The USA's Pledge of Allegiance (& the military salute) was
the origin of Adolf Hitler's "Nazi" salute under the
National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis).
The swastika was used by the military and by socialists in the
USA and in the USSR, before it was used by the National Socialist
German Workers Party (NSDAP).
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
Francis Bellamy & Edward Bellamy touted National Socialism and the police state in the USA decades before their dogma was exported to Germany. They influenced the NSDAP, its dogma, symbols and rituals. http://rexcurry.net/police-state.html
Swastikas and the KKK are scary reminders of tattooing that was
forced upon people persecuted under German National Socialism. It
is still related to the "Socialist Slavery" symbolized
by the overlapping S-letters of the swastika under the National
Socialist German Workers Party.
The KKK & swastikas are related to
Flag Tattoos & Fanaticism.
A Cross, known as the Hakenkreuz or "hooked cross," became S-symbolism for "socialism" during the Socialist Crusades.

Ku Klux Klan (KKK) in AmeriKKKa today?
The white-hooded knights of the fiery cross have been the subject of a lot of research, some focusing on the influence of religion, socialism, and Christian Socialism in the group and in government. Much of the work expresses worries of a future filled with religious persecution and totalitarianism. Those worries have relevance to the enormous size and scope of government in the USA and its growing police state. http://rexcurry.net/kkk-ku-klux-klan-christian-socialism.html
The self-proclaimed Knights may be America's most notorious secret society. The 3K's began in 1866 to resist the U.S. federal government's growing police state, military occupation, martial law, carpetbaggers, and scalawags, after the war of northern aggression against southern independence. The group often opposed taxation and the nationalization of education because Lincoln’s party, the Republican Party, consisted of profligate taxers and spenders, just it does today.
Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest was the first Grand Wizard, disbanding the group three years later because of its increasingly violent actions against blacks. The group ended in the 1870's.
In 1915, a second distinct group using the same name was born at Stone Mountain, Georgia, inspired by the film The Birth of a Nation. The second Klavern group had a formal membership organization, with a national and state structure, that paid thousands of men to organize local chapters all over the country. Millions joined and, at its peak in the 1920s, the organization included about 15% of the nation's eligible population.
Members of the clan are often shown in old and new photographs performing a straight-arm salute to the flag of the United States or to the Christian Cross (or the "Fiery Cross"). The photographs are shown with the erroneous implication that K3 adopted the salute from the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP). http://rexcurry.net/kkk-ku-klux-klan2.jpg
Also see http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg
The raised-arm salute originated in the U.S. in the early Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. flag and it was the origin of the salute of the German National Socialists, as shown in recent discoveries by the historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets"). http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-pledge.html
The Pledge began in 1892, so members of the Ku Klux Klan grew up in government schools where they were forced to perform the stiff-armed salute and hypnotic chanting daily for 12 years. It was the religion of the state, the cult of the omnipotent state.
In 1925, the KKK endorsed the raised-arm gesture as it had been adopted by the 1924 Flag Day Conference for the "flag code." The KKK used the gesture and taught it to members.
The USA used the straight arm salute to the national flag for three decades before German National Socialists started doing the same thing. It is more accurate to say that the NSGWP was influenced by socialists in the U.S. and within the hooded group. See the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4
When the leader of German National Socialism died he possessed at his bedside rows of books by his favorite author, Karl May, a German who was famous for writing about the USA. The NSGWP leader even emulated May's signature. http://rexcurry.net/karl-may-adolf-hitler-swastika-kkk-ku-klux-klan.html
Karl May wrote many books including a book about the K3s. That book is almost unknown in the USA today. See a photograph of it at http://rexcurry.net/kkk-ku-klux-klan-karl-may.jpg
The straight-arm salute was created (1892) by Francis Bellamy, a minister who lost his position because he used the pulpit to push what he called "Christian Socialism" in sermons on themes like "Jesus the Socialist." http://rexcurry.net/pledge-jesus-the-socialist.html
Francis was cousin and cohort to Edward Bellamy, author of "Looking Backward" an international bestseller that was known as the Bible of National Socialism. Edward also authored "The Religion of Solidarity" and other articles and books with similar ideas.
