Huckabee Calls For Destruction of UN: "It Has Become the International Equivalent of Acorn"
On Saturday, Mike Huckabee gave the keynote address at Phyllis Schafly’s How To Take Back America conference. Huckabee praised Schafly, calling her book “Choice not an Echo” an inspiration when he was a teenager.
Huckabee spent a considerable amount of his address railing against the United Nations, calling it the “international equivalent of ACORN” and demanding that America should withdraw. As Dave Weigel noted, the crowd greeted Huckabee's anti-UN rhetoric with a standing ovation:
HUCKABEE: It's time to get a jackhammer and to simply chip that part of New York City. Let it float into the East River, never to be seen again. [STANDING OVATION] [...]
It’s time to say enough of the American taxpayer dollar being spent that may have had a noble idea, but it has become a disgrace. It has become the international equivalent of ACORN, and it's time to say enough.
