I missed an earlier thread where people inquired about the salute to the flag. I am the person who made the historic discovery that the straight-armed salute of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis) came from the military salute in the USA, and from the original pledge of allegiance in government schools, and not from ancient Rome. http://rexcurry.net/pledgesalute.html

Three terms sum up popular myths: "Swastika" and "Nazi" and "Roman Salute." RexCurry.net exposed all three.
The "Roman salute" myth holds that the Nazi salute was from ancient Rome. The myth was refuted by the historic discovery that the salute of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis) came from a national socialist in the USA who used a straight-arm salute as part of the original pledge of allegiance.
http://rexcurry.net/pledgesalute.html
The pledge of allegiance was written by a self-proclaimed National Socialist in the USA in 1892 (Francis Bellamy) who promoted "military socialism" and operated the "Nationalist" magazine and spread the straight-arm salute via kids in schools, three decades before the Nazis adopted similar behavior.
RexCurry.net also exposed the "Nazi" myth, that Nazis hate socialists. The word "Nazi" hides the actual name of the horrid party: the National Socialist German Workers' Party. The practice is so widespread that most people who use the word "Nazi" are ignorant of what the abbreviation abbreviates and why it ties into the pledge of allegiance and to earlier National Socialists in the USA. http://rexcurry.net/mediacover.html
and http://rexcurry.net/swastikamedia.html
and http://rexcurry.net/swastikaweb.html
Nazis always referred to themselves as "National Socialists" and never as "Nazis" and they always used the word "hakenkreuz" and not "swastika."
The "Swastika myth" is that the symbol of the Nazis was a swastika, and used as their "good luck" sign, or reversed for "evil." The use of the word "swastika" coincides with "Nazi" to hide the symbol's meaning for the horrid Party: Socialism.
Today, most people would never make the connection between the swastika's "S" shapes and "socialism" because most people do not know that the Nazis were the National Socialist German Workers' Party.
The trio of myths are examples of astounding historical facts that were deliberately shoved down Orwell's "memory hole."

This is grossly misleading, and I suspect purposely so. a) The magazine The Nationalist was the organ of the populist socialist Nationalist party, published from 1889-1891 (succeeded by The New Nation 1891-1894), and was Edward Bellamy's. Edward Bellamy was the author of Looking Backwards and Equality , and had a mildly socialist populist ideology. He was not a "National Socialist" in any modern meaning of the term.
His Talks on Nationalism (1938) are usesful to understand what lying bastards rexcurry.net and the similarly-named rexsy.ij.net are. Edward Bellamy learnt his social and political views at the knee of his father, a Baptist minister.
b) The Flag pledge was credited to both the editor of The Youth's Companion , James B. Upham, and the assistant editor, Francis Bellamy. This question was "settled" in 1939 by the US Flag association in favor of Francis Bellamy. The Youth's Companion was not The Nationalist .

c) Francis Bellamy, a cousin of Edward Bellamy, was a Christian socialist and was, like his father and uncle, a Baptist minister.

d) Nothing in 1892 was "National Socialist" in any way that term is understood in the modern world.

It does not tie in any way to the pledge of allegiance. I have no idea why these toads want to confuse real, although moderate, socialists like the Bellamys with the fake socialism of the Nazis. I have no idea why they would want to confuse sincere Christians who tried to follow the social Christian message with the anti-Christian pseudo-uebermenschen of the Nazis. It is clear that their revisionism rests on misunderstanding, half-digested information, and probably gross dishonesty.

You're right. Socialism IS Nazism. Communism IS fascism. They're all the same thing. The uncivilised world (Universe minus (inhabited planets + the U.S.A.)) is still under the grip of this socalism/Nazism/fascism/racism/intolerance problem and using ANY means (war, terrorism, U.N., sucking up, etc) to make sure we don't show them what liberty is. This is VERY SLOWLY changing, though terrorist-supporting places like Russia, Europe, China, Latin America, Australia, Canada, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia are going backwards.

