Say what you will about Sarah Palin, but she's right on the money on this one. The main objective of the UN is to grift as much money as possible from the US tax payer. As the old saying goes, get the US out of the UN and get the UN out of the US.

It's small change compared to the federal budget, and a cheap price for the ability to get your invasions rubber stamped.

Seems like that rubber stamp is just for show anyways.

Well... a quasi independent sub-organisation who no one really listens to took it seriously. I wouldn't complain if the US left the UN by any means, it's slowly turning into a world government, but the gamergate angle isn't critical.

But the UN is like the USA's bitch.

Other way around, the USA is the UN's bitch. We provide all funding and military support, yet we have to do what they say (for the most part) while they praise dictators, murderers, and rapists.

We have veto power on the UN Security Council. We use it to do whatever the fuck we want.

The US provides alot of funding and military support because the UN is a useful cover for US foreign policy.

We only need the security council, everything else in the UN is useless fluff and needs to be removed. We can just completely cut the funding and kick them out of NYC.

The UN is another one that lost it's way. I mean making a Saudi chairman of the human rights committee?

I'm unsure if the UN did that in an attempt to draw attention to Saudi Arabia's human rights atrocities and make them know they were being observed... if so, the UN seriously underestimated how proud Muslims are of how disgusting they are.

A number of points on this:

  • Shit from a site like mother jones should be archived

  • It's not in the federal government's interest to leave the UN assuming they remain expansionist: It's a very useful cover for projecting their power worldwide

  • If you value small government, the UN has to go. It's gradually becoming the world government, which is why socialist sites like mother jones have a hard-on for it

  • Apart from expansionism, the parts of the UN that like to spend money had been coopted by feminists and environmentalists. A minor example of this is Anita Sarkeesian's speech, a more significant example would be the doctoring of rape and genital mutilation stats in Africa and the manufactured consensus on AGW.

I'm rarely with Sarah Palin, but ever since SA was on the human rights council and that fucktard AS was invited to tell about how literally everything is sexist, racist, and it's the microagressions we have to focus on...

FUCK THE UN. BIGGEST FUCKING JOKE EVER.
