Rex Curry, the historian referenced in your post, is a national treasure! It reminds me of this quote: "Remove the pledge from the flag; remove the flag from schools; remove schools from government." http://rexcurry.net Dr. Curry is the historian who showed that the American socialist Francis Bellamy's Pledge of Allegiance to the US flag was the origin of the Nazi salute and Nazi behavior (e.g. robotic chanting to flags) under Hitler's German socialism. German socialists used the Nazi flag's symbol to represent crossed "S" letters for their socialism (that is another one of Dr. Curry's jaw-dropping discoveries).
Good to hear that Dr. Curry is cited above. Thanks for the post and good luck Pointer Institute for Media Studies!

the "pledge not to pledge" (allegiance to the flag). It is unfortunate that
modern flag Nazis still persecute people about the pledge in the USA's
growing police state.
allegiance-flag-nazis.htmlNews reports from December 23, 2005 state that Cameron Frazier refused to
stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance at Boynton Beach High School and
it sparked a Constitutional battle against his teacher and the Palm Beach
County School Board. The 17-year-old junior claims in a federal lawsuit that
he was ridiculed and punished when he twice refused to stand for the
pledge during his fourth-period algebra class.
News reports from March 1, 2005 stated that an incident occurred in Brick
Township, New Jersey. A video of the shocking behavior is at
allegiance-mantel.wmv Similar to some other
states, NJ has a morning paramilitary drill that includes chanting the
Pledge of Allegiance and the "National Anthem." A videotape was made by a
student in the class of Stuart Mantel. The class started out that morning
with Mantel yelling "I don't want to hear a sound! Not a sound! Morning
exercises will come on, you will stand, you will stand quietly, you will pay
attention! Any Questions!? ... Now stand up and keep your mouths shut!"
Students stood up as the national anthem began playing. In the middle of
the "The Star-Spangled Banner," Mantel walked over to Jay and demanded that
he stand up. Jay silently refused, and Mantel yelled again, "Stand up!" Jay
then said "I don't have to stand up." To which Mantel insisted "You have to
stand." Jay said, "No I don't." Mantel then reached over and pulled Jay's
chair out from under him. Jay responded to Stuart Mantel's outrageous
behavior by asking Mantel "Are you serious?", to which Mantel yelled "I am
damn well serious." Superintendent Thomas L. Seidenberger held office at
stop the pledge of allegiance and what it causes
The Pledge has a long history of persecution and violence. Francis Bellamy
(the Pledge's author) supported a government takeover of education. The
government's schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as
official policy. The USA's behavior was an example for three decades before the Nazis.
As under Nazism, the Jehovah's Witnesses, and blacks and the Jewish and others in the USA attended government schools that dictated segregation, taught racism, and persecuted children who refused to perform the straight-arm salute and robotically chant the Pledge.
There were acts of student violence, teacher violence, police violence and mob violence. There were arrests and prosecutions. Children were taken away from their parents on the government's claim of unfit parenting if the children were not forced to pledge. Some kids were expelled from government schools and had to use the many better alternatives. The government schools then persecuted those non-government schools.
The Pledge routines are part of the USA's growing police-state. The insane government in the U.S. could cause comatose persons to Pledge dis-allegiance, desecrate the flag, and recite a declaration of independence. Remove the Pledge from the flag, remove flags from schools, remove schools from government.
Fight the flag hags and their flag fetish. Government's schools should not teach kids to verbally fellate flags each morning. It is like a brainwashed cult of the omnipotent state. For adults it is childish. Remove the Pledge from the flag, remove flags from schools, remove schools from government. Shocking facts were exposed by the historian Rex Curry about the Pledge's putrid past. As a libertarian lawyer, Curry provides pro bono services at schools and events nationwide to educate the public about the news.
1. Dr. Rex Curry showed that the USA's first Pledge of Allegiance used a straight-arm salute and it was the origin of the salute of the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis). Professor Curry helped to establish that it was not an ancient Roman salute, and that the "ancient Roman salute" is a myth. http://rexcurry.net/pledgesalu
2. The Pledge began with a military salute that then stretched out toward the flag. Historic photographs are at http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.ht
itary.html Due to the way that both gestures were used, the military salute led to the Nazi salute. The Nazi salute is an extended military salute.
3. Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance") and Edward Bellamy (author of the novel "Looking Backward") and Charles Bellamy (author of "A Moment of Madness") were socialists. Edward and Charles were brothers, and Francis was their cousin. Francis and Edward were both self-proclaimed National Socialists and they supported the Nationalism" movement in the USA, the "Nationalist" magazine, the "Nationalist Educational Association," and their dogma of "military socialism," and Edward inspired he "Nationalist Party" (in the USA) and their dogma influenced socialists in Germany, and the Pledge was the origin of the Nazi salute. "Nazi" means "National Socialist German Workers' Party."
A mnemonic device is the swastika. Although the swastika was an ancient symbol, Professor Curry discovered that it was also used sometimes by German National Socialists to represent "S" letters for their "socialism." Curry changed the way that people view the symbol of the horrid National Socialist German Workers' Party. Hitler altered his own signature to use the same stylized "S" letter for "socialist" and similar alphabetic symbolism still shows on Volkswagens.
Dr. Curry showed that many modern myths about swastikas are based on the false belief that Nazis called their symbol a "swastika." German National
Socialists did not use the word "swastika," but called their symbol a "Hakenkreuz." Professor Curry showed that many modern myths rely on a false
belief that Nazis called themselves "Nazis" or used some other term (Party members referred to themselves as "National Socialists" and did not use the term "Nazis").
