got game? Got rap? Wanna be a rich movie star? “That isn’t hard work,”
says Obama, “and chances are you ain’t gonna be any of those things.”
Sep 8, 2009
Well giddyup, girl friends, has everybody read Big Brother Obama's Prepared
Speech to America's students for Tuesday? Let me spare you all the
excitement and summarize it for you: the
underlying moral philosophy in Obama's speech to America's school children
is that it is their moral duty to work hard to sacrifice themselves for the
public good of the collectivist state.
And “wash their hands a lot.”
After plowing through President Obama's narcissistic over-use of his first
person singular pronoun, "I want you to do
this," "I want you to do that," "I, I, I" – sounds like a Cancun
drinking contest -- to ad infinitum, he then starts in on his obviously
state collectivist propaganda. To the uninitiated or very politically
naive, it sounds, at first, like a sleepy little ho-hum, benign speech
babbling about how kids should stay in school and work hard. But listen to
where, politically, Obama's narcissistic first person singular pronoun leads
the student in his not-so-benign speech. "I've
talked about your teachers' responsibility for inspiring you, and pushing
you to learn. I've talked about your parents' responsibility for making
sure you stay on track, and get your homework done, and don't spend every
waking hour in front of the TV or with that Xbox." And then,
here's where Obama starts injecting the role of the collectivist state,
"I've talked a lot about
your government's responsibility for setting high
standards, blah blah blah..."
The “government’s responsibility for setting
standards?” This is absurd. We’re not talking about the Office
of Weights and Measures and how many grains of .995 gold comprises a Double
Eagle coin. It’s not the government's responsibility to educate our
children or set collectivist educational standards. It’s the government's
responsibility to protect their freedoms from infringements, not set statist
talks about the teachers' responsibilities for the state's collectivist
education system. And the principals. And the parents. He admonishes
principals, teachers, and parents in his speech to the students because next
he wants to admonish the students themselves by saying,
"And that's what I want to focus on today: the
responsibility each of you has for your education." Not
education for yourself per se, however, my dear little Sixth Graders, but
for our collectivist state, as we soon learn further on in Obama’s Speech.
Why is Obama concerned about everybody's, especially the student's,
responsibility to America's collectivist public education system? Because
the kids, and therefore their authoritarian education, are part of his view of
America as a future socialist state and Obama wants to make sure everybody
does their part to transform America into His Big Commune. Public Education
is a key to accomplish his Marxist goals.
(Note: as the WSJ just reported, Congress will soon vote, and probably
quietly pass this year, Obama's and the Democrats' program to add $1
trillion more in government debt to shift student loans from a 20% share of
"government liability" to more than 80%. And who is this "government
liability?" It's you, the taxpayers. The taxpayers will soon
"own" Sally Mae -- U.S. government student loan liabilities -- and go into
debt for another trillion dollars just like our $5 trillion dollar Fannie,
Freddie and Ginnie Mae indebtedness for home mortgages. Whoa, that
Federal Reserve; they sure know how to "work" a captive market with pulp
fiction dollars, don't they?)
of all of this is: the fact that Obama is even giving this speech is an
indictment of Pub Ed's dismal failure. Why does he feel the need to talk to
our school children, besides the fact that he wants to brainwash them into
becoming engineers for the government? Because 47% of our nation’s high
school kids don’t even graduate.
failure rate, however, does not stop Obama from
brow beating the students until morale improves.
As we discover further down in our President’s rather transparently Marxist
speech, education is not supposed to be for the students' own happiness or
self esteem per se; it is for training workers for Obama’s future socialist
state. Students must lose their identity. They should not learn for
themselves qua their own happiness, Obama is saying, since in state
collectivism that would be selfish
and selfishness is a big No-No in a
socialist society. Selfishness, or one’s concern for one’s own best
interests, leads to individual thinking, individual rights, individual
freedom and free markets with limited government, the exact opposite of what
Obama is preaching.
words have been carefully chosen to surreptitiously promote state
collectivism. They are not accidental. And they are aimed at your
morality of selfishness -- i.e. the valid philosophy of individuals acting
voluntarily with other individuals
in their own self interests, which is the basis for free market capitalism
-- is the exact opposite of the morality of self sacrifice of the individual
to the collectivist state. Free market capitalism is not something Obama is
advocating. In fact, he wants to "transform" America from free market
capitalism to Marxist socialism. And that's precisely why he wants to
inculcate his not-so-hidden collectivist philosophy into your children's
brains with his Tuesday Speech.
Obama finally starts revealing his real message further down in his speech,
"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
mention of individual rights and freedoms. No mention of the youth of
America choosing to do what they want to do for themselves instead of their
country or government, choosing to study for their own self interests, their
own happiness, or the right to the fruits of their own labor, or private
property, or obtaining wealth to help out their own families. It’s all
about saving the socialist state and the state’s presumed assumption of
power over the entire market. Did not Obama just take over GM and fire its
pressure on the kids, right? The future of mankind and the entire universe
rests on your shoulders, says Barack Obama to all the little Third Graders;
Sally stop pinching Peter's left arm.
“challenges?” Like what “challenges?” Note how Obama cloaks his view of
“challenges” as “government challenges,” not individualist or intellectual
challenges. He demands that our kids must work for the public good, the
state, the government, as he says, "You'll
need to cure cancer and AIDS;
you'll need to
develop new energy to save our environment;
you'll need to fight poverty and
homelessness and crime and discrimination;
you'll need to build new companies that will create new jobs and boost our
economy." Sounds like a U.S.S.R.
home-coming speech by Putin in Russia.
"Boost our economy?” Oops, how did this Keynesian socialist view get into
Obama’s speech? Not by accident. Obama continues,
"If you don't do that" -- if you quit on
our state collectivist school system which exists to serve the authoritarian
government -- "you're not just quitting on
yourself," and here's the statist punch line,
"you're quitting on your country."
