Pledge of Allegiance to the flag 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

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, who wore para-military uniforms, wore swastika badges, waved flags, chanted the pledge robotically, and used the stiff-armed salute. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html

It is probable that all of the above uses of the swastika and the stiff-armed salute in the USA was also known to the German-American Bund when it was formed.

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


Pledge of Allegiance Americans WWI French Children

During WWI the American salute was the stiff-armed salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis). A photograph shows French children using the American salute for Americans in World War I as they greet American Soliders on their way to the front in France.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge_of_allegiance_french_children_americans_wwi.jpg

Note the source of the photo: the Committee on Public Information (CPI, the Creel Committee) in the United States. The USA's government was already a police state and proud of it. http://rexcurry.net/medianazi.html

The United States military also used the swastika symbol (hooked cross) in WWI, against Germany et cetera, before the symbol was adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party and used as meshed S-letters for their "socialism". http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

National Socialism originated in the USA. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-national-socialism.html

45th Infantry Division and Lafayette Escadrille Americaine personnel did the Pledge of Allegiance this way. http://members.ij.net/rex/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance2.jpg

The United States government used swastika symbolism during the same period on Boeing P-12 F4b et cetera. The 45th Infantry Division influenced swastika (Hakenkreuz) symbology under Nazism http://members.ij.net/rex/swastika3swastika.jpg

Of course, WWI led to WWII and so forth, ad infinitum, ad nauseum. And it is as if we are still fighting the damn Crusades.

In 1790, Arthur St. Clair, the governor of the Northwest Territory, changed the name of the settlement "Losantiville" to "Cincinnati" in honor of the Society of the Cincinnati, of which he was president. The society gets its name from Cincinnatus, the Roman general and dictator, who saved the city of Rome from destruction and then quietly retired to his farm. The society honored the ideal of return to civilian life by military officers following the Revolution rather than imposing military rule. To this day, Cincinnati in particular, and Ohio in general, is home to a disproportionately large number of descendants of Revolutionary War soldiers who were granted lands in the state. A statue of Cincinnatus in Cincinnati, Ohio has the inscription: "With one hand he returns the fasces, symbol of power as appointed dictator of Rome. His other hand holds the plow, as he resumes the life of a citizen and farmer."

That provides stark contrast to the dogma Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy who wanted all of society to ape the military in what they called "military socialism" based on an "industrial army" created by government schools (socialist schools) via a government takeover of education.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge_military.html

The Bellamy dogma coincided with trends in American architecture that glorified Rome and militarism long before German National Socialists, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, or the socialist Mussolini: neoclassicism was one expression of the American Renaissance movement, ca 1880-1917. One of the pioneers of this style was English-born Benjamin Henry Latrobe, who is sometimes labeled the father of American architecture. The Baltimore Basilica, the first Roman Catholic Cathedral in the United States, is considered by some experts to be Latrobe's masterpiece.

Its last manifestation was in Beaux-Arts architecture (1885–1920). Its very last, large public projects in the United States were the Lincoln Memorial (1922, four years after WWI, and around the time of the creation of the NSGWP), the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. (1937), and the American Museum of Natural History's Roosevelt Memorial (1936) (both after German National Socialism had acheived dictatorship and as it's own path of national socialism expanded with the path of national socialism in the United States).

Francis Bellamy grew up in Rome, New York, and that led to the Roman salute myth regard early straight-arm salute in his Pledge of Allegiance.
http://rexcurry.net/pledgerome.html

For more information about all of the above see the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets") regarding Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy.


Before WWI, one of America's leading propagandists for government was Edward Bernays. Bernays openly sought to use social psychology, political persuasion and advertising to construct “necessary illusions” which were fed to the masses as “reality.” Bernays described it as “engineering of consent.” The objective for Bernays was to show government, government schools and government-regulated media outlets how to gain control.
http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

Edward Bernays' impact was similar to (and built upon) that of America's most notorious and lasting propagandists for "Military Socialism" and "National Socialism": Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance" in 1892). The "Pledge of Allegiance" produced America's stiff-arm salute and robotic chanting to flags in government's schools, where segregation was imposed by law, and racism was taught as official policy. See the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4

In the United States and elsewhere, America's stiff-arm salute began to spread outside of the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag. The gesture was directed toward government officials who were often on stage with the flag at mass meetings where the Pledge was led.

Bellamy's pledge was the origin of the stiff-arm salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party, as shown in the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets"). http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance2.jpg

By 1915, National Socialism in the USA had inspired propagandistic presentations of 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

Another piece of propaganda from 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

In 1917, Edward Bernays and Walter Lippman helped Woodrow Wilson break his campaign promises and con Americans into WWI. To that end they used the Committee on Public Information (CPI ) also known as the Creel Committee. They helped Wilson foment anti-German hate during WWI. Of course, WWI led to WWII and so forth, ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

Bernays also created the patriotic war slogan “Make the World Safe for Democracy” -a patriotic mantra that many stupid Americans embraced just as they had earlier embraced Bellamy's "Pledge of Allegiance," America's straight-arm gesture, and mechanical chanting to flags in mass and on cue.

Bernays’ books "Crystallizing Public Opinion" (1923) and "Propaganda" (1928) impressed Joseph Goebbels, the propaganda minister for the National Socialist German Workers Party. Germany mimicked American behavior because Goebbels learned from the behavior of Bernays, President Wilson, and the U.S. government during World War I.  http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg

In 1933, Bernays met Karl von Weigand (a German journalist) who informed Bernays that Goebbels was using Bernays' work for Goebbels' propaganda campaigns fomenting hate, robotic chanting, straight-arm salutes, the use of government schools, children, and more. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-nazi-sozi-goebbels.html

"If I approach the masses with reasoned arguments, they will not understand me," Hitler noted in Mein Kampf, "In the mass meeting, their reasoning power is paralysed. What I say is like an order given under hypnosis."

To this day, laws continue to order children to hypnotically chant in the Pledge of Allegiance ritual each morning in many schools in the USA.

The gesture has changed.

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.

During WWI, various Americans, sympathetic to the Allied cause, offered their service to France as ambulance drivers, while some of their countrymen fought in the trenches as members of the French Foreign Legion. Some Americans transferred to the French Aviation Service at the end of 1915 where they were joined by Americans who enlisted as civilians. Some of those men asked to fight at the Front as a squadron (escadrille) composed of American rather than French pilots. After months of deliberation by the French Government, the Escadrille Americaine, N.124, was formed and, on April 20, 1916, placed on front-line duty at Luxeuil-les-Bains, near Switzerland. The famed Lafayette Escadrille squadron flew World War I fighters against Germany from 1916 (at the latest) until 1918, first as volunteers under French command and later as a US unit.  The planes bore large swastikas and also used an Indian head insignia that also bore a swastika.

