  8. Gross. In light of this sickening propaganda pageant, the pop quiz in which students were tested on their knowledge of Obamacare talking points, and the fact that Obama pitched universal healthcare to the students in the room BEFORE his address to the Nation’s schoolchildren, all the scumbags in the MSM and on the leftist blogs owe the parents who were concerned about indoctrination a huge apology. Those parents were smeared as idiotic hysterics that are too stupid to be entrusted with raising their own children, but of course, it turns out that their concerns were well-founded.

  9. FYI: Michelle Malkin has learned the location of the school and has e-mailed the principal asking for details about whether parents were informed that their children would be videotaped singing an ode to Obama. She has also learned the identity of a children’s book author who was a classmate of Obama’s at Harvard and apparently taught the kids the song and is the author of the children’s book “I am Barack Obama.” Malkin has e-mailed her for comment as well.

    Every single leftist, do-gooder school administrator or teacher involved in this should be held up to brutal, unrelenting ridicule and shame (discipline by the school district is way too much to hope for).

  10. Bruce, if the readers at Gay Patriot are disinclined to wait for a response to M. Malkin’s emails, they could send their own email to the school’s principal, Dr Denise King. Hey, the democrat underground types do it all the time in a concerted fashion. I’ve written letters to the editor in our local paper and had unsolicited people knocking at my door to debate my opinion… fresh from the Washtenaw County Democrat office.

    As we all know, the buck stops at the principal’s and the president’s desks… and she had to know what was happening in the auditorium of the school she’s charged with administering.

    dking@burltwpsch.org It’s a lot easier than a phone call.

  11. BTW, the school district’s superintendent is 100% behind the video and the use of those kids to trumpet Black History month… or is that Barack History Month?

    He said:

    September 24, 2009

    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.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Christopher M. Manno,
    Superintendent of Schools

    Don’t you love that the recording and distribution were unauthorized but the appropriateness of using kids as political fodder wasn’t?

    Dr Manno’s email is cmanno@burltwpsch.org

  12. I’m sure they sang a lovely song about Condeleeza Rice as well, it just wasn’t recorded or distributed.

  13. #12: “I’m sure they sang a lovely song about Condeleeza Rice as well, it just wasn’t recorded or distributed.”

    I’m sure you’re right, Draybee. They probably just couldn’t manage to get the three-part harmony juuuuuuust right.

  14. Hmmmm. Interesting that the same sock puppets like Tano who criticized conservative parents as crazed whack jobs for being concerned about the indoctrination of their children have been curiously silent with regard to this post. Hmmm.

  17. It seems that Charisse Carney-Nunes, a former classmate of the president’s at Harvard Law School, is responsible for the propaganda efforts in the New Jersey schools. She’s been quoted as encouraging kids to “find your inner Obama.”

    If I could find my inner Obama I’d kick his skinny ass!!

  20. Maybe I’m missing something here, but why is it the first defense against one of these tapes is the taping was unauthorized? ACORN said the same thing. Makes me wonder why there is so much stuff available for taping?

    The other thing I noticed is how racist this song is. It sings about the first black President; nothing about his accomplishments or what he stands for. So much for Martin Luther King’s judged on the content of one’s character instead of the color of one’s skin.

  22. What’s the big surprise? You don’t think todays liberals weren’t singing pro Stalin and Mao and LBJ songs in grade school?

    Comment by Gene in Pennsylvania — September 24, 2009 @ 9:19 pm - September 24, 2009

  23. When I first read about this, I was of course disgusted, but not surprised. It proves that all of the concerns expressed by parents about indoctrination were absolutely justified when Obama gave his speech to the Nation’s schoolchildren. Those same parents were viciously criticized and ridiculed by Obama’s foot soldiers in the MSM and on the leftist blogs. But as usual, liberals have once again verified that they have zero respect for a parent’s right to control what their children are taught with regard to political and social issues.

    And now that I’ve looked more closely at the lyrics, I realize that this video also proves that the criticism liberals got for worshipping Obama like a deity was completely justified as well. The song actually lifts a lyric from “Jesus Loves Me,” and alters it to “red, yellow, black, or white, they are equal in his sight.” It’s sickening.

    This is inexcusable, as is the Superintendent’s smug statement. “The recording and distribution of the class activity were unauthorized.”????!!!! Yes, Superintendent Manno, I’m sure it’s very troubling that this video got out while clearly this should have been kept as a closely guarded secret about the school’s curriculum. Unbelievable.

    No. There’s enough crazy and silliness to go around, TGC, be it at Young Elementary or Devil’s Lake.

  27. Im sorry Jody,

    Praying FOR a president is not crazy, praying TO a president is crazy.

  28. Aw, c’mon. They are just singing an updated version of “We are the World.” Now it is “He is the World.” Nobody complained when kiddies sang “Here Comes Peter Cottontail.” Geezsch, people get so whacked out when children praise the Dear Leader. I hope they sing “I Only Have Ears for You.”

