The Pledge of Allegiance was written for the popular magazine Youth's Companion by [[Francis Bellamy]], and was published on September 8, 1892. The Youth's Companion magazine's first publishers stated that it was created to encourage "virtue and piety, and... warn against the ways of transgression."  Its early issues were centered around religion. The Youth's Companion did not mention drugs or alcohol. Until the Youth's Companion Magazine ceased to exist in 1929, it promoted the Pledge of Allegiance.

The Pledge was originally part of a larger Columbus Day ceremony that had many religious references, including the phrase "under God," as shown by the historian Dr. Rex Curry.

The ceremony also expressed the Bellamy desire for the government to take over the education of all children and to turn all schools into government schools.  The Youth's Companion Magazine aided the Bellamy ideas by promoting a national flag over every government school and that is why there are many laws today that require the federal flag to be displayed in every classroom, along with a daily chanting of the pledge.  

The Pledge was published in the September 8, 1892, issue of the magazine, and immediately put to use in the upcoming Columbus Day campaign. Bellamy went to speak to a national meeting of school superintendents in government schools to promote the coming celebration; the convention liked the idea and selected a committee of leading educators to implement the program, including the immediate past president of the National Education Association. Bellamy was selected as the chair and he received the official blessing of government educators.

As part of the ceremony, flag raising was planned and the idea of a pledge developed along with the desire for a gesture as part of the pledge. The Bellamys adored the military and they wanted the entire economy to be nationalized and emulate the military. They also called their dogma “military socialism” and they wanted government to take over all schools in order to create the “industrial army” from schoolchildren and spread their vision. The Pledge of Allegiance fit with that vision and Francis was pleased to adopt his co-worker’s suggestion that the pledge should have as its initial gesture the military salute.

The initial military salute was held for the phrase “I pledge allegiance” and then the hand was extended outward 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.  Photographs confirm it and that is why such photographs are never shown in schools, in the media, in court decisions, and are difficult to find.  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 (NSGWP), as discovered by the historian Dr. Rex Curry.  The NSGWP salute is an extended military salute via the pledge. Shocking historic photographs of the early Pledge salute are suppressed and rare but can be found on the web.

The pledge became widespread in government schools, and many people were persecuted for refusing to chant the Bellamy pledge and for refusing to give Bellamy's straight-arm salute to the national flag.  That was the national flag of the USA and of Germany. It was happening in the USA (to the stars and stripes) and in Germany (to the swastika flag) at the same time.  Some of the people who refused to chant and salute were religious people who considered the act sacrilegious. They were good reasons to consider the pledge and the salute to be the sacrilegious worship of 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, Professor Rex Curry 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.

Both Bellamys had been advocates of what they called "Christian Socialism." Francis Bellamy lost his position in the ministry because he used it as a pulpit for his "Christian Socialism" theology.  After leaving there, Francis continued to push his plans, but switched to using the government and government schools as a mandatory method to promote his ideas.

It was at that time (in the year 1892) that Francis took the job at the Youth's Companion Magazine where he eventually penned his pledge. The people who hired Bellamy at the Youth’s Companion and who gave him his pledge assignment were familiar with, and embraced, Bellamy's "Christian socialism."  Francis had written and worked for his theology openly before then.  In addition, Francis and Edward had been openly involved in the national socialism movement and the "Nationalist" magazine, published by the "Nationalist Educational Association."

Francis also influenced his cousin [[Edward Bellamy]], the author of the socialist utopian novel Looking Backward (1888). According to Erich Fromm, Bellamy's book Looking Backward 2000-1887 " one of the few books ever published that created almost immediately on its appearance a political mass movement." (Fromm, p vi). It was the third largest bestseller of its time. It influenced a large number of intellectuals, and appears by title in many of the major Marxist writings of the day. "Nationalism Clubs" sprang up all over the United States and worldwide for discussing and propagating the book's ideas. Francis was a charter member of the first Nationalist Club of Boston, and promoted Edward Bellamy's Nationalist creed in written articles. The book was tranlsated into every major language including German, Russian and Chinese. It influenced socialists worldwide, including those countries in the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): 65 million dead 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 Bellamys were bigots, racists, and xenophobes and they obsessed about immigrants coming into the USA.  They wanted to government to take over education and use schools to change everyone and try to make everyone "equal." When the government granted their wish and began taking over schools, the government schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official government policy. It served as a horrid example for three decades leading to the beginning of the National Socialist German Workers' Party and the practice in the USA even outlasted the Party by more than 15 years.  Congress tried to change the pledge's straigtht-arm salute after the USA entered WWII, however the salute did not immediately disappear, and the pledge, along with laws mandating its chant daily in government schools, is still a bizarre feature of the the USA, shunned by every other country.


The Pledge was first published in the Youth's Companion Magazine in 1892. Until the Magazine ceased to exist in 1929, it promoted the Pledge of Allegiance. The Youth's Companion (1827-1929) was a popular American children's magazine. Nathaniel Wills and Asa Rand were its first publishers. They stated that it was created to encourage "virtue and piety, and... warn against the ways of transgression."  Its sales peak in the 1893's, and it began to target adults as well as children. Its early issues were centered around religion. When its circulation increased one-hundredfold in the 1890s, it added more entertainment. It had a children's section, which included short poems and puzzles, and a medical column for older readers. The Youth's Companion did not mention drugs or alcohol. The Companion was published for over one hundred years until it finally merged with American Boy in 1929.


When Francis Bellamy (author of the Pledge) 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 Bellamy touted in his dogma. Francis was a leader in the Society of Christian Socialists and that is what government schools did as he advocated the government takeover of all schools.

Everyone should see this Pledge of Allegiance picture
and Swastikas pictures
that expose shocking secrets about American history.

When Bellamy said later that his Pledge "....began as an intensive communing with salient points of our national history, from the Declaration of Independence onwards; with the makings of the Constitution...with the meaning of the Civil War; with the aspiration of the people..." he meant that his Christian Socialism dogma was one of the "salient points of our national history" and "the aspirations of the people."

The original Pledge was part of a larger Pledge program that Bellamy authored and that program (in the original Youth's Companion article) was replete with religious references including the phrase "under God."

Socialists in the USA originated the Nazi salute, mechanical group-chanting to flags, Nazism, flag fetishism, and the modern swastika as "S" symbolism for "Socialism."

Much of that history is the history of the Pledge Of Allegiance. A new documentary video movie exposes the shocking facts on youtube
and teacher tube and on youtube

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. Francis Bellamy was cousin and cohort of Edward Bellamy. 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.

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.

The historian Dr. Rex Curry showed that the early Pledge Of Allegiance did not use an ancient Roman salute, and that the 'ancient Roman salute' myth came from the Pledge Of Allegiance. The discoveries have been reviewed and verified on wikipedia
