NBC Sports Removes ‘Under God’ From Kids Saying Pledge of Allegiance

In its intro to the 2011 U.S. Open golf tournament, NBC Sports had a heart stirring montage of Old Glory, school kids reciting the pledge of allegiance, all intercut with some of golf’s biggest contemporary stars. It had everything: resounding music, patriotism, and golf. But one thing it didn’t have… the whole pledge. It seems NBC sort of forgot the “under God” part of the pledge.

That’s right, NBC cut out the part where the kids say “under God,” as in “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

This was obviously done on purpose. The video of the kids saying the allegiance goes from “one nation” and skips ahead to “with liberty and justice for all.”

NBC absolutely, positively meant to cut out the reference to God in the pledge. There is but one reason they did this. NBC indulged a PC effort to expunge God from our national pledge of allegiance.

There can be NO other explanation.

NBC sportscaster Dan Hicks later gave one of those non apology appoligies, one of those “we are sorry if you were offended” deals later in the broadcast.

No American should accept this weak, last second apology. Everyone should contact these un-American cretins and complain. You can do so at http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/23071620.
