Georgia elementary school verse: ‘Obama ran so our children could fly’
http://eagnews.org ^ | february 19, 2013 | Kyle Olson

It’s no secret government schools have put President Obama on a pedestal unlike any other national leader.

Schools have been named after him long before his retirement or death, which is rather unprecedented. Students have been led in organized chants of his honored name. There are lesson plans comparing him to Abraham Lincoln.

But sometimes school employees take the rhetoric a bit too far and wind up in propaganda territory. The latest example comes from DeKalb County, Georgia.

For Black History Month, Livsey Elementary School created a cute display with the lines:

Rosa sat…so Martin could walk.

Martin walked…so Obama could run.

Obama ran…so our children could fly.

Just wait until these folks realize that it’s not “fly” but “die”. How many kids will have to die before Obama flies away.

My sister gave me a kid’s book about Obama a couple years ago. On the inside slipcover she wrote “Because you’re never too old to believe in fairy tales”. LOL

Sounds like the chant on MLK day - -

“America has had many Presidents but only one King”

It is not unprecedented. I beleive Stalin was rather fond of having his name laid on all things public.

That works.

I really get sick and tired of not being able to express myself on FR in my own words ... The word I grew up with. The word I learned in 2nd grade when my sister and I were jumped and beaten. The word I really learned in 3rd grade when my favorite uncle was clubbed over the head with a 2x 4 and stuffed in an 55 gal drum and burned to death because he was delivering oil in the middle of the night to bunch of f'n negroes in the middle of winter because they had no heat.

But now, my anger is only directed at all of the socialist that votes for Obama.

Haha...that’s my county...good old Dekalb...most of the School Board members are trying to fight off embezzlement and misuse of school funds charges. It is one of the districts deeply involved in the “test cheating scandal” where the teachers fixed wrong answers to show improvement and get bonuses. It is a cesspool when it comes to education....but there are a few decent neighborhoods.
