PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE NAZIS & RACISTS, Edward Bellamy, Francis Bellamy, Margaret Sanger, EUGENICS
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, 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 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4
The USA originated Nazism. Some Nazi practices that the USA used before German National Socialists include: Eugenics and sterilization; the Nazi salute; robotic chanting to flags by children (in schools) and by adults (the U.S.'s Pledge of Allegiance); segregation and official policies of racism (e.g. in schools and elsewhere); The use of the swastika symbol by socialists and by the military; Social Security numbering and tracking of the entire population and even tattooing of numbers on people. http://rexcurry.net/tattoos.html
It did happen here. Worse, many of the U.S. Practices outlasted German National Socialism. Many of the U.S.'s practices continue today. http://rexcurry.net/pledgenazis.html
In the book "War Against the Weak: Eugenics and America's Campaign to Create A Master Race" by Edwin Black, the author's central thesis is that Nazi racial hygiene and its ultimate manifestations in the Holocaust were imported in detail from the USA, and that, indeed, it was US ruling elites who hatched the idea of creating a master Aryan race by selective breeding and then passed it along to the National Socialist German Workers Party.
In Zweites Buch (Second Book), Adolf Hitler portrayed the U.S. as a "racially successful" society that used eugenics and segregation and followed what Hitler thought was a wise policy of excluding "racially degenerate" immigration from eastern and southern Europe. It was a change from Mein Kampf and what caused the change in Hitler's views between 1924 and 1928 is not known. By 1928, Hitler seems to have heard about the U.S.'s massive industrial wealth, the Immigration Act of 1924, segregation, and the fact that most American states had eugenics boards to sterilize people who were considered inferior. Hitler declared his support for such practices and desired that German socialists would follow suit. Was Hitler also aware of the Nazi salute and robotic chanting that was used in the U.S.'s Pledge of Allegiance and had been so for about 3 decades?
The notorious American and National Socialist Edward Bellamy
authored the socialist utopian fantasy "Equality." The
popularity of Bellamy's eugenic utopia coincided with Alfred Ploetz's
formulation of a scientific method for its realization. Ploetz
(August 22, 1860 – March 20, 1940) was a German physician and
eugenicist known for coining the term racial hygiene (Rassenhygiene)
and promoting the concept in Germany. Many German socialists
responded enthusiastically to Bellamy's vision as offering the basis
in evolutionary terms for a classless world community or
Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy (Edward's cousin and cohort) were conspiracy theorists and socialists. Edward Bellamy's conspiracy theories were outlined in his books, including the novel "Looking Backward" an international bestseller that Bellamy personally had translated into German, where Bellamy had lived for a year. Bellamy's book launched a global movement of national socialism.
Both Bellamys wanted the government to take over all schools in
order to impose their plans in the USA. Francis Bellamy aided
Edward's conspiracy theory when Francis authored of the "Pledge
of Allegiance" to the flag. The Nazi salute originated in
America from Francis Bellamy's pledge, turning American children into
quislings for national socialism, as shown in the work of Dr. Rex
Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets").
The Bellamys believed that countries would be destroyed by diversity and individuality, unless the government imposed uniformity and "equality."
The arm extended straight out was an early way of saluting the American flag during the pledge. People would raise their right hand to their forehead and perform the standard military salute at the pledge's beginning, and then at the words "to my flag", extend their arm straight out. It was not an ancient Roman salute, although that is a popular myth. Dr. Curry showed that the ancient Roman salute myth came from the Pledge of Allegiance. http://rexcurry.net/edward%20bellamy.jpg
The National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) adapted the straight-arm gesture, along with robotic chanting to flags and government.
The Eugenics movement in Britain and America was one of Hitler's inspirations for genocide, just as his salute was inspired by the American salute. http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg
Yet, to this day, conspiracy theories that question government action are shunned, while conspiracy theories that tout government action, and even all-out war, are embraced and repeated.
In summation, there are many ways in which Hitler and his national socialists were familiar with American national socialists and American practices (including America's nazi salute from the Pledge of Allegiance and its persecution of people who refused the mechanical brainwashing), here are a few ways:
American socialist eugenicists, as explained by various authors including Edwin Black. Hitler personally communicated with and lauded American socialist eugenicists.
The automaker Henry Ford and his book “The International Jew” and his Dearborn, Michigan newspaper. James D. Mooney, vice-president of overseas operations for General Motors, also received a medal from Hitler, the Merit Cross of the German Eagle, First Class.
Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy via the international bestseller “Looking Backward” (translated into German) and the book “Equality” and via other print and film sources, and via “Nationalist Clubs” or “Nationalism Clubs” and various Nationalist publications that promoted the Bellamy dogma in and around Germany. They were both Freemasons and they spread their dogma and the salute/pledge of allegiance internationally via that organization and others (e.g. Boy Scouts), and a Youth's Congress. Francis wrote the pledge with the intent that it be used by other nations. See the book Edward Bellamy Abroad, by Sylvia E. Bowman, with an amazing 543 pages, and an entire chapter about Bellamy's influence in Germany. http://rexcurry.net/francis-bellamy-daily-gleaner-kingston-jamaica.jpg
The early silent movie "The Vanishing American" (by George B. Seitz) based on the Zane Grey novel that shows the American stiff-armed salute taught to native Americans in a government school. And other American movies.
