UNESCO: Strangle This Monster in Its
Wednesday, June 18, 2003
Unless Congress regains a modicum of sanity, the United States of
America is about to rejoin an organization dedicated to the
destruction of the last vestiges of Judeo-Christian civilization.
For reasons inexplicable to most sensible Americans, in September
2002, an otherwise sensible President George W. Bush told the United
Nations that the U.S. will rejoin the United Nations Educational,
Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), a wild-eyed bunch
President Reagan abandoned in 1984, noting that it was utterly
corrupt and the U.S. had no business being a member of such a group.
Most Americans are blissfully ignorant of the insidious nature of
this crowd of one-world, paganistic pseudo-communists (and real
ones) who are bound and determined to create a new world order,
establish a new world religion of tree worshippers that supplants
and scorns Christianity and Judaism, promotes abortion worldwide,
seeks to capture control of schools and schoolchildren, and is in
the process of transforming national and privately owned property in
the U.S. and elsewhere into its greedy hands.
Now, this is not black helicopter alarmism – every word in the
above paragraph is based on the declarations of UNESCO and its
gurus, and many of the programs are now in the process of being
implemented in the U.S.
Consider this gem from UNESCO revealed by William F. Jasper in
The New American magazine:
"A 10-part series for teachers, published in 1949 under the title
Toward World Understanding, asserted that 'one of the chief aims of
education today should be to prepare boys and girls to take an
active part in the creation of a world society. ...' But government
schools must stamp out love of country and the family must be viewed
as the enemy: 'As long as the child breathes the poisoned air of
nationalism, education in world-mindedness can produce only rather
precarious results. As we have pointed out, it is frequently the
family that infects the child with extreme nationalism. The school
should therefore use the means described earlier to combat family
attitudes that favor jingoism.'"
In other words, undermine parental authority and relegate
patriotism to the category of "jingoism."
Incredibly, unless Congress acts in July to strangle this monster
in its crib before it becomes our fearsome master, the United States
will rejoin this group, send it tens of millions of your tax dollars
every year, become a living part of the New World Order and subject
American schoolchildren to the rule of an international paganistic
schoolmarm who despises everything Americans cherish and believe in.
Believe me, this is serious stuff, and Congress is rushing
headlong into approving membership in this new Kremlin and setting
the state for a rebirth of international communism and the
inevitable gulag that will reinforce its rule.
President Bush cited as his reason for rejoining UNESCO his
contention that the organization has reformed. Not according to
Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who introduced a resolution expressing
the sense of the Congress that the United States should not rejoin
"Those calling for the United States to rejoin UNESCO claim that
the organization has undertaken fundamental reforms and therefore
the United States should re-join," Paul said.
"It is strange that in the 18 years since the United States left
UNESCO, we only started reading about the beginnings of reform in
the year 2000," he continued. "Are we to believe that after nearly
two decades of no change in UNESCO’s way of mismanaging itself
things have changed so much in just two years? Is it worth spending
$60 million per year on an organization with such a terrible history
of waste, corruption, and anti-Americanism?"
According to Rep. Paul, "even if UNESCO has been 'reforming' its
finances over the past two years, its programmatic activities are
still enough to cause great concern among those of us who value
American sovereignty and honor our Constitution. Consider the
following as a partial list of UNESCO’s ongoing highly questionable
- "UNESCO meddles in the education affairs of its
member-countries and has sought to construct a U.N.-based school
curriculum for American schools.
- "UNESCO has been fully supportive of the United Nations’
Population Fund (UNFPA) in its assistance to China’s brutal
coercive population control program.
- "UNESCO has designated 47 U.N. Biosphere Reserves in the
United States covering more than 70 million acres, without
- "UNESCO effectively bypasses Congressional authority to manage
federal lands, by establishing management policies without
Congressional consultation or approval."
According to Jasper, UNESCO proposed adoption of the New World
Information Order (NWIO), which finally "proved to be the last
straw. Under the Orwellian NWIO scheme, UNESCO proposed to license
and control all journalists, broadcasters, and media personnel
worldwide — the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights
This, wrote Jasper, "finally got the attention of members of the
'liberal' press, who for decades airily dismissed the warnings of
UNESCO’s conservative critics. The NWIO provided the critical
impetus needed to spur U.S. withdrawal."
