Daniel Greenfield’s 10 Reasons to Abolish the UN is a must-read. Find it here.
These are the 10 reasons summed up in headings:
1. The United Nations Obstructs America’s Defense of the Free World
2. The United Nations is a Force of Global Injustice
3. The UN Obstructs the Prevention of Genocide
4. The UN Distorts Women’s Rights to Promote Violence against Women
5. The UN Cannot Prevent Nuclear Proliferation
6. The UN is an Undemocratic Perversion of Democracy
7. The United Nations is Hopelessly Corrupt
8. The UN is an Economic Drain on America
9. The United Nations Endangers American Civil Liberties
10. The UN Holds Human Rights Hostage to its Double Standards
The booklet is short, but every accusation is fully proved.
In his Conclusion, Greenfield writes:
The UN is a vast global employment agency with no purpose except the perpetuation of its own power and authority. Its lofty buildings and the bustle of its vast armies of employees conceal its underlying corruption and uselessness.
American participation in the United Nations supports the deception that it is an international body capable of fair-minded governance. That deception cruelly betrays the hopes of the weak and the vulnerable and abets genocide, mass rape and terror.
The United Nations has become an organizational assault on its own founding principles. And all the while it undermines the sovereignty and rights of the free member nations who still believe that all men are created equal and that governments derive their authority from the people.
The only way to redeem those principles is to exit its corridors and walk a new path toward an alternative alliance that does more than pay lip service to freedom, democracy and human rights. Only America can be the nucleus of such an alliance. And only when the nation that gave the world freedom leaves the international order that impedes it can a global alliance of free nations truly be born.
In an article titled America: The Chief Subsidizer of UN Rapists and Traffickers, chiefly concerned with what happens to whistle-blowers on the UN role in crimes of rape and the trafficking of sex slaves, Phyllis Chesler expresses her disgust with that appalling institution:
The Wilsonian-influenced ideals of the UN are not realistic or realizable.
We agree emphatically. And whenever unrealistic ideals are set, nastiness ensues. (Vide Christianity.)
The UN is predicated on the myth — nay, the lie — that UN diplomats and civil servants are morally upright, fair, decent, rational — and, not the vicious tyrants, bullies, thugs, liars, egomaniacs, cowards, and grifters that they truly are. Nor does the UN have a transparent system in place that would hold their mightily flawed personnel accountable for the crimes they commit. …
Who keeps it going, this Tower of Iniquity, this World Headquarters of Evil? More than any other country, the United States of America!
If it is clear that the United Nations allows its peacekeeping troops to commit major human rights atrocities, why would we allow such an institution to render decisions that are meant to affect the entire world? Why would we abide by such decisions? More important: Why should the United States fund an international criminal operation? The United States pays the lion’s share of the Secretariat costs at the United Nations. Don’t worry, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has assured stressed American taxpayers that the two-year headquarters budget (2010-11) will only amount to a meager $4.92 billion.
According to the UN peacekeeping website, the budget for the fiscal year 1 July 2011-30 June 2012 is approximately seven billion dollars. The United States is responsible for 27 percent of this cost, or about two billion. This is far more than what Japan (1 billion), the UK (591 million), China (285 million), Spain (230 million), or Korea (164 million) pays for peacekeepers. Interestingly, under President Barack Obama’s administration, the United States overpaid its share of the UN peacekeeping budget. In fact, our overpayment of 287 million dollars is more than what most of the world’s supporters — including China — pay for “peacekeeping.”
Why is the United States funding rapists, criminals, pimps, brothels, and sex traffickers? Why are we funding orgies? Why are we funding the most heinous betrayal of the world’s most vulnerable civilians in war zones? Why are we overpaying for UN peacekeeping?
Why is the US paying anything at all to sustain the rotten institution?
THE UN MUST BE DESTROYED.
