The better-known of the two songs being taught to these children is the one sung to the tune of "Jesus Loves the Little Children", where Jesus' name is replaced with Obama's: "He said red, yellow, black or white/All are equal in his sight. Barack Hussein Obama." The lesser-known song follows this paragraph, with my comments in parentheses. (Such glorification/deification of a human being reminds me of something that takes place daily in Communist China and Communist North Korea... enforced leader-worship.) Here's song number two...
"Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say "hooray!" (Great accomplishments? Name ten... or five............ three?)
Hooray, Mr. President! You're number one! (And your job performance is number two!)
The first black American to lead this great nation! (Black? Did he only have ONE parent? As I recall from art and science classes, a mixture of black and white produces gray.)
Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
To make this country's economy number one again! (By nationalizing health care and the automotive industry, increasing the national debt, and devaluing the U.S. dollar? I can't wait to see him pull the rabbit out of the hat...)
Hooray Mr. President, we're really proud of you! (A few are... for some obscure and unknown reason)
And we stand for all Americans under the great Red, White, and Blue! (No... you only stand for those Americans who can't see what's happening right under their collective nose!)
So continue ---- Mr. President we know you'll do the trick (Now we're back to the "rabbit out of the hat" thing, and the Grand Finale will be to make the Democratic Republic of the United States of America disappear.)
So here's a hearty hip-hooray ----
Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!"
In a statement, New Jersey Education Department spokeswoman Beth Auerswald said the commissioner has directed the school's superintendent to review the matter. Auerswald said the commissioner wants to ensure that students can celebrate Black History Month without "inappropriate partisan politics in the classroom."
That sounds appropriate to me! But, just out of curiosity, how does one celebrate "Black History Month" without the inclusion of references to Little Black Sambo, Uncle Tom's Cabin, the slave trade, and the formation of the KKK. All are primarily depictions of negative experiences in black history, but they are, nonetheless, a part of black history. I guess liberal revisionist history will have to suffice...
I could be wrong about the way I see this whole thing, but not at this point in time.
