And shortly thereafter, under a barrage of Leftist propaganda, the U.S. Senate ratified the Charter with only two dissenting votes. The opposition had indeed been rendered “impotent.”
On March 23, 1946, Josef Stalin was quoted by Pravda as having declared: “I attribute great importance to U.N.O. since it is a serious instrument for preservation of peace and international security.” And in November of 1946 the Soviet publication Bolshevik (No. 22, Page 51) asserted that “The masses know that peace is

And so, By December 21, 1954, we find the on October 7, 1961, the West Coast Communist Daily Worker pointing out newspaper of the Communist Party, to its readers that “... it's not the People's World, carried an editorial U.N. that merits your scorn and active entitled, “Save the U.N."

And on January 21, 1962, The Worker (no longer a daily) carried an article headlined, “Birchers Take Warpath Against UN Peace Hopes,” to tell the Comrades:
The John Birch Society has instructed its members to prepare a hate campaign against the United Nations. In his secret “bulletin” for members, Robert Welch ... orders his followers to place this anti-United Nations drive at the top of their 1962 political agenda .... It was in the spring of last year that the ultra hate campaign to destroy the United Nations actually began. The origins of this insidious business can be traced to ... a so-called “United States Day Committee,” the purpose of which to replace United Nations Day with “United States Day.
In late 1964 and early 1965 the Xerox Corporation sponsored a television series to present the most blatant sort of U.N. propaganda. In commenting on one of these programs the Communist People's World for January 23, 1965, noted: “It's not a little horrifying that in our country at this time a pitch is needed for the UN and for peace, but that is the case, and we're all for figuratively hitting people over the head with the message. The (Xerox) program did that.”
And on June 27, 1965, Mikhail Sergeyevich Lvov, an official Soviet spokesman on U.N. affairs, told a Moscow Radio audience: “There can
be no doubt that with the United Nations constituted as it is at present, the consistent line of the Soviet Union in pressing for the United Nations to face fully up to the problems of strengthening peace and ensuring freedom is producing more and more positive results." (Congressional Record, August 4, 1965, Page A4317.)
In the Aesopian language of Communism the word peace means “an absence of resistance to Communism.” If it were possible to find an island somewhere on which there had not been even a fist fight for fifty years, that island would still not be "peaceful” to the Communists until it had become completely subjected to their rule. And in light of this Communist use of the word, the following Associated Press dispatch from the Los Angeles Times of April 7, 1970, takes on special meaning:
Secretary General U Thant praised Vladimir I. Lenin, founder of the Soviet Union, as a political leader whose ideals were reflected in the U.N. charter.
Thant released Monday the text of a statement sent to a symposium on Lenin at Tempere, Finland, sponsored by the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization [U.N.E.S.C.O.).*
*It should not surprise anyone
that U.N.E.S.C.O. would sponsor a symposium honoring Lenin. As far back as 1956, the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee noted in its Annual Report for the year: “What appears ... to be by far the worst

former General Secretary of the Communist Party, U.S.A., and twice its candidate for President of the United States, wrote in his book Victory And After: "The American Communists worked energetically and tirelessly to lay the foundations for the United Nations, which
we were sure would come into existence.” And a Preamble to the Constitution of the Communist Party, U.S.A., states that the Party believes "the true national interest of our country and the cause of peace and progress require ... the strengthening of the United Nations as a universal instrument of peace.” Clearly, the belief that the Communists actually oppose the U.N. cannot withstand the massive evidence to the contrary.
In its issue for December 12, 1952, U.S. News & World Report noted: “An informed estimate suggests that as many as one-half of the 1,350 administrative executives in the UN are either Communists or people who are willing to do what they want.” A few years later, on March 22, 1954, the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee reported:
In our investigation of United States citizens employed by the United Nations, we found considerable evidence to indicate that Communists used the same techniques in infiltrating the U.N. Secretariat, as had previously been used in infiltrating the United States Government.
Some of these persons exposed in our Government investigation played key roles in the actual establishment of the U.N. itself as well as the establishment of U.N.'s specialized agencies. (Activities of United States Citizens Employed By The United Nations, Page 9.)
Four years earlier, in 1950, the State Department had issued a volume
danger spot, from the standpoint of disloyalty and subversive activity among Americans employed by international organizations, is UNESCO .... Mr. Pierce Gerety, former Chairman of the International Organizations Employees Loyalty Board ... expressed the opinion that there existed in UNESCO a clique of people who placed the interests of the Communists and Communist ideology above any service to UNESCO, and above their own country.”
In 1962, U.N.E.S.C.O. published a blatantly pro-Communist tract entitled, Equality of Rights Between Races and Nationali. ties in the USSR, the slant of which is well-illustrated by this quotation from Page thirteen: “The Soviet Union is a brotherhood of free and equal peoples comprising 15 sovereign Soviet republics in voluntary association on a footing of complete equality. Under the Constitution of the USSR, each of these republics retains the right to secede from the Union. Each of them embodies the collective will of its people and can decide its own future in entire freedom.”
