Upcoming Obama speech to students angers some parents

Posted on 09/03/2009 6:23:55 AM PDT by floridaguy81

Some parents are concerned about a speech President Barack Obama plans to make to students across the country on Tuesday.

The White House says the speech is mainly intended to be motivational, telling children about the benefits of education and inspiring them to be good students.

The key words being "mainly intended"...

Which means the rest of it is intended to indoctrinate the "yoots" into mind-numbed "Yes, We Can" Obamabots...

Keep your children home and tell them the truth about the Fascist in Chief...

Obama isn’t the superhero he thinks he is. These constant appearances will not net him anything.

Can you imagine the turmoil if Pres. Bush had done the same thing?

Pushing the NEA to recruit artists to create Bush-policy art?

Staffing his advisors with self-proclaimed communists?

Shutting down Coal fired electrical generation plants, with nothing on-line to replace them?

ect, ect, ect.

The problem is, we can’t trust Obama to stick to a purely motivational speech. Somehow, I expect him to turn it into a way to sell his agenda to the little ones, and then explain it away as something that “We know everyone can agree on”. If I had a kid that age, I would not want to take the chance.

The other component is the teachers, who have proven in many cases the damage they can do in the name of The Obama. Even if TOTUS does bestow upon him a purely objective, harmless speech, the teachers have an opportunity to spin whatever they want from it, and whatever the union tells them to spin.

It’s sad that we can’t trust our president or our teachers to do the right thing.

Good Students?

Well if Obama wants children to be good students LET'S SEE HIS TRANSCRIPTS!

HEY OBAMA, before you lecture our kids on the benefits of being a "good student", How's about you release your elementary, high school, college and law school transcripts, so we can see how it benefited YOU!

They discovered that the controversy was so great that they are retooling the words ... like with HealthCare, they test words among the US Citizens to determine which ones work and which ones don’t; they did this for Zero’s campaign. So, you can expect Zero next week to say the same thing he has been about healthcare but with different catch phrases.

He wants to indoctrinate our youth, so expect that he will say what he intended, but with a tweaking of his words.

Zero’s administration is doing damage control YET AGAIN. The excuse in the Washington Times article: “But the revisions did not appear in time to head off the rapid-fire reaction that spread all day on conservative-oriented talk radio and Web sites.”

I do not trust this administration as far as I can spit.

I never thought I would ever say this, but I am glad our school district is on Strike. Hope the strike last another week, so my 7-year old does not have to get pulled from school.

I don’t think most of us would have a problem with a President addressing the nations school children at the beginning of the year, and talk about how great this Nation is, and how much better it can be if they study hard, challenge them selves in school, at home, in their place of worship, and in the community. And most important stay in school. A Bill Cosby type of message.

But that is not what Obama had in mind. He is taking this address to our children straight from Sauk Alinsky’s book. Get the children on our side, divide them from their parents conservatism early, and most important show these cute little kids on the news . The Aaawwwww factor is a very powerful tool.

Obama has already stated he is ok with being a one term president. I wonder if he is setting himself up for some kind of long-term career in education so he can corrupt an entire generation with his socialist/marxist agenda.

I found it a little offensive at first, until I heard that they would be asked to pledge allegiance to the zero, at which point I went ballistic!

Neither myself nor my children will ever pledge allegiance to that satanic jerk off. And we aren't going to wear any freaking number either, so don't even bother.

"My daughter will be sick that day.

I don't have a child of school age anymore (they grow up and faster than you think), but I respect your position on this.

I would communicate with her the way that a good parent warns their child about drugs, drinking and driving, associating with bad crowds, etc.

This could be a watershed event in forming the opinions of young people against the type of propaganda being attempted here.

Don't just protect your daughter, encourage the school and school board to record and make it available for home viewing via the district web page.
I sent a lengthy email to board, principals etc asking them to reconsider.
Consider something along the lines of below to the school board etc:
1. Does the federal government exercise control over the local public elementary and other schools? That is, can the President of the United States dictate the timing and subject matter of presentations to OUR school students? Does the School Board have a choice concerning whether to broadcast President Obama’s speech?

