The debate is firing up over a controversial seminar held at the State Capitol.
At that forum, Republican leaders warned that President Barack Obama is using mind control to manipulate all of us.
Republican leaders sat in on a four-hour seminar at the State Capitol recently, and it was all caught on tape.
The topic was Agenda 21, a highly controversial plan developed during the 80s that would allow the government to force people to move from the suburbs to the cities and use mind control to manipulate everything we do.
"They had a 4-hour meeting how the United Nations is using a mind control technique developed during the Cold War to secretly steal away Americans' freedoms," said Seth Clark of the political watchdog group Better Georgia.
Clark videotaped part of the briefing. He captured slides from the presentation comparing President Obama's record to that of Mao Zedong, a Chinese communist revolutionary, and Joseph Stalin, the one-time Communist leader of the Soviet Union.
"Usually, when you got somebody talking about mind control and all these problems with the United Nations, that person's wearing a tinfoil hat. I think the thing that concerns us is that the person wearing the tinfoil hat seems to be our senate majority leader," said Georgia Democratic Party Chairman Mike Berlon.
Berlon said he has no idea why Republican Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers sponsored the Agenda 21 seminar.
Rogers told CBS Atlanta News he agreed to hold the forum after a group of constituents requested more information on Agenda 21.
Better Georgia doesn't take political sides, but the activist group and Democrats said for the Republicans to hold the forum is not just offensive, but also a waste of tax dollars.
"I honestly don't think it's going to sit well with the people of Georgia. I think the response so far has proven that. They know this is a bunch of malarkey," said Clark.
"I'll be honest with you. The suggestion that the federal government is using mind control is just crazy," said Berlon.
