Keep your child from school today

By Joseph Farah

It’s not safe to send your child to public school today.

Chances are good the indoctrination level will go from Defcon 2 to Defcon 1.

Barack Obama has already stolen your money. Today he attempts to steal the minds of your children.

In fact, as of today, it may be too late.

It seems the government-education establishment has been priming the pump for the day when Obama addresses a captive audience of children attending public schools across America – by television and via the Internet.

It’s all the work of a Cabinet-level agency that has no constitutional business even existing. But, then again, Obama has demonstrated his complete contempt for the Constitution in so many ways – including the dismissal of all calls for establishing his eligibility for office.

Long before most parents got wind of this new form of government-mandated political child abuse, teachers were already preparing for the big day.

“From Crayons to Condoms” lays out myriad reasons America’s government schools have failed our children

Here are some of the proposed lesson plans offered by the Department of Education:

  • “Teachers can build background knowledge about the President of the United States and his speech by reading books about presidents and Barack Obama and motivate students by asking the following questions: Who is the President of the United States? What do you think it takes to be President? To whom do you think the President is going to be speaking? Why do you think he wants to speak to you? What do you think he will say to you?”
  • “Teachers can ask students to imagine being the President delivering a speech to all of the students in the United States. What would you tell students? What can students do to help in our schools? Teachers can chart ideas about what they would say.”

  • “Why is it important that we listen to the President and other elected officials, like the mayor, senators, members of Congress, or the governor? Why is what they say important?”

May I give my answers?

What does it take to be president? You have to be 35 years of age. You have to have lived in the United States for at least 14 years. And you must be a natural born citizen. The jury is still out on this one.

Why is he speaking to schoolchildren? Because he knows most adults no longer believe anything he says. Because he knows children are not discerning enough to see through his lies. Because he is attempting to find new constituents for the 2012 election, at which time fully a fourth of these helpless subjects will be of voting age.

Why is it important that you listen to him? It is not. It is important that children not listen to him.

And that’s why I am urging all responsible parents to keep their children out of school today or insist your district provide alternative education plans for the time of this speech.

Children don’t need to be politicized.

I know Obama’s friend Bill Ayers would disagree. But it is immoral to manipulate children in this way. It is a gross dereliction of duty by every so-called “educator” involved.

This is about turning innocent children into activists and community organizers in the Saul Alinsky model.

What can Obama tell these kids that would be valuable to them? Work hard so you can achieve? Unlikely. Obama achieved the highest office in the land without ever holding down a responsible and productive position in business in his life. What kind of a role model is he for American children?

Is he really going to talk about “citizenship,” as the Department of Education notes suggest?

How about establishing his own natural born citizenship before lecturing others?

What is happening in America’s classrooms today is an example of why all responsible parents should do everything in their power to get their kids out of the clutches of government-school mind control programs – permanently.

Trust me. It’s what’s best for your kids.
