One of the most disturbing videos I've ever seen came from B. Bernice Young Elementary in New Jersey. The Obama worship has reached political brainwashing with this chilling video which same claimed dates back to June 19, 2009; while other accounts claim it was presented as part of Black History Celebrations in February of this year -- this has NOW been confirmed by the school district. (see bottom of post)
The video was reported a month ago by Prison Planet, but was dismissed as it was erroneously associated with a school in Arkansas. The BBY Elementary teacher retired at the end of the school year, so calls for "her firing" and "investigations" are irrelevant.
The Messianic association with President Obama that disturbs so many opponents has prompted claims of "racism" and "part of the right-wing fear mongering" but this reminds me of Castro or Korean worship videos.
Here the children are taught "Jesus Loves the Little Children" with Obama "saving the world"
"Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red, yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight…" to these lyrics:
"He said we must be fair today! Equal work means equal pay! Barack Hussein Obama! He said, red yellow, black or white, all are equal in his sight! Barack Hussein Obama!"
There are references to his "great plans" to "make this country's economy #1 again"
Can you imagine kids singing in 2003 of the glory of President Bush toppling Saddam Hussein or giving us tax cuts?
Oh wait, we did have accusations of Christian brainwashing under George W. Bush. This video from a Christian Camp didn't focus on their religion or beliefs, but was used as an example of how Republicans are brainwashed. At the 7:08 point in this video, a cardboard cutout of Bush is brought out and the kids are asked to pray of "him" - it, whatever.
Before the election was had this video: "Sing for Change" which was dismissed as "a song of hope" and how can hope be a bad thing?
So months later, New Jersey kids are chanting the Obama version of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic"-- "Mr. President, We Honor You Today."
"Jesus" and "God" is being substituted by the use of the President's name. The Messianic message is loud and clear.
Now we have a parent who has spoken out:
Andrea Ciemnolonski, the parent of another one of the students in the video, said the song was part of a second-grade project on a variety of topics related to the month of February, such as Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day and Presidents Day.
"They did songs about President Washington, Lincoln, and they did do one about President Obama," Ciemnolonski said. "My daughter was in the class that did the songs about Obama. It was black history month. ... It was something for the kids to celebrate."
Ciemnolonski said she "just can't look at it as indoctrination," though she added, "The comparisons made were a little exuberant."
Exuberant? Does she mean exuberance as in unrestrained enthusiam, joy and praise? Sounds like worship.
This is NOT respect for a President, the office or otherwise, this is worship. This is indoctrinating individuals, children in particular, to glorify and praise their politicians. I'm not surprised by society's lack of knowledge of Nazi Germany, and other regimes, which brainwashed youth to mindless obedience to its leaders.
What I'm surprised by is the dismissive attitude by Democrats and Obama supporters. If we combine this story with the unprecedented Obama speech to public school kids and the Department of Education's lesson planning; add in the National Endowment of the Arts colluding with the White House to fund develop of propaganda to support the President's policies.
Letter from the school District released today 09/25/09
Dear Burlington Township Families:
Today we became aware of a video that was placed on the Internet which has been reported in the media. The video is of a class of students singing a song about President Obama. The activity took place during Black History Month in 2009, which is recognized each February to honor the contributions of African Americans to our country. Our curriculum studies, honors and recognizes those who serve our country. The recording and distribution of the class activity were unauthorized.If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me or Dr. King, Principal of B. Bernice Young School, directly.
Sincerely,Dr. Christopher M. Manno,Superintendent of Schools
Lyrics to both Obama songs:
Where did this all come from?
Alteredbeat," the YouTube user who posted the video on the Internet, told FOXNews.com that the video was first put online by Charisse Carney-Nunes, an activist and author of the children's book "I Am Barack Obama," which her Web site says "allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama."
Carney-Nunes has been promoting the book during visits to schools on the east coast.
A poster for the book can been seen near the stage of the auditorium in the video of Bernice Young Elementary, but it is unclear whether Carney-Nunes had visited the school or was present during the filming.
"Alteredbeat" told FOXNews.com that he reached out to Carney-Nunes, who insisted that the program had been filmed in June as part of a Father's Day tribute to President Obama. "The kids made up the songs on their own," she wrote, according to the YouTube user.
"Alteredbeat" originally posted the video Sept. 6, two days before Obama made an address to the nation's schoolchildren in which he praised the American education system as the best in the world and urged students to stay in school.
"At the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive parents, and the best schools in the world," Obama said.
