The Pledge -- A 21st-Century Reboot: "I pledge subservience to the logos of the corporate-controlled states of America, and to the multinationals for which they stand, one market under capitalist elite, unregulated, with covert surveillance and consumer debt for all."
This pledge is dedicated with sincere disdain to Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and their countless minions of imitators -- Pied Piper purveyors of propaganda; broadcasters of revisionist history working to corrode the fabric of American unity through the unceasing repetition of distorted facts, half-truths, lies and innuendo.
Daily these demagogues of the airwaves define reality for the simple-minded and uneducated while preying on hidden fears and insidiously fostering bigotry. Pitting neighbor against neighbor in an endless series of contrived political battles, they succeeded in rendering our once prosperous nation without a functioning government recently. Wrapped in the vestments of patriotism and Christianity, their orations continue to dismantle constitutional and legislative safeguards, delivering the people of America to those who would exploit us for economic gain and the rule of facism.
