best to just feed them. Tell them they’re right about you. They’ll tire out by nap time.

    •  NO. We don’t need Bachmann.

      It is really sad that this whole country has  an “us vs. them” mindset, with the batshit crazies getting all the attention.

      What we really need is moderate republicans AND democrats who can actually AGREE on things sometimes and actually get things done!

  3. ChicagoD says:

    “Expand markets for agriculture”

    My God, the man has no morals. Now I see that he *is* a “Socialist.” They’re ALWAYS talking about “expanding markets.”

    Sheesh.

  4. Boundegar says:

    Not only will suburbanites be forcibly relocated to cities, they will also be made to watch BET.

  5. Lars Olsson says:

    Cripes. Why is it always MY state? 

    These guys hail from a party which is frequently said to be led by a guy with a three-hour radio show whose followers call themselves “dittoheads,” and they’re worried about Obama’s mind-control/brainwashing?

  6. EH says:

    Crazy crackers.

  7. Jake0748 says:

    Thanks for the heads-up Tea Party!  Now… where did I leave my tinfoil hat…?

  8. xzzy says:

    Something like 2.5 million people die in the US every year, giving us a rough total of 12.5 million people that have died while Obama has been in office.

    As we’ve been in a recession for most of Obama’s term in office, I think it’s safe to conclude that all of those deaths were caused by starvation due to people being unable to find work.

    Basically, Obama is worse than Stalin. He’s done NOTHING to keep people from dying.

    • morcheeba says:

      I literally can’t name a single person he has administered CPR to…

    • Origami_Isopod says:

      Something like 2.5 million people die in the US every year, giving us a rough total of 12.5 million people that have died while Obama has been in office.

      Apropos of nothing, anyone else remember “Bill Clinton’s Dead Friends,” the email (or Xerox for the teabagger set) that went around in the late ’90s?

  9. archanoid says:

    WTF is wrong with some people…

  10. vonbobo says:

    seriously? there are so many things to be critical of Obama, why the heck does someone need to go to these lengths?
    Sad

    • acerplatanoides says:

      If I got rewarded for talking crap*, I’d talk a lot of crap.

      * – without saying the n word

    • IconoclastTwo says:

       I was thinking the same thing; with all of the things that Obama is actually doing wrong, why does it seem like in my lifetime I’ll never see the Republicans actually criticizing any of them instead of crackpot insanity like this?

  11. Sarge Misfit says:

    hmmmm …. “stripped landowners of property” … isn’t that a bank foreclosure?

    “centrally control agriculture” …. I don’t know, I keep hearing the name Monsanto alot …

    • heph says:

      Oh no thats different! That totally legal Raptor capitalism where nature and well being of people are exploited to further Monsantos plans to monopolize the “market”.

  12. IamInnocent says:

    A comparison which shows how much O. has nothing in common with either of the two above him still proves… what?

    • Snig says:

      It proves he’s stealthy and devious!  The total absence of evidence revealing a hint of his plans just shows how deep and far ranging the conspiracy must be in order for it to have been undetected for this long. Don’t fall for it, Sheeples!

  13. Gerdehmit Oberma, we worked really hard to scare those fascist straights from the city now you want to bring them back!?!
    This is a traversty. A TRAVERSTY.

  14. Tea Partiers don’t understand that “One of these things is not like the other” always includes 4 different items for comparison?

    No surprises they supported Willard Mittens “I hate Sesame Street” Romneyshambles the VIIIth.

  15. malgrep says:

    Why did I move back to this state, and why have I not left yet?

  16. Michael Langford says:

    As a Georgian: I request you send kudos for distilling and concentrating the weird stupid right fringe for the rest of you all, and sucking it up into one state.

  17. UncaScrooge says:

    I call shenanigans here: A true tea party patriot doesn’t actually know anything about historical communist plans and policies. Knowing what comprises Stalin’s Five Year Plan simply taints your intellect with communism. This meeting is obviously an attempt by the communist party to impart communist-tainted “knowledge” into the sturdy skulls of right-wing coffee clutches. I weep for our country.

