The Pledge of Allegiance is more Socialist than you thought

When Ron Paul points out towards the end of this video that the Pledge of Allegiance was created by Socialist Francis Bellamy, he isn’t just being provocative. I had forgotten that the original Bellamy salute to the United States flag when reciting the Pledge was the EXACT SAME ONE that the National Socialists (Nazis) used to salute Hitler (and the Italians used for Fascist Mussolini, for that matter). The salute was changed to placing one’s hand over one’s heart only after we entered World War II.

Anthony Gregory wrote a terrific essay on the subject of the statist Pledge of Allegiance a few years ago for lewrockwell.com.
