You know who ELSE liked bicycles?Dan Maes is in a tough spot! He’s running for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in Colorado against a known plagiarist, and if he wins the primary he’ll just have to take on Tom Tancredo and the awesomely named “Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper.” How do you set yourself apart in that sort of field? Hmm, “Declare that bike-sharing programs are part of a United Nations takeover plot”? Sure, that’ll do!

Dan Maes is pulling ahead in the polling for the primary, now that it has been revealed that his opponent plagiarizes all the time! He is the “Tea Party” favorite in this race, which means that obviously he is a lunatic. He gave a speech in which he said that Hickenlooper was “converting Denver into a United Nations community” and that “this is all very well-disguised, but it will be exposed.” Later, a reporter asked him to clarify this paranoid nonsense:

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.

“These aren’t just warm, fuzzy ideas from the mayor. These are very specific strategies that are dictated to us by this United Nations program that mayors have signed on to.”

“This United Nations program” is, apparently, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, a group that was started at some United Nations conference in 1990 and now helps “share best practices” about progressive urban governance — encouraging bicycling use, improving transit, rounding up gun owners and evangelicals and putting them into camps, that sort of thing. Fortunately, once Maes is governor, every single bicycle lane in Denver will be eliminated to accommodate the coming wave of wider SUVs, and transit pass holders will be given dune buggies.

    It’s all true! My city recently started a bike sharing program. At first it seems nice, you ride around a little, it’s fun… then gradually you notice you’ve lost all your cushy white flab, it’s been days since you’ve participated in the Two Minute Hate with Michael Savage, you’re beginning to have something resembling self-respect, and you’re not totally sure that “Drill baby drill” is a well-thought out plan. Yes, bike-sharing is like a gateway drug … to pure pinko communism.

    Colorado is also consistently ranked as the number one, most fit state in the country with the lowest rates of morbid obesity. This is due, of course, to their bike riding and tree hugging and health food (some of it organic) eating. Teabaggers, your mission is clear. Turn this hell hole into the America we all can recognize. Elect Dan Maes!

  • Pithaughn

    In other bike news, Lance Armstrong and our current guv (who rides so much he crashed in a pre dawn race a few months back) just announced today that next year there will be professional stage bike race in Colorado just like the old Red Zinger aka Coors Classic. Bikes win, tea party whackos just continue to whack or something, still not sure what they really have plans for other than unseating the democratically, republic’s elected current government officials (who are not white) .

    Laugh all you want libtards, but the bicycle was the favorite weapon of choice for the Nazis and the Soviets in WW2. Bet you never heard of the Nazi Tiger and Panther bikes, or the heavy Soviet T-34. So ignorant.

    Well, I remember a song that referenced bicycle armies and it mentioned Fidel Castro, too, so there you go–COMMUNISM! Plus it was sung by Urge Overkill, which sometimes goes by “UO” which is also the monogram for the U. of Oregon, which is a KNOWN HOTBED of homosexuals, vegans and internationalists, so there you go–DOUBLE COMMUNISM!!

    Can we bring back a bit of prequal to the vote? No, not literacy tests from the south, but IQ tests. And by IQ, not the silly intelligent quotient ones but IDIOT QUOTIENT. Have to pass the same test to run.

    David Stockman, Ronnie’s first director of the Oriface of Management and Budget – the infamous OMB ran a piece in the Timez on Sunday lamenting the lack of any Repubtard candidates who had the brains to pour piss out of a boot with instructions on the heel. Basically crying that rational, moderate Repubtards are extinct, and the sole intelligent function of the current crop of Repubtards is providing one-liners for the entertainment of leftwing bloggers like the Wonketeers.


  • a_pink_poodle

    Well it’s quite obvious! Why we just have to look at 1930’S GERMANY to see that the rise of Obama bin Hitler and IslamoNAZISM was started with the introduction of bicycle lanes!

  • One Yield Regular

    Good thing for this guy he isn’t running for Mayor of San Francisco. I mean, cyclists here flood the streets, paralyze traffic, and physically assault automobiles simply because it’s FRIDAY, so who knows what they’d do in response to this kind of bike-hostile rhetoric.

    [re=632155]JMP[/re]: “Although sadly their hatred of birth control and abortion rights means they’re still outbreeding us.” True. But these kids, even their kids, aren’t as stupid as their parents. They’re more tolerant and open-minded despite their doofy/douchey parents (e.g. even the younger version of abstinence includes the buttsecks and stuff!) so there’s hope.

    I remember the free community bikes in Boulder and can’t imagine a better poster child if the GOP wanted to show that the socializm just donna work.

    [re=632376]Malketeer[/re]: Here in SOCIALIST CANADA, though, the bikes are sponsored by private industry (an evil mining corporation, which Colorado surely has many of!) in collaboration with the government, and you still have to pay to ride them; and the program is making a *profit*, which should please these free-market assholes.

    You don’t even have to RIDE the bikes. Just being seen in the company of a bike rider should be enough to brand you a “fellow traveler.” It’s couldn’t be clearer. What COLOR are the bikes? They’re red, you Commie. RED.

    Last week London got its own shared bicyle scheme. At the launch, Conservative mayor Boris Johnson described it as “a gigantic communist experiment”, so maybe Mr Maes is onto something.

    Mind you, the London scheme is sponsored by Barclays Bank, who aren’t known for their communist views.

    BUT the bikes are mostly blue, which is THE SAME COLOR AS UN HELMETS!!!!!

  • Herman the German

    There are lots of indications that physical activity like cycling is good for the brain. So cycling lanes are obviously a UN conspirition to destroy American conservativism by making people more intelligent.
