Skip to comments.Confirmed: Kids' Praising Obama an Official Public School Activity (That Creepy Singing Video)
Posted on 09/24/2009 10:38:12 AM PDT by kristinn
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

Zero worship ping!
You have to listen to the remix of this song..with lyrics like
lay down was massah nappy
and bare his children nappy
and pickin cotton nappy
This is inappropriate for children..and THIS is the woman who posted the video of those kids.
The web site for the school states the video was filmed on JUNE 9. . .NOT during Black History Month????
I thought the same but the kids are wearing long-sleeved shirts.
it doesn’t say June 9 on the schools website. Please post the quote because I see it nowhere.
The person who reuploaded the video said around June. I don’t know what Charisse put in her version.
So can we have Christian history month and have the children sing Jesus Loves Me?
These people need to learn that acting and thinking like North Koreans is not a virtue
WK Kellogg Foundation reads book.
This is NJ, right? I’m pretty sure the parents just think it’s lovely.
This is the mentality we’re up against. And they call *us” teabaggers.
bummer, what happened to the pic I put up...
Charisse’s book has a picture of her and Obama taken in 1991. Trying to find the picture.
“The request cannot be processed at this time. The amount of traffic exceeds the Web site’s configured capacity.”
Heh heh heh....
Charisse was a lawyer for the National Science Foundation. soros gives grants there but I don’t know much else about it.
I understand. Maybe this will help to explain the Germans of the time and their youth. http://www.calvin.edu/academic/cas/gpa/jufeier.htm
Dr. Christopher M. Manno,
Translation of letter: I, Christopher M. Manno, am not sorry the kids were worshiping Obama and making NAZI salutes to him. I am sorry the video was released.
What a jerk! And...People entrust their children to be under the supervision of this man? UNBELIEVABLE!
Equal pay for equal work was a theme for the Communists according to something I just read
And thinking about it..I remember a Seinfeld episode about this.
I think it is the one with the dwarf elf wanting to be paid as much as Santa Claus...
Kramer becomes a Communist and gets fired for spreading communist propaganda...sheesh, why can’t we fire Obama...
Where are the songs from French history month? Jewish history month? British history month?
You people here are sooooo talented and creative.
Children of the (A)Corn
LOL LOL LOL,
Can you say “nappy”?
Isn’t it spelled Knappy?
better to hear & watch on youtube
If you go to actual web site for the school, it states the video was filed on June 9. It also states the video was not authorized for release. I know what the Superintendent is saying, but it doesn’t appear to be factual.
Medved is about to play the audio of this video.
I just went back to check the web site. It states the video was filmed on “aprox. June 19” not June 9 as I posted on a prior email.
that is from the VIDEO..not the School’s official position..which is that it was filmed during February.
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.”
