UN benign as cancer
July 28, 2003
It was surely the United Nations he had in mind when George Orwell wrote, "Big Brother is watching you." As the UN revs up the propaganda machine for United Nations Day on October 24, Canadafreepress.com has come up with a slogan: "The UN is not a warm fuzzy blanket, its a political agenda in action."
"United Nations Secretary General Koffi Annan wants to establish a Socialist one-world government," says usasurvival.org. "Many people dont believe this to be true. They see the UN as a benign organization working for world peace and international harmony, but nothing could be further from the truth."
The organizations third report, The United Nations Today, included an exclusive interview with Linda Shenwick, an American UN employee fired by former Secretary of State Madeline Albright for telling Congress about UN corruption. It was so controversial but well-documented that Ted Turners UN Wire was forced to report on it. A significant majority in the House of Representatives voted to support whistleblower protection for Linda Shenwick.
Most folk are too busy leading their lives to pay much attention to the worlds largest bureaucracy with a beehive housed in a green-glass global headquarters in mid-town Manhattan. While we lead our "quiet lives of desperation," the UN has inexorably churned out a message, reinforcing a self-image of "benign." Unfortunately, the UN is as benign as a cancer.
As writer James Hume so poignantly asked, "When did the UN become the supreme moral authority of the world?"
Over time, with lots of money, Mr. Hume.
Here are some facts never seen in the myriad of UN press releases. Before King Kofi, all eight secretary-generals of the UN have either been dedicated socialists or communists.
Indeed, the UNs first secretary general was Alger Hiss, orchestrator of the San Francisco conference, who was later convicted as a Soviet agent.
History shows us that it was January 1, 1942, when representatives of 26 Allied nations fighting against the Axis Powers met in Washington, D.C. to pledge their support for the Atlantic Charter by signing the Declaration by United Nations. This document contained the first official use of the term "United Nations," which was suggested by President Roosevelt.
Untold legions of press releases and communiqués later, the United Nations is a household word.
In more modern chapters, following the departure of the disgraced Hiss, came new visions from tricky Annan, who now has less than courageous Canadian politicians earmarked for special UN roles.
Canadian Prime-Minister-in-Waiting Paul Martin joins Peruvian activist Hernando de Soto on a UN commission struck to help private-sector economies of developing countries.
Annan poster boy Maurice Strong will be a senior advisor to Martin. Time will prove that Martin will succeed--all but virtually unopposed--to the office of Canadas Prime Minister, representing a political party that enjoys one-party status.
And de Soto? The respected Forbes magazine described him as "among 15 innovators who will reinvent your future."
Now theres unbridled arrogance for you.
The benign-as-cancer United Nations is not a warm fuzzy blanket. Its a political agenda in action--a slogan whose time has come.
