“Get the U.S. out of the U.N. and the U.N. out of the U.S.”

The United Nations was formed in 1945; its headquarters at Turtle Bay in Manhattan was completed in 1952. “Take US out of UN, then push UN out of US” was cited in 1951, before the headquarters’ construction was finished. “Get the United States out of the United Nations” usually comes first, followed by “Get the United Nations out of the United States.” A 1955 freedom rally demanded: “We get the U. S. out of the U. N. and the U. N. out of Ihc U. S.” The Daughters of the American Revolution and the John Birch Society both used the slogan in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

The United States is still in the United Nations, and the United Nations’ headquarters is still in New York City. The slogan is still used.


Wikipedia: United Nations
The United Nations Organization (UNO) or simply United Nations (UN) is an international organization whose stated aims are facilitating cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights, and achievement of world peace. The UN was founded in 1945 after World War II to replace the League of Nations, to stop wars between countries, and to provide a platform for dialogue. It contains multiple subsidiary organizations to carry out its missions.

Wikipedia: United Nations Headquarters
The headquarters of the United Nations is a distinctive complex in New York City, United States, that has served as the official headquarters of the United Nations since its completion in 1952. It is located in the Turtle Bay neighborhood of Manhattan, on spacious grounds overlooking the East River.
