TV Commercial’s ‘Political Nature’ Led National Network to Yank It. See If You Can Spot the Problem. If she’d pledged allegiance to Obama it would have probably been left up.

Cute, but pretty low production value. Put her in front of a flag our somewhere pretty. This looks like a proof-of-life video.

What does “One Nation under God” mean? I believe in God myself but to me that sounds as if only America is under God and no other country. Am I understanding that correctly?

For starters, those are two independent phrases, separated by a comma. Remember, “under God” was a later insertion. The original version was “one nation, indivisible” etc., possibly meaning to salve over strong feelings about the Civil War which was still living history at the time. “Under God” was added, as I understand it, as a specific refudiation of atheistic Communism and to distinguish ourselves from them.

Here’s a recitation of it, pre-1950s: http://youtu.be/33-5MbIE7eQ

Though I think PsychoDad’s explanation of “One Nation under God” is better.

I believe that the “Under God” was meant to represent that we are all united under God.

Multiculturalism means constant racial agitation, civil war, poverty, dictatorship and death. American patriotism means strength, plenty, stability, freedom and life. Only in bizzarro America is the later controversial while the former is not.

Just look at her, she’s obviously racist! I bet she even has an Ayrian Nation tattoo on the back of her neck! I see they combed her hair so that you couldn’t notice her mullet.
