How many thousands watched Rory McIlroy win the U.S. Open Championship on Sunday? I’d venture a guess it was a record audience. McIlroy at age 22, led the field from day one till the last putt on Sunday (finishing 16 under par!) breaking something like 12 records including a few by a notably missing Mr. Woods.
So apparently NBC decided this was a golden opportunity to indoctrinate this huge viewing audience with their political slant, their display of attitude down-playing American exceptionalism just like our President has done so often over the last 3 years, by editing our Pledge of Allegiance!
What a pitiful apology. “regrettably a portion was edited out.” A portion???
Here is the Pledge in its entirety:
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
The words underlined in red were edited out by NBC-twice. More proof that certain factions want to divide us and want God out of our lives. This was not a mistake, it was intentional. How do you even begin to apologize for this? The U.S. Championship -one of golf’s biggies, played in our nation’s capital with people from all over the world attending and watching on TV and as the Pledge is given by school children in the presence of our US Military forces, they pull this crap.
I was stunned and I am ashamed to see what AMERICA has come to.
Voicing your disappointment to NBC and various organizations affiliated with the US Open will bring pressure on NBC.

If you don’t think your voice counts you are dead wrong. Why do you think Tiger Woods lost so many endorsements after he was outed?
