At the turn of 1918-19, and unmentioned in "Mein Kampf," Hitler wore a red brassard and supported the short-lived Bavarian Soviet Republic, according to Thomas Weber in the book "Hitler's First War" (Oxford University Press, 450 pages, $34.95). Perhaps that played a role in the German National Socialist leader adopting a swastika symbol that had been used by Soviet socialists on currency with the dates 1917 and 1918. http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika-cccp-sssr.html

See an image at http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika1917-1000b.JPG

Although an ancient symbol, the swastika was used sometimes to represent crossed S-letters for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers Party, as shown by the historian Dr. Rex Curry, author of "Swastika Secrets." http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

Joseph Goebbels, future Propaganda Minister for Germany's National Socialism, compared Lenin to Hitler in a favorable light as late as 1925 according to a New York Times article printed in that year.

JEFFREY JONES & PETER MEYER http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg The Pledge: A History of the Pledge of Allegiance

The Pledge of Allegiance is discussed in yet another stupid book whose authors are so blind they could not even mention the topic of the Pledge as the origin of the Nazi salute. "The Pledge: A History of the Pledge of Allegiance" is the name of the book by the authors Jeffrey Owen Jones, Peter Meyer.

The book is so bad that it raises the question "Do the authors have eyeballs?" Are they not physically capable of viewing the photographs and videos (see below) of the Pledge performed EXACTLY like the Nazi salute, and decades before German national socialists existed?

One wonders if the authors have access to the internet or know how to perform web searches.The photographs, video and information is all there at a moments research.

Here is an example of the authors' idiotic comment, the closest they come to the topic: "The [Jehovah's] Witnesses saw similarities between that enforced action of the Nazis and the mandatory American flag Pledge of the outstretched hand. It made little difference that the American arm salute had the palm facing upward and the Nazi salute had the palm facing downward; the similarities were far too striking to be ignored."

The book raises the question: Are the authors mentally slow? How disturbing to note that the author JEFFREY JONES worked as an editor, television and film producer, journalist, and teacher and he received an Emmy Award for his work in New York local public television and had been published in Smithsonian magazine. the author PETER MEYER is a former News Editor of Life magazine and the author of numerous nonfiction books, including the critically acclaimed Yale Murder, Death of Innocence and Dark Obsession. How did Americans become so stupid?

And they overuse the word "Nazi" in a hackneyed and unscholarly way, apparently never hinting at the groups ACTUAL name (National Socialist German Workers Party) and thus evading any discussion/comparison of the national socialist dogma of Francis Bellamy and Edward Bellamy and their influence upon German socialists, their dogma, symbols and rituals.

The Jones/Meyers book has a badness that is similar to that of Marc Leepson (author of "Flag : An American Biography") and Richard Ellis (author of "To The Flag: The Unlikely History Of The Pledge Of Allegiance").

Do they have the guts to accept the standing debate challenge that Dr. Rex Curry maintains for their ilk? (Marc Leepson and Richard Ellis have not had the guts to do so).

The Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the Nazi salute (and the swastika -although an ancient symbol- was used to represent crossed S-shapes for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers Party).

Francis Bellamy (cousin of author Edward Bellamy) was a socialist in the Nationalism movement and authored the Pledge of Allegiance (1892), the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted much later by the National Socialist German Workers Party. See the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry. http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html

See the image at http://rexcurry.net/pledge_of_allegiance.jpg

The early American stiff-armed salute was not an ancient Roman salute. That is a myth debunked by Dr. Curry, who showed that the myth came from the Pledge and from various facts including that Francis Bellamy grew up in Rome, N.Y., not Rome, Italy, and thereafter the Pledge salute was repeated in early films (some showing fictional scenes of ancient Rome). The reasons above and more led to the American stiff-armed salute being picked up later by German socialists and the National Socialist German Workers Party (under the influence of Adolf Hitler and the U.S. citizen and Harvard grad Ernst Hanfstaengl, a confidant of Hitler) and by Italian socialists under Benito Mussolini (who discovered the salute while he gained power as a socialist journalist writing for socialist newspapers, and later became an ally of the National Socialist German Workers Party). http://rexcurry.net/pledgerome.html

Francis Bellamy never used the term "Roman salute" when describing his pledge's salute and he was not influenced by Jacques-Louis David's painting "Oath of the Horatii." One reason why Francis Bellamy never used the term "Roman salute" in any way is because the concept of the "Roman salute" did not exist when Bellamy wrote his pledge and for decades thereafter.
http://rexcurry.net/roman-salute-oxford-english-dictionary.html

Francis Bellamy clearly explained that his pledge began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the flag. In practice, the second gesture was performed palm-down with a stiff-arm when the military salute was merely pointed out at the flag by disinterested children forced to do Bellamy's programmed chanting daily in government schools. That is how the straight-arm salute developed from Francis Bellamy's Pledge of Allegiance and its use of the military salute (and how the USA's Pledge salute led to the Nazi salute). http://rexcurry.net/pledge_military.html

See the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvDwL553pVM

That the concept of the "Roman salute" did not exist when Bellamy wrote his pledge (and for decades thereafter) also means that the concept of the "Roman salute" did not even exist when Jacques-Louis David lived and painted "Oath of the Horatii" and thus David was NOT thinking of a real or imagined "Roman salute" when he painted the Horatii, nor did David ever use the term "Roman salute." The Horatii lie (that the painting was the origin of the "Roman salute" myth) first appeared on Wikipedia, deliberately fabricated by a liar to cover-up Dr. Curry's discovery that the Pledge was the origin of the Nazi salute. In the painting, 3 brothers are reaching for weapons (and the two figures in back are reaching with their left hands). The same liar who created the Horatii lie had, until he was debunked, previously claimed that the stiff-armed salute was an actual ancient Roman salute, and he posted the lie that Roman statues displaying "adlocutio" (a gesture made by a person speaking) showed "the ancient Roman stiff-armed salute."  The newly substituted Horatii lie has been mindlessly repeated by many people (as the adlocutio lie was repeated and still is) because wakipedia glorifies itself as an encyclopedia, even though it is merely an anonymous bulletin board where anyone can post anything. http://rexcurry.net/pledge_of_allegiance_videos_images.html

