Cute...but what the cartoon didn’t show was the old guy with the grey beard eating the spare ribs and ham sandwich behind the big stone monument after the end.

Odd to hear the Star Spangled Banner without “under God”, but that was added later.

Thanks for posting. I’ve never seen this 1939 cartoon before. Wikipedia says it was Porky’s second cartoon in color.

How far we’ve descended into Hell in seven short decades, huh?

Cute and politically correct! Porky omitted “under God” from the Pledge.

“Under God” was added in 1954. A version older than that would not include the phrase.

Thanks. Great memories. What ever happened to quality cartoons like this? They absolutely suck today. Poor kids.

“Under God” was added to the pledge in the 1950s.

Cartoon probably came out before those words were added.

He was reading from a Leftist revisionist text book. :)

As the visual map displayed in the cartoon indicates, the US only had 48 states at the time too.

Also note, at the 6:30 mark in the video, the voice over states:

"And when George Washington signed that document [the Constitution of the United States] he laid the foundation for our 'great democracy'"

The script should be modified to more specifically state: "And when George Washington signed the Constitution of the United States he laid the foundation for our great democratic republic.

The Modern version:

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Democracy for which it stands, one Nation indivisible, with EBT cards and Health Care for all.”

I always enjoy classic cartoons of every stripe but this one is really good for Independence Day. What a collection of political incorrectness — To Arms!! To Arms!! indeed. Add in the ever-larger INJUSTICE after running the list of the King’s offenses against the colonies and you certainly get a sense of history repeating itself, IMO.

It's a lot worse under Comrade Obama's form of "change".

"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.

The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."

A Landslide Mandate For Change

A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!

We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.

The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and people’s unity.

There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.

The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming

Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:

Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.

In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.

We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.

We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.

In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.

Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.

Isn’t it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?

Can’t we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?

And isn’t the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system – a system steeped in racism – no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?

All these things are within reach now!
