President Trump has announced the withdrawal of the U.S. from the United Nations Educational, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) effective Dec. 31, 2018. The organization is the educational arm of the United Nations that was founded by former Soviet spy Algier Hiss.
In 1984 President Reagan withdrew the U.S. from UNESCO, but in 2003 President George W. Bush re-entered the nation.
The withdrawal of the U.S. was announced by the U.S. Embassy in Israel with this press release:
“In July, when UNESCO made its latest outrageous and politically based decision, designating the Old City of Hebron and the Tomb of the Patriarchs as part of Palestinian territory, the United States clearly stated that this decision would negatively affect our evaluation of our level of engagement with the organization. The United States will continue to evaluate all agencies within the United Nations system through the same lens.
“‘The purpose of UNESCO is a good one. Unfortunately, its extreme politicization has become a chronic embarrassment. The Tomb of the Patriarchs decision was just the latest in a long line of foolish actions, which includes keeping Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad on a UNESCO human rights committee even after his murderous crackdown on peaceful protesters. Just as we said in 1984 when President Reagan withdrew from UNESCO, U.S. taxpayers should no longer be on the hook to pay for policies that are hostile to our values and make a mockery of justice and common sense,’ said Ambassador Nikki Haley.”
This action on the part of Trump is hailed by conservatives as a positive step toward disassociating ourselves from the U.N. and its radical left membership.
The next step is to get the U.N. out of American education by terminating all International Baccalaureate Studies program in K-12 schools. The program was initially funded by UNESCO, which continues to fund certain IB activities and identifies IB as a “partner” in its international education initiatives.
“A Continuum of International Education,” published by the IB Organization in 2002, notes that the goal of IB is to develop “citizens of the world” with “universal human values.”
Critics contend the IB curriculum promotes denigration of Western national sovereignty and pushes environmental extremism and the feminist agenda.
A UNESCO report, “Worldwide Action in Education,” refers to a seamless education system “aimed at two essential goals” – socialization and training for a global workforce.
Workforce training is now the goal of American public education rather than academics.
The U.N. has been highly successful in achieving its goal of changing attitudes and beliefs in our youth so they will voluntarily accept a socialist one world order.
Of the 5,865 worldwide IB programs, U.S. schools host 57.3 percent of them. For the “privilege” of having an anti-American, anti-Christian IB program in American schools, taxpayers fork over around $15,000 application/candidacy fees per school in addition to annual fees ranging from about $8,300–$12,000, assessment fees from $10-$89 for each test, and teacher-training fees plus expenses.
Is there any wonder why high-achieving IB students support social justice and abortion?
UNESCO is tied to billionaire Bill Gates by the “Cooperation Agreement” signed with Microsoft Corporation in 2004 to develop a “master curriculum” for teacher training.
In 2009 the U.N. recommended the UNESCO curriculum for mandatory teaching of masturbation to children beginning at age 5 and the safety of legal abortion at age 9.
Changing American culture and destroying our Judeo-Christian values is the end goal for the U.N. Only we who want to preserve our American exceptionalism can stop that agenda dead in its tracks.
Americans will have to stop being fearful of being called deplorables, racists, Islamophobes, homophobes and every other despicable name progressive socialists use to silence us. Do you really fear they will burn you at the stake?
Look at it this way. Being called names by these evil-minded people is actually a badge of honor. These hypocrites fear us and are furiously trying to shake us off their tails.
Get a spine, stand tall, and use your First Amendment right to restore our culture and God-given rights. And be prepared to exercise your Second Amendment right if you have to defend yourself and your family.
The end of UNESCO can’t come too soon for the well-being of this nation. Withdrawing from the U.N. completely is a campaign promise we want to see fulfilled.
