Get a clue & wake up! The best way to lead a nation astray of its values is to keep it ignorant of its history.

Sept. 8 Is National Skip School for Freedom Day

At issue was an announcement that Obama plans to deliver a message directly to students via the Internet into public school classrooms across the nation on Sept. 8.

According to announcement posted on ServiceWire.org, Obama will address students “about the importance of persisting and succeeding in school” at 1 p.m. Eastern at the WhiteHouse.gov website.

‘President doesn’t get to speak to my children unchallenged’

“Now the former community organizer and current president of the United States is making an unprecedented speech to the school children of our nation. I’d like to believe his motives were pure and politics didn’t play into this. But viewing this administration’s track record doesn’t afford such benefit of the doubt.

“When the president browbeats property owners who want to protect their legal rights… when the president admits he doesn’t know the facts but impugns the integrity of a police force… when the president calls me a liar for reporting what is actually in the health care bills and encourages my neighbors to report me to some enemies list… when the president apologizes to nations around the world and bows to a Saudi king… he loses the benefit of the doubt,” the blogger wrote.

“Without benefit of the doubt, the president doesn’t get to speak to my children unchallenged,” the writer said.

“My kids will be forced to listen to the views of a president that is perhaps the most anti-American in history, not to mention one who believes we need a ‘civilian national security force just as strong, powerful and well-funded as our military.'”

WND has reported on Obama’s civilian force plans several times, including when he signed into law the “Give Act,” H.R. 1388, which massively expanded the National Service Corporation and allocated to it billions of dollars.

Obama had told a campaign stop in Colorado Springs last year he wants a “Civilian National Security Force” as big and as well-funded as the U.S. military.

Robert Stacy McCain writes today in the AmSpecBlog that the kiddos can have their day off school with good reason!

Rather than merely skipping just that one period, however, Steve “VodkaPundit” Green advocates ditching the whole day — an idea endorsed by a new ad hoc organization, Hoodlums for Homeschooling. Somehow, I suspect even Ferris Bueller’s teacher might approve of this plan. 

Laughs aside, I don’t care that the Prez is giving a service speech to the children.  What I care about is that

  1. I don’t know the content ahead of time,
  2. Most parents won’t be able to be in the classroom at the time of the ‘showing,’
  3. I don’t want any leader telling my child to stay in school like he’s his Father, because he’s not.  Neither is he the ruler of all that is just and fair…….

But do we really need to add to the already inflated sense of the president of the United States as our national daddy?  The man’s in charge of one branch of the federal government; he’s not king (emphasis mine)…

MichaelW thinks the whole thing is “creepy” and says it’s different than what Republican presidents have done.  For example, Bush 41 was telling kids to stay off drugs.  He sees a more nefarious agenda from Obama:

President Obama has already shown that he’s not above using children to advance his political agenda, so it’s not surprising that those opposed to his aims would be a bit skeptical of his speech. Adding to the wariness is the fact that he only seems to make these speeches when he needs help with bolstering his political capital (e.g. the “race speech” after Jeremiah Wright blew up in his face). After the battering his health care insurance reform plans took in August, it almost seems too convenient that he would suddenly want to address all the school kids in the nation, right about when he’s planning to try and save the one program he truly wants to enact.