American national socialists (including Edward Bellamy), in cooperation with Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society, popularized the use of the Swastika (an ancient symbol) as a modern symbol for socialism long before the symbol was adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) and used on its flag. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

See also http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

The Bellamys influenced the National Socialist German Workers Party and its dogma, rituals and symbols (e.g. robotic collective chanting to flags; and the modern use of the swastika as crossed S-letters for "Socialism" under German National Socialism). Similar alphabetical symbolism was used under the NSDAP for the "SS" division, the "SA," the "NSV," et cetera and similar symbolism is visible today as the  VW logo (the letters "V" and "W" joined for "Volkswagen"). http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html

The Bellamys wanted the government to take over all food, clothing, shelter, goods and services and create an "industrial army" to impose their "military socialism." See the video documentary at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4

It is the same dogma that led to 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

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 minarchy: massive reductions in government, taxation, spending and socialism.

(An intelligent person knows that the first logical question that should arise after someone views for the first time the early American "nazi" salute should be: which stiff-armed salute came first (German or American) and did one cause the other? It is unfortunate to note that in America that question NEVER seems to arise after an American first views the early American "nazi" salute. It proves how stupid Americans have become and it is another reason to end government schools (socialist schools)).

Danny Lampley Arrested: Lawyer Charged With Contempt For Staying Silent During Pledge Of Allegiance


No one should say the Pledge of Allegiance and the only reason anyone does is the government schools keep everyone ignorant about its putrid past. It was the origin of the stiff-arm salute of the National Socialist German Workers Party and otherwise influenced that group's behavior. See the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets").

See the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets").
http://rexcurry.net/pledge-utah.html

TUPELO, Miss. — When a Mississippi judge entered a courtroom and asked everyone to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, an attorney with a reputation for fighting free speech battles stayed silent as everyone else recited the patriotic oath. The lawyer was jailed. Attorney Danny Lampley spent about five hours behind bars Wednesday before Judge Talmadge Littlejohn set him free so that the lawyer could work on another case.
Your readers might also find it interesting that the Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the Nazi salute. Government schools (socialist schools) will never show students the early pledge hand-gesture nor tell them that it was the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party. They will never explain that Francis Bellamy and his cousin (and cohort Edward Bellamy) were national socialists and they influenced the NSGWP and its dogma, symbols and rituals. If they told the truth the pledge would cease to exist (and flag-waving would too). See the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry (author of “Pledge of Allegiance Secrets”). http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html


Boy Scouts thumbnail Cub salute Nazi salute Pledge of Allegiance

New discoveries show that Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, beginning as early as 1907, influenced the use of the Nazi salute and the swastika symbol worldwide. As a consequence, the swastika and the stiff-arm salute became symbols of socialism around the world.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html

The discoveries are in the growing body of work by the historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets") who 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." The swastika symbol had previously been a generic ancient symbol.

Even today, scouts "present the colors" of the flag in ceremonies, just as they did after 1892 (when the scouts used the stiff-armed American salute, also known as the "Bellamy salute").

The early scout behavior is an example of how the American stiff arm salute was spreading beyond use in the Pledge. In the USA, children would dress in uniforms (scouts), wave flags, and were forced to perform the stiff arm salute in government schools that imposed segregation and taught racism, and it occurred long before the behavior was adopted in Germany's Hitler Youth (and by Young Pioneers in the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics).
http://rexcurry.net/scouting-calgaric-lithuanian-klaipeda08-17-1933.jpg

It is frightening to note that the Scouts also used the swastika symbol, including a badge with the swastika, which means they were dashing about the globe (including Germany) wearing paramilitary uniforms with swastikas, doing stiff-arm salutes, waving flags, and (in the USA) chanting mechanically to flags with the pledge's early stiff arm salute, years before, and leading up and beyond the creation of the National Socialist German Workers Party.

Graduates/victims of government schools may find it hard to believe: scouts used the swastika, the straight-arm gesture, robotic chanting, and uniform dress, and they did it all decades before the same was done under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.  The USA was the origin of that behavior under German National Socialism (where the salute was shamelessly stolen from the US). Photograph at http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouts-villefranche.jpg

During the time when Scouts adopted the swastika, the symbol was associated in the USA with the growing popularity of paramilitarism and "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.

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 Bellamy's Nationalist movement for military socialism. The Bellamy swastika spread.

After Francis Bellamy created the Pledge of Allegiance in 1892, the Bellamy salute and the Bellamy swastika spread together globally.

By 1915, the symbol was also widely popular as an ornamental "Good Luck" symbol, as in a 1915 postcard showing the American flag posed favorably with a swastika. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-flag2.JPG

For more information on the swastika as alphabetical symbolism see http://rexcurry.net/swastika-hakenkreuz.html

The swastika was also adopted by American soldiers in the 45th Infantry Division and in the Escadrille Lafayette Americaine during World War I and adorned American soldiers' shoulder patches, flags and planes used in the fight against Germany. http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

In 1921, the swastika's meshed "S" letters acquired the alphabetic symbolism of "Scout Submission" in scouting along with the concept of self-sacrifice (even the ultimate self-sacrifice) because it represented a cross. It is important to note that the Nazis did not call their symbol a "swastika," but called it a "Hakenkreuz," which means "hooked cross" because it was a type of cross. That also tied the scout swastika into the Bellamy dogma which was also known as "Christian Socialism."
Scouts submission badge image http://rexcurry.net/scouting-boy-scouts-girl-scouts-nazi-scouts.jpg

Scout founder Robert Baden-Powell wrote "The Swastika" in "What Scouts Can Do: More Yarns in 1921" and attempted to give the swastika an etymological meaning that is different from the other popular idea that it the symbol meant "well being" or "good luck."  According to Baden-Powell's first comments, the swastika meant "Obedience or Submission, the different arms of the cross being in reality legs in the attitude of kneeling."  Thus, Baden-Powell also recognizes the swastika as a type of cross with religious significance.  Baden-Powell also mentioned in passing Norsemen, Greeks, and myths about Atlantis.
Scouting sacrifice badge photograph http://rexcurry.net/scouts-swastika-thanks-badge-scouting.gif

The swastika was also popular among Girl Scouts via a magazine called "The Swastika" (1914-1918) that stated on each cover "Written, Issued and Read by THE GIRLS' CLUB." Each cover was also adorned with two swastikas in the S-letter orientation.  The October 14, 1914 cover shows a swastika flag. The February 1916 cover shows a girl wearing a hat adorned with a swastika. The membership pin for the Girls' Club was a swastika.

