I forecast heavy “Joooo!”iness in the comments:
As I’ve noted before: Besides Mecca, UN headquarters is the only famous landmark that is never destroyed in disaster, monster, or alien-invasion movies. Only two rarely seen B movies have dared to target the thing: a massive mutant vulture bites off the roof in The Giant Claw, and the titular Colossus of New York goes on an all-too-brief murderous rampage in the lobby, beneath the “Isaiah Wall,” which, contrary to popular belief, doesn’t actually exist. Phew!
Both films came out in the 1950s. The UN has not even been in imaginary jeopardy since the Eisenhower Administration, let alone in any danger of real-life demolition. We just bitch about it, like the weather.
Funny: At least our progressive enemies think they can do something about the weather, as stupid as that sounds.
Right-wingers, as usual, seem content (if that’s the word) to do nothing more than moan about an institution we keep insisting is practically satanic.
