Protesting “Obama’s socialist ideology”

Parents to keep kids home from school to protect them from hearing Obama talk about the importance of staying in school

by

On Tuesday, President Obama will deliver a televised speech to school children where he will talk about the importance of staying in school and working hard. Such a message is too much for some parents, particularly those who listen to conservative talk radio, where this speech is being portrayed as a plot to indoctrinate children. The chairman of the Republican party in Florida announced that “taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama’s socialist ideology,” and some parents are planning to keep their children home on the day of the speech so that they won’t be brainwashed into Obama-loving socialists. Joshua Micah Marshall at talkingpointsmemo.com mused that Obama is “definitely the first black man to get attacked by the right for telling kids to work hard and stay in school.”
