A three judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled this week that the Pledge of Allegiance is unconstitutional in the portion where it states “one nation under God”.
THE U.S. PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE states:
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands; one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and Justice for all.”
But, the “pledge of allegiance” is not found in the Constitution of the united States nor in the Declaration of Independence. This “Unionist Pledge” was first introduced in a children’s book as part of Yankee Reconstruction of the South in 1892. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the “pledge” was first published in the juvenile periodical “The Youth’s Companion” on Sept. 8, 1892, having been authored by Francis Bellamy, an assistant editor in the following form:
“I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands; one
nation indivisible, with liberty and Justice for all.”
Clearly, using the term “my Flag” was an attempt to avoid stirring too much protest among the millions of Confederate believing people still alive in the South. At the same time, the phrase “one nation indivisible” was clearly a Unionist (Federalist) politically correct term intended to be force fed mainly to the school children of the South.
Later, the words “my Flag” was changed to “the flag of the United States of America” in 1924 (after the surge of patriotism which resulted from the U. S. World War I victory). The pledge was finally officially recognized by the U.S. government in 1942. In 1954, at Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower’s urging, the Congress legislated that “under God” be added, making the pledge read:
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic
for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
The Yankee reconstructionist phrase “one nation indivisible”, is repugnant to the intent of our founding fathers and is anti-State’s Rights because the implication of the phrase is to deny the States the right to withdraw from the Union.
Furthermore, our citizenship in the united States originally was obtained by our citizenship in the State in which we resided and not by allegiance to some national flag. As citizens of a member State, we enjoy the status of citizenship of the Nation which is a compact of States and our loyalty should be to the Constitution (Compact or contract between the States) and not to some national flag.
If you see Southerners these days refusing to pledge allegiance to the U.S. flag or sing the Star Spangled Banner, do not make the knee-jerk mistake of considering them disrespectful or unpatriotic. Rather, conbsider that they may be true Confederate Patriots who are no longer confused about the direction of their patriotism by the propaganda taught by the U.S. government in our schools and the media.
The minds of such Confederate Patriots have been freed from the chains of that propaganda and the scales have fallen from their eyes so that they now see the same path that our forefathers saw in 1776 in the need to establish an independent and free government of the States for the sake of liberty and future happiness and prosperity of their posterity.
Knowledgeable Confederates can but laugh at the mess the 9th Circuit has stirred up for the United States in ruling against a portion of this Yankee pledge of allegiance. In fact, the entire U.S. pledge of allegiance should be discontinued in its present form.
A PROPOSED CONFEDERATE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE would state:
I pledge allegiance to the Constitution of the Confederate States of America and to the Republic through which it stands, our Nation under God, of Sovereign States, with liberty and Justice for all.
Remember, or learn if you didn’t already know, our founding fathers created the Confederacy in 1778 when they created the Articles of Confederation under which they, with General George Washington, fought and won a war against the British Empire. The Constitution of 1789 was but a more complete contract of government between the various State republics which they began to call the States of America or the “united” States of America.
We suggest that true Americans and Confederates who value the work of our founding fathers in the creation of a truly free nation which gained its independence from Great Britain, learn the above proposed pledge of allegiance and begin claiming their heritage of freedom and independence once again.
