    And a bigger BTW:

    Don't pull the liberal revisionism on the DP.

    This is the post you were responding to

    >"Originally Posted by APACHERAT
    It's called the Bellamy salute. Hitler stole it from America. Or maybe the Bellamy/Nazi salutes are a socialist thing ?

    Bellamy was an American progressive/socialist. He wrote the American Pledge of Allegiance and came up with the Bellamy salute that every American in school would recite while doing the Bellamy salute every morning.

    They dropped the salute in December of 1941 for some reason.

    You have to remember, most Marxist, socialist , progressives and many of the labor unions in America were supporters of Hitler. Until 1941 when Hitler attacked the Soviet Union. Hitler was no longer considered to be a fellow comrade. He became the enemy. The Nationalist Socialist (Nazis) was no longer considered to be a form of socialism but would all of a sudden become right wing. It's called revisionism to hide who Hitler's supporters were before 1941."<


    You've claimed this before, and I already pointed out once to you how that is a total lie. Yet you continue to spread it.

    What do you call someone who knowingly propagates a known falsehood?


    If you know of another reason why the Bellamy salute was dropped, let us know.

    American socialist supported Hitler until Hitler attacked their comrade, Stalin. That's the way it was back then. When everyone who lived back then is dead and buried, then rewrite history.
    My response to you had nothing to do with the Bellamy salute.

    i know but my comment was more on the disdain for having the olympics there. Americans often mistakenly view Owen's brief stint as a triumph over evil or whatever, not knowing that the black athletes were admired by even hitler. If he was jewish, that would be another matter, but still not worth the nauseating spectacle of 50k people doing the nazi salute.

    You didn't take the initiative to point out exactly what you were responding to.

    To get back on topic, I seem to remember that internationalist socialist flew the rainbow flag before the LGBT activist adopted it.

    Any connections do you think ?

    Yes I did. I used bold-faced type to point out exactly what part of your post I was referring to. The fact you couldn't figure that out is not my problem.

    This article can be found at the Montreal Gazette.

    I hope more cities will choose to protest the anti-gay laws in Russia by doing this. Hopefully we can get more Canadian cities to do it as well as some American cities. Do you think that your/nearest city would raise the LGBT flag?
    That'll show Russia!

    The LGBT community has been using the rainbow flag since the 1970s.

    Meet Gilbert Baker, the Man Who Invented the Gay Pride Rainbow Flag | TIME.com

    June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender pride month, and the rainbow flag — that iconic symbol for gay pride — is flying from Athens to San Francisco to Brazil.

    Enter artist Gilbert Baker, the man who first came up with the flag’s design some 34 years ago. After being discharged from the Army during the Vietman War, Baker settled in San Francisco, where he taught himself to sew and soon began crafting banners for gay marches and events, CBS Chicago reports. He eventually befriended Harvey Milk, the city’s first openly gay elected official. Given Baker’s influential role in the gay community, in 1978 the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade commissioned him to design a new symbol that could be used year after year. Hoping to represent diversity and acceptance, Baker soon settled on the image of a rainbow.

    “The rainbow is a part of nature and you have to be in the right place to see it,” Baker told CBS.

    But the International Co-operative Alliance say they created the rainbow flag over fifty years before there was even a gay bathhouse in San Fransico.
