VIDEO: The Pledge of Allegiance – This is not a form of brainwashing! (Or is it?)

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 below video, is a “twist” on the Pledge of Allegiance.  Although the unthinking American may think that it’s simply patriotic to recite the Pledge when given the opportunity — one must keep in mind not only what the word “pledge” means, but also, what the entire “Pledge of Allegiance” means.  The founding fathers never intended for Americans to pledge their allegiance to the flag OR to the government.  The founders believed that the created was inferior to the Creator.  So just as we are inferior to our Creator, government — being created by The People — is inferior to its Creator:  The People!  Pledging allegiance to the flag (a symbol) or to the Republic (a form of government) is somewhat like expecting God to pledge allegiance to mankind. 

The government is supposed to serve the People, not the other way around!
