In 1969 He Said *THIS* About God And America. 46 Years Later? My Jaw DROPPED!

2001

You may think that a lot has changed in our country since 1969 — and, of course, it has. However, the following video proves that as much as things change, they also stay the same.

If you grew up in the United States, I would bet big money that one of the very first things you ever learned at school was the Pledge of Allegiance. Written by Francis Bellamy in 1892 and adopted by U.S. Congress in 1945, the words “under God” were added less than 10 years later under President Eisenhower.

It was around that time that comedian Red Skelton had one of the most popular shows on television. Americans loved to tune in to his show and tune out from the problems of their everyday lives. The following clip is from The Red Skelton Hour back in 1969. If you were alive, you may even remember this classic moment when Red talks about our nation’s pledge.

With recent debate about taking “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance, there’s no denying that what he says couldn’t be more true to this day.
