Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Fox News, whose motto seems to be “all the demagoguery that’s fit to air,” reports that a Republican candidate for Congress is demanding that Rep. Xavier Becerra of California explain why she laughed at a dumbass who demanded that they recite the pledge of allegiance prior to a meeting. You have to see the video first:

Wouldn’t you love to live in a country that was rational enough that everyone would laugh at this demagogic asshole for demanding that grown up adults recite a vow to be patriotic? We don’t live in such a country, of course; we live in a country where such people are actually taken seriously and allowed to dominate the discourse with their childish nonsense.

Here’s what I think should be said every time someone demands that the pledge of allegiance be said, just to turn their own idiocy on them and watch them sputter:

“The pledge of allegiance? Absolutely not. That pledge was written by a socialist. Did you know that? Francis Bellamy was a socialist. And his version of the pledge of allegiance did not include the phrase ‘under God.” And it was originally supposed to be delivered with a Nazi salute. So you can recite the pledge of a godless socialist if you want to, comrade, but I will not join you in the rote recitation of Marxist nostrums or Nazi salutes.”

Somewhere, Glenn Beck is twitching uncontrollably.

    You are correct. In fact, the Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the Nazi salute, and the swastika -although an ancient symbol- was used to represent crossed S-shapes for “socialism” under the National Socialist German Workers Party.

    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. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

    See also http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

    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 VW logo (the letters “V” and “W” joined for “Volkswagen”). http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html

    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. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html

    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.
