Armed NH Resident Torch UN Flag
New Hampshire Underground ^ | 12/18/04 | Kat Dillon

Posted on 12/18/2004 4:19:16 PM PST by bookish_lass

For Immediate Release December 18, 2004

SUBJECT: NH residents torch UN flag

Liberty lovers from across the Live Free or Die State converged on Keene, New Hampshire today to demonstrate their defiance of the United Nations. Twenty citizens from Keene and as far away as Rochester and Etna joined in opposing the UN by burning multiple UN flags. A promised counter-protest failed to materialize.

Various reasons for disgust with the UN drew this group together. Some were there in opposition to UN attempts to ban private gun ownership as was proposed at the 2001 UN Small Arms and Light Weapons Conference. A few gun rights advocates wore their firearms openly in celebration of the fact that our right to defend ourselves and our families is respected in New Hampshire. The oil-for-food scandal drew many to protest the excesses of Kofi Annan and the theft of our tax dollars.

The loss of sovereignty inherent in world government, and in particular from the giving over of US parklands to UN control angered many. Many were surprised to learn that the UN controls a large section of forest land in New Hampshire, the Hubbard Brook Biosphere Reserve and Experimental Forest, located in the White Mountain National Forest. Many participants in the demonstration hope for passage of New Hampshire's 2005-H-0002-R, which if passed will urge Congress to withdraw the United States from the United Nations.

Doesn't surprise me. Here's a link to the list of all the things that the UN has its tentacles into. Frightening.

In the liberal universe burning the American flag is a sacred right whereas burning the UN flag is probably a hate crime.

"Many were concerned that the UN controls a large section of forest land in New Hampshire"
Many more will be surprised that there are other such areas in the US. There is at least one on the Oregon coast.

I wish they would have done this in front of the UN HQ of New York. That should ring a bell to get it on TV news and give Kofi Annan a shock.

This would be easy for any of us to do. We just get a bunch of white handkerchiefs and set fire to them in public. The white handkerchiefs have the added bonus of being able to represent the flag of the UN or France or Germany, or any other country that wants to engage in Pacifism As A Policy when confronted by those who want to turn the whole world into a theocratic dictatorship and kill everybody who doesn't worship Allah in the exact same way they do.

Burn the UN flag and cheese off liberals at the same time.

One of the more subtle sites:

www.geocities.com/forceoffreedom/un.html

!!!!!!! Burn baby burn !!!!!!!

BURN THE UN FLAG!

UN cash for accused Nazi (Waldheim got $$$$ 4.1 million !!!! US TAXES HELPED PAY!)

'War Crimes' Fear For British Troops. Well, they wanted the World Court Didn't They?

Sick, sick book made to pervert children, funded by the UN [aka Unicef]

The UN's HUGE Pedophile Scandal

..."So let's see: Senior U.N. officials knew of the widespread pedophilia. Not only did they not take action against the perpetrators, they covered up the atrocities. And even after the scandal comes to light, most media give this major news event little or no coverage."...

Have the un flag printed on rolls of bathroom wipe. Send thousands of rolls to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Give them to homeless in san franciso and other homo strong holds. That would really burn the lunatic left. Now all we need is a millionaire to foot the bill.

Kill the UN and burn all their stupid bits of paper - that's all world heritage a la UN really is; a bunch of (*) DOCUMENTS!

The World will still exist without the freeloaders at the UN. I believe there are some 750,000 employed by this organization to perpetuate this obscenity.

For those who may have forgotten (:-) ) the primary movers behind the UN were FDR aides Harry Dexter White and Laughlin Curry.

We now know that the Birch Society claims that they were Stalinist agents were correct.

The UN has always had one primary goal--the socialist enslavement of all mankind under one world government.

That our tax dollars go to that organization is a frontal assault on the freedom and dignity of every American.

Mr President and all Americans,
Please read this and ask yourself why you support the UN for any reason at all

Since its inception, they have been our most powerful enemy. Today, there are Republican Senators who wish that we would pass the LOST Treaty! Why?????? .

>> The main reason is that it's like everything else coming out of the U.N. today, its attempt is to punish us. Its attempt is to take us down a size or two. The attempt here is to destroy the United States as a superpower, pure and simple. We threaten too many despots. We threaten too many dictators. We threaten waaaay too many people who want to oppress other people. They are jealous as hell of us because they feel threatened with our superior military might and the ability we have to project power, and so every move made by the U.N., whether it's this stupid climate conference or Kyoto or anything else that they come up with is nothing more than a way for them to get their hands into our treasury. <<

The primary reasons behind the EPA, ESA and NAFTA are to slow the American economy.

WHY WOULD A REPUBLICAN SUPPORT THIS DISRUPTION??

We should burn the United Nations flag on:

January First, New Year's Day
Day of President Bush's inauguration
President Lincoln's birthday
President Washington's birthday
St. Patrick's Day
May Day
Earth Day
Sky Day
Fourth of July - on the hour!
President Jefferson's birthday
All of the Adams' birthdays, including Abrigil (sp?)
And on birthdays of Thomas Paine, Voltaire, et al.
On any convenient day, and
I'll do it on my birthday.

"Liberals" believe it's un-American to ban flag-burning.
Who's to argue against FREE EXPRESSION or a benign act signifying great DISRESPECT?

It's SOooo Pagan! I have a suggestion for a "burning man" effigy too.

The heavy politicians, the ones who support "sustainable devlopment", globalization, OWG do not want the UN to collapse because it is the foundation of these programs.

So, if you like the idea of losing every bit of personal freedom, ie National ID Cards, RIFD, Matrix, Agenda 21, then continue to praise the value of the UN.

If you have specific questions about Agenda 21 or "sustainable devlopment" backhoe and I will do our best to answer them.

Gotta have media coverage - let all Americans and the world know what it's about - congregate energy opposing UN global collectivism. It's the American revolutionary spirit in continuum.

What about burning dirty smelly sweat-sour undershirts called "Michael Moore"?
