Pledge of allegiance is Nazism. Swastika = S-letters for socialism. See Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy.
If everyone knew the truth about the pledge of allegiance then no one would perform it and it would cease to exist. Here is another photo of people in a concentration camp in the USA. http://rexcurry.net/pledgeofallegiance-japanese.jpg
It shows the early stiff-arm salute of the PoA, which was the origin of the salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party. The Pledge was written by a socialist in the nationalism movement (Francis Bellamy) and he was cousin and cohort to Edward Bellamy, a notorious socialist in the nationalism movement. They and their fellow-travelers influenced the National Socialist German Workers Party, its dogma, symbols and rituals. See the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets").

Swastika symbolism and the Maybach emblem expose frightening chapters of history and symbology. http://rexcurry.net/maybach-car-pictures.html
The Maybach's double-M symbol exposes the swastika as double-S letters for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers Party, as shown in the work of the noted symbolist Dr. Rex Curry. http://rexcurry.net/maybach-car-pictures.jpg
The following is another graphic example of the symbolism of the swastika. http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg
The following is an additional graphic examples of the symbolism of the swastika http://rexcurry.net/swastika-vw-logo.JPG
Volkswagen also supports Dr. Curry's discoveries. http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a.html
Audi also provides support. http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html
Trabant provides additional evidence in support. http://rexcurry.net/trabant-sachsenring-rex-curry.html
The Krit Motor Car Company of Detroit supports Dr. Curry's discoveries. It was an American car that bore a swastika long before it was associated with German cars and the Volkswagen VW. http://rexcurry.net/krit_motor_car_company_detroit.html
The Volkswagen logo is alphabetical symbolism of the meshed letters "V" and "W" that exposes the swastika as intertwined "S" shapes symbolizing "Socialism" under German National Socialism.
Dr. Curry's work has been announced and verified on Wikipedia. A recent article at opinioneditorials.com reports on the many references to Dr. Curry's research and discoveries on Wikipedia. Even Wikipedia founder Jimbo Wales has publicly noted Dr. Curry's influence on Wikipedia. Wikipedia writers use Dr. Curry's work without attribution in apparent attempts to bolster their own credibility.
Everyone concedes that the swastika was the symbol of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP). In that sense, the swastika was a symbol of socialism, at least for the NSGWP.

Swastika pictures 2 http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg
Swastika images 3 http://rexcurry.net/fascism-third-reich-hitler-nazism-swastika456.jpg
The remaining question is the question that everyone else overlooked. Did the NSGWP (or its leader), in using the swastika symbol for the National Socialist German Workers' Party, ever see it as S-letters for their "socialism"? The Volkswagen symbol answers that question in the affirmative.
Maybach-Motorenbau GmbH was founded in 1909 by Wilhelm Maybach. The company was originally a subsidiary of Luftschiffbau Zeppelin GmbH. Today, the brand is owned by Daimler AG and based in Stuttgart.
The company first built an experimental car in 1919, with the first production model introduced two years later at the Berlin Motor Show.
The start of the Maybach's double-M symbol is not certain. However, the double-M symbol is shown in a poster for the Maybach W3, built in 1921 and shown at Berlin Motor Show.
Between 1921 and 1940, the company produced various vehicles. The company also continued to build heavy duty diesel engines for marine and rail purposes.
Maybach contributed to the German National Socialist war effort in World War II by producing the engines for many mobile artilleries and tanks such as Jagdpanther, Panther and Tiger tanks with the Maybach HL230.
Today, Audi is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group.
Germany in the 1930's often used symbols for letters and words. Common symbols under the National Socialist German Workers' Party often used the "S" shape, including the side-by-side use in the "SS" Division and the overlapping use in the swastika. The German word was not "swastika," but "Hakenkreuz" ("hooked cross" or "armed cross").
Hitler was aware of the practice, and perhaps the source of the practice, in that he evolved "Adolf Hitler" into "S Hitler" in his own signature. It was a manner of declaring his socialism every time he signed his name and it was equivalent to signing "Socialist Hitler."
It is part of growing evidence that supports the discovery by the historian Rex Curry (in the book "Swastika Secrets") that the Hakenkreuz, although an ancient symbol, was used also to represent "S" shapes for "Socialism" and its victory under the horrid National Socialists. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html
Dr. Curry is also famous for proving that the USA's early Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the straight-arm salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers' Party. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-pledge.html
The following is a frightening example of a photograph of the early Pledge of Allegiance http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg
The following page shows more examples of the stiff-arm salute of the early Pledge of Allegiance http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html
For additional proof of the use of the "S" shapes of the "sieg" runes see a newly discovered youth's book at http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a3.html

The National Socialist German Workers' Party began in 1920, and achieved electoral breakthroughs in 1930, and dictatorship in 1933.

