Pledge of Allegiance to the flag The Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of Adolf Hitler's "Nazi" salute under the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis).

Francis Bellamy & Edward Bellamy touted National Socialism in the USA decades before their dogma was exported to Germany.
The swastika, although an ancient symbol, was also used to represent "S" letters joined for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis), similar to the alphabetical symbolism for the SS Division, the SA, the NSV, and the VW logo (the letters "V" and "W" joined for "Volkswagen").
Francis Bellamy & Edward Bellamy advocated the police state in the USA and they influenced the NSDAP, its dogma, symbols and rituals. and
The stiff-arm salute was NOT an ancient Roman salute. The "ancient Roman salute" myth came from the USA's Pledge of Allegiance.

It explains the USA's police state.

Francis Bellamy (cousin of author Edward Bellamy) was a socialist in the Nationalism movement and authored the Pledge of Allegiance (1892), the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted much later by the National Socialist German Workers Party. See the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry.

The early pledge began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the flag. In practice, the second gesture was performed palm-down with a stiff-arm when the military salute was merely pointed out at the flag. Thus, the military salute led to the Nazi salute in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the United States.

It was not an ancient Roman salute. That is a myth debunked by Dr. Curry, who showed that the myth came from the Pledge.

American national socialists (including Edward Bellamy), in cooperation with Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society, popularized the use of the Swastika (an ancient symbol) as a modern symbol for socialism long before the symbol was adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) and used on its flag.

The Bellamys influenced the National Socialist German Workers Party and its dogma, rituals and symbols (e.g. robotic collective chanting to flags; and the modern use of the swastika as crossed S-letters for "Socialism" under German National Socialism). Similar alphabetical symbolism was used under the NSDAP for the "SS" division, the "SA," the "NSV," et cetera and similar symbolism is visible today as the the VW logo (the letters "V" and "W" joined for "Volkswagen").

The Bellamys wanted the government to take over all food, clothing, shelter, goods and services and create an "industrial army" to impose their "military socialism." See the video documentary at

It is the same dogma that led to the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million killed under the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; ~50 million under the Peoples' Republic of China; ~20 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

Today, the flag symbolizes authoritarianism in the USA. The historical facts above explain the enormous size and scope of government today, and the USA's police state, and why it is growing so rapidly.  They are reasons for minarchy: massive reductions in government, taxation, spending and socialism.

Journalists, politicians and pundits stand together and sing their praises to the gods state.

"I took my children out of the government's schools because of religious differences.  The government thinks it is God and I don't." - unknown.
Every monrning American children are taught to surrender their critical facilities and worship government.

Government wants you refer to it as "God." However, some government officials prefer that you spell it with a small "g", as they want to appear humble.
Politicians put "under God" in the pledge in order to cover up their belief that God hates them.

Socrates (Greek: Σωκράτης, Sōkrátēs; c. 469 BC–399 BC) was forced to drink hemlock because he did not recognize the Gods recognized by the state and because he corrupted youth.  In a similar way, people have been lynched and imprisoned for refusing to worship the state and its God via the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag. [Note the Greek "S" letter (sigma) in Socrates' name and see The Roman philosopher Seneca attempted to emulate Socrates' death by hemlock when forced to commit suicide by the Emperor Nero.]

In other difficult time, Roman emperors told the population that the Roman gods had been angered because the empire had tolerated Christianity. The people were taught to cry "Christianos ad leonem" (Throw the Christians to the lions) against the scapegoats. The officials would spare the lives of Christians who swore allegiance and offered incense to the Emperor. Those who refused were declared disloyal traitors who were planning revolution against the state. The refusal to pledge allegiance was a continuing bewilderment to Marcus Aurelius and the Romans.

The refusal to pledge allegiance was a continuing bewilderment to socialists in the USA, the USSR, and Germany. It was a puzzle to Stalin, Mao, Hitler and to politicians in the USA.

The fawning pledge to the flag combines with the increasingly surreal homage that Americans now pay to government. It is annoyingly sanctimonious and melodramatic. The deification is as dangerous as it is infantile. Robotism for children, and megalomania for government.

Many people find it odd that muslims pray daily facing mecca.

