Update: With all due respect to hard working teachers everywhere who educate, not indoctrinate, this video is dedicated to the students fighting indoctrination in schools such as Aragon High School in California.
Time was when Americans could laugh at leaders from other nations who tried to create a cheesy cult of personality. Now we have our own cheesy tin pot rattling “leader”.
That Tin pot dictator mentality is what has raised alarms about Obama’s speech next week aimed at schoolchildren. President John F. Kennedy was a popular president who started a presidential effort aimed at schoolchildren. But the Kennedy efforts were aimed at physical fitness and physical fitness programs not at creation of a cult of personality akin to North Korean “Dear Leader” rallies.
There were no “let’s get physically fit for the glory of the Dear Leader” components from John F. Kennedy. Attempts to link physical fitness or sound educational goals to the greater glory of “Dear Leader” abound in world history. Hitler youth programs, Leninist state glorification camps, Maoist “Red Book” wavers, dozens of African leadership cults, Red Kerchief programs from the socialist world, all are examples of the glorification of the state and the “Leader” via school children programs.
The Tin Pot Dictator mentality is now firmly rooted in the Obama regime:
The Obama administration is rethinking its course recommendations for students ahead of President Obama’s address to the the nation’s schoolchildren next week, rewriting its suggestions to teachers for student assignments on how to “help the president.”
White House aides said the language was supposed to be an inspirational, pro-education message to America’s youths, but its unintended consequences were evident.
Among the activities initially suggested for pre-K to 6th grade students was to “write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president.”
Another assignment for students after hearing the speech was to discuss what “the president wants us to do.”
This latest Obama Tin Pot dictator controversy is not about education – it is about indoctrination:
Christina Erland Culver, former deputy assistant secretary for education, said presidents have traditionally addressed classrooms on the first day of school, but the problem with the event was the accompanying materials from the Department of Education.
“That’s where they kind of got into a slippery spot. Federal statute denies any authority to the Department of Education to provide any kind of curriculum or anything that can be passed down to the state, and that’s part of the statute forming the Department of Education. So they kinda got themselves into this mess because they didn’t really understand some of the key legal roles or the dos and don’ts at the federal Department of Ed,” she said.
Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.

Recently we were made aware of an Assistant Principal in a school in California which libeled HillaryIs44. The Assistant Principal of the school, Mr. Silton of the Aragon High School, wrote about HillaryIs44 (supposedly one of his favorite websites):
When Hillary Clinton lost the primary, this site went into full-time hatred of Obama to the point of irrationality. Overrun by racists, I know this isn’t representative of Hillary supporters but it still gives me the creeps. These folks think they are the victims of the century. You lost. Get over it!!!!
Pity the students of Aragon High School who are clearly being indoctrinated, not educated. Detailed analysis of what Obama actually does, the actual Obama history, instead of worshiping what Obama says is labeled “racist” by Commissar Silton.
Commissar Silton is not alone. As we predicted, race-baiting was not only the preferred method of choice is gifting Obama the Democratic nomination – race-baiting is the weapon to be deployed in order to force through the massive giveaway of tax dollars to the pharmaceutical and insurance companies called the Obama/Ted Kennedy Health Insurance scam.
We were not joking when we wrote Black Or White – We’re All “Racists” Now:
Barack Obama Thugs (hereinafter, “B.O.T.s) are back out in the streets. The “racist” card is charging up a storm. Anyone who opposes Obama is labeled “racist”. We now see the face of Barack Obama – “a uniter not a divider”. If you are black and opposed to Barack Obama – “racist”. If you are white and opposed to Barack Obama – “racist”. Anyone opposed to Barack Obama or his policies – “racist”.
Repeatedly we have warned:
Obama wants to play the “racist” card to resuscitate the corpse of his health insurance scam. Obama is angry that Patterson is playing the race card, like a desperate riverboat gambler. Obama wants to play the “racist” card later, not now.
“Now” has arrived. Charlie Rangel, in trouble for his own myriad tax problems, played the race card for Obama today in preparation for next week’s Obama circus appearances on ABC, at picnics, and before congress.
Bring out the “race card” Charlie:
First it was Gov. Paterson. Now the dean of New York’s congressional delegation has played the race card — and just as the governor did, he’s using President Obama to do it, the New York Post reported.
Rep. Charles Rangel said Tuesday that “bias” and “prejudice” toward Obama are fueling opposition to health-care reform.
Those incendiary comments came on the heels of Paterson’s controversial comments about race that also mentioned the nation’s first black president.
“Some Americans have not gotten over the fact that Obama is president of the United States. They go to sleep wondering, ‘How did this happen?’ ” Rangel (D-Manhattan) said Tuesday.
Speaking at a health-care forum in Washington Heights, Rangel said that when critics complain that Obama is “trying to interfere” with their lives by pushing for health-care reform, “then you know there’s just a misunderstanding, a bias, a prejudice, an emotional feeling.”
“We’re going to have to move forward notwithstanding that,” said Rangel, the powerful chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee and a chief health-care negotiator.
Rangel then likened the battle over health-care expansion for the uninsured to the fight for civil rights.
“Why do we have to wait for the right to vote? Why can’t we get what God has given us? That is the right to live as human beings and not negotiate with white southerners and not count the votes. Just do the right thing,” he said.
Rangel and Commissar Silton ignore the many African-Americans, many on this website, who courageously spoke out and continue to oppose Barack Obama. Rangel and Commissar Silton ignore Obama enablers, like Congressman John Conyers, who now express their profound disappointment with Obama. Rangle and Commissar Silton ignore the blog enablers of Barack Obama who now sound just like Big Pink.
The “crime” of Big Pink has been to tell the truth Commissar Silton. Shout “racist” all you want – we will not be deterred.
Everyday more and more accused “racists” are born as the Tin Pot Dictator enablers race-bait more and more.
Shouts of “racist” will not work to pass the abomination called Obama/Kennedy health insurance reform. Shouts of “racist” on behalf of Obama dilute actual instances of racism.
It used to be that patriotism was the last refuge of scoundrels, now it is shouts of “racist” from Tin Pot Dictators and their commissars.
