Secure Arkansas warns that a plan to create a historic district in Mountain View is a UN plot.
No joke. Here’s the link to Secure Arkansas, the anti-immigrant group that has expanded into a comprehensive search for black helicopter invasions of the Land of Opportunity. Says the headline:
Agenda 21 at the door of Mountain View
(Editor’s Note: Agenda 21 — for 21st Century — is a voluntary UN initiative to support sustainable development. Its imagined peril has been a rallying cry among the foil-helmet crowd in Arkansas against everything from voluntary stewardship of the White River to bike paths in Jonesboro. And now, there’s Mountain View.)
The problem: A historic district has been proposed for a portion of Mountain View. A public hearing is set Tuesday. Secure Arkansas is rallying its forces to kill it. You do wonder where Sen. Missy Irvin of Mountain View might be on this one. She went nearly bonkers over the White River Blueway. She’s repudiated earlier wobbliness on Obamacare. She has a Tea Party primary opponent. Will she don her foil hat for the meeting Tuesday?
Secure Arkansas never makes it clear why the UN is interested in a modest historic preservation effort in Mountain View, Arkansas. The town does a handsome tourism trade built around preserving old-school music with gatherings in the quaint downtown. But trust Secure Arkansas. They’re dead serious. If this isn’t stopped, they want the legislature to de-fund the Arkansas Heritage Department.
PS — But just to show you that you never know what the zanies at Secure Arkansas will be up to next, I also note the website includes an essay against nursing homes and others who’d try to unconstitutionally pass legislation to limit access to jury trial redress for victims of negligence (aka “tort reform“). The article on the website is written by Joey McCutcheon of Fort Smith, a trial lawyer. Somebody better tell Secure Arkansas that a black helicopter has landed in their own compound