Early in 1928, Boeing built two new fighter biplanes. Airplanes of the type Boeing P-12 which can be seen here were activated from 1929 to 1932 with the United States Army air Corps (USAAC). Some Boeing P-12 were used in the year 1941 and were thereby the last double-decker fighters of American air forces.
http://rexcurry.net/american-swastika-WWII-1929to1932-1941Boeing-P-12-F4B.jpg

The 45th Infantry adopted the symbol as alphabetic symbolism for "Sooner Soldiers." The term "Sooners" refers to natives or residents of Oklahoma, where the 45th Infantry originated. The term originated as a reference to persons who settled homestead land in the western United States before it was officially made available, in order to have first choice of location.  

The Sooner Soldiers' swastika was worn as a army shoulder patch and used as a flag during World War I (Also see the book "The Swastika: Symbol Beyond Redemption?" by Steven Heller). At the time his book was written, Steven Heller was not aware of Dr. Curry's discoveries that the symbolism was adopted in 1918 by Soviet Socialists in World War I as a symbol for "Soviet Soldiers" under the new "Soviet Socialism."
http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika1919-1920cav.jpg

Soviet Socialists even adopted the same color scheme and format: a yellow swastika (flat and pointing clockwise) on a red diamond patch.
http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika1919-1920cav-red-army-prikaz.jpg

Heller was also unaware of Dr. Curry's discovery that the Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the stiff-arm salute of the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

As America's stiff-arm salute spread from its 1892 origin, the salute began to be used in generic ways in addition to the robotic group-chanting that was imposed by law in government schools (socialist schools). http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-images.html 

Even public figures abetted the spread of the bizarre American socialist behavior. Retired General Hugh S. Johnson adored military socialism and was appointed to public office by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and General Johnson used the salute in public outside of the Pledge of Allegiance as late as 1934. http://rexcurry.net/nazi-salute-hugh-johnson-fdr.JPG

As early as the 1920's, Harvard Graduate Ernst Hanfstaengl personally encouraged the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party to adopt American salutes and chants. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-hanfstaengl.html

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. Those same government schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy. 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 symbol had also been used by the Boy Scouts. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html

The USA influenced the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the National Socialist German Workers' Party, and the Peoples' Republic of China in their flag fanaticism, 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 fanaticism, 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 led to 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. Frightening photographs are at http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html





The American attitude toward its stiff-arm salute was similar to the attitude about the swastika, as expressed in a label used by the Swastika Drug Company: "Hilter be Damned. This was our sign since 1922." http://rexcurry.net/swastika-drug-company-from1922.jpg

Sometimes the flag to which Americans pledged allegiance with their straight-arm salute was paired with the swastika http://rexcurry.net/swastika-flag2.JPG


U.S. MILITARY USED STIFF-ARM "NAZI" SALUTE FIRST

The Nazi salute originated in America from the military salute and the Pledge of Allegiance, according to the historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets"). U.S. soldiers used the stiff-arm salute before it was used by the National Socialist German Workers Party (the NSGWP or Nazis). The American practice was the origin of the behavior adopted later by German National Socialists.
http://rexcurry.net/military-socialism-militarism-socialist-complex.html

U.S. soldiers learned the behavior in government schools (socialist schools) and in the Boy Scouts.  Scouts traveled internationally (including Germany) wearing paramilitary uniforms with the Boy Scout's swastika badges, doing stiff-arm salutes, waving flags, and (in the USA) chanting mechanically to flags with the pledge's early stiff arm salute in government schools (socialist schools) that imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy. That happened decades before, and leading up and beyond the creation of the National Socialist German Workers Party. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html

Early flag ettiquette for men in uniform included the straight-arm salute when the flag was passing or when the Pledge of Allegiance was being mechanically chanted.

Civilians also used the stiff-armed salute in the same manner.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg

The Sunday Times-Signal in Zanesville, Ohio of August 9, 1942 states, "When the flag is passing in parade or in review, all persons present should face the flag, stand at attention and salute. Those present in uniform should render the right-hand salute." The same article distinguishes the behavior for the actual Pledge of Allegiance by stating that during the pledge, "Persons in uniform shall render the military salute."  The newspaper provides a photograph of the right-hand salute showing a stiff arm salute with the palm up. The arm and the palm are so stiff and straight that, at a  distance, the viewer would not see the direction of the palm.

Old photographs collected by the Dr. Curry show that the salute was also performed palm-down in the classic stylized salute adopted later by German socialists.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html

Several newspapers carried an article similar to the one in the Bismarck Tribune on May 28, 1926.  It states that during the pledge of allegiance "persons in uniform render the right-hand salute."

In that sense, the "Nazi salute" is actually the "American salute" based on its origin.

As consequence, the USA set a bad example for a long time.
http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

The world observed the U.S. military personnel delivering the straight-arm salute to the flag before WWI, during WWI, after WWI, up to WWII and for up to three decades before the existence of the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

It continued into WWII and to 1942 (and beyond) when Congress began to promote the hand-over-the-heart gesture.

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

The Pledge salute even influenced the military salute at that time. The Daily Northwestern Newspaper (Thursday Evening) March 8, 1917, explains that the military salute had an outward extension. "Standing- at attention, raise the right hand to the forehead Over the right eye, palm downward, fingers extended and close together, arm at an angle of forty-five degrees. Move hand outward about a foot, with a quick motion, then drop to the side."

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

The Pledge's  initial military salute was sometimes modified because some educrats thought it was disrespectful for children to mimic the military. A modified version existed in 1899 (see photos below) and it began with the military salute from the chest and then extended outward in the stiff-arm salute. It is frightening to note that Adolf Hitler and German National Socialists also adopted the gesture of the military salute from the chest extended outward to the stiff-arm salute.
 http://rexcurry.net/military-socialism-pledgeofallegiance1899.jpg 

Also see http://rexcurry.net/military-salute-socialism-pledge-allegiance.jpg

Even today the military salute from the chest complies with "the right hand over the heart" dictated under the current vague law that Congress passed. Congress was so vague that some people (especially those people who were already performing the military salute from the chest) interpreted the "the right hand over the heart" as meaning the military salute from the chest and they continued to perform it in that manner, but no longer with the stiff-arm extension that had followed in the past. Some people believe that the current hand-cupping-the-breast is NOT the correct gesture, as originally intended, that the chest-military-salute IS what was intended when "Congress" (or its ghostwriter) penned the current "hand-over-the-heart" phrase, as that is more consistent with Bellamy's original intent to use the military salute, and it is more consistent with the military mentality of Congress when the current gesture was enacted after the U.S. had entered the war (passed years after WWII had already begun, and a year after the U.S. had entered WWII. On June 22, 1942 Congress passed a joint resolution which was amended on December 22, 1942 to become Public Law 829; Chapter 806, 77th Congress, 2nd session. The Pearl Harbor attack had occurred on December 7, 1941, the U.S. declared war the following day). 

