Okay, how do you suggest we turn this situation into a “educational moment”? My son is aware of our feelings about Barack Hussein Obama...and FoxNews is the only news channel our family ever watches...but I am not above thinking that at 11 years of age my son is beyond the influence of this silver tongued devil and the majority of the school board, teachers, etc.,
I think that I would ask to be present in the classroom when and if the Obama speech is presented and ask the teacher if you can speak to the class after the speech. Tell the kids that it is ok, and even right to listen to the President, but to also question what he is saying. Children should be encouraged to respect authority figures, like the President, but they owe allegiance to the country, not to any politician. They need to be taught to respect themselves first, they owe it to themselves to become self responsible, good citizens. They don’t owe any politician, anything.
It’s weird and uncool.
Let him know it’s a prepared statement drafted by a team of experts designed to manipulate his thought process. Advise him to stay emotionally detached from ‘the message’ and observe the reactions of his school mates and instructors.
