Former Lawrentian speaks out against “commie” U.N.

As schoolchildren, we were asked to “trick-or-treat for UNICEF,” and so began the indoctrination that the United Nations is a benevolent organization. The U.N. has been in existence for more than half a century, but all too many Americans poorly understand its origins and objectives.

One can learn a lot about an organization by examining its founders. The Soviet Union was a major player at the 1945 U.N. founding conference in San Francisco. One would think that the influence of the Soviet communists would have been counterbalanced by the presence of the Americans, especially since the acting scretary general and chief planner of the founding conference was an American.

But that man was Alger Hiss. He and 15 other key U.S. officials who shaped the policies leading to the creation of the U.N. were later exposed as communist agents.

As a result of their involvement, communist principles became U.N. principles. For example, numerous articles in the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights are lifted almost verbatim from the Soviet Constitution.

Given a superficial reading, that U.N. document may seem to be innocuous enough. It grants freedom of speech, the press, religion, etc., with limitations only “as provided by law.”

But contrast that with the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law . . .” The U.S. Constitution protects those freedoms; the U.N. document does not.

The many U.N. conferences that have been held over the years make it clear that the ultimate goal behind the U.N. system is the creation of a single world government. The consequences of that would be devastating for the United States and its citizens.

After all, it would not be inaccurate to say that the U.N. was created by communists, for communists.

At the very least, U.N. documents prove that the U.N. is UN-American.

So, let’s get the U.S. out of the U.N., and the U.N. out of the U.S.!
