Obama Praise Song Singalong

During Black History Month (formerly February) 2009, B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, NJ, chose to promote Barack Hussein Obama with not one, but two praise songs. Here is one on video and the lyrics follow.

You Tube

Follow the bouncing balls, if you got 'em:

Song 1:
Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama

Song 2:
Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say "hooray!"

Hooray, Mr. President! You're number one!
The first black American to lead this great nation!

Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
To make this country's economy number one again!

Hooray Mr. President, we're really proud of you!
And we stand for all Americans under the great Red, White, and Blue!

So continue ---- Mr. President we know you'll do the trick
So here's a hearty hip-hooray ----

Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
The video was made by Charisse Carney-Nunes, The Jamestown Project senior vice president. The Jamestown Project, writes Michelle Malkin, is
“the award-winning author of the children’s books, I Am Barack Obama (2009),” and according to her biography, “a graduate of Harvard Law School, where she was a schoolmate of President Obama.”

The Obama school song video that she taped shows her book featured on an easel next to the children hailing Dear Leader. She promotes her book as a tool that “allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, Who will change the world? Ultimately, he realizes that he will.”
Bookworm points out that "seeing a Dear Leader song is deeply, deeply disturbing. Democracies are not supposed to celebrate individuals in that way, since the worship of an individual is one of the first steps in the march to a statist system."

Wizbang's Lorie Byrd is creeped out by all this latest in Obama worship.

Worse than the fact that these kids are being told to praise "Barack Hussein Obama" or that all the time on this could have been spent learning math or science or reading or even a decent song, is this one line:

"He said red, yellow, black or white. All are equal in his sight."

Anyone who says those of us critical of this Obama worship are overreacting, read that one line that was taught to schoolchildren. I learned a remarkably similar song when I was a child, but it was in "Sunday" school in church, not in my elementary school --
"Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world."

For Immediate Release

Response to Unauthorized Video of Class Activity
September 24, 2009
Today we became aware of a video that was placed on the internet which has been reported in the media. The video is of a class of students singing a song about President Obama. The activity took place during Black History Month in 2009, which is recognized each February to honor the contributions of African Americans to our country. Our curriculum studies, honors and recognizes those who serve our country. The recording and distribution of the class activity were unauthorized.
It's a strange, yet familiar, fascist world we are entering folks. As Bette Davis intoned in All About Eve, "Buckle your seatbelts, darlings, it’s going to be a bumpy night."A very long, dark and stormy night, too.

This is as sick as it gets. The teacher should be fired and or arrested!!!!! Everyone should email the school and protest her attempt to indoctrinate innocent children .I know by now obama ( the lack of caps was not a mistake ) himself has seen it and I bet our wanta be rockstar president loves it.

I think I'm going to be sick! I hope that half the kids in school were sick that day!

The teacher is not teaching she needs to get her ass kicked out of a job!

I can see the résumés of these kids... but I know the song! I should get the same pay as that guy over there that went to school for a doctorate! WHHHAAAAA! Not fair!

That is what I see in the future!
