Charles Bellamy, Edward Bellamy, and Francis Bellamy: The first American Nazis?
Charles Bellamy, Edward Bellamy, and Francis Bellamy were related and were
influential national socialists in the late 1800's in the U.S.
In 1850 EDWARD BELLAMY was born (and died in 1898); In 1852 CHARLES JOSEPH
BELLAMY was born (and died in 1910); In 1855 FRANCIS BELLAMY was born (and
died in 1931).
Charles Bellamy (author of “Breton Mills” 1879) and Edward Bellamy (author
of the novel "Looking Backward" 1887) and Francis Bellamy (author of the
"Pledge of Allegiance" 1892) were each successful writers who used the medium
to promote the growth of government.
Charles and Edward were brothers, and Francis was their cousin.
Charles Bellamy was an author and newspaper publisher. In 1880 Charles
Bellamy and his brother, Edward, founded the Springfield Daily News in their
Massachusetts hometown of Chicopee. Both brothers went on to author
books. Edward left the paper after two years to write literature.
Both brothers became lawyers. Charles J. Bellamy wrotes Everybody’s
published by Peoples Publishing Co. in Springfield, MA. It gave summaries
on the “More Practical Parts of Common Law” such as Suing, Marriage, Divorce,
Testimony, Railroad Travel and more.
Other books by Charles Bellamy include: An Experiment in Marriage: A Romance;
Were They Sinners?: A novel from Author's Publishing Company (1890) or from
Authors Library; A Moment of Madness: A novel, from the publisher A.L. Burt
(1888) or The Manhattan series; and The Breton mills: A romance, from the
publisher G.P. Putnam's sons (1879).
1885 The Way Out: Suggestions for Social Reform, by Charles J. Bellamy
(Putnams), drones on about the equitable distribution of wealth. It is mentioned
in the The Nation Magazine Volume: 040, Issue # 1024 of February 12, 1885.
1916 The Wonder Children, Their Quests and Curious Adventures, by Charles J. Bellamy. The MacMillan Company. 321
pages. Stories of Christmas Eve, Three Fishes, Enchanted Cave, Bad Boy, Golden
Key, Magic Mirror, Boy who Teased, Underworld and Three Wishes.
It is unfortunate that all of the Bellamys used newspapers, books and pledges
to reveal their desire to use the government to promote their socialist dogma.
That attitude influenced many other socialists in the USA, and worldwide.
Similar to newspaper owners today, the brothers used the Springfield Daily
News to promote socialism. Charles also wrote several books critical of the
social and industrial conditions (See the above-mentioned "The Breton
Mills"). Much of the brothers' analysis of the American economy came from
watching changes in Chicopee Massachusetts during the 1870's onward.
Edward and Francis were self-proclaimed National Socialists and they supported
the "Nationalism" movement in the USA, the "Nationalist" magazine, the "Nationalist
Educational Association," (NEA) and their dogma of "military socialism,"
and Edward inspired the "Nationalist Party" (in the USA) and their dogma
influenced socialists in Germany, and the Pledge was the origin of the Nazi
salute. "Nazi" means "National Socialist German Workers' Party." A mnemonic
device is the swastika. Although the swastika was an ancient symbol, Professor
Rex Curry discovered that it was also used sometimes by German National Socialists
to represent "S" letters for their "socialism." Hitler altered his own signature
to use the same stylized "S" letter for "socialist" and similar alphabetic
symbolism still shows on Volkswagens.
Dr. Curry showed that the USA's first Pledge used a straight-arm salute and
it was the origin of the salute of the monstrous National Socialist German
Workers' Party (Nazis). Curry helped to establish that the salute was not
an ancient Roman salute, and that there never was any so-called ancient Roman
salute. The Pledge began with a military salute that then stretched out toward
the flag. Due to the way that both gestures were used, the military salute
led to the Nazi salute. The Nazi salute is an extended military salute.
Edward Bellamy's book "Looking Backward" was translated into every major
language including the languages of those countries that became home to totalitarian
socialism and the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part)
under the National Socialist German Workers' Party (21 million dead), the
Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (62 million dead), and the Peoples' Republic
of China (35 million dead). It is easy to see why anyone would want to cover
all of that up, but it should not be covered up. That is one of the
reasons why the Bellamys are known as the first American Nazis.
In the USA, the Bellamy dogma supported a government takeover of education.
Regardless of what the brothers might have wished, their ideas in support
of government schools enabled government's schools to impose segregation
by law and teach racism as official policy. The USA's behavior was an example
for three decades before the Nazis. As under Nazism, the Jehovah's Witnesses,
and blacks and the Jewish and others in the USA attended government schools
that dictated segregation, taught racism, and persecuted children who refused
to perform the straight-arm salute and robotically chant the Pledge. Some
kids were expelled from government schools and had to use the many better
alternatives. There were acts of violence. 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 even outlasted the horrid party. And the schools and the Pledge still