How tall was the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party and where did he live? http://rexcurry.net/USA-pledge-of-allegiance-rexcurrydotnet.jpg
He was about this tall ( finger on upper lip ) and he lived over there ( early American salute in the Pledge of Allegiance ).
(the above joke is also delivered as: Do you know how tall Hitler was and where he lived?

KRIT Motor Car Company swastika inspired S-letters for "Socialism" under Nazis (National Socialist German Workers Party)?
Swastikas as S-letters for "socialism" under the Nazi Party or National Socialist German Workers Party
The swastika was on American cars (e.g. the Krit Motor Car Company of Detroit) long before it was associated with German cars and the Volkswagen VW. http://rexcurry.net/krit_motor_car_company_detroit.html
Krit might have inspired the use of the swastika by the National Socialist German Workers Party. Many Krit cars were exported to Europe and Australia. On December 29, 1914, a New York Times newspaper article states that the War was responsible for the bankruptcy of the Krit Motor Car Company, to wit: "Lack of business, due to the European war, is given as the cause of the failure."
That means that an American car company was the first to put swastikas on cars in Europe.
The Krit swastika had many similarities to the Hakenkreuze used later by German National Socialists. A photograph of the Krit logo is at this link. http://rexcurry.net/krit-motor-car-company-detroit.jpg
The Krit swastika is very similar to a specific small membership pin used under Nazism. http://rexcurry.net/krit-car-nazi-member-pin.jpg
An important difference between the Krit swastika and the Nazi membership pin's hakenkreuz is that the latter shows how the symbol was turned 45 degrees from the horizontal to represent S-letters for "sozialistische" (socialist) under the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSGWP or NSDAP), as shown in the growing body of work by the symbolist Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets"). http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html
Although an ancient symbol, the swastika was used to represent crossed S-letters for "socialism" under the NSDAP. See the graphic image of the swastika symbolism at http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg
Krit's swastika might have inspired the alphabetical symbolism under Nazism, in that Krit's swastika examines alphabetical symbolism with the four letters K-R-I-T spaced at the four sides of the flat swastika. Adolf Hitler took the same idea another step.
The swastika as alphabetic symbolism was not new. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-hakenkreuz.html
Another photograph of the Krit swastika shows it with eagle wings. http//rexcurry.net/krit-motors-eagle-wings.gif
The Volkswagen VW logo and the Audi logo expose the swastika as intertwined "S" shapes symbolizing "Socialism" for the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party, and provide more support for Dr. Curry's work. http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html
The following is an additional graphic examples of the symbolism of the swastika http://rexcurry.net/swastika-vw-logo.JPG
Before the VW emblem was created, the organization that controlled volkswagen was the Deutsche Arbeitsfront (DAF or German Labor Front) and its logo used a swastika encircled by a cogwheel. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-vw-logo1.jpg
Similar alphabetical symbolism was used under the NSDAP for the "SS" division, the SA, the NSV, et cetera. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-alphabetic-symbolism-nsdap2.jpg
The Trabant car also provides support. http://rexcurry.net/trabant-sachsenring-rex-curry.html
The Krit company existed from July 1909 to 1915. The Krit car was designed by Kenneth Crittenden, who had worked at Ford and Regal.
Although the swastika had a history as a generic "good luck" symbol, that did not hold true for the Krit badge, nor for the badge of the National Socialist German Workers Party. However, the Volkswagen VW badge, based on the swastika philosophically and stylistically, lives on.
New discoveries show that American soldiers used the swastika as their symbol early in World War I, and up to 1941, against Germany. The symbol was used by Americans in the French Escadrille Lafayette, by the 45th Infantry Divison, and on Boeing P-12 planes. http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html
Dr. Curry has previously shown how socialists in the USA originated the modern swastika as overlapping "S" letters for "Socialists" joining together in a utopian "Socialist Society" (decades later, it was used by the National Socialist German Workers Party). During the time when American soldiers adopted the swastika, the symbol was associated in the USA with the growing popularity of "military socialism," a dogma touted by Edward Bellamy, the American author of the international bestseller "Looking Backward," (1887) known as the bible of National Socialism. Edward Bellamy was cousin to Francis Bellamy, author of the Pledge of Allegiance, the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted later by the NSGWP.
The symbol was also famous in the USA as alphabetical symbolism for socialism in the Theosophical Society (TS), from 1875. http://rexcurry.net/theosophy-madame-blavatsky-theosophical-society.html
In 1888, the Theosophical Society teamed up with the Bellamy Nationalist movement for military socialism. The "Bellamy swastika" and the "Bellamy salute" spread.

