I Pledge Allegiance

By Del Duduit

This is not a doom-and-gloom post, though it might seem like one when you peruse it for the first time.

Over the past few years, I have posted a plethora of patriotic blogs and have established my love of God, family and country without apology.

I am proud to be an American and believe the Lord has blessed this great nation, despite some intentional foolishness from many on the left.

I respect a difference of opinion because not everyone can be right, like I am most of the time. But I appreciate people who can hold their own views and explain to me why they have been misguided.

But what I cannot comprehend is how some ignorant people can be placed in positions of authority who have absolutely no clue in life. Who votes for ilk like AOC and the other three stooges?

A different interpretation can lead to a unique approach and provide a solution. Right?

Wrong. Here are a few examples where I believe unpatriotic citizens have infiltrated our government, even at the lowest levels.

I’ll begin in California (no surprise because this is where illegal invaders are welcomed more than natural born citizens.)

A city “lawmaker” wants to see the Pledge of Allegiance eradicated from Arcata City Council meetings.

Paul Pitino told a newspaper in August that he would love to see the pledge tossed out like the garbage. In 2018, the same socialist-left-winger led the charge when the council removed a statue of President William McKinley because he said McKinley was a racist.

He espoused the pledge to our flag has no place in council meetings in the Golden State.

My hope and prayer is for California to be released from the United States where it can form its own country and live in the crime-infested filth it has invited and welcomed with outstretched and needle-marked arms. (A side note, all my friends who live there can come to Ohio — we have room.)

Hey Paul – this is for you. I’d ask that he place his hand over his heart, but odds are he doesn’t have one.

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

In Indiana, the heartland of America, a member of the South Shore Convention and Visitor’s Authority refused to recite the pledge because it has “white nationalist origins.”

Raymundo Garcia told a local newspaper that the pledge is filled with hypocrisy and originated from people who were racists.

Where do these people come from? Who votes or appoints people like this, who obviously didn’t learn anything in history classes? Why they are celebrated and lifted up in society as heroes for their bravery leaves me shaking my head.

The only brave people I think of are the men and women who died so nitwits like Raymundo can exercise his first amendment rights.

I wonder if Raymundo would go into battle for my right to cite the Pledge of Allegiance. I think not.

Hey Raymundo; this is for you.

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and  to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Let’s go down south to Florida where a teacher was suspended from his classroom because he scolded students when they refused to stand for the pledge.

Daniel Goodman was removed from his class room because he had the guts to stand up to punks who have no idea why they enjoy freedom.

The teacher was reprimanded for trying to teach patriotism and pride in America to selfish and uninformed brats.

I wonder how the students would react if they were on a battlefield defending this nation. Better yet, ship them to California where they will fit in just fine.

Hey kids, this is for you (if you can actually read.)

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

We are inundated daily with Fake News that glorifies people who stand up against America and its bold and diverse history.

People who spew hatred and demonize the United States earn the top-of-the-fold headline or are given unlimited time on the nightly news.

On the other hand, real heroes and Americans are ridiculed or scoffed at by the left.

I firmly believe that people who have a real hatred for this country have infiltrated influential positions in society.

The scheme has taken a long time, but it’s near completion.

Un-Americans are now inside our House of Representatives and all throughout our media and school systems. Over the past four or five years, they have even slithered into the most sacred of all arenas, the sports world.

The NFL took a beating in the ratings the past two years because high-priced athletes thought it was cool to take a knee in protest instead of showing respect for the USA.

I believe that real Americans have awakened and are ready to take a stand.

We have had enough.

American pride is about to rise and kick some un-patriotic butt.

Hey – I can say that because Sleepy Joe said he would like to punch President Trump in the mouth. I’ll claim the famous left double-standard for me this one time.

The flag will be honored and revered–not for the cloth but for the symbolism.

President Ronald Reagan said this:

“In honoring our flag, we honor the American men and women who have courageously fought and died for it over the last 200 years—patriots who set an ideal above any consideration of self and who suffered for it the greatest hardships. Our flag flies free today because of their sacrifice.”

That’s why we say the Pledge of Allegiance. Not for country-hating council members, or convention and visitor authority members, or even liberal school board members.

We say it because this nation is great because it stands for freedom.

And freedom gives attention-seeking bigots the right to speak their minds too – even if they cannot see their own hypocrisy. That’s why I’m here.

America is great, because the majority still honors God and supports Israel.

And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 12: 3)

The loud-mouth left-wing socialist mobs garner the media attention and it fuels them to continue their parade of disdain for the United States.

We’ve had enough of liberals shoving their radical agendas down our throats. It is time. Stand up, place your hand over your heart, defend this great Nation, and take pride in America.

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

  1. Great article, However, being a bit of a cynic, I’m afraid that you’re “carrying the coals to Newcastle”. Unfortunately, for our country, we’re living at a time where the confluence of several negative aspects (breakup of the family, a rising culture of narcissism, a failed educational system and the explosion of social media) have served to relegate our country to an almost Third World status.

    I’m not sure how we can ever reverse this trend. It seems that our secondary schools have never met a fad that they haven’t liked. The result has been a generation of students who consistantly test near the bottom of the developed nations (24th in Science, 39th in Math and 23d in Reading). Of course, these students test FIRST in the area of self esteem and perhaps this is where many of our problems lay. When students such as these have such poor academic training, it is no wonder that their minds can do little more than parrot the garbage they hear, “America was never great”, “America was built on slavery”, “America is a country of oppression”, well; you get the picture. (It will be interesting to see how many high school teachers utilize the “1619 Project”, that is being put out by the New York Times, in their lesson plans.)

    For me, it is particularly depressing to see that nearly three out of four young men cannot even qualify for the military because they are too fat, too stupid or too drugged up to pass even the bare minimums. Of course, the military is not for everyone but when I read that many young women do not want to get married because there simply aren’t enough “eligible” young men, well, that’s a cause for concern.

    Is there time for this country to right itself? Maybe, but I believe that time is running out.


  2. Del, Thanks for saying what most shrink away from.
    God has me planted in SoCal and I do all I can to shine the light of God’s love and truth. I love God and I love this country. My Dad served in the Air Force and my son is currently serving this great nation.
    Believe it or not, there are other God fearing-praying-pledge of Allegiance saying-patriots like me. Sadly, we are in the minority. Although I live in a fairly conservative pocket, I certainly would not feel safe going out in public wearing a MAGA hat.
    California needs prayer! Our country needs prayer!
    Thanks for this call to action.
    God bless you and God bless America 🇺🇸


  3. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands. One nation, under God, indivisible, with justice and liberty for all! Those political pundits and misguided individuals who fail to recognize and respect the values our nation was founded upon have the right; in the privacy of their own minds. Not in my nation’s classrooms, courtrooms, boardrooms, or the halls of Congress and any other U.S. government office. My recommendation is that when they do so, they are immediately removed from any position (student, official, etc.) that relies on U.S. taxpayer funding, they are sent to Kalifornia, and they are barred from re-entry into my United States of America. Will continue praying for our nation to repent and turn from their wicked ways.


  4. Amen, Del, and amen again!!! We have to stand up to those whose desire is to malign and tear down this country, our values and our morals. Like you, I’ve had it up to my neck with the raging leftists and the fake media that supports them. If they don’t like America, then MOVE!
