“Freedom-Loving” Conservatives Force Idolatrous Pledge Written By A Socialist On Students In South Dakota

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Veterans groups are unsatisfied that high schools in the state of South Dakota are resistant to forced indoctrination. In the late 1800’s a Christian socialist named Frances Bellamy wrote a pledge of allegiance that was intended to help sell products for his flag business. Now today, these conservative veterans groups are angry at high schools who have chosen to devote their time to school work, rather than the bland recitation of Bellamy’s pledge.

Megyn Kelly spoke to the school board president James Boorman, who is a South Dakota lawmaker and veteran on Friday night. Boorman said, “The students that are going through our middle schools and high schools right now are the future leaders of our country. If they don’t understand where our country has come from, […] if they don’t understand the high cost of their liberty and freedom, then how are they going to lead our future country?”

A survey of parents and guardians found that 70 percent want the students to recite the pledge, which was originally accompanied in the United States by the Hitler salute, until fascism in Europe made it unpopular. Douglas C. Morrison, the Sioux Falls School board president said that he will propose the change for the school board to review.

Bellamy’s pledge read: “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all“.
