|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

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 same.
The American pledge (1892) does predate the National Socialist German Workers' Party (1920) by some 28 years. The extended arm salutes varied a bit over time but was essentially the same. So did the National Socialist German Workers' Party copy American socialists?
It is significant that the author and promoter of the pledge, Francis Bellamy, was a self-proclaimed Socialist who wrote extensively of a US that would nationalize all industry and conscript all men into a full-time military which would then conquer the world. Sound familiar? These were radical notions at the turn of the century. http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg
It is also significant that at that time (1899), John Dewey, author of Democracy and Education, was leading a campaign to turn US public education into an gigantic propaganda mill for international socialism.
"Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming where everyone is interdependent."
Afterwards the U.S. Bureau of Education wrote, "The public schools exist primarily for the benefit of the State rather than for the benefit of the individual." This at a time when Germany too was overhauling its school system.
But these were not the only connections with the pledge.
Vermont social scientists in the 1920s and '30s devised a plan to eliminate the state's "degenerate" bloodlines and replenish "old pioneer stock.
The 12-year survey was developed by an independent team of social scientists who studied "good" and "bad" families in the state and listed those which it determined needed to be *eliminated*.
The report was circulated among policymakers at the time and led to the passage of a 1931 sterilization law.
Yep. The earlier work of Dewey and Bellamy had paid off! The kids were now grown and thinking like true socialists. The science of human breeding had branched off from social Darwinism. Eugenics was front stage.
Visit the archives at the Boston Globe, 1999, for details.
This law resulted in the sterilization of several hundred poor, rural Vermonters, Abenaki Indians and others deemed unfit to procreate.
The model was soon adopted by other states which over the years effected thousands of Americans. Sound familiar?
So how is this relevant? Because the women's suffrage movement of the latter 1800s had become a socialist enclave which expanded the idea of birth control to population control.
Borrowing from the work of the social scientists, "Race Building in a Democracy" was the theme of the 1940 joint meeting of the Birth Control Federation of America and the Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood where it was proclaimed about the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party...
"We, too, recognize the problem of race building, but our concern is with the quality of our people, not with their quantity alone."
So, that committee was aware of the goal of the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party to decrease quantity while improving quality. They differed only in priorities.
Yep. That's THE Planned Parenthood.
A leading feminist at this meeting and a member of the American Eugenics Society, Margaret Sanger, attracted the attention of the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party who invited Sanger to Germnay to discuss some ideas.
The rest is history.
So, one bad deed leads to another. Each stage sets the stage for the next generation. Words mean things.
|There is an "Annual Margaret Sanger-KKK rally
art contest." In the past, entries have included photoshopped "recreations"
of Sanger's actual work.
Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger spoke at a rally of female KKK members, in 1926 in Silver Lake, New Jersey. In her 1938 book, "Margaret Sanger An Autobiography" (1971 reprint by Dover Publications, Inc. of the 1938 original published by W.W. Norton & Company) Sanger indicates at pages 366-367 that the she got along quite well with members of group. Here is a quote:
"Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered."
Sanger advocated birth control as a means of keeping the population of blacks in check. And Catholics. And Jews. And other ethinic minorites. And...well, you get the picture. Her slogan, "Every child a wanted child" was just sugar-coating for her real designs: a world free of what she called "the unfit." As Dale Ahlquist wrote in Gilbert Magazine:
Eugenics led directly to the birth control movement. All the same players were involved, such as Margaret Sanger, who was a member of the American Eugenics Society and was the editor of the Birth Control Review. The primary philosophy was trumpeted on the cover of the Birth Control Review: "More Children for the Fit. Less for the Unfit." She made it clear whom she considered unfit:. "Hebrews, Slavs, Catholics, and Negroes." She set up her Birth Control clinics only in their neighborhoods. She openly advocated the idea that such people should apply for official permission to have babies "as immigrants have to apply for visas."
She admired Adolf Hitler, and while he didn't care for Americans much, he liked her too.
The announcement for the 3rd Annual Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest! are posted at The Truth About Margaret Sanger. Unlike the past two years, photoshopped entries will not be accepted. However, contestants may submit "Drawings, cartoons, historical novels, haiku, dance, plays, videos, paintings, quilts, rap, puppetry, modern interpretations of Sanger speaking to the Klan, reenactments of the speech on YouTube, mime, audio recordings of actual Sanger quotes she may have reused when speaking to the Klan -- there is no limit to the artistic ways this historic event can be commemorated."
The Aryan Path Magazine - Published 1930 Theosophy Co., Ltd. Page 55 "...a 'Religion of Solidarity,' as it was called by Edward Bellamy, will not compel alteration of a self-centred programme of living."
From Theosophist Magazine September 1934-December 1934 (under Annie Wood Besant) - page 323 THE BELLAMY PLAN A copy of the August issue of THE THEOSOPHIST, containing an article on my husband, Edward Bellamy, written by Fred Bell of the Bellamy League in South Africa, has just reached me, and I desire to extend my thanks to you for sending it. Many of Mr. Bellamy's most ardent disciples throughout the world are Theosophists, and this article, we hope, may be the means of calling the attention of others to the beauty and the soundness of his economic philosophy towards which the world seems now to be steadily moving. (Mrs.) EDWARD BELLAMY.
In another shameful episode in the history of U.S. jurisprudence, the Supreme Court ruled in the infamous 1927 Buck v. Bell case that the State of Virginia had had the right to sterilize a woman named Carrie Buck against her will, based solely on the (spurious) criteria that she was “feeble-minded” and promiscuous, with Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes concluding, “Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”
The United Nations now regards forced sterilization as a crime against humanity.
