Huckabee at Right-Wing Event: ‘United Nations has Become a Disgrace!’

September 28, 2009

(ChattahBox)—A group of extreme right-wing conservatives attended a conference in St. Louis over the weekend, to swap paranoid conspiracy theories, bash gays and accuse President Obama of “taking us into socialism.” The headliner speaker at the “How to Take Back America Conference,” was Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee, who swooped in to pander to the fringe of his party and declare war on the United Nations and Manhattan, by shamelessly invoking a New World Order conspiracy.

It’s worth noting that the more responsible members of the Republican Party avoided the gathering of fringe right-wingers who promote extreme inflammatory rhetoric, but not Mike Huckabee and not Rep. Michele Bachmann. Other far right lawmakers attending were, Republican Reps. Tom McClintock, Tom Price and Steve King.

During former Arkansas Gov. and GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee’s headliner speech on Saturday, he declared that the United Nations should be jackhammered out of existence along with the section of New York it resides upon:

“It’s time to get a jackhammer and to simply chip off that part of New York City and let it float into the East River, never to be seen again!”

“It’s time to say enough of the American taxpayer’s dollar being spent on something that may have been a noble idea, but has become a disgrace!” he added. “It has become the international equivalent of ACORN and it’s time to say enough!”

Huckabee received wild applause for his bashing of the United Nations, the favorite bogeyman of right-wingers. And he scored additional points for making a comparison to the conservative bogeyman du jour, ACORN.

Jackhammering the UN and Manhattan into the East River, was not the only nuttiness of the weekend, however. Phyllis Schlafly opened the event by saying she believes President Obama is “taking us into socialism.”

The 70s era anti-feminist matriarch also spoke about her favorite topic saying, feminism is “the most destructive force in the world.”

In between the unhinged speeches, attendees had the opportunity to participate in various breakout sessions entitled, “How to counter the homosexual movement,” “How to stop the killings: pro-life solutions,” “How to defend America vs. missile attack, “How to defeat UN attacks on sovereignty” and this writer’s personal favorite, “How to recognize living under Nazis and Communists.”

On hand to provide comic relief was “Joe the Plumber,” where he was awarded a golden wrench and plunger to “flush out Washington.”

    Mike Huckabee expressed his opinion about jack-hammering the area of NY where UN building is located (International equivalent of ACORN).
    You might agree or disagree with him.
    But you do not have to be mean or rude, posting a picture of him that is from years and years ago.

    Do not let your heart be troubled.
