The Attempted Socialization of America: Redux

In reference to my post:
President to address school students September 8

I just spoke to the Director of Information for the Garland TX Independent School District and they have made a decision regarding the Obama speech on Tuesday the 8th.

Garland ISD will NOT *stream* the speech to their classrooms, auditoriums or other gatherings. No one is going to be forced to watch this against their will, and I applaud this action.

What they ARE going to do is this, they will record the speech, link it on the Garland ISD site and it can be viewed by those that wish to see it. Anyone wishing to see the outline of the Obama speech can pull it up here: President to address school students September 8 and the message is quite different for PreK -6 and the 7-12 crowd is quite different. Read it for yourself!

My wife is on the Mesquite TX ISD mailing list and this is an exact copy of their email message:

President Obama’s Address to Students

On Sept. 8, President Obama is scheduled to speak to school children across the United States through a webcast message produced in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Education. It is Mesquite ISD’s understanding that the President’s message will emphasize the value of education and the importance of working hard in school to succeed.

The timing of the live broadcast does not coincide with class schedules and will occur during many lunch periods. Therefore, Mesquite ISD will post a link to the message on its district website where parents may view the video themselves. After viewing the message online, if parents have a concern about their child watching it as part of a future classroom activity, they are encouraged to send a written statement to their school principal.

We hope parents will take this opportunity to have conversations with their children about the importance of working hard in school, setting goals and staying focused on their education. Mesquite ISD’s FutureQuest and MyFuture initiatives encourage students to plan for study beyond high school, and parents are important partners in these efforts.

This seems to be the response from most of the school districts in MY area. Texas is a very Conservative state, I know not all schools will respond this way, but they should.

Socialist indoctrination is socialist indoctrination, no matter HOW it happens.

I hope you ALL are hammering your school districts and school boards on this matter, it is THAT important!

As you get a response from your school board, good or bad, please post that response in comments for ALL to see. It’s going to be interesting to see how our school administrators fall in on this one. And it may be indicative if a need to revamp our school boards in some cases!

    In my area, Obamaland (Chicago), they are practically drooling over this. But I heard many parents are planning to keep the kids out of school that day and on 9/11. There just might be a new school board next year.

    I have already instructed my children’s teachers they are to be excluded from it if they do participate.

    I certainly wouldn’t let my kid go to school on September 8th. Those liberals think they can teach my kid better than I can. NO! This is wrong and we should not tolerate this any longer! The dictator Obama will not indoctrinate my kid with his liberal “science”. If my kid wants to learn what’s right, he can learn what’s right from me!

    Texas Fred, I’m a long time reader and just now commenting. I want your advice on what to do with my kid?

    Texas Fred, I’m a long time reader and just now commenting. I want your advice on what to do with my kid?

    Not knowing where you live and what the reaction of your local school board is, I am afraid I am not able to offer too much in the way of an opinion… I am pretty sure that after reading your comment, you’ll decide to do the right thing though!

    Thank God my kids are grown, if they weren’t, and if this BS was going to be forced upon them, I would keep my kids home that day and DAMN the absenteeism…

    I know some parents’ kids could not miss one more day of class or they would be expelled from school.

    They are thinking about forgoing their education because they can’t have them learning in a country as backwards as this. I am torn whether or not to agree with them.

    Good Lord!!!
    I volunteer at my daughters elementary on Tuesdays and Thursdays and the front office was a Wild Zone.

    They will NOT be doing anything at my 4th graders school on the 8th. I’m so glad other parents feathers are ruffled.
    When notifying your childrens school please remember that the Secretary behind the desk is not a punching bag. She has nothing to do with the Schools Schedule. Contact the Superintendent with any concerns. I felt so sorry for the lady at the front desk this morning, thankfully the Principle and Vice Principle took turns listening to parents.
    I will find out tomorrow if my daughters Jr. High will be canceling Dumbo’s attempt at brainwashing. Rumor has it….. None of the schools in our school district are allowing him into the schools. We’ll see. Thank God I live in Texas. We have to stop this for all our little innocent Americans though. It isn’t their fault that these idiots are in office.

    Here’s what will Obama will read from his Teleprompter to the American kids.

    Obama- Students take out a piece of paper and pencil, now list how many guns are in your house. You will receive a piece of gum for each gun.

    Students-O boy!!!! I love gum!!!!

    Obama- List how many bibles are in your house. You will receive a Prayer Rug if you are honest. May later be used at the Mosque of your choice!!

