Singing Heil Obama in New Jersey
by Phyllis Schlafly October 2, 2009
Red alert to parents: If you send your children to a public school, they may be secretly indoctrinated in the cult of Obama-worship. If that's not your plan for your children, you had better act now, before it's too late.

We now know that the "I pledge" video shown in Utah in August, and only afterwards discovered by parents, was not isolated evidence of indoctrination of public schoolchildren in the new cult of Obama-worship. Second-graders in New Jersey were taught to sing songs of praise and fidelity to Barack Obama in February and again in June, and parents only found out about it this September.

Public schoolchildren are now forbidden to sing Christmas carols that mention the real meaning of Christmas (only songs like "Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer" are allowed), but in New Jersey, second-graders were taught to sing the spiritual "Jesus Loves the Little Children" in which Jesus' name was replaced with Obama's. They sang, "He said red, yellow, black, or white/All are equal in his sight/Barack Hussein Obama."

Before Obama's election, it was considered a political no-no for Republicans to use his middle name. Beginning with his inauguration in January, he and his followers use Hussein to glorify his Muslim heritage and connections.

The revised lyrics teach the kids that Obama will "make this country strong again." The lyrics promote Obama's Lilly Ledbetter law by including the line: "He said we must be fair today/Equal work means equal pay."

Proving that this rewritten Jesus-song wasn't an aberration, New Jersey second-graders were taught to sing a second Obama-personality-cult song to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. Here are some of the lyrics: "Mr. President we honor you today!/For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say 'hooray.'/Hooray, Mr. President! You're number one!/Hooray Mr. President, we're really proud of you!/So continue, Mr. President, we know you'll do the trick/So here's a hearty hip hooray, Hip, hip hooray!"

These songs were not spontaneous kiddie exuberance or extracurricular playground activity. The video makes clear that the teacher was methodically instructing the children, using one talented second-grader to demonstrate exactly how to sing the songs, and coaching students who forgot the words.

The teacher also led the children in giving a sort of Heil Obama salute. On cue, they outstretched their right hands, accentuating their community of action in praising Obama.

The New Jersey songs were first taught to the children at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in February to celebrate Black History Month, and then videotaped in June as part of a Father's Day tribute to Barack Obama. Only after the video was later posted on the internet did parents learn about it.

Who's responsible for this outrage? The teacher has retired with full pension and benefits, and the principal, Dr. Denise King, defended the controversial song, making no apologies.

Parents quoted the principal as saying she would allow the performance again if she could. King touted her trip to Obama's Inauguration in the school yearbook along with Obama campaign slogans and pictures she took in Washington on January 20, and she has posted pictures of Obama in the school's hallways.

Superintendent Christopher Manno issued a written statement that the taping and its distribution were unauthorized, but failed to say whether the singing lesson was approved. State Education Commissioner Lucille Davy directed the superintendent to review this matter but declined to say what the review will cover or if any action would be taken.

Some shocked comments from parents included: "I can't believe it's our school. We don't want to praise this guy like he's a god or an idol or a king." "I felt this was reminiscent of 1930s Germany, and the indoctrination of children to worship their leader."

RNC Chair Michael Steele said: "This is the type of propaganda you would see in Stalin's Russia or Kim Jong Il's North Korea." A poster for the book "I Am Barack Obama" by activist Charisse Carney-Nunes can be seen near the chanting second-graders.

The songs' lyrics sound like a follow-up of the "I pledge" video shown in Utah in which kids were invited to pledge to support all sorts of leftwing goals such as national health care. Specific legislative pledges culminated in pledges "to be a servant to our President" and "to be of service to Barack Obama."

The New Jersey songs are further proof of Obama's plan to indoctrinate schoolchildren, which was evident in Education Secretary Arne Duncan's instructions to all school principals to use the "historic moment" of Obama's September 8 speech to all schoolchildren as a tool to "inspire" them and teach them to be cheerleaders for Obama.

I agree with all the comments. There are some Moms beginning to communicate on blogs to encourage each other and to throw out ideas as to what they each can do to take part in their children's schools and how to get on school boards. I think you can get this information on Glen Beck's web site. The women of this country were the heartbeat and moral pulse of society until they left the home and got too busy to keep their thumb on what was going on. Women can once again take the reins, if they just have the will to do it. But we have to get back to the roots that made this country great, not the world view of what we should be.

No History Generation

A lot could be said here and simply put when the system responsible to educate our best investment has totally failed in every way but indoctrinating their Luciferian views that allows History to repeat. It's very sad when we have a lot of young people who think that they are intelligent with a birth right of entitlements! Who really is to blame? The parents? Or the system? We have a generation of parents that know no better, for they do not know their history either. You have a system that is controlled by Satan himself pulling the same strings as always but just new generations to play the same old trick's on. We have people in higher learning that knows evolution is a hoax but still continues to teach this man made (devil) junk and historians that tweak history to fit their far left views! The poor kids do not even have a chance unless a grandparent or elder steps in and shine some light of intelligence! Just maybe the next generations will have a true head start! There is so much proof in the days that we are in to debunk all the atheistic views and if we work at it we can get the truth out one by one if need be! So who is to blame? I guess we should start with ourselves for being to selfish and busy! God bless

Wake Up America

I agree with all of you. I do not intend to sound pessimistic, but how can we have a positive impact when so many are falling for this. Our courts have taken God out of school. Our businesses have taken God out out of work. And we, ourselves, are guilty of pushing God aside in our “busy” lives. With the removal of God, government has been given free reign in replacing the “truth with God's creations” (Romans 1). Instead we are to place hope in man and government instead of God. We are to idolize earth, trees and environment at the expense of human lives and livelihood while inciting envy and jealousy rather than responsibility and accountability. As a result that is what is our schools are teaching. Even worse is the fact that our own churches are teaching it ( We must make our pledge to God and humble ourselves before Him in prayer and repentance as advised in Chronicles.

The problem is....There is no outcry! This news story was not mentioned on NBC, ABC, or CBS, CNN, etc. The only new worthy station that reported this was FOX on Glen Beck. Hitler, Stalin, Il took over the airwaves and television, and infiltrated the public school systems to promote their Marxist agenda through propaganda tactics; and this is happening in America today, and is escalating at a rapid pace. We must end this and it will only happen when real Americans wake up from their "don't worry be happy" stupor.

Did you know that when you try to view the video it says, "This video has been removed due to terms of use violation." What is that about? Also, can Christian schools be far behind? A teacher of my grandaughter's has made several references about evolution, they chose to show the Obama "pep talk" to the kids, and the have Harry Potter and Twilight books in their library. My son has had a few meetings with them about this, and hopefully will see them through. My point is that the lines are getting more and more blurred, and what is wrong today will seem "not so wrong" tomorrow. Even those who call themselves His are getting mesmerized by this "pagan" culture and have lost their moorings. As God said many years ago and is still saying, "come out from among them and be seperate or you will share in their plagues. "

We Have The Power of The Vote

It is clear to me, and it is my hope, that the majority of Americans do not like what is happening to the America we once knew in values, in character and in ideals. I have seen much in my lifetime, and while I know change is inevitable, I have never witnessed a more dangerous time politically speaking. I plead with any and all that agree with me..We Are The Government...and it is We, that have the power of the Vote...Use it and keep the hope and the dream alive.

The teachers and administrators that are responsible for this should be fired. Where is the outcry for them to be fired. - Lou Newton
