Schools have used students as little lobbyists on everything from illegal immigration to gay marriage to anti-war activism.
And most recently: Census collection.
Will Obama be able to resist issuing a call to youth arms to marshal help in passing his legislative agenda?
Read the US Department of Education's Menu of Classroom Activities for the day the dear leader will address the students.
Keep in mind folks, this speech is to the students in grades PreK-12th.
Listen to these points:
Why is it important that we listen to the President and other elected officials, like the mayor, senators, members of congress, or the governor? Why is what they say important?
What is the President trying to tell me?
What is the President asking me to do?
What new ideas and actions is the President challenging me to think about?
Students can record important parts of the speech where the President is asking them to do something. Students might think about: What specific job is he asking me to do? Is he asking anything of anyone else? Teachers? Principals? Parents? The American people?
So the President of The United States starts his re-education campaign for the youth of the country. Next will be the government-run summer camps where your kids will be forced to "volunteer". After a couple sessions in these camps you won't recognize your kids. They will come back and demand that you live the way the dear leader wants you to live. Eventually, their loyalty to the dear leader will be much more important than their family ties.
Am I being too paranoid?
So you want to wait and hear what Obama will say?
First of all, the idea that the POTUS decides to address public school students for whatever reason and teachers being given this material is offensive. These kinds of things happen in third-world countries.
Second of all, I bet he will talk about his political agenda. This won't be a speech about "stay in school, study hard and be successful" kind of general speech. He is going to try to sell his agenda on nation's kids so they can go home and work on their parents. He has an all-volunteer army of public school teachers to help in his efforts of brainwashing our kids.
Do you want to wait and see?
Don't risk subjecting your kids to the propaganda. Don't send them to school on Sept 8th, 2009.
If it turns out to be a harmless speech, your children can still participate in the activities.
If I am right, and you hear Hussein trying to sell his radical leftist agenda to the kids, your children will be safe. Call your school and demand that they should stop the activities that follow. I am sure the teacher would not have let President George W Bush give a speech to elementary school children about war in Iraq and how it relates to war on terror. The teachers would not only be protesting the speech but they would come up with their own classroom activities countering the speech.
You can give Hussein the benefit of doubt but if he tries to turn preK-12th graders into activists for his political agenda, we should all be out protesting it, demanding that the activities be stopped and schools invite speakers to give speeches countering what Hussein preached.
