Well, they were right, all those folks who said President Obama's education speech would be an exercise in mass indoctrination if not downright mass hypnosis of our nation's children. They warned us that this was step one in creating legions of liberal zombies -- Ozomabies -- ready to do the nefarious bidding of our radical chief executive, be it rolling grandma's wheelchair to the senior extermination center, or doing community organizing.
What's that? You didn't hear any of that in the president's speech today? Well, of course he wasn't going to come right out and be specific about how he would turn his innocent listeners into extras from Children of the Corn VII: The Liberal Agenda. He said it all in code. Let's break down a few of these so-called "harmless" sentences from this so-called "bland and inoffensive speech," and see just how far down the road we are tonight to the creation of millions of new little Democrats.
--"How is everybody doing today?" (Applause.)
Right off the bat, a call/response drill aimed at forming mindless obedience to The Leader. He says, "How is everybody doing today?" they applaud. Next speech he says, "Let's raise the national debt some more," they say "How high?"
--"When I was young, my family lived overseas. I lived in Indonesia for a few years."
Here's what he was really telling those children: "When I was born, my family lived overseas." Admitting the birthers were right, and taunting them in front of our precious youngsters. Has the man no shame?
--"... No matter what you want to do with your life, I guarantee that you'll need an education to do it. You want to be a doctor, or a teacher, or a police officer? You want to be a nurse or an architect, a lawyer or a member of our military?"
So what happened to that promise of not having anything about health care reform in the speech? The President of the United States names seven professions, and two of them are in the health care field. And "lawyer" was another one! If that's not a push for socialized medicine and gigantic income-redistributing judgments against America's great corporations, I don't know what is.
--"You'll need the insights and critical-thinking skills you gain in history and social studies to fight poverty and homelessness, crime and discrimination, and make our nation more fair and more free."
Would that be a "war" on poverty our president is getting ready to start? Listen, kids, we adults have seen that movie already, and all we can say is, hide your piggy banks because the tax man going to be turning it over to the welfare man.
--"So today, I want to ask all of you, what's your contribution going to be?"
Fortunately, wise leaders in certain school districts saw through the charade, and didn't show it to their students. Thank God, they're safe. But so many others aren't. Tonight, parents, if your child was forced to watch this propaganda, hold them very, very closely and tell them everything is going to be okay. And keep a close eye on them in the days ahead. Especially if you live near a corn field.
