But you see, these are schools who are doing something that has been done for decades..like the song about Reagan saving the day for Santa Claus. There are probably music teachers back in the day...that made up simple songs to teach kids music..and did it about Presidents, or whatever. It’s an activity
You are just putting a more sinister slant on it through your Fascism glasses..because you are more educated as to what is going on...and are worried about the Hitler Youth Brigade.
Would you really have had a problem if Laura bush or President Bush was going to do something like the Sept 8th school address???
Liberals would have probably screamed about it...but would you have had a problem???
The bottom line for me is that I can’t get upset over this song if it was done for a visit IN CONCEPT. I couldn’t hear all of the lyrics. For example, if they said Obama was the Messiah or Obama was God I would have a problem.
If it wasn’t for a visit..then you have to watch that slippery slope. I doubt Obama told them to do that song....but we could get to that point.
If my kid was in that school and came home with that song...I am not sure what I would do. Those are young kids.
Turnabout is fair play:
If obama is going to try and steal our children’s hearts and minds, then as parents, it is our duty to tell them the ugly truth about obama:
Tell them he thinks it’s ok to kill babies. Tell them he is friends with people who cut off the heads of people who have different religious ideas. Tell them he will put Mommy and Daddy in jail for being mean to the environment.
If your realationship with your children is weaker than than their relationship with their teacher/propogandist, you have more than the obamachrist to worry about.
I think using a variety of methods to teach children facts are necessary. I have no problem with music, poems, lyrics being used as tools to teach facts such as history. I did have a problem when most schools went PC and took halloween, christmas etc out. Putting a president in a themed story, doesn’t bother me as much.
You are right when you mentioned the glasses I am wearing. I too couldn’t hear all the words. I will listen again on better speakers to try to get a better idea. I know there have been stories of teachers spewing their bias in the classroom...so I will give you this one. (Now I have to figure out the words)