When government becomes God and replaces family: It is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. It knows best what we need and what must be done. We must trust in its absolute power, knowledge, and presence in all areas of our lives. For this overseer is the source of justice, truth, wisdom, wrath, and mercy. So it appears big government has become for the American people.

No one needs to be religious to say the following: finding a God in the heavens is far more plausible than finding a God (or even a saint) anywhere along Pennsylvania Avenue.  Finding a God in the heavens is far more plausible than than finding a God in the government of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the Peoples' Republic of China, or the National Socialist German Workers Party.

Decades after the Pledge of Allegiance, the Nazis created their own pledge, and it was a pledge to God and nation. That was quite effective for German National Socialists, so politicians in the United States followed the Nazi path and added "God" to the Pledge of Allegiance.

It is the repulsive religion of Capitolism (the opposite of capitalism). At the Capitol in Washington D.C. the savior-wannabes lord it over us. Five-hundred and thirty-six officials - one at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and the others only blocks away.  Francis Bellamy's Pledge is the worship ritual in the religion of Capitolism. It is the dogma touted by Edward Bellamy in his book "Looking Backward from 2000 to 1887,"  the bible of National Socialism.

The time has come to set aside childish things. (paraphrase from 1 Corinthians 13:11).

H.L. Mencken said: "It is the popular theory, at least in America, that monarchism is a curse fastened upon the common people from above - that the monarch saddles it upon them without their consent and against their will. The theory is without support in the facts.  Kings are created, not by kings, but by the people.  They visualize one of the ineradicable needs of all third-rate men... and that is the need of something to venerate, to bow down to, to follow and obey. ("Prejudices: A Selection" Baltimore: Hopkins ed., 1996, pp. 147-148).

"People in the mass soon grow used to anything, including even being swindled. There comes a time when the patter of the quack becomes as natural and as indubitable to their ears as the texts of Holy Writ, and when that time comes it is a dreadful job debamboozling them." (H.L. Mencken, "On Politics: A Carnival of Buncombe" Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1996, p. 335).

"If America continues to turn its back on minarchy, insisting on a pledge of allegiance to the failed policies of socialism/government, then it will continue to lose ground throughout the world."  - fan

Eventually, American's modern salute - the hand-over-the-heart - will have a reputation as bad as America's early raised-arm salute.

To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical. --Thomas Jefferson

A critic of this pledge expose' wrote to and said: "The Pledge of Allegiance is like basking in the warm glow of a higher intelligence as it envelops you and allows you to become part of its everlasting glory."

Looking Backward from 2000 to 1887 Edward Bellamy


According to the book "Disruptive religion" by Christian Smith, German National Socialists reconstructed the doctrine of providence to place their movement within Protestant narratives. According to the Party, the increasing popularity of the party in the 1930's was in the divine will. Hitler saturated his speeches with images that placed German National Socialism within God's providence, and insisted that his socialism alone recognized the virtuous gifts God had given to Germans. German National Socialists thanked God for those gifts. The Almighty was blessing National Socialism, according to Hilter (Prange 1944:87). Similarly, Goebbels wrote in his diary that both he and Hitler were "instruments of divine will" (Reuth 1993:75).

The symbol of German National Socialism, the overlapping S-letters of the swastika, also drew on Protestant traditions. National Socialists called it a Hakenkreuz (hooked cross), not a swastika. Though critics charged that the bent Christian cross was blasphemous, National Socialists argued that the Hakenkreuz was "the political manifestation of what the Christian Cross intends" (Hitler. See Prange 1944: 88).

"What does Christianity mean today? National Socialism is a religion. All we lack is a religious genius capable of uprooting outmoded religious practices and putting new ones in their place. We lack traditions and ritual. One day soon National Socialism will be the religion of all Germans. My Party is my church, and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel."  Joseph Goebbels, Diary entry for October 16, 1928.

And that gospel parallels Edward Bellamy's "Religion of Solidarity" and Francis Bellamy's "Pledge of Allegiance." 

Today, it is consistent with many people who are zealots about religion and about the Pledge of Allegiance.


Many people were persecuted for refusing to perform the American salute (and the German salute under German National Socialism) during the same period of time.

One example in Germany was Johann Georg Elser, who also attempted to assasinate Hitler at the Burgerbraukeller.

