From Lorie Byrd:

Not like “the Chin” didn’t get a Rush free market 101 lesson earlier this year:

Lorie writes in her post:

Tonight driving my nine-year-old daughter to a school event, we passed a new community center that has not opened yet. We started talking about whether or not it might have a pool, or a gym or what else might be hidden behind the cool modern glass facade. My daughter asked if it would cost a lot to go to it. I told her since it is a community center (it is adjacent to a city park) that it would most likely be free, like the park is.

My daughter told me it was not free — that if the city built it then we all paid for it with our tax money. I asked her how she knew that and she said last year her third grade teacher explained to the class that their families all paid her through their taxes and that when the teacher paid her taxes she was even paying part of her own salary.

Too bad the school officials at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in New Jersey seemed to give a big “EFF-U” to parents who questioned how their tax money was being used (After watching the video, who says liberals don’t got no religion?)- Kevin McCullough:

Several personal phone calls to the school’s administrative office this morning have produced the following results.

1. The school refuses to acknowledge that the events on the tape even occurred.
2. They refuse to admit whether or not information concerning the activity, and the right of a family or child to opt out of it, was made available.
3. They refuse to admit whether or not the children were offered other options, as opposed to being forced to memorize the words, “Hello, Mr. President, we honor you today! For all your great accomplishments we all do say “hooray!” Hooray, Mr. President, you’re number one!
4. But the spokesperson I talked with at B. Bernice Elementary school did say the school was aware of, and considering taking actions against, the persons “who illegally taped and distributed a video recording of a private class activity.”

Message to the genius public educators at B.Bernice Elementary school in Burlington Township, New Jersey: devise a better public relations strategy.

You might also be mindful of the fact that as a public school, your accountability is to the people of your district.

Obviously no conspiracy is at work here. The source of the video recording is easy to narrow down — this isn’t an ACORN style sting operation. This was likely made by a parent, someone either proud or concerned, who taped the children singing. They were most likely in plain sight of the teacher and the children in attendance. This is their right as a tax-paying parent.

But to the geniuses at B. Bernice elementary school, I want to further add that you might also be mindful that parents do have a say in what you do or do not expose their children to in your attempt to “educate” them. In fact it might be more helpful for everyone if you would stick to teaching 4-6 year olds that “2+2=4,” that “A-n-d is “and’,” and that “yellow and blue make green.”

There is a reason we do not allow kindergarteners in this nation to cast votes in elections. Political philosopohy, worldview, and worship of dieties are something they have not yet quite gotten a handle on.

Raising hands of praise to President Obama’s “accomplishments” is not just inappropriate it’s entirely premature.

Those at the B.Bernice Elementary School in Burlington Township, New Jersey, may be unable to overcome their sycophantic Obama obsessions, but the children of America should not be required to chant his name, raise their hands, and repeat dogma that may not be exactly based in reality.

But what do I know? After all, I’m just a tax-paying parent.

Apparently, Charisse Carney-Nunes, an Obama supporter, posted the video (and has since removed the link in wake of the firestorm). Michelle Malkin has some details:

Via ModernConservative, Carney-Nunes is senior vice president of The Jamestown Project, “the award-winning author of the children’s books, I Am Barack Obama (2009),” and according to her biography, “a graduate of Harvard Law School, where she was a schoolmate of President Obama.” I have e-mailed Carney-Nunes for comment as well.

The Obama school song video that she taped shows her book featured on an easel next to the children hailing Dear Leader. She promotes her book as a tool that “allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, Who will change the world? Ultimately, he realizes that he will.”

She has spread this creepy cult message to schoolchildren across the country.

Scared Monkeys:

A message from the school, and yes this was a sanctioned public school activity:

Dear Burlington Township Families:

Today we became aware of a video that was placed on the internet which has been reported in the media. The video is of a class of students singing a song about President Obama. The activity took place during Black History Month in 2009, which is recognized each February to honor the contributions of African Americans to our country. Our curriculum studies, honors and recognizes those who serve our country. The recording and distribution of the class activity were unauthorized.

If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me or Dr. King, Principal of B. Bernice Young School, directly.

Dr. Christopher M. Manno,
Superintendent of Schools

And they say conservatives are out of touch…
