New Evidence that America=Hitler
Historians are confirming new discoveries regarding the history of Nazism in the USA, including the discovery that the salute of the horrid Party originated in the USATherefore, USA=Hitler right?
Dr. Curry showed that the USA's first Pledge of Allegiance used a straight-arm salute and it was the origin of the salute of the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis). Professor Curry helped to establish that it was not an ancient Roman salute, and that the "ancient Roman salute" is a myth.
Not exactly. It's obvious why someone at Indymedia has jumped to this conclusion and printed the article. Reading some of the source however indicates some of the Indymedia people may not like what else he had to say. It had nothing to do with Nazism and the USA at all:
RexCurry.net also exposed the “Nazi” cover-up. Many people use the word “Nazi” to cover-up for socialism by hiding the actual name of the horrid party: the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The practice is so widespread that most people who use the word “Nazi” are ignorant of what the abbreviation abbreviates. http://rexcurry.net/mediacover.htmlI don't agree with a lot of what Rex Curry has said, particularly the danger of his desire to expose "Nazis" as "National Socialists" and reduce the popular use of the former term, with the resultant possiblity of watering down the memory of Nazi activity versus bashing socialists.
For sure however, someone should have RTFA before reprinting it on Indymedia.
