Obama indoctrination in the schools
Washington Examiner ^ | 1/22/09 | Meghan Cox Gurdon

Posted on 01/22/2009 6:09:49 AM PST by lifeisacarnival

“I’m so excited,” the teacher bubbled, “I’ve just composed a song for the children!” The purpose of the song, the teacher explained, was to celebrate the results of a school wide mock election in which – surprise! -- Barack Obama had come out victorious.

It’s everywhere. I have to gag when we pick up our 6-year old granddaughter from school, enthusiastically spouting “facts” about Obama.

She did mention McCain the other day, when she asked if we liked him (a tough question to answer...) because “He was the one who got us in the war...”

We do our best to correct this stuff, but it’s hard going against something she’s hearing every day at school.

I always find that look of shock interesting, when they realize that you aren’t just giddy with thrills up your leg over Obama being President. It’s like they are so insulated by the media and surrounded by an uproar of propoganda that they can’t comprehend there are people out there who aren’t happy Obama got elected.

Not all are that crazy, but I’ve more than I’d care too over the past couple of months.

Ugh. I really hope we’re ready to home school in 4-5 years if this kind of BS spreads to our school system.

My 7 year old told me her friend said that McCain wanted to send everybody in Texas to Mexico forever and wanted them to starve to death.

Sounds like someone mixed up Mommy and Daddy’s twisted logic about McCain, but that’s how it came back down to me.

I’m not trying to play parent counsel here, but IMO you shouldn’t put up with this indoctrination crap. Have a firm talk with the school and/or withdraw your kid from this reeducation camp. Are there no alternatives?

Unfortunately my 10 year was an attempted brainwash victim on Tuesday.

When I picked him up at daycare he was all excited. Obama is President! Our first black president. He was POOR and he got elected to be President”
I interrupted him in front of the (black) daycare staff.

I said: Obama is black but he was never poor, His mother was a middle class college student. His grandparents sent him to a VERY expensive private school, then he went to college and to Harvard Law School. Abraham Lincoln was POOR. Many of our Presidents have been POOR. But Obama has never been POOR.

Then, since they were listening, I said:

Our Secretary of State Condi Rice was POOR. Our first black Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was POOR. Colin Powell and all of our first Black military leaders were POOR. Let's go home and read about Clarence Thomas..”

LOL! The looks on their faces!

I live in rural WV, where many life long Dims still exist. Tho McPain won the state, there were lots of moonbats made happy.
One of my neighbors had an inaugural party, complete with burning GWB in effigy. When I said something to him, I could have been killed dead, just with the look I received. These folks luv their Zero!!!
Of course, it’s really about ABB... (anybody but Bush!)

I know the entire school agenda all to well. We were trapped in the middle of the “That’s a family” video debacle in Evesham, NJ. The schools do not care about test scores or anything...all they care about is indoctrinating children on radical left beliefs. I for one have had enough...I ain’t complaining anymore...get involved, your children are worth it!

The future of our children is at stake...I will do whatever I have to in order to bring them up correctly and protect all children from those instilling false ideals.

I think the Mayan calendar got it wrong about the world ending in 2012. With so many things like this going on, we won’t last that long.

My 1st grader had a homework assignment this week to choose someone who she felt was strong (a la MLK Jr.) Her first response was ... guess who? I said, what’s he done to show us he’s strong? Silence. She decided on Jesus. Great choice; too bad it didn’t occur to her first.

I told her, and our kindergartener, that they will hear a lot about “Mr. Obama” at school, and that everything they hear will make him sound great. I told them to remember that millions of people, including our family, disagree with that and think he should never have been president.

Our little girl was irritated when she came home.

They were doing Obama stuff all day.

My junior high son fared well though.

His class was actually given an opportunity to opt out of watching the inaugural programming.

Of course, they will also be bombarded with the yearly MLK drill, which drags on longer & longer each year.

Yawn.

This is exactly why if I ever have kids, they’re going to private school.

My 11 year old daughter (P.) came home from her new public elementary school in Naples Florida on Tuesday. She described how the teachers were celebrating the Obama inauguration by watching the event on TV with a party and snacks and with all the teachers wearing paper hats and blowing horns.

P. asked the teachers if they did this for every inauguration; “Did they have a party when President Bush was elected?” She said the teachers looked uncomfortable at the question and explained to the class that; “Every president gets an inauguration and it is always televised”.

“No,” My daughter clarified, “Did you have a party like this, here at school when President Bush was elected?” None of the teachers answered her question. P was asked to sit down and be quiet so that the others could watch the inauguration.

Wow, now, more than ever, I am glad we have homeschooled all of our kids. Graduated 4 so far and one more to go. It brings me a sense of relief to see my kids know basic truths and so little propaganda. The stories I hear about public school Obamanization make me sick.

"I’m so excited,” the teacher bubbled, “I’ve just composed a song for the children!”

Ugh.

I do not care what she might have said next. That sentence right there sums up so much of my antipathy toward government schools. They're taxpayer-funded daycares. The children go and learn cheerful songs from bubbly teachers, glue macaroni noodles to cardboard letters, watch movies about penguins and global warming. Even if they were were not liberal hellholes, I can't imagine anything less enjoyable as a young kid.

My mother taught me to read and to do math, for about an hour a day in kindergarten through second grade, and the rest of the time? She read aloud Narnia and the "Little House" books. My sisters and I played elaborate make-believe games for hours at a time. No tv - but all the books I could want.

How have we accepted the lie that it's better for young children to be in a classroom all day? To go from structured activity to structured activity, ruled by a teacher's lesson plans and not their actual interests or desires?

My 7 year old’s class did watch the inauguration. Now I have no problem with that in itself. Its a good Civic Lesson, and I don't think we missed any inaugurations when I was in elementary school in the 60’s and early 70’s. But if I learn that they are being indoctrinated to worship “The One” I will put my foot down big time.
My son likes Palin, and told me as late as yesterday, that he wants her to be the next President. So I guess no damage was done from watching Obama take the oath. I got a smart kid there.

I do know last year in kindergarten he was being indoctrinated by someone about not eating meat. After school he asked me, “Dad, if I was a chicken would you eat me?” I asked him where did he hear that question and he said at school. Later that evening, as he was happily gnawing on a BBQ Rib, I turned the question back on him. “If I was a pig, would you eat me?” He looked up and grinned, BBQ sauce spread from ear to ear, and said, “Yep”.

Why isn’t there a greater outcry for a separation of school and state? Indoctrinating the Nation’s youth in the manner that the public education system does comes closer to establishing a religion (think global warming) than does any organized traditional religious movement. If you want to get a liberal angry show them film clips of German school children circa 1930’s singing Hitler’s praises.
