"I am appalled at the extensive evidence indicating that there is today in the UN among the American employees there, the greatest concentration of communists that this Committee has ever encountered. … These people occupy high positions. They have very high salaries and almost all of these people have, in the past, been employees in the U.S. government in high and sensitive positions."
James O. Eastland
(1904-1986) U.S. Senator (D-Mississippi)
Activities of U.S. Citizens Employed by the UN (Hearings), Congressional Record (1951)

Reader comments about this quote:
Today's Communism is better identified by the term Globalism and wrapped in euphemisms like "Global Village" or "Global Economy". And the majority of people are actually too stupid to see it. 5 stars for the truth.

    J Carlton, said well. Welcome to Amerika comrades.

    The UN is a rat's nest of reds and should be sent to N. Korea.

    Consider the source. Eastland was a politician, propagandist and power broker. He was never a fact finder or straight talker. When Prez Johnson discussed the three missing and murdered civil rights workers with him, he said "I think it is a publicity stunt and they ain't missing" even though Johnson was standing with the kids bereaved parents. Johnson said, "Eastland could stand in the middle of a Mississippi flood and blame it on the "N's" and the communists. The guy was a flake and so are those who fall for such propagandists.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    As true today as it was in 1951. I can never understand why someone would defend communism -- millions upon millions of citizens were wiped out. That IS communism.
