This letter came home with my kids today.
September 3, 2009
On September 8th, the first day of school for many children across America, the President of the United States will deliver a national address directly to students on the importance of education. He will challenge them to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning. He will also advocate every child receiving the best education possible so they ultimately can compete for good jobs and live rewarding and productive lives in their communities.
Because this is the first time an American president has spoken directly to the nationa’s school children abou suceeding in school, U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, has encouraged principals, teachers and students nationwide to watch this live broadcast next Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. Students in Granite School District will be provided the opportunity to hear this address. If you have questions or prefer your child not to participate, please contact the school principal.
I’m going down to the school in person tomorrow to speak with the principal. My children will not be participating in this event.
I’m so furious that I’m having a hard time putting this into words. The sheer unmitigated gall of this man has no bounds.
The letter points out that “this is the first time an American president has spoken directly to the nation’s school children”. No kidding? That’s because every single other one was classy enough not to do anything this offensive. I would be offended if George Bush wanted to speak directly to my kids. In fact, I think if Bush had wanted to talk directly to our kids, the media would have had an apoplectic fit. Hell, I would have been ticked if Ronald Friggin’ Reagan had wanted to talk directly to my children. I never thought we’d have a president who’d make me look back and wish fondly for the integrity of Bill Clinton.
It isn’t your damn job. It isn’t your job to teach my kids about anything. You have no business influencing my children in any way, shape, or form.
This is asinine, absolutely asinine. Obama is a Marxist. I despise everything he’s done. I despise the people he’s surrounded himself with, communists, eugenicists, and quacks, lunatics and sycophants of lunatics. I hate what he’d done to America, and I know that I’m not alone. Approximately half the country hates him. He’s pushed more controversial legislation in a shorter period of time than any US politician ever. He makes FDR look like John Adams, and right now he’s embroiled in the middle of the most impassioned and hated piece of legislation in the last fifty years, and in the midst of that, he somehow thinks it is a good idea to come speak to America’s kids?
Let’s see… Isn’t influencing the youth something straight out of the socialist playbook? Oh, wait. I’m not supposed to call him a socialist, even though I’ve had a very simple challenge out to any of his supporters for the last month, and nobody has answered it yet. If Barack Obama is not a socialist, can you name five policies, regulations, or laws he’s pushed during his presidency that Karl Marx himself would not have approved of? I’m still waiting on that one, and until anyone can answer it, he’s a Marxist.
Listen, you self-righteous sack of crap, we don’t like you. We don’t like what you’re doing. Red State America hates your guts. We hate your policies. We don’t want Cap & Trade. We don’t want Socialized Medicine. We don’t want to you telling us what to eat, how to live, or what to feel. We don’t like your friends. We don’t like your advisors or your legions of czars. We don’t want the government to build our cars, run our banks, or our health. We don’t trust the government, and we especially don’t trust you.
Stay away from my kids.