They called their dogma "Military Socialism" because they admired the military and wanted all of society to emulate the military system to create an army of God as an industrial army.
Both Bellamys worked together to promote Christian Socialism and Military Socialism and they wanted the government to take over all schools to spread their dogma and create their Army of the Lord. It was consistent with the insertion of "Under God" in the Pledge by the Knights of Columbus.
When the government granted their wish, the government's schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy. Coupled with the stiff-arm salute, government in the USA provided a horrid example to German National Socialists for three decades before the NSGWP began. The 3K's are sometimes called a terrorist group but, in light of the above, is the government a terrorist group also?
The Bellamys and the clan supported government schools for the same reason. They were on a crusade for conformity. They called it "Americanism" or "Hooded Americanism." They were bigoted, racist, sexist, narrow-minded and they obsessed about immigrants and people of other religions. They wanted to weed out individuality and differences and they wanted to make everyone the same.
People were persecuted for refusing to chant mechanically each day and give the straight-arm salute to the national flag. That persecution occurred in the USA (to the stars and stripes) and in Germany (to the swastika flag) at the same time, although it started in the USA first. Today, most people in the USA were educated in government schools (socialist schools), so they are ignorant of the fact that it was happening in both Germany and the USA.
Children of various races and backgrounds attended government schools that were segregated by law and they were forced to perform the straight-arm salute in robotic chanting every morning at the ring of a government bell (just as it is done today but with a different gesture).
Many people marveled at Adolf Hilter's "hypnotic" powers of propaganda, as if he was the first of his kind as head of the National Socialist German Workers Party. Adolf Hitler's propaganda had already been pioneered by Francis Bellamy, Edward Bellamy and American socialists. Francis Bellamy's original Columbus Day program was a blueprint of nationwide propaganda for socialism in government schools. They put government flags over schools, in classrooms and everywhere.
Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy even put flags (and chanting to flags) in churches in another eerie parallel followed later by Adolf Hitler.
Many people considered the raised-arm salute to the national flag to be sacrilegious worship of government and socialism. Religious people had good reasons to consider the pledge / salute to be sacrilegious, in that Germans used the ritual toward their flag, the swastika flag, which the Germans did not call a swastika flag. Germans called their symbol a Hakenkreuz, not a swastika. Hakenkreuz means "hooked cross."
Most people do not know that a cross was worshiped as the notorious symbol of the National Socialist German Workers' Party. It is one of the biggest cover-ups in history. The hooked cross became a symbol of Christian Socialism.
In the USA the hooked cross was a common symbol and was referred to as a cross (armed cross, twisted cross, lucky cross, crooked cross, hooked cross) before "swastika" became dominant. The eventual dominance of "swastika" occurred in part to distance the cross from German Christian Socialism, by slandering a foreign symbol ("Swastika" is Sanskrit, not German).
Although the swastika was an ancient symbol, the noted cryptographer and symbologist 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." http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg
With a 45 degree turn of his Hakenkreuz, and by pointing new uses clockwise, the leader of German National Socialists highlighted the "S" shapes to combine the cross with collectivism, merge church and state, mesh religion and socialism, and mandate the worship of government. He altered his own signature to use the same symbolism and similar alphabetic symbolism still shows on Volkswagens. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html
Support for Dr. Curry's work comes from other authors 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 and racial beliefs.
The Bellamy book "Looking Backward" was so popular that it was translated into every major language, including German, Russian, and Chinese. It immediately inspired a supportive political movement with “Nationalism Clubs” worldwide.
The Bellamy dogma was popular in the U.S. and worldwide, influencing people living in the countries of the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): 65 million slaughtered under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR); 49 million under the Peoples' Republic of China (PRC); 21 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP). Their satanic leaders would not separate church and state, they combined religion with socialism, and they worshipped government. 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. After WWII, Stalin and Mao went on to kill even more people. http://rexcurry.net/wholecaust-museum.html
It all shows how close the USA came (and is still coming) to the socialist Wholecaust. Many Americans are sad examples of how places like that come into existence, grow so large, last so long, and kill so many.
