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.
Dr. Christopher M. Manno,
Superintendent of Schools

The whole thing make sme sick to my stomach. What happened to “it is your duty to question your leaders!”?
This is what happens with “public” education. It’s really “government” education. Even though we as Americans are having success with tea parties and such I don’t think we have completely discovered just how big of trouble our country is facing. Liberty and freedom are not just being threatened but has in fact been lost, albeit not completely but the damage is done except for the cleanup and closing of loose ends.
We are faced not with stopping the march of tyranny but rather reversing the power that has become entrenched and is expanding at an exponential rate. We have a lot more work to do than we realize.
Sorry, rant off
And here’s an “oldie” but a goodie
Ashville N.C. School teacher browbeats student over being a McCain supporter
Wonder what happened to the sweet, kindly teacher?
It appears the Fox News story I posted yesterday was edited and some information has now been put back in. Maybe they wanted to confirm the death threats.
There were death threats or at least one.
The teacher who did this has retired.
But here is the interesting thing. The kids also did songs about Washington and Lincoln. I want to see the lyrics of those songs.
“But Andrea Ciemnolonski, the parent of another one of the students in the video, said the song was part of a second-grade project on a variety of topics related to the month of February, such as Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day.
“They did songs about President Washington, Lincoln, and they did do one about President Obama,” Ciemnolonski said. “My daughter was in the class that did the songs about Obama. It was black history month. ... It was something for the kids to celebrate.”
