Indoctrination of the Young 09/24/2009

I am becoming increasingly disturbed by what I am seeing schoolchildren do these days. While I have quite a few rants about the school system, today I am focusing on schoolchildren and Obama.

First, Obama’s speech to schools. It was not as bad as some of the hype might indicate, but it was no innocent “Stay in School” speech. The flu was mentioned, for one, something that is a very overblown “epidemic” in my opinion. Along with mentioning the flu, Obama gives two very different impressions on this: one, no matter what, don’t miss any classes/school days; two, stay home when you are ill. You can’t be in two places at once – it has to be one or the other.

But something that I have a huge problem with is the idea Obama emphasizes in the speech that if you quit on school, “you’re quitting on your country.” Does anyone pick up on the problem with this?

Well, I suppose there is more than one. For one, our country…well, isn’t a country. The United States is a collection of 50 states. The 50 states are NOT one country, but rather individual States with their own Republican form of government (Constitution, Art. VI, Sec. VI: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government”). The federal government is there to ensure that the states maintain said governments, protect them from invasion, and regulate international and interstate trade. No where does the Constitution say that the citizens of the States exist to serve the United States government, or even the collection of States as a whole.

Also, the President said, “I’ve talked a lot about your government’s responsibility for setting high standards, supporting teachers and principals, and turning around schools that aren’t working where students aren’t getting the opportunities they deserve.” Um…that’s not the federal government’s responsibility. States and private funders/organizations are the ones who should be setting up schools, deciding on the curriculum, etc.

Moving on to more indoctrination…here’s homework some students have had:

Obamacare Quiz

So…it’s on Obamacare…I wonder what the “right” answers are.

Even further in indoctrination of children into being “Obama supporters” is revealed in the following video.

You should be horrified by this. Can you hear them? Can you hear what these children are singing?

“Barack Hussein Obama
He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!”

(But we are not here to serve the government or the United States. Each State is to be separate, and the federal government is only there to protect us….)

“Barack Hussein Obama
He said we must be clear today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!”

(And…what if someone is better at the work than someone else? No raise for that? Why should anyone try, then?)

“Barack Hussein Obama
He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!”

(To make sure everyone gets a chance…for what? To do what? Well, whatever it is, apparently we’re supposed to give the government more power to do it….)

“Barack Hussein Obama
He said Red, Yellow, Black or White
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!”

(What is Obama? God?)

Now, to the tune of Battle Hymn of the Republic (A song about God):

“Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say ‘hooray!'”

(Ahem. What great accomplishments?)

“Hooray, Mr. President! You’re number one!
The first Black American to lead this great nation!”

(Number one, huh?)
I have trouble interpreting the rest of the song, but the following lyrics are as close as I can tell:

“Hooray, Mr. President! We honor your great plans
To make this nation’s economy number one again.”

(Our economy is not number one…but a good start would be for the government to let us keep the money we make and spend it as we need/wish to. That would get the economy going again.)

“Hooray Mr. President, we’re really proud of you!
And the same for all Americans in the great Red White and Blue!”

(Um…no, I’m not.)

I don’t know what the last verse is, but it ends with:

“Hip hip hooray!”

Concerned?
