School Kids Sing About The Greatness Of Obama….No Indoctrination There

By 33 Comments 1,252 views

That video and material that was shown to schoolkids throughout the nation was just an innocent attempt to get the kids motivated right? Nevermind the fact that the first instructions sent out had the kids write out what they could do to help Obama out….

That was changed and everything was hunky-dory again. But the worries that the cult of personality would seep into the kids mind have proven well founded:

From Hot Air:

…one of the lines about The One here, heard near the beginning from the kid who’s singing solo, is an adaptation from a hymn about how much Jesus loves the little children.

Kinda reminds ya of this kind of thing eh?

Nothing creepy there…..nothing at all.

Or how about this from Smart Girl Politics in which the author writes about a test given to a child from the site: (h/t Michelle Malkin)

Her daughter, a senior in high school, had come home upset because, although the speech was not shown in her school, her anatomy teacher had made the class watch the President’s health care speech. After the video was shown, the students were given a short quiz about the speech. The questions asked gave the assumption that the answers provided in the President’s speech were fact and not opinion. The students were given no opportunity to discuss opposing views or have a debate on the topic. In fact, when one student stated that the President had lied, the student was told that kind of talk was unnecessary. Students in the class with opposing views were forced to remain silent or whisper amongst themselves.

The daughter of our member was so upset about what had occured that she refused to finish the quiz and brought it home to her mother for review. A copy of the quiz is provided below.

Some of these students were educated on the health care debate going on in the country, while others simply took the information as fact and filled out their quiz. For those students, President Obama’s speech was their education. Is that not considered indoctrination?

    How sick is this guy…..sick enough to tell everybody America was born on his watch and he is the King. And worst yet he believes the King thing.

    I finally met a match for president O’Dumbo. While hanging around a maintenance shop one guy had done everything and knew everthing. The type of guy who tries to outdo everyone and will lie at the drop of a hat. O’Dumbo has traveled around the world, on our dime, and whined about everything you can come up with but never offered a workable solution to anything. Guess he has to go home and ask M.O. what to do after they finish the $25,000+ Kale and Tomato supper.
    To me he’s just a ‘typical’ half white/half Arab (who claims to be black to enjoy the government ripoffs) druggie bragging of his conquest. This is not racist, just a reversal of O’Dumbo’s typical white woman statement. Has anyone ever saw a bigger liar than O’Dumbo? Does one even exist?

    He ought to be discouraging this type of worship. He ought to have a generational outlook, ummm, dare I call it hope, for the future of our country and from that encourage young people to love their country, to be patriotic. Not to worship him!

    OMG… don’t know what to say but OMG! That’ questionaire is an educational embarrassment. Anyone get the name of the teacher and school who constructed that bit of propaganda?

    Singing an ode to Opie to the tune of “Glory, Glory Halleujah — His Truth Goes Marching On”? What truth? The only truth about him is that he is a pathological liar. As for that anatomy teacher, he/she has been sniffing too much formaldehyde.

    I’m a home schooling parent – our kids joined up with Classical Conversations for the past few years.

    We’ve been blessed to learn material that I never learned through my curriculum in public school. The ‘model’ is the key. We aim to teach them with the Trivium method (grammar, dialectic, rhetoric). This year it’s a lot of memory work. My 4-year-old gleefully sings to me the “Five Kingdoms of Living things,” the “Classifications of Living Things,” the “Latin Noun Endings — nominative – subject, genitive – possessive, dative-indirect object, etc,” and we learn a timeline of 140 events from ancient history ’til now, history sentences, geography galore, English grammar, and presentation skills.

    In our weekly classes, we are all so careful never to mention politics in front of other people’s children. It’s a sacred realm of the parent.

    Imagine going to “school” with your Mom or Dad — it’s great to see relationships blossom among the children and their parents — I’ve never seen a fight or unkind behavior among the children. It’s a privilege to do this, but it’s also a large financial and time sacrifice on the part of the teaching parent and the whole family. (One parent isn’t earning a living doing something else while their kids get a “free” public education).

    I am just absolutely shocked at the children’s video and the ridiculous ‘quiz’ given to these high school students. Each one of the questions would require more than a snap answer. It’s a disgrace to their intelligence. Senior high students are in the rhetorical stage of learning, and *should* be encouraged to argue points. They should also be allowed time to study the material behind their argument. It shows total disrespect for them to require them to parrot a politician’s speech.

    I wanna slap the s**t out of every one of those kids parents. THEY are the ones who ENABLE the retards running these indoc-centers. The soul-less ghouls who run schools are inherently WEAK of mind body, and spirit, and back-down so fast it makes one giggle in their faces, when you go face-to-face with them.

    In fact it’s the most fun you can have with your clothes on, and after one or two times, an entire 1000-student high-school can be brought back to reality, with only minor single-teacher “correcting” needed….

    I thought very much about homeschooling, but I figured I want the kids to not only be able to compare and contrast, but to empower them to take action, and WIN against the teachers, and against the brainwashed students. My Kayla has turned into a one-girl destroyer of liberalism, and has a following that Shall Not Be Messed With, of parents and students alike.

    Branham High School in San Jose has been “corrected”, but there is ONE teacher left in First Daughters’ AP-History class that has yet to feel the switch of her. In fact, that whipping will occur this Friday, when she turns in a certain paper on why the Puritans left England, (per the book, and the synopsis) yet the “teacher” wants it to be about how “Americans today struggle with religion.” Maybe I’ll post it here, just so you can see what we have wrought.

