A Song This Generation of Children Will Never Learn (at least the ones who go to public school)

Sadly, our kids in public schools are being increasingly indoctrinated by the Left. They can't sing "Silent Night"; they can't even sing "secular" traditional Christmas songs like "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." Yet they are made to sing songs of praise to Dear Leader: "Barack Hussein Obama, mmm...mmm...mmm"--and none of the teachers in the school where this went on seemed to have a problem with it.

When I was a kid, no one would have thought of singing a song to a living cult figure, even if he was the President of the United States. Instead, we learned songs about our country. Well, those songs are "out" of the curriculum now, not only because we evidently are no longer a Christian nation, but also because we are no longer an exceptional nation--we're second-rate, at best, if you listen to our POTUS' speech at the U.N., and God knows it seems he would be glad to drag us down to third-rate status if given a chance.

I remember learning and singing "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" in grade school. It's a song that still sends chills down my spine. Not only will this generation of kids never learn it, they'll probably never even hear it. Yet the little ditty those New Jersey kids were singing about "mmm...mmm...mmm...Barack Hussein Obama"--if you listen to the second half of the video, you can hear them singing to the tune of "Battle Hymn." I'm sure the children didn't know that, and I wonder if the teachers even knew.

I chose this version because Judy Garland sings the words clearly and passionately. She sang this on live TV in tribute to John F. Kennedy when he was shot. Evidently she looked into the camera and said, "Jack, this is for you," but that part was edited out of the video. Note that she was NOT singing "John Fitzgerald Kennedy, mmm...mmm...mmm."
