Tancredo: UN GET OUT!

Hat tip to No Compromise When it Comes to Being Right

I’m beginning to really love this man.

Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Littleton, CO) is beginning to look like a true leader for the House of Representatives. First it was his anti-Shar’ia legislation that he introduced to the US Congress and now it is this.

U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Littleton) introduced legislation today that would effectively move the United Nations headquarters out of the United States. The legislation is being introduced amid incessant anti-American and anti-Jewish political grandstanding from the podium of the General Assembly.

“The U.N. has coddled brutal dictators, anti-Semites, state sponsors of terrorism, and nuclear proliferators – while excluding democratic countries from membership and turning a blind eye to humanitarian tragedies and gross violations of human rights around the globe,” Tancredo said. “The U.N.’s continued presence in the United States is an embarrassment to our nation, and the time has come for this ineffective organization to pack its bags and hit the road.”

Tancredo’s bill, dubbed the U.N. Eviction Act, would direct Attorney General Michael Mukasey to initiate condemnation proceedings against all United Nations properties within the United States, and sell the property to the highest bidder on the open market. The proceeds will be given to the Treasury Department to pay down the national debt. The bill would also bar the future purchase of property in the United States or U.S. territories by the U.N. or any of its agencies, and revokes the diplomatic privileges and immunities that U.N. officials and representatives currently enjoy.

“I refuse to sit idly by while Americans are forced to host Islamofascist dictators, like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, so they can spew anti-American rhetoric just blocks from Ground Zero,” Tancredo continued.

The organization has also become little more than a rubber stamp for Chinese and Russian foreign policy initiatives – blocking membership by the democratic nation of Taiwan in the world body, and failing to take any meaningful steps to halt the ongoing genocide in Sudan or the illicit nuclear programs in North Korea and Iran.

“If the U.N. is so keen to accommodate the foreign policy demands of rogue nations and dictatorships, perhaps the world body might be more comfortable relocating to one,” concluded Tancredo. “I’m sure Ban Ki-Moon will have no trouble securing a new location in downtown Pyongyang or Tehran.”

It is high time that the United States pull out of that Tower of Babel and reject all ideas coming from its walls. The ground (after a good decontamination clean-up) could be turned into a more useful and rewarding place. Low cost housing, a new school, a hospital or even a park. There the people of New York would not have to put up with the likes of Hugo Chavez or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Just think of the happy dogs roaming in a lovely park, doing their business where once these men spoke their words of hatred.

Another good result in leaving the UN would be the billions of US taxpayer dollars that we would save each year. Money that has been used for corruption and greed by the UN since the 1960’s. This money could better be used to help reduce the US Debt.

The City of New York would benefit the most. For their taxpayers are forced to pay extra to have the honor of hosting the UN. Instead they would no longer have to foot the bill for the extra police needed when the UN General Assembly meets or when one or another of these diplomats (and I use that term loosely) decides not to pay parking tickets, have car insurance, commits a crime or any other offense that they are known to do.

Way to go Congressman Tancredo. This nation needs more men and women in the Congress with your ideas and beliefs.
