NBC Filth Edit 'Under God' From Televised Pledge

Diminishing all they touch, as always.


CNN anchor rips NBC 'morons' who edited 'God' from Pledge

NBC continues to get ripped for twice editing out the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance during its Sunday coverage of Rory McIlroy's U.S. Open victory at Congressional Country Club outside Washington D.C.

CNN anchor Jack Cafferty called on NBC to fire the "morons" who took it upon themselves to edit tape of school age children reciting the Pledge.

"When your political correctness starts getting up my nose, that's wrong," declared Cafferty on Monday.

CNN anchor Wolf Biltzer agreed, saying NBC committed a "major blunder."

With some tweeters calling for a boycott of NBC, announcer Dan ***** apologized Sunday for editing out a "portion" of the Pledge.

But *****' on-air mea culpa didn't stop critics. So NBC issued a second apology Monday.

"We are aware of the distress this has caused many of our viewers and are taking the issue very seriously. Unfortunately, when producing the piece –- which was intended to capitalize on the patriotism of having our national championship played in our nation's capital –- a decision was made by a small group of people to edit portions of the Pledge of Allegiance. This was a bad decision.," it reads.

"As soon as management became aware of this decision and the controversy it justifiably created, it immediately took steps to correct it resulting in an on-air apology provided by NBC Sports' lead golf commentator Dan *****. It was not the intent of NBC to upset anyone and we sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended."

NBC spokesman Adam Freifeld wouldn't say who the "small group" was or if anybody would be fired. Here's video of Cafferty going off on NBC:

Re: NBC Filth Edit 'Under God' From Televised Pled

NBC was out of line... even though, historically, the phrase "under God" is reletively new.


1892
"I pledge allegiance to my flag and the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."
1892 to 1923
"I pledge allegiance to my flag and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."
1923 to 1924
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."
1924 to 1954
"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."
1954 to Present
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

The 1954 to Present version is the official version... whether you agree with it or not... it is what it is.
Don't approve of it? Petition congress to change it. That's how it was changed in the past.
Personally... I like the 1892 version, but don't complain about the recent version.

Re: NBC Filth Edit 'Under God' From Televised Pled

Who cares? Why do we as a nation feel the need to profess some loyalty to a mythical sky fairy?

Can those who don't fall for the lie of religion, insert their own claim....like, "Under Elvis"...or "Under the Easter Bunny"?

Did you just make that part up? In 1892 all nations were not republics.
All nations could not make the claim to being indivisible... which implies they consist of many seperate parts (states?).
The part about liberty and justice for all while not achieved stands as an ideal to be worked for.

Re: NBC Filth Edit 'Under God' From Televised Pled

Even atheists can find NBC's censorship of Pledge wrong

Brandon Schlacht

Detroit Atheism Examiner

During the telecast of the U.S. Open, NBC edited out a segment of the Pledge of Allegiance. The segment was, “One God, Indivisible.” The broadcaster has received quite the backlash, but in a nation where John Lennon’s “Imagine” is edited so as to protect the sensitivities of the religious, why is it surprising that censors are now editing out segments to protect the sensitivities of the nonreligious? One real issue is of course the inclusion of “Under God” in the Pledge itself, since it was a reactionary response to the ‘atheist’ Soviet Union, but for now, we should focus on the censorship itself.
The nonreligious should be outraged by this as well; just as it is wrong to censor anti-religious lyrics from a song, it is wrong to censor the Pledge. With this said, many will happily snicker at the event, and view it as a cosmic rebuttal. The religious can see why we are annoyed now. This is a purely human reaction. Once the dust settles, the faithful and faithless should finally agree on one thing; it’s time to stop censoring people based on religious or nonreligious stances. The question of whether “Under God” should be there at all is another debate for another time, but for now both sides need to agree on one thing; it is time to stop being outraged because someone disagrees with your personal beliefs.


I doubt many atheists or agnostics were calling to harass NBC regarding the Pledge, but in this day, a network is wise to be cautious. The nonreligious are becoming more vocal, and rightfully so; there has been censorship on content deemed atheistic for years. This was a reactionary move, due in large part to the stereotypes that have been haunting the nonreligious for years. The religious have taken issue with the nonreligious for ages. Again using John Lennon as an example, some were even murdered because of their views. The religious have long tried to eliminate the nonreligious voice. It’s time to agree to stop, and start a new discussion. Eliminating a voice does not help this cause. NBC was wrong, but many in the religious community have turned a blind eye whenever it eliminates the other view.
This should serve as a warning to both sides; censorship is not the answer. Whether religious or not, when a song, poem, or the current incarnation of the Pledge of Allegiance, there should be a massive response, and one that condemns the censor. To those religious folks who were upset over this incident, welcome to our side of the fence.

NBC did not want to take a chance that anyone would not understand that they are communist scum.

But...not to worry, really...

We know. we know!

It began as an intensive communing with salient points of our national history, from the Declaration of Independence onwards; with the makings of the Constitution...with the meaning of the Civil War; with the aspiration of the people...
The true reason for allegiance to the Flag is the 'republic for which it stands.' ...And what does that vast thing, the Republic mean? It is the concise political word for the Nation - the One Nation which the Civil War was fought to prove. To make that One Nation idea clear, we must specify that it is indivisible, as Webster and Lincoln used to repeat in their great speeches. And its future?
Just here arose the temptation of the historic slogan of the French Revolution which meant so much to Jefferson and his friends, 'Liberty, equality, fraternity.' No, that would be too fanciful, too many thousands of years off in realization. But we as a nation do stand square on the doctrine of liberty and justice for all..."
Nothing there about this being a pledge for all nations.
Also, please note from your quote; "In his Pledge, he is expressing the ideas of his first cousin, Edward Bellamy, author of the American socialist utopian novels, Looking Backward (1888) and Equality(1897)."
Nothing there about a pledge for all nations. It does state, though, that he was inspired by his ideas for our nation.

Apparently you made that part of your statement up.

Re: NBC Filth Edit 'Under God' From Televised Pled

The whole point, which many people seem perfectly willing to overlook, is;

"Once the dust settles, the faithful and faithless should finally agree on one thing; it’s time to stop censoring people based on religious or nonreligious stances. The question of whether “Under God” should be there at all is another debate for another time, but for now both sides need to agree on one thing; it is time to stop being outraged because someone disagrees with your personal beliefs."
