Globalism, for all of its big money backers and high-power promoters, is not appealing to the average American. Americans love freedom, liberty, and national sovereignty. As Phyllis might put it, globalism does not play in Peoria. Unfortunately, the globalists are aware of this ideological disadvantage, so they concocted a diabolical scheme to deceive the American people as to their real intentions.
Taking a page from the federal daycare playbook, they proceeded to “proclaim a ‘crisis,’ wrap it in ‘children,’ and try to intimidate Congress.” The name of their Trojan horse was the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Though the threat was great and the stakes were high, the total and ultimate defeat over this Trojan terror marked a great victory for the Phyllis Schlafly Report and the American people. The argument for national sovereignty was clearly laid out by the widely distributed March 1993 issue of the Phyllis Schlafly Report entitled “The New World Order Wants Your Children.”
Nobody wants to be labeled “anti-children,” much less politicians. So when globalists turned over the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to Congress for ratification, they went so far as to call any congressman anti-children if he opposed the UN treaty. Amidst the deception of the globalists, the Phyllis Schlafly Report cut to the heart of the issue. When conservative congressmen were grasping for some weapon with which to combat the bad publicity thrust upon them by imagery of suffering children, the Phyllis Schlafly Report became that weapon to combat the globalists’ plan.
The treaty’s singular purpose was to give global government control of America’s most foundational building block: her families. While claiming to fill a gap in human rights where children are concerned, it actually would have subjected sovereign American citizens, court decisions, and legislation to the rulings of international courts. Phyllis questioned what these supposed rights might mean when put before an international court of potentially anti-American sentiment.
We cannot let globalists bamboozle people with deceiving terms and manufactured “rights.” The Phyllis Schlafly Report called liberals’ bluff, and we must do the same thing today.
