Skip to comments.School squelches freedom of speech for Inauguration Day
Posted on 01/21/2009 12:35:06 AM PST by Cindy
An Ohio school district may be violating the constitutional rights of its students.
Mason, Ohio, school officials sent an email to parents in advance of the presidential inauguration saying, "Inappropriate comments that may make other students, staff or families feel unwelcome or uncomfortable in school or on the bus will not be tolerated." The story by DaytonDailyNews.com featured examples of negative comments and actions made about the Obama administration after he was elected.
The school's superintendent Kevin Bright added that even in a competitive election process, "our nation's greatness is displayed when all sides come together for a united country." However, Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel believes there is more behind the correspondence.

So Inauguration Day became Indoctrination Day for the kids, eh?
“our nation’s greatness is displayed when all sides come together for a united country.”
not when it is as a result of force and repression.
All this talk of unity and coming together scares me. I can just imagine an Obamabot being outraged at that, but here’s why: if unity and coming together means that somebody has to censor themselves or restrict their freedom, then it isn’t worth it.
“All this talk of unity and coming together scares me.”
Thanks for your feedback LifeComesFirst.
It’s too late to be scared.
He’s the President now.
The time to be scared was when he was
running for President and he told us
exactly what he would do if he was
Well hey, I voted against him, I don’t need the lesson. :-P
Me too, but it had to be said.
So can I assume letters like this went home on a regular basis in response to Bush bashing, lest any conservative kids feel “unwelcome” on the bus. Crickets......
Wonder what their policy was on “divisive” remarks about President Bush? Did they exert pressure for “unity” on his behalf?
I wish I were at home so I could wear anti Obama shirts. We are only allowed to wear our uniforms here.
I feel so sad and depressed. I wish we could wake from this nightmare.
Demented imbeciles like Bright need to be taught a lesson.
Not only will decent real Americans not unite behind POTUS MUZZIE HUSSEIN, they will actively work to defeat socialism and socialists by any means necessary.
The MSM “journalists” are beating their chests about helping this president succeed.
He wants to confiscate my earnings and erode my freedoms.
Why would I help him succeed?
Resist. Resist. Resist.
The county schools my kids go to shut down for innaguration day and they have an “Obama Pajama” day today where all the kids get to wear pajamas in celebration of “the one”.
See if you can get them into a Christian or religious school, they have programs to help with tuition if that is an issue.
“I wish we could wake from this nightmare.”
Thank you for wearing your uniform and your service
for our country.
I appreciate it.
You think so? I remember the opposite when the KKKlintons came into office. A few months after he came into office, it was bad enough that the gate guards were ordered to inspect vehicles coming onto base (Robins AFB GA) to ensure that there were no anti-Clinton bumper stickers on the vehicles (vehicles with those kind of bumper stickers would be denied entry).
I also remember a batch of letters of reprimand and even a couple of Article 15s for disrespectful speech: Article 88 for officers and Article 92 for enlisted (there was an AF Reg that was violated in that case). No joke.
In other words, watch your mouth, watch your e-mail (particularly AKO/AFKO/NKO), etc. Hunker down and let somebody else set the precedent.
Signed, an old retired fart.
"Here's your change (sign)."
Imminent rueage is coming down the pike for Obamao voters...
Take your children out of these public indoctrination camps called public schools. They are an insult to everything America stands for.
Our soldiers know what's coming in the form of RIFTs and forced protection of Muslims world-wide and who the real enemy is.
How long before Congress slaps us with a tax increase?
I'm betting stuff is added to otherwise BS legislation that will not be known to the public before the end of Friday fer Zero to sign.
There's a delivery truck mow (5:15 AM) waiting at the gate of the Black House full of fresh lobster and Russian caviar.
I heard that Bush's staff pulled all the O's and zeros's off the 'puter keyboards last night.
I’ve got 19 years in now. I remember the Klinton years too. I use my yahoo account for my personnal stuff. Of course when I am off post and not in uniform I am free as a bird. I will take my freedom of speech out and exercise it well but carefully.
Used to live in this district.
White, nouveau-riche, McMansions, relatively safe, the usual. Typical fertile breeding ground for fuzzy-headed ‘educators’ trying out the latest fad on students/parents who think that such progressiveness will be a good thing.
Incidentally there is a member of that school board who is an unabashed conservative Christian. She wins her seat by large margins but the hate and vitriol directed towards her by many including the press is breathtaking.
She bravely opposed the silly idea of Muslim prayer rooms in the district’s schools and you can guess how that went over.
Screw bipartisanship, its payback time!
Another reason I’m very glad I homeschool. :)
Are you serious??
Remember when the Left was encouraging us all to rally behind George Bush for the good of the courntry?
