Obama Youth Indoctrination

I think this is extraordinary and frightening, so I'm bringing it back up to the top.

Let me be clear, there is not really anything I find objectionable in the words. The problem here is the exaltation of Obama to an almost god-like quality; a mere mortal about whom we chant and sing.

In the history of America, we have not every had children singing songs about any of our leaders, be they Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, or Martin Luther King.

Why are these children being encouraged to sing/rap about "Barack Hussein Obama"?

From Astute Bloggers:

From the video: This was filmed around June 19, 2009 at the B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, NJ.

Barack Hussein Obama
He said that all must lend a hand [?]
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said we must be clear today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said Red, Yellow, Black or White
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama

segue to

Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all [do? doth??] say "hooray!"
Hooray Mr. President! You're number one!
The first Black American to lead this great na-TION!
Hooray, Mr. President something-something-some
A-something-something-something-some economy is number one again!
Hooray Mr. President, we're really proud of you!
And the same for all Americans [in?] the great Red White and Blue!
So something Mr. President we all just something-some,
So here's a hearty hip-hooray a-something-something-some!
Hip, hip hooray! (3x)

Of course, we've seen this sort of thing before.

More... Now there are Dear Leader propaganda quizzes for your child, too.

Back in 2004, another New Jersey school teacher was thrown out because she included a photo of President Bush in the classroom.

"A New Jersey middle school teacher was ordered to leave her school in early October for refusing an order to remove a photo of President George W. Bush from her classroom display of photos of various U.S. presidents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. She was subsequently reassigned to a different school.
It all started at a parents' night when a mother complained about the picture. Some parents then e-mailed school officials claiming that the teacher had suppressed the free speech of her students — with some questioning why she liked George Bush even though "he's killed people."
The Monmouth Junction school principal and assistant principal decided that either the photo or the teacher had to go, accusing her of "partisanship," "hatred" and "inflammatory ways," the teacher, Shiba Pillai-Diaz, told WABC Radio. She pleads guilty to admiring President Bush but denies discussing politics in the classroom. "I never once said 'I am a Republican' or 'I support the president,'" she maintained. (Home News Tribune, 10-3-04)
Sen. Jon Corzine (D-NJ) said school officials had gone overboard. "I don't see why [a picture] of the President of the United States can't be displayed," he told WABC Radio, pledging to assist the teacher if she contacts his office. (10-3-04)
Pillai-Diaz said she plans to post the picture of the president in her new classroom. (Associated Press, 10-8-04) "
