Can “Obama Youth” Be far Behind?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
"Give me the children, I will give you a nation." "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 (1939)
I, along with a few million other parents and grandparents, are troubled by Obama’s speech to the school kids tomorrow.
It is a known fact that if you can reach the kids with your propaganda you can mold their malleable minds into practically any kind of adult you want. They are young, they are impressionable, and frankly, they are not very smart -- not YET, at least. Obama’s speech to the students of America smacks of a propaganda machine in high gear. It is all a part of the “Obama Cult Machine”.
The parents in my state are raising a considerable amount of “Cain.” They don’t like it. As a grandparent, I don’t like it, either. Whether Obama’s minions deny it, or not, it IS an indoctrination speech. The very nature of it’s “setting” renders it that.
Here in North Carolina, parents are up in arms about it. There will be many kids staying home from school, entirely, tomorrow, and, in my opinion, that is the correct thing for parents to do. A number of schools have declared their intention of recording Obama’s speech and playing it back at a later time. The question, then, is -- will parents be alerted in time to get their kids out of school for that day? I don’t have the answer to that question but I have my suspicions.
Many parents in my state have been busy over the past few days attempting to ascertain whether or not their children’s school will be allowing Obama’s speech in their school -- and when. It has been akin to hitting a brick wall. It seems as if each school district has a different answer to the question. Frankly, none of them are satisfactory.
Look, anyway you parse it; Obama’s speech to the student’s smacks of an Orwellian tactic and it is a rotten idea. For a President who is said to have the creame de la creame of intellects around him, this has to be the dumbest idea to come out of the White House in a while. There has been so much objection raised by parents that reports now say the speech has been rewritten and plans to televise Obama’s speech have been dropped and instead it will be streamed live on the Internet at the Whitehouse website. That means anyone can watch and listen to Obama’s golden oratory, including Homeschoolers. How thoughtful -- what? Somehow, I doubt many homeschoolers will be allowing their students to listen to the indoctrination speech. Isn’t this sort of thing one of the reasons those same homeschoolers pulled their children out of the government school systems in the first place?
If there was even the slightest doubt in your mind that the public school system in American is now the “Government school system,” then these antics, by the Obama Regime, should remove all doubt.
This is the sort of thing one expects in a socialist society. It is not the sort of thing one expects in a free republic. But, as we have been warning, even before the election in 2008, the socialists now in charge in Washington are disassembling the democratic representative republican form of government in America.
If I still had school age children they would be at home tomorrow. They would certainly not be in school where they will be exposed to socialist propaganda as espoused by the nation’s leading socialist, the President of the US, Obama.
As the President's popularity wanes and his standings in the polls drop like a stone, it is time for conservatives across the nation to turn up the heat. The elections of 2010 are not that far away. We must make every effort to defeat as many of the socialists in the Congress as we can and increase the clout of conservatism in the national legislature. We must return the US to its former status as a democratic representative republic.
Conservatives must stay alert. This is only the beginning. There are still approximately 3-1/2 years of the Obama Regime left. That is plenty of time for all sorts of leftist/socialist mischief. That is a sobering thought – is it not?
