Sorry people, but Republican Gubernatorial candiate Dan Maes of Colorado was right. The bicycle is a Trojan horse that will destroy American values and society.
"This is all very well-disguised, but it will be exposed," Maes told about 50 supporters who showed up at a campaign rally last week in Centennial.
Maes said in a later interview that he once thought the mayor's efforts to promote cycling and other environmental initiatives were harmless and well-meaning. Now he realizes "that's exactly the attitude they want you to have."
"This is bigger than it looks like on the surface, and it could threaten our personal freedoms," Maes said.
Here's the proof.
There is no escape.
The funny thing is that if you google Dan Maes the 4th link is to The Craziest Republican of the Day - Dan Maes. And many links on the first page of the search are about his wacko comments. Gaffes are punished on the internet these days. That's why this blogpost and others like it should be re-linked, re-tweeted, facebooked, you name it.
And here's the piece duh lah resistance. A United Nations (un-American) stamp celebrating the Womens Decade (un-American) on a stamp featuring a bicycle (un-American). And this one is real.
I was inspired by Cyclelicio.us' post about the same Dan Maes: Red Bikes, Red Dawn. Here's a great gallery for Soviet posters.
