Pledge of Allegiance litigation helped the historian Dr. Rex Curry expose religious bigotry & National Socialism in the USA.
Michael Newdow helped Dr. Rex Curry expose National Socialism in the USA & how the Nazi salute was made in the U.S.A.


Many fascinating books have been written about the persecution of Jehovah's Witnesses under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.  The books describe valiant efforts at fighting the deadly dogma of socialism.

Most of the books on the topic need more information about the same valiant fight that the Witnesses made against socialism in the government of the United States of America.

Jehovah’s witnesses were persecuted for refusing to give the straight-arm salute to the national flag.  That was the national flag of the USA and of Germany. Most socialists today in the USA were educated in socialist schools (government schools) so they are ignorant of the fact that it was happening in the USA (to the stars and stripes) and in Germany (to the swastika flag) at the same time.

The straight-arm salute to the national flag originated in the USA's Pledge of Allegiance.  Jewish Folks and Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Blacks and people of all kinds were required by law to perform the straight-arm salute in government schools in robotic chanting every morning at the ring of a government bell (just as it is done today but with a different gesture).  The USA was doing the straight arm salute to the national flag for three decades before German National Socialists started doing the same thing.

It is sad to note that during the same time period in the USA, Jewish folks who were fleeing the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (NSGWP) were turned away from the USA, and knowingly sent to to suffering and death.  That happened because of socialists who support restrictions on immigration on every American’s right to hire, to do business, and to freely associate. It was similar to today.  Socialists in the USA still support restrictions on immigration and they reject the right of every American in living with, having sex with, marrying, renting to, selling to, buying from, hiring (as housekeeper, lawn man, doctor, nanny, teacher etc) any person with whom that American wishes to associate. Such people support wholesale violence and they enjoy seeing people suffer and die.  Nothing has changed.

Jehovah’s witnesses objected to the straight-arm salute to the national flag and they refused to participate because they considered it to be sacrilegious worship of government and socialism.  Again, that was in the USA and in Germany at the same time.  Some of the court cases began in the USA in the early 1930's (and it took all the way to 1940 to obtain the first major decision from the US Supreme Court). 

In 1939 the National Socialist German Workers' Party and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics joined as allies to invade Poland in a pact to divide up Europe.

The major Supreme Court cases in the USA (1940 & 1943) about the Pledge involved Jehovah’s Witnesses who were being forced to robotically chant the pledge to the national flag with the straight-arm salute.  At first they were unsuccessful in the USA and they were persecuted by socialists, expelled from the socialist schools, and had to use the many better alternatives, including home-schooling and their own church schools, but they (and their schools) were often persecuted by socialists there also.

Jehovah’s witnesses had good reason to consider the activity the religious worship of socialism and government. Most people do not know that a cross was worshiped as the notorious symbol of the National Socialist German Workers' Party. The group called their symbol the Hakenkreuz, not the swastika. Hakenkreuz means "hooked cross." 

Although the swastika was an ancient symbol, the noted cryptographer / symbologist Dr. Rex Curry (Swastika Secrets) discovered that it was also used sometimes by German National Socialists to represent "S" letters for their "socialism."  With a 45 degree turn of his Hakenkreuz, the leader of German National Socialists combined the cross with collectivism, merged church and state, meshed religion and socialism, and mandated the worship of government.  It is only one of many forms of occult socialism.

There is support for Dr. Curry's work in books by authors like Jack Chick and Alberto Rivera who believe the Holocaust under the National Socialist German Workers Party was an Inquisition (including religious persecution) undertaken by the leader of German National Socialism under his religious beliefs.

There are many shocking links to the Freemasons, the United States of America, and the robotic chanting of the Pledge of Allegiance in the USA (origin of the straight-arm salute of the NSGWP).

The straight-arm salute originated in America from the socialist Francis Bellamy.  Francis Bellamy (author of the Pledge of Allegiance) and Edward Bellamy (author of the book Looking Backward) called their dogma: Military Socialism and Christian Socialism.  They idolized the military and they wanted all of society to ape the military in what they called: the Industrial Army.

Francis Bellamy began the original Pledge of Allegiance with a military salute. Historic photographs are at and at  

In the early pledge, the military salute was then extended out toward the flag.  In actual use, the second part of the gesture was performed with a straight arm and palm down by children extending the military salute while perfunctorily performing the forced ritual chanting.  Professor Curry showed that, due to the way that both gestures were used sequentially in the pledge, the military salute led to the salute of the National Socialist German Workers Party.  The NSGWP salute is an extended military salute via the pledge. 

The Bellamys wanted the government to take over all schools and to use the schools to turn students into the industrial army of military socialism.  They wanted the government flag in all schools. They wanted all students to collectively assemble in military formation and chant his pledge to the flag in order to glorify and worship socialism.

The Bellamys were bigots and racists and they obsessed about immigrants coming into the USA.  They wanted to impose a heavy-handed method of brain-washing immigrants and all Americans into accepting their socialist dogma.  Because of the Bellamys, the USA has a long history of turning immigrants away from being good Americans and independent capitalists, and in turning immigrants into socialists who are dependent on government.

