I don't know why Texans are so goddamn scared of the UN. There's something deeply wrong with those people. Is it the sun? Is it the Tex-Mex food? Fumes from the refineries? What the hell is it?

The story began to swirl in September with an emailed piece titled "The New Battle of the Alamo" by George Rodriguez, former president of the San Antonio Tea Party.
Rodriguez said he wrote his report as a "cautionary piece," having lost faith in local elected leaders. In his piece, he wrote that the Alamo "may fall under U.N. influence." Knowing that the Alamo stands for freedom, Rodriguez said, he did nothing wrong.
"I'm just constantly saying 'may' or 'might,'" in the article, Rodriguez said late Wednesday. "I'm never once saying that this is going to happen. We need to be aware."



He's just asking questions, ya know.

Along the same lines as Glenn Beck might ask why it's so bad he raped and murdered a girl in 1990.

I mean, come on. Let he who was not a rapist murderer in 1990 cast the first stone.

Rumors have circulated in recent weeks, via email and social media, that the U.N. would manage the Alamo if it - and San Antonio's four other Spanish colonial missions - are granted World Heritage status.

People that believe this shat should be mocked, and mocked openly. If anyone suggests that isn't polite, they too shall be mocked.

It wouldn't surprise me if they blew up the Alamo to protect it from the UN.

"The New Battle of the Alamo
by George Rodriguez
Texans should be aware that San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro may have started a new "battle of the Alamo". He has made some initial moves to allow the United Nations to influence and even manage the Alamo, and the San Antonio Express/News is doing a soft sell of the idea in their Sunday, September 15 opinion page. It has been reported that Mayor Castro and his close ally, City Councilman Diego Bernal, have been meeting with U.S. Department of Interior officials about the future of San Antonio's historical missions. Castro wants to make the missions a greater tourist attraction by designating them national and world cultural treasures.
But there is the catch in designating the Alamo and the other missions "world cultural heritage" sites. Castro and Bernal want the United Nations' UNESCO or United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to do the designation. The UNESCO is a specialized agency of the U.N. whose purpose is to contribute to peace and security by promoting international collaboration through education, science, and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, the rule of law, and human rights along with fundamental freedom proclaimed in the U.N. Charter. According to their charter, UNESCO's aim is "to contribute to the building of peace, the eradication of poverty, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue through education, the sciences, culture, communication and information".
It is ironic that while many Texans across the state talk about the dangers of the UN's Agenda 21, the Alamo, the very symbol of Texas liberty and freedom, may fall under U.N. influence. Castro wants to UNESCO's World Heritage Committee to help manage the Alamo. The World Heritage Committee has a list of recognized sites that are managed through legal agreements regarding cultural heritage for protecting diversity. Quite simply, the U.N. would manage the Alamo under these agreements.
The influence of the U.N. has already been felt when there was a proposed hotel tower for the old Joske's building near the Alamo. But because it could have jeopardized the World Heritage Site status for the Alamo and the other four missions, the proposed hotel tower was nixed. The U.S. National Park Service, which plays a key role in nominating U.S. sites, warned Castro that such a skyscraper so close to the Alamo could be a deal breaker. Apparently, the U.N.'s World Heritage Sites had threatened to yank the status because of the potential for new development. Thus, the U.N. influenced a local issue and decision."

I recently took the family to Head Smashed In Buffalo jump, a UNESCO world heritage site, and The New World Order presence was quite alarming. Your not crazy tea-baggers, you'll have to scream louder about this atrocity so the rest of 'Murica hears you.

Well, not until the world has to send in peacekeepers to stop the chaos from the ensuing wars over drinking water and racial cleansing.

Maybe they're afraid 3,500 screaming Mexicans will attack it and take the place over?

Probably. It should be a Tea Party shrine to those who would rather die than pay taxes, and they're afraid of mexicans already.

That's not very fair and balanced.

fark at least that would mean that someone smart and competent is in charge. Instead we got Ted farking Cruz and Teabaggers trying to crash the economy because reasons.

Who the fark cares? Just because it's someone's opinion, doesn't mean it's valid and free from criticism.

They are wrong. Pure and simple. To say anything else is to be deluded, and to encourage such stupidity should be a crime.

Is that what it stands for? Wasn't it part of Mexico at the time?
 
2013-10-31 07:49:44 PM
Seriously, you cannot even give these farkers good stuff for free. They are actually clinically insane at this point.

This designation = extra funds, more visitors, more kudos for the state, influence against the site being abused in future, it is 100% all good and will make damned money for the state.

Seems the hidden story is someone wants to damage the site with commercial development and sees this stuff as a barrier to that. THEY are the enemy of your history and culture, not the UN who have no interests whatsoever in it.

Don't understand what problem a Texan has with UNESCO?

According to their charter, UNESCO's aim is "to contribute to the building of peace, the eradication of poverty, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue through education, the sciences, culture, communication and information".

Pretty much every single noun in that statement would give a Texas teabagger an aneurysm.

I thought it stood for Tejanos too lazy to do their own work 'cause they'd rather own slaves than abide by the conditions required to get that free land?

Really?  I thought the Alamo stands for a rebellion over the fact that the Mexicans were planning to outlaw slavery.

Stupid teabaggers --

Texas is still running the ground floor of the Alamo.

The UN has jurisdiction only over the basement.
 
2013-10-31 07:53:01 PM
What amuses me about all this is sorta like "empty suit dictator atheist Muslim Obama"

Some days, the UN is a good-for-nothing group that can do nothing more than strongly worded letters.

Other days, they are a terrible global organization bent on world domination.

It was a mission built by the Spanish Empire for converting native people to Catholicism.

So, yeah. America, freedom, etc.

The Mexican government had outlawed slavery before they ever allowed Americans to move in and become Texans.

The Texan revolution was done in large part because the new Mexican citizens wanted slavery established.

I'm more offended that anyone's considering making the Alamo a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the first place. It's a stupid building with a history of oppression, defeat and stupidity.