The Girl Scouts program began in 1912 and was founded by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912 and based on the Scouting principles developed by Baden-Powell.

Wikipedia is spreading the news about Dr. Curry's discoveries. Recent articles at opinioneditorials.com report on the many references to Dr. Curry's research and discoveries on Wikipedia. Even Wikipedia founder Jimmy "Jimbo" Wales has publicly noted Dr. Curry's influence on Wikipedia. Dr. Curry's work has been covered and verified on Wikipedia. Some Wikipedia writers use Dr. Curry's work without attribution in apparent attempts to bolster their own credibility.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is a United States Scouting organization, with some presence in other countries. The BSA is the largest youth organization in the United States; over one hundred million Americans have been members. Founded in the USA in 1910, the movement had a registered membership of 2,938,698 youth with 1,146,130 leaders in 122,582 units as of the end of 2005.

The BSA sprang from the concerns of the socialist movement in the United States. It was a concern that grew from the military socialism of Francis Bellamy and Edward Bellamy. The BSA adheres to the Scout method to teach values such as patriotism, citizenship, and outdoorsmanship through a variety of activities, including outdoor activities.

The BSA utilizes uniforms and advancement in rank similar to the military. The BSA operates through units such as troops, packs, and crews.

The socialist movement in the United States was at its height during the early twentieth century. Socialists were concerned that young men had too much individualism and were not learning patriotism, citizenship, and self-sacrifice. The Young Mens Christian Association (YMCA) was an early promoter. Baden-Powell started Scouting in 1907 and the movement began to grow.

In 1909, Chicago publisher W. D. Boyce was visiting London, England where he learned of the Scouting movement. Upon his return to the US, Boyce incorporated the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910. The YMCA became interested in the nascent BSA program and provided support.

The Pledge of Allegiance salute was adopted in scouting as shown in 1934 photos. A further description is below.
Photograph at http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouts.jpg

The original Pledge of Allegiance was created in 1892. The early Pledge of Allegiance used a straight-arm salute that was the origin of the salute used later by the horrid National Socialist German Workers' Party.  The USA was the origin of the Nazi salute, robotic group-chanting to flags, Nazism, flag fetishism, and the modern swastika as "S" symbolism for "Socialism," as shown in they research of the noted historian Dr. Rex Curry.

The original first printing of the Boy's Cubbook in 1930 still showed the use of the stiff-arm salutes by Scouts.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting-cubbook-wolf1930.JPG

This printing was recalled after release by BSA to change to the Cub Scout salute (on page 23). The reason is found in the History of Cub Scouting, published by BSA in 1987. This is a quote from page 13: "The Boy's Cubbook for Wolf rank was published while the first packs were being chartered in April 1930.  It was quickly revised to change the Cub salute.  In the original edition, the salute was the Indian sign for peace, with right arm upraised, palm out.  Apparently leaders saw that the salute was disconceertingly similar to the Nazi salute of Adolf Hitler, who was beginning his rise to power in Germany enroute to engulfing the world in war.  The new salute was the familar two-fingered touch of the right hand to the forehead."  The 1987 explanation is almost as inaccurate as the original 1930 book in repeating the American-Indian myth, and showing complete ignorance of the use of the gesture in the early Pledge of Allegiance.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting-cubbook-wolf1930b.JPG

BSA destroyed whatever original printings they had.

Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts still use a remnant of the early Pledge of Allegiance.  Scouts use a military-style salute that developed from the initial military salute of the Pledge. A stereotypical Scout website states that scouts should memorize the pledge, that the "denner" (den leader) should lead the group in the pledge at meetings, and the web site mimics government schools by providing the usual shallow propaganda about Francis Bellamy and the Pledge

The original pledge began with a military salute that then stretched out toward the flag. In actual use, the second part of the gesture was performed with a straight arm and palm down by children casually performing the forced ritual chanting.  Professor Curry showed that, due to the way that both gestures were used sequentially in the pledge, the military salute led to the Nazi salute. The Nazi salute is an extended military salute via the USA's pledge.

Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance") and Edward Bellamy (author of the novel "Looking Backward") and Charles Bellamy (author of "A Moment of Madness") and Frederick Bellamy (who introduced Edward to socialistic "Fourierism") were socialists.  Edward, Charles and Frederick were brothers, and Francis was their cousin. Francis and Edward were both self-proclaimed National Socialists and they supported the "Nationalism" movement in the USA, the "Nationalist" magazine, and the "Nationalist Educational Association." Edward inspired the "Nationalist Party" (in the USA) and their dogma influenced socialists worldwide (including Germany) via “Nationalist Clubs.” They touted their dogma of "military socialism" and the "industrial army" because they wanted all of society to ape the military.

This may be hard to believe for graduates/victims of government schools: Americans wore swastika shoulder patches and used the striaght-arm gesture, all before the same was done under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.  The USA was the origin of that behavior under German National Socialism.

It is worth noting that Americans still use the greeting "hello" as they did then, and it is related to the German greeting "Heil" and thus to "Heil Hitler."  The term "hello" is used for hailing people and is related to the phrase "Hail to the chief," and to these words: hail, heal, health. It is also related to the term "salud," meaning "health," and thus to the term "salute" and the act of saluting, which included the manner of saying "hello."

The straight-arm gesture had been spread in the USA by the government's takeover of schools. Laws had been imposed that required children in government schools (socialist schools) in the USA to robotically chant the Pledge with the stiff-arm salute.
http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-pledge.html

Francis Bellamy created the pledge to the USA's flag (1892). The early Pledge began with a military salute that then extended out toward the flag into a straight-arm salute.