Some people thought it was creepy for children to perform the initial military salute to the forehead as written by Francis Bellamy in his original Pledge, so the forehead salute of the ritual was sometimes dropped entirely, leaving nothing but the American stiff-armed salute.  That modified form of the American salute was later adopted by the National Socialist German Workers' Party. http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html

Francis Bellamy and his cousin Edward Bellamy called their dogma "Military Socialism." The "swastika building" at the Navy's Coronado Seabees Barracks in California is an odd reminder of the dogma.
http://rexcurry.net/military-socialism-militarism-socialist-complex.html

The military salute is a sign of submission to a superior officer / commanding officer (in this case the flag / government) whose orders must be obeyed without question. The Pledge fits the USA's police state, which continues to expand and grow in power. http://rexcurry.net/1n1.gif

American Swastika WWII 1929 to 1932 & 1941 Boeing P-12 F4B
Early in 1928, Boeing built two new fighter biplanes using bolted aluminum tubing for the fuselage's inside structure, rather than welded steel tubing, typical of earlier models. Later versions had aluminum covering the fuselage rather than fabric or wood.

Model 83, designed for the Navy, had a hook-type arrester so that it could land on aircraft carriers. Its production version was designated F4B. The Model 89, built for the Army as the P-12, had a rack that could hold a 500-pound bomb.

The military bought 586 of these fighters in different versions. The first was delivered to Army Air Corps Captain Ira C. Eaker on Feb. 26, 1929, for a special goodwill flight to Central America. Later, Brazil became an international customer for the fighters.

Boeing built four commercial versions of the model; the U.S. Bureau of Air Commerce, precursor to the Federal Aviation Agency, bought one, and Howard Hughes bought a two-seat version.  

Airplanes of the type Boeing P-12 which can be seen here were activated from 1929 to 1932 with the United States Army air Corps (USAAC). Some Boeing P-12 were used in the year 1941 and were thereby the last double-decker fighters of American air forces.

American Swastika 45th Infantry WWI c 1917 guerre aerienne lafayette escadrille
An American plane decorated with a swastika in the American Squadron in France at Verdun during WWI (against Germany).  The swastika was the symbol of the escadrille. It is also noteworthy that the planes also carried the letter "S" on their tails, adding to the alphabetic symbolism of the overlapping "S" shapes of the squadron's swastikas. The planes were probably SPAD planes, such as the S13, clearly a relative of the S7. SPAD means Société Pour L'Aviation et ses Dérivés (Society/Company For Aviation and its Derivatives). The SPAD squadrons were made by the French Aircraft company that had it's heyday in WWI, supplying Fighters for both the French and American airforces, and also the British in some cases. First it meant Societe pour Aviation Deperdussin. The first SPAD went bankrupt and the French government socialized it.

The plane is also decorated with an indian chief head.
Text of the photograph in French -

Translation of the text into English-
A PLANE OF THE SQUADRON LA FAYETTE It was claimed wrongly that the head of the red-skin was the insignia of the squadron La Fayette. That designation had been chosen by a pilot of the unit for his plane.
(Nevertheless, it is noteworthy that the American Indian heads also contained swastika symbols).

Escadrille Americaine was commanded by a Frenchman, Captain Georges Thenault, initially with seven Americans assigned as pilots — Norman Prince, Victor Chapman, Kiffin Rockwell, James McConnell, William Thaw, Elliot Cowdin, and Bert Hall. During the succeeding 20 months at the Front, an additional 31 Americans signed on as pilots. It flew its first mission on May 13, 1916. Five days later Rockwell scored their initial victory by shooting down an LVG recon. On June 23, 1916, Chapman was shot down and became the first Escadrille Americaine pilot to die in aerial combat. When the unit's fame spread, the German government protested about the use of the "Americaine" in the title, since the US was still neutral at the time, and its name was changed to Escadrille Lafayette in December 1916.

Because of world-wide publicity, other Americans inquired about flying for France. As a result, a committee of American and French businessmen known as the Franco-American Flying Corps — subsequently as the Lafayette Aviation Corps (correctly pronounced "La-feet" and not "La-fay-yet"), then Lafayette Flying Corps — was created to assist young Americans in enlisting in the French Aviation Service. More than 200 Americans eventually were trained by France as flyers, and most were assigned individually or in twos and threes to various French escadrilles.

In February 1918, escadrille airplanes and most of its pilots were taken over by the United States military, and French ground personnel replaced by members of the AEF's 103rd Aero Squadron. During its illustrious history with the French Aviation Service, the Escadrille Lafayette had served on practically every battle front in France, had downed 57 enemy aircraft, and lost nine of its pilots in action.

Although Americans in the French Aviation Service were of immense value to France, probably their greatest contribution was in 1918 after most had transferred to the AEF's Air Service (USAS).

Among the Lafayette Escadrille members who were killed in action was Arthur Bluethenthal of Wilmington, North Carolina, who is buried in a Jewish cemetery with a grave marker that includes the squadron insignia, complete with swastika.

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 used by the National Socialist German Workers Party.

Swastika Building http://rexcurry.net/swastika-building-coronado-seabees4L-shapes1960.jpg Navy Coronado Seabees Barracks
Swastika Building Seabees Coronado Navy Barracks

The Swastika building is a reminder of the swastika's use in the USA's history in Military Socialism.
http://rexcurry.net/military-socialism-militarism-socialist-complex.html

The swastika was used by socialists in the USA to support Military Socialism and it was used as alphabetical symbolism of meshed S-letters for "Socialism." Socialists in the USA used it for decades before it was adopted by the militaristic National Socialist German Workers Party.
http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

Those discoveries are the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of Pledge of Allegiance Secrets). It should be noted that the building's swastika symbol is oriented horizontal to the adjoining street, yet oriented with north (up) at the top in the style of the Nazi flag.

The sad story is also related to the socialist origins of the Pledge of Allegiance.
http://rexcurry.net/pledge_military.html

One of the first and loudest critics of the Swastika Building was Dave vonKleist, host of a Missouri-based radio-talk show, The Power Hour. In spring 2006, he began writing military officials, including then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld about the Navy's Coronado Seabees Barracks in California, shown in this photo.

expose shocking secrets about American history.

Socialists in the USA originated the Nazi salute, robotic group-chanting to flags, Nazism, flag fanaticism, and the modern swastika as "S" symbolism for "Socialism." http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html

Much of that history is the history of the Pledge Of Allegiance. A new documentary video movie exposes the shocking facts on youtube
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4

Those historical facts explain the enormous size and scope of government today, and the USA's growing police state.  They are reasons for massive reductions in government, taxation, spending and socialism.

The "Nazi salute" is more accurately called the "American salute" as it was created and popularized by national socialists in the USA.  It was the early salute of the Pledge of Allegiance. The Pledge was written by Francis Bellamy. http://rexcurry.net/pledgetragedy.html

The original Pledge of Allegiance began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the flag. It was the origin of the stiff-arm salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party. http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html

Francis Bellamy and his cousin Edward Bellamy called their dogma "Military Socialism."  The military salute is a sign of submission to a superior officer / commanding officer (in this case the flag / government) whose orders must be obeyed without question. http://rexcurry.net/1n1.gif

Francis Bellamy was cousin and cohort of Edward Bellamy. http://rexcurry.net/pledgebackward.html

Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy were self-proclaimed socialists in the Nationalism movement and they promoted military socialism.