Various witnesses also testified that Elser was a regular at the Burgerbraukeller and would refuse to give the stiff-arm salute in Germany under the National Socialist German Workers Party.  (At that time people in the USA were persecuted for refusing to give the stiff-arm salute under the Pledge of Allegiance. People continue to be persecuted for refusing the Pledge of Allegiance, with a different gesture).

Imprisoned at Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp and later at Dachau, he was kept in isolation and made to eat and exercise alone. Yet he was kept alive for almost the duration of the war. On 9 April, 1945, Special Security Prisoner Eiler (his name was deliberately altered) was executed on the personal orders of Heinrich Himmler. 

See the following on an unrelated note about the Sachsenring Trabant car.


If ignorance is bliss, why aren't there more happy people?

Government and its schools turn "ignorance is bliss" into a terrifying nightmare.  See photos of the stiff-armed salute in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Those who know about the pledge are educating those who don't know about the pledge, and circumventing the government's anti-education system (socialist schools). The Pledge is a Declaration of Dependence. For students in government schools (socialist schools) it is a daily declaration of dependence for twelve years of their lives.

Many criticisms made of religion can also be made of socialism and government schools. James Madison, original mastermind of the Constitution, was an Atheist to the core who loved skewering Christianity. Here is an alteration of one of his famous quotations "Since at least the 1800's the government schools (socialist schools) have been on trial. What have been the fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the administrators, ignorance and servility in the students, in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution."  The original Madison quote was from "A Memorial and Remonstrance Against Religious Assessments" from June 20, 1785.

The pledge to the flag in government schools conjures the Nazi regime's cult of uniformity (and the pledge was its origin).

Pledging Allegiance to the politics of patriotism in America's schools

Better get a bucket.....

My little comrade warriors, please stand for the pledge.

Can you believe that there are people who say that they want to "Keep politics out of schools"? Impossible, as the school system is a government entity.  And a government entity free of politics is, as Russ Roberts says, quite as unthinkable as is a ham sandwich free of pork.

Here is the video for the "Defeat the Debt" Pledge of Allegiance, another improvement on Bellamy's socialist cliche'.

Children: I pledge allegiance to Americaʼs debt, and to the Chinese government that lends us money. And to the interest, for which we pay, compoundable, with higher taxes and lower pay until the day we die. Voice Over: American tax payers owe more than $500 million in interest payments every day to cover our governmentʼs debt, much of that debt is owed to foreign governments.

The Katy Independent School District in Texas issued a statement about parents being able to have their children excused from Barack Obama indoctrination of captive children in government schools (socialist schools). The final sentence of the four-paragraph statement said, “Allowing parents to opt their children out of listening to our president or any other elected official will be honored as we honor requests of those who desire to opt out of saluting our nation’s flag and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.”

A movement must be built and it wouldn't take much to overwhelm the state's capability to govern. The poles used such actions to topple the socialists/communists. The president of Poland said that people had become "ungovernable," lol.


Flaggie the flagy flag waving flag of pledge nazis
A public-affairs propaganda program for kids follows government-school mascot "Flaggy" – a bureaucrat dressed in a foam “Flaggie the flagoty flag” costume – as he travels the country to tell children about the trillion-odd dollars in expanded government theft. With its upbeat music and smiling sidekicks, Flagy helps distract children from the personality-distorting government schools (socialist schools) and the fact that someday they’ll have to repay the trillions in bailouts, bad-debt guarantees, and economic socialism money used to “fix” today’s government-created economic mess. “Look, kids! Here comes Flaggie with cookies and stimulus-funded video games for everyone!"

Teenage pledge activity is a major problem confronting the nation and has led to a rising incidence of governmentally transmitted dis-ease, emotional and psychological injuries, enormous government debt, economic chaos, and the USA's growing police state. Abstinence education programs for youth have been proven to be effective in reducing the government's obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) of robotic chanting and ubiquitous flags in government schools (socialist schools). Abstinence programs also can provide the foundation for personal responsibility and enduring libertarian commitment. Therefore, they are vitally important to efforts aimed at reducing dependency and  increasing adult happiness over the long term.

Washington policymakers should be aware of the consequences of early pledge activity, the undesirable contents of conventional "robotic chanting" education programs, and the findings of the professional literature concerning the effectiveness of genuine abstinence-only programs.  


