Children Forced to Pledge to Obama

Hopey Change has reached an elementary school in Sin City:

At least three of the five classrooms have an overhead projector and as the children stand to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, the teacher turns on the classroom overhead and a full body image of Obama, with six U.S. flags behind him, comes up about 4 feet away from the flag that hangs on the wall. The screen is apparently around five feet by six feet.
In the image, President Obama appears to be staring straight out with no facial expression, just a serious look. All of the kids in each class faced the President, instead of the flag that hangs in the corner.

Fortunately, parents raised such a stink that the principal promised to put an end to this particular indoctrination procedure. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.

Pledging allegiance to Emperor Arugula.

Am I mistaken in saying that people like this teacher would willingly trade their freedoms and liberty in a heartbeat if O requested it?

Can those teachers be fired as well? Surely we can no longer trust them to be unbiased and teach without partiality.

The teachers should be fired no questions asked. There is no place for this in America.

Hey Folks,

This is what America is now. All the teacher is doing is preparing the kids to function in our current society. As our moonbat friends have tried to explain to us--all this changed on 11/4. You want these poor kids to wander out into our lovely country and not know how to bow, and kiss ass, and suck up and beg forgiveness for being white? How cruel can you be? They must learn to hide their intelligence, to speak in an incoherent fashion, and to forever hold their tongue when their betters speak (Blacks, minorities, homosexuals, Muslims, liberals, and the genuine insane). The schools are doing their best to make sure they learn this.

Thank God for those parents! I think one of the best tools in a conservative's arsenal would be to get on the school boards. Also in PTA leadership. This is where it all starts.

Does anyone have know or can make a guess as to which photograph was used here? (I've spent the entire election and aftermath avoiding as much Obama imagery as possible, but I'm curious about this one)

"a full body image of Obama, with six U.S. flags behind him"

If you spell Obama backwards it spells Amabo, who is the Grand Prime Prince of Neath from the underworld of Glomtuk... I'm really getting scared...

Military to Pledge Oath To Obama, Not Constitution

Conservative News and Reporting

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is extremely frustrated with orders that the White House is contemplating. According to sources at the Pentagon, including all branches of the armed forces, the Obama Administration may break with a centuries-old tradition.

A spokesman for General James Cartwright, the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, states that the Obama Administration wants to have soldiers and officers pledge a loyalty oath directly to the office of the President, and no longer to the Constitution. Story



Just a few of the links...............

From the labels listed on your first link:

"Labels: Barack Obama, Constitution, Defense Department, Defense Secretary, military, oath, politics, President Obama, Robert Gates, satire"

Just to clarify that it's fake.

These kids will be in fifth grade at the end of Obama's first term, and will be high school freshmen in 2017. Assuming we do not have an Executive order abolishing the 22nd Amendment, the first vote they will cast will be for someone other than Obama. Would it better for them to remember the president as someone who offered comfort in time of trouble, than as an idol to worshiped.
To Auntie Jane, I think this is the picture the teacher used

Look out SOURON OBAMA is ready to release his nazgul on his ITS TIME TO DESTROY THE RING IN THE FIRES OF MORDOR

No, no -- no cult of personality here (keep moving; nothing to see; move on). Several conservative commentators have compared Obambi to Mao, with all this "worship the Annointed One" crap coming out of the media, and the administration itself, but our Fearless Leader, the Appeaseocrat, is much closer to Uncle Adolf.

Herr Hitler came to power partly by establishing his own "army" outside of mainstream political control (the SA, or "Brownshirts"). When he finally achieved real power by becoming Chancellor (serving under Hindenberg, the President, at first, who conveniently died within a few months of Hitler becoming Chancellor), and the genuine Army complained about co-existing with the SA, Hitler obviously agreed that they were no longer required, hence the "Night of the Long Knives," the summary dispatch of the SA's leader, Ernst Roehm, along with his immediate subordinates, and the incorporation of the SA whole into the Wehrmacht.

Next, the entire German military were required to swear a blood oath, not to Germany, but to Hitler individually, as Der Fuehrer, "The Leader." From that moment on, til the Wehrmacht was finally crushed by the Allies and the Red Army, everyone in Germany lived and died for their Fuehrer, with the nation coming in a distant second (if considered at all).

Echos, echos, echos . . .

Instead of learning how to spell, as to correct this horrid sort of moonbat poo flinging, the children of America will be learning how to worship politicians. Anyone else feel like they're watching America be flushed down the toilet at a high rate of speed? 10 days into his reign of terror, and were ass deep in soviet style government. Hide the women and children, and grab a moonbat by the throat, the next for years are going to be written in history as the end of capitalism in Amerikkka

Who worries about the cow when it is all about the ice cream?The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade this year.The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president. We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members. We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have. We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.The class had done a great job in their selections.Both candidates were good kids. I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support. I had never seen Olivia's mother.The day arrived when they were to make their speeches Jamie went first He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place. He ended by promising to do his very best.Everyone applauded. He sat down and Olivia came to the podium. Her speech was concise.She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream" She sat down.
The class went wild. "Yes! Yes! We want ice cream."She surely could say more. She did not have to.A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn't sure. Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it? She didn't know.The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cream.
Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide.
Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 52% of the people reacted like nine year olds. They want ice cream.
The other 48% of us know we're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess.I wish I could add to this but there really is nothing else to say.

casb, that's a perfect example of what I've been screaming at the top of my lungs to people for the past year. Perfect example. Thanks!

Anon @ 5:24, you really should learn to spell basic words and gain a decent knowledge of grammar before calling us 'dumb.'

I think this is the most profound piece of political commentary I've read in the last year.

Hmmm It seems every 50 - 60 years or so, a messianic figures rises from nowhere and commits the world to mass destruction...

fire all the teachers. jail the principal. close the school. bulldoze it to the ground. burn the rubble. bury it deep. sow the ground above it with salt.

Close the school. Fire all the teachers. Jail the Principal. burn the school to the ground. bury the rubble deep. Sew the ground above the rubble with salt. and never speak of it again.

Posted by: john at January 31, 2009 10:29 AM

I agree, pimping for the pres during the pledge of allegiance is bunk. I don't think the teacher should be fired but at the very least the practice should not continue and in a more serious case diciplinary action should be handed down on that teacher.

Of course I don't think it has anything to do with making O an emperor, an icon yes, but an emperor certainly no.

>>fire all the teachers. jail the principal. close the school. bulldoze it to the ground. burn the rubble. bury it deep. sow the ground above it with salt.

Can't we just shoot `em?

Would seem like a little less trouble, and might be a cost savings for the taxpayers.
