Posted on 03/23/2012 7:14:22 AM PDT by Mozilla

A middle school teacher in Fairfax, VA forced the students in his civics honor class to perform research on Republican presidential candidates to find their “weaknesses” The students research was then sent to the Obama campaign. The Daily Caller reported.

The 8th grade students, who attend Liberty Middle School in Fairfax County, were required to seek out the vulnerabilities of Republican presidentialhopeful and forward them to the Obama campaign. “This assignment was just creepy beyond belief — like something out of East Germany during the Cold War,” one frustrated father, who asked for his family to remain anonymous, told The Daily Caller.

My best friend for 45 years is in El Ed in an East Coast city. Many of her friends have retired early so they don't have to teach the curriculum required by the Obama Admin’s School Dictators. This comes from the top, I am sure.

I HATE the NEA.

And, isn’t ironic, this is taking place in a town called “Liberty”. Sad how educators have totally taken that word for granted.

The teacher probably has a case of “I don’t know anyone that doesn’t support 0bama”.

Right. The assignment was probably pre-approved by the NEA and the school Board.

No surprise. I’ve seen teachers make the kids write advocacy letters to politicians for grades*, then they mail them in (at least certain ones), and later you see the pol on TV or radio saying, I’m proposing this new legislation because I have received thousands of letters from concerned children. Let me read a few...

Almost as if DNC was coordinating with the teacher unions to give the illusion of broad support and consensus.

*I know a dad who says his kid got a D for suggesting that Global Warming needed a closer look scientifically. Kids that thought it was real got A’s, even with spelign errors.

From Investor's Business Daily (IBD), August 27, 2008:

"Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.

One of Ayer's descriptions for a course called 'Improving Learning Environments' says prospective K-12 teachers need to 'be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.

The Annenberg papers are quite extensive — 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama's relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.'..."

Even more disturbing, this father is already so scared of reprisals that he will only complain anonymously.

We have to call these people out, personally. It’s good to expose them. But someone has to be ‘boots on the ground’ and be confrontational. The Left, the loud irrational minority, does a good job of this - and it gives the perception that their ignorance is the status-quo. We have to “fight” (figuratively).

This incident does have a ring of a communist country to it. Where if you didn’t support the current government you would get rounded up so to prove your loyalty you had to pledge allegiance to them and help them out.

Undercover agent Larry Grathwohl discusses the Weather Underground's post-revolution governing plans for the United States:

Larry Grathwohl:

"I asked, 'well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?' and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say 'eliminate,' I mean 'kill.' Twenty-five million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious."

Ah yes...the ulimate goal of the left and the communists is to brainwash the masses with leftist/communist drivel. Re-education of the masses and elimination of the real history iss the aim as exemplified by left wing historian Howard Zinn.

And highlighted today by people like Melissa Harris-Perry who MSNBC gave a weekend show to.

She used to come on MSNBC just to attack all the facts Glenn Beck would present on his show or to attack the tea party and people like David Horowitz, Mark Levin, and Andrew Breitbart.

one frustrated father, who asked for his family to remain anonymous

Wimp. Wrong response. Stand up and be counted. What's with parents now days? Do they not understand that the school works at the parents' discretion? Be front and center at school board meetings. Run for school board. Sit yourself down in the principal's office and make your demands heard loud and clear. Write letters to the editor. Form a PTO and get other parents involved. Volunteer at school. Be there at afterschool activities. There are a million ways to curtail some of this stupidity. My last one just graduated and I was the cause of some rule change at least twice a year throughout their school years. Sure, it takes some effort to get off the couch but it's for your kids. Besides, it's also fun watching the admin squirm.

Just by way of clarification, the assignment was to find out to WHOM in the Obama campaign they could send their research; apparently, actually sending it wasn’t in the assignment.

Maybe the teacher took that task upon himself? And, one has to wonder, was there a similar assignment to his students in ‘08 when there was a contested Dem primary, with information about who in the McCain campaign should receive the results?

The assignment itself, were it not so partisan, is actually good for students and especially voters who typically know as much about the candidate(s) they vote for as Congressmen know what’s in bills they sign.
