The Bellamy Salute in The Pledge of Allegiance

“When Fascism Comes To America, It Will Be Wrapped in the Flag!” —Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951)
The following historical information is shocking and fascinating at the same time. It all started when I read an article about the Bellamy salute being used in the Pledge of Allegiance from 1892 to 1942. If you look at the adjacent photo, you will see that the Bellamy salute is the Nazi salute that Hitler incorporated when he came to power.
The salute was included with the Pledge of Allegiance written by Francis Bellamy, who was a FREEMASON. The original pledge was worded as follows: “I pledge allegiance to the flag and the republic for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” It turns out that “under God” was not included until 1954 due to the “Communist scare.”
The salute was dropped in December of 1942 when Congress amended the flag code, due to Hitler’s controversial use of the salute. That’s when they replaced it with the hand on the heart. But there’s more (of course).
Since we both know that Hitler was an occultist and that Freemasons love hand signs, I figured there had to be a Masonic meaning behind the salute. So, I decided to research it. Turns out, it is indeed a Rosicrucian hand sign known as the “sign of Zelator.” To the Rosicrucians, “Zelator” means “initiate of the Mysteries.” It is disturbing to know that this was being foisted on children under the guise of “honoring the flag” and “pledging allegiance.” I am attaching articles with the information I learned, along with a photo of the Bellamy salute.
