Shocker: Kids taught to sing Obama's praises

School children in New Jersey have been taught to both chant and sing praises to President Obama, with a YouTube video revealing them singing, “Mr. President, We Honor You Today” to the tune of the “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

The children also are seen being taught the chant: “Barack Hussein Obama.”

Columnist Michelle Malkin identified the children as students at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington Township, N.J.

The children are lined up in front of a stage, and an adult is teaching them the chant:

Uhm, uhm, uhm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said all should lend a hand to make the country strong again
Uhm, uhm, uhm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said we must be fair today, equal work means equal pay
Uhm, uhm, uhm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said take a stand, make sure everyone gets a chance
Uhm, uhm, uhm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said red, yellow, black and white, all are equal in his sight
Uhm, uhm, uhm, Barack Hussein Obama
YEAH. Barack Hussein Obama

“OK, now let’s do the song,” says the adult leader.

The lyrics appear to include:

Hello Mr. President, We honor you today
For all your great accomplishments, we all do say hooray
Hooray, Mr. President you are No. 1
The first black American to lead this nation

Malkin said the video originally was posted in June by YouTube user “brandnuwords,” who now has removed it.

It later was reposted by other YouTube users.

Malkin identified “brandnuwords” as Charisse Carney-Nunes, a senior vice president of The Jamestown Project, who is described as “the award-winning author of the children’s books ‘I Am Barack Obama.’”

Her biography identifies her as a graduate of Harvard “where she was a schoolmate of President Obama.”

Malkin said she’s received no response to her inquiries to the school about whether Carney-Nunes had permission to use the children in the video.

“The Obama school song video that she taped,” Malkin wrote, “shows her book featured on an easel next to the children hailing Dear Leader. She promotes her book as a tool that ‘allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, Who will change the world? Ultimately, he realizes that he will.’

“Coming to a classroom near you?” Malkin wondered.

Such adulation of Obama is not new, even among school children. During the campaign, a video appeared showing a drill team of students marching to Obama’s praise, chanting “Alpha, Omega.”
