YMMV: Old Glory

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: This 1939 cartoon was a not-at-all-subtle propaganda piece made to tell kids why they should care about reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. About that…
    1. At the time, the Pledge was still normally performed using the Bellamy Salute, which was dropped three years later due to it looking way too much like the Nazi "Sieg Heil".
    2. This cartoon was made just as numerous cases regarding the Pledge started making their way through the federal courts. Although a 1940 case established that schools could compel children to recite the Pledge, a case just three years later, West Virginia v Barnett, overturned that and started the Supreme Court's tendency to strike down states' powers to mandate the Pledge.note
