Posted on 09/05/2009 5:05:18 AM PDT by Kaslin
Most people have now heard that President Obama is going to address Americas school children on September 8. Hell be speaking to them directly, without their parents there to serve as a filter.
Taken with an outrageous situation unfolding in New Hampshire, where a home-schooling mother has been ordered to put her daughter in public school because the daughter is too outspoken in her Christian beliefs, a terrifying truth emerges: If you can force a child into government schools, you can control that childs mind
On Tuesday, around the nation, millions of children will be in a setting where theyre expected to accept what adults tell them, and where they are required to obey.
Many teachers will carry out White House instructions (now officially modified) to give writing topics to their students. The original theme: How can I help President Obama? Children are also encouraged to read books about Obama, and even kindergarteners will be asked, Why is it important that we listen to the president?
Meanwhile, a new video is circulating entitled I Pledge, wherein popular celebrities lend their voices, saying I pledge this and that. While some of those pledges are harmless or even helpful, and others silly, some carry a far-left message.
The most disturbing part is when one speaker says, I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama. In case you missed that, toward the end actress Demi Moore adds, I pledge to be a servant to our president.
Oh my word.
No citizen in a free country pledges to be a servant of the president. We pledge our allegiance to the flag and to the republic for which it stands, never to the president. He is our servant, not the other way around.
This is the kind of adoration given to dictatorial leaders in totalitarian regimes, unlike in America, where its our civic duty to question our leaders and hold them accountable.
And what is the most disturbing fact about this video? Its being shown in some public schools.
For those who think they can simply keep their children out of government schools, there is an unfolding story that every parent should know. In New Hampshire, a family court judge has ordered a divorced mother, Brenda Voydatch, to place her home-schooled 10-year-old daughter in a public school. The girls academics are excellent, but the non-custodial father sought a court order to force her into public school.
Why? Because the court order expresses the judges concern that the daughter shares her mothers rigidity on questions of faith. In other words, the girl is a devout, evangelical Christian. The court wrote that she must be exposed to multiple systems of belief, and so must attend a secular school.
Where, evidently, she will watch Barack Obama and write papers about how to help the president advance his leftist agenda.
To be fair, it must be noted that the divorced parents agreed to joint decision-making as part of their divorce. This is yet another example of how children all too often pay the price in domestic disputes.
But the court tipped its hand. If this were about meeting a childs educational needs beyond academics, that might be another discussion. But the court references the girls Christian faith, and the mothers faith, and cites that as a crucial factor in ordering the girl into a secular public school.
The court overstepped its bounds, violating both the First Amendments guarantee of religious freedom and the rights of conscience of both the mother and daughter. The Alliance Defense Fund has taken this case to contest the order.
Controlling the learning environment allows you to control a childs mind. When children are in school at a young and impressionable age, they know that theyre there to learn. Theyre told by their parents to listen to the teachers, to do what the teacher says, to trust what they are told. In this environment, children can be taught to believe almost anything. Communist and fascist regimes have taken advantage of this for decades, indoctrinating children to become obedient servants to the government, to adore the head of state and to fanatically follow that leader.
This New Hampshire situation is frightening, especially in the context of public schools being told to channel in Barack Obama.
That is why no matter how the White House tries to spin his talk as just telling them to stay in school, it won't fly. His first message was how to "help" him.
On Tuesday, in my classroom, twenty five children will be in a setting where they're expected to illustrate and label the position of the earth in conjunction with the sun during the four seasons.
My question is how long will it be until all patriotic and God loving Americans will pull their kids out of the government indoctrination centers and teach them at home?
George H. W. Bush talked to students apparently in 1991, which of course the White House is now using as a defense. Does anyone know how long GHW Bush talked for? From what I hear Obama is to talk to the children for 2 hours (an awnfully long time to tell them to study hard and stay in school).
Any info regarding Bush’s talk would be appreciated.
not soon enough IMHO
Two hours of watching his head turn left and right constantly will hypnotize the kids to his bilge.
I don’t even remember President Bush 41 talking to school children. I am sure though the theme was not what can you do for President Bush
It's not - for grade schoolers. This is what we have to watch out for. The notion that our children must "listen" to the president. For any other president that would be okay. But, to this president that means "obey" - that's the nefarious part of this. This, I think, was meant to be the first of many such "listen" talks. I hope that has been shot down.
I agree with you, just highlighting one of the more dangerous quotes in the article.
This is why the Constitution gave men freedom from tyrannical power over all Americans which the democrats have simply abandoned and ignored in their lawlessness and hatred of God, family and country.
The satanist democrat communist mind gives children's lives over to government abuse on the fallacy of benefiting all society as all communist government do. They call it diversity.
Worthless communists indoctrinating children's into brown shirts neo nazis for the national socialist (Nazi) agenda of one world government to come under the antichrist.
But woe unto them that corrupt the minds of children, it had been better for them if they had not been born when they suffer the wrath of the God of Israel at their judgment.
Why with a fresh green salad and a baked potato
Frankfurt School followers infiltrated public and higher education, the N.E.A. and many church denominations during those years. Those folks brought us sensitivity training and consensus building.
Their Marxist-socialist plan was indoctrination of youth over time, leading to an eventual vote that would turn America hard left. That was 11/4/8.
Search on “Frankfurt School”.
After doing a web search, I found that in October of 1991, President George Bush Sr. gave a talk at a local Washington DC school, Alice Deal Jr. High School. The text of his talk is available onlne as well. In a nutshell, he talked about staying in school and how important an education is for their future. He spoke about making their parents proud, and said that they should not study hard simply because the President of the USA said so but because that is the right thing for them to do. He did not ask them to be his “servant” , lol. The school statistics indicate that it is more than 50% black, 28% white and 14% hispanic. The speech was another in a long, long line of speeches going back more than 40 years given to minority students to tell them to stay in school, yada yada yada.
Hells bells, they do not get a good education in the communist public school system, they are indoctrinated into the cruelty of communist methods of destruction with little emphasis on education and edifying.
The liberal communist public school system is just a day care center whose role is propaganda for the totalitarian government the obamination administration is preparing America for.
This mother needs an attorney to appeal the court’s decision. Her 1st amendment rights were violated. I sure wouldn’t sit down and take the judge’s decision. Or, she could move out of that liberal state. That, of course, depends on what type of agreement she has with her ex.
This is happening in New Hampshire.

Government schools are beyond hope. People need to stop using them.
