Video: Children sing songs of Obama’s glory

posted at 5:57 pm on September 23, 2009 by Allahpundit

No word on where or when this was shot but it was posted to YouTube just two days before The One’s speech to students, which makes me wonder if it was part of some school’s festivities for the screening. I think parents’ fears about their kids being politically indoctrinated are usually overblown, but I’m open to persuasion by compelling evidence — like, for example, this, or the vid you’re about to see. Getting little kids to croon about how awesome the president is troubles me less than the pop quiz the boss posted, mainly because they’re too young to understand and/or assimilate the agenda they’re singing about (and way too young to vote, natch). But Guy Benson got my atheist ire up when he noted that one of the lines about The One here, heard near the beginning from the kid who’s singing solo, is an adaptation from a hymn about how much Jesus loves the little children. Which makes this an extreme example of what the boss was so worried about vis-a-vis Obama’s speech: Not that he’d say something nutty or overtly political to kids but that some of his more devout cultists in the teaching ranks would take the speech as a license to push the political envelope in the classroom. And here we are.

For some reason I think School children who might have chanted “George Walker Bush…..George Walker Bush” in a public school might have caused heads to explode all over the world.

“Barrack Hussein Obama”…..Oh how cute…the children honor the fuhrer….

the Left’s only defense will be to show video of Jesus camp documentary where they prayed for the President and try to claim this is the same thing, stupidly

Yup, our super scary smart betters on the Left can’t tell the difference between praying for someone and praying to someone.

Too smart for me. Me am teh dum.

Thanks for proving my earlier assumption. Now explain, how is Obama directly responsible for this?

And I never said I approve of it. But this is less a sign of approaching “fascism” than it is a sign of a stupid teacher.

No, I would not give you false hope
In this strange and mournful time
But the Founding Father’s and the American People’s reu-nion
May be only another Obama overreach away
I cant for the life of me
Remember a sadder time
I know some say let it be
But it just wont work out well that way
And the course of a tyrant runs
Over and over again

No, I would not give you false hope
In this strange and mournful time
But the Founding Father’s and the American People’s reu-nion
May be only another Obama overreach away

I just cant believe its so,
And though it seems strange to say
America has never been laid so low
In such a tyrannical way
And the course of a tyrant runs
Over and over again

No, I would not give you false hope
In this strange and mournful time
But the Founding Father’s and the American people’s reu-nion
May be only another Obama overreach away
Oh, but the Founding Father’s and the American people’s reu-nion
May be only another Obama overreach away

katy on September 23, 2009 at 6:29 PM

(Of course, in 1968 the same pissed off all the other teachers in the school by not walking out over the Ocean Hill-Brownsville battle, so there was at least some line she couldn’t cross without hacking off everyone else).

jon1979 on September 23, 2009 at 6:11 PM

I’d never heard of Ocean Hill-Brownsville — until now. After reading about it, I’m absolutely amazed. After watching Sleeper, I had puzzled over Woody Allen’s quote about Albert Shanker “getting a nuclear weapon”, and now it makes sense. Your wobbly teacher (as well as Woody Allen) was all for race-based firing, it seems.

marybel on September 23, 2009 at 6:29 PM

Imagine there’s no Obama lording over us
It’s hard but you can try
No power hungry fascists coming down at us
Above us only free blue sky
Imagine all the American people
Still free today…

Imagine there’s no enemies of the state list
It’s hard but you can try
No control freaks to worry about if they at us get pist
And no fascist DHS Secretaries too
Imagine all free Americans
Living life without them…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday all the sheeple will join us
And free Americans will be as one

Imagine no Imperial Presidendcy
I wonder if you can
No need for Prince Harry or Queen Nancy
A brotherhood of free American woman and man
Imagine all the people
Living without fascism…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday all the sheeple will join us
And free Americans will be as one

/

Look into my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
Ive been everything you want to be
Im the cult of personality
Neon lights, a nobel prize
The mirror speaks, the reflection lies
I sell the things you need to be
Im the smiling face on your t.v.

Im the cult of personality
I exploit you still you love me
I sell the things you need to be
Im the smiling face on your t.v.
Im the cult of personality
I exploit you still you love me
Im the cult of personality

nyx on September 23, 2009 at 6:36 PM

If I could turn the page
In time then I’d rearrange
Just a day or two
Close my, close my, close my eyes

But I couldn’t find a way
So I’ll settle for one day
To belive in you
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can’t disguise
(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)
Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies

Although I’m not making plans
I hope that you understand
There’s a reason why
Close your, close your, close your eyes

No more broken hearts
We’re better off apart
Let’s give it a try
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can’t disguise
(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)
Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies

I did. I raised both my kids by myself from the time my daughter was 3 months old. I homeschooled them up to high school. After which they were bulletproof. Neither of my kids were the least bit timid about calling their teachers out when they went off track and my son made his science teacher retract a lot of information that he was able to prove was wrong. They would laugh at attempts to indoctrinate AND KNEW IT FOR WHAT IT WAS.

Do it. There is no good excuse not to.

If you really want to wade into the weeds, the minutia of it, in pin-point terms the Obama agenda is called Syndicalism.

