First we see numerous evidence of schools indoctrinating children to love President Obama and his political policies, now the children are being USED for propaganda. CNN aired children singing a very politically driven song promoting Obamacare agenda. Talk about making your stomach turn! It makes me sick how kids are being manipulated to push government run health care.

I am proud of the response we have received in the recent weeks from the government. We, those of a conservative mind set, have been speaking out and making it well known what we will and will not stand for recently. And it seems to have had some effect. At least on the topics of Van Jones’ resignation and the presidential school speech. Having visited the www.ed.gov website frequently in the past weeks I had noticed the wording of the activities, questions, and the speech itself changed numerous times. This had caused great concern among conservative parents that there maybe indoctrination included in the speech given to the school children by our President. After all, with the brief but controversial past of President Obama and his administration it is our right to question what would possibly be next.

Of course, there had to be a tidbit about the environment in there as all public education does, as Obama said, “You’ll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to cure diseases like cancer and AIDS, and to develop new energy technologies and protect our environment.” And naturally to keep it politically correct, we have to throw in some statements about discrimination and fairness. But all in all, the revised and finished product was one in which I do not have a problem. In fact, I have a favorite quote from the speech. It is, “if you quit on school — you’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country.”

I also liked how he ended it with “God bless you. God bless America.” We all know that if a republican president had said those words the liberals would be all over it screaming “separation between church and state.” But that wouldn’t be good for supporting their choice in presidency, so we won’t be hearing any of that this time. Unlike when President George H.W. Bush gave his school speech and the democrats went crazy with investigations, hearings, accusations, and being denounced by the National Education Association itself.  Yes, we have heard, “You won’t be saying this if it was a republican president.” No, probably not so much, but you (the left) would. Check out this article from The Washington Examiner, When Bush Spoke To Students, Democrats investigated, held hearings, it explains the great lengths the opposition went to denounce President George H.W. Bush’s very similar speech.

I think we can take this two ways. One, is what I mentioned earlier, a victory in having shaped the change in what could have quite possibly been indoctrination (due to the many changes to the curriculum and speech I think it may have been). The second, is to watch for possible future speeches to the youth that may have indoctrination. We can’t let our guard down if there is a second or third speech. We must always be informed as to what is being presented to our children.

As you have probably heard, on September 8, President Barack Obama will become the first President of the United States of America to ever address all the schools of the nation. I for one would not have a problem with this if it was purely to tell them to do well in school, focus on their studies, and other academic related content. However, the outline in the event related guides developed by the US Department of Education suggests otherwise. In fact, it suggests the horrifying possibility of youth indoctrination by presenting questions as quoted from the www.ed.gov website:

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?

And that is just a sample few, there are also follow up questions that the teachers are to ask the students which is detailed in the report done by Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin referenced below. It is also stated in the letter to the principles of the schools that children over the age of 13 are encouraged to make their own videos and send them in for prizes. I am guessing this would be over more than just education. I hope I am wrong, but it doesn’t sound like it. The government education website has posted what is supposed to be used as questions and activities during this event here http://www.ed.gov/index.jhtm. Please be informed of what your child will be hearing at school.

There is quite an up rise, and rightfully so, among parents who have heard about President Obama’s speech. Many are just plain outraged. There are those that are going to have their children stay home or elsewhere to avoid them being exposed to the possible political curriculum and some schools are cooperating. The website www.chron.com reports, “The Houston Independent School District has directed principals to give parents a heads-up if they are planning lessons around President Obama’s speech so parents can opt out their children. Other districts said they would excuse students, though not all plan to send home notes in advance.” If you haven’t already, I would check with the school district to see what you options are if you are opposed to your child viewing this event. Because, as  www.chron.com said, not all the schools are sending out notes in advance. Tell your friends and family too, they may be completely unaware of the situation. The problem with this broadcast is the potential that our children can be subjected to possible political ideology against our beliefs completely unchallenged or if they do stand up for their beliefs, it presents the possibility of them facing ridicule from friends and school faculty without support. For now, we will have to wait and see what September the 8th brings our youth’s way while doing what we can to protect them from the possibility of indoctrination.
