If you’re excited about a caucus saying the Pledge of Allegiance, you’re excited about the wrong thing

No, seriously.

The AFA propaganda website, One News Now, has an article about the Iowa caucuses and they quote a first time caucus goer:

Mindy Breaux was one of those. A first-time caucus-goer and a homeschool mother of four, she tells OneNewsNow she was energized by the process.

“We went into the main hall and someone stood up and the first thing we did was recite the Pledge of Allegiance, which I was pretty excited about. I didn’t know they were going to do that,” she shares.

Yep.  That’s how low her expectations of other Americans happen to be – she was excited they said an organized Pledge.

    I got an unexpected gift from my sister, who came in from New Mexico today. It’s the American flag that was awarded to my father for his service in WWII, folded up, proper, just as it was the day it was given to our family after his death.

    I love the better aspects of, and things that make me very proud of my country, but the flag became such a symbol of jingoism and step-in-line politics under the George W. Bush years, that I don’t even like seeing it anymore.

    I hope this country gets it’s act back together in my lifetime, so I can open that flag up and feel proud of it. In my opinion, the flag is just a symbol we should use to designate our achievements, more then to claim territory. It should never be worshiped.

    Even without the God part that was added in the 50’s to make people step-in-line with Christianity, the pledge of allegiance is pretty awful.

    Richard – one of the things that baffles me is the willingness of so many Americans to confuse the symbol with the thing.
