Like ships to a navy, the racist tag is a basic weapon of the American left.
In today’s Washington Post article attempting to defuse the specter of the United Nations’ Agenda 21 over a land use/climate change controversy in the Virginia Tidewater region, the Post implicitly labels Agenda 21 opponents as racists:
… The ultra-conservative John Birch Society cautions adherents through its Web site that the “Agenda 21 program may already be in your local community, through your home town or city’s membership in . . . Local Governments for Sustainability”…
Though the JBS has never been a racist group, “racist” is the left’s favorite smear of the group. So the take-home message for the casual reader is that racists oppose Agenda 21 — that is, according to the Post, if Agenda 21 even exists.