    Student- What in the hell is a Prayer Rug? I think he meant Flying Rug.

    Obama- Students list all American Flags that are posted on the outside of your house. We need them for my parade that will be all about ME your new Daddy.

    Student- huh?

    haha, I could go on and on and on……….

  9. comment number 9 by: HoosierArmyMom

    Most are saying what Obama has to say will be quite watered down, it’s the “preplanned classwork” in the hands of mostly liberal leaning teachers that will be the thing to fear.

    If I had a school aged child who could not miss school, I would take the day off, armed with my copy of the Declaration and the Constitution, and I would sit with him through the entire program and ANYTHING that I thought was BS, would be pointed out on the spot and questioned whether the teacher liked it or not. It is your right as a parent to be involved. Also take a tape recorder so if the teacher gets out of line or denies you your rights, you can levy a lawsuit. That is the only way to put the leftistas in their place and introduce them to real American rights according to the Constitution. JMHO.

    Mobile County schools WILL be allowed to show the speech at the discretion of the school’s principal. There will be “allowances” made for students who do not wish to see the speech or whose parents have said that their child will not receive the indoctrination - exactly what these allowances are I could not find out. The good folks at the County offices hung up on The Bull after giving just this little info.

    Looks like my four kids that are still in school get a four day weekend instead of a three day!

    Bull out!

  11. comment number 11 by: hardheadedtexan

    My daughters Jr. High will not be participating on Sept 8th, however, they will place a link on the district website in case families want to view the speech. Obama and his little Mind Control can kiss it. I can’t imagine anyone WANTING to watch Dumbo. But then again, I can’t believe anyone voted for this Chicago Dips**t.

    I think Moore, Oklahoma schools have the right approach to hussein fuckwadi’s smooth tongued attempt to brainwash the little ones. All the other schools should follow suit. A big kudos for Moore, Oklahoma.

    Moore Public Schools

  13. comment number 13 by: TexasFred

    No School September 8th
    September 8th is a scheduled Site Improvement Day for the Moore Public Schools. As referenced on our school calendar, school is not in session on this date. The district has been advised that President Obama will deliver an address directly to school children on the importance of education. Parents who wish to view the speech with their children may consult the U.S. Education Department’s website.

    Moore Public Schools

    The right idea?? Kudos?? I think this was purely coincidental…

    Fred, Coincidental?……………..not,ha

    School Districts in Six States to Refrain from Showing Presidential Address Next Week

  15. comment number 15 by: TexasFred

    Connie.. Re-read this part, very closely… September 8th is a scheduled Site Improvement Day for the Moore Public Schools. As referenced on our school calendar, school is not in session on this date.

    Yes, in this case, it IS a coincidence, a good one, but a coincidence none the less… This outage was, as I understand it, already planned BEFORE the Obama BS…

  16. comment number 16 by: hardheadedtexan

    Fred you are right.
    I was just talking to a friend and we were discussing how some of the school districts are being very polite on the reasoning behind Canceling Obama’s brainwashing. It would be nice to hear “The Parents are Disgusted at Obama’s plan to Mind Control our children, therefore, we are canceling Obama’s Indoctrination.” I know it isn’t PC, but it would be nice to read.

  17. comment number 17 by: TexasFred

    Being specific is invaluable… I have, on 2 occasions since I started blogging 5 years ago, had to make a retraction, this is NOT one of them…

    I investigate, I do research and I post only facts and unvarnished truth… If you see an error in my posting or comments, it will be because there was an error in the source that was used as a reference…

    The Chinese flag will be flown on the White House Lawn to celebrate the visit of officials, and the anniversary of the creation of the People’s Republic of China. It never stops.

  20. comment number 20 by: TexasFred

    Hey AnnPW… Here’s a suggestion for you, if you don’t like what you read here, don’t visit here… Damn, libbers are SO stupid…

    Oh yeah, just so you know, I won’t return a link to your blog either, MY readers don’t need to be exposed to your touchy-feely, lets all celebrate being queers and have an abortion bullshit either…

    Good for those opposing. I’ve told ALL my friends in Nevada - If it were MY kids, and they weren’t grown already - I’d keep ‘em HOME for the day - F that! NO MATTER what “he” says NOW as opposed to the original post.

    I’ve talked to parents that told me they got “permission slips” they had to sign in order for the video to be allowed??? I wouldn’t sign one!

    Call ‘em in sick with Swine Flu!!!