They wanted the government to take over education and use it to spread their worship of government.  When the government granted their wish, the government’s schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy.  The official racism and segregation was a bad example three decades before the National Socialist German Workers Party, and decades afterward.

The Pledge was mandated by law in government schools for three decades before, and through, the creation of the National Socialist German Workers' Party. http://rexcurry.net/bellamy-edward-karl-marx.html

Many people do not know that the term "Nazi" means "National Socialist German Workers' Party."  Members of the horrid group did not call themselves Nazis.  In that sense, there was no Nazi Party.  They also did not call themselves Fascists. They called themselves socialists, just as their name indicates.

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

It is additional proof of Dr. Curry's work showing the use of the swastika as S-shapes for "socialism" under Soviet Socialists, German Socialists, and in Latvia and Finland, Great Britain, and that they all followed after the United States of America. http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

In Finland the swastika was used as the official national marking of the Army between 1918 and 1944, and also of the Finnish Air Force at that time. The swastika was also used by the Lotta Svärd organisation. The blue swastika was the symbol used by the family of Swedish Count Eric von Rosen, who donated the first plane to the Finnish White Army during the Finnish Civil War. At that time, Rosen was socialist in his philosophy and socialism was growing like a cancer worldwide. Rosen's socialism grew too and, after the National Socialist German Workers' Party was formed, Rosen altered his use of the symbol to be the same as that of the National Socialist German Workers' Party when Rosen became one of the founding members of Nationalsocialistiska Blocket, a Swedish Socialist political party, that took advantage of the overlapping S-shapes of the swastika. Rosen also gained a closer connection to Germany when Hermann Göring married Carin von Kantzow, whose sister was married to Rosen.

The National Socialist Bloc was formed in the end of 1933. It was formed by the merger of Nationalsocialistiska Samlingspartiet, Nationalsocialistiska Förbundet and local national socialist units connected to the advocate Sven Hallström in Umeå. Later Svensk Nationalsocialistisk Samling merged into NSB. The leader of the party was the colonel Martin Ekström. The party maintained several publications, Landet Fritt (Göteborg), Vår Kamp (Göteborg), Vår Front (Umeå), Nasisten (Malmö) and Riksposten. NSB differentiated itself from other Swedish national socialist groups due to its liaisons with the Swedish upper class.

The swastika in Finnish is "Hakaristi," which in a more literal or phonetic translation is "hooked cross," similar to the German word "Hakenkreuz." It was a type of cross. It became known as the "Von Rosen Cross" and that term is still used sometimes today in Finland.

There was German involvement in the Finnish Civil War (January-May 1918). The Hakaristi was used by the German-allied Whites during that Civil War.

The swastika also appeared in many Finnish medals and decorations. In wartime medals of honor it was a visible element, first drafted by Akseli Gallen-Kallela 1918–19.  In Germany and Austria at the same time period, the swastika was also being used by socialist groups.

The hakaristi (Finnish) was seen often on aircraft and armour, including Brewster Buffaloes, StuGs.

The hakenkreuz (German) decorated the planes of Herman Kunz (plane: Albatross Jasta 7) and Paul Billik (Albatross Jasta 12) and Werner Voss (Albatross). All three aircraft were roughly contemporaneous - Spring, 1917. Raoul Lufberry of the Layfayette Escadrille Americaine flew a swastika-marked SPAD VII in roughly the same time period as well.

The Brewster Buffalo, or Brewster F2A, was an American fighter plane that saw extensive service with both Allied and Axis air forces during World War II. They were successful in combat, especially in Finland where Brewster F2A fighters saw their longest and most intensive service with the Ilmavoimat (Finnish Air Force), during 1940-48.

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, on Boeing P-12 planes. http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

Up to June 1941, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was as closely allied to the National Socialist German Workers Party as the Finns were in 1939-40.  After Barbarossa, the Soviet Socialist leader (Stalin) judged it much better to maintain his agreement with Finland:  there was no advantage to Soviet Socialists acquiring another active enemy north of Leningrad.

German Socialists received oil and food from Soviet Socialists. The National Socialist German Worker' Party and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics were allies in 1939 when they jointly attacked Poland as part of a larger pact (Molotov-Ribbentrop) to divide up Europe. The Soviet Socialist Navy escorted a German raiding ship to the Pacific via Siberia and the Bering Strait.  Soviet Socialists opposed Lend-Lease in the U.S. and preached collaboration in Nazi-Sozi occupied Europe.

In Barbarossa, Finland allowed tens of thousands of German troops to deploy secretly in Finland, and that gave the USSR a casus belli. Before Barbarossa, Finland had already agreed to join the German Socialist attack. German troops were deploying in Finland.  Soviet Socialists pre-emptively attacked before any attack was made from Finnish territory, but the Axis/Finnish attack was coming regardless. Stalin had no choice about acquiring another active enemy north of Leningrad.

By 1944, the 1940 settlement was a dead letter. It no longer influenced either country as such; that is, the Finns and Soviets both  agreed to the settlement of 1944 on the basis of the facts of battle at the time, not whether the new settlement matched the 1940 settlement.

In conclusion, it is interesting to note that Finland used the hakaristi as a symbol when Germany was allied with a country attacking Finland, and blocked aid to Finland. General Gustaf Mannerheim was an ally with Adolf Hitler. Finland continued to use the symbol when Finland was a co-belligerant with Germany against the same country. Finland continued to use the symbol when it was actively at war with Germany

The switch from the hakaristi to the white/blue/white roundel was officially dated to April 1, 1945 - slightly before the end of the war but effectively post-war so far as the Finns were concerned (though the official peace treaty didn't follow until February, 1947).  The change was at the insistance of the the Allied Control Commission (it was not happy with the Finnish hakaristi symbol).

The NAVA members who referenced the FOTW web page provided more support for Dr. Curry's work showing that the swastika was used to represent overlapping "S" letters for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers' Party and in the Soviet Socialist State. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

The history of the 45th Infantry Brigade (Light) (Separate) can be traced back to 1890 with the formation of the Militia of the Territory of Oklahoma. That militia fought in 1898 in the Spanish-American War, and again later in 1916 the First Oklahoma Infantry Regiment fought in the Mexican Border Conflict. Thus, the brigade was around even as the earliest Sooners arrived.

In 1917, the First Oklahoma Infantry Regiment fought in the final month of World War I.  It was during WWI that the swastika of the Sooner Soldiers was viewed and later adopted by Officers in the military of the The Russian SFSR, soon to be the USSR.  Soviet Socialists retained the alphabetic symbolism but changed the meaning to "Socialist Soldiers" in their open quest for a violent world revolution of socialism.

