    Red Skelton's Pledge of Allegiance

    He was a comedian, clown, actor, artist, and a true Patriot. I grew up watching his movies and TV show. There are no more actors like this today.

    As a kid, we watched Red more than "Ed". He wasn't as funny as Red.

    His speech was because he was opposed to the adding "under God" to the Pledge.
    Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket???

    I don't think so.

    At the end of his speech, he stated that two states had been added to the Pledge and two words, "under God" had been added. He then states the it would be a pity if people thought that made it a prayer and eliminated it from our schools (which the Commucrats are trying to do now).

    Welcome to the official site of the Red Skelton Performing Arts Center located on the campus of Vincennes University in Red's hometown, Vincennes, Indiana. As you explore this site, you'll read about the legend of Red as an entertainer and multi-faceted artist, his humanitarianism, and his boyhood.
