Actress Jessica Alba asks voters to pledge allegiance to Obama
The Examiner ^ | September 20, 2012 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 09/20/2012 2:19:52 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued

Actress Jessica Alba uses the Pledge of Allegiance as an example of the campaign in an email to supporters.

“Growing up, my classmates and I started every day with a ritual: We’d stand up, put our right hand over our hearts, and say the Pledge of Allegiance,” explains Alba. “To me, that gesture was a promise. A promise to be involved and engaged in this country’s future. A promise to work for liberty and justice — and for affordable education, health care, and equality — for all.”

Alba joins Hollywood actresses Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson by photographing herself with her hand on her heart pledging to vote for Obama.

“That’s why all across the country, people like you and I are proudly writing down our reasons for getting involved, and then taking the pledge — to vote.”

Obama campaign staffers have also begun posting photos of themselves with the pledge.

“Make sure you’re ready to vote this fall,” Alba writes. “Putting your hand over your heart is making a promise. Casting your ballot is keeping it.”

Pledging allegiance to an individual. Didn’t people do that in Nazi Germany?

In Hollywired, stupidity has no bounds.

This bimbo is obviously getting triple duty out of her single functioning brain cell.

Strophe 1
Vorwärts! Vorwärts!
Schmettern die hellen Fanfaren,
Vorwärts! Vorwärts!
Jugend kennt keine Gefahren.
Deutschland, du wirst leuchtend stehn
Mögen wir auch untergehn.
Vorwärts! Vorwärts!
Schmettern die hellen Fanfaren,
Vorwärts! Vorwärts!
Jugend kennt keine Gefahren.
Ist das Ziel auch noch so hoch,
Jugend zwingt es doch.

Refrain:
Uns’re Fahne flattert uns voran.
In die Zukunft ziehen wir Mann für Mann
Wir marschieren für Hitler
Durch Nacht und durch Not
Mit der Fahne der Jugend
Für Freiheit und Brot.
Uns’re Fahne flattert uns voran,
Uns’re Fahne ist die neue Zeit.
Und die Fahne führt uns in die Ewigkeit!
Ja die Fahne ist mehr als der Tod!

Strophe 2
Jugend! Jugend!
Wir sind der Zukunft Soldaten.
Jugend! Jugend!
Träger der kommenden Taten.
Ja, durch unsre Fäuste fällt
Wer sich uns entgegenstellt
Jugend! Jugend!
Wir sind der Zukunft Soldaten.
Jugend! Jugend!
Träger der kommenden Taten.
Führer, wir gehören dir,
Wir Kameraden, dir!

Question: why ping libertarians? This doesn’t look libertarian at all to me.

Maybe we can pledge "My Life for You!" like the Trashcan Man in The Stand.

Really?

The last time the people of a country pledged allegiance to their "leader" instead of to their country was in the late 30's.

We all know how that turned out.

There are millions of people who have nightmares about what happened then to this very day.

Ms Alba obviously has not a clue as to what happened so many years ago, and obviously have no clue as to what she is asking people to do.