Trabant Sachsenring supports the discoveries of the Symbologist Dr. Rex Curry that the swastika, although and ancient symbol, was sometimes used to represent crossed "S" shapes symbolizing "Socialism" for the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party.http://rexcurry.net/trabant-sachsenring-rex-curry.html
Volkswagen also supports Dr. Rex Curry's discoveries.http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a.html
Audi also supports Dr. Curry's discoveries.http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html
The federal government is imposing more sick socialism upon automobiles, and that provides a frightening reminder of similar activity in other police states. The federal government is changing the "GM" symbol to "Government Motors."
An amazing new discovery reveals how the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics adopted swastika-style socialist symbolism from the National Socialist German Workers' Party. http://rexcurry.net/trabant-sachsenring-rex-curry.html
Soviet socialism used the notorious Trabant automobile to popularize the same symbol from German socialism. The Trabant symbol then became a symbol of socialism under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html
Most people have never seen the hood ornament of a Trabant: a stylized "S" letter. It is from Germany's "Sachsenring" and it imitates the swastika's "S" for "socialism." The Trabant symbol exposes the swastika as intertwined "S" shapes symbolizing "Socialism" under German National Socialism.http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg
A Trabant symbol is shown at this link http://rexcurry.net/trabant-sachsenring.gif
Volkswagen is part of a similar story. The VW's emblem's alphabetical symbolism still mimics that which was used in the swastika under German National Socialism.http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a.html
Audi is part of a similar story of alphabetical symbology during the same period. http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html
The VW Beetle is often discussed without mentioning its manufacturer Volkswagen. The Trabant is similar in that it is often discussed without mentioning Sachsenring, even though the logo is an "S," and not a "T" for Trabant.
Trabant's Sachsenring company was named after the Sachsenring (circuit or ring) race track. Sachsenring (German: Saxony ring) is located in Hohenstein-Ernstthal near Chemnitz in Saxony, in eastern Germany.
The first race in the area of Sachsenring was held on 26 May 1927, on a 8.7 km layout on public roads, leading also through the village of Hohenstein-Ernstthal itself. It was dubbed "Sachsenring" in 1937 during the height of German National Socialism. In 1920, the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP) began; in 1930, it gained electoral breakthroughs; in 1933 it imposed dictatorship; and in 1939 it became an ally with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in a pact to divide up Europe, and they invaded Poland, and WWII spread. At that time both countries praised each other's "glorious socialism." They became part of the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million killed under the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; ~50 million under the Peoples' Republic of China; ~20 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html
Germany in the 1930's often used symbols for letters and words. Common symbols under the National Socialist German Workers' Party often used the "S" shape, including the side-by-side use in the "SS" Division, and the overlapping use in the swastika. Similar alphabetical symbolism was used by Volkswagen (as in the story referenced above).
The leader of German National Socialism was aware of the practice, and probably the source of the practice, in that he evolved his own signature to begin with a large "S" shape. It was a manner of declaring his socialism every time he signed his name. http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a4.html
To understand the Trabant it is necessary to delve into its history.
Before the war, and under the National Socialist German Workers' Party, the Sachsenring company operated. Under German National Socialism, car and vehicle manufacturers were required to follow the command of the socialist government in the manufacture of products.
Socialism destroys the scientific method that normally exists in a free society. http://sam.carana.googlepages.com/trabantmodelofscience
When the war ended the sick socialism continued and Sachsenring, in East Germany, became part of the German Democratic Republic (GDR or DDR) under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The factory was still required to follow the command of the socialist government in the manufacture of cars. Initially the factory was used to produce much needed tractors and trucks. The factory became part of IFA which was the socialist state-owned group which ran all of the East German motor industry. Soviet Socialism adopted and popularized the swastika-style symbolism of the socialist car.
Soviet Socialism adopted the swastika style symbolism of the Trabant, and also perpetuated the terminology of the National Socialist German Workers' Party, calling the GDR "our Socialist Fatherland" under the rule of the East German SED (Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands: the German Socialist Unity Party). The new socialist government interpretated the history of East Germany as the crown and climax of Marxist-Leninist dogma.
As with the red flag of the swastika, red flags continued to be a must. Statues of Lenin and Marx joined the new red flags. Citizens showing disrespect or even reluctance to accept them were, as in the previous socialist era, automatically suspect to the regime and therefore at risk.
The two Germanies were re-unified on October 3, 1990. It was a remarkable disintegration: not with a bang but a whimper, East Germany (the German Democratic Republic) disappeared from the political map. An entire society (soon joined by the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) was consigned (as author Stefan Heym quipped) to the "garbage heap of history."
The USSR had a prior history (pre-dating German National Socialism) of utilizing the swastika as its symbol of socialism. http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika-cccp-sssr.html
After the earlier Soviet Socialist use of the swastika, the fad then grew in Germany, where the symbol was popular with socialists and became the sign of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP).
Both countries followed the earlier lead of socialists in the USA in using the swastika as a symbol for socialism. http://rexcurry.net/theosophy-madame-blavatsky-theosophical-society.html
That socialist dogma is the same dogma that was touted in the late 19th century by National Socialists in the USA. Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance") and his cousin and cohort Edward Bellamy (author of the pathetic book "Looking Backward") wanted the government to take over all food, clothing, shelter, schools, goods and services and create an "industrial army" to impose their "military socialism." See the video documentary athttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4
That was the motiviation behind Francis Bellamy's "Pledge of Allegiance" to the flag, the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party (see the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry, author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets" and "Swastika Secrets"). http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance2.jpg
Today, the flag symbolizes authoritarianism in the USA. The historical facts above explain the enormous size and scope of government today, and the USA's police state, and why it is growing so rapidly. They are reasons for massive reductions in government, taxation, spending and socialism.
Help fight the enormous socialism that continues to grow in today's government.