And if anyone persecutes you for your bravery ask them "Why don't you want America to be free?"

School districts should learn that there's nothing more American than refusing to say the Pledge of Allegiance in school (or anywhere). It was a common form of early civil disobedience, and remains so today. And yet schools often fall into the trap of suspending kids and then looking like unschooled socialists and pledge Nazis by trying to enforce patently unconstitutional rules.


It is cathartic to make fun of government, socialism and the Pledge of Allegiance. It is reminder of ridicule cast at German National Socialists (who adopted the early American salute from the pledge that was written by an American national socialist). Enjoy the humor that remains relevant to today's government in "The Producers" (with "Springtime for Hitler"); "Dr. Stranglove," Charlie Chaplin and "The Great Dictator."


On April 13, 2009, news outlets quoted Justice Clarence Thomas stating “Or how can you not reminisce about a childhood where you began each day with the Pledge of Allegiance as little kids lined up in the schoolyard and then marched in two by two with a flag and a crucifix in each classroom?"

It is interesting to note that Justice Thomas did not mention if he used America's early stiff-arm salute for the pledge.

It is interesing that the cross was with the flag in every classroom, in that a similar practice had been followed under the National Socialist German Workers Party. In fact, German National Socialists did not call their symbol a "swastika," they called it a "Hakenkreuz" (hooked cross). It was also called a hooked cross in the USA. Thus, German National Socialists had a cross ON their flag and in their classrooms.

And the salute used by German National Socialists originated decades earlier in the USA's Pledge of Allegiance, written by Francis Bellamy, a self-proclaimed socialists in the nationalism movement.

Bellamy wanted his Pledge of Allegiance to spread globally and that is why Bellamy's original pledge did not reference the "flag of the United States of America." Bellamy wrote his pledge so that it could be used in any country. He wanted to spread military socialism worldwide. Bellamy also organized a World Youth Congress in 1892.

A change occurred at the first National Flag Conference in Washington D.C., on June14, 1923 and 1924 (with support from the American Legion and the Daughters of the American Revolution): the words "the Flag of the United States" replaced "my flag".

With that change, the pledge emphasized the idea of socialism in one country, or National Socialism.  It was an idea that influenced Stalin, Mao and Hitler.

It is amazing how boring they make history in government schools (socialist schools). No wonder, they throw all the interesting stuff out! They can't dare to tell it!

The lies in history classes at government schools, colleges and universities (socialist schools, colleges and universities) are explained: "A government that has outgrown its Constitutional size cannot afford to talk substantively about its past."

"Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals — that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government — that it is not a charter FOR government power, but a charter of the citizen's protection AGAINST the government." — Ayn Rand

The people who are most authoritarian about the Pledge of Allegiance are also the people who are most ignorant about the Pledge's authoritarian past.

This web site has educated people globally about the Pledge's history. Because of this site, there are many foreigners who know more than the average U.S. citizen knows about the Pledge.

Tim Graham spent two years in the White House press corps and stated that he "noticed that reporters and cameramen were not really comfortable participating in patriotic rituals like the Pledge of Allegiance in the Bush years in East Room ceremonies -- perhaps they equated patriotism with being a Bush supporter?"

Or perhaps they equated the Pledge of Allegiance to a pledge of allegiance for the immoral, illegal and socialistic policies of government and government officials.  That is what the "Pledge of Allegiance" is.

It was not always the case. I grew up like most people, waving the flag and brainlessly regurgitating the mantra that is the Pledge of Allegiance."

The original pledge began with a military salute that then stretched out toward the flag. In actual use, the second part of the gesture was performed with a straight arm and palm down by children casually performing the forced ritual chanting.  Professor Curry showed that, due to the way that both gestures were used sequentially in the pledge, the military salute led to the Nazi salute. The Nazi salute is an extended military salute via the USA's pledge.

Francis Bellamy and his cousin Edward Bellamy called their dogma "Military Socialism." The "swastika building" at the Navy's Coronado Seabees Barracks in California is an odd reminder of the dogma.

The military salute is a sign of submission to a superior officer / commanding officer (in this case the flag / government) whose orders must be obeyed without question.