  29. helio is right “28.Aw, c’mon. They are just singing an updated version of “We are the World.” Now it is “He is the World.” Nobody complained when kiddies sang “Here Comes Peter Cottontail.”

    Of course, the same people who pushed the kids to this would have had a cow if the kids sang Silent Night or Christmas carols in December.

    Songs of Worship now mean Songs About Obama.

    Comment by Michigan-Matt — September 25, 2009 @ 10:46 am - September 25, 2009

  30. All this does pose an interesting question. How do you teach kids civics, and how to appreciate their country without “indoctrinating” them? How do you teach to respect the highest office, arguably, in the world, especially when you may not agree with the person holding that office? What would be a better way?

    And yes, the lyrics of this song bother me VERY much since some of them were lifted from ‘Jesus loves the little Children.’

    Comment by Beverly Lynn — September 25, 2009 @ 10:55 am - September 25, 2009

  31. The video of them doing that to Bush is mildly creepy, but far less than the Obama video. Firstly, they’re not praying to him, they’re praying for him, and praying that he continues his policies. Specifically, that he surround himself with Christians, and, in another one, that he appoint pro life judges. I, in britain, have prayed (in less, hand reaching, creepy ways) that our prime minister adopt certain policy choices, and that our local mp does as well.

    Secondly, they’re not part of a larger Bush campaign effort (imagine if the democrat declared leader of the Republican party, Rush Limbaugh, had done something like this for McCain) while major news networks such as NBC are actively campaigning to deify Obama (with several journalists telling how special Obama makes them feel).

    Thirdly, this is extra creepy, as they wrote a song to praise him. The kids in the Jesus camp, the worst they did was say “One nation under god”, from the pledge of allegiance.

    They weren’t actually talking about how great Bush was, simply two fairly minor policies. The song alternates with some generally good idea, to some ideology of Obama’s (patriotism, affirmative action for black people and women, non racism) then starts openly worshiping Obama (Obama is amazing, number one horray! Obama is so smart for his Stimulus bill, we’re proud of all your policy choices, we know you’re right, hip hip horray!)

    It shouldn’t. At Jesus camp, they didn’t say Bush was an amazing person for doing what he did. They didn’t say they knew he was number one. This indoctrination is far worse than Jesus camp. They’re forcing the kids to sing about how good his highly controversial policies were, and encouraging the kids that everything Obama does is good. It’s absolutely horrible that Obama’s supporters have done something that’s worse than Jesus camp.

    At least, the people at Jesus camp, if they change their faith, they haven’t had it forced into them that Bush was good because of his colour, or because of their faith in him.

  32. Creepy Children’s Choruses?

    But of course! For he is:

    Barack Obama: Our First Giant, Flying, Fire-Breathing Turtle President

    I’m trying to start a quality blog and need smart people from the right to come by and comment. Give it a try!

    Thanks.

  33. Praying FOR a president is not crazy, praying TO a president is crazy.

    Both are pretty crazy, AE.

    Children singing about the wonders of the president, though, remains a bipartisan activity.

    Comment by Jody — September 25, 2009 @ 5:21 pm - September 25, 2009

  34. And here we see the entertainment value in Jody’s spin; a song that mentions Bush in addition to numerous other people and entities, is equivalent to a song about Obama that mentions no one else and refers specifically to Obama in every single line.

    Both are pretty crazy, AE.

    Obviously not, since you’re not condemning and blasting the Obama song in the same fashion that you are what you allege is a “Bush song”. The fact that your first action was to blame Bush, rather than to deal with the Obama song directly, demonstrates that you are merely trying to rationalize for the behavior that your Barack Obama and your fellow liberals support and encourage.

  35. ND30, it just isn’t a discussion at GPdC until you’ve pulled up the hay wagon, opened your dirty clothes bag, and built a straw man. That look on your face as you wack away is always precious.

  36. Jody, I hate to be the one to break this to you, but that’s not a window through which you’re making your observations; it’s a mirror.

    Not that you’re the first Obama Party member to make this mistake, mind you.

    Comment by North Dallas Thirty — September 25, 2009 @ 7:31 pm - September 25, 2009

  37. Wack. Wack. Wack. Wack. Wack.

    Comment by Jody Wheeler — September 25, 2009 @ 8:29 pm - September 25, 2009

  38. The people singing about aid from Bush and FEMA and Congress- that’s not controversial. Pretty much everyone believes the government should help people that have been hit by a hurricane. It also doesn’t call Bush ‘the one’, and shares the praise for democratic members of congress and FEMA.

    Can you at least agree that the Obama song was stupid, and indoctrination, and shouldn’t have been done? Even if you believe that other, far more mild actions, are just as stupid and indoctrination?