[The following was written and published before the publication of Martin Winkler's book]
Roman Salute: Cinema, History, Ideology is a book that hasn't even been published and it has already been debunked. The book is an incomplete rehash of work published years ago by Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets").
Also see the video documentary on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsZxRPdDQHo
The author of "Roman Salute" is Martin Winkler of George Mason University, and his work has been exposed in the past in a professorial debate challenge (2006) by Dr. Curry.
The publisher of Winkler's book is Ohio State University Press (publication expected in 2009). OSU Press would do better to publish the work of Dr. Curry.
"Pledge of Allegiance Secrets" by Dr. Curry exposed the the modern origin of the so-called "il saluto romano" from the USA's Pledge of Allegiance and from the military salute that was used as the first gesture of two gestures in the pledge. Francis Bellamy (author of the pledge) was not attempting to do a "Roman salute" nor a "stiff-arm salute" and he never said such a thing. Bellamy did say that he was attempting to do a military salute that was then stretched out toward the flag. In practice, that became the stiff-arm salute because bored children simply extended Bellamy's initial military salute outward to point at the flag.
The raised-arm salute was used in America well before the creation of the National Socialist German Workers Party, and before Mussolini began his political career as a socialist journalist. http://rexcurry.net/fascism=socialism.html
That the pledge's author (Francis Bellamy) was raised in Rome N.Y., contributed to the use of the term "Roman salute" in the myth. In that sense, it WAS a "Roman" salute -from Rome, N.Y.- but not an ancient Roman salute from Italy. see http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter1a1f.html and http://rexcurry.net/pledgerome.html
One reason that Winkler failed to make the discoveries that were made long ago by Dr. Curry is because Winkler writes in a manner that is unscholarly, unprofessional, misleading and propagandistic. Winkler writes as if he is covering-up the actual full name of the group that called itself the "National Socialist German Workers Party." Winkler writes as if he is unaware that the group did not use the hackneyed shorthand terms that Winkler prefers to substitute for the actual name of the horrid group. How often has Winkler ever written the actual name of the group about which he writes? http://rexcurry.net/pledgehoratii.html
Winkler's misleading method with hackneyed shorthand terms was evident years ago in his abstract for the American Philological Association (APA). That piece also indicated that Winkler was unaware that the early Pledge of Allegiace used a stiff-arm salute. http://rexcurry.net/roman-salute-martin-winkler.html
During that time, Dr. Curry's work became known to Winkler and worldwide showing the origin of the stiff-arm salute from the pledge in the United States. Dr. Curry pointed out the misleading terms in Winkler's APA piece and Winkler's apparent ignorance of the Pledge's early stiff-arm salute, and the fact that the Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the mis-named "Roman salute" from the Pledge's initial military salute. http://rexcurry.net/roman-salute-martin-winkler.html
Dr. Curry's work also appeared in a Petition for Writ of Certirorai to the United States Supreme Court. http://rexcurry.net/pledgewonschik.pdf and http://rexcurry.net/pledgewonschik.html
Winkler's method with misleading slang terms continued years later in "Gladiator: Film and History." That book also had revealing omissions by Winkler: No mention of his own earlier faulty work regarding the "Roman Salute."
Winkler's method with misleading shorthand terms continued in a poster for Winkler's speech that stated "The Roman Salute: Origin and Spread of a Fascist Symbol." The poster and Winkler's use of the word "fascist" in the speech perpetuate ignorance (or a cover-up?) of the fact that the straight-arm salute adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party originated from a National Socialist in the USA (Francis Bellamy) in 1892. Winkler seems ignorant of (or covering up) the fact that German National Socialists did not interchange "fascist" for the actual name of their party. Winkler's bad writing habit perpetuates widespread ignorance in that regard. See the poster at http://rexcurry.net/socialist-salute3.jpg and the more accurate version at http://rexcurry.net/socialist-salute.jpg
It is embarrassing that the poster for Winkler's speech shows the painting "Oath of the Horatii." It is a funny error: As proof of an "ancient Roman salute" the neo-classical painting (from 1784) was, for a time, cited on Wikipedia, the glorified anonymous bulletin board where neo-nazis deliberately post propagandistic lies and delete information about the topics discussed here. There is where that wackiness began. Believe it or don't, Wikipedia continues to use "Oath of the Horatii" to imply proof of an "ancient Roman salute" (It depends upon when Wikipedia is viewed because Wikipedia changes by the millisecond as people literally do cyber-warfare to maintain lies there).
After Dr. Curry pointed out the silliness at Wackipedia, someone there back-pedaled into speculation that the Pledge's early stiff-arm salute was based on the Horatii painting, not caring that Francis Bellamy himself explained the origin of his salute and it had nothing to do with "Oath of the Horatii" by the painter Jacques-Louis David. The back-pedaling went farther with misinterpretation of adlocutio, not caring that Bellamy explained the origin of his salute and it had nothing to do with misinterpretation of adlocutio. Bellamy explained that his salute started with a military salute that extended out toward the flag. Francis Bellamy never used the term "ancient Roman salute" ever for any reason (the concept "ancient Roman salute" did not exist during Bellamy's time). Indeed, Jacques-Louis David himself never referred to "Oath of the Horatii" as an "ancient Roman salute" nor did David use the term "ancient Roman salute" ever for any reason (the concept "ancient Roman salute" did not exist during David's time). The "Oath of the Horatii" shows three people reaching for weapons. http://rexcurry.net/pledgehoratii.html
Winkler never asks the question "what is the oldest example of 'Oath of the Horatii' used to explain the Roman salute?" Why does Winkler fail to ask that obvious question? That is the question Dr. Curry asked and answered. Does an old example not exist? Is the oldest source the wikipedia effort to cover-up Dr. Curry's work?
Winkler seems unaware (or he deliberately ignores) the fact that the term "Roman salute" came after Francis Bellamy from Rome N.Y., (as shown by Dr. Curry) and even later than that after the socialist Mussolini adopted America's mechanical stiff-arm salute in Rome, Italy. Winkler has written a book about the "Roman Salute" in which Winkler never examines the etymology of the phrase about which Winkler wrote. Winkler never asks the question "when was the term 'Roman salute' first used?" That is the question Dr. Curry asked and answered. The Oxford English Dictionary supports Dr. Curry's work. http://rexcurry.net/roman-salute-oxford-english-dictionary.html
It is odd that Winkler asks Dr. Curry's question for the term "passo romano" (Roman step), although Winkler does not ask Dr. Curry's question for the term "Roman salute." Here are the two questions: (1) when was the term "passo romano" first used?; (2) when was the term "Roman salute" first used? Winkler only answers the "passo romano" question and Winkler's answer is similar to the answer that Dr. Curry has already given: they are of recent development, and decades later than the Pledge of Allegiance. Winkler writes "Mussolini introduced [the Roman step] in 1938, after being 'greatly impressed by the [national socialist] parades he had witnessed" on his state visit to Berlin the year before. [citation omitted]. At that time Italian-German relations were so close as to make the origin of the new step obvious to all Italians. Nevertheless it, too, was officially propogated as a Roman custom and accordingly called the passo romano ("Roman step").
Winkler's misleading method continues in his book "Roman Salute: Cinema, History, Ideology," including Winkler's misleading hackneyed slang, on display in the Table of Contents. One example is the title for chapter 3 ("Raised-arm salutes in the United States before fascism: from the Pledge of allegiance to Ben-Hur on screen") that seems designed to deceive. Winkler and Wikpedia play word games with the hackneyed term "fascism" in order to cover-up the National Socialist German Workers Party and its connection to older American National Socialism and the pledge from the Bellamys. If the raised arm salutes in the United States existed before "fascism," as Winkler claims, then they existed during the enormous growth and popularity of National Socialism touted by the Bellamys, and they influenced the dogma, symbols and rituals of the National Socialist German Workers Party later (Winkler's "fascism"). Winkler wants to pretend that America's National Socialism was not "fascism" so that Winkler can evade the connections.
Martin Winkler continues and expands the long tradition in the United States of covering-up the Pledge's putrid past.
People who refused to perform the stiff-arm salute and robotic chanting to the nation's flag were persecuted, prosecutied, expelled, beaten and even lynched. Eventually, that was happening at the same time in the United States and in Germany. But it started in the United States in 1892 with the Bellamys. They wanted government to take over education under their National Socialism, and eliminate all of the better alternatives, and when the government granted their wish the government's schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy. See the photograph of a segregated class forced to perform the mechanical chanting and America's straight-arm salute at http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg
Winkler's table of contents for another chapter builds upon the widespread ignorance by using the term "Nazi" instead of the actual name of the German party.
Winkler writes as if he is unaware that Mussolini was a notorious socialist journalist when he acquired the nick-name "Il Duce" (the Leader), and that is also the time when Mussolini learned of America's stiff-arm national socialist salute. http://rexcurry.net/mussolini.html and http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter2a1b.html
The above is also why Winkler failed to make another discovery that was made years ago by Dr. Curry: the symbol used by the German national socialists, although an ancient symbol, was altered for use by socialists as overlapping S-letters for their "socialism" (It was turned 45 degrees to the horizontal and always oriented in the S-letter direction). http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html
Winkler writes as if he is unaware that Francis Bellamy and Edward Bellamy were cohorts in preaching about "Christian socialism," "military socialism," and "national socialism." The Pledge and the early stiff-arm salute were part of their efforts toward those goals.
The above is also why Winkler failed to make another discovery that was made years ago by Dr. Curry: Francis Bellamy (who grew up in Rome, N.Y., authored the "Pledge of Allegiance," and was the origin of the stiff-arm salute used in the early Pledge) and Edward Bellamy (Francis' cousin and the author of "Looking Backward") were notorious national socialsts in America who advocated "military socialism" and an "industrial army" and they influenced the National Socialist German Workers Party and its dogma, symbols and rituals. The Bellamys advocated a government takeover of education, and when the government granted their wish, government schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy. People who refused to perform the stiff-arm salute and robotic chanting to the nations flag were persecuted. That happened in the U.S. before it happened in Germany (and elsewhere) and it even outlasted German National Socialism. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-pledge.html
The above is also why Winkler failed to make another discovery that was made years ago by Dr. Curry: the stiff-arm salute developed from the Pledge because the Bellamy dogma of "military socialism" caused Francis Bellamy to begin the Pledge with a military salute that was then extended out toward the flag, as a gesture to the flag. In practice, annoyed students, forced into robotic ritualism, simply extended the military salute outward with the palm remaining down. Thus, the straight-arm salute developed as an extended military salute from the Pledge of Allegiance. http://rexcurry.net/i-pledge-allegiance-to-the-flag.jpg

