It’s one think to honor and respect your current president, but this is freaking propaganda. Why not just put a halo on his head and call him the black Messiah!
EAGNEWS – It’s no secret government schools have put President Obama on a pedestal unlike any other national leader.
ObamarunSchools have been named after him long before his retirement or death, which is rather unprecedented. Students have been led in organized chants of his honored name. There are lesson plans comparing him to Abraham Lincoln.
But sometimes school employees take the rhetoric a bit too far and wind up in propaganda territory. The latest example comes from DeKalb County, Georgia.
For Black History Month, Livsey Elementary School created a cute display with the lines:
Rosa sat…so Martin could walk.
Martin walked…so Obama could run.
Obama ran…so our children could fly.
The jingle obviously refers to Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and the display features their pictures. There’s no questions their actions forged a pathway for many black Americans to have decent lives, and for first-term Illinois Sen. Barack Obama to run for – and win – the presidency of the United States.