The pledge and the Bellamy dogma of military socialism explain why Americans today refer to the President as "our Commander in Chief" and behave as if they are all in the military and required to salute.

The Confederate Flag has been denounced by comparing it to the Nazi Swastika Flag.  If the current American Flag (the Stars and Stripes) is compared with the Swastika Flag under the National Socialist German workers Party, then similarities are visible that are more shocking. Socialists in the USA used the American flag to originate the Nazi salute, robotic group-chanting to flags, Nazism, flag fanaticism, and the modern use of the swastika as "S" symbolism for "Socialism." The socialist Pledgeophiles wanted government to take children from parents, and wanted government to take over all schools. When the government granted their wish, the government schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy. It set a horrid example for the world for three decades before the National Socialist German Workers' Party was formed and adopted similar behavior. The bad behavior of socialists in the USA outlasted the German National Socialists by decades. Even after official segregation ended in government schools, the socialist system imposed mandatory busing that destroyed neighborhoods and deepened hostilities.

    There are frightening similarities to the way anti-black laws were imposed in socialized (government) services in the United States and anti-Jewish laws were imposed in socialized (government) services in Germany under the National Socialist German Workers Party.
Similar behavior led to Brown v. Board of Education
Consider also Rosa Parks (December 5, 1955) and the bus boycott

Note that Godwin’s Law ceases to apply when people really act like genuine Nazis, e.g. robotic chanting and by persecuting people for exercise of free speech (e.g. by persecuting students who refuse to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, which was the origin of the stiff-arm salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party).

Rexwin's Law is the loophole to Godwin's Law. The loophole is to always and only use the full phrase “National Socialist German Workers’ Party” in place of the misleading abbreviation "Nazi" that is used almost exclusively by the general public (and by all victims of government schools (socialist schools)) due to rampant ignorance about what the abbreviation abbreviates. Most people do not know the etymology of the shorthand slang "Nazi" and they do not know that members of the National Socialist German Workers Party did not refer to themselves as "Nazis."

Pledging Allegiance: The Politics of Patriotism in America's Schools

The Pledge of Allegiance is a witch hunt that begins every morning in government schools (socialist schools) in the USA.  The witch test was created by Francis Bellamy who touted his self-proclaimed "Christian Socialist" dogma in 1892.

It is the government's obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) of robotic chanting and ubiquitous flags in government schools (socialist schools). Pledging allegiance is the politics of patriotism in America's schools.

Its influence is similar to that upon Ivan Pavlov's dogs.'s-dogs-brainwashing-ivan-pavlov-socialism.html

The pledge was the origin of the straight-arm salute adopted decades later by German National Socialists.

People who refused to partake in verbally goosestepping to the flag were persecuted. Anyone refusing to perform the stiff-arm salute and mechanical chant to the national flag was expelled or worse. That was the flag of the USA and the German swastika flag (in Germany it was not called a "swastika," it was a "Hakenkreuz" meaning hooked-cross, a type of cross). It happened at the same time. The USA's flag ritualism was only one swastika short of being there. However, the USA's bad behavior was started by American National Socialists three decades before it was adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party, as shown in the work of the documentarian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets"). Violence and lynchings occurred in the USA and in Germany.  The violence in the USA over flag ritualism predated that of Germany by decades.

It is the way that Americans pray to their criminal politicians as if they were saints (satans?).

The dogma behind the USA's daily domestic terrorism was the same dogma behind the socialist crusades and inquisitions of the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~20 million slaughtered under the National Socialist German Workers' Party; ~60 million under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; ~50 million under the Peoples' Republic of China.

The government schools (socialist schools) in the USA imposed segregation by law, and taught racism as official policy, and their behavior outlasted German Socialism by decades. Even after the official racism in government schools ended in the USA, it was replaced by forced busing and that heightened hostilities and destroyed neighborhoods.

Many people have marveled at Adolf Hilter's "hypnotic" powers and his propaganda skills, as if he was the first of his kind as head of the National Socialist German Workers Party. Adolf Hitler's propaganda had already been pioneered by Francis Bellamy, Edward Bellamy and American socialists. They put the government's fasciated flag over schools, in classrooms and everywhere.

They even worked to put flags (and chanting to flags) in churches in another eerie parallel followed later by socialists in Germany.

