The United Nations-Do you think they should be asked to leave the United States of America? ?

I read this article today.....

Do you think America should remove anti-American and anti-Jewish political grandstanding from the podium of the General Assembly?

Legislation will seize U.N.

property amid continual anti-American, anti-Jewish sentiment

( WASHINGTON, DC ) – 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.

The United Nations is hosting dictators from around the world this week, including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran’s brutal dictator. His speech has drawn thousands of protestors in New York City.

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 United Nations, an organization known for its bureaucracy and conciliatory actions, has become a showcase for anti-American dictators like Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and, of course, Ahmadinejad. 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.

Update:

I agree with the first two questions...they seem to be more bad, than good!

Update 2:

I meant, first two answers! Thanks guys..

    Each statement he makes is correct and is as hot as his conclusion.

    In that case, and in the many examples cited, YES, the U.N. should be asked to leave the US, but not dictated to IMO.

    We still need a safe place for the U.N. and the US can provide that probably better other Nations. Of course this is both a slap in the face and biting the hand that feeds you.

    Some of it can be tolerated, while issuing stern reprimands or withholding funding, if they are to stay and be policed, and be more neutral and less tolerant of dissident and/or rogue Nations.

    It would be the same, perhaps worse anywhere else. The best we can do is to make change.

    It is possible for anything to happen, however, these United States of America have more to gain by staying united. The American Civil War saw some states leave the union, but it was not in their best interest and they moved back when the war ended, United We Stand, Divided We Fall is more than just a slogan, it is a statement of fact as far as we are concerned.

    Absolutely. The UN has become a terrorist-supporting organization and we give credibility to that organization just being a part of it. Not to mention the tax payer dollars that go to an organization that the majority of Americans don't even want to be a part of. The USA recently left the Human Rights Council of the UN citing that it had been taken over by African and Middle Eastern countries whose only purpose was to bash Israel.

    The UN is a piece of crap, seriously the only thing they do is get more people killed. Just look at Darfur all the strongly worded letters of disapproval they are sending the leaders of the Janjaweed are probably just using it for toilet paper.
