Trump Supporter Michael Flynn is against the 1st Amendment
« on: November 15, 2021, 10:42:18 AM »
Do any of the Trump supporters here think this is OK?

I wonder if Flynn knows that the "One Nation under God" was added until the mid 1950's.   So the pledge has a much longer history with out those words than with it.

This statement flies in the face of all the US and the Constitution stands for.

It's almost as if guys like this are paid agents working for anti-religion groups. It's just a great way to make religion look nuts.

The pledge of allegiance was also written by a socialist, and he wanted it involve a certain arm movement that became wildly popular in a certain nation during the 1930's. I'm actually okay with the pledge being erased from history.

I would rather pledge to the Constitution but I guess Flynn has never read that.

Maybe he's one of those right wingers who in some ways admire the Taliban.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/27/opinion/alt-right-taliban.html

"As the Taliban swept through Afghanistan in August, a Gen Z alt-right group ran a Twitter account devoted to celebrating their progress. Tweets in Pashto juxtaposed two laughing Taliban fighters with pictures meant to represent American effeminacy. Another said, the words auto-translated into English, “Liberalism did not fail in Afghanistan because it was Afghanistan, it failed because it was not true. It failed America, Europe and the world see it.”

The account, now suspended, was just one example of the open admiration for the Taliban that’s developed within parts of the American right. The influential young white supremacist Nick Fuentes — an ally of the Arizona Republican congressman Paul Gosar and the anti-immigrant pundit Michelle Malkin — wrote on the encrypted app Telegram: “The Taliban is a conservative, religious force, the U.S. is godless and liberal. The defeat of the U.S. government in Afghanistan is unequivocally a positive development.” An account linked to the Proud Boys expressed respect for the way the Taliban “took back their national religion as law, and executed dissenters.”
