Tuesday, September 29, 2009 Obama Worship comes to Howard County
Well, it looks like the worship of his holiness Barack Obama has infected Longfellow Elementary in Howard County. See this email below, and get ready to be disgusted. Because no President, Republican or Democrat, should be glorified like this.

Hi everyone, below is the email that our sons Assistant Principal sent us to let us know the wording of the Obama song that our son told us his class was instructed to sing last week the teacher is part of the first grade team of teachers and is really nice, but this is not what we want our son doing at school or anywhere!

Hello Mr. (REMOVED),
The words to the song are below.
President Obama--He says
Yes we can!
President Obama--We say
Yes we can!
President Obama--I say
Yes I can!
President Obama--He says
Yes we can!
Barack Obama--Oh yes he rates,
The first Black President in the United States!
He's smart and he's--so so good!
He'll lead this country as he should!
He wants us all to work together,
To make this country even better!
Prez' Obama says--"Yes We Can!"
Make the US better--hand in hand!
this school needs some patriots to picket the indoctrination song.
My daughter is both a public school and a Catholic school music teacher, grades K-12, in VA. I know that she is heavily pressured to include “diversity” in the songs she teachers. I’ll ask her about this and where these directives come from. I know that they have all kinds of associations and workshops. Somebody said on this forum that the author of that children’s book on Obama (who went to Harvard with him) also wrote one of the songs on the original tapes that surfaced.
I can tell you this: most music teachers do not have the time to compose stuff like this. These songs are being distributed through some network, and the teachers grab them as something “different”.
then the school needs a team of lawyers to descend upon them
I see this Obama worship cultism has reached my neck of the woods. I'm glad my kids are in private school. It can be difficult financially but at least they won't bowing down to the Dagon of Leftist America -- Barack Hussein Obama.
I’ll just add that I remember singing songs for a cause in school — in those days it was “War Bonds for our Soldiers”. Since I was only in 1st grade it came home like “Werbens for our soldiers” and my mother had to contact the teacher to find out what I was singing.
We learned enough songs for a whole program that we presented to the school and the parents after V-J Day. In fact, I thought that the War was finally over because our class was about to move to a new teacher and, it was our last chance to sing our songs because the new teacher wouldn’t know them!
However, with all that patriotic fever going on, we did not learn one song praising FDR or Harry Truman!
I asked her who provided the kid with the question on Afghans having free national health care. Was it a teacher or member of the Obama advance team. She wouldn't answer.
Not to worry, Drudge and ELRUSHBO, were emailed and informed.
As someone who lives less than a mile from this school, this is why my son will attend private school.
OK - we should jam the phones.
This is from The Onion, right? They can’t be so dense as to think they can get away with this after that whole uproar a few weeks ago..
You need a major barf alert warning on that one...
Not the onion.
Sorry, was busy doing several things at once.
This is reality - not the Onion. Unfortunately. Michelle Malkin has it on her site now.
Call the school information office, Patti Caplan 1-410 313 6680 and ask her the name of the teacher who wrote the song with her class as an assignment, last year. Ask her about the purpose and how she thinks that this song meets that goal.
Let her know that this kind of indoctrination and hero worship is inappropriate in a public school.
They sent it AFTER it was sung?
A Letter From a Child/Thomas Sowell
Ask Patti Caplan, the school’s information officer, how she would feel if her child came home singing songs of praise to President Bush for keeping us safe from terrorism for eight years since the 9/11 attacks.
I left a message informing her I would be sending an email. The email asked if there is any truth to this “Internet rumor.”
I do not expect a response before nightfall