The Soviet government also placed the swastika in the center of its new paper money to represent "Soviet Socialism" for the new "Socialist Society." http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika-cccp-sssr.html

The 45th Infantry eventually dropped the Sooner Soldier's swastika and switched to a thunderbird.  The thunderbird resembles the eagle, a bird of prey, that was also popular as a symbol of socialism under the National Socialist German Workers' Party and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

In 1916, the First Oklahoma Infantry Regiment (OKARNG) fought in the Mexican Border Conflict and in 1917 the First Oklahoma Infantry Regiment (OKARNG) fought in the final month of WWI.

After mustering out at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, from service on the Mexican border, these soldiers enjoyed civilian life for only about a month until the First Oklahoma Infantry and other National Guard troops in Oklahoma were called in April, 1917, for Federal service in World War I.

After training at Fort Sill from April until August, 1917, these forces were moved to Camp Bowie near Fort Worth, Texas, and with the Texas National Guard formed the 36th Infantry Division.

After training in Texas and France, this division was in combat in World War I for over a month until the end of the war. Two Oklahoma National Guardsmen in the 36th received the Medal of Honor, our country’s highest decoration for gallantry and bravery at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty.

In 1923, the unit was organized as a National Guard Division with units in OK, CO, NM, and AZ.


Syrian Social National Party Swastika Socialism

The swastika continues to be used for alphabetical symbolism as S-letters for "Socialism" as shown in this image of the Syrian Social National Party (SSNP). http://rexcurry.net/syrian-social-national-party-swastika-socialism.jpg

It is a reminder of the use of the hakenkreuz (hooked cross) for alphabetical symbolism as crossed S-letters for "Socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers Party.
The symbolism is explained in this graphic image: http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg

For more information see the work of the documentarian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets"). http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

Did the SSNP also borrow the stiff-arm salute that originated in the USA before it was adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party? http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg


The Germans did not call the symbol "swastika," and neither did Native Americans.  In fact, the symbol attributed to Native Americans should not even be described as a swastika. The Native American "whirling logs" pictogram did not even look like a modern swastika until Native Americans were asked to mimic the modern-looking swastika symbol. The term "swastika" should not even be used in the same sentence as "Native American" unless it is a sentence debunking the myth.

In the late 1800s, when J. Lorenzo Hubbell and J.B. Moore opened their trading posts in Arizona and New Mexico. By 1896, with prodding by Hubbell and Moore, the symbol proliferated on Navajo rugs, sometimes lifted directly from the images in sand and depicted as a central cross with a male-female pair of standing figures ("yei" or "dreaming twins") at the end of each of the four arms of the classic equalateral cross (the plus sign or addition sign).

It was even later than that time period, when the elaborate pictures began to mimick the modern stylized "S" shaped swastika, which is visually dissimilar, and tied to the earlier sand paintings only by myth.

Navajos portrayed the swastika solely in their religious ceremonies in the form of sand paintings.

In Navajo myth the swastika represents the legend of the whirling log. As told by Aigner, the tale is of a man, outcast from his tribe, who rolls down river in a hollowed-out log. With the help of sacred deities he finds a place of friendship and abundance.

To add insult to injury, in 1940, in response to Hitler's regime, the Navajo, Papago, Apache and Hopi people signed a whirling log proclamation. It read, "Because the above ornament, which has been a symbol of friendship among our forefathers for many centuries, has been desecrated recently by another nation of peoples, therefore it is resolved that henceforth from this date on and forever more our tribes renounce the use of the emblem commonly known today as the swastika . . . on our blankets, baskets, art objects, sand paintings and clothing."
 
NativeAmericanWhirlingLog.jpg (3966 bytes)    

Today, "swastika" immediately brings to mind the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis).  It was not a native Southwestern design.

A swastika-style design is sometimes attributed to basket weaving where the ends of a simple cross design are turned either to the right or left, depending on the direction of the weaving, to form a swastika.  It is one of the few examples of the symbol's arms actually indicating direction of movement (in weaving).

Other designs also have been introduced with the technology of a craft. For example, a host of designs appear in metal dies which were derived from much older stamps used to decorate leather.

These designs have been called by such fanciful names as rattlesnake jaws, Thunderbird tracks or a medicine man's eye. Others bear more prosaic names such as fence, tipi, mountain range, hogan, sun's rays, headdress or running water. However, in most instances they are purely decorative and their presence may be noted far back in history as elements of cultures other than that of the Native American.

In the craft of silversmithing, the Thunderbird is used lavishly on stamped jewelry. The Thunderbird came to the Southwest via industrial dies furnished to Indian artists.

While it is a symbol of importance among the Plains Indians, this immense bird is neither characterized by the Southwestern Indians, nor do their myths offer explanations. Rather, the bird symbols of importance in the Southwest are the giant Knife-wing of the Zuni or the vulture, Kwatoko, of the Hopi. Nonetheless, the unknown individuals who supplied the dies for the silver felt that the Thunderbird was a "good Indian design" and so it appears on Southwestern jewelry and even on the beams of the Great Hall in the Albuquerque International Airport.

From the Smithsonian Store - Our sand painting originates from Navajo healing ceremonies. Medicine men place a patient upon a sand painting and rub sand over certain parts of the patient's body to aid in the healing process. At the end of this ceremony, the sand painting is destroyed, thereby destroying the illness. This sand painting contains the familiar symbolism of the Yeis, or holy people.

Created by Navajo medicine men, sand painting has traditionally been an art form associated with healing. These are exacting and demanding non-permanent dry paintings, using sand, as well as other dry pigments. Once the ceremony is completed, the pigments are scooped up and returned to the landscape.

Sand paintings made to sell are not without controversy in the Navajo world. All sand paintings sold are incomplete, thought by some to defuse their potency. Incompletion can be the alteration of the design, color changes, or the elimination of certain design elements.

Boy Scout Salute, Eye-brow salute, cub scout salute, girl scout salute

Boy Scouts helped to spread another myth regarding Native American Indians: The original first printing of the Boy's Cubbook in 1930 still showed the use of the stiff-arm salutes by Scouts and said it was an old "Indian" gesture (on page 32). http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting-cubbook-wolf1930.JPG

That printing of the cubbook was recalled after release by BSA to change to the Cub Scout salute, Boy Scout salute, eye brow salute, forehead salute.  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 disconcertingly 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."  BSA destroyed whatever original printings they had. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html

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 

The stiff-arm salute originated from the Pledge of Allegiance, as shown in the work of Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets").
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4

Even the modern Boy Scout salute (the eye-brow salute) came from the Pledge of Allegiance's use of the military salute.

The Boy Scouts also helped popularize the swastika before the Nazis adopted it too. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html#BOY_SCOUTS_SWASTIKA

Native American Indian children were required to perform the Bellamy salute in government schools. Even today, some states continue to have laws that require the collective robotic ritual chanting of the Pledge of Allegiance daily in government schools. http://rexcurry.net/USA-pledge-of-allegiance-rexcurrydotnet.jpg

Pledge of Allegiance, Nazi salute for Girl Scouts & Boy Scouts in the USA

Scouts swastika thanks submission badge nazism







Girl Scouts & Boy Scouts (from 1907) and other Americans helped spread the USA's "Nazi" salute worldwide and the swastika.  http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html

This is also an example of how the American stiff arm salute was spreading beyond use in the Pledge of Allegiance, where it developed from 1892. 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).

