Stevieslaw: Trump Demands Pledge

President Trump, clearly playing to his strength, doubled down today by calling for all football players to recite the pledge of allegiance after each touchdown is scored. He said demanding the pledge would root out those players that had become unpatriotic between scoring drives. “Who could object to that?” Trump tweeted.

White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, “President Trump’s statement is not hyperbole. There is ample historical precedent for demanding a continuous pledge of loyalty.”

“For example,” said Sanders, “During World War II, aviators on the island of Pianosa were required to pledge loyalty and allegiance before being permitted to eat, sleep, or fly bombing missions. The campaign—known as the great loyalty oath campaign—was very successful at rooting out traitors at the very moment they turned against America.”

N.Y. Times reporter, Glenn Thrush, pointed out that the incident Ms. Huckabee was referring to was right out of the novel, Catch 22, by Joseph Heller. He went on to commend her for making a statement that at least had some anchor in reality—even if that reality was fiction.

Fox News, in a show of solidarity with the President, will have their anchors recite the pledge before each story. And Rush Limbaugh, not to be outdone, said he will recite the pledge over and over on his show. “No one is more patriotic than I am,” said Rush.

    Coming back to this, our Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn wouldn’t sing the national anthem ‘God save the queen’ because he is opposed to the royal family. The Tory party and right-wing press blasted him for it for months. Because he had an opinion they didn’t like in our society? Feels like the same thing, just on a different side of the pond.

      It’s a bit of the same, I think. Imagine if the “Royal Family Police force” consistently gunned down Corbin’s friends and relatives–easily recognizable by a red stripe on their foreheads and no one ever went to jail for pulling the trigger. Racism just won’t go away here. In some places, it is more than condoned by the government.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could definitely be one of the very best in its field. Superb blog!|