YUCK! Libertarianism completes the circle back to fascism/communism/socialism/Nazism again, because the political square is not so much a square as a 4-D cube, but shaped like a sphere. In THIS case, so-called "libertarianism" borders Nazism/Communism, in their most extreme forms, which they always are in extremes. Communism is the idea that everyone can be equal. Sadly, this is NEVER the case except under capitalistic democracies. In Communism, those with all the power become evil. And in libertarianism, the people who had the power in Communism don't have the power, but the people who DO have the power become evil. So, it's the same thing. We must follow the paths of the aliens who came before us, and of U.S. history and advanced evolution to ensure that EVERYONE is TRULY EQUAL.

is based on at best stupidity. If these folks are not completely ignorant, then they are the kind of lying bastards that think that socialism and libertarianism are opposing principles.

As we ALL now know, they are clearly both the same exact evil that has plagued the uncivilised world since the dawn of time.
Your comments are grossly misleading, and I suspect purposely so. http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.htmla) The magazine The Nationalist was the organ of the socialist Nationalist party, published from 1889-1891 (succeeded by The New Nation 1891-1894), and was Edward Bellamy's. Edward Bellamy was the cousin and cohort of Francis Bellamy. Both of them worked with and contributed to the magazine. The only example of the magazine on the web is at http://rexcurry.net/pledgeapology.html The Bellamys had a wildly socialist ideology that they called "military socialism" in which they idolized the military and wanted it imposed by government on the entire economy, to nationalize everything, and to have government take over all schools, and eliminate all of the better alternatives, to use government schools to create an "industrial army" (a Bellamy term) and the pledge of allegiance in military formation with the original straight arm salute performed in unison every morning for 12 years at the ring of a government bell like Pavlov's lapdogs of the state was all part of the scheme.

They were "National Socialist" in every modern meaning of the term. His Talks on Nationalism (1938) and http://rexcurry.net/pledge1.html are useful to understand what lying bastards Martin Ambuhl and the his ilk are.
b) The Flag pledge was credited to both the editor of The Youth's Companion , James B. Upham, and the assistant editor, Francis Bellamy. This question was "settled" in 1939 by the US Flag association in favor of Francis Bellamy. The Youth's Companion was not The Nationalist . Here Martin is essentially correct in repeating my website and in not disputing what I said.c) Francis Bellamy, a cousin of Edward Bellamy, was also in the "Society of Christian Socialists" which he equated with his screwball national socialism dogma. Francis Bellamy was the cousin and cohort of Edward Bellamy. Both of them worked with and contributed to the Nationalist magazine. The only example of the magazine on the web is at The Bellamys had a wildly socialist ideology that they called "military socialism" in which they idolized the military and wanted it imposed by government on the entire economy, to nationalize everything, and to have government take over all schools, and eliminate all of the better alternatives, to use government schools to create an "industrial army" (a Bellamy term) and the pledge of allegiance in military formation with the original straight arm salute performed in unison every morning for 12 years at the ring of a government bell like Pavlov's lapdogs of the state was all part of the scheme.

d) The Bellamy dogma in 1892 was "National Socialist" in every way that term is
understood in the modern world. Martin is being absurd in claiming that nothing in 1892 was "National Socialist" in any way that term is understood in the modern world, as if he is implying that the National Socialist German Workers' Party was the first wacko group to think up the absurd dogman. They weren't. national Socialists in the USA were doing it 3 decades before the national Socialist German Workers' Party. Francis Bellamy was the local Leni Reifenstahl. The Bellamys were the first American Nazis.
The pledge of allegiance was written by a self-proclaimed National Socialist in the USA in 1892 (Francis Bellamy) who promoted ... what the abbreviation abbreviates and why it ties intothe pledge of allegiance and to earlier National Socialists in the USA.

It does tie in every way to the pledge of allegiance. I have no idea why these toads like Martin Ambuhl want to disassociate real lunatic national socialists like the Bellamys with the socialism of the National Socialist German Workers' Party, and why he wants to cover up for that horrid ideology. I have no idea why he would want to confuse sincere non-socialist Christians with the horrid totalitarianism espoused by the Bellamys and by the National Socialist German Workers' Party. It is clear that Martin Ambuhl's revisionism rests on misunderstanding, half-digested information, and probably gross dishonesty. It is clear that his attempt to push his *** is based on at best stupidity. If he is not completely ignorant, then he is the kind of lying *** that thinks that socialism and libertarianism are not opposing principles.
