Why Don't Their Heads Explode?

When the Bachmannistas get together to rally against the government, to call as she does for Jeffersonian Revolution, to call the President evil and the Senate and House Leadership Socialists, how then do they pledge allegiance to that government with a straight face?

Are their civics so weak that the Pledge means nothing to them?
I pledge allegiance
(1) : the fidelity owed by a subject or citizen to a sovereign or government
to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic
1 a (1) : a government having a chief of state who is not a monarch and who in modern times is usually a president
for which it stands
— stand for 1 : to be a symbol for
one nation, under God, indivisible
not divisible
with Liberty
d : the positive enjoyment of various social, political, or economic rights and privileges
and Justice
b (1) : the principle or ideal of just dealing or right action (2) : conformity to this principle or ideal
for All.
2 : every member or individual component of

There is no separate Pledge for conservatives. We all live under and fight for the same flag, the same ideals, the same country. Don't march on Washington to deny Liberty and Justice for any or some and then claim you have a higher platform from which to preach. The Pledge doesn't offer special privileges to the loudest.