It is frightening to note that the Scouts also used the swastika symbol, including a badge with the swastika. Here

More on the Boy Scouts swastika
http://rexcurry.net/scouts-swastika-thanks-badge-scouting.gif

It is interesting to note that early examples of the Boy Scout swastikas were yellow and in the same S-letter direction as the swastika of the 45th Infantry Division. It is not apparent which one of the two was first.  

Because the word "scouting" begins with the letter "S," the use of the swastika symbol in Scouting is consistent with the symbol's alphabetical symbolism for the letter "S" and S-symbolism in their sibilant speech sounds.

Scouts 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, decades before, and leading up and beyond the creation of the National Socialist German Workers Party.

Many of those young men eventually joined the USA's military or they were forced to join via involuntary servitude in the draft.  
http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

The concept of scouting has a military connotation in the sense of a reconnaisance scout.

Souting's history helps to explain why similar behavior occurred in the USA's military.

The card also provides a job description for a Major General, including pay: "$8000 a year, in addition to the allowance for quarters, light and heat. Upon retirement (at age of 62), he receives $6000 per annum." This overall gist of the card is in keeping with the Military Socialism dogma touted by Edward Bellamy.

More evidence proves the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry in showing that the swastika was used as alphabetic symbolism for "socialism" by both the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and by the National Socialist German Workers' Party, as shown in the images above and below and at  
http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika-cccp-sssr.html

In 1917, socialism was imposed in Russia when the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) was formed after the Russian Revolution of 1917, and the Russian Civil War of 1918-1920.  The propaganda machinary introduced a new symbol for the new government: the swastika.

The Soviet Socialist Swastika shows lettering around the swastika symbol and also shows the swastika as two separate arms pointing clockwise, representing separate "S" letters overlapping http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika1919-1920cav.jpg

Also see http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika1919-1920cav-red-army-prikaz.jpg

The Soviet swastika was so popular that paper money printed in the years 1917 and 1918 carried large swastikas in the center of the bills.
http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika1917-250b.JPG

Soviet socialist money openly used English, German and other languages in an effort to spread sickly socialism worldwide, consistent with its use of alphabetic "S" symbolism in its swastika symbol. http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika1919-1920rubles250.jpg

http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika-may-day.jpg On official badges, the Soviet Swastika was yellow on a red background, mimicking the other socialist symbol, the hammer and sickle http://rexcurry.net/swastika4.gif (Russian: серп и молот, "serp i molot" (serpent & mallet?)), a symbol that also developed in the Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic (RSFSR). Eventually, the national flag mimicked the same color schemes and symbols. The swastika was even displayed with the hammer and sickle http://rexcurry.net/swastika4.gif  as shown here http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika-may-day.jpg

The Germany's socialist swastika had the same meaning as the earlier Soviet Swastika and the Hammer and Sickle: The German and Soviet swastikas were two "S" letters that represented socialists joining together; the hammer and sickle represented socialists joining together, particularly workers joining with peasants, or factory workers joining with agricultural workers.

The German term for "swastika" is "Hakenkreuz" ("hooked cross") because the symbol represented two separate pieces crossed (two "S" shaped pieces).  

In Mein Kampf, the German socialist leader referred to the socialist swastika and the flag: "In red we see the social idea of the movement, in white the nationalistic idea, in the swastika the mission of the struggle for the victory of the Aryan man, and, by the same token, the victory of the idea of creative work..." (pg. 496-497). In German the swastika reference was: "im Hakenkreuz die Mission des Kampfes für den Sieg des arischen Menschen und zugleich mit ihm auch den Sieg des Gedankens der schaffenden Arbeit,"

In his own words, Hitler stated that the swastika referred to work (labor) and mimicked the Soviet's "new" swastika replacement, the Hammer and Sickle (two tools of workers). Hitler states that the Hakenkreuz (hooked cross) represents two crossed "S" shapes known as "sieg" symbols. Those "S" letters were used for "S" in other German socialist symbolism. He made overlapping use of the word "victory" or "sieg" in German.  The red color and the "social idea of the movement" ties into socialism for which Hitler claimed the National Socialist German Workers' Party was struggling for victory. The so-called "swastika" represented two "S" letters for "socialism" and is related to "Sieg Heil!" in the sense of the NSGWP's cry of "Hail to the Victory of Socialism!"   His use of the term "arischen" mimicks the Soviet swastika and the Soviet hammer and sickle in the effort to glorify workers (represented by their tools in the hammer and sickle) as the new super soviet socialist men.
http://rexcurry.net/george-bernard-shaw-superman-socialist-swastika-socialism.html

German socialists were heavily influenced by earlier Soviet socialists, even in regard to concentration camps, purges, and genocide.

In 1939, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the National Socialist German Workers’ Party joined as allies to invade Poland in a Pact to divide up Europe, spreading WWII. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html

They USSR embraced the swastika symbol even more then, and the hammer and sickle was displayed proudly next to and in partnership with the socialist swastika.

The lettering around the socialist swastika badge resembles "PCOCP" which, with slight alteration, became simply "CCCP" (USSR).  The lettering and the swastika symbol refer to the R.S.F.S.R., the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (aka Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic) (Росси́йская Сове́тская Федерати́вная Социалисти́ческая Респу́блика, РСФСР).  The socialist swastika badge uses the pattern of double letters in PP, CC and SS. Hence, the double S letters of the soviet socialist swastika stand for "Soviet Socialist" (the corresponding letters in RSFSR).

The RSFSR began in 1917 and was the largest and most populous of the fifteen former republics of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, which became the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in December 1922.  The Russian SFSR became the modern day Russia after the collapse of the USSR, officially dissolved on December 31, 1991.

The USSR followed the lead of socialists in the USA, and also in the use of the swastika as a symbol for socialism. http://rexcurry.net/theosophy-madame-blavatsky-theosophical-society.html

The USSR followed the lead of the USA in beginning with a "federation" name and then changing to a "Union" (a word that can be translated also as "United") and even echoing the "U.S." initials.  The USSR was influenced by the socialist trend in the USA and by its internationally famous socialists, including Edward Bellamy.

Through the work of socialists in the USA, the USSR, and Germany respectively, the swastika became a global symbol of socialism.