Francis Bellamy was cousin and cohort to Edward Bellamy, author of the bible of National Socialism "Looking Backward" (1888) an international bestseller. Edward Bellamy's National Socialism movement teamed up with H. P. Blavatsky's Theosophical Society to spread the dogma worldwide. Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society used the swastika as alphabetic symbolism for their utopian "socialist society."

The Bellamy swastika and Bellamy salute spread globally.

Both Bellamys were self-proclaimed socialists in the nationalism movement in the USA, and they called their dogma "military socialism."  They wanted all of society to ape the military and they wanted the government to take over all schools in order to create their "industrial army" and spread their dogma through children.

It is important to remember that the above history would not have been unknown to people associated with the 45th Infantry when the swastika was adopted as its symbol, nor to other Americans who viewed the 45th Infantry's new symbol.

The USA influenced the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the National Socialist German Workers' Party, and the Peoples' Republic of China in their flag fetishism, civilian salutes, military socialism, the use of government schools (socialist schools), and robotic chanting in worship of government and government officials.

The USA originated Nazi salutes, flag fetishism, Nazism, robotic group-chanting to flags, and the modern swastika symbol, as shown in the research of the noted historian Dr. Rex Curry.  Amazing graphic images that prove the point are linked at
http://rexcurry.net/theosophy-madame-blavatsky-theosophical-society.html

Both the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the National Socialist German Workers' Party followed the socialist trend in the USA in using the swastika as a symbol for socialism. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

It all resulted in the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): 65 million slaughtered under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; 49 million under the Peoples' Republic of China; 21 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.  The socialist Wholecaust was the worst loss of human life in history.

The USA is still the worst example in the world of bizarre laws that require robotic chanting to a national flag in government schools (socialist schools) every day for 12 years. It has changed generations of Americans from libertarians to authoritarians. The government bamboozled individuals into believing that robotic group-chanting in government schools is a beautiful expression of freedom.

**********************

Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote about the "civil religion" that inspired the French Revolution and the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, ~60 million deaths; People's Republic of China, ~50 million deaths; National Socialist German Worker’s Party, ~20 million deaths.

In Rousseau's profane brain religion is “a purely civil profession of faith of which the sovereign should fix the articles, not exactly as religious dogmas, but as social sentiments without which a man cannot be a good citizen or a faithful subject.” He added, “It [the sovereign] can banish from the state whoever does not believe them - it can banish him, not for impiety, but as an anti-social being, incapable of truly loving the laws and justice, and of sacrificing, at need, his life to his duty. If any one, after publicly recognizing these dogmas, behaves as if he does not believe them, let him be punished to death: he has committed the worst of all crimes, that of lying before the law.”

The Rousseauist dogma of the “civil religion” was the theology of the socialist Wholecaust. Francis Bellamy, an American proponent of Christian Socialism, boosted the same vision through his Pledge of Allegiance and as a daily religious ritual in government schools (socialist schools). http://rexcurry.net/pledgespeech.html

Compare Bellamy's bloviating to those he inspired later in the National Socialist German Workers' Party. http://rexcurry.net/filmrev-triumph-of-the-will.html

**********************

Mike Bellamy teaches English literature and rhetoric at the University of St. Thomas, while also directing an English Master's Program. Francis Bellamy, who wrote the Pledge of Alllegiance is the first cousin of Mike's great-grandfather. Mike Bellamy has stated that the Pledge was designed as the beginning of a civil religion, bringing the strength of religious belief into "patriotism."  http://www.stthomas.edu/english/faculty/bellamyMichael.htm

In the 1920's Bellamy devised "A Plan for a Counterattack on the Nation's Internal Foes: How to Mobilize the Masses to Support Primary American Doctrines."

He had to be aware of similar attitudes about primary Soviet socialist doctrines under Lenin in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. It was similar to the "counterattack" mentality for primary German and Chiinese doctrines preached later by German socialists under Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers Party, and by Chinese socialists under Mao Zedong. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html    
.....................................................

Many people marveled at Adolf Hilter's "hypnotic" powers of propaganda, as if he was the first of his kind as head of the National Socialist German Workers Party. Adolf Hitler's propaganda had already been pioneered by Francis Bellamy, Edward Bellamy and American socialists. Francis Bellamy's original Columbus Day program was a blueprint of nationwide propaganda for socialism in government schools. They put government flags over schools, in classrooms and everywhere.

They even put flags (and chanting to flags) in churches in another eerie parallel followed decades later by socialists in Germany.

Americans of Japanese descent perform early American stiff-arm salute at internment camp http://rexcurry.net/pledgeofallegiance-japanese.jpg
(Another one of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's socialist programs or pogroms after the government's depression of 1929).

A different photograph is often seen that is a poignant image of Japanese-American children saying the pledge of allegiance (with the hand-over-the heart) soon after President Franklin Delano Roosevelt ordered the relocation of 120,000 Japanese-Americans into internment camps in the West (said hand-over-the-heart photo is by Dorothea Lange). The people who display Lange's hand-over-the-heart pic never show the stiff-armed salute photograph of Japanese-Americans (or any Americans) and never mention Dr. Rex Curry's work showing that it was the origin of the Hitler salute/Nazi salute under the National Socialist German Workers Party. Part of the reason is a media cover-up of the early pledge history, and part of the reason is sheer ignorance of the Pledge of Allegiance caused by government schools (socialist schools) that in turn cover-up the pledge's putrid past. http://rexcurry.net/pledgesalute.html

Lange also photographed Thomas Cave with his social security number tattooed to his arm during the government's depression in 1939 (the year that the National Socialist German Workers Party joined as allies with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in a pact to divide up Europe and both invaded Poland et cetera).
http://rexcurry.net/social-security-number-tattoo3.jpg

Lange, a photographer working for the ominously titled Resettlement Administration (RA), had previously worked for FERA (forerunner of today's FEMA) and later the FSA, took the picture of the socialist slave number under the auspices of the USDA. Before the New Deal, government was much smaller, and, saving the USDA, these "alphabetics" (as they were also called) did not exist. http://rexcurry.net/tattoos.html

