(E. Jeffrey Ludwig) Patriotism is under attack. The idea of the cultural Marxists on the left is to replace traditional patriotism with a different vision of the meaning of American nationalism from the vision that has obtained since 1776, although that traditional understanding and vision of the USA has gone through modifications over decades. Unwillingness to say the Pledge of Allegiance or even to stand for the Pledge is not a first step in that direction, but part of an endgame toward a revised understanding of what America is and what its role is in history. The readers of this article should not be surprised if legislation for a revised American flag is offered in the halls of Congress in the near future.
