I think I’ve finally figured out where all this talk about secession came from — and you won’t believe it.
It’s from the Pledge of Allegiance.
For the last few years, a few whackos on the left have been pushing to get the phrase “under God” out of the Pledge. (I happen to agree with them, but I also believe we have far more important things to worry about.) They’ve said it’s all about the separation of Church and State, but that’s just a smokescreen. The real reason is that when these liberals say the words “under God,” their brains freeze up. They are completely mindlocked while they say the word “indivisible,” and don’t recover their senses until “with liberty and justice for all.”
(Yeah, I know it’s weak, but it was better than my first idea — that the liberals mishear the pledge as “one nation, under God invisible,” and consider it their patriotic duty to make God as unseen as they can.)
