NBC Busted for Removing God from Pledge

For its opening of its coverage of the 2011 U.S. Open championship, NBC used a montage that included children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. So far, so good. However, activist employees of NBC chose to delete the words, “under God” from the pledge.

Had it gone unnoticed, this sort of practice would likely escalate exponentially. Unfortunately for NBC, the public did notice…and the public did not keep silent about their rage. Eventually, NBC issued a formal apology to members of Congress for its “mistake.” In a letter to U.S. lawmakers, NBC said that they were trying to produce a patriotic piece but their good intentions were undermined by a serious error in judgment by a small group of people within NBC, and those people have been reprimanded.

NBC was quick to tell Congress that the removal of God from the pledge was not approved by any senior NBC officials. Rather than expressing genuine regret over the removal of God from the pledge, NBC seemed to be more interested in the negative light that was cast over NBC by the publicity associated with the event. “It was an inexcusable mistake in judgment and it will not be repeated,” said NBC.

Okay, NBC “apologized” for the omission from the pledge, but was it a heart-felt apology? I doubt it. Most likely, NBC’s apology can be compared to a six year old kid’s apology for kicking his brother. He may be apologizing on the outside, but on the inside, he’s reveling in his brother’s pain. How did the video ever get aired in the first place? An organization as large as NBC could not have sent the altered video out on the air waves without someone in management knowing about it.

We live in a society where there are increasing efforts to remove all mention of religion from public life. Apology or not, NBC’s airing of that altered Pledge of Allegiance is a victory for those who do not want God to be mentioned in public.

To see in a nut-shell the many seemingly unrelated societal changes that are happening under our noses, read Shadow Truth: The Ultimate Deception by Larry J Tate. This book will remove the shades from your eyes and make you aware of how dangerously close we are to becoming a world of slaves to a small ruling class.
