Promoting bicycling may sound like a straightforward common-sense idea that could result in less air pollution and an increase in physical fitness, but what if it was actually a well-disguised cover for a United Nations (UN) plot to rob Americans of their personal freedom? That's apparently what Tea Party Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes thinks.

Locked in political battle with the Mayor of Denver John Hickenlooper (if that really is his name) for the "top dog" job in Colorado, Maes has publicly raised his eyebrows at his opponent's support for cycling. If, on the surface, that sounds a little bizarre, consider that the city of Denver became a member of the UN-linked sustainability-promoting International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) back in 1992. Also bear in mind that ICLEI (pronounced icky-lay) is in favor of programs like Denver's B-Cycle bike-sharing project. Clearly, anything that involves the UN is cause for alarm and Hickenlooper, who recently praised the program, is quite possibly a Manchurian candidate for the global elitist. Perhaps Maes summed up his views best when he said,
"At first, I thought, 'Gosh, public transportation, what's wrong with that, and what's wrong with people parking their cars and riding their bikes? And what's wrong with incentives for green cars?' But if you do your homework and research, you realize ICLEI is part of a greater strategy to rein in American cities under a United Nations treaty,"
Hit the jump for video from conspiracy theorists showing Chris Matthews commenting on this situation in a way that makes it obvious to anyone that's done their homework and research that this MSM talking head is totally trying to make Dan Maes seem like a kook. Please Colorado, vote wisely.
