Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Have the "secessionists" stopped saying the Pledge of Allegiance and wearing flag pins?

Or are those now things of the past?

Weren't these the same people who insisted that everyone step up, put their hands over their hearts, and make a solemn pledge (an oath) of their allegiance to "one nation...INDIVISIBLE..."
AND, to be even more visibly patriotic, wear a flag pin (the larger the better) on their suit lapels. Didn't they make a huge fuss over Obama's not wearing a flag pin during the 08 campaign?

I wonder what they're doing when they are at places where the Pledge is routinely recited?

5. The entire point of the Pledge is one country INDIVISIBLE

Tacking on "GOD" 70 years after it's written doesn't change that.

6. Wasn't it written after the Civil War just to underscore the Union?

I thought that WAS the impetus for the Pledge...
