WHY THE NATIONAL FLAG IS IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS
The federal flag darkens schools because Francis Bellamy, author of the pledge
of allegiance, wanted government to take over all schools and to eliminate
all of the better alternatives.
Bellamy was a self-proclaimed national socialist in the USA, with the "Nationalist"
magazine, and he preached what he called "military socialism."
Bellamy wanted the government to take over everything, not just schools.
are a symbol of nationalization, militarism, and socialism.
The pledge of allegiance began with a military salute for the phrase "I pledge
allegiance" and then the arm was extended outward toward the flag. The
pledge was the origin of the salute of the National Socialist German Workers'
Party (Nazis). The philosophy that inspired the pledge's author also inspired
As under Nazism, Jehovah's Witnesses and others in the USA were persecuted
for refusing to perform the straight-arm salute and robotically chant the
pledge. They were also expelled from government schools and had to use the
many better alternatives. When
Jesse Owens competed in the 1936 Olympics in Germany, his neighbors attended
segregated government schools where they saluted the flag with the Nazi salute.
The U.S. practice of official racism and segregation even outlasted the horrid
party, into the 1960's and beyond.
the Bellamy legacy caused more police-state racism of forced busing that
destroyed communities and neighborhoods and deepened hostilities.
The federal government has no place
in education and it is tyrannical. Federal flags are at schools to prevent liberty.
The pledge of allegiance was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, cousin and
cohort of the also-famous Edward Bellamy, author of the 1888 book “Looking
The Bellamys were self-proclaimed national socialists and they loved the
military and both espoused “military socialism” (A Bellamy phrase).
The Bellamy book was an international bestseller and translated into every major
language, including German, and it inspired military socialism worldwide.
The original pledge to the U.S. flag began with a military salute for the
phrase “I pledge allegiance” and then the right arm extended straight outward
toward the flag for the rest of the chant. The military salute
was not a random choice, and the extended right arm was the origin of the
salute for other national socialists who loved militarism: the monstrous
National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nazis). Historic photographs

Many people forget that Nazis were socialists. A mnemonic device for
remembering that Nazis were socialists is that the swastika resembles two
overlapping “s” letters, and “socialism” begins with the letter “s.”
Francis Bellamy’s first description of the pledge had the palm of the hand
turned upward for the straight-armed gesture. The gesture changed
in use, growing in its similarity to the "Heil Hitler" salute because of
the military salute (palm down) extended casually straight toward the flag.
It's as if the pledge was an original wordier "Heil Nation" and "Sieg
Heil" (Hail to Victory -victory over the southern states). The
Bellamys created military socialism because they loved the War of Northern
Aggression against southern independence. The pledge memorializes their
view, especially the phrase “one nation, indivisible.” "Preservation
of the Union" was not unlike “lebensraum” in the Bellamy mind.
An Apology to Italy and Germany is also due.
The common claim that the salute was an old Roman salute is a myth from old
movies depicting fictional Roman scenes that were inspired by the pledge,
and by the fact that Francis Bellamy was from Rome, in the state of New York.
The term "Roman" was used (and still is used) to refer to people and products
from the U.S. city. Bellamy was a socialist northerner and was the
original “New York liberal” albeit from Rome. http://rexcurry.net/pledgesalute.html
The straight-armed salute of the pledge in racist and segregated government
schools served as a widespread example to Germany through WWI and for over three decades
before Nazism and WWII. The National Socialist German Workers' Party was
inspired by the films, by the Pledge of Allegiance, and by the older national
socialism movement in the USA.
Government schools teach that the pledge was created to sell flags to schools
and Francis Bellamy is described as an advertising pioneer. That is
a whitewashed piece of the whole story. A better description is that
Bellamy was a propaganda pioneer, comparable to Leni Riefenstahl.
The Bellamys were not beautiful friends of liberty. The Bellamys were
belligerent toward freedom. They wanted the government to takeover
everything and impose the military’s “efficiency,” as they said.
It is the origin of the modern military-socialist complex.
Francis Bellamy is why there are U.S. flags flying at local government schools
or inside classrooms. The Bellamys wanted a flag over every school because
they wanted to nationalize and militarize everything, including all schools,
and eliminate all of the better alternatives. During Bellamy’s time the government was taking over education.
The Bellamys wanted government schools to ape the military. Government
schools were intended to create an “industrial army” (another Bellamy phrase,
and the word “army” was not metaphorical) and to help nationalize everything
Edward Bellamy was a bitter West Point failure but he loved Prussian militarism
and the educational system. That would interest all who loathe the National
Socialist German Workers’ Party, because Prussia led to the formation of
the German empire, and after World War I, Prussia continued to exist as the
largest Land (state) within the Weimar Republic and under the National Socialist
German Workers’ Party. After World War II it was dissolved by decree of
the Allied Control Council in 1947. According to Tom Peyser "On his deathbed,
he wiled away the hours by arranging tin soldiers along the folds of his
Germany and the entire world is owed an apology for the horrid influence
that government had inside the U.S. in promoting socialized schools, military
socialism within government schools, the creation of industrial armies, and
daily robotic pledges of allegiance in military formation with the infamous
The Bellamys believed that government schools with pledges and flags were
needed to entice children to embrace nationalism, militarism, and socialism.
