|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). http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html
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
The stiff-arm salute was NOT an ancient Roman salute. The ancient Roman salute myth came from the USA's Pledge of Allegiance.
