    Um this has never happened with any sitting POTUS in the history of our country, and if it has you have no evidence for it. And these songs were not about civic pride they were about political indoctrination into a cult of personality. Teaching civic pride =/= forcing kids to chant campaign slogans and/or forcing them to say they support the political agenda of the POTUS.

    Come on dude.

    Plus, you show video of TWO classrooms. That is hardly proof of anything. If it was handed down from the white house and people were forced to do this, then fine. What people should be up in arms about is Fox showed those children on their news cast without permission from parents.

    FYI sport the teacher doing the indoctrination filmed the students and posted the video on youtube without the permission of the parents. And look we know that you and the good folks over at Olberdeushe are members of the cult of Obama, however, we should be up in arms over these children being politically indoctrinated without the permission of their parents. You people aren't even ****ing sorry you got caught. The idea that you're mad at Fox when teachers were forcing children to chant slogans pulled right from the Obama campaign and forcing them to say they agreed with the political agenda of a sitting POTUS has got to be either the most laughable or maybe sickest ****ing thing I've ever heard.

    That is the outrage, not the songs, especially since the parents didn't mind.
    You sir are a liar, I have the Hannity interview of two of the parents and they are ****ing outraged.

    Oh and your videos assertion that saying thankyou to FEMA, Bush, and Congress for helping in the wake of Katrina is the same thing as forcing children to chant a Bush campaign slogan or forcing them to say that they agree with his political agenda, is ****ing laughable.

    Really? Are you really going to come to the conclusion that elementary school children wrote these two songs? That they came up with the lyrics "equal work for equal pay" or that they came up with the idea to substitute Jesus for Obama in the following verse borrowed from "Jesus Loves the Little Children": "Yellow black or white, he said all are equal in his site," or that they thought of using the cadence for the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" in the 2nd song? Seriously?

    lol I guess I have to bust out a Stephanopolous:

    Civics - Civics is the study of rights and duties of citizenship;The study of government with particular attention given to the role of citizens― as opposed to external factors― in the operation and oversight of government

    Indoctrination - to instruct in a doctrine, principle, ideology, etc., esp. to imbue with a specific partisan or biased belief or point of view.

    Forcing kids to chant campaign slogans and forcing them to say they support a sitting POTUS's political agenda is not a civics lesson, it is political indoctrination.

    I have the interview of two of the parents proving that the Superintendent currently under investigation by the school board is a liar.

Wtf do you not get about this being political indoctrination anyway you slice it?
    the government didn't force the school to teach that song to the school kids. What dont you get about that. If that did happen, it would be a whole different story but it didnt. Let me say it again

    the government had nothing to do with this

    The government didn't, but a teacher (who works for the government) did force the song. The teacher had no business doing that.

    I never once claimed that Obama is personally responsible for this, however, the fact remains that there is currently an Obama cult of personality.