2. If the school board has a choice, when will the school board meet to decide its course of action? If there is no special or regular meeting to make the decision, when and how will that decision be made?

3. Do school principals have a choice concerning whether to broadcast President Obama’s speech to all of its students? Do teachers have a choice concerning whether or when to broadcast the speech? Will all teachers be required to broadcast the speech and conduct the federal government’s recommended pre-speech activities and follow up discussions as an addition to the regular school day curriculum?

4. If the decision is made to broadcast the President’s speech in the classroom, will parents be offered a choice to exempt their children from this broadcast and its attendant activities without a marked absence or other penalty?

In summary I am very concerned after reviewing the federal lesson plans sent out by the Dept of Education that the format doesn't promote healthy debate. It assumes the student will agree with the speaker.

My suggestion is for my local School District to broadcast a message to all parents along the lines of: "In order to not interrupt scheduled instructional learning and lessons, the District will not be participating in President Obama’s live broadcast on Sept. 8. However, the speech will be recorded and archived, a link will be provided on the District Web site to allow students and their families to access the speech at home."

The NEA would have been in open revolution had GW Bush asked to do this.

Remember at all the “sneering” and “yipping” from the Liberals when he continued to read to kids in school on 9/11 and didn’t panic and bolt to the door?

What many fail to realize, is that they are not targeting OUR kids. That is to say, they are not targeting the kids whose parents are involved in their lives. No, they are targeting those kids who have no fathers or home life to speak of (80% of America’s children?)

This used to be the “inner city” kids, but now, that lifestyle is all to common everywhere.

They are tossing out a large net (a very large net), to see what fish they can catch.

I’ve already heard the lefts talking points “well, you have nothing to worry about... do you think Obama is going to change your kid into a radical in one speach?” Of course the answer is no, the idea is not to change OUR kids, the idea is to impregnate an idea, a thought, a broad paintstroke to show how Obama is a hero, and the new JFK to these impressionable minds who have no other father figures and their only known heroes play sports or compose Rap Music.

This is “community organizing”.

While you may think your kid is safe because he’s staying home, millions of other mushy headed children will NOT be safe, and that is the greatest danger, and that is what we should all be riled up about.

Especially when you start seeing the reading material that will be assigned by teachers, it makes my blood boil.

My kids WILL be going to school that day, we’ve already discussed it, and they will be there to ridicule Obozo and his policies. I think this is a more effective way to fight back, at least for us.

Check out these Amazon reviews for one of the books students were apparently asked to read in order to prepare for the Dear Leader's upcoming speech. These are the first 4 reviews...

Barack by Jonah Winter (Hardcover - October 1, 2008)
$17.99 $12.23

8 of 25 people found the following review helpful:

1.0 out of 5 stars MISLEADING, December 26, 2008
ONE OF MY GRANDCHILDREN RECEIVED THIS BOOK FOR CHRISTMAS. AS WE WERE READING IT, I NOTICED NUMEROUS OMISSIONS AND HAZY SUPPOSED FACTS. "WHEN BARACK WAS JUST A TODDLER, HIS FATHER MOVED FAR AWAY". THE QUESTIONS WERE SWIFT AND MANY: "WHERE DID HE MOVE? WHY DID HE MOVE? WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM?" KIDS ARE NOT STUPID. BARACK MOVED TO INDONESIA WHEN HE WAS SIX WITH HER NEW HUSBAND. "WHAT HAPPENED TO HER OLD HUSBAND? DID THEY GET DIVORCED?" HOW WOULD A SIX YEAR OLD KNOW ABOUT EXTREME POVERTY??? "WHY DID HE MOVE TO HAWAII? WHY DID HE LIVE WITH HIS GRANDPARENTS? WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS MOTHER? DIDN'T SHE WANT HIM?" DITTO THE SUDDEN ARRIVAL AND SUDDEN DEPARTURE OF HIS AFRICAN FATHER! MORE QUESTIONS: "HOW DID HE PAY FOR COLLEGE? WERE HIS GRANDPARENTS RICH?"

