Teabaggers fight against indoctrination of school children

…with Evil Socialist Communist Marxist-Leninist Values like

  • Initiative
  • Goal-Setting
  • Hard Work
  • Taking Responsibility.

You just wish I was kidding:

Some Texas parents are asking school principals to excuse their children from listening to a speech that President Obama will make to schools next week on the grounds that it smacks of political indoctrination.  [...]

The President will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning,” Secretary of Education Arne Duncan wrote in an Aug. 26 letter to school principals.

And after that, he will herd any dissenters before the Death Panel.   Good grief.

UPDATE:  And meanwhile, in Florida… (via Chet, who thinks they’ve gone  absolutely bananas.  Can’t say I disagree.)

    Oh, sweet Zombie Jesus, this is happening in Texas? TEXAS?!

    Actually, I shouldn’t be too surprised that this is coming from my home state. This is, after all the state that has a crazy homeschooling creotard who accused Obama of being a terrorist-loving Marxist Muslim traitor on the State Board of Education. This is the state that put on a major secessionist rally where a serious candidate for the Republican nomination for governor openly declared his hatred for the United States last weekend. I’m not surprised in the least that they’re pulling this shit.

    Like they’d be upset if it were The Most Holy George W. Christ The Infallible making the speech.

    Fucking hypocrites.

    OMG, JAB. I was listening to Hannity driving around today and even he didn’t want to go there with this thing… he made allusions to it, saying things like “Kids shouldn’t be in government schools” etc., but he wouldn’t come right out and say “Obama’s trying to indoctrinate the children”. But his callers were BATSHIT, and they were all over it.

    Sick stuff. It’s time for the Dems to man up and say “Okay, you guys have had months to contribute and you’ve contributed squat. We’re doing this thing. Take a hike.”

    I’m against the indoctrination of schoolchildren by teabaggers. Round ‘em up!

    Bina – OMFG, can you imagine the kind of environment these kids are growing up in?? :shock: Scary

    And Obama’s going to be promoting Hard Work™ and Initiative™ — aren’t those concepts that conservatives keep humping like they’re the only ones who believe in them?

  6. 6 JJ Wednesday, September 2, 2009 at 8:51 pm

    JAB – Yeah, of course :roll:

    I’ve always suspected that the reason conservatives think they’re the only ones in the world who are responsible and work hard is because deep-down they really hate it and resent it. What they’d really like is to be BUMS laying around doing nothing and taking no responsibility.

    Apparently I was right: they don’t want their kids “indoctrinated” with things like the value of work, setting goals and taking responsibility.

    Not only that, but conservatives are the LAST people who should be whinging about “indoctrination.” *COUGH*CREATIONISM!*COUGH* *COUGH*ABSTINENCE-ONLY!*COUGH*

    That’s Different, JAB. Abstinence Ed is For Their Own Good, and creationism is what the LORD wants to be taught in Science Class :roll:

    JJ:

    In the tried and true attitudes of younger generations to older generations, what’s the usual first reaction of kids being told “oh…that’s bad…that’s dangerous…don’t listen…don’t go there…don’t smoke that…don’t drink that…”

    In trying to ban Obama, the president of the US, from their lives in a world of media suffusion, I wonder if it will have the effect banning most things does to young people.

    Didn’t this happen back in the 60s too? Only the media is more available now.

    Besides, it’ll probably be up on YouTube before the day is out, so what’s the point?

    Some Americans are so far gone, you want to resist the urge to call them unpatriotic (because we know what kind of trouble that word causes…)
    It’s like every day is opposite day now: disrespect for the President of the US is now a solid Christian value…

  12. 12 JJ Friday, September 4, 2009 at 9:42 pm

    Niles – Good point. I’d like to think that it might work that way — that the kids would rebel against their idiot parents — but sadly, when The Stupid is that strong in their very DNA, I don’t hold out much hope for them. You never know, but the deck is definitely stacked against them.

  13. 13 JJ Friday, September 4, 2009 at 9:45 pm

    JAB – There is no point. These people are catastrophically stupid, bordering on developmentally disabled… they don’t think things out that far.

  14. 14 JJ Friday, September 4, 2009 at 9:47 pm

    brebis – Bizarro World, eh? :lol: It’s the New Dumb — too stupid to remember when they were calling people “traitors” and “treasonous” for doing much less than they’re doing now.

  15. 15 JJ Friday, September 4, 2009 at 10:04 pm

    One & All – Read this.

    I’m the last person to cry racism, sexism, whateverism, but there’s no denying it, this is outright racism. The people doing this are racist scum of the highest order.

    It’s fucking sickening.
