That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

The Socialist Threat of The Pledge of Allegiance

with 9 comments

Recently, Republican Representative Mike Castle of Delaware was shouted down by a lady in the audience who demanded that he go after Barrack Obama over his citizenship.  She then lead the crowd in a rendition of the Pledge of Allegiance in honor of the “men and women who have done so much for this country from 1776 until the present time.”  It is such an uncomfortable video to watch and I couldn’t believe how naieve and uninformed that audience was.  They really should have known exactly what they were saying before they said the pledge.

The Pledge of Allegiance was written by Francis Bellamy in 1892 for the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s voyage to America.   Bellamy was not only an avowed socialist, but the cousin of Edward Bellamy who is one of the most famous socialists of all.  When you look at the pledge in socialist context, “Indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all takes on a whole new meaning.”  The whole pledge is a rallying cry for redistributing our wealth.   Is it any wonder the amazing number of inroads that socialism has made in this country since the inception of the pledge that America had previously resisted.

It is now time for a  new pledge.  Indoctrinating our school children into the ways of socialism while we have a socialist President is very dangerous.  It’s been enough that schools have lunch programs which hook these kids on government handouts and salisbury steak at a young age.  I have written a new pledge that I hope could someday replace the socialist pledge we now have.

The New Pledge of Allegiance

I pledge of allegiance to this great capitalist nation
and the amazing flag that stands over it,
and the brave soldiers who sacrificed for our rights
like the right to bear arms, private insurance, and Christianity.
We are one nation with the right to rebel or secede
if we don’t like the President.

If the old one sounds better, remember the new one was written by a capitalist and as you get used to saying it, it will seem more normal to your ears.

    “And Leg Men for All”

  3. And how about, “one nation, uber alles, with fundamentalism and civic religion for all” ?

  4. Nate, I can’t believe this, but with Obama involved it must be true. A former Miss Kansas told me that the White Sox are famous for beating up the first base coaches from other teams. How typical of the Kenyan president to bring a thug mentality to America’s past time and to the white house.

  5. I think you’re thinking of the Cub fans who attacked the Dodgers when one of the drunks in the audience decided he wanted the catcher’s hat a few years back.

  6. Nate is always down on the Cubs. Nate…you don’t know what it’s like to go thru life with a goat curse! These players have to play 3 times as hard just to get to last place.

  9. Maybe he’s just a fan of the Royals. It’s also the favorite team for former pageant winners. For obvious reasons.
