Imposter in Chief's School Propaganda


pResident Obama is scheduled to make a nationwide speech in the K -12 classrooms of the Public School indoctrination centers of the nation on September 8, 2009 at 12 noon Eastern Time.

The stated purpose of the speech is to stress the importance of getting a good education and working hard at one's studies.

Given the "Teaching Guidelines" accompanying the event, I find it to be a grand lesson in Propaganda.

“Write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the President.” ??? Just WHAT is there a nine year old is supposed to be ABLE to do to be able to do to "help the President?!?" Maybe Obama wasn't listening when he was in the 5th grade in Jakarta?

Will Obama interject Partisan politics into his message to our young skulls full of mush? I don't know, and in point of fact, I don't care if he doesn't. The EVENT itself is enough to trigger an alarm in the back of my admittedly politically suspicious mind. The message propounded, whatever it's content, isn't the point of the exercise; as a commenter at the Rott pointed out, the whole purpose behind this activity is BRANDING. The powers that be are attempting to associate Obama with the "good product". Obama becomes associated with the message of "study hard" and "do what is good for the Country".
Anyone trying to speak against this cynical ploy will be shouted down as being "against a good message". The trouble I have is with the underlying message that "Obama is the Good Leader", after all, all he wants is "for me to work hard and do well in school". Kim Ill Jong couldn't do a better job at indoctrination into a cult of personality.

If I had any readers, I'm sure of the first charge that would be levied against me: "I'm against this because I'm anti-Obama". And then will come the usual boilerplate talking points of "Racist", "Hate-monger", etc,etc ad nauseum.
For those who are Obamanoids, I'll make it easy to report my attitude:

It's up to PARENTS to instill a love of learning in their children, not the POTUS. I'm sure that had President Bush attempted to try a stunt like this, he would have been (and rightly so!) excoriated by the Left as being Hitlarian in the audacity of his cynical propaganda. (come to think of it, wasn't President Bush pilloried by the left because he was in a classroom, reading a book to the kids on 9/11/01, and he didn't jump right up and scare the children when he learned of the attack on the Twin Towers ?).

Look at this even in the light of this quote and ask yourself if there is truly nothing to fear in this blatant attempt to BRAND Obama:

"When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side," I calmly say, "Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community." -- Adolph Hitler

"Those that don't know history are doomed to repeat it"

UPDATE: seems the White House has bowed to public opinion (not to mention the law) and pulled it's "snitch line" at Flag, and it was so much fun continually reporting myself as an Enemy of the ObamaState....

Did'nt Dad leave school because of this as a kid? Now would be a great time to teach the holocaust as we were taught,not as it is taught now.

Huh. I suppose our children should remain as educated as Bush left them. No child left behind, correct? Based on your incorrect usage of punctuation (not to mention grammar), one could surmise that Bush's 'educational campaign was a success.

Perhaps this was satirical? (Don't worry. You may find this three-syllable word in the dictionary. It is correctly spelled for your convenience). If it WAS meant as a spoof, then bravo! If not, well, my hope is, like many sad, hurt McCain/Pallin voters, you will fade into obscurity. Wait. You're already there.