Francis Bellamy's original Columbus Day program was a blueprint of nationwide propaganda for socialism in government schools. They dictated daily robotic chanting and puerile adulation. People who refused were persecuted. As the government's schools spread, segregation was imposed by law and racism was taught as official policy.

"An unintended consequence of the Pledge Of Allegiance is that it is a frightening reminder of the large value of the Bill Of Rights - especially the Second Amendment."

The Pledge Of Allegiance is Anti-American.

The Pledge of Allegiance is identity theft.

Many students (and adult Americans) mumble over the oath or cross their fingers while saying it. But many in the "land of the free and the home of the brave" have the courage to refuse it and to openly oppose it.

Due to the USA's growing police state, the country's motto continues to be tweaked. Here is the latest proposal: "America: the least worst place!"

This ain't hell, but you can see it from here.

The Pledge is the government's way of telling you that it does not trust you and that it thought you were a liar yesterday when it made you chant about allegiance.  It will feel the same way about you tomorrow when it makes you do it again. And the next day. And so on, and so on.......

The Pledge is the government's paranoia. It is the government's hate speech against little children (and the parents who raise them).

The Pledge is the type of robotic daily degradation that explains heavy drug use, alcoholism and other self-destructive behavior in students, and ex-students (adults). It turns Americans into the Rude Mechanicals.

The Pledge began in 1892 and alchohol prohibition began in 1919.  The Bellamys supported old prohibition and they would have supported America's current war on individual liberty: modern prohibition.

Francis Bellamy, after he wrote the Pledge of Allegiance, was asked "Are you on drugs?!?!" To which Bellamy replied "I am the drug. Take me."

Today, when teachers command students to chant the pledge / drink the Kool-aid, many students respond "Are you high?!?!"

Socialism / Government is the opiate of the masses.

In the movie "Matrix," the character Morpheus: You take the blue pill and the story ends. You wake in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. (a red pill is shown in Morpheus' other hand) You take the red pill and you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. (Long pause; Neo begins to reach for the red pill). Morpheus: Remember -- all I am offering is the truth, nothing more. (Neo takes the red pill and swallows it with a glass of water).

It is no wonder that the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was infamous for alcoholism (usually via vodka). Drugs are a way to endure the misery and persecution of government and socialism. Vices are a way to escape.

In the same way that socialism inspires depression, hopelessness, despair, violence, it also inspires misanthropy.  Socialism (hatred/destruction of individuality and individual liberty) is misanthropy, and it inspires more misanthropy in response.

The American salute for Americans in WWI from Pledge of Allegiance
Pledge of Allegiance Americans WWI French Children
During WWI the American salute was the stiff-armed salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis). French children greeting American Soliders on their way to the front in France use the American salute for Americans in World War I.

Note the source of the photo: the Committee on Public Information (CPI, the Creel Committee) in the United States. The USA was already a police state and proud of it.

The United States military also used the swastika symbol (hooked cross) in WWI, against Germany et cetera, before the symbol was adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party.

The government in the United States was using the fasces symbol before it was adopted by Mussolini when he was a well-known socialist writer and leader. In 1915, fasces appeared on an Indian head gold coin in the talons of an eagle. In 1916, fasces appeared on the Mercury dime. It was propaganda to con Americans into another one of the many stupid wars that the USA's government either started or joined: WWI (the war to make the world safe for democracy, har har). That propaganda supplemented flag waving, the Pledge of Allegiance (with its stiff-armed salute) and similar silliness.

National Socialism originated in the USA.

Of course, WWI led to WWII and so forth, ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

Dear Gutless Newspaper Reporter,

How does it feel to write propaganda for the government? You are too gutless to do anything else. Here is a glaring example of yours -

You wrote "A few times a year, other students decide not to stand for the pledge, Yancey said, but no child has been disciplined for that choice. A teacher or principal usually talks to the student about their decision."

You are so gutless, you can't bear to ask why students are "talked to" (har har) about not saying the pledge. How about a bit more detail and investigation? Ask for some names and do interviews. Oh, wait you are too gutless. But according to your other propaganda, students are only asked to stand for the pledge. So why are they "talked to" when they don't stand for the pledge?

