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?

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!

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.

I pinged Libertarians to show how demented Obama’s most fervent supporters are. This illustrates how support for Big Government can morph into state worship.

Hey Alba, once you start pledging an allegiance to a man, and not the flag of our country, you are one step from slavery.

History, Jessica, teaches us some very harsh lessons.

History is worth reading, lest we repeat it.

When Hitler came to power, one of his innovations was to have people—especially the military and those who served him politically—take oaths to support HIM, personally, rather than to the service of the country.

Those who are ignorant of history are condemned to repeat it.

If she is that interested in making education and health care affordable I am sure she has emptied her bank account and given it to needy students and sick people. What? She just wants me to pay for them? Never mind...

Ah, got it.

Statism is a really f--ed up religion; it's 'god' will never acknowledge you as a person and will be all too glad to destroy you or your life's work, without the slightest thought or provocation. (I mean, look at what they do to people who try to buy/sell/drink raw milk.)

Actors, celebrities and the media will continue to lick the boots of their socialist overlords until the socialists begin to kill them, but by then no one will care.

This is precisely the reason I can never fathom how any freeper would go see a Hollywood produced movie, purchase “popular music”, or otherwise support anything from the “entertainment industry”. And yet it seems every few months or so we see a thread about how good such and such a movie was, or how good such and such contestant on a tv show was. This supposed “actress” chick has the brains of a bacteria.
