Is Colorado Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes an avid follower of Alex Jones and Prisonplanet.com?

From the AP today:
DENVER — Colorado Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes says a Denver bike-sharing program could threaten residents` “personal freedoms” because it is part of an attempt to control U.S. cities.
Maes said last week that an international environmental group that promotes Denver`s B-Cycle program is part of a “greater strategy to rein in American cities under a United Nations treaty.”
As part of the B-Cycle program, 400 bicycles are available at numerous stations in Denver for people to use for a daily or monthly fee.
“This is bigger than it looks like on the surface, and it could threaten our personal freedoms,” Maes was quoted in the Denver Post as saying.
He apparently sees a dark conspiracy between Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper (who is running for governor), the United Nations, and an evil outfit called “ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability,” which brings 1,200 cities around the world to share information on creating more sustainable, livable communities. (THE HORROR!)
Whenever I read about something like this, I am reminded of a wonderful character in a movie who started out sounding reasonable with his views but then we saw how those views were completely supported by apparent insanity. Here is a nice clip that demonstrates that character, from Dr. Strangelove:
Our personal freedoms are threatened by a bicycle sharing program. He says it will lead to abortions and control of American cities by the UN.
Was the physical act of love a part of his revelation?