Imagine something that did not happen: Beginning in 1892, teachers in government schools in the United States began each day by holding up a picture of someone with a raised arm and the teacher would raise his arm and instruct all students to do the same. What would Winkler have said about the influence of that behavior in the United States and worldwide? Winkler would have a lot to say about it. Now consider something that actually did happen: Beginning in 1892, teachers in government schools in the United States began each day by chanting robotically with one arm raised toward the flag and they instructed all students to do the same. What does Winkler have to say about the influence of that behavior in the United States and worldwide? Winkler does not have much to say about it.
Winkler's book "Roman Salute: Cinema, History, Ideology" overlooks and misleads regarding the "history and ideology" part in the title. Winkler missed the one actual analogy between "ancient Rome" and the origin of the stiff-arm salute in the Pedge of Allegiance: authoritarianism (then and now), militarism, oppressive taxation and the decline of a once-great society.
Winkler overlooked the "big picture" that Dr. Curry uncovered years ago: How the pledge, the salute and the socialist dogma behind it caused the current massive spending and debt in America, domestic military socialism, nazi-style numbering of babies with lifetime tracking (the "social security" ponzi scam) and the police state in the United States that continues to grow today, along with government schools that have mechanical chanting every day for twelve years of each child's life (only the misnamed "Roman salute" has changed).
Winkler overlooked another big picture that Dr. Curry uncovered years ago: How the pledge, the salute and the socialist dogma behind it influenced totalitarianism worldwide, including the National Socialist German Workers Party and its dogma, symbols and rituals.

