From the "Stop the Pledge of Allegiance" campaign (STP) and foundation. The pledge was the origin of nazi salutes and nazi behavior. See the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry. There are those who want to change America and one such person was the author of the Pledge of Allegiance, Francis Bellamy, who created the pledge to promote the worship of government. Pledge supporters grew up chanting the pledge in government schools every morning because they were forced to do so, but did not know the history behind it and they still don't know. The pledge is not heartwarming, it was and is divisive, and it inspired violence, castrations, even lynchings, not grace and charm. The more that is learned about the pledge's putrid past, the more you will see the irony and error in everything that pledge advocates say about the pledge. See the eye-popping old photographs and old movies of children forced to do nazi salutes and chant in unison on command in government schools. That is why the truth is never told about the pledge, because no one would perform it.
