"It [the State] has taken on a vast mass of new duties and responsibilities; it has spread out its powers until they penetrate to every act of the citizen, however secret; it has begun to throw around its operations the high dignity and impeccability of a State religion; its agents become a separate and superior caste, with authority to bind and loose, and their thumbs in every pot. But it still remains, as it was in the beginning, the common enemy of all well-disposed, industrious and decent men." ~ H.L. Mencken
The Faux of July is once again making its annual pilgrimage into the hearts and brain dead minds of all good patriotic Amerikans. As it approaches my email box has become flooded with the usual brain dead messages sent by “sheeple” from Sea to Shining Sea. One that grabbed my attention recently was a little gem about the Pledge of Allegiance and how important it was to regurgitate this socialist piece of manifesto during the 4th of July celebration to remind ourselves of all the “freedoms” we enjoy. Seeing as how the Faux of July was creeping its way closer, I thought what better time to examine the Sacred Pledge of Allegiance.
To really understand this I thought it should be broken down line by line so as to fully understand exactly what you are pledging to when you quickly put your beer down, jump to your feet (hand over heart, of course) and recite your undying allegiance to the State.
1: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.” First of all, why would you want to pledge your allegiance to any government? Government’s sole purpose is to steal money, resources and rights from the citizens, so why would anyone want to condone this by swearing their allegiance to this? Not to mention the fact that you are swearing your allegiance to a flag, an inanimate piece of colored cloth.
2: “And to the Republic for which it stands.” Ah yes, now it starts getting good! The Republic…since when? All I hear about is our great Democracy and how we need to spread it to the rest of the world. It would be nice if we were a Republic, but thanks to our great socialist President (and most of the ones that preceded him), we are now a “Dumbocracy.”
3: “One Nation, under god.” Oh boy, my favorite part! To anyone who is not a religious nut, you will have noticed that I used the later modified version of the Pledge. The original version made no references to gods; we have the religiously insane to thank for making this worse than it already was. No, we are not one nation under god, and to say so would be to exclude all the rational people of this country, which is what the “Religulous want, of course. I also don’t like the one Nation idea in whole, because it undermines individual states’ rights.
Bellamy's original Pledge read as follows, the god nonsense was not added until 1954:
I pledge allegiance to my Flag and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
4: “Indivisible.” Probably the second biggest lie (right after under god) in the pledge. Politics, religion, economics, gay rights, abortion and of course wars. We are such a divisive Country that to say we are indivisible is a complete joke!
5: “With Liberty and Justice for all.” It’s always a good idea to end your manifesto with a lie, it keeps the sheep happy. Well it’s a nice thought, but no, the truth is we are a prison nation. The United States has the largest prison population of any other Country on the planet. Not what I would call the “Land of the Free.” Ask the people rotting in jail for a victimless “crime” such as smoking marijuana about Liberty and Justice.
The Pledge of Allegiance is a piece of Communist manifesto that was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, a Socialist that in the early days had students reciting his pledge with what he called the “Bellamy Salute.” You might notice that it resembles that of the Nazi salute…coincidence?
As the Faux of July approaches, I am sure I will be subjected to countless brain dead sheep all jumping to their feet and placing their hands over their heart as they regurgitate the mantra that is the Pledge of Allegiance, and just like in so many years past, I will be the only one sitting while this charade takes place.