Francis Bellamy used his position with the National Education Association
(NEA) to promote the pledge. Edward Bellamy published the “Nationalist”
magazine and both Bellamys supported its publisher, the “Nationalist Educational
Association,” (NEA) named with deliberate similarity to the National Education
Association. There is only one place on the web with an example of the "Nationalist" magazine. http://rexcurry.net/pledgelead.html
The U.S. flag flew over a country that recognized private slavery for over
a century. Thereafter, the Bellamys, the pledge, the U.S. flag, and the
War of Northern Aggression inpired massive centralized socialism that resulted
in nationwide government policies of racism and segregation, along with a
government takeover of schools. Children used the “sieg heil” gesture
for flags flying over racist government schools through the rise of Nazism
(the hand-over-the-heart spread in 1942). The bizarre practices served
as an example for three decades before they were adopted by the National
Socialist German Workers’ Party. The U.S. practice of segregation even
outlasted the horrid party, into the 1960's and beyond. That is why
the Bellamys are known as the “American Hitlers” and as the first “American
Thereafter, the legacy caused more police-state racism of forced busing that
destroyed communities and neighborhoods and deepened hostilities.
No one can measure the monstrous impact of government schools imposing racism
and teaching racism as official policy for so long. Government school racism
did much more damage than private enterprise could ever have afforded to
do. It would have been better if government had stayed out of schools altogether.
The famous desegregation case of Brown v. Board of Education ignores how
government schools started the problem that Brown ended. When government
began socializing schools in the late 1800's, it expanded government-mandated
racism. Brown is another example of government peeing on everyone and then
claiming that it was rain. In addition to ending government’s racism, Brown
should have ended government schools.
If the government had taken over all churches then the same horror would
have resulted, with government-mandated racism in government churches. The
libertarian solution would have been to end socialized churches. It is fortunate
that the Constitution prevented government churches. It is unfortunate that
the Constitution did not prevent government schools, though they are no where
Did the Bellamy scheme for schools work? Edward Bellamy’s book “Looking
Backward: 2000-1887" predicted society in the year 2000 as totalitarian socialism.
Did Bellamy propaganda make the predictions come true?
Most Americans now support Bellamy’s vision of a massive government-school
monopoly, and the social security system with socialist slave numbers, massive
government spending, and other widespread socialism. They submitted to socialist
schools that imposed racism and segregation. Children robotically chant the
socialist’s pledge daily on the ring of a bell, like Pavlov's lapdogs of
Some socialists chuckle knowingly at the spectacle.
The pledge is about submission. The only saving grace seems to be the
last sentence, “with liberty and justice for all.” When a socialist
says “liberty and justice for all” he means the exact opposite of everyone
else. When a socialist says “liberty and justice for all” he means
that he wants to rob, enslave and kill you.
Socialists robbed, enslaved and killed millions in the socialist Wholecaust
(of which the Holocaust was a part): 62 million in the Union of Soviet
Socialist Republics; 35 million in the People’s Republic of China; 21 million
under the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. (Death tolls from the
book "Death by Government" by Professor R. J. Rummel). It was the worst slaughter in world history.
The Bellamys were also pompous about "equality." When a socialist
supports "equality" he means that he doesn't like the way you are, and wants
to change you and he wants to use government force to do it. He is
saying that he dislikes all people because they are "different" and have
different possessions, incomes, clothes, cars, property, families, ideas,
educations, successes, cultures, languages, interests, entertainment,
etc. He is saying he wants you to believe that changing everyone is
a good idea. That is why he supports government schools and military
socialism as a way to use government to force change and stop differences
and make everyone a cog in an "industrial army." It is the worst bigotry.
They acheived massive equality for many in the socialist wholecaust by making
them equally poor and then equally dead.
Edward Bellamy’s book was an international bestseller, translated into all
major languages, including German, and inspired socialists in all the hell-holes worldwide.
The massive impact of Bellamy schemes on all countries of the world is detailed by the author
Sylvia E. Bowman in her book “Edward Bellamy Abroad.” http://rexcurry.net/pledgebowen.html
Francis Bellamy’s pledge is a chant of capitulation, and the U.S. flag in
a school is a white flag of surrender, to government, to the Department of
Education, to nationalization, to socialism, to militarism. The Bellamys
gave the red stripes a loathsome connotation for socialized schools.
It is not too late to separate school and state. The separation of
school and state is as important as the separation of church and state. The
government should not run Sunday school, nor Monday school through Friday
school. Remove the pledge from the flag, remove
the flag from the schools, and remove the schools from the government.
