…With Liberty’s Tears for All

I have a new stand-alone DocuCommentary up on my Youtube channel now. (It is not part of the Strange Brew series…that series will be continued soon.)
I showed this video yesterday at a discussion group I  attend every week.  It was VERY enthusiastically received, and led to a lively hour-long discussion.
If Meet MythAmerica viewers should happen to want to share it with their friends, I suggest cutting and pasting the description below, and the link, into an email or social media post of your own to pass on.

With Liberty’s Tears for All: A closer look at the history of the Pledge of Allegiance. 

Many Americans embroiled in the recent debate over standing for the National Anthem to honor the US flag have no idea that a related, but even more acrimonious, debate raged in the United States 75 years ago. Questions regarding “flag respect” and the importance of preserving civic rituals of patriotism in our culture are nothing new. And the answers that were promoted by some people in that earlier era are extremely relevant to the debate today.

This DocuCommentary by Pam Dewey explores the background leading to a dark time in our American narrative.
