As if the US needed yet another reason to withdraw entirely from the absolutely reprehensible United Nations.....
WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House objected Thursday to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's description of the United States as a "deadbeat" donor to the world body.
Ban used the phrase Wednesday during a private meeting with lawmakers at the Capitol, one day after he met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Ban's "word choice was unfortunate," given that the U.S. is the largest contributor to the United Nations.
The United States pays 22 percent of the organization's nearly $5 billion operating budget but is perennially late paying its dues.
Asked whether Ban should retract his comment, Gibbs said some recognition by Ban of the U.S. role would be appropriate.
"I think given the contribution that the American taxpayer makes, I do think it would be appropriate to acknowledge that role," Gibbs told reporters at his daily briefing.
The awful, dispicable UN does not one good thing, anywhere on Earth. The blue-hats are much more likely to be implicated raping children, stealing from people, and funneling money to brutal dictatorships than they are stopping violence. In fact, where there is violence and shooting, that's the place you can count on not finding any UN troops. But that's where you'll always find American troops doing the job the UN is supposed to be doing.
The American taxpayer is robbed year after year to pay for this collection of kooks and anti-American despots to hang around New York and criticize us. The more virulently anti-American you are, the more of a hero you will be to the UN audience. The more you oppress your people, the more you steal aid money, and the more corrupt your dictatorship, the more favorably the UN will gaze upon you.
Yet, in spite of the hostility toward the US among UN representatives, President Obama wants to loot the American taxpayer for still more cash to fork over to Ban Ki-Moon for the UN's pointless, idiotic adventures in child rape around the world.
Here's Ban Ki-Moon, puckering up to kiss some anti-American, dictator butt.