In 1939, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics joined as allies with the National Socialist German Workers’ Party to invade Poland in a Pact to divide up Europe, spreading WWII. It occurred under the notorious Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, which the Socialist Republics never renounced. Seven million died in Poland. As a result of the War, Finland had its Karelian Peninsula torn away by the Socialist Republics and 10 countries Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Yugoslavia suffered under the Socialist Republics for half a century. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html

Even after WWII, Soviet Socialists adopted the swastika style symbolism of the German Trabant Sachsenring car.  http://rexcurry.net/trabant-sachsenring-rex-curry.html

Three common abbreviations (USSR, SSSR, CCCP) refer to a self-described socialist entity that used the word "socialist" in its name, as did the NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers' Party) which used the double "S" letters of the Hakenkreuz - swastika.  Russian socialists used symbolism and the word "socialist" in their group's name, before the German socialists and it served as an example. http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1c.html

CCCP led to the derisive joke that it signified the "coalition of collectivist crusaders for the proletariat."   It also inspired the old gag of someone asking which "C" stood for "Communist."  Of course, the  abbreviation did not refer to communism, it referred to socialism, as did the abbreviation and symbol for the National Socialist German Workers' Party. http://rexcurry.net/bookpic-socialism-cccp-ussr.gif

union of soviet socialist swastikas of Soviet Socialism 1917 Stalin Mao Hitler Nazism
A lot of fascinating research examines how socialists and their propaganda have haunted the world. Many authors worry today about a future filled with persecution and global socialism. Those worries find relevance in the enormous size and scope of government worldwide.

In 1917, socialism was imposed in Russia when the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) was formed after the Russian Revolution of 1917, and the Russian Civil War of 1918-1920.  The propaganda machinary introduced a new symbol for the new government: the swastika.  The Soviet swastika was so popular that paper money printed in the years 1917 and 1918 carried large swastikas in the center of the bills. http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika-cccp-sssr.html

In 1919, the same 250 ruble note that had carried the swastika carried at the very top of the soviet socialist bill the phrase "Proletarier aller Länder vereinigt Euch" in the German language (Workers' of the world unite!").  The USSR was actively and openly spreading socialism in Germany. Soon, Soviet Socialists introduced the new version of the soviet swastika: the hammer and sickle.

A similar fad grew in Germany, where the symbol was popular with socialists and became the sign of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP).

Both countries followed the lead of socialists in the USA in using the swastika as a symbol for socialism. http://rexcurry.net/theosophy-madame-blavatsky-theosophical-society.html

Through the work of socialists in the USA, the USSR, and Germany respectively, the swastika became a global symbol of socialism.

Eventually, Soviet socialists switched from the swastika to the hammer and sickle. The hammer and sickle resembles the earlier Soviet swastika flipped horizontally. The USSR's hammer and sickle might have been intended as a visual reminder of the Russian version of its own earlier swastika.

The swastika flag under German National Socialism was influenced by the Soviet swastika and by the hammer and sickle of Soviet socialism. The swastika of German socialists and the hammer and sickle of Soviet socialists have visual similarity. Each symbol resembles the other symbol pointing in the opposite direction.

The Soviet swastika was unusual to most swastikas (but the same as the German swastika) due to these features: it was 45 degrees to the horizontal (in a diamond shape), it was pointed clockwise, it was squared at its corners, and it was proportionally the same as the swastika used later by German National Socialists. Swastikas can point either way and are often flat on one side. The Soviet swastika and the German swastika were the same swastika. The swastika had been used by socialist groups in Germany before 1917, however the earlier use was never the same as the Soviet swastika, and the symbol was almost always flat on one side and likely to point in either direction. When German National Socialists altered their swastika it occurred after the debut of the Soviet swastika in 1917. The definitive version of the swastika under German National Socialism (e.g. the version on the flag) was inspired by the Soviet swastika.

The Soviet swastika's unusual orientation emphasizes the appearance of alphabetic "S" lettering.

Although the swastika was an ancient symbol, the historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets") discovered that it was also used sometimes by German National Socialists to represent "S" letters for their "socialism."  The leader of German National Socialism rotated the symbol 45 degrees and had newer uses oriented clockwise. He altered his own signature to use the same symbolism, and similar alphabetic symbolism still shows on Volkswagens. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

The NSGWP's use of the swastika as "S" letters in alphabetic symbolism for "Socialism" was inspired by the Soviet swastika. The USSR's swastika was seen as a union of "S" letters for "Soviet Socialist" as in the "Union of Soviet Socialist Republics" (In German: "Union der Sozialistischen Sowjetrepubliken"). After the swastika became the symbol of German National Socialists, the symbol was altered to represent intertwined "S" letters for "Sieg Socialism" (Socialist Victory) or "Socialist Solidarity" or representing socialists from different groups joining together under the NSGWP (especially after other groups were banned in another example of German socialists copying Soviet socialists).

If the acronym "USSR" used a swastika to replace the two "S" letters, then it would illustrate the symbolism of the Soviet swastika, similar to how it appeared in the center of paper currency under Soviet socialism.  In 1917, some Soviet Socialists might have interpreted the symbol more generally as "Soviet Socialists" or "Union of Soviets" or "Union of Socialists" ("Sovetskikh Sotsialisticheskikh" or "Soyuz Sovetskikh" or "Soyuz Sotsialisticheskikh" from "Soyuz Sovetskikh Sotsialisticheskikh Respublik" or SSSR).

German National Socialists and Soviet Socialists have a history of  aping each other.  The flag color for German National Socialists was influenced by Soviet Socialists.

Even after WWII, Soviet Socialists adopted the swastika style symbolism of the German Trabant Sachsenring car.  http://rexcurry.net/trabant-sachsenring-rex-curry.html

One country mimicked the other in the adoption of the salutes that they imposed on their civilians, and both countries mimicked the United States (the origin of their salutes). Dr. Rex Curry showed that the USA's early Pledge of Allegiance (to the flag) used an extended-arm salute and it was the origin of the salute of the German National Socialists and Soviet Socialists. Francis Bellamy created the pledge to the USA's flag, and he was a self-proclaimed socialist in the nationalism movement in the USA. The USA's original pledge began with a military salute that then stretched out toward the flag. Dr. Curry showed that, due to the way that both gestures were used sequentially in the pledge, the military salute led to the salute adopted later by German Socialists and Soviet Socialists. Their salutes are extended military salutes via the USA's pledge. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-pledge.html

Bellamy's original pledge stated that the palm should be turned upward with the arm gracefully curved upward. In actual practice in the USA, the second part of the gesture was performed with a straight arm and palm down by children who merely extended the military salute while perfunctorily performing the forced ritual chanting. That was the origin of the hard stylized salute adopted later by German National Socialists.

The Soviet socialist salute is arguably closer to Bellamy's first description because the arm is maintained in a curved position as if the American salute was started but not completed. Soviet socialists then followed the American practice of not turning the palm upward.

The National Socialist German Workers’ Party began in 1920, gained electoral breakthroughs in 1930, dictatorship in 1933, and in 1939 it joined as allies with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics to invade Poland in a Pact to divide up Europe, spreading WWII. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html

The dogma of socialists in the United States, Germany, Russia and elsewhere led to 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. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.jpg

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

Alfred Rosenberg was another notorious socialist who was active in Russia (in 1917) and in Germany (in the National Socialist German Workers' Party). The noted historian Dr. Rex Curry has suggested that this may have been the inspiration behind the adoption of the swastika as alphabetic symbolism for "socialism" by the National Socialist German Workers' Party.
 
