Family sues N.J. district over 'under God' in pledge

So, a lot of people are scoffing at this and calling it a part of the “atheist agenda” or the “liberal” agenda… and I’m extremely concerned and frustrated by that. 
Lets look at the context of when “Under God” was placed into the pledge: I don’t know how many of you know this, but this part of the Pledge wasn’t added until 1954. This was all during a part of history where we were trying to separate ourselves from Communism. It was the Red Scare, and we were at an arms race buildup with Russia. Truman announced that we would be operating under the “Truman Doctrine”, basically avoiding the spread of communism and helping non-communist states stay where they are. Back home, we were trialing Hollywood actors, directors, hell, even Walt Disney himself, convicting them and seeing if they had ANY “communist” ties. The McCarthy age, as many have described it. People would loose their JOBS over it.
Also, propaganda was being shoved down our throats left and right. There was a pretty popular video going around called “Make Freedom Mine”, that I will post the link to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8D6d6_-Vngo
All of this, to denounce communism. So, in addition, in 1954, we were trying ESPECIALLY hard to separate the US from communism. We were fighting the “godless communists”. So, here comes what this whole article is about: it was an act of American nationalism, spreading the idea that we were a Christian Capitalist nation who would NOT give into the terror of communism. 

Guys….The USSR fell in 1991. The communist evasion is OVER. It was not only ridiculous of us to do it then, but it’s ridiculous now. 


We have an Amendment to our Constitution that states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”(along with free speech and whatnot. But, what this part of the Pledge does, is respect Christianity. It not only goes against the Constitution, but also goes against the NJ state constitution, might I add. Where are the “Constitutionalists” in this?! This isn’t about a “liberal” agenda, or the “atheist” agenda. These have been turned into very dirty words by the right wing media, and it’s so frustrating dealing with! If you want to enforce our constitution and have everyone abide by our rules *cough cough GOP cough cough*, then don’t cherry pick. Do your homework, people.

So I came home from school to see my 7 year old sister putting skittles with my antidepressants, I went up to her and asked “Hey what you doing?” She looked at me, smiled and said “Skittles make me happy so I put them with your medicine that makes you happy so you can be extra happy.” That was the cutest thing i’ve ever heard.

how can you not reblog this

"malala is a role model for EVERY LITTLE GIRL regardless of race and religion"
no no n

no no fuck stop it
it is not regardless of race and religion she is a role model SPECIFICALLY for muslim little girls around the world. little white girls around the world have TONS of role models. everywhere. literally all over television, books, you name it. admire Malala, yes. that’s not what is being said. do not take something that is meant for a specific culture simply because you want it.

do..you.. know anything about Malala?  because I’m pretty sure she would read what you just said and be severely disappointed.
this post makes me so angry.  you are actually implying that this little girl is not allowed to be inspired by Malala because this girl isn’t Muslim, and that is just… so wrong.  That’s terrible.  


My philosophy of non-violence was only meant for Indians! Everyone else should just ignore me.

My charity was only meant to inspire my native Albanians. Everyone else should just forget about it
My courage and perseverance should only be a light unto fellow disabled people. Other people should realize I am just “not for them.”

My discoveries? GERMANS ONLY!
My charity work was really only meant to inspire Brits, not actually help anyone who isn’t my skin color and nationality.

I only care about Tibet. The rest of the world can suck it!
….seriously?