“our nations greatness is displayed when all sides come together for a united country.”
Wasn’t it Hillary Clinton who said it is our obligation as Americans to voice our opposition.
I wonder if they accorded the same “protection” to George Bush.
Way at the bottom....

So Inauguration Day became Indoctrination Day for the kids, eh?
Every day is Marxist indoctrination day at our government school indoctrination camps.
“The county schools my kids go to shut down for innaguration day and they have an Obama Pajama day today where all the kids get to wear pajamas in celebration of the one.”
OMG, my daughter’s Catholic school had a pajama day today, too. I admit I’ve been sick and didn’t give it much thought so I sent her in her favorite princess pjs. Is this pajama day some kind of national Obama lovefest? I never, never would have done it if it is and I’d have known. The e-mail reminders didn’t say a thing, just that it was sponsored by the student council. I don’t know whether to be mad or sad.
When are the taxpayers going to revolt against this indoctrination? They too are subjugated!
Fundamentally, government schools are about **force**!
If the taxpayers refuse to pay for this indoctrination, they will soon have armed sheriffs at their door to put their homes and businesses up for state auction.
Unless a parent can ransom their child by paying extra in private school tuition or homeschooling, they and their child are under police and court threat to send their children to these indoctrination centers.
No school is culturally, politically, or religiously neutral. It is **impossible**! Government schools are a First Amendment and freedom of conscience nightmare, and parent, child, and taxpayer suffer under **armed** police domination and threat to support them.
I pinged metmom earlier for the Home-school list, but I forgot to say thank you for posting this. It is important that we keep track of all abuses like this - especially when it comes to the up-and-coming generations of youth in America. It’s no surprise that the young generation who is so vocal about their support for Obama is also the group most heavily parented by the “Baby Boomers” as well as those who bought into the whole “me first” generation of 80s parents which fostered an entitlement attitude.
If we are to be effective against this group of socialists/communists who are seeking to take over our country at ANY time in the future we must turn the tables on them, and take back the right to inform the children of this country, and offer them a good education — and not just the education that our Teachers’ Union and the Federal Government deem “proper” either. We must definitely strive to teach them the truth about Conservative Principles, as we can see they have already twisted them around so much in the minds of our youth.
We’ve somehow got to turn this all around, and use their methods against them because it’s what works. We can of course, tailor their methods a bit because we want to keep our souls! LOL
Just a reminder to all who may be reading this, and something I would suggest all parents have their children watch - particularly if they attend a public school - would be Yuri Brezmenov’s interview in which he details exactly how the Socialists/Communists are brainwashing generations of Americans, and it’s exactly why they don’t see the risks Obama and his comrades in the Democrat Party pose to our Freedom. I think that if kids know what they are up against they can think more critically about the information they are exposed to. Just because the Soviet Union no longer exists in name doesn’t mean that the Communists & Socialists & Fascists of old are not still lurking around. The only problem is that without a vocal communist enemy such as we had during the Cold War with Russia our children have not been taught adequately about that threat - and others such as Radical Islamic Terrorism, either!
I personally believe that these critical thinking skills which come when you realize what the propaganda artists, and the activist liberal teachers within the union and many public schools and universities — are trying to accomplish, are the difference between people understanding conservatism and freedom, and people being duped by Socialism and it’s propaganda efforts. This growth can still occur even if they are exposed to things such as this article shows, and even if they are “brainwashed” when they are young — although obviously removing the influence from these schools would be best. [Case in point, I voted for a Democrat (Clinton) the first election I voted in, however as I grew up and started providing for myself, and helping raise my children with my husband I began to understand the world around me better. That’s the only reason I think why I understand and support conservative issues and values now (that and a pretty good foundation laid by my parents as far as political viewpoints that I eventually stopped rebelling so much against to really examine...LOL).]
Sorry this is so long! I hope you and yours are doing well, Cindy. Thanks again for posting this. I think I’m finally feeling up to fighting back against some of these
things again after the disappointment of the election...
Anyway, here is that link I mentioned that people may wish to watch if they haven’t seen it already ~
Inteview with Yuri Alexandrovitch Bezmenov - http://www.dailymotion.com/relevance/search/Bezmenov/video/x32cxf_yuri-bezmenov
Take care & God bless the U.S., her patriots, her military, and her true allies around the world. :)
See if you can get them into a Christian or religious school,
Get them into a **conservative** Christian school. There are plenty of CINO schools out there teaching Liberation Theology, and worshiping Karl Marx instead of God.
F*** them. Ignore their directives.
All sides come together, what the He*l is he smoking? It's still a 50/50 split at best. Amen.
Thank you Liberty Rocks.
I’m fine and you stated your position quite well.
P.S. I agree.
absolutely right, ari.
