No one should stand for nor chant the Pledge of Allegiance because it was the origin of the Nazi salute and Nazi behavior (that is one of the amazing discoveries of the historian Dr. Rex Curry, as described in the many books about Dr. Curry's work). The early pledge began with a military salute that was then extended outward to point at the flag (thus the stiff-arm gesture came from the pledge and from the military salute). The pledge was written in 1892 for kindergartners to be forced to recite under the flag at government schools (socialist schools). The pledge was written by an American socialist who influenced other socialists worldwide, including German socialists (including Hitler) and Italian socialists (including Mussolini). German socialists used the gesture under their flag's notorious symbol (their symbol was used to represent crossed "S" letters for their "socialist" dogma -another of Dr. Curry's discoveries). It was not a benign part of American history either. The pledge was part of a campaign for government to take over education and impose government schools (socialist schools) in the US, to spread Bellamy's socialism. The pledge continues to be the origin of similar bad behavior even though the gesture was changed to hide the pledge's putrid past. The pledge is central to the US's police state and its continued growth.
Well this is unfortunate. i do not think of our Legislature is politically incorrect. Cowards possibly... First, the notion that" all men are created equal" obviously means in the eyes of the Creator. The challenge to men and women and governments is to live up to that ideal. That the founding fathers fell short, or that we as a country have had trouble meeting that challenge is unfortunate and sad, yet in every generation we have had citizens that struggle toward that end and we have made progress in creating equal protection under the law. Our failure to live up to the ideals of the founding Father's, does not invalidate the beautiful challenge and high ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence.