Historians make their work 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). Today, the government constantly increases the nationalization of education, and government involvement at all levels. The dogma of socialism and self-sacrifice is still growing all over the world.
Sinclair Lewis said, “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.” It would be equally accurate to say that "When fascism/socialism came to America, it was wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross." The Nazis were actually the "National Socialist German Workers Party." The author of the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was a socialist who advocated "military socialism" and "christian socialism" and he was a defrocked preacher because of sermons on topics such as "Jesus the socialist." Fascism is socialism http://rexcurry.net/fascism=socialism.html
The National Socialist German Workers Party (NSGWP) called its symbol a Hakenkreuz (hooked cross), not a swastika. The NSGWP was not the first group to turn a cross into a symbol of death and execution.
One of many different legends has it that the Roman emporer Constantine claimed to have a vision before a battle in which he saw a cross as a sword and the words "In this sign conquer" (In hoc signo vinces or IHS). Constantine instructed his men to fashion a sword in the form of a cross and it was carried into victorious battle. It is known as "Constantine's Sword." Thus the cross, a form of execution and death before Constantine, was transformed into another form of execution and death under Constantine.
Constantine banned the use of crucifixion as a means of exexution in 337 A.D. Although a person would not be killed on a cross, he could be killed or decapitated with a cross-shaped sword. He could also be impaled, which duplicated characteristics of crucifixion: slow agonizing death, and display of the victim to others as a form of terrorisim or warning. There are persuasive arguments that impalement was worse than crucifixion.
It might have been under Constantine that the cross became popularized as a symbol of Christianity. Before the cross, the common symbols of Christianity included a fish, a lamb, and a shepherd.
The term crucifix means a cross with a person crucified upon it. The term cross means that no crucified person is displayed.
The crucifix and the cross spread, even as modern jewelry. It is interesting to note that after the guillotine was invented, jewelry (including earrings) were made in the form of miniature guillotines, in a fashion that is similar to modern jewelry in the form of small crosses and crucifixes, also tools of execution similar to the guillotine).
If Jesus had been executed via guillotine or lethal injection, would people wear miniature guillotines and hypodermic needles on necklaces?
When did the cross or crucifix come to be used as jewelry? It might be possible to discover by examining old art for representations of people wearing jewelry.
Why did the cross or crucifix come to be used popularly as jewelry? The answer might include parallels to Constantine's sword legend.
Thanks to capitalism, metal knives (and forks) are abundant in capitalist countries where they are commonly used for dining. Machines spit out knives by the millions. That is not the case in anti-capitalist countries where people continue to eat with their hands or with wooden utensils to shovel food into their mouths. The lack of affordable metal utensils was the case in history, too (some places today have not progressed from historic conditions).
Capitalism feeds the world, libertarians say. And it feeds the world with classy flatware.
As metallic knives became more affordable, people began to use them for everyday dining. Even so, a lucky trendsetter might own a single knife to use for eating. Cutlery would not be provided to diners in town or while traveling. Diners had to bring their own. And there were times, and places, where the knives continued to be rare and desired. It was not something to be left upon a table in a lodging.
One place to keep a smaller knife used for dining was on a chain hung around the neck. Some of those knives resembled crosses, of course.
Such knives were eventually accompanied by forks and spoons, on the same chain.
Today, there continue to be cross-knives on necklaces. Here are images of some -
The cross has also been used as turrets or windows in castles.
Some people describe the American flag and the Pledge of Allegiance in terms that invoke crucifixes and death. Here is a comment from a grandmother about a law requiring tiny children to robotically chant the Pledge of Allegiance daily in government schools: “They should have to say the pledge of allegiance to the flag. That’s what soldiers died for and still do.”
Crusades were not just about killing muslims. Crusades were about killing anyone who was not a christian (that included the slaughter of Hebrews).
