Two DNC Delegates Drop ‘Under God’ From Pledge of Allegiance During Online Meetings

At least two meetings at this week’s Democratic National Convention began with a shameful display of politics gone wrong.

Sending a message just to send a message is a useless waste of political attention but that didn’t stop two Dem delegates from dropping the phrase “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance/

Two videos posted online that you can see below show it all clearly.


“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. And to the republic for which it stands. One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,” delegate A.J. Durrani said at the start of the DNC’s of “Muslim Delegates and Allies Assembly.”

In the LGBT Caucus the woman purposely leaves out the words, “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. You can see how long she pauses so this is not a mistake.

From The Washington Examiner:

The phrase was not part of the Pledge when Congress first officially codified it in 1942 (it dates back in various forms to 1906). It was added in 1954 under a bill signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

“From this day forward, the millions of our school children will daily proclaim in every city and town, every village and rural school house, the dedication of our nation and our people to the Almighty.

In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America’s heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country’s most powerful resource, in peace or in war,” Eisenhower wrote.
