The Reverend George M. Docherty, pastor of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington, gave a sermon attended by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. "There is something missing in the pledge," said the Reverend, "something that is the characteristic and definitive factor in the American way of life... [A]part from the mention of the phrase, 'the United States of America,' it could be the pledge of any republic. In fact, I could hear little Muscovites repeat a similar pledge to their hammer-and-sickle flag in Moscow." http://rexcurry.net/pledgegobitas.html
Docherty was right. He was wrong when he thought that altering the pledge solved the problem. The President (Eisenhower) and Congress were wrong along with Docherty. But that was the case nearly every time they made any decision at all about anything.
Docherty was right that the pledge was consistent with the deadly dogma of socialism under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the Peoples Republic of China and the National Socialist German Workers Party (the pledge was the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted later under German national socialism, as shown by the historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets"). http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg
American national socialists (e.g. Francis Bellamy and Edward Bellamy) influenced the National Socialist German Workers Party, its dogma, symbols and rituals. http://rexcurry.net/stopthepledge.html

Stop The Pledge Foundation (STP)
- tinny ray
- I work for the "Stop The Pledge" foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to freeing Americans from the Pledge of Allegiance and its putrid past of robotic nazi-style brainwashing. Americans are ignorant about their Pledge of Allegiance. Please see the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry cited in the book "Libertarian History" by the author Lin Xun. It includes these shockers: (1) that the "Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag" was the origin of the Nazi salute and Nazi behavior; (2) that the military salute was the origin of the Nazi salute (via the military salute's use in the original Pledge of Allegiance) and; (3) Swastikas represented crossed "S" letter shapes for "socialist" under Hitler. At amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/153544326X At kindle https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01J0FV8AQ The National Socialist German Workers Party was influenced by American National Socialists, including Francis Bellamy (author of the Pledge) and his cousin and cohort Edward Bellamy (the author of American books on National Socialism). Remove the Pledge from the flag. Remove the flag from schools. Remove schools from government.