In 1930 Adolf Hitler spoke about the relationship of the cross and the hooked cross (swastika) to his dogma of Socialism -
„Und wenn mir so mancher sagt: Wie können Sie Ihr heidnisches Zeichen diesem Kampf vorantragen, wo doch das Christenkreuz allein berufen ist, diesen Kampf zu führen? Dann sage ich: Dieses Zeichen richtet sich etwa nicht gegen das Christenkreuz, im Gegenteil, es ist die politische Auswirkung dessen, was das Christentum tatsächlich will und wollen muss. Denn endlich kann man doch nicht den Kampf, den z. B. das Zentrum führt oder die Bayerische Volkspartei, als den Kampf des christlichen Kreuzes bezeichnen! […] Gewiss müsste unser christliches Kreuz das hehrste Symbol des Kampfes gegen den jüdisch-marxistischen-bolschewistischen Geist sein. […] Aber dann dürften nicht Parteien, die mit dem Marxismus, mit dem Atheismus, ja mit dem in der verfeinerten Form sich darstellenden Bolschewismus paktieren, das Christuskreuz als ihr Parteizeichen reklamieren.“
– Institut für Zeitgeschichte – Hitler IV, 1, S. 33
A rough google translation-
"And if some tells me so: How can you sign your heathen shall forward this fight, although the Christians cross alone is called to lead this fight? Then I say: This character is not about Christians against the cross, on the contrary, it is the political impact of what Christianity really want and want to be. Because finally, you can not fight, for example, the center or the Bavarian People's Party, as the struggle of the Christian Cross call! [...] Of course, our Christian Cross hehrste the symbol of the struggle against the Jewish-Marxist-Bolshevik spirit be. [...] But it should not be parties to the Marxism with atheism, so in accordance with the refined form performing Bolshevism pact, the Cross of Christ as their party symbol complain. "
- Institute of Contemporary History - Hitler IV, 1, p. 33
Here is another translation sent in by a reader (thanks!):
"And if some people tell me: How can you carry your heathen symbol forward in this fight, although the Christians cross alone is called to lead this fight? Then I say: This sign is not against the Christian cross, on the contrary, it is the political impact of what Christianity really wants and has to want. Because finally, the fight of the center or the bavarian people's party can not be called a fight of the Christian cross. Of course, our Christian Cross should be the most precious symbol of the fight against against the Jewish-Marxist-Bolshevik spirit."

Publicity stunt or not, I have deeper questions about the
common practice of high-ranking politicians visiting disaster
scenes. What does it say about Americans that we draw
comfort from visits of a Governor or a President? Are we so
dependent upon the state that we can't get our lives back to
normal unless government is involved? Is our vision of heads
of states so distorted that we perceive them to be demigods whose
touch or even presence strengthens our powers and enriches our
lives? It's unsettling to witness the cult of personality
that surrounds nearly all politicians above the level of
"Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds" was written by Charles Mackay in 1841. It is a worthwhile chronicle (through the mid-nineteenth century) of mankind’s periodic collapses into mass-mindedness.
It is a common mistake for people to assume that religious faith and fervor are qualities to be found only within institutionally-structured churches with formal doctrines and rituals. They are to be found, in varying degrees, within all belief systems, be they secular or theistic in nature. The philosophy of socialism is grounded in a faith and has produced many popular delusions. True-believers who voiced doubt have been subjected (in greater numbers) to inquisitions and purges as enthusiastically conducted as medieval trials for heresy.
The first website to publish Francis Bellamy's
"Address for Columbus Day" (1892) entitled "The
Meaning of the Four Centuries" which accompanied the
first publication of Bellamy's original Pledge of Allegiance to
the flag in the "Youth's Companion" magazine was
When Bellamy wrote "liberty and justice for
all" he meant the liberty to have government schools impose
prayer and Bible reading and worship (which they did), and the
justice of Christian Socialism that was Bellamy's dogma. Francis
was a leader in the Society of Christian Socialists and that is
the dogma that schools brainwashed into children as he advocated
the government takeover of all schools.
Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy even put flags (and chanting to flags) in churches in another eerie parallel followed later by Adolf Hitler.