Someone who sees a problem with with a reference to Jesus Christ, and does not see the disgusting, blasphemous problem that Obama is compared to Him in any way, shape or form.

Says the conservative posting on a conservative website to a liberal posting on a conservative website…

My point is certified by the speed of your response, you did not follow the link to the substance of my statement did you.

Game. Set. Match!

Archimedes on September 23, 2009 at 7:10 PM

Now crr6, don’t you think in your black heart, there is any similarity between socialism and fascism?
: )

nyx on September 23, 2009 at 7:06 PM

There is no real similarity between current center-left American liberalism, and fascism, no. Fascism is a serious term. You do a disservice to those who suffered under it when you trivialize the term by using it so carelessly. Frankly, if you were living in a fascist state, you wouldn’t be able to post on this forum. You’re no worse than the “Bush is a fascist” morons that preceded you.

Obama is our new King. Dude!

That should read “no better”.

crr6 on September 23, 2009 at 7:17 PM

Holy crap, you really demonstrate lack of info.

FYI, seeing as yoy are too intellectually lazy…

The right has opposed Obama and the left has supported him, on the mistaken belief that Obama was a socialist. I have hesitated to call it as I see it for fear of being labeled a “paranoid,” but. Well now the cat is out of the bag, and media arms of both the right and left are now describing Obama’s authoritarian corporatist proclivities as Fascism. Mussolini described Fascism as, “Everything in the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State”. Subsuming all private endeavors as business of the state’s, and the state’s existence is the sole duty of the individual. Not entirely differing from Obama except that in Obama’s case, he seems to despise the particular state he wishes to rule.

The left has disparaged conservatives as Fascists mistakenly for the last 50 years or so. And while Fritzsche describes Fascism as right-wing populism, originally the word in Italian political history stretches back to the 1890s in the form of fasci, which were radical leftist political factions that proliferated in the decades before World War I. The adoption of this term by the Fascist Party reflected the previous involvement of a number of them in radical left politics. But in practice Mussolini, who we now most associate with fascism, held labor in a subservient position to the corporation. As we can now see with labor’s new prominence , that is not presently the case. So with labor now dominant and the global governance philosophy of the left marginalizing national sovereignty, one might reasonably say that Syndicalism might be a more accurate description of how the Obama administration is conducting itself.

Syndicalism, for those not familiar, is one member of the family of pre-arranged economies, and is the off-spring born of Socialism and Communism if you like. Syndicalism relies on trade unions as the basis of social structure, it is explained by wordiq.com as “A model syndicalist community is as follows. The local unit, the syndicat, would communicate with other syndicats through the bourse de travail (labour exchange). The bourse would handle management and the transfer of commodities.” Sounds strikingly similar to how Obama and the Democrats want to set up a “Health Care Exchange,” does it not?

Syndicalism has a few alterations from the loins of which it emerged. Both Socialism and Communism for instance are centered on the Nation-State as the primary entity shaping policies, where Syndicalism revolves around extra-national trade groups.

Mark Twain stated that “History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme” So it might be reasonable to say the Obama model borrows heavily (pun intended) from the Alinsky plan organizationally, a Communist/Socialist vehicle to attain power. Obama has since wielded a somewhat inverted Fascistic marriage of Government, Labor & Industry since coming into office. Where this assumes the shape of Syndicalism is in his alliances with International Trade Unions and Multi-National Corporations as his power base, to the detriment of the Nation State. And it is further evidenced in his selection a vast array of internationalists, like Cass Sunstien and Susan Powers in his staff and ever growing multitude of Czars. Perhaps most starkly depicting his global redistribution aims, is his only bill authored as a U.S. senator, the Global Poverty Act (S.2433) which would allow the U.N. to set foreign assistance levels to come out of American coffers. In effect, making the U.S. Treasury the de facto slush-fund of U.N. largesse

It is all too easy to get caught up in the semantics of all the various “isms.” What is crystal clear, is their commonality of using collectivist priorities in an effort top stamp out any vestige of individualism. And thus the crux of western intellectual thought since the Enlightenment

Something ACORN is going to regret. Breitbart been salivating for them to go after him.

We’re going to find out a lot more dirt if this goes to trial.

Bring it on.

fogw on September 23, 2009 at 7:09 PM

They are running a bluff as their house of cards falls down around them. This suit will disappear as soon as the first motion for discovery is filed by the defense.

ACORN is probably running some pro bono lawyers past what ever first-stringers Breitbart has had standing by, waiting to get in the game.

This should be a really good show.

LOL. The hilarious thing about you loons is you think the reason people disagree with you is because we haven’t been exposed to your lunacy. We have. We still think you’re stupid.

Why don’t you read this???? If you don’t you’re a coward. Go ahead, emerge from your cocoon. I dare you.

I agree actually, I think Carter for example crossed a line. Now will you concede my point?

crr6 on September 23, 2009 at 7:24 PM

Now explain, how is Obama directly responsible for this?

ObamaCRATS – his disciples and your allies – are responsible for fostering an atmosphere of collectivism and leftwing-friendly political indoctrination in our government-run schools.

Good Lt on September 23, 2009 at 7:25 PM

We still think you’re stupid.

The people executing this disgusting display you saw on the video are liberal Democrats who voted for Obama.

People like you.
