In the video below, CIA operative Anderson Cooper bends over backwards to make Obama’s pep rally a right versus left issue and thus deflate criticism. Roland Martin, CNN’s resident pro-Obama shill, told Cooper American parents need to “grow up” and accept government indoctrination of their kids. It’s all the fault of “rightwing” (read: violent and extremist) radio talks show hosts, he declared. In order to push the false right-left paradigm and further obfuscate the issue, CNN rolled a speech of George W. Bush talking about the government’s disastrous “No Child Left Behind” boondoggle before an audience of captive school children. Cooper used the clip to attack Jim Greer, Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida.
Instead of grilling a party hack from Florida, Cooper should have interviewed parents concerned about the brazen attempt by the federal government to propagandize children. In a school district in Missouri, a superintendent told USA Today the district has received “more calls than we’ve ever had on an issue” and parents will keep their kids out of school. “I don’t want him coming into the schools and making a political speech to my children,” a parent in Texas told the newspaper. “It’s just wrong.”
[efoods]Obama’s speech is another example of the Pavlovian/Skinnerian animal training methods used by public schools to indoctrinate children. As Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, former Senior Policy Adviser in the U.S. Department of Education, wrote in her book The Deliberate Dumbing down of America, public schools use the Hegelian dialectic, gradualism, and semantic deception to brainwash the nation’s school kids and turn them into cogs for the state. Public schools are not about education — they are about ensuring the smooth operation of the “system,” according to Iserbyt. Public schools are about indoctrinating children and excluding parents from the process.
It does not matter if Obama talks about specific policies or not during his televised speech — he will be presented as an authority figure to a captive audience of impressionable minds. The speech is about the Obama cult of personality and inculcating children to accept government.
Anderson Cooper is not married and does not have children. If he did have children, he might understand why parents around the country are outraged. On the other hand, as a darling of the ruling elite — he is a descendant of Cornelius Vanderbilt — he certainly wouldn’t send his kids to a public “education” gulag.