Government in the USA subjected many people of many cultures to military socialism and taught them to perform the early American stiff-arm salute (adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party).  Some societies are still performing the early American straight-arm salute, as shown in more photographs.
http://rexcurry.net/pledgesalute.html

The stiff-arm salute in the United States was also adopted as the official Olympic salute and spread internationally. See http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter1a1c.html

Americans of Japanese descent were exposed to the early American stiff-armed salute in government schools (socialist schools) and at internment camps. The following photograph shows an internment camp in the U.S. with Americans of Japanese descent. http://rexcurry.net/pledgeofallegiance-japanese.jpg

Japan still uses the American salute as shown in a video on Youtube.com with the ignorant title "Nazi..er, Roman Salute @ Sports Day"

The early American stiff-armed salute was not an ancient Roman salute. That is a myth debunked by the noted historian Dr. Rex Curry, who showed that the myth came from the Pledge and from various facts including that Francis Bellamy grew up in Rome, N.Y., not Rome, Italy, and thereafter the Pledge salute was repeated in early films (some showing fictional scenes of ancient Rome). The reasons above and more led to the American stiff-armed salute being picked up later by German socialists and the National Socialist German Workers Party (under the influence of Adolf Hitler and the U.S. citizen and Harvard grad Ernst Hanfstaengl, a confidant of Hitler) and by Italian socialists under Benito Mussolini (who discovered the salute while he gained power as a socialist journalist writing for socialist newspapers, and later became an ally of the National Socialist German Workers Party). http://rexcurry.net/pledgerome.html

Francis Bellamy never used the term "Roman salute" when describing his pledge's salute and he was not influenced by Jacques-Louis David's painting "Oath of the Horatii." One reason why Francis Bellamy never used the term "Roman salute" in any way is because the concept of the "Roman salute" did not exist when Bellamy wrote his pledge and for decades thereafter. Francis Bellamy clearly explained that his pledge
began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the flag. In practice, the second gesture was performed palm-down with a stiff-arm when the military salute was merely pointed out at the flag by disinterested children forced to do Bellamy's robotic chanting daily in government schools. That is how the "Roman salute" myth developed from Francis Bellamy's Pledge of Allegiance and its use of the military
salute (and how the USA's Pledge salute led to the Nazi salute). http://rexcurry.net/pledge_military.html

That the concept of the "Roman salute" did not exist when Bellamy wrote his pledge (and for decades thereafter) also means that the concept of the "Roman salute" did not even exist when Jacques-Louis David lived and painted "Oath of the Horatii" and thus David was NOT thinking of a real or imagined "Roman salute" when he painted the Horatii, nor did David ever use the term "Roman salute." The Horatii lie (that the painting
was the origin of the "Roman salute" myth) first appeared on Wikipedia, deliberately fabricated by a liar to cover-up Dr. Curry's discovery that the Pledge was the origin of the Nazi salute. In the painting, 3 brothers are reaching for weapons (and the two figures in back are reaching with their left hands). The same liar who created the Horatii lie had, until he was debunked, previously claimed that the stiff-armed salute was an
actual ancient Roman salute, and he posted the lie that Roman statues displaying "adlocutio" (a gesture made by a person speaking) showed "ancient Roman salutes."  The newly substituted Horatii lie has been mindlessly repeated by many people (as the adlocutio lie was repeated and still is) because wakipedia glorifies itself as an encyclopedia, even though it is merely an anonymous bulletin board where anyone can post anything. http://rexcurry.net/roman-salute-oxford-english-dictionary.html

American national socialists (including Edward Bellamy), in cooperation with Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society, popularized the use of the Swastika (an ancient symbol) as a modern symbol for socialism long before the symbol was adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) and used on its flag. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

See also http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

The Bellamys influenced the National Socialist German Workers Party and its dogma, rituals and symbols (e.g. robotic collective chanting to flags; and the modern use of the swastika as crossed S-letters for "Socialism" under German National Socialism). Similar alphabetical symbolism was used under the NSDAP for the "SS" division, the "SA," the "NSV," et cetera and similar symbolism is visible today as the  VW logo (the letters "V" and "W" joined for "Volkswagen"). http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html

The Bellamys wanted the government to take over all food, clothing, shelter, goods and services and create an "industrial army" to impose their "military socialism." See the video documentary at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4

It is the same dogma that led to 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.

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 minarchy: massive reductions in government, taxation, spending and socialism.


You should enjoy the following esoteric points that are known to almost
no one.  They are virtually unknown due to misrepresentations spread
by wikipedia/wakipedia, the anonymous bulletin board masquerading as an
encyclopedia (It is odd that people cite wikipedia, in that for it to be
cited "intelligently"(?) one would have to include the date and exact time
cited in that wakipedia changes by the milisecond, and is often changed
deliberately to contradict the very reason someone cited it. By citing the
date and exact time it might be possible for a reader to view the history of
changes and find the actual article cited as it existed at that point in
time).

The top esoteric point to be made here is a rebuttal of the bonehead who posted
on wakipedia that the Jacques Louis-David painting "Oath of the Horatii" is
the origin of the stiff-armed salute.  Lots of people repeat that mindlessly because they
see it on wakipedia.

The bonehead who originally posted the horatii lie did it in an effort to
cover-up discoveries by the noted symbologist Dr. Rex Curry concerning the pledge of allegiance as the origin of the stiff-armed salute. It is interesting to note that the wakipedia comment
about the horatii claim never explains that the pledge use of the gesture did not come from the horatii painting, rather the pledge’s use came from the military salute extended
out toward the flag. That and other points are examples of the
deliberateness of misrepresentation in the wakipedia posts, intended to mislead people into
believing that Francis Bellamy (author of the Pledge of Allegiance) was
inspired by the David painting, when there is no evidence at all of that,
just the opposite.

Wikipedia liars also never mention that government schools required
the salute and Bellamy's chanting by law daily for three decades (and
persecuted anyone who refused) before German National Socialists did the
same, because they want everyone to believe it was simply the Horatii
painting that inspired German socialsists, and there was no impact from the USA's
government schools that required the salute and Bellamy's chanting by law
daily for three decades (and persecuted anyone who refused). To the liars,
the Bellamy/pledge activity was of no import and is meaningless, whereas the
horatii painting explains everything, even though no one (e.g. Hitler,
Bellamy, David) mentions it at all in regard to any "roman salute gesture."