A book review in the "Bryn Mawr Classical Review" supports Dr. Rex Curry's comments about Martin M. Winkler's book "The Roman Salute: Cinema, History, Ideology." The review was written by Michelle Borg, University of Sydney, and in criticizing Winkler she states:
"The author [Winkler] first turns to the early form of the Pledge of Allegiance, which originally included an entirely similar gesture to the one that came to be used by Fascists and Nazis. This uncomfortable association is not explored in depth; Winkler simply asserts that the gesture had no political or historical connotations in the United States." http://www.bmcreview.org/2009/08/20090845.html
Winkler's work was debunked before it was published (see the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry, author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets"). Comments have noted some of that with this criticism: "The author [Winkler] first turns to the early form of the Pledge of Allegiance, which originally included an entirely similar gesture to the one that came to be used by Fascists and Nazis. This uncomfortable association is not explored in depth; Winkler simply asserts that the gesture had no political or historical connotations in the United States." Winkler simply will not address the work that preceded him by Dr. Curry. The Pledge was the origin of the so-called "Roman salute" and it was the origin of the salute adopted later by socialists in Germany and Italy. The Pledge was written (1892) by Francis Bellamy, cousin and cohort of Edward Bellamy, both self-proclaimed national socialists in the USA. Bellamy explained the origin of his gesture: It began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the flag. It was also the origin of the Olympic salute. Winkler cannot bear to discuss that because Dr. Curry has long ago explained it all. That is why Winkler evades the national socialist dogma of Germany and Italy, and insteads uses the unscholarly and misleading slang "Nazi" instead of the actual name of the group "National Socialist German Workers Party." He also evades the fact that Mussolini was a self-proclaimed national socialist when Mussolini learned of the stiff-armed salute, which originated in the USA's Pledge. There has been an outstanding debate challenge against Winkler (in which Dr. Curry has prevailed by Winkler's default spanning years in which Winkler has lost/conceded) and Winkler is just not going to face the issues. He will perpetuate ignorance about the topic and not inform people.

