    I don't think Obama is responsible but this teacher is a cultist trying to indoctrinate children into her cult of personality. She has clearly deified a sitting POTUS and has no place in the public education system. I won't tolerate teachers in the public school system indoctrinating children into the cult of christianity and I sure as hell am not going to tolerate them indoctrinating children into the cult of personality of a sitting POTUS.

    We don't need laws. She should be fired. The superintendent who is defending it should, also, be fired. The school board needs to convene on this matter immediately. These radical cultists have no business teaching children. If they want to indoctrinate people I suggest they move on upto the university level, but then again I presuppose that they don't have education level to be a professor.

    Here’s a Fox News video.

    It was February, a month after the first African American in this countries history was elected President much to the chagrin of many.

    Not only was this a celebration of Obama being the first African American President, it was one video, of an eight video skit taken in February, which also celebrated Abraham Lincolns birthday, as well as Valentines Day, Groundhog Day, ect, ect.

    According to this “Fox News video” the lyrics were sent home prior to the assembly, no parents objected to them.

    No parents have come forth objecting, even after the “Fox News” induced ****storm, So how were the lyrics forced on the children?

    While your looking at the Fox video notice they have the words the children are singing crawling across the screen.

    I would be interested which ones seem to be objectionable to anyone here.

    Would you object this part“ make this country strong’ again”?

    Perhaps this is the one you find objectionable. “equal work for equal pay”.

    If not those two, maybe it was this one that struck a nerve.
    “to make sure everyone gets a chance be they red, white ,or black”.

    Yes i have a serious problem with indoctrinating elementary school kids to deify a sitting POTUS to the hymn of Jesus Loves the Little Children and the Battle Hymn of the Republic and replacing Jesus with Obama in the verse: ""He said red, yellow, black or white/All are equal in his sight. Barack Hussein Obama," but then again you might support a cult of personality on U.S. soil, however, I do not. I'll say to you what I say to theorists. **** your god.

    Indoctrinating? How can you call it indoctrinating when it was a part of a Black History month skit last February a month after the first Black Presidents inaugural in our counties history?…Oh by the way, here is the original video, notice that there is no music?Kinda make you go Hhmm…wondering where Fox got theirs doesn’t it?

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zrsl8o4ZPo"]YouTube - (No background music) School kids taught to praise Obama[/ame]

    ""He said red, yellow, black or white/All are equal in his sight. Barack Hussein Obama," but then again you might support a cult of personality on U.S. soil, however, I do not.
    How do the words "He said red, yellow, black or white/All are equal in his sight” equate to supporting a cult of personality?bizarre.

    You might want to rework this part of your post. I consider myself a part of the United States that is in the majority as for as religious beliefs are concerned, Christianity. ((78.4%) other wise you saying “**** your god” to the god of a majority of Americans.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Re: Elementary School Students Taught to Sing Praises of President Obama

    Can some one please explain to me why this is a big deal please. At worst, best I can figure is a couple teachers in one school district exercised poor judgment. Isn't there much more important things going on to spend energy worrying about?

    The child who doesn't imbibe kool-aid has no parents.
    Anyone who attempts to reduce the world to god and his commandments, doesn't have a true grasp on just how complex the world really is.

    It's a big deal to some because no matter what happens, some people just will be hard pressed to find anything redeeming about this President. No matter what he does or what other's do on his behalf, some people will find something about him to complain about.

    Again, the song was done during Black History Month in honor of this country's first Black President. Move on, folks. There are far more important things to discuss than some song performed by a multi-racial group of kids at an elementary school in honor of the nation's 44th President.

    You don't think some teacher somewhere told their students about the greatness of Bush? I suspect it is highly likely.
