Democrats refusing to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance! In this case, though, the context actually improves the story. This takes place in Albany, where the New York state Senate remains locked in a power struggle in an evenly divided chamber. Rather than an insult to American patriotism, the Democrats here engaged in an insult to the intelligence of New Yorkers:

Welcome to the Idiocracy.
What a bunch of nutless wonders. And the man being cowed by the woman who pulled him down. NY’rs be PO’d!
I know that you’ve only been here a month, so we hardly know each other, but, you sir, are an idiot.
The Bellemy salute is an interesting aside.
Sorry, but if more New Yorkers HAD intelligence there wouldn't be so many Democratic legislators.
Not for me - “indivisible”, “Inseperable”, BS. Just a stylized forced Union oath.
Oh, I missed the inseparable. Never mind.
Would like to say it was nice knowing you , but I don’t know you.
I know it’s a little different, but our family got a LOT of stares from people at our recent town annual parade, when we stood for each and every one of the flags that went by (bands, cars, trucks, floats, horses, etc.) We stood for most of the three hour parade, because of the flags. Every time we did, others around us and across the street did the same. So many veterans marching in the parade smiled over at my children, as they carried their large flags with such pride. I told my children to watch their faces — that sometimes, that is the only thanks they ever get for the sacrifices they made.
Parents are not teaching and passing on the respect of standing when the flag passes by. We have already had a class in “flag etiquette” (I homeschool, so I make everything a teaching opportunity).
It was created by a socialist who wanted to condition people into believing the federal government is all powerful and that states who refused its power grabs had no right to secede.
Wow, you got ALL that from the above pledge?
There must be some serious between the line meaning I fail to see as well as 99.9 % of us
I am teaching an etiquette “Manners and More” camp for girls next week. Never though about it, but your post inspired me. I am adding “Flag Etiquette” to my curriculum! Thanks for the inspiration!
Please point me to the source where it is documented "It (Pledge) was created by a socialist who wanted to condition people into believing the federal government is all powerful and that states who refused its power grabs had no right to secede.
Sorry, I don't see it. My tin hat has gotten very dull and in need of a shine to believe this pablum
I mean New York and California.
Well, if you are correct about the socialist and his desire to condition people and so on, then I have to tell you that his evil plan was not quite successful.
I said the Pledge of Allegiance every day when I was in elementary and high school.
I do NOT believe the Federal Government is all powerful. In fact, I work hard to do what I can to rein in the power of the Federal Government.
First it says he was a Christian socialist with a socialist utopian cousin. Second, it can be inferred that, as a socialist he would like people to believe the central government is all powerful in order for his wealth redistributionist policies to work. Finally, aluminum works better.
Pledging your allegiance to the Republic is pledging allegiance to the idea that our Republic is one nation under God never divided with liberty & justice for all its citizenry unlike the tyrannical monarchy.
So because he wrote the Pledge as a Christian socialist, that makes the "Pledge" a "Pledge" for central government that is all powerful in order to have wealth redistributionist policies enacted, even thought there is nothing in the "Pledge" implying so ?
I'm a conservative and I pledge "Prosperity, Love and Peace for all Mankind" Oh' No. I'm a moonbat !!!
Where do you stand on burning the flag, desecrating national monuments, and spitting on soldiers?
As long as the flag is your own and doing so doesn’t risk injury to others, who am I to stand in your way of making an a$$ of yourself? While I am opposed to the creation of monuments to the state, they are public property and are subject to the same laws as private property. Finally, spitting on another person can be construed as assault, and should be prosecuted as such. Of course I don’t sympathize with such people, as a soldier and somebody whose father experienced the same thing.
All consider this a monument to our heroic soldiers; not a monument to the state.
Well, almost all.
