NBC, One Network Under Attack

In covering the US Open from Congressional Country Club outside Bethesda, Maryland, attempting to show an element of patriotism given the setting outside the nation’s capital, NBC produced a video segment presenting the Pledge of Allegiance. There were sweet little kids reciting with images of the military and flags. They recited:

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America,
And to the Republic for which it stands,
One nation, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

The radical God haters had their way in production, WHERE IS “UNDER GOD?”

Here’s NBC’s official apology:

“We began our coverage of this final round just about three hours ago and when we did it was our intent to begin the coverage of this U.S. Open Championship with a feature that captured the patriotism of our national championship being held in our nation’s capital for the third time. Regrettably, a portion of the Pledge of Allegiance that was in that feature was edited out. It was not done to upset anyone and we’d like to apologize to those of you who were offended by it.”

You always know pure BS when you see an apology that states “to those of you who were offended.” Those bastards offended our country for starters, the nation based on founding principles that read as follows:

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The leftist will perhaps point out that’s just the Declaration of Independence not the Constitution so it has no force of law. Really? It’s the very justification why this nation exists in the first place and the recognition that rights are bestowed by God and not man be it despot, king, or government is the very heart of our nation’s being.

As such, when it’s time to honor in ceremony our Republic, it’s only natural that we recognize that we are “one nation under God.” The freedom established that “congress shall make no law regarding the establishment of religion or the free expression thereof.” It is understood this is the basic understanding of a man’s relationship to his nation.

For those who attempt to articulate the Constitution as an exclusively secular document, perhaps they’ve overlooked the preamble, those words that frame the context the whole meaning of the Constitution defining its context infers exactly what’s in the Declaration:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Where do blessings come from?

The ideologues with their extreme secular outlook at NBC simply fail to grasp the significance of that which they find so easy to overlook. This so called mistake or oversight will not be taken lightly.