You wrote: "Yancey said he can only remember three times that a child didn't stand for the pledge while he was principal. And in those cases, he said, it wasn't a philosophical objection."

You are so gutless. How about a bit more detail and investigation? Why is the principal involved when, according to your propaganda, students are only asked to stand for the pledge?  Ask for some names and do interviews about the ones who saw the principal. Oh, wait you are too gutless.

You imagine that no one noticed that you revealed in your article that students are never informed that they do not have to stand.

And you reveal that the true history of the pledge is never taught by the schools nor by you, because, if it were taught, no one would perform the pledge.

And it is clear you are also too gutless to ever print a photo of the early American stiff-arm salute, or discuss that at all.

Oh and this is hilarious propaganda that you repeated: "They usually apologized and never did it again," Yancey said.

You are so gutless. How about a bit more detail and investigation? Ask for some names and do interviews about the ones who "apologized." Oh, wait you are too gutless. But according to your other propaganda, students are only asked to stand for the pledge. So why were they "talked to" so much that they "apologized" (har har)?

Your writing is similar to the writing that existed in that other notorious place that adopted the American stiff-arm salute.

MIRANDA WARNING FOR THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE? In Florida, an ACLU attorney successfully argued a case before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in defense of high school student, Cameron Frazier, who abstained from reciting the Pledge because of “personal political beliefs” and, according to the lawsuit, was “singled out and humiliated” by his teacher.

“We made the case that students must be informed that they are not required to recite the Pledge of Allegiance,” Marshall told

"It’s not a challenge to the content of the Pledge. Only that students be informed that they are not required to recite it."


You are under arrest and in prison (in your government school / socialist school).
You have the right to remain silent, but only in regard to the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag.
That means that you may refuse to robotically and collectively chant the Pledge.
Anything you say can be used against you.
You do not have the right to a lawyer.
Do you understand these rights? (Class robotically chants "yes" and/or "no" in response to the question)

The warnings could be given during the assembly line search of persons and bags (with the x-rays and magnetometers) at the school entrance each day, or barked over the concentration camp speakers during re-education classes, or when the children are marched out of class and lined up for the sniffer-dog searches of their persons and lockers, or simply during any drug raid such as that at Goose Creek High School.


"Dr. Curry showed that the early Pledge Of Allegiance did not use an ancient Roman salute, and that the 'ancient Roman salute'  myth came from the Pledge Of Allegiance."

"Since when have we Americans been expected to bow submissively to authority and speak with awe and reverence to those who represent us?"

The original socialist Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the salute adopted later by the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party. This is the only place that tells you the WHOLE story, not the propaganda version told in government schools (socialist schools).

Court litigation about the Pledge of Allegiance is fascinating. As a pro bono service to help the media and the public understand the bigger issues, Dr. Rex Curry collects astounding historic photos and information about the pledge and this is the only place to find them.  

A recent court case led to scary discoveries about the Pledge’s pedigree. A libertarian made the historic news-breaking discovery that exposed the Pledge as the origin of the salute of the monstrous National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nazis).

A recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court was a blessing in disguise, because it provided a temporary delay and avoided the primary issue.  It allowed the fight to widen against the entire Pledge, not just two words. 

As a libertarian and a lawyer, Dr. Rex Curry is spearheading future court litigation as a pro bono service to the public to liberate Americans from government pushing the totalitarian Pledge.

Some of the litigation started in the case of U.S. v. Wonschik at    

“Pledge II” will be a blockbuster sequel. 

A QUICK SCARY OVERVIEW - about the ideas that inspired the pledge and caused atrocities worldwide.

THE BELLAMY COUSINS - Francis Bellamy wrote the pledge, Edward Bellamy inspired Francis, both were socialists,
and the ideas that inspired them and the pledge caused mass atrocities worldwide.
FRANCIS BELLAMY  - 1855-1931. He wrote the pledge and he died just as his salute & ideas became even more infamous.
EDWARD BELLAMY - 1850-1898. He wrote "Looking Backward" but he didn't have to look back at his socialist slaughter.

BELLAMY'S SPEECH - for the first time ever on the internet: the speech that accompanied the first Pledge of Allegiance.
It is exposed and explained with references to the "Industrial Army" in "Looking Backward." Summary, analysis, quotes, notes, themes.     
THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE - and the worship of government.  A different look at the ideas in the Newdow case.