All of the above occurred during a time when (and
this was known by Bellamy) government schools imposed particular
forms of daily group-prayer and Bible-reading, soon to be
supplemented by Bellamy's proposal for mechanical chanting to the
flag. Francis Bellamy is not known to have ever objected to
such practices. An objection would not have been in consistent
with his personal beliefs, and hi general attitude about
government schools and
At that time, government schools also imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy. Francis Bellamy is not known to have objected to those practices either. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-jesus-the-socialist.html

Frightening information and images about the history of the
Pledge of Allegiance is at
April 26, 1995 at Supreme Court oral arguments. Contrary to his customary silence on the bench, Justice Clarence Thomas asked a series of questions in the case of Capitol Square Review & Advisory Board v. Pinette (1995).
The case was became a landmark in the Court’s establishment-clause jurisprudence. Justice Thomas’ questions took an entirely different path, noting that the "cross" displayed on public property that had raised the topic of "separation of church and state" was actually the flaming symbol of the Ku Klux Klan, and not a religious symbol at all. He pursued this line of questioning in his own short concurring opinion, noting "that the Klan had a primarily nonreligious purpose in erecting the cross." "The Klan simply has appropriated one of the most sacred of religious symbols as a symbol of hate," he continued. For Justice Thomas, this suggested "that [the] case may not have truly involved the Establishment Clause" at all.
Thomas opined that the lower courts, and ultimately the Supreme Court, had treated a Ku Klux Klan case as a religious establishment-clause case. Justice Thomas was not willing to let the point go unremarked.

The leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSGWP) was believed to be of Christian faith by many people. He was influenced by the Christian Social movement and its founder Karl Lueger, after Luerger's rise to power in Vienna in 1897. Vienna mayor Karl Lueger was credited in 'Mein Kampf' as a role model and inspirational figure to the leader of the NSGWP. The book Culture and Political Crisis in Vienna : Christian Socialism in Power, 1897-1918 is by John W. Boyer and he traces the movement's evolution from a dissident political group of disparate ward politicians, through its maturation into the largest single party in the Austrian parliament by 1907, to its major role in Imperial politics during the First World War.
In the historic film "Triumph of the Will," the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party states: "The Party will be like a religious order."
The Protestant Reich Church was formed by under the National Socialist German Worker's Party in 1933, by merging 29 regional churches into one church. The founding of the church was the result of work by the German Christian Socialists.
During the war, Alfred Rosenberg drew up a thirty-point program for a new "National Reich Church." One point declared that the "Hakenkreuz" (hooked cross or swastika) would be the type of cross used in the Church.
In his book The Holy Reich (NSGWP Conceptions of Christianity, 1919-1945) Richard Steigmann-Gall argues persuasively that the the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP) did not reject Christianity.
Many people marveled
at Adolf Hilter's "hypnotic" powers of propaganda, as if
he was the first of his kind as head of the National Socialist
German Workers Party. Adolf Hitler's propaganda had already been
pioneered by Francis Bellamy, Edward Bellamy and American
socialists. Francis Bellamy's original Columbus Day program was a
blueprint of nationwide propaganda for socialism in government
schools. They put government flags over schools, in
classrooms and everywhere.
In addressing the rabid socialism of the NSGWP in The Holy Reich, Steigmann-Gall writes about Joseph Goebbels and Goebbels' novel "Michael" (1923): http://rexcurry.net/swastika-nazi-sozi-goebbels.html
Joseph Goebbels, for whom the “socialism” in National Socialism was of particular importance, was a notable example in this regard.
Sacrifice is intrinsic to socialism.
Goebbels’ reference to “Christ Socialists” (Christussozialisten) as opposed to “Christian Socialists” (Christliche Sozialisten) emphasizes the nearly evangelical nature of the struggle: An unadulterated return to Christ’s teachings, free of the temporal church, is the only way to German salvation. “The modern man is intrinsically a seeker of God, perhaps a Christman.... We modern Germans are something like Christ Socialists.”