  18. Rob says:

    Every once in a while, they take crazy to a whole new level.. it transcends partisan political conspiracy theories and becomes a sublime expression of something new…

    This is like the scene from a John Woo film… where everyone has infinite bullets, gallons of blood, and all the explosions have white doves instead of shrapnel…except political, and involving party leaders.

    I have to say I love it. I want it made into a movie, where Obama’s preserved zombie head strides around on a robot body made entirely of the bones of old people he’s put to death in his Obamacare Camps, wherein he both impregnates screaming white women and aborts their fetuses in one deft move.

    Wherever he goes a fog composed of the ashes of rich people’s stolen money and burnt bible pages rises up to obscure the world in a Obama made hellscape…

    There will have to be lots of minorities too. It will be epic..

  19. bo1n6bo1n6 says:

    Modern McCarthyism… I’m sick of this.  A witch hunt to find the bad guy that leads right back to your front door. 

  20. Dimmer says:

    Gotta say Stalin did a nice job there, doing a five year plan in two years.

    (And, less snarkily, can we add “Defeated the Nazis” in his plus column?

  21. SomeGuyNamedMark says:

    They were all in one room and not one drone plane was nearby?

  22. creesto says:

    Finally! I’ve been dogging UN takeover comments online for months now, but now there is finally a handle to hang on all of it: Agenda 21.

  23. David says:

    I grew up hearing my step-dad and his crazy brothers spouting this one government agenda crap (the U.N. is just the first step!). This garbage goes back to at least the early 1900s. The Tea Party’s thoughts are nothing new here. Sadly I kinda supported the Tea Party when they were still nebulous & unformed. They had decent ideals. Until they got on the fast train to crazy town.

  24. GyroMagician says:

    So the Tea Party are crazy.We all know they’re crazy. It would be hard not to notice. So how is it they have a place in mainstream political discussion? Who actually supports them? I really don’t get it.

  25. Lupus_Yonderboy says:

    All right, I hate Stalin just as much as anyone else (raised in the US in the ’80s, I should say) but can we all just come together and admit that that man had an awesome moustache?  Damn, Unca Joe, that is one hell of a caterpillar.

  26. Cowicide says:

    The GOP, by and large, is insane.  Remember that next time you miss the opportunity to vote out someone in Congress and then wonder why things are going so badly in the USA.

  27. intheshadowofleaves says:

    It’s times like this that I wonder why I left the safe and relatively sane confines of the northeast and moved to this dumb, shitkicker state.

  28. Dave says:

    So – if I were to use their terrible logic back at them, it might go something like…

    “You know who else was born in Georgia?”

    PAPA JOE STALIN! 
    ERGO:YOU BUNCHA COMMIES!

    • acerplatanoides says:

       Maybe when they look at a map they see Georgia surrounded by former soviet nations. It would explain the panic in their eyes.

  29. Here’s the thing: Obama’s regional rural plan will probably lead to bad stuff, as it is in all probability simply another way of integrating (to an even greater degree) rural economies to the corporate capitalist world system. Nothing conspiratorial in that, mind you- since the early nineteenth century systems of state and capital have been using a wide range of ‘public-private’ (the current euphemism) to bring marginal communities, markets, natural resource reserves, and so on, into the full capitalist system.

    Obama’s policies are corporatist (like pretty much every POTUS before him to lesser and greater degrees), which is to say, capitalist- the rise and expansion of capitalism (be it ‘private’ or fully state-run as in the USSR) has always depended upon state intervention and support. Rural economies are brought to heel, either slowly and quasi-voluntarily, or through the deployment of direct, violent force (think past and current ‘land grabs’ and enclosure movements).

    The Tea Party, then, is on the right track, sort of, in being suspicious of these things. They go off kilter, however, in imagining some sort of sinister secret agenda and God knows what else being planned, when in fact the processes by which states forcibly and implicitly expand centralized capitalism are neither hidden nor mysterious. They aren’t advertised, though they could and should be. I think that many people in the Tea Party, like many people in liberal movements, have their hearts in the right place- a mistrust of centralized power, a desire for greater liberty and autonomy, a love of local communities and place, and so on. There’s a lot of false consciousness and downright craziness mixed in there, on both sides mind you.