Even David never used the term "Roman salute" as the concept of a "Roman
salute" did not even exist during David's life (check the etymology of the
term "Roman salute" -a check that is glaringly never referenced by wakipedia
nor by anyone who repeats the Horatii myth. There is more in a link below).
The Roman myth came from the Pledge of Allegiance.

Francis Bellamy never used the term "Roman salute" as the term did not
exist at the time he wrote the pledge, and he did not reference David,
and he specifically explained how the salute developed: the pledge
began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the
flag. Bellamy did not even intend for the palm do be down, but in practice
it became palm down due to the disinterest of children forced to
perform the robotic daily chanting (they merely extended the military
salute out toward the flag, without turning the palm up). It had nothing to
do with any "Roman salute" myth, because the myth did not exist at the time
that Bellamy wrote the pledge and for some time thereafter.  The "Roman
salute" myth came from the Pledge of Allegiance, not vice versa. There is
more on that in one or more of the links below.

Essentially, the Horatii myth exists because liars on wakipedia used to
claim that the salute actually was an ancient roman salute (and lots of
people repeated that myth and still do because they haven't been updated on
the newer Horatii myth), and when it became embarrassingly obvious that they
could not support that myth any longer, and they could not dispute Dr. Curry’s discoveries about Francis Bellamy's military salute extended toward the flag, they deliberately looked for
another explanation, one of them saw the Horatii painting, saw people with
their arms extended outward in the painting, and they substituted that, in
an effort to pre-date Bellamy (and "substitute" is an accurate word because
they did the same thing when they claimed that the stiff-armed salute actually was an
ancient Roman salute: they would pick out any artistic representation from
ancient Rome that showed any person with his arm in the air, and they would
declare that to be the "Roman salute" (they have done the same now with the
Horatii painting)).

Anyway, now you know some things that are essentially not known to almost
anyone else on the planet.

Here is an article recently sent to another boob who repeated the Horatii
myth because of wakipedia (it repeats some of the points above).

This is posted to correct errors in the January 18, 2008 article
"Questions Answered: Roman salutes..."

The USA's Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the salute adopted
later by the National Socialist German Workers Party.

Wikipedia (Wakipedia) has spread the lie that the gesture came from
the Jacques Louis-David painting Oath of the Horatii. That myth
originated on wakipedia in an effort to cover-up the discoveries of
the noted symbologist Dr. Rex Curry. Even David never used the term
"Roman salute" as the concept of a "Roman salute" did not even exist
during David's life (check the etymology of the term "Roman salute" -a
check that is glaringly never referenced by wakipedia
nor by anyone who repeats the Horatii myth). The Roman myth came from
the Pledge of Allegiance.

Francis Bellamy never used the term "Roman salute" as the term did not
exist at the time he wrote the pledge, and he did not reference David,
and he specifically explained how the salute developed: the pledge
began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the
flag. Bellamy did not even intend for the palm do be down, but in practice
it became palm down due to the disinterest of children forced to
perform the robotic daily chanting (they merely extended the military
salute out toward the flag, without turning the palm up).

The Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the Nazi salute (and the
swastika -although an ancient symbol- was used to represent crossed
S-shapes for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers
Party).

Francis Bellamy (cousin of author Edward Bellamy) was a socialist in
the Nationalism movement and authored the Pledge of Allegiance
(1892), the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted much later by the
National Socialist German Workers Party. See the work of the
symbologist Dr. Rex Curry.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html

The early pledge began with a military salute that was then extended
out toward the flag. In practice, the second gesture was performed
palm-down with a stiff-arm when the military salute was merely pointed
out at the flag. Thus, the military salute led to the Nazi salute in
the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the United States.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge_military.html

It was not an ancient Roman salute. That is a myth debunked by Dr.
Curry, who showed that the myth came from the Pledge.
http://rexcurry.net/roman-salute-oxford-english-dictionary.html

Another explanation for the "Roman salute" myth is here
http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter1a1f.html

American national socialists (including Edward Bellamy), in
cooperation with Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society,
popularized the use of the Swastika (an ancient symbol) as a modern symbol
for
socialism long before the symbol was adopted by the National
Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) and used on its flag.

the "NSV," et cetera and similar symbolism is visible today as the
VW logo (the letters "V" and "W" joined for "Volkswagen").

FROM THE COUNTRY (USA) THAT BROUGHT THE WORLD NAZI SALUTES AND ROBOTIC CHANTING TO FLAGS

Francis Bellamy, author of the Pledge of Allegiance, was a self-proclaimed socialist who promoted a dogma known as "military socialism." Bellamy was also chairman of a committee to form a World Congress of Youth at the Columbia Exposition in Chicago in 1893. For more information about Bellamy's plan for world domination see the article from the Daily Gleaner on August 22, 1892 at http://rexcurry.net/francis-bellamy-daily-gleaner-kingston-jamaica.jpg
(A publication named "The Gleaner" still publishes in Jamaica and states that it was established in 1834 at http://www.jamaica-gleaner.com)

The Gleaner article states that the goal is a congress composed of youths of all nations of the World (and many countries are listed including Germany, Russia, Italy, France and "countries of the Orient").  Here are excerpts: "It is purposed to draw together the worthiest and the most talented youth of all lands, the coming leaders of mankind that they may be led to realize, as could not otherwise be possible, the meaning and the worth of the fellowship of nations and the brotherhood of man." 

The youths will "stand before the generation to follow us as witnesses of the humanizing power of the World's Exposition of 1893, and be inspired by its influence to higher and more useful careers, making the fulfillment of its great promises their noblest claim to history."

The "humanizing power" that Bellamy brought to the World's Exposition of 1893 (and the fulfillment of Bellamy's "noblest" claim to history) was the nazi salute and robotic chanting to flags daily in military formation in government schools (socialist schools). The "Brotherhood of man" cliche' was popular with the international Theosophical Society, in which Francis Bellamy and Edward Bellamy has relations (see the Society's use of the swastika symbol).  Did those "coming leaders of mankind" include Stalin, Mao and Hitler? http://rexcurry.net/theosophy-madame-blavatsky-theosophical-society.html

an article in The Sydney Mail on Oct 1, 1892.

