Popular Thought

Part of the Global Perspectives on War and Peace Collection.

A powerful experimental short examining the danger of religious politics, over-zealous religiousness, and religious bigotry, finding a link between the tactics of Hitler’s Germany and Ronald Reagan’s America. Repeated quotes from Jerry Falwell refer to American Christians as an “army.” Footage of an Ohio parade featuring a “Let’s Bring America Back to God”  banner is shown under audio of a modified version of the American pledge of allegiance: “I pledge allegiance to the Christian flag and to the savior who saves all. One savior, crucified, risen, and coming again, with life and liberty for all who believe.”