Even in private, without the requirements of political expediency that otherwise might have compelled him to cynical posturing, Goebbels similarly wrote: “Speaking does not help. Action! Be socialists of action. There is too little of that. Be true Christians!”’ This emphasis on an active morality, a “practical” Christianity, would be a continuous theme for Goebbels well into the Third Reich.
Goebbels seriously believed his own disturbing statement — there is no evidence that he ever said anything different in private when he would have had the freedom to reveal his "genuine" feelings, if they differed from his public comments. Instead, his private statements and his public statements were consistent.
The following is about the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party:
[I]n a private meeting on NSGWP economics with his inner circle, held in 1930, [The NSGWP leader] elaborated his ideas on “real” socialism once again, but now with explicit reference to Christ: “It is such a far-reaching and complete conversion that the adult is no longer capable of it. Only youth can be converted, newly aligned and adjusted to the socialist sense of obligation toward the community. For almost two thousand years the Gospel of Christ has been preached, for two thousand years the sense of community has been taught. . . . But today, at the end of these two thousand years, economic liberalism flourishes as never before!” ...
For [the NSGWP leader], the answer to the current state of affairs lay in a resurrection of Christ’s ideas: “As Christ proclaimed ‘love one another’, so our call — ‘peoples’ community’, ‘public need before private greed’, ‘communally-minded social consciousness’ — rings out through the German fatherland! This call will echo throughout the world!” Without reference to a particular variety, “positive” or otherwise, [the NSGWP leader] insists that Christianity is at the center of [National Socialist German Workers' Party] social thought. As with Buch and Goebbels, [the NSGWP leader] regards the teachings of Christ as direct inspiration for the “German” socialism advanced by the party.
Many Socialists and Christians in modern America may have difficulty understanding how their ideas were used in the National Socialist German Workers' Party. The New Testament describes the early Christian communities as if they were socialist:
All that believed were together, and had all things in common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. (Acts 2:44-45)
It is a line that long pre-dated Marx’s notorious recipe for death: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”
It is frightening how far the USA joined in the depravity. The major Supreme Court cases about the pledge involved religious children in government schools who were being forced to robotically chant the pledge to the national flag with the straight-arm salute. Those cases began in the 1930's but did not reach decision until 1940 & 1943. At first the children were unsuccessful in the USA. Socialists persecuted the children, expelled them from the socialist schools, arrested their parents, seized children from parents on allegations of "unfit parenting," and many children had to flee and 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).
the height of National Socialism abroad, the USA's government
deliberately fell farther into the same abyss with national numbering
of humans imposed in 1935 with the social security system. The
federal government was growing massively and attempting to
nationalize the economy in many ways. The US Supreme Court struck
down much of the new legislation as unconstitutional until justices
were pressured by the "switch in time that socialized nine."
It is sad to note that during the same time period in the USA, religious people who were fleeing the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (NSGWP) were turned away from the USA, and knowingly sent to suffering and death. That happened because of socialists who support restrictions on immigration and 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, 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. Little has changed.
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 Bellamys promoted the U.S. disaster of old prohibition, as well as modern prohibition. It caused the Great Socialist Depression (from the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act 1930 etc) that persisted and even lasted through U.S. involvement in WWII. Socialism's quest for omniscience was enlarged with social security numbers in 1935 to track and tax everyone, as the USA followed the path of German National Socialists at the height of their power. The federal government grew massively and nationalized the economy in many ways.
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. The U.S. practice of imposing segregation by law in government schools and teaching racism as official policy 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 (socialist slave numbers) that track and tax them for life. Government schools demand the numbers for enrollment.
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, and when the government granted their wish, the government schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official government policy.
It is also true that German National Socialists did not refer to themselves with the hackneyed shorthand n-word, nor the f-word, and there is no such use in Mein Kampf nor in Triumph of the Will. Modern writers, on the other hand, cover-up the truth and never use the actual name of the horrid Party, and deceitfully use the shorthand terms, exclusively to perpetuate widespread ignorance, and that is why those terms are trite.
The Hakenkreuz (hooked cross) was an ancient religious symbol in Germany, related to the un-hooked cross and to the Prussian-German Iron cross and to other crosses.