Today, Americans are persecuted for performing the early American salute. They are persecuted in ways that are similar to how Americans are persecuted for refusing to perform the current American salute and the Pledge of Allegiance (especially children persecuted in government schools / socialist schools). http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg
Here is a video of someone being persecuted for the American salute. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2487274467636094262
The incident resulted in litigation that went to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. http://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/media/view_subpage.php?pk_id=0000003646
The blogger Becky Johnson discusses it at http://beckyjohnsononewomantalking.blogspot.com/2009/07/9th-circuit-court-hears-arguments-on.html
That blog utilized the tags David Beauvais, Kate Wells, Scott Kennedy, Tim Fitzmaurice, Robert Norse, Nazi Salute.
It would be funny if the fellow how performed the gesture argued that to the Court (that he is being persecuted for the early American salute), however he is probably ignorant of it. However, the 9th Circuit is not ignorant of it because they have a brief by the Attorney and historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets") in the case of Michael Newdow v. Carey that is currently before the 9th, and that brief is visible online. That brief explains the early American salute.

Also he performed it wrong anyway, with his left arm.

Minersville School District v. Gobitis, 310 U.S. 586 (1940) William Gobitas, Lillian Gobitas & Pledge of Allegiance
Much has been written about atheism and atheists. Most work would improve with greater details about contemporary atheists in the news.
For example, an atheist has litigated against the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Many atheists and socialists object to the Pledge of Allegiance only because of the phrase "under God." Many atheists and socialists enjoy the court case of Minersville School District v. Gobitis, 310 U.S. 586 (1940) and the Barnette case from the U.S. Supreme Court because those cases led to the holding that no one can be compelled to recite the pledge of allegiance. http://rexcurry.net/super%20kids.jpg
Yet, the documentarian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets") has pointed out that when Billy Gobitas and Lillian Gobitas (Gobitas was the actual spelling of their name) refused to say the pledge, it was 1935 and the phrase "under God" was not in the pledge and the pledge used America's outstretched arm salute (it was the origin of the salute adopted by the National Socialist German Workers’ Party salute), and the Gobitas children refused to pledge because they were Jehovah’s Witnesses and they believed that the pledge and salute, which were created by a socialist, glorified government. http://rexcurry.net/edward%20bellamy.jpg
People similar to the Gobitas kids were being persecuted in Germany and the United States at the same time.
Many atheists and socialists would be happy to merely remove "under God" from the pledge and return to the conditions that the Gobitas children fought. To learn more see http://rexcurry.net/pledge1.html
Some atheists seem intellectually dishonest in droning on about the two-word deification in the pledge, while ignoring everything else about it.
That is because many atheists are also socialists.
Even though religion has killed many, it does not come close to the worst murders ever committed in the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million killed under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; ~50 million under the Peoples's Republic of China; ~20 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party. http:/

They attempted to move-away from, or de-emphasize religion. The leader of the NSGWP turned the Hakenkreuz into alphabetic symbolism. The symbol was used to represent meshed S-letters for the deadly dogma of "socialism." http://ftp.ij.net/rex/swastikanews.html

After the rise of German National Socialism, the American salute did not quickly fall out of style in that the American salute originated from 1892 and the National Socialist German Workers Party began in 1920 and grew through the 30's and beyond and Congress decided to try to change the gesture in 1942 AFTER the USA became involved in WWII. In reference to America's stiff-arm gesture, some Americans said "We did it first" and "its our salute" and everyone did not immediately embrace the hand-over-the-heart.
The stiff armed gesture developed because the Bellamy salute began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the flag. Also, Francis Bellamy (and his cousin Edward Bellamy) were not only socialists, they were nationalists, similar the 2 words added to the German Workers Party by Hitler. http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg
Using the outstretched salute is NOT a tradition that goes all the way back to the Romans, but that is a common myth.