    MUhhahahahahah!

    WE FEAR THEM NOT!!!!

    According to the YouTube page, the video was taken at Young Elementary School in Burlington, NJ. If that was a public schoolteacher’s doing, she should be sternly and publicly reprimanded; I don’t care which side you support, that stuff doesn’t belong in the public schools.

    The “quiz” story is a little different, simply because there is no verifiable information whatsoever. A blogger (albeit a well-known blogger) says that one of her correspondents said this happened and provided a scan of the quiz/study guide/whatever. If this happened in a public school, the teacher should be sternly and publicly reprimanded. However, I would REALLY like to see some verification on this one.

    I’m glad that my kids are too old for this, but I fear for my grandchildren when King Kong gets the bit in his teeth – to mix metaphors…

    Disgraceful!

    Tell me about it, FedUp. I’ve said, for decades, that the public schools must be a partisan-free zone. I have two teachers in our local school district upon whom I’m keeping an eye (one on the left, one on the right), because the only thing that will maintain a partisan-free environment is parental involvement.

    To me, this is just like the Texas school that made a special “field trip” to a McCain rally last fall, or the North Carolina teacher who browbeat a student for supporting (when asked by the teacher) McCain. None of that garbage belongs in our schools.

    This is indeed disgraceful and outrageous – especially in an era where the schools are downplaying or glossing over the likes fo Gerorge Washington. hey if we kill religion and then kill the memory of how special America truly is and what the Founders sacrificed and achieved – well then, we indoctrinate our kids that America is just like every other nation in the world thereby fulfilling the left’s moral equivalency view…..

    I went to high school in Burlington, NJ – and the fact that the above vid was shot there is astonishing to me, but then again, I happen to currently live in a town somewhat nearby and my granddaughter was punished for breaking a school rule the other day. She lost her recess privileges for a day. Oh – you want to know what she did? Oh, okay, well, um, she uh, well she picked up a stick and ran with it. No. No. That’s it. No really, she picked up a stick on the playground – yep, principal called our house, talked to my wife – wife kept waiting for the other shoe to drop – except there wasn’t any. Granddaughter got on the call and said it was a neat looking stick; so she picked it up. Well, damage done, but by the time I got home, I explained to my granddaughter (as my wife did earlier) that she did absolutely nothing wrong. The school has a stupid rule (yep, I said to her that it was stupid) but now we know. Why did I do nothing more? Because we have had a few past issues of similar stupidity by the school, and we can’t make the kids lives miserable over our fights with the school – some things are better left by the wayside – and besides, I am sure that I will need the ammo – so to speak – for a future, much more stupid incident – which I am sure will happen with either of my grandchildren, and we will be much more effective if not labeled chronic complainers. We’ll pick the right fights, hopefully.

    The best thing we conservatives can do is properly educate our kids – despite the schools – so that is what we are trying to do. The kids know to alert us to political crap like obama worship.

    Barack Obama is The Consummate LIAR:

    Author confirms Bill Ayers helped Obama write ‘Dreams’
    New release on president’s marriage verifies work of WND’s Jack Cashill pointing to ex-terrorist’s role

    Confirming the literary detective work of WND columnist Jack Cashill prior to the 2008 election, author Christopher Andersen says in a newly released book that former domestic terrorist William Ayers helped Barack Obama write the president’s highly acclaimed memoir “Dreams from My Father.” — from article.

    Andersen writes:

    In the end, Ayers’s contribution to Barack’s “Dreams from My Father” would be significant – so much so that the book’s language, oddly specific references, literary devices, and themes would bear a jarring similarity to Ayers’s own writing. — from the article.

    “To admit that Obama needed a collaborator would have undercut his campaign for president,” Cashill says, “and to reveal the name of that collaborator would have ended it.” — from the article.

    Nobody has any business telling children that Obama is any kind of a role model. Obama is an incessant LIAR and he do and say anything to save his hide. Obama is of such low caliber in every and any redeeming quality that we should expect Obama to be thrown out of office.

    Moose, pull your antler from your posterior, guy. The lyrics belie your “Bush did it first” claim:

    Our country’s stood beside us
    People have sent us aid.
    Katrina could not stop us, our hopes will never fade.
    Congress, Bush and FEMA
    People across our land
    Together have come to rebuild us and we join them hand-in-hand!

    Looks to me like they sang praises to the entire nation, Congress, the FEMA officials and Bush…. not to the singular chosen one.

    As far as emergency response to disasters and attacks, the locals always are on the first line of defense. You might want to address the idiots who were the Governor and the Mayor (still is) who didn’t bother to evacuate the public either on time, nor using available vehicles at their disposal. Arrogance and denial at the local level is the most responsible for Katrina.

    Mooseburger, you’ve been drinking too much Libbie Bong-Water. The people here are well informed, not ill-informed like you and your lefty wing-nut friends from another planet.

    Hang, Word da man… I’m still waiting for Bullwinkle to note the difference between a teacher propagating propaganda in a public school with a curriculum consisting of musical odes to “da won”, and kids singing praise to the entire nation while guests of the White House at the annual rite of spring, the Easter Egg Roll.

    But… don’t want to load Bullwinkle down with too much at one time, ya know. LOL
