    No.

    Nazi (National Socialist German Workers Party) is a socialist, therefore, left-wing political movement.

    Communism is also a left-wing ideology.

    Both are responsible for the oppression and murder of millions and millions of their own people.

    These are both wonderful examples of how left-wing ideology is oppressive, totalitarian and savage.

    Churches are private organizations funded by private donations with a private ideological purpose. These are public schools, funded by public tax dollars, with a specific goal that is apolitical.

    You don't see the difference?

    Debatable, linear political spectrum's are not very useful. Both Nazism and Communism are statist in nature and have far more in common with one another than either one has in common with liberal democracy.
    That's ridiculous. This is not Nazism, Communism or anything else like it.

    Churches are entirely private, and no one's legally forced to go to one.

    And school boards determine local school policy and approve curricula.

    It is exactly this type of mentality that makes people raise their eyebrows at Conservative/right-wing politics. Not meaning to derail the thread, but what I'm about to say is closely linked to this particular issue, IMHO.

    All this talk in conservative talk radio circles about instigating violence....they wonder where it's coming from. Well, this is it, folk! Only, I wouldn't call it "instigating violence" as much as I'd say conservative talk radio "insights fear" through a continuous stream of "word associate" or word-play.

    Example: You say socialism, communism, and continue to espouse Marxism, Nazism, Third Rheicht, Hitler Youth and it all equates to brining about fear and mistrust in government. Add to that things like "government bailouts" and "government takeover of health care" or "dealth panels" and all you've done is stir up the anxiety of the people, primarily those who where already opposed to this President. And, of course, that only brings more doubters into the frey. Add to that all the mis-information and from every direction on nearly every issue...

    No, talk radio hasn't instigated or advocated violence by any means. But they sure have planted the seeds in the minds of people to further heighten their anxiety levels. What better way to continue this "insighting of fear" than to turn attention towards our children, i.e., "these songs are indoctrinating our youth to the President's ideology". This was the exact phrasology I heard on a local conservative talk radio show just this morning during my drive-time to work. My reply to this remains the same: It's not that deep, folks. It was just a school project presented in honor of this nation's first African American president. Nothing more, nothing less.

    As far as I've been able to determine, none of the songs were sponsored nor approved in advance by the White House. All were part of an historic event in this nation's history. And IMO, none of the stories involving these songs would ever have gained any level of national attention had it not been for the President's first day of school speech. If that event had never caused an un-necessary stir in Conservative circles, these songs likely would never have become anything more than the school projects for Black History month they were intended to be. Nothing more, nothing less.

    I doubt that these songs were run past the school boards in question. When it comes to activities like this, most of it is left to teacher discretion. In this instance, it appears that a few teachers have dropped the ball.

    It happens. People sometimes let their political views into the classroom. I consider it inappropriate, depending upon how far it goes.



    I don't believe it is a vast Obama conspiracy, but it is over the line of appropriateness, and frankly, indefensible.

    Cool, another example of government schools conditioning children.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
