Nazis acquired their notorious Nazi salute from the USA’s Pledge of Allegiance to the flag.
For refusing to do the early American Nazi salute and chant robotically in unison in government schools (socialist schools) children were taken from their parents (permanently), people were beaten, jailed, imprisoned, tarred and feathered and even lynched. It is stunning to see today comments for compulsory pledging that express the same violent ideas. Schools are sometimes sued for persecuting students (another way that schools create sociopaths). The pledge was the origin of the Nazi salute and Nazi behavior (see the work of Dr. Rex Curry). Only the Nazi gesture has changed. The way things are going, the hand-over-the-heart will be as disturbing as America’s old Nazi salute.
*shakes fist* Damn you pledge of allegiance socialists!
