“Mmm mmm mmm:” New details about the Dear Leader song video
Michelle Malkin.com ^ | September 24, 2009 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 09/24/2009 10:12:08 AM PDT by TenthAmendmentChampion

In case you were wondering which school taught kids that “Barack Hussein Obama mmm mmm mmm” rap that I posted yesterday afternoon (http://michellemalkin.com/2009/09/23/dear-leader-in-the-classroom/), here are some new details.

The video was originally posted in June 2009 here by YouTube user “brandnuwords.” Update: She has now removed the video sometime this morning. Here is the screenshot:

“Brandnuwords” is the YouTube account of Charisse Carney-Nunes. More on her in a moment.

YouTube user “alteredbeat” re-posted the video on September 6 here.

Alteredbeat e-mailed Carney-Nunes to inquire about the location of the school. She told him it was a school in South Jersey.

This screenshot from the video…

…matches up with this picture of the auditorium at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington Township, NJ:

I have e-mailed the principal of the school with the following questions:

Did Ms. Carney-Nunes have permission to videotape the performance?

Were parents notified that their children would be participating in this activity prior to the lesson? Was Ms. Carney-Nunes invited to the school to teach the children the song and about her book, “I am Barack Obama?”

Was the principal aware of this event and taping?

Back to Charisse Carney-Nunes. Via ModernConservative, Carney-Nunes is senior vice president of The Jamestown Project, “the award-winning author of the children’s books, I Am Barack Obama (2009),” and according to her biography, “a graduate of Harvard Law School, where she was a schoolmate of President Obama.” I have e-mailed Carney-Nunes for comment as well.

The Obama school song video that she taped shows her book featured on an easel next to the children hailing Dear Leader. She promotes her book as a tool that “allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, Who will change the world? Ultimately, he realizes that he will.”

She has spread this creepy cult message to schoolchildren across the country. Coming to a classroom near you?

***

We already know what the response will be to critics of this elementary school agitprop: Raaaaaacist!

***

Mark Tapscott at the Examiner has a related warning on the driving force behind the progressive movement. Guess he’s just another “kook,” too.

***

Jon at Exurban League has a response from the school district confirming the rap session as an official school activity.

The poorly written statement is posted on the school district’s site.

Download and save the video clip because you can be sure that it will be taken down and the 0bamunist hordes will be sneering ‘video? what video?’ soon enough.

This is no different than the state-mandated adulation of Hitler in the 1930’s and the teacher(s) responsible should be fired on the spot.

Yes, apparently “diversity” means excluding white children! Of course, they aren’t to be excluded when it comes time to force them to sing songs of praise & propaganda about Dear Leader.

Not a whole lot of diversity in that CD cover.

Or maybe too much, depending on your POV.

An LSU Sports political board member found the video! He sent it to Drudge and the rest is history.

As the government of the Roman Empire became more autocratic and rulers came to enjoy almost unlimited power, there came about in Rome an “Imperial Cult,” in which emperors were worshipped as gods and accepted divine honors. This belief in the emperor’s divine authority eventually led to the requirement of a sacrifice to the emperor as a sign of loyalty.

All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Red & Yellow, Black or White. That sounds so vaguely familiar.........

Yeah, that’s what I got from it. It’s OK to do this, indoctrinate kids, teach them to worship BO, just don’t leave any incriminating videos around where non-BO cult members can see them. Some people associated with BO are not ready for prime time.

We need to propose some guidelines. For example, if you are doing anything nonacademic and ideology-related with children just substitute the name of a religion or religious figure to see if you think it would be “ok”. If you can substitute “Jesus” for “Obama” and it still sounds okay for public school children, then it is probably okay. Teachers: use the same standard for EVERYTHING that is an ideology or belief system or you will find yourselves in “iffy” territory and we will nail you on it as surely as the anti religious zealots will. Everybody has access to telephones, lawyers, pens, stamps. Oh, and I think protests as well.

The main problem with this song is the repeated, rhythmic and trance-inducing mantra like repeating of BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. Please teach your children about the various ways minds can be manipulated. Warn them about chants, repetition and the many other techniques. Our only readily available defense is teaching them what manipulation looks like. Point it out when you watch advertisements with them and compare it to what teachers might do. Teach them about logical fallacies and “everybody’s doing it” or “authorities say so”. Encourage them to teach their friends about these things too. TRIAGE.

Here is my song for Obama:

Barrack Obama; you can take a flying leap,

Barrack Obama; my taxes I will pay a heap,

Barrack Obama; Cash for Clunkers was a big success,

Barrack Obama; for foreign carmakers, and junkyards you did mess,

Barrack Obama; healthcare you want to make over,

Barrack Obama; I’d rather go to health care used by Rover,

Barrack Obama; some day I would like to retire,

Barrack Obama; thanks to you, at 85 I’ll still be in the line to hire,

Barrack Obama; you state you were born in Honolulu,

Barrack Obama; yeah right, and Bea Arthur was always hot wearing a Mumu,

Barrack Obama; you promised harmony and zen,

Barrack Obama; get ready for a conservative sweep in 2010.

From “1984”:

A spontaneous ritual of devotion to Big Brother (”BB”) is illustrated at the end of the “Two Minutes Hate”:

“At this moment the entire group of people broke into a deep, slow, rhythmic chant of ‘B-B! .... B-B! .... B-B!’—over and over again, very slowly, with a long pause between the first ‘B’ and the second—a heavy murmurous sound, somehow curiously savage, in the background of which one seemed to hear the stamps of naked feet and the throbbing of tom-toms. For perhaps as much as thirty seconds they kept it up. It was a refrain that was often heard in moments of overwhelming emotion. Partly it was a sort of hymn to the wisdom and majesty of Big Brother, but still more it was an act of self-hypnosis, a deliberate drowning of consciousness by means of rhythmic noise.”

Coming to a school near you........................