The Bellamys promoted a government takeover of schools.  When the government granted their wish, the government schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official government policy.  The schools mandated the robotic chanting of the pledge with the straight-arm salute and the government persecuted and expelled children who would not comply, arrested parents, and even took children from parents on allegations of "unfit parenting."

It helps to show how close the USA came (and is still coming) to the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (65 million dead); the Peoples' Republic of China (49 million dead); the National Socialist German Workers' Party (21 million dead).

Many Americans are sad examples of how places like that come into existence, grow so large, last so long, and kill so many.

Authors of books about German National Socialism and other current bestsellers make their stories relevant to current events. Such stories are relevant to the fact that the present government in the USA is anti libertarian and is out-socializing the previous administration by more than double and growing (in social spending ALONE). The demonic dogma of socialism and human sacrifice is still growing all over the world.

The USA still follows similar anti libertarian policies promoted by the Bellamys. Many socialist Bellamy policies caused the USA’s big, expensive and oppressive government and its growing police-state. The Pledge still exists along with laws mandating that teachers lead the robotic pledge chanting every day for twelve years of each child’s life (though the salute was altered). The government still owns and operates schools, including the same schools that imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official government policy.  The U.S. practice of imposing segregation by law in government schools and teaching racism as official policy even outlasted the National Socialist German Workers' Party by over 15 years. After segregation in government's schools ended, the Bellamy legacy caused more police-state racism of forced busing that destroyed communities and neighborhoods and deepened hostilities. Those schools still exist.  Infants are given social security numbers that track and tax them for life.  Government schools demand the numbers for enrollment.

There are still socialists who are ignorant of the pledge, and they support the laws that cause chanting of it daily in socialist schools (government schools), they support the same government schools, they support the same immigration restrictions as then (even worse), they support restrictions on every American’s right to hire and freely associate, etc. etc.  Some of them support the early socialist salute of the pledge.

It is admirable that Jehovah's Witnesses still refuse to robotically chant the Pledge of Allegiance.  It is admirable that Jehovah's Witnesses also still have many non-government schools and also use home-schooling.



During the political activism of Francis and Edward Bellamy, the government schools that existed were generally Protestant, a carry over from the American colonies and their Puritan background.   Immigration was changing the population.

The book "To the flag" by Richard J. Ellis states that Bellamy was concerned with the impact of new immigrants, particularly Catholics and Jews. Bellamy wanted the pledge to make the children of these new immigrants adopt his socialist dogma and spread it to their families and to all of America.  Bellamy's idea was that people could become socialists by pledging allegiance to the flag and to the government for which it stands.  It is a profoundly socialist idea.  And when Bellamy saw immigrants he saw markers of  race and ethnicity that he did not like and that he wanted to change.  As his other speeches and writings demonstrate, Bellamy was a race-obsessed nativist, preoccupied with his Anglo-Saxon roots and anxious, like many Bostonian WASPs, that the new immigrants would undermine his socialist experiment. In a Boston Globe interview (05/25/2005) Richard J. Ellis said "This fear of immigrants is the dark underbelly of the pledge, and I think the main reason it was written."

Roman Catholics grew in number with immigration. Catholic children, if sent to a government  school, would receive “Protestant” indoctrination.   Even the “Our Father” prayer was altered with the Protestant practice adding: "For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”

Many Catholics defeated government schools by building their own schools. Catholic youngsters who did not attend Catholic schools were required to attend catechism classes each Saturday morning.

None of the above was consistent with Bellamyist dogma. He wanted one national pledge of allegiance and one national religion: military socialism.  The following is a quote from Francis Bellamy:  “The free school, therefore, was conceived as the cornerstone of the Republic. Washington and Jefferson recognized that the education of citizens is not the prerogative of church or of other private interest; that while religious training belongs to the church, and while technical and higher culture may be given by private institutions--the training of citizens in the common knowledge and the common duties of citizenship belongs irrevocably to the State.”

The Catholics had the correct suspicions, but as government’s schools grew and became more secular (read that: less Protestant), Catholics succumbed to socialist temptations of government schools.  Even so, it caused many non-Catholics who thought like Bellamy to become paranoid and frightened that Catholics would then “take over” government schools and do to non-Catholics what the non-Catholics had done with government schools.  Socialism is a vicious circle of paranoia and government violence.

“Under God” is not the lead issue for the Pledge in government schools.  The lead issue that the people send their children to government schools in the first place.  Let’s restore the pledge and the schools to their pre-1892 conditions.

The Pledge of Allegiance also led to religious bigotry against Jehovah's Witnesses

It eventually led to religiou bigotry against Jewish people under the National Socialist German Workers' Party. is the only website that provides the scary original speech given by Francis Bellamy for the debut of his Pledge of Allegiance. is the only website that collects and displays true historic photographs of the original Pledge of Allegiance (with the straight-arm salute).  that site is provided as an educational service to the public even though is not even a mainstream news media site.