But nothing's changed. UNESCO, under the guidance of former
Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev, is still dedicated to a Marxist
world order. According to Jasper, representatives from more than 150
countries met in Jomtien, Thailand, on March 5, 1990, for a five-day
World Conference on Education for All (WCEFA), sponsored by UNESCO,
UNICEF, UNDP (United Nations Development Program), the World Bank,
other U.N. agencies and one-world NGOs (non-governmental
Out of that gathering came two important documents: The World
Declaration on Education for All, and The Framework for Action to
Meet Basic Learning Needs.
It is important to understand that much of the mischief planned
by UNESCO is outlined in the so-called Earth Charter, a profane (as
opposed to sacred) document that is carted around the globe like an
unholy relic in an atheistic version of the Ark of the Covenant
known as the "Ark of Hope." (I am not making this up, as Dave Barry
Jasper warns that "A global stealth campaign is underway and is
gathering momentum. The masterminds of this campaign are aiming at
nothing less than a world revolution, a revolution of mind and heart
that will change and 'transform' humanity. They have devised a new
'Global Ethic' to replace the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a new 'Sixteen
Principles' to replace the Ten Commandments. They call it the Earth
Although like the great majority of Americans you probably have
never heard of the "Earth Charter," you soon will be experiencing
its deadly effects. According to Jasper, the Charter "is being
adopted and accepted by schools, universities, cities, counties,
churches, businesses, and professional groups as a basic handbook
providing moral direction for all human action, including all
legislation and public policy."
Suffice it to say that what the Charter envisions is a world
order governed by an elite composed of men dedicated to the
implementation of the world socialist order the Soviet Union was
unable to impose on mankind, men such as the unrepentant communist
Gorbachev - in other words, a huge global prison for all mankind
except for the elite, who will be the wardens.
Doubt this? Well, then, you had better consider that all across
the U.S. UNESCO's programs are already being implemented, as Jasper
- On Feb. 13, 2003, U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige helped
launch UNESCO’s Literacy Decade.
- The School Sisters of Notre Dame, a teaching order of Catholic
nuns, have launched an educational campaign focused on the Earth
Charter in their schools throughout North America.
- All 35 members teaching "The University Colloquium: A
Sustainable Future" at Florida Gulf Coast University use the Earth
Charter. This class is a graduation requirement in all five
colleges of the university.
- The Global Higher Education for Sustainability Partnership — a
partnership of the Association of University Leaders for a
Sustainable Future, Copernicus-Campus, the International
Association of Universities, and UNESCO — is working to "develop
and disseminate college-level teaching materials on 'Earth Ethics
and Sustainable Development' " based on the Earth Charter.
- The Global Elementary Model United Nations, a worldwide
elementary school program, adopted the Earth Charter as its
overarching theme for 2002 and asked participating students to use
UNESCO teaching materials on the Charter.
- "Earth Charter: Pathway to a Sustainable Future" is the title
of a course taught by Dr. Laurie Thorp at Michigan State
- Earth Scouts, a new national youth program, was launched last
year "based on the Earth Charter: A Declaration of
Interdependence," with badges for the Charter’s 16 principles.
- The University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh and Prescott College
have endorsed the Earth Charter, with plans to eventually
integrate it into all departments.
- The U.S. Conference of Mayors and many organizations and local
governments have endorsed the Charter.
- Comrade Gorbachev will be traveling in the United States this
year to promote the Charter.
- The Ark of Hope and Earth Charter are being taken to U.S.
cities and communities to aid the campaign for its adoption.
Warns Jasper: "Although children are not allowed to pray in the
government schools to the one true God who made the cosmos and
everything in it (including our planet), they are being encouraged,
under the new "global spirituality," to adopt the pagan religions of
indigenous cultures and to worship the Earth itself. The
UN-appointed high priest of the new Earth cult, Mr. Gorbachev, has
declared his creed: 'Cosmos is my God; Nature is my God.' Will your
children follow him, chanting their mantras of praise to the Earth
goddess Gaia, or some jungle deity or sacred dung beetle? You will
not have much say in the matter, if Gorbachev and company have their
way. And they do intend to have their way. Thanks to President Bush
and a compliant Congress, these Earth Charter evangelists recently
received a major boost to their sinister crusade."
Jasper concludes: "The Earth Charter stealth campaign is now
coming into the open. UNESCO is preparing for massive expansion.
These dual threats must be confronted in their early stages; now is
the time for parents, educators, pastors, and concerned citizens to
become alarmed, informed, and active in stopping these threats,
before their insidious influences become embedded in our schools,
communities, and local governments."
Don't say we didn't warn you when you child comes home from
school, orders his pregnant mother to get an abortion, and starts
praying to that tree in your front yard.
