NBC Takes “Under God” Out of Pledge During U.S. Open Coverage

Who's whining?

Godless liberal media

What are they whining about?

Rory McIlroy held on to win the 2011 U.S. Open, and Tiger Woods didn’t even participate (busy driving his long wood into cocktail waitresses), yet controversy still lingered after the final round ended and fans dispersed. Apparently, some ignoramus at NBC went on an extremely offensive power trip, removing the words “Under God” from our nation’s Pledge of Allegiance during the tournament’s coverage this past weekend. The omission of this piece immediately sparked outrage that rang out all over the country, causing NBC to issue an apology before tournament coverage even came to a close.

While I find this action to be completely insensitive and ridiculous, it’s not just because of the specific words they removed. Screwing with our Pledge of Allegiance in any way is completely unacceptable. If they’d change the opening line to say “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the best country in the whole damn world,” I’d still be up-in-arms asking for the head of whichever moron thought he could edit a tradition of the United States of America without consequence. The entire point of NBC’s piece was to address the patriotic fact this is OUR tournament, taking place in OUR nation’s capitol. Why screw with that lovely sentiment by forgetting that OUR God is part of the pledge whether you attempt to edit him from your broadcast or not?

Let's hear your thoughts.

  1. Who fucking cares? It’s not hurting ANYONE you whiny conservative. It was put into law in 1957 after we thought Communist Russia was atheist. Wrong yet again. Stalin wanted to be a priest in Georgia before he went to Russia and became a Communist. Fuck you, ya wing nut! Stop complaining about liberals and get a legitimate job.

  2. Stalin didn’t want to be a priest, he was an avowed apostate in his youth. But AmerBaldEagle is correct:
    “Screwing with our Pledge of Allegiance in any way is completely unacceptable.”

    I prefer the original:

    I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, with liberty and justice for all.

  3. Also the Pledge of Allegiance was written by a Francis Bellamy in 1892, an American Baptist and Christian Socialist who originally didn’t put “under God” instead he wanted to put equality and fraternity. It was only in 1954, when “under God” was added to the pledge

  4. Too bad it was actually conservatives who edited the original. The original is not only more true to what America was meant to stand for, but it also flows better (read Fletchy D’s post).

  5. religious nuts put god in the pledge in 1957, and I remember when they did it. in school as a kid i thought to myself, “why this?” there aint no god that i can see.