THE MILITARY-SOCIALISM COMPLEX - even more secret photos of the original military salute.
THE SALUTE - Did government schools in the U.S. inspire the National Socialist German Worker's Party?

STUDENTS DEFY THE SOCIALIST PLEDGE - these resources help them to stop the Pledge in government schools (and out).
MUST YOU OR STUDENTS SALUTE THE FLAG ? or say the pledge in government schools?
THE MYTH OF SOCIALIZATION - government schools teach intolerance and regimentation.
SEGREGATION & RACISM - as official government policy from socialism and its government schools.
SOCIALISM'S RACISM -in government schools abetted by Francis Bellamy.
BELLAMY WAS A BIGOT - and socialism and government schools are inherently racist and bigoted.

ATHEISTS & SOCIALISTS - do they disagree with the kids in the Gobitas Case?  What about the Supreme Court's Newdow case?
REPUBLICANS WHO LIKE THE PLEDGE - are they the Society of Christian Socialists? Which case do they like and why? What do they believe about the Pledge of Allegiance to the Christian Flag?

FANS WRITE scary details about the old pledge & survival tips if you keep reciting.
A GERMAN FAN - says "Thanks!" for showing that crazy socialists in the U.S. created the salute and ideas
before German socialists did it in the National Socialist German Workers' Party.
GERMAN-AMERICAN BUND - the History Channel documentary leaves a lot out.
MORE GERMAN TIES - U.S. socialists promoted racism, eugenics and hatred of individuality & differences.
THE MEDIA - won't show you photos of the U.S. flag's original socialist salute.  And government schools won't either.
INTERNET SEARCHES - pioneers philosophical concepts untouched by media & the public.
REWARD $$$$ - this site pays for historic photos showing the original U.S. flag salute.
POSTCARDS TO SHARE - of the U.S. flag's original socialist salute.
REX'S IMPROVED PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE - for government to pledge to you.

FLAG DAY LETTER - June 14 letter to the editor for you to use to educate the public & media.

It is a myth that the Pledge’s original straight-arm salute is an ancient Roman salute.

To a totalitarian socialist, "liberty and justice for all" means the opposite of what it means for everyone else.
When a totalitarian socialist says "liberty and justice for all" he is telling you that he wants to rob and enslave you.

The only reason that people don't despise the hand-over-the-heart salute is because it wasn't used by the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

Nazi salute

Nazi salute

In addition to the notorious salute, American socialists (e.g. Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy teamed with the Theosophical Society and Freemasons) also bear some blame for the notorious symbol usd by the National Socialist German Workers Party. The same symbol was used by the Theosophical Society during the time when the Bellamys, Freemasons and the Theosophical Society worked together. They also helped spread the stiff arm salute via the Pledge at their meetings.

Dear Professor Curry: I have heard many proposals for altering Pledge laws and the Pledge of Allegiance to make them less offensive. But I always cite the old adage that states: "You can't fix stupid."

Many people have awarded this web site the “Tell-The-Truth-Even-If-Nobody-Believes-It” Award. 

Josh Billings, a nineteenth-century humorist who was almost as well known as Mark Twain in his own time, said “The trouble with people is not that they don’t know but that they know so much that ain’t so.”

According to Billings, a fool is someone who knows a lot of things “that just ain’t so.”

When it’s proven that what you “know” just “ain’t so,” some people become very angry with the lying academic establishment that mis-educated them.  This web site receives hundreds of emails from such people cursing government schools, officials and their ilk.  But a lot of other people become quite hateful and hysterical toward those whose writing shows that they are fools for believing nonsense.

Then there are the “professional historians,” who often behave like insane children whenever “their turf” is invaded by a web site like this.

Those are the same people who become hysterical whenever someone tells the truth about Abe Lincoln (such as his quest to deport all blacks, his white supremacist talk in the Lincoln-Douglas debates, his plan to enshrine slavery in the U.S. Constitution, his mass arrest of political dissenters and the shutting down of opposition newspapers, deportation of an opposition member of Congress, etc.).  In short, people don’t like it much when unarguable facts show that they’ve been made fools of through childhood and through all their adult lives by academic purveyors of lies, myths, and superstitions about American history.