It is not self esteem or encouragement as an individual per se -- an
individual who has the right to succeed for the sake of his or her own
happiness regardless of what type of socialist state -- that Obama is trying
to inculcate into our students' brains, it is
the philosophy of the individual as a self sacrificial animal to the
that Obama is propagandizing to young minds, many of them too young to
understand the insidiousness of his Marxist propaganda.
pulls the Let's-Cry-With-Wheel-Chair-Examples Card by introducing three hard
luck stories of kids who have it really rough, you know, as an example to
other kids who may be thinking about not participating in Obama's Pub Ed
system for the new Marxist America. Sob, sob, sob, sounds like he's still
on the campaign trail. "Don't ever give up on
yourself," says Obama,
pretending to be concerned for them as individuals but then revealing his
real socialist concern, "because when you give
up on yourself, you give up on your country." There it is
again. Country, nation, the Fatherland, the state collective.
finally dumps on the kids in the only portion of his speech that mentions
individual achievement and rewards by referring to several career examples
as becoming rich and successful without any hard work, by dissing anybody
who succeeds at "rapping"
(insinuating that music and popular rock groups are inherently bad bad bad
because they don’t work to solve state collectivist, government problems) or
"basketball" (insinuating that all
athletes got rich by not working hard) and "TV
stars" (I'm sure the Hollywood crowd is just going to love this
one), finishing off his sentence by saying,
"chances are, you're not going to be any of those things."
Whoa, dude, kick me in the teeth, why don’t you?
only time Obama mentions individual success and free market rewards of
wealth for the sake of the individual instead of the Omnipotent State, and
he chooses to slap the kids and their dreams right upside their little free
market noggins. Obama brings up the examples of free market success in
music, sports, and acting in order to blast the dreams of millions of kids
who are busy wearing sports team apparel, their favorite rock group
T-shirts, and idolizing their favorite movie stars because those careers or
dreams of success do not fit into his “work hard for our state collectivist
system” message. Obama disses many kids’ dreams, free market capitalist
dreams, by essentially saying, don't bother going in those directions,
because if you ain't working your butt off at 90 MPH in our boring-ass
Public Education system to become a little cog in My Big Socialist State
Wheel solving AIDs and boosting jobs in our economy, not only is that BAD,
you probably ain't going to make it anyway, you little individualist
dinkleberries trying to make it outside my state collectivist education
system. Slap, slap, slap.
So stay in
school and save our nation. It's your duty, kid. And you can’t hit a
high-C or play A-minor rock n roll riffs anyway, Jimi Hendrix, van Halen,
and Yngwie Malmsteen. Bash their dreams, Obama, bash their dreams.
continues brow beating little Fifth Graders into studying for the sake of
His Future Marxist State by trying to offload this Big Lie on our kids'
shoulders, "The story of America is about
students who sat where you sit 250 years ago, and went on to wage a
revolution and found this nation." Really? Let’s get our
revolutionary facts straight, Barack. Actually, the Founding Fathers were
not educated in a state school system; they were either self educated
(Benjamin Franklin) or educated by private tutors or private schools.
And, unlike Barack Obama, they were fighting for less government, not more
government, for more freedom, not less freedom, and certainly not for
for Obama's Big State Collectivist Summary: "So
today, I want to ask you, what's your contribution going to be? What
[state collectivist] problems are you going to
solve? What discoveries [for the public good, not for your own
intellectual interests] will you make? What will a
president who comes here in twenty or fifty or one hundred years say about
what all of you did for this country?"
Hey, how about asking the kids what they want to do for themselves? What
makes them happy? What are their intellectual leanings, their artistic
gifts, for themselves, not to solve government problems as some sort of
collectivist duty? Why do they have to do anything for
"the country?" Or the state
collective? Or the government? Or Obama and his previous Green Czar Van
Jones’ Marxist Borg?
is, Obama is not concerned about school children qua individuals but rather
as little cogs in his future collectivist wheel. Obama’s speech is pure out
and out Marxist, socialist, communist, state collectivist propaganda and he
makes no attempt to hide it. He finds it easier to brainwash the kids
instead of their parents, given all the hullaballoo that's been happening at
all the recent Town Hall Meetings, tea parties, and the upcoming 9-12 March
on Washington by Republicans, Democrats, AND Independents alike.
finishes off his final surreptitious brow beating of our children with the
typical guilt approach, "Your families, your
teachers, and I [Big Brother First
Personal Singular Pronoun again] are doing
everything we can do to make sure you have the education
[nationalized public education]
you need to
answer these questions," you know, how're you going to play your
part in Obama's Collectivist State? "I'm
working hard to fix up your classrooms and get you the books, equipment and
computers you need to learn." Oh thank you, Big Brother, for
your concern about what I need in my education to fit into Your Marxist
Plans for me. "But
[and here it is, folks, the inevitable statist demand]
you've got to do your part, too. I expect
this, I expect that, I demand this of you, blah blah blah."
"So," brow beat, brow beat by Obama,
"don't let us down -- don't let your family or your
country [there it is again, state
collectivism] or yourself [but only as a cog
in His Wheel] down."
Once again, the underlying moral philosophy in
Obama's speech to America's school children is that it is their moral duty
to work hard to sacrifice themselves for the public good of the collectivist
Not once does Obama’s speech encourage the children to study and become
happy and succeed for themselves, as individuals, who have the right to be
all they can be, irrespective of his presumed role for them as little cogs
in his future collectivist state.
way, children, Obama wants "you to all wash
your hands a lot, and stay home from school when you don't feel well, so we
can keep people from getting the flu this fall and winter." – FM
