Indoctrination of Our Children

I know, I was going to post a followup to assault on capitalism yesterday.  I may still write it, but I was shocked yesterday to see something in the news and I just could not ignore it.  I am a parent, with a 10-year-old child in school.  I saw a video yesterday that made my blood run cold.  Notice that about 1:38 they launch into a rousing song, the Battle Hymn of The Republic…but, wait a minute.  The lyrics are all about how great Obama is!  THE BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC bastardized into a song about how great a president is!  Is this what our tax dollars are going to?  Aren’t our kids supposed to be actually learning something?  If the one line “We are all equal in his sight” doesn’t just make you want to chew the upholstery off your couch then I don’t know what will.  I am not Christian, but I am religious, and this sounds a little bit too much like worship to me.

Top this one off with a video that has been shown in over 7000 schools around the country.  It is called ‘The Story of Stuff’.  Yeah I know, looks like a very good child friendly piece about conservation and the green movement.  Did you watch it close enough?  Does it sound a lot like an attack on Capitalism?  Not only is it an attack on Capitalism, and propaganda about how bad America is, but in many places it is factually wrong.  Check out the response video.

This stuff is scary for a parent.  Take into account President Obama’s buddy Hugo Chavez now openly admitting to indoctrinating kids in Venezuela and it becomes even more terrifying.
