Confirmed: Kids' Praising Obama an Official Public School Activity (That Creepy Singing Video)
Exurban League ^ | Thursday, September 24, 2009 | Jon

Posted on 09/24/2009 10:38:12 AM PDT by kristinn

An important update about the creepy video we posted yesterday. The Burlington Township School District, to which B. Bernice Youngs Elementary School belongs, posted the following Letter to Parents this morning.

Dear Burlington Township Families:

Today we became aware of a video that was placed on the internet which has been reported in the media. The video is of a class of students singing a song about President Obama. The activity took place during Black History Month in 2009, which is recognized each February to honor the contributions of African Americans to our country. Our curriculum studies, honors and recognizes those who serve our country. The recording and distribution of the class activity were unauthorized.

If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me or Dr. King, Principal of B. Bernice Young School, directly.

Sincerely,
Dr. Christopher M. Manno,
Superintendent of Schools

The recording and distribution of the class activity were unauthorized.

But not the shameless adulation of our Fearless Leader on a scale that would have delighted Nicolae Ceausescu.

That, at least, was perfectly kol b'seder.

So the activity was both sanctioned and authorized, but the leaking of the incriminating evidence was unauthorized. Nice.

Er, he doesn’t see anything wrong with forcing children to sing hymns of praise to Dear Leader. He’s just annoyed that it got “leaked.”

Talk about a non-apology.

Didn’t this also happen in Germany? The Hitler Youth also sang to Hitler. Is this what we are teaching our own children?

And part of Black History Month back in February....

February is a great month to take your kids out of school for a long winter break skiing or sailing in the Caribbean.

Strange. Obama never served our country. This Praise Fest took place a few weeks after Obama took office. What a crock.

There is no excuse for what they did. Could you imagine the outrage if school kids were made to sing to G. W. Bush? Heck, I would join the outrage!

Another reason to homeschool.

Not that the activity was unauthorized but people finding out was unauthorized.

I just saw this video. They are literally praying to him. “In his sight all are equal”????? As if he were a deity?

And besides, it’s not even true.

I could teach them a song about Obama, but it might actually piss the parents off to teach the kids those kind of words.

Okay, Mr. Superintendent, now we understand.

Please post similar videos you made of children singing to Condi Rice, Clarence Thomas, and Colin Powell.

We cannot even sing Christmas carols that MENTION Jesus, nor can we even call the vacation CHRISTmas break, but we sure can sing to the “new” messiah!(BARF)

Yes, because people who are involved in brainwashing don't like to see their activities exposed to the light of day.

It's akin to how cockroaches scatter when you turn on the light.

My fear is that this kind of "praise" and adulation is indeed happening on a regular basis.

It shouldn't happen anytime and Black History Month is no excuse. It will be unauthorized to report this activity.

The Superintendent says he will takes calls..but all calls are going to Public Relations with a full mail box.

I am watching to see if there are any parents of those students who didn’t know anything about this.

So are you parents of these children happy about them singing songs of devotion to help sell someone's book?

How about the children being taught to worship at the altar of bambi? Is that okay with you?

Bet it was great to see your children being posted on youtube...was that okay too?

Actually....I don’t think the Nazis ever wrote any songs with Hitler in them....at least I’ve never heard of that. Germans typically don’t sang much and if they do....it’s a beer-song usually.

So the parents are “not authorized” to know what the school is teaching their children? Are these people nuts?

I would yank my kids out of that school immediately.

The taxpayers need to go absolutely postal with lawsuits on this!