American books and writers. See “Hitler’s Private Library: The Books That Shaped His Life” by Timothy W. Ryback, including the book by American eugenicist Madison Grant titled “The Passing of the Great Race.” Karl May, the German author who was one of Hitler's favorite authors and whose books were set in the USA as cowboy and Indian westerns.
Ernst Hanfstaengl, an American and a Harvard grad and an intimate friend of Hitler known as “Putzi” and “Hitler's piano player” and who advised Hitler on how to lead a crowd into adulation and loyalty (e.g. as was -and is- done with the Pledge of Allegiance and its early Nazi salute).
Via the Olympics, including the 1924 Olympics which displays the stiff-armed salute that the Olympics adopted from the USA's Pledge of Allegiance.
News reports and court cases concerning pledge persecution that reached its nadir at the U.S. Supreme Court in 1940 in Minersville School District v. Gobitis when the Court upheld government persecution of children in government schools (socialist schools) if they refused the daily robotic brainwashing.
Woodrow Wilson wanted all children to chant the pledge,
during the time when America's nazi salute was used, during the time
he was president and during WWI. Wilson is also quoted in the film
“Birth of a Nation” explaining the goals of the “Aryan”
A fan of RexCurry.net writes: The association of the pledge
with the National Socialist German Workers' Party is at least skin
deep. The stance, presentation, salute and pledge of allegiance
were essentially the

Health, Race and German Politics Between National Unification and Nazism, 1870-1945 (Cambridge Studies in the History of Medicine) (Paperback)
by Paul Weindling
Ploetz convinced Rudin that alcohol and tobacco were not only damaging to individual health but they also poisoned the fitness of future generations. Rudin can be regarded as the co-founder of German eugenics.
"In 1890 Ploetz married Rudin's sister, Pauline, who was studying medicine. Ernst Rudin established an abstinence association, Humanitas, for Swiss grammar schools. Rudin was imbued with reformist ideals similar to those of Ploetz and the Hauptmanns. Rudin and his fellow schoolboys reinforced their abstinence by adventorously reading Bebel on women and socialism (the SPD's Party Congress was held in St Gallen in 1887), medical tracts by Forel and Bunge, and the utopian writing of Edward Bellamy. There was a vitual epidemic of utopianism. The linking of utopianism and Lebensreform was a stimulus to biological research."
"Although Ploetz acquired Swiss nationality, his German nationalist convictions also intensified. In the physiological laboratory of Gaule, where he was completing his dissertation on heredity, worked the fellow abstinence-campaigner Fick, who was a hybrid between a democrat and a fervent Pan-German nationalist."
"Fick persuaded them that they could earn well in South Africa where he had spent five years. Ploetz looked forward to being able to study bush men as among the lowest human races. However, the couple finally abandoned their African plans and decided on the United States, where they went in 1890..."
Fick was involved in the founding of the Pan-German league. Ploetz encountered a strong current of nationalism although he chose not to become active in Pan-Germanist agitation.
The Ploetzes settled in Springfield, Massachusetts, where they opened a medical practice and bred chickens. The later moved to Meriden, Connecticutt. While struggling to establish himself, Ploetz used his free time to write a book on the potential of 'our race' and on problems of social welfare.
Ploetz hoped to convince emigre German socialists that there was a way to refute Darwinist criticisms of socialism. Ploetz was in touch with Jacques Loeb, a radically minded German biologist, who had emigrated because of his displeasure with social conditions. Ploetz had contacts with the Springfield Socialist Party, and with socialist journalists in New York. Through his Zurich comrade, the Nietzschean John Henry Mackay, Ploetz struck up a friendship with a socialist carpenter, Adolph Gerecke, who was a contributer to German naturalist journals. Ploetz hoped to use contacts with a German secret lodge in Connecticutt to obtain the genealogies of its 20,000 members. He formulated a programme for racial and social reform.
Ploetz's choice of such an apparently unpromising place as Springfield might be explained by the presence of the utopina author, Edward Bellamy. Bellamy edited a newspaper in Springfield and wrote the utopian novel, Looking Backward 2000-1887, which seized the imagination of a vast readership. It was published in 1888, translated into German in 1889, and was popular among socialists. Perfection was the antithesis of urban Boston of 1887: there was to be a socialist society based on merit rather than wealth as the main spur to human endeavour. Bellamy condemned the chaos of liberal self-interest as resulting in 'a horde of barbarians with a thousand petty chiefs'. There should, instead, be established an orderly society 'as compared with that of a disciplined army under one general - such a fighting machine, for example, as the German army under von Moltke'. State socialism was placed on a medical and biological basis. The guide to Bellamy's revitalized Boston was a physician, Dr. Leete. He compared the model society to 'one family'. Marriage was to be based on love and fitness, and the congenitally deficient would be banned from marriage. Bellamy admired Galton's 1873 work on 'stirpiculture' (a term pre-dating 'eugenics' first used by Galton in 1883).(footnote 65 citing S.E. Bowman et al., Edward Bellamy Abroad (New York, 1962), pp. 151-9; A.E. Morgan, Edward Bellamy (New York, 1944), p. 158)). The popularity of Bellamy's eugenic utopia coincided with Ploetz's formulation of a scientific method for its realization. Many German socialists responded enthusiastically to Bellamy's vision as offering the basis in evolutionary terms for a classless world community or Volksgemeinschaft.
Bellamy typified how political utopias were reformulate in biological terms. Social reformers were convinced that if science and medicine were judiciously applied, utopia was within mankind's grasp.
