Communists and the United Nations
April 21, 2010 by Chip Wood
On April 25, 1945, 45 countries convened in San Francisco for the founding conference of the United Nations (U.N.). The general secretary of the meeting was none other than the notorious Soviet espionage agent, Alger Hiss. He had been picked personally for the post by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and was promptly approved by FDRâ€™s buddy, â€śUncle Joeâ€ť Stalin.
Hiss was not the only American involved in the formation of the United Nations who was later revealed to be a Communist. In fact, of the 18 Americans cited by the State Department in 1950 as â€śthe important men who shaped the UN,â€ť all but one was later identified as Communists. The lone exception was former Secretary of State Dean Acheson, who may not have been red, but was certainly very pink.
With such a record it is no surprise that the U.N.â€™s â€śUniversal Declaration of Rightsâ€ť makes absolutely no mention of the source of our rights being a Creatorâ€”or anything else but governmentâ€”and further says that all rights and freedoms â€śshall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law.â€ť
No wonder that the U.N.â€™s idea of â€śworld peaceâ€ť has always and everywhere been the same as â€śworld socialism.â€ť Or why so many responsible Americans insist that the U.S. should get out of the U.N.â€”and vice versa.
