The ever-vigilant crew at WeaselZippers has uncovered a jaw-dropping incident at Woodbrook Elementary School in Virginia in which third-grade students performed (and school officials claim wrote) a song titled, Part of the 99 as part of a Kid Pan Alley performance in October.

Under my rule in Savageania the administrators would be offered a blindfold and any last words. Boy, lucky for them I haven’t taken power yet!
If you do a quick intermet search for “barack hussein obama mmmm mmmm mmmm” it is frightening how many NEA/Union teachers have participated in coarse, raw, and unabashed political indoctrination with students.
Oh give me a break! Those 3rd graders did not write that song. The administrators of the school are full of crap! This I would not tolerate one bit!
...the boys mother, knowing all too well that the OWS movement is anything but peaceful (considering the hundreds of rapes, assaults, and other violent crimes that have occurred during the movement), voiced her concern by emailing the teacher after the third day of classroom discussion. Not surprisingly, the teacher did not reply.
After five days of her son coming home and reporting that the discussion/activities had continued, Mom contacted the principal, who was very responsive and amicable. A meeting with the teacher was arranged, in which the teacher explained that he never intended to offend anyone and that the classroom discussions concerning OWS were student initiated (even though the teacher had originally asked for current examples of peaceful protest, and handouts with discussion questions were distributed).
When mom asked why the Tea Party movement was not also being discussed in class, the teacher responded with several excuses, one being that he didnt want it to get political. As if the OWS movement isnt political! He also said that the Tea Party is a political party. When momwho happens to be her countys Tea Party coordinatorcorrected him, he retorted that the Tea Party gets funding. Not only is this assumption ridiculous, its actually quite the opposite, as I learned from the mother that her Tea Party group has actually turned away large donations from individuals within the group.
What’s shocking is that this is not shocking.
