Obama Brainwashing School Children To Succeed In School: Keep Them Kids At HOME

President Barack Obama to Make Historic Speech to America’s Students
C-SPAN and White House Web Site to Broadcast Speech Live

At 12:00 p.m., Eastern Time (ET), President Barack Obama will deliver a national address to the students of America. (Please note that this is a change from the originally scheduled time.) During this special address, the president will speak directly to the nation’s children and youth about persisting and succeeding in school. The president will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning.

The U.S. Department of Education encourages students of all ages, teachers, and administrators to participate in this historic moment by watching the president deliver the address, which will be broadcast live on the White House Web site .

Sounds innocent and worthy don't it. Ah ha, so you think! Now here is the rest of the story:

"Obama's critics say the lesson plans and the president's calls for a "supportive community" are troubling on many levels.

"In general, I don't think there's a problem if the president uses the bully pulpit to tell kids to work hard, study hard and things like that. But there are some troubling hints in this, both educationally and politically," said Neal McCluskey, associate director of Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom.

Among the concerns, McCluskey said, is the notion that students who do not support Obama or his educational policies will begin the school year "behind the eight ball," or somehow academically trailing their peers.

"It essentially tries to force kids to say the president and the presidency is inspiring, and that's very problematic," McCluskey said. "It's very concerning that you would do that."

Parents of public school students would also have to pay for that "indoctrination," regardless of their political background, he said.

"That's the fundamental problem. They could easily be funding the indoctrination of their children.""

Beck connects Mussolini to purported Obama "indoctrination next week." Discussing a bas-relief supposedly representing Mussolini, Beck said: "Gee, who is having indoctrination next week? Oh, yeah, that's right, the president, completely unrelated. This represents, at the time this was made, Mussolini. This was Mussolini.

The Fox Nation: "Will You Keep Your Kids Home the Day Obama Speaks to Schools?" On September 3, the Fox Nation highlighted Obama's speech, asking whether he was "going after school children for help." The article the Fox Nation linked to includes the headline, "Critics Decry Obama's 'Indoctrination' Plan for Students."

STIGALL: Folks, I'll say this in a different way. If Barack Obama wants time with our schoolchildren -- your children, my children, our country's children. If he thinks it's important to talk about the attributes of education, hard work, go getting a good job, nose to the grindstone, work ethic, education's important -- all those things. I didn't say the message was bad. Don't confuse his message with what's at issue here. At issue is Barack Obama has effectively called a meeting of your children with direction of public school teachers to guide them and shape them and mold them into a discussion and a way of thinking without you there. [...] He gets away with this once, it'll happen again and again. What other helpful piece of advice could President Obama disseminate at noon while you're not around. This is not his job, and it is sure as hell not his job when you're not around." [The Lou Dobbs Show, 9/02/09]

MALKIN: Yeah. Well, as I said, it's not about the text. He'll actually deliver a very innocuous speech. I can guarantee you that. But in these classrooms, which are living laboratories for left-wing activism, what you're going to get are overzealous teachers, teachers' union brass who are in the hip pockets of the Democrat Party, urge their kids to write letters, to demonize Obamacare opponents, and to call them opponents of change.And we've seen this at the town halls. Obama is not above using an 11- year-old girl as his conduit for attacking a town hall protester's signs as, quote-unquote, "mean." He did that in New Hampshire, and that girl was the daughter of an Obamacare acolyte. They are using these kids as political guinea pigs for hope and change. And we know what it's really all about. ----From the September 2 edition of Fox News' Hannity

See I told you there was MORE to it.

Now you know.

Inspiring school students to succeed in school is brainwashing indoctrination towards socialism if not full communism. I've said this all along, school's indoctrinate. They do not let the child make their own decision. They try to mold the impressionable children into zombies supporting our national causes. Hell, don't keep them home just that one day. Keep them home every day. Home school them! Otherwise they will be taught to idolize a President. If everybody home schooled we could wipe out our national debt in just 6 and one half years with the money saved. No body can keep us from praying at home like they think they can in the schools and when the President speaks on TV we can turn the communist bastard off so impressionable minds will not be influenced by his blatant attempt to proselytize them to socialism.

Let's take America back. Start by keeping our kids home from school.

This is inane. Would you have reacted this way if George Bush had delivered the exact same speech?

I am and independent and I agree with Taoist, radical right republicans are blowing this way out of proportion. As far as brainwashing goes, republicans brainwash their beliefs into their children already so the article seems a little hypocritical. You can tell yourself you dont instill your own beliefs in your children all you want, but its a lie. Plus, whether you like Obama or not, he is right to promote education because it is obvious from absurd statements on this web page that some people needed a better education.

I agree.

You didn't answer my question.

"Would you have reacted this way if George Bush had delivered the exact same speech?"

It would have never occured to GWB to promote student success in schools.

Now go back and read the blog as if you had written it. Irony is hard to get across sometimes.

The Rambling Taoist said...

Ever heard of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001? It was championed and then signed by GWB. While it's a crappy piece of legislation, I would certainly think that it's purpose was to promote student success in schools.

drlobojo said...

No Student Left Behind is functionally a school and teacher accountability program. The testing of the students is geared to ascertain whether or not the school is meeting Federally mandated standards (filtered through States). Schools that do not perform are sanctioned and put on "must improve" list. In practice teacher's that don't improve their scores are held responsible locally as well. Of course all of this was implemented with new testing systems and little Federal funding and a threat of all other Federal funds withheld if you didn't do it. For 8 years American kids have been taught to pass the Federally mandated tests. Curriculum, what is that?
Student success? Hardly.
