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

    I can just imagine an Elementary School teacher thinking to his/herself... "You know, I really want to lose my job. Why not get onto the news while I'm at it?"

    Or, more likely, they're really really ****ing stupid.

    A teacher finding an excuse to lose their job, when so many teachers are being laid off? This teacher must be feeling financially over-secure.

    Song 2:
    Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
    For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say "hooray!"

    Hooray, Mr. President! You're number one!
    The first black American to lead this great nation!

    Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
    To make this country's economy number one again!

    Hooray Mr. President, we're really proud of you!
    And we stand for all Americans under the great Red, White, and Blue!

    So continue ---- Mr. President we know you'll do the trick
    So here's a hearty hip-hooray ----

    Hip, hip hooray!
    Hip, hip hooray!
    Hip, hip hooray!


    I demand that all parties involved be immediately terminated. This is indoctrination, this is America not ****ing Nazi Germany or North Korea.
    I agree, the guilty parties should be fired. Public schools should be as political neutral as possible.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I guess that's her way of saying "I agree" but who knows.

The lyrics are cheesy, but I find nothing harmful or "indoctrinatory" about it.
    lmfao are you ****ing kidding me? Are you nuts?

    "He said we must be fair today
    Equal work means equal pay"

    "He said red, yellow, black or white
    All are equal in his sight"

    "Hooray, Mr. President! You're number one!"

    "So continue ---- Mr. President we know you'll do the trick

    etc etc

    It doesn't get anymore indoctrinating than that, in fact that second verse comes straight out of "Jesus loves the little Children", the second song was sung to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic for Christs sakes.

    I mean, the words don't proclaim him to be master of the universe or make such statements as ushering in a new world order. It simply speaks of being proud of this nation and of its president. Nothing more, nothing less.
    I understand sir you believe political indoctrination and the hero worship of a sitting president is acceptable practice at the elementary school level. To me that's just the sickest thing I could possibly imagine. This teacher is trying to raise Obama youth. Seig Heil sir.

    The teachers who attempted to indoctrinate these children into the Obama youth. That's who.
