Damned Liberal Indoctrinators

09.07.09 | Permalink | Comments Off on Damned Liberal Indoctrinators

With all the kerfluffle about the impending Obama speech in our public schools tomorrow I thought I’d drop a post to lambast those liberal, permissive indoctrinators. After all, they know that if you get them early and get them often, you’ve got a better shot at shaping their values and perspectives (this isn’t lost on churches either.)

Here are some choice excerpts from the speech to be delivered tomorrow (not in Medina, Ohio – it’s up to the parents to decide if they want their children exposed to this liberal brainwashing.) Read the full transcript here, if you dare.

Now I’ve given a lot of speeches about education. And I’ve talked a lot about responsibility.

But at the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive parents, and the best schools in the world – and none of it will matter unless all of you fulfill your responsibilities. Unless you show up to those schools; pay attention to those teachers; listen to your parents, grandparents and other adults; and put in the hard work it takes to succeed.
And that’s what I want to focus on today: the responsibility each of you has for your education. I want to start with the responsibility you have to yourself.

Yep, that sure is incendiary stuff – be responsible to yourself. I can see why Michelle Malkin is outraged with this liberal swill.

And no matter what you want to do with your life – I guarantee that you’ll need an education to do it.

You can’t drop out of school and just drop into a good job. You’ve got to work for it and train for it and learn for it.

Another key liberal bias: hard work is required for success. You can’t just expect to drop into a good job. The nerve of this guy, doesn’t he know that the socialist government will provide all regardless of your effort level? Obama is clearly a menace.

And this isn’t just important for your own life and your own future. What you make of your education will decide nothing less than the future of this country. What you’re learning in school today will determine whether we as a nation can meet our greatest challenges in the future.

That’s it. Calling on a sense of patriotism and duty to one’s country. We ought to be outraged like Glenn Beck says.

But at the end of the day, the circumstances of your life – what you look like, where you come from, how much money you have, what you’ve got going on at home – that’s no excuse for neglecting your homework or having a bad attitude. That’s no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class, or dropping out of school. That’s no excuse for not trying.

Where you are right now doesn’t have to determine where you’ll end up. No one’s written your destiny for you. Here in America, you write your own destiny. You make your own future.

Doesn’t he know that there are all sorts of valid excuses? He’s asking these kids to overcome adversity and make the most of their opportunities. You can determine your own outcome, how dare he! It is written already. Damned commie! Just like Rush says, he’s dangerous and is destroying the very fabric of our country. We ought to revolt.

That’s why today, I’m calling on each of you to set your own goals for your education – and to do everything you can to meet them.

Whatever you resolve to do, I want you to commit to it. I want you to really work at it.

Commitment. Resolve. Work. Setting goals. All part of the liberal agenda to brainwash us into something we don’t want to be. Don’t you see the subtext here? Americans, US Americans, god-fearing Americans don’t need any of that fancy education. We believe the lord will provide for us. We don’t need any of this filthy self-determination pornography.

The story of America isn’t about people who quit when things got tough. It’s about people who kept going, who tried harder, who loved their country too much to do anything less than their best.

It’s the story of students who sat where you sit 250 years ago, and went on to wage a revolution and found this nation. Students who sat where you sit 75 years ago who overcame a Depression and won a world war; who fought for civil rights and put a man on the moon. Students who sat where you sit 20 years ago who founded Google, Twitter and Facebook and changed the way we communicate with each other.

So don’t let us down – don’t let your family or your country or yourself down. Make us all proud. I know you can do it.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.

Just look at this guy? I mean, who the hell does he think he is? Putting all that pressure on our kids telling them that if they don’t stay in school, set goals, study hard, and try that they will be letting their country down. I mean really, these are just kids. They don’t need the fate of the free world resting on their shoulders. And I’m sure, since he’s obviously a Kenyan muslim, it’s that allah character he’s referencing in thanking god instead of our good old US American christian god. Damn socialist, atheist, muslim!

[sarcasm off] OK, perhaps this post was a little over the top. But a large segment of the US population is looking at this speech in this particular way. It could be racism. It could be ignorance. It could be malice. But what it’s clearly not, is thoughtful. No, the only real issue to take with this speech if you’re a frothing at the mouth conservative is that the more educated students become, the more likely it is that they will see the world for what it is. They’re less easy to control and less likely to invest in invisible friends.

Yes, thinking children are dangerous children. And that my friends, is the crux of the matter.

Addendum: And, for the record, when the Democrats went wing-nut on Bush I in 1991 for speaking to the public schools, that was an exercise in stupidity too.

Close Call!

OSU sinks Navy 31-27

The Navy nearly sunk the Buckeye’s ship by never giving up. Hats off to them for playing the full 60 minutes. Something our Buckeyes could learn. It was a win and we’ll take it, but doesn’t provide great confidence rolling into a week against an opponent like USC (who is, at the moment trailing national powerhouse San Jose State by 3 points in the second quarter.)

The good, it’s a win. The bad, the offensive line doesn’t seem to be much different than last year and we don’t have Beanie toting the mail this year. The ugly, the Buckeye secondary looks very, very vulnerable. The only thing that is providing any hope for next week is that USC seems to be sucking worse against a traditionally pitiful opponent. At least Navy is good. In the end, I like it that a real opponent was present in the ‘Shoe for the opener – in the end, I think this helps the team.

I can’t help shake the feeling that this is a 3-4 loss season though. Let’s hope I’m wrong! GO BUCKS!

The New Season is Here

Block O - The Ohio State University

I haven’t had much time to write about it, but the new college football season started Thursday night and the Bucks play at 9am this morning against Navy at the Horseshoe. It’s been a long eight months since we last saw the Scarlet and Gray in action and I can’t wait to see how the new team performs.

With their triple-option running attack, Navy will be a challenge for a relatively new defense to contain. That should be an interesting battle. And the offense always seems to be behind the defense, even so, I expect the running attack to be working behind a revamped line and going against an under-sized Navy defense. What to expect? Who the heck knows.

I think Navy scores some points, but in the end, Ohio State will score more. How’s that? It will be great to watch and see how the team works together this season. GO BUCKS!


Would You Kill Your Child?

While the first half of this video is a bit of a rambling chat from Penn, the last part nails it. If you believe in a “god” and that “god” instructed you through some means that you believed to kill your child, would you do it? If the answer is no, you’re not really a believer. If the answer is yes, you’re dangerous, deranged, and need help. It’s a handy way to separate those voices in your head for believers and if you’d simply post the answer in some public way, that would be helpful for the rest of us.

Say a brightly colored tattoo saying “YES” across your forehead. That would do it…


We’re All in this Together

This is the video that has conservatives knickers in a twist all around the country and is being called socialist propaganda. Take a look and judge for yourself. It’s celebrity heavy to be sure, but values like patriotism, self-reliance, taking action, making a pledge – these don’t sound like we’re watching the same video as the right-wing blogosphere. Hmm. Makes you wonder.