    • Boundegar says:

      Also, they have noticed that the President is black.

      •  Sure, some Tea Partiers are driven by overt or residual racism. But it would be simply reductive to attribute everything to that, or to imply that every Tea Partier is just an embittered racist or is only driven by a fear of people of color. That would be like suggesting that the only reason people in the Middle East support Islamist or other radical movements is because they hate infidels or something, when in fact all sorts of sentiments and ideas are driving such movements, from socio-economic concerns to religious to the flatly xenophobic.

        I’m not say most, or any, Tea Partiers are going to come out swinging against the forces of global capital or against the police state. I’m saying that some of their sentiments point in such a direction, and that with dialogue and education, some such folks can drop the kookiness and false consciousness and move in a more positive and constructive direction, alongside other people from across the political spectrum.

        This has already happened, I might add, in some particular situations. Tea Party types came together with radical greens, civil libertarians, and other to defeat a recent proposition in Atlanta that would have looted taxpayers to line corporate pockets and wreak environmental and social destruction. Likewise, some of the opponents of the Keystone pipeline have come from Tea Party or Tea Party-like ranks. So it has happened on a limited scale, and can happen on a larger one. Or at least I hope so.

        Which means his dick is bigger than theirs. Never overlook the psychosexual roots of angry  Southern racism.

  30. Rob Stevens says:

    And yet again, I am so embarrassed to be living in the screwed-up state of GA.

    • Christopher says:

      Even though I know nothing else about you I feel pretty confident in saying that your embarrassment is evidence that not all Georgians are loony, and that there is still hope for your state.

      And I hope everyone recognizes that a state that has produced R.E.M., the B-52′s, and Terrapin Brewing, just to name a few of the good things to come out of Georgia, must be doing some things right.

  31. buddy66 says:

    These paranoids are pikers. I much prefer the cuckoos of fifty years ago who warned of the Red Chinese army training in Baja.

  32. Syn - says:

    Somebody needs to worry about the onion writers, if this goes on, no one will need them anymore!

  33. webstu says:

    Laugh it up.  In my state, there are rumors of military exercises being planned to support a military coup and/or resist an unspecified “takeover” by the Obama administration.  

    Serious as a heart attack.

    ObSF: “What Song the Sirens Sang” by Charles Sheffield.

    By strange coincidence, the story was set in Georgia …

  35. efergus3 says:

    Okay, children, take notes. This WILL be on the final. THIS is why you do NOT use Meth. It will destroy your brain and turn you into a Georgia politician.

  36. Steve Miller says:

    Mandatory contraception for Georgia politicians sounds like a fine idea.

  37. peregrinus says:

    Oh dear.  Here in Blighty we were confident Obama was a decent fellow.  Now this – good Lord, what terrifying ambitions he has.  Perhaps we should back the other chap - 

    What was his name again??

  38. egriff5514 says:

    Just to say ‘Agenda 21′ is becoming another successful US export… now showing up in UK blog/newspaper comments on wind farms/climate change.

    It joins previous successes ‘Chem Trails’ and ‘Morgellons’.

    Please, please stop inventing this stuff!

  39. Tea Partiers are like 12 year-old boys. For everyone you add to the group the collective IQ drops by five points. (Kudos to Dave Barry)

  40. DJBudSonic says:

    This talk of Agenda 21 stuff would seem crazy, were it not for the fact that it is a real UN document, and that many of the things that are supposed to be done to conform to the documents goals are being done, at the local, state and federal level. Many of the goals do seem to go just beyond the development of a sustainable planet, favoring government/corporate control over essential goods and services, as opposed to human rights and reasonable freedom of choice.  Especially worrisome are the sections on food and water, which Boing Boing has covered in the past:  the seemingly odd reaction of local governments to front yard gardens, for example. Similar restrictions on food self-reliance are part of Agenda 21 documents.

  41. Frank Diekman says:

    Soooo…Based on the graphic, they’re implying that Obama is a communist dictator because he’s doing things that are completely different from what past communist dictators did?
