Singing Praises

leave a comment »

About fifty years ago, it was not uncommon to hear singing coming from the classroom.  Songs like the Battle Hymn of the Republic, America, America the Beautiful, as well as even spiritual songs that give praise and honor to the Creator for His mercy and blessings of liberty. 

Since 1962, though, thanks to a very stupidly idiotic Supreme Court who, by judicial fiat, inappropriately applied the Establishment Clause and made God unwelcome in the classroom, just making the dumbkopfs at the American Crazed Liberal Union (ACLU) sing praise songs of their own.  And of course, as God has been expunged from the classroom back then, it’s now spiritually silent in government, as Abraham Lincoln predicted, almost prophetically.

But now, instead of patriotic songs or secular songs, the kids are now singing praises once more – but not praises to God or anything, but instead, to Barack Obama.  The kids at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, NJ, have now been taught songs giving praise to President Obama, the second one set loosely to the Battle Hymn of the Republic (grrr):


Aww, what sweet little angels, singing songs about someone whom they don’t understand at all.  Want to sing along?  Here are the lyrics for two – don’t sing the blue lines, those are my comments, just think about those while you sing the songs:

Song 1:
Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
(is he tasty or something?)

He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
(lend a hand, holding lots of tax dollars, that is)

He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
(oh yes, more of that social justice, all-the-world-has-to-be-fair-and-play-nice garbage)

He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
(everyone does get a chance in America. Not everyone is successful – but because we want to be fair, we have to doll out trillions to even the score)

He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama
(all are equal in his sight?  We are all equal in GOD’s eyes…but I guess these people think him to be some sort of enlightened deity)

Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama


Song 2:
Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say "hooray!"
(what accomplishments??!?)

Hooray, Mr. President! You’re number one!

(just don’t go stepping in number two…)

The first black American to lead this great nation!
(grr…but it’s never been about black or white, eh? never been about race?  not to mention the guy is only half black…he’s also the 44th white American to lead the nation..)

Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
To make this country’s economy number one again!
(what plans?  Every one of them involve spending money we don’t have on programs we don’t need.  If he wanted to help the economy, he’d stop demonizing business and turn his ire towards government itself)

Hooray Mr. President, we’re really proud of you!
And we stand for all Americans under the great Red, White, and Blue!
(you do?  he does?  ask that question of SEIU and ACORN)

So continue —- Mr. President we know you’ll do the trick
So here’s a hearty hip-hooray —-
(silly rabbit – tricks are for kids, besides, on the street, a trick is, what, $50 these days? And if you don’t have the money, ask ACORN. I’m sure they’ll help with the tax advice)

Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
(yeah, hooray…can we eat the minstrels now? it’s getting cold out here)

Give me a minute…I’m seething…and giggling maniacally…

Okay, what the heck is all this about?  I mean, this isn’t education, this is indoctrination, plain and simple.  But the thing is, President Bush said these same things and yet, the kids in the schools weren’t being taught the “mmm mmm mmm, George Walker Bush”.  Maybe it just doesn’t roll off the tongue as well, but perhaps maybe its because despite being called crackpots for making assertions about glorified hero worship (which is unjustified because he STILL really hasn’t done anything, even after nine months), the point is, we’re seeing it in front of our faces and then being derided by the left when we call them on their near idolatrous behavior.

I’m not against people giving President Obama credit where due, but the amount of praise lavished on this sitting president is seriously unjustified, as well as unnatural.

This is yet another reason why I am so glad my kids are homeschooled.