I RE-READ THE BOOK AND HAVE TONS OF QUESTIONS ALSO: HE "FOUND" HIMSELF AT TRINITY CHURCH? THAT'S SCARY IN VIEW OF THE REV. WRIGHT'S EXTREME VIEWS ON AMERICA! THE AUTHOR HAS PAINTED A SKEWED AND FANTASY PORTRAIT OF OBAMA, WHILE IGNORING DETAILS.......LIKE FACTS. TRUTH BE TOLD, THIS BOOK READS LIKE AN INDOCTRINATION PRIMER FOR CHILDREN. ALSO, THE ILLUSTRATIONS WERE WONDERFUL BUT, AGAIN, NOT TRUTHFUL. MY GRANDSON IMMEDIATELY NOTICED THAT OBAMA'S WHITE MOTHER LOOKED VERY "BROWN" TO HIM. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ANYONE.

1.0 out of 5 stars sycophantic propaganda, December 1, 2008
By  Diane (Folsom, CA United States) - See all my reviews
If you want your child to fall in love with the "lovable" Barack, buy this book. If you are indifferent about subjecting your child to political propaganda (of the subtlest and gentlest kind), buy this book. If it is of no consequence to you to see your child subjected to political deception, buy this book. If truth is utterly beside the point in presenting historical narrative to your child, buy this book.

But if you love your child and you love truth, please don't buy this book. May I suggest "A Patriot Primer" by Lynn Cheney instead. Teach your child to love his country, not Barack Obama.

1.0 out of 5 stars Textbook example of propaganda, October 26, 2008
By  J. Tant (Under the cultural penumbra of Washington DC) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)      
If Kim Jong-Il had a children's book written about him, I doubt it would look much different than this piece of...work.

I flipped through it at my local Target and was struck by all the adulation about how Obama came along at such a "dark time" in our history to rescue us. Claims like this with nothing in context (why did his association with Bill Ayers, who wanted to kill 25 million Americans, not make the book...?) left me shaking my head in wonder and dismay. Wonder at the naked manipulation the book's author is trying to achieve, and dismay that apparently, there is a market out there eager to lap it up.

Seriously...leader as cult figure, which this book unarguably enables, is not only creepy but has no place in American politics.

Tuesday is the first day of school in VA. My wife is a Kindergarten teacher and will spend most of the day dealing with 5 year olds crying for their Mommy and trying to figure out how to go to the bathroom by themselves. Just where do they think she has time for this? Also, in the higher grades, this takes away instruction time that these kids could otherwise use to become "good students"

Well, I have a problem with it, and I don't care who the president is.

It's one thing to go on TV and do it. It's one thing for him to read a story. But when you use the classroom for the purpose of "listen to me and believe what I say is true" , the implicit message to children is that This Person Is Right and To Be Followed. So not only does Dear Leader want me to study hard and stay in school.... well, somewhere else I heard him say all rich people should pay the bills for poor people. Since he is someone To Be Followed, I am a good person if I believe him.

The precedent being set with this "inspirational speech" is not a good one.

I think you’re right.

Presidents have, in the past, visited schools and spoke to students.

I don’t recall a president ever addressing the nation’s schools at the same time.

Anyways - he’s expecting all the classrooms to have access to a television?
Isn’t going to happen.
Some schools might call an assembly - but not many I’m guessing.

The first day is usually tied with fire drills anyway isn’t it?

Obama got elected because of his vague, cryptic words, and is now watching his popularity fall because his actions and deeds belie what voters read into those words. This has created profound mistrust, and is beginning to morph into a feeling of being duped on the part of citizens, many who voted for him.

He has stated he doesn't care if he's a one-termer, which perhaps is the only instance in which his words are validated by his actions.

This attempt to get between parents and their children is yet another political blunder. "Brilliant" my butt.