Rosenberg was born to Baltic German parents in Reval (Tallinn) Estonia, then part of the Russian Empire. He studied architecture at the Riga Polyechnical Institute and engineering at Moscow University, completing his Ph.D. studies in 1917.

After the Russian Revolution of 1917, he emigrated to Germany (in 1918) along with his friend Max Scheubner-Richter. Rosenberg was one of the earliest (January 1919) members of the German Workers Party and it became the National Socialist German Workers Party and adopted the swastika as its symbol and used the symbol to represent "S" letters for "socialist." In 1921, Rosenberg became editor of the Völkischer Beobachter ("Folkish Observer"), the newspaper of the National Socialists.

Rosenberg also became a member of the Thule Society, founded August 17, 1918.  Rosenberg and Thule Society touted oddball ideas about socialism, universal brotherhood, and the Aryan race that were all borrowed from the notorious socialist and occultist Madame Blavatsky and her Theosophical Society, formed in New York in 1875.  The Thule Society used a swastika as its symbol, however the Thule swastika was not the same swastika used by German National Socialists.  The swastika used by German National Socialists was the same swastika that had been used for forty years by Madame Blavatsky as a symbol for her utopian "socialist society." http://rexcurry.net/theosophy-madame-blavatsky-theosophical-society.html

Thule Society members maintained close contacts with followers of Theosophy and the followers of Helena Blavatsky. It is also interesting to note that the names of both groups had the same "TS" initials that the Theosophical Society had used in its symbolism for decades.

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

Vladimir Lenin (the first leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) was fluent in German, English, and other languages. Many educated Russians were fluent in other languages.

Lenin is credited with translating Karl Marx's Manifesto from German into Russian. Marx was German.

The book "Lenin - A New Biography," page 8. ISBN 0-02-933435-7 by Dimitri Volkogonov states that Lenin's antecedents were Russian, German, Swedish, and others.

Lenin had previously lived in Munich, Germany and in Vienna, Austria (Both cities were essentially the hometowns of the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party).

Lenin's original name was not "Lenin." He adopted the pseudonym "Lenin" in Germany. His previous name was: Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov. The name Lenin was acquired while he was staying near Lehnin Abbey, in Brandenburg, Germany.  It is fascinating to note here another ominous parallel with the life of the leader of German National Socialism who resided at Lambach Abbey in Austria, and first saw the swastika symbol on the Abbey's exterior decorations.

Lenin had been in Germany shortly before returning to the USSR in 1917. He traveled throughout Germany and Europe meeting other socialists and making plans. Lenin collaborated with powerful socialist politicans in Germany, including Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht (They are sometimes referred to as "The Three L's" for Lenin, Luxemburg and Liebknecht). Another of the many socialist groups that existed in Germany at that time was the German Workers' Party, in existance since 1902, and  later to become the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei in 1919. The leader of the NSGWP had wanted to call the group the "Social Revolutionary Party"). Some of the many socialist groups were known as Freikorps and they already used the swastika symbol in Germany (although at that time the symbol was always flat on one side and likely to point in either direction). On November 9, 1918, Liebknecht declared the formation of a "Deutsche Freie Sozialistische Republik" (German Free Socialist Republic). Some Freikorps groups were used in aid of the new socialist provisional government in Germany.

At the time of the overthrow of Tsar Nicholas II (March 1917) at Petrograd in the 1917 February Revolution, Vladimir Lenin was residing in Switzerland (during WWI) but, with the aid of the German government, he was able to return to Russia quickly. Fritz Platten, a swiss citizen, made special arrangments with the German government for Lenin and his company to travel through Germany by train. Once past Germany, Lenin continued by ferry to Sweden, and the rest of the trip through Scandinavia was arranged by Otto Grimlund and Ture Nerman.

Back in his own Fatherland, Lenin was accused of being a traitor and an agent of Germany by Aleksander Kerensky and others. The Soviet swastika might be more evidence that supports that accusation.

After murdering so many people, Lenin died (1924) of complications years after a murder attempt (in 1918) by an assassin who accused him of being a traitor. On August 30, 1918, Fanya Kaplan shot Lenin three times and later explained that she considered Lenin a traitor, and particularly so for Lenin's banning of other socialist groups, including her group. She was a member of the Socialist Revolutionary Party (It is interesting to note that the leader of the NSGWP had originally wanted to call his party the "Social Revolutionary Party"). An earlier (and possibly unrelated) assassination attempt had occurred on January 14, 1918, when gun shots had been fired at Lenin as he rode in a car with Fritz Platten (the person who had arranged Germany's aid in returning Lenin to Russia).

Lenin's dogma was the same dogma that led to 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.

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

Vladimir Lenin returned to Russia through Germany in April 1917. After his return, he and his supporters used the slogan "All Power to the Soviets!"  It referred to creating totalitarian military socialism by transferring current state power from the Provisional Socialist Government to the workers' and soldiers' councils known as "Soviets."  The soldiers' councils sometimes behaved as independent socialist militia groups similar to the German Freikorps.

Lenin adopted military socialism and used the Military Revolutionary Committee (and used soldiers' councils or "soviets") to increase his power.

In September 1917, General Lavr Kornilov, the recently appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Russian army, denounced Lenin and his 'German spies,' and declared that they should be hanged. He was dismissed from office by Alexander Kerensky.

Lenin blocked the elected All Russian Constituent Assembly (Vserossiyskoye Uchreditelnoye Sobranie) from where it convened at Tauride Palace.

On 25 October 1917, Lenin's group initiated a military coup and the overthrow (known as the October Revolution) of the Provisional Government via the Petrograd Soviet and the Military Revolutionary Committee. The overthrow coincided with the convocation of the Second Congress of Workers' and Soldiers' Soviets.

On October 26, Lenin closed any newspaper that criticized him (For an account see Nikolai Sukhanov. The Russian Revolution, 1917, Oxford University Press, 1955, pp.649-650).

The Socialist Revolutionary leadership increasingly viewed Lenin’s government as a German proxy, and moreso after the signing of the peace Treaty of Brest-Litovsk by Lenin’s government on March 3, 1918.

Lenin supported imperialism. In the late 18th century, the newly independent Second Polish Republic began securing its eastern territories annexed by Russia in the partitions of Poland. That was part of the Soviet socialist excuse for the Polish-Soviet War in 1919. With the socialist revolution in Germany, Lenin viewed that as the perfect time and place to "probe Europe with the bayonets" of the Soviet socialist army. Lenin saw Poland as the bridge that Soviet Socialists would have to cross in order to link up with supporters in Germany's socialist revolution, and to abet other socialist movements in Western Europe. However the Polish-Soviet War did not go as desired by Lenin and it delayed his plans. Lenin's imperialistic plans were revived by his cohort and successor Stalin in cooperation with the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party.  In 1939, they joined as allies to invade Poland in a pact to divide up Europe. WWII spread. It led to the socialist Wholecaust.
