Stop the Pledge of Allegiance in the New School Year

         Another school year is here and it is time to teach students about their right not to chant the Pledge of Allegiance.  As a libertarian lawyer, I provide pro bono services in schools nationwide (& by this letter) to educate students and teachers about their right to reject robotic ritualism. Please help, and also inform everyone about my new historical discoveries:

1. The USA's first Pledge used a straight-arm salute and it was the origin of the salute of the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis).  It was not an ancient Roman salute.

2. The Pledge began with a military salute that then stretched outward toward the flag.  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. The Pledge's creator was a self-proclaimed socialist in the nationalism movement in the USA and his dogma influenced socialists in Germany, and his pledge was the origin of their salute. "Nazi" means "National Socialist German Workers' Party." A mnemonic device is the swastika (Hakenkreuz in German).  Although the swastika was an ancient symbol, it was also used sometimes by German National Socialists to represent "S" letters for their "socialism."

        The Pledge is part of the USA's growing police-state.  Our insane government 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.

        Government schools will never teach children about their pledge rights, nor the truth about the pledge and its author.

        In the USA, the Bellamy dogma 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. Some kids were expelled from government schools and had to use the many better alternatives.  There were acts of violence. When Jesse Owens competed in the 1936 Olympics in Germany, his neighbors attended segregated government schools where they saluted the flag with the Nazi salute.  The U.S. practice of official racism even outlasted the horrid party.  And the schools and the Pledge still exist. The Pledge is still the most visible sign of the USA's growing police state.

      After segregation in government's schools ended, the Bellamy legacy caused more police-state racism of forced busing that destroyed communities and neighborhoods and deepened hostilities.

      Bellamy was a self-proclaimed national socialist in the USA, with the "Nationalist" magazine, and he preached what he called "military socialism." The federal flag darkens schools because Bellamy wanted government to take over all schools and to eliminate all of the better alternatives.

      Worse, Bellamy wanted the government to take over everything, not just schools. He wanted the government to impose the military system on all of society. School flags are a symbol of  nationalization, militarism, and socialism.

     The Bellamy dogma was the same dogma that led to the "Wholecaust" (of which the Holocaust was a part): 62 million killed under the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; 35 million under the Peoples' Republic of China; 21 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.  It was so bad that Holocaust Museums could quadruple in size with Wholecaust Museums to document the entire slaughter.

     Some schools in the USA are still named after Francis Bellamy.  The Bellamy schools should be re-named because they send the wrong message to children and the community.  It causes emotional distress to children who attend schools named after a man who popularized the Nazi salute and who helped the government institutionalize racism and segregation.  I, and my supporters, will also assist in any legal means to defray the cost of re-naming Bellamy schools.

     If government's schools (and the media) told the true history of the pledge, then no student would chant it. If Americans knew the truth, then the pledge would cease to exist.

    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.
