School begins for our nation’s children. What’s the biggest danger they confront: drugs, gangs, flu, cooties, dropping out, crumbling classrooms, bullies, big classes, bad teaching, dorky-looking gym suits?
Federal Education Inculcator Arne Duncan admits that The Obama entity will speak directly to innocent kids on September 8th and “challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning.”
Real Americans know what that means:
“We’re hearing from parents and grandparents that are not very happy. They really feel like it is political indoctrination.” — Stephanie Klick, Tarrant County (Texas) Republican Party chairwoman.
“No Comrade Left Behind.” — Alicia M. Cohn, Human Events.
“As far as I am concerned, this is not civics education — it gives the appearance of creating a cult of personality. This is something you’d expect to see in North Korea or in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.” — Oklahoma State Senator Steve Russell.
“It asks children to get on board with his policies and that’s overstepping his bounds. …. We teach our children values, we teach our children philosophy. Not the president.” — Joyce Kaufman, WFTL-AM (850) in South Florida.
“Indoctrination through Education has Begun.” — Lauri Regan, American Thinker
Just because real presidents have addressed students directly over live television (George H.W. Bush in 1991 and Ronald Reagan in 1988), what gives this illegitimate integallactic upstart the gall to spread his video venom to helpless human offspring?
The Columbia, Missouri School District will quarantine the contagion, and will not screen the broadcast. Say, who’s the U.S. President out there these days, anybody know?
