Porky Pig Gets Flag Day Right

by Don Wharton

Today is Flag Day. The Pledge of Allegiance did not have the oppressive phrase “under God” in it before the 1950's. Below is Porky Pig reciting the Pledge of Allegiance as it should be. Thanks to Roy Speckhardt for the reference.

My posting of this is to underscore my preference that the under God phrase be removed. It should not be taken to imply that we should have an excessive feeling of pro-American nationalism. In fact, the move toward the nutcase right wing with the last election should make every a bit more cautious about accepting what comes out of our legislature.