The World's Youth Congress Auxiliary (or World Congress Auxiliary) asked The Youth's Companion magazine (where Francis Bellamy worked) to organize the scheme. A. F. Nightingale was president of the Youth's World Congress. In January 1892, in preparation for the World's Columbian Fair, the Youth’s Companion also became the manager for the National Public School Celebration of Columbus Day on October 11, 1892.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html

The international angle for Bellamy's World Youth Congress is one of the reasons why Bellamy's original pledge did not reference the "flag of the United States of America." Bellamy wrote his pledge so that it could be used in any country. He wanted to spread military socialism worldwide.
http://youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4

The official ground breaking for the Columbian Exposition was planned for Columbus Day in 1892, the day around which James Upham of the Youth's Companion organized the Public School Celebration to include the placement of flags in government schools and the promotion of the Pledge of Allegiance.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance2.jpg

The early pledge began with a military salute that was then extended toward the flag. It extended military salute from the Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party (see the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry, author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets"). 
http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-pledge.html

It was not an ancient Roman salute. The ancient Roman salute is a myth. Dr. Curry showed that the Roman salute myth came from the pledge.
http://rexcurry.net/pledgerome.html

It played a role in how Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and scouting in general spread swastikas, Nazi salutes and robotic chanting to flags from the United States to other countries around the world (including Hitler Youth under the National Socialist German Workers Party and Young Pioneers under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics). http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html

James Gilbert states: The Chicago Fair linked the utopian speculations of the late nineteenth century, particularly as expressed by Edward Bellamy (cousin to Francis Bellamy) and William Dean Howells, to the City Beautiful movement of the first decade of the twentieth century which redesigned cities following the the layout of the Fair (256). The layout of the fair was called the great "white city."

Gilbert observes that the project allowed the architects to create, “bridges between utopian planning and notions of the perfected city and the actual plans of urban architects, road-builders and transportation designers” (256). The exhibition’s designs laid the groundwork for the subsequent “House Beautiful” movement in American architecture.

The architectural choices were condemned by some critics, including one of the designers involved; Louis Sullivan later predicted, “the damage wrought by the World's Fair will last for half a century from its date, if not longer” (Chicago Historical Society).

There are ominous parallels to later plans under the National Socialist German Workers Party, the Union of  Soviet Socialist Republics, and the People's Republic of China.

Altogether, 46 nations presented 250,000 displays. It was intended to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of the New World.

The fair was an enormous undertaking. It lasted six months. It was constructed on reclaimed swampland, bordering Lake Michigan. The fair included the first-ever Ferris wheel. It stood 250 feet tall and rotated 36 cars, each able to hold up to 60 people.

Chicago won out over proposals from New York City, Washington, DC, and St. Louis for the privilege of hosting. When the World’s Columbian Exposition opened on May 1, 1893, the Chicago was just 60 years old. It was the last world’s fair of the 19th century.

Today the only building from the "white city" (as it was called) still standing is the old palace of fine arts. It's since been converted into the city of Chicago's Museum of Science.

What happened to all the other buildings? After the Exposition officially closed, there was a big railway strike in the city of Chicago, and in the ensuing rioting, most of the 'white city' went up in flames. Whatever did not burn to the ground was demolished. The land was leveled. Later, the area was used for various purposes - first athletic fields, then a U.S. Army missile range, and then for a long period of time it was just a big flat reclaimed swampland with weeds. Now the reclaimed swampland is called a "nature preserve." Within only a couple of generations, the Columbian Exposition slid into the dustbin of history.

...............................

During the bidding for the World's Fair of 1893, Chicago proponents/politicians put on a rather verbose (windy) campaign to win the bid to host the fair. The choice was down to Chicago, New York, Washington and St. Louis, and the competition before Congress among the cities was fierce. The New York Sun editor Charles Dana wrote: "Don't pay attention to the nonsensical claims of that windy city. Its people could not build a world's fair even if they won it." (Source: Chicago Days, by the Chicago Tribune staff). Although the term "windy city" had been used before regarding Chicago, it had been a reference to its weather. This was the first time it was used regarding long-winded political claims and it grew because papers located in New York and in the other competing towns used the term repeatedly with that meaning.  The socialistic bombasity and machinations from Francis Bellamy and Edward Bellamy provided further justification for the nickname. http://rexcurry.net/pledgespeech.html

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

The discoveries are in the growing body of work by the historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets"). He 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. http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg

There is also evidence that the U.S. flew Spad XIII Fighter planes that bore swastikas in WWI. see  http://rexcurry.net/american-swastika-wwi-spad-xiii-fighter.jpg and http://rexcurry.net/american-swastika-wwi-spad-xiii-fighter2.jpg The photos show swastikas that are not in the S-direction, however, it is possible that the actual fighters bore swastikas in the S-direction, or in both directions, or that the modern plastic models (1984 American Plastic Model Co. Ltd, made in Korea) were designed to distance the U.S. military from the use of the classic S-direction swastika that pre-dated such use by the National Socialist German Workers Party.

There is also evidence that the military still uses swastika symbolism in the Navy's Coronado Seabees Barracks in California (as shown below and/or in this photo).
http://rexcurry.net/swastika-building-coronado-seabees4L-shapes1960.jpg

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.
Swastika Luck Star Protect your from Bullets & Shells
A postcard from that period and made in the USA bears a swastika and the wording: "Lucky Star - May this emblem protect you well from every bullet, every shell." http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-protect-from-bullet-shell.jpg

It is interesting to note that the swastika employed by the military in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics also combined the swastika with the star. http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika1919-1920cav-red-army-prikaz.jpg

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 Bellamy's Nationalist movement for military socialism.  The "Bellamy swastika" spread.