Pledge of Allegiance by Francis Bellamy (& Edward Bellamy) is Nazism & Swastika = S letters for "Socialism"
This photograph http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance2.jpg (and many others on the same web site) illustrates a difference between the Pledge of Allegiance in the past and in the present. In the past, there was time when the flag and pledge occurred outside, and no flag was inside the classroom(s). That practice emphasized the militaristic nature of the Bellamy dogma of "military socialism" in that children either 1) assembled and waited outside before school began, enduring injurious weather, until the forced ritual chanting was led by the teacher, or 2) they entered the school and then, at a designated time, they marched outside into injurious weather. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-images.html
It is difficult to say whether a common modern practice is better or worse: there is often a flag in EVERY classroom. State government dictates the expenditure and the size of the federal flags and their ubiquitous placement. The omnipresent flag is viewed all the time by all children. The orwellian ritual then occurs via a barking or pre-recorded voice over an intercom, often accompanied by martial music and even bizarre video piped over school televisions.
The pledge tracks the book "1984" by George Orwell (1949). Orwell describes a government that uses these slogans: Freedom is Slavery; War is Peace; Ignorance is Strength. The government bamboozled Americans into believing that collective robotic chanting in government schools daily is a beautiful expression of freedom. Chanters let the catch-phrase "with liberty and justice for all" delude them from the totalitarian reality of the behavior. Government schools maintain strength by maintaining ignorance about the pledge's true history. Wars over the pledge coincide with never-ending wars abroad under Bellamy's military socialism in the USA.
Many local government schools cannot drop the pledge routine even though they so desire (because the pledge is dictated by state law in many states). That is unfortunate in that the pledge has acheived a result opposite that intended: It is an opportunity for students to show contempt, loathing and hatred. The pledge is the outlet whenever a student refuses to stand, or stands silently with arms crossed and a glare in his/her eye. Every student can do so every day. Some students continue to chant, and that highlights the divisiveness and puts the spotlight on the rugged individualists. It is an opportunity that they would not otherwise have in such a stark in-your-face manner. But the Pledge of Allegiance gives them that spotlight daily.
It is easy to see why many schools would consider it to be better to drop the attempted brainwashing method entirely, rather than have it used so easily to its opposite impact, with the tables turned.
Student feelings of hate might be directed toward many targets: government, teachers, military socialism, regimentation, taxation, mounting future debt, social security numbers.
Defying the pledge is a shorter (and quieter) version of the "Two Minutes Hate" in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984). The Two Minutes Hate (or "Two Minutes' Hate" or "Two-Minute Hate") was a daily period in which people must watch a film depicting enemies and express their hatred for them.
The film version of Orwell's book portrays the brainwashing technique imposed upon people in Oceania, attempting to whip them into a frenzy of hatred and loathing toward the current enemy. At the end, the mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausted viewers chant "BB" (Big Brother) over and over again.
It is evolving differently for the Pledge of Allegiance. Job Conger can tell you as a substitute teacher that often a lethargic assemblage of 14-year-olds rises, faces the flag at the start of the class day, and listens to the words that come out of the substitute teacher’s mouth, spoken in unison with the crackly sound whispering from an antique speaker that shares the words broadcast by a student announcer in the government school’s main office.The mass affirmation of allegiance has become irrelevant to crowds of 70,000 lining NASCAR tracks, and slightly smaller crowds attending ball games and puck games in the USA. Thanks to this website, many students (and adults) know more than the typical government-school teacher knows about the pledge. Many people know that the teacher and the office believe that they are REQUIRED by law to perform the chanting on cue. The teacher and school officials should wonder why any students even continue to stand.

Roman Salute: Cinema, History & Ideology myths & Martin Winkler & Robyn Blumner (St. Petersburg Times) debunked
Roman Salute: Cinema, History & Ideology myths & Martin Winkler & Robyn Blumner (St. Petersburg Times) debunked. http://rexcurry.net/roman-salute-martin-winkler.html The Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) as shown by Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets"). The Pledge's early right-arm salute was not an ancient Roman salute. The ancient Roman salute is a myth. The 'ancient Roman salute' myth came from the Pledge. A new documentary video movie exposes the shocking facts on youtube The original Pledge began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the flag. In practice the second gesture was performed palm down by children casually performing the forced ritual chanting. Thus, the stiff-arm salute resulted from the military salute extended outward in the pledge. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg The Pledge was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy. Francis was raised in Rome, New York, not in Rome Italy. Francis was cousin to Edward Bellamy, and they promoted military socialism. Learn how Martin Winkler (in the book Gladiator: Film and History) was debunked.
