One of the more bizarre things Ive encountered in my study of the history they dont tellz u
so yeah we all did it, turn to the flag and pledge to it
but the facts around this thing we all did in america are odd
so who wrote it? a communist, (old school overthrow the gov communist way back in later half of 1800's too)
why? well 1. to indoctrinate kids to pledge toward a federal power (one must remember just 20 yrs previous a civil war was fought between state and federal powers, in which the states held legal right to do so, but fed held military/political right to deny people their democratic/voting rights + 700,000 killed to do so, yeah Lincoln's a hero, riiiiiiiiiight) and 2. capitalism, to sell flags, his bro was in the flag making business
so right there...a communist making an indoctrination speech to further capitalist aims, umm huh?
but let's continue in this strangeness...the original salute (you put your hand over your heart now, originally you stretched your arm out in salute....FDR changed that as it was the exact same as the Nazi salute (National SOCIALISTS)
Whats even more odd is that Truman added the words "under God" as an affront to communist worldwide forces. So the initial communist pledge goes 180 degrees in the 50's/
i find it funny, wut do u think?
