How Stalin, Mao & Hitler and the USSR & PRC & NSDAP were influenced by the USA's swastika symbolism and more.
|The Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of Adolf Hitler's "Nazi" salute under the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis). http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html |
Francis Bellamy & Edward Bellamy touted National Socialism in the USA decades before their dogma was exported to Germany. http://rexcurry.net/police-state.html
| The swastika, although an ancient symbol, was also used to represent "S" letters joined for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis), similar to the alphabetical symbolism for the SS Division, the SA, the NSV, and the VW logo (the letters "V" and "W" joined for "Volkswagen"). http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html |
|Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts spread the swastika, the stiff-arm salute and military socialism worldwide. |
See the video
| || The Boy Scout Swastika is similar to that of the 45th Infantry Division and the Soviet Socialist Swastika. |
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).
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.
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.
National Socialism originated in the USA. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-national-socialism.html
The fasces symbol appears in Congress http://rexcurry.net/fascism=socialism4a.jpg
It is used in other government seals and symbols http://rexcurry.net/fascism=socialism3b.jpg
The fasces is on the seal of the Rome Academy where Francis Bellamy (1855-1932) attended school. http://rexcurry.net/fascist-flag.jpg
