Obamaphobes urging parents to keep their kids home from school next Tuesday


 Just when you think the wingnuts can’t get any nuttier, they prove you wrong.

 This time, the fuss among the booboisie is over plans for President Obama to directly address the nation’s students by way of television next Tuesday on the importance of education. (Details HERE.)

 Conservative Web sites and blogs suddenly are AFLAME WITH OUTRAGE over the very idea of the president invading the classrooms of America. They say it’s akin to Chinese communism, Hitlerism and worse.

 Never mind that the first President Bush SIMILARLY ADDRESSED the nation’s students in 1989 on the importance of staying away from drugs and again in 1991 “to promote students’ and parents’ awareness of the educational challenge we face.”

 But that was then, and this is now. Now we have wingnuts running loose all over the place.



  1. Wow…for once I’m totally against the Beck and Malkin on this one. Obama is our President. Having him directly talk to our children is a good thing. He’s not going to say anything to brainwash them. This is truly embarrassing.

  2. Mr. Funfsinn

    You would have been freaking out if Bush had talked about the importance of No Child Left Behind. If he mentioned the military you would have demanded Congressional hearings. I actually like the idea of speaking to America’s students. However, I would prefer that they actually have the chance to ask the President questions.

  3. Mr. Funfsinn and gowader – Seriously, what in the world do you really think that Obama is going to say that is going to be so bad?

    Obama is great speaker, and from what I can tell, is a very good father. Also having an African-American as our President is a positive role-model for our youth.

    Yes, his liberal policies totally suck, but its not like he’s going to be quoting Marxist quotes to kids. I’m sure he’ll do a fine job.

  4. My kids are now out of public schools, but my experience is that 90% of the teachers are spokespersons for left wing thinking. If parents do not know this, they are not involved in their child’s schooling. Most kids won’t hear anything from Teleprompter Man that they do not get from their teachers every day.

  5. Art, as usual, is again way behind the curve. He’s still riding that silly Teleprompter meme, blissfully unaware that all presidents use Teleprompters.

    Check this, Artie boy:

  6. No, gowader, I haven’t done drugs since my college days….and even then only on a handful of occasions.

    Obama is a good speaker, just like Clinton was also a good speaker. Meaning they are good orators. Both are 10 times better speakers than Bush. (But I agree more with Bush’s agenda than either of those two)

    Seriously, I would rather have our kids listen to Obama than people like Kayne West or Eminem or Rosie O’Donnell. He worked hard to become President.

    Obama isn’t going to try and shove socialized health care down our kids throats, he’s not going to tell our kids to encourage their parents get behind union card check. He might say something about global warming, but that’s really not so bad. There is nothing wrong encouraging youth to become environmentally conscious. And he’s not going to push cap and trade.

    Again, these are CHILDREN. Obama will probably just mention stuff like respecting one another and to work hard in school.

    On a side note, I see Jesse Jackson spoke at Jefferson High School recently. The rrstar editorial staff seems to think that we don’t need him and that Rockford needs to solve problems on their own. I thinks that’s hogwash. If anything, Jesse’s presence might have prevented some riots around here. I’m glad he came.

    Again, I don’t care for Jesse’s liberal policies, but he wasn’t here to bash Reaganomics or say we should all bow to Obama. He was just here to promote peace, brotherhood, community togetherness, and understanding. All good things. Rockford needs to reach out MORE, not less.

    Pity makes suffering contagious,”[citation needed] he says in The Antichrist, meaning that it is important for the pitier not to allow him/herself to feel superior to the pitied, lest such a power imbalance result in the pitied retaliating against the help being offered.

  8. “…I have yet to see him [Obama] practice his so called Christian faith.”
    You must get your expectations for how a Christian politician should act out his/her faith (or lack of it) from right-wing hypocrites who make big public shows of their piety.
    ?And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (Matthew 6:1-6 NIV)

    snuss blathers: “Note that the children are only to be given Obama’s “vision” of America, with no alternate views allowed. Sounds like indoctrination to me.”

    snuss, we all know you’re a few fries short of a whole Happy Meal, but where exactly in the PDF you link to does it specifically mention President Obama’s “vision for America”? Even a Fox Nation zombie can deduce that this is the same script used year after year, with only the names and dates changed as appropriate.

    And I’m willing to bet that no “alternate views” were allowed when similar speeches to school kids were given by Reagan and both Bushes. If you have evidence to the contrary, please provide and I will promptly apologize.

    Oh, one more thing, snuss: Did you happen to call it “indoctrination” 6 1/2 years ago when you and your fellow Cons fell hook, line, and sinker for your party’s “vision” for Iraq? You know, the one about women and children dancing in the streets, throwing flowers at the troops, and erecting statues of Bush throughout the country?

  10. Orlando you need help!!

    I wonder if they will be required to wear their brown shirts that day?

  12. carpentr85,
    YOU DO?!? You actually spend time wondering if the teachers and principals are going to tell the students they must wear brown shirts that day because they are going to be watching and listening to the president on television? How much time do you spend wondering things like that? Does such thoughts interfere very much with your ability to function?

    More conservative movement lies. Politifact did an article of this.
    You can also keep track of Obama’s campaign promises vs. results at the same site.

    Dave, look the word sarcasm up in the dictionary, that is if you have one you mental case.

  15. carpentr85,
    I’m the mental case?!? The president, who is a former college professor, is going is going to give a speech to the nation’s school children about working hard in school and having educational goals and that suggests fascism to you?!? Now that is truly deranged! You and no one else that I know of ever even thought such a thing about any previous president, many of whom gave similar speeches. What is different about this president that causes you to ascribe such sinister motives to goals to him?
