School attendance will be down on September 8 as parents give kids a P.A.S.S. to stay home — that’s a Parentally Approved Skip School. The movement started spreading like wildfire on Twitter yesterday afternoon, in response to the announcement of Obama’s plan to brainwash our school children.
Parents throughout the United States spontaneously decided to keep their kids home that day, as evidenced by comments all over the Blogosphere. But two mothers on Twitter, Tammy and Sherri, gave the idea coherence and focus. Here Sherri is a call-in to the Glenn Beck program:
Here’s Sherri’s original post in the Save Our Country Now forum:
Apparently, Our Beloved Leader, Barack Hussein Obama, the most merciful, Lion of the Masses, Protector of the Common Man and Omnipotent Parental Figure, will give an address on September 8 to America’s school children. The audience will be all children, preK-12. In protest of the forced ObamaTV viewing in classrooms across the nation everyone is encouraged to participate in a National Skip Day and keep your kids home. Take the opportunity to teach your kids true life lessons and not subject them to Obama propaganda. Maybe even use the day to make protest posters for the 912 March on DC!!
The U.S. Department of Education, apparently with the expanded role of overtly propagandizing America’s youngsters, has thoughtfully prepared “learning materials” for teachers to use in preparation for this historic and truly unprecedented event. They have been very thorough, preparing “Classroom Materials” in two separate packages, one directed at children “preK-6″ the other of students in grades “7-12.” Note: “preK-6″ implies that the Dear Beloved Leader anticipates his message being broadcast to pre-kindergarten children.
In response to the firestorm of controversy over the Hitler-style indoctrination of young people, the White House had the proposed class outlines revised “to clarify the language.” In other words, having tipped their Marxist hands, they are backpedaling.
As Allahpundit notes at Hot Air:
I’m guessing this won’t lead to any changes of heart among those fearful enough of Hopenchange brainwashing to pull their kid out of school next Thursday, but it does take a key talking point away from them.
Meanwhile, the nation’s homeschoolers are congratulating themselves for the wisdom of their educational strategy.
