The latest viral wingnut e-mail, sent early on Tuesday, reveals that teabaggers (with the help of the G0P) are organizing a nationwide "Keep Your Kid Home From School Day" to protest President Obama's upcoming address to schoolchildren on the importance of studying hard and getting a good education.
Read it for yourself and have a good laugh:
Word is traveling fast on the internet, between bloggers and twitter, the choice is clear : No school for kids on September 8th due to the beginning of Socialist Indoctrination of Americas children.
Keep your kids home September 8th
2009 September 1
Take a day of vacation. Go to the zoo. Anything that would save your offspring from what I will bluntly say is just the quasi-fellating the executive branch. That cackling over a bubbling cauldron you hear is the NEA rejoicing.
President Obama’s Address to Students Across America September 8, 2009
I wouldn’t have such a problem with the Department of Education were this presented in a non-Orwellian fashion. Oh yes, it is, as the lesson plan directs, to listen to what t he president, the mayor, et al. says, to respect their "authoritah" </Cartman>, but there is no emphasis in here on why the president and other elected officials should listen to US. The focus is solely on authority. There is no consideration given to the authority of the American people. That’s what concerns me.
There is this mindset that those in Washington are the "elite," that we should mind our Ps and Qs and blindly follow their directives. That’s not the manner of governance upon which this country was founded – it is quite the opposite; even the hobbyist Constitutional aficionado appreciates this.
So yes, keep your kids home on September 8th and teach them that the power of America rests in the hands of its people, no one else.
NOTE TO OBAMA :
LEAVE OUR KIDS ALONE !!!!
Funny thing is, you didn't hear a peep from these nutjobs when the first President Bush delivered a 15 minute speech to the nation's classrooms on the importance of avoiding drugs. You didn't see any of them blowing a gasket when teachers were supplied with guides to help student's interpret President Reagan's Challenger Speech. And you certainly didn't see Democrats pulling their kids out of school over either of those events.
Unless these people don't want their kids to be encouraged on studying hard, there's only one reason for them to have their children play hooky: an irrational fear of President Obama.
Their outrage over this speech is being fueled by the likes of Matt Drudge and Michelle Malkin and even the Republican Party itself, each of whom represent the crazy behind the crazies. They've completely lost their minds. Insane to the core.
Maybe if they spent more time in school instead of skipping it, they'd learn how to spell words like "oligarchy."
