Pledge of Allegiance
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
The Pledge of Allegiance is a oath of allegiance to the United States of America, its flag, and everything it stands for: Christianity, white supremacy, conservatism, fascism, etc. It is law for all residents of the country to recite it every day. Those that refuse to make the pledge always disappear mysteriously within a week. Witnesses report seeing black helicopters carry them away. Others maintain that they are struck down by a bolt of malice by God.
The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy and published in the September 8 issue of Youth's Companion, a children's magazine. The Pledge was allegedly written for the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's discovery of the New World. This was actually a cover story put in place by the government. The pledge was developed as a simple form of brainwashing by Bellamy, a scientist posing a baptist minister. At the time, the government was planning to invade The Philippines, Cuba, and Puerto Rico for no apparent reason, so to prevent people from asking "Why the hell did we invade some stupid islands that no one cares about?", the government funded brainwashing. The original pledge of allegiance, used from 1892 to 1923, when like this:
|I pledge allegiance to my flag and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all. I also pledge that I will not criticize the government for starting or getting involved in a pointless war and if i break my word, it is the duty of anyone near me to murder me on the on the spot.|
Bellamy also came up with a salute to be done with the Pledge (as seen in the picture to the right). When the reciter got to "my flag", he/she would raise his/her arm with the hand held pointing toward the flag, the palm downward. This salute would later inspire the Nazi salute.
In 1923, the government removed the part about "not criticizing the government about pointless wars" after someone noticed that that section was there. In an effort to cover their tracks, the government removed all traces of the passage and has denied its existence ever since. The government, in an act of pure greed, also changed "my flag" to "the flag of the United States of America". This change was made because the government never learned to share and wanted all the flags for itself. The new Pledge went like this:
|I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all.|
Throughout World War II the "Bellamy Salute" was used during the pledge of allegiance, despite its strong resemblance to the Nazi Salute. After the war, holocaust survivor's were offended by the use of a Nazi-like salute. The Americans, then a polite and obliging people, changed the way they saluted the flag as not to offend their Jewish friends further.
In 1954, in a effort to reveal the true colors anti-Christian, and therefore unamerican, groups such as Communists, Socialists, Liberals, and Catholics, the words "under God" were added to the Pledge of Allegiance. The new, proper pledge that was jam-packed with family values and truth was so popular that everyone was required to say it. Anyone who didn't say the Pledge was obviously unamerican and could be taken away and shot. The First Enlightened Pledge, as it is called, read as follows:
|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 best excuse that unAmerican people who don't say the pledge can come up with is that saying the Pledge with "under god" is infringing on their constitutional rights to freedom of religion and freedom of speech, but that's just a bunch of bullshit.
edit The Modern Pledge
In 2007, the Pledge of Allegiance was rewritten by Fox "News" to be even more pro America. This Pledge is officially called the Second Enlightened Pledge of Allegiance to the Theocratic States of America. The currently used Pledge is written below.
I pledge allegiance to the god of the United States of America and to the republic for which kneels down before God the Almighty: one nation under God indivisible except by God with liberty and justice for God, by God, in the name of God, so help me God! AMEN!