By 1915, the symbol was also widely popular as an ornamental "Good Luck" symbol, as in a 1915 postcard showing the American flag posed favorably with a swastika and the phrase "May our glorious flag and this lucky star guide you and keep you wherever you are." http://rexcurry.net/swastika-flag2.JPG

The swastika was also on American cars (e.g. the Krit Motor Car Company of Detroit) long before it was associated with German cars and the Volkswagen VW. Was the Krit logo the design inspiration for the hakenkreuz under the NSGWP? http://rexcurry.net/krit_motor_car_company_detroit.html

For more information on the swastika as alphabetical symbolism see http://rexcurry.net/swastika-hakenkreuz.html

By adopting the symbol, American soldiers influenced the swastika as an alphabetic symbol of socialism around the world, where the symbol had previously been a generic ancient symbol.

Graduates/victims of government schools may find it hard to believe: Americans used the straight-arm gesture, wore swastika shoulder patches and flew planes adorned with swastikas in war against Germany, and they did it all decades before the same was done under the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP).  The USA was the origin of that behavior under German National Socialism. The Bellamys influenced the NSDAP, its dogma, symbols and rituals.

Similar behavior was promoted by Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html

The government in the United States used the fasces symbol before it was adopted by Mussolini when he was a well-known socialist writer and leader. In 1915, fasces appeared on an Indian head gold coin in the talons of an eagle. In 1916, fasces appeared on the Mercury dime. Both examples were under the democrat Woodrow Wilson (elected in 1912 and re-elected in 1916). A small crossed fasces also appeared on an obscure U..S. Senate seal as early as 1885 (of course, the very term "senate" harkens to Roman times) and fasces are in the rostrum of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Wilson's use of the fasces was propaganda to con Americans into another one of the many stupid wars that the USA's government either started or joined: WWI (the war to make the world safe for democracy, har har). That propaganda supplemented flag waving, the Pledge of Allegiance (with its stiff-armed salute) and similar silliness. http://rexcurry.net/fascism=socialism.html

During WWI, Mussolini was a well-known socialist leader and writer. Mussolini also wanted Italians to join the USA and the allies in World War I against the Austro/German forces. He followed fascist footsteps from the USA. http://rexcurry.net/mussolini.html

Mussolini mimicked military socialism in the USA as touted by Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance") and Edward Bellamy (author of "Looking Backward"). http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance2.jpg

Edward Bellamy's book was an international bestseller translated into every major language, including Italian.

 Look at the ignorance at this blog post for librarians http://librarytypos.blogspot.com/2010/02/socialst-etc-for-socialist-socialism.html
It asks "who gave socialism a bad name?" and then only mentions Adolf Hitler. Here is the response that was sent: You commit the classic stereotype of mentioning only Hitler & German National Socialists, who came in a distant(?) third place in murders/atrocities in the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): Stalin & and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics with ~60 million killed; Mao and the Peoples' Republic of China, ~50 million; Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers' Party, ~20 million). http://rexcurry.net/socialists.jpg

Those are only some of the many groups/people who gave socialists/socialism a bad name.  It causes people who want to rehabilitate socialism to hide the truth and lie about it.

The typo Socialst appears eight times in OhioLINK, along with Socalis* three times, and Socailis* twice. What's in a name? Not that much, it seems, but if you have to choose one, go with something snazzy. (Note: Naziism is a variant spelling of Nazism, but Nazzism would be a typo.)

The groups/people who committed the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part?  Stalin and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics with ~60 million killed; Mao and the Peoples' Republic of China, ~50 million; Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers' Party, ~20 million). http://rexcurry.net/socialists.jpg

Some people would say that the socialist typos AND YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT THEM reveal more than you intended to reveal. It certainly seems that way to people who know the facts above. You have committed a classic stereotypical error that many people recognize even if you don't.

You might also wish to recall that Mao started out with guidance and support from Stalin, and that Stalin and Hitler invaded Poland together as allies in a pact to divide up Europe (and in an apparent contest to see who could kill the most people, which Stalin won hands down, err bodies down). Actually, Stalin, Lenin and Soviet Socialism also had a head-start on Hitler.

You should help update your readers about Hitler's place among people who gave socialism a bad name and also explain the "typo" socialist "Wholecaust."

In "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" a dead collector with a cart shouts "bring out your dead" and then takes and kills someone who is not yet dead.

The Monty Python scene is comedy. But under Stalin and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics it actually happened. For example in the Ukraine where Soviet Socialists stole everyone's food and abandoned them to starve to death by the thousands each day, adding up to millions murdered.  Socialism's dead collectors would take people who were not yet dead (it saved a second trip the next day).

The Monty Python scene is set in medieval times during the plague (an actual disease).  The Soviet Socialist scene in the Ukraine was set in modern times and did not involve any actual disease at all.

People had very strange beliefs in the middle ages concerning religion, sciences, spirits, disease, et cetera. The people in the middle ages seem almost insane compared to people today (and "modern knowledge"), or even when compared to what people knew during the time of Soviet Socialism.

Yet, in the modern era, socialists set and hold the worst records in all of human history in the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part). When compared with modern socialists, the people in the middle ages seem like super-geniuses.

Adolf Hitler, leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party, was the third or fourth worst mass-murderer in history (behind Mao Tse Tung, Joseph Stalin, and, on a per capita basis, Pol Pot) and Hitler was elected and won by a landslide.

Blood brothers: By Christmas 1940, Stalin had murdered many more people than Hitler, and had invaded nearly as many countries

"Whatever the psychology of those who support government, they should have the government they want. Only they should not impose that government on those of us who don’t want it. We do not all have to be in the same government boat even if all of us continue to live on this continent. There is nothing sacred about the Union, the U.S.A., or the U.S. Constitution. It has not been written anywhere that we must be "one Nation, under God, indivisible." The parts about "one Nation" and "indivisible" do not appear anywhere in my Bible, which is the Holy Bible. The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by one Francis Bellamy. It has been an annoyance to schoolchildren ever since. As taxes imposed on non-consenters violate rights, so is the Pledge of Allegiance an oath against property and the right to one’s person."  -- Michael S. Rozeff is a retired Professor of Finance living in East Amherst, New York.

Stop The Pledge Foundation (STP)

My photo
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.
