The commissioner of New Jersey’s Department of Education ordered a review on Friday following the posting of a YouTube video depicting school children singing the praises of President Obama.
In a statement to FOXNews.com, Education Department spokeswoman Beth Auerswald said the commissioner has directed the school’s superintendent to review the matter. Auerswald said the commissioner wants to ensure that students can celebrate Black History Month without “inappropriate partisan politics in the classroom.”
“In addition, it is our understanding the teacher in question retired at the end of the last school year,” the statement continued.
Auerswald declined to indicate exactly what the review would entail or possible ramifications.
As critics of the video claimed it amounted to “indoctrination,” the tension at B. Bernice Young Elementary School escalated to such a degree Thursday that the school was placed temporarily on lockdown after its principal received death threats over a YouTube video that showed nearly 20 children being taught songs lauding the president, though back-to-school night events continuing as planned Thursday night at the school.
Video of the students at the Burlington, N.J., school shows them singing songs seemingly overflowing with campaign slogans and praise for “Barack Hussein Obama,” repeatedly chanting the president’s name and celebrating his accomplishments, including his “great plans” to “make this country’s economy No. 1 again.”
One song that the children were taught quotes directly from the spiritual “Jesus Loves the Little Children,” though Jesus’ name is replaced with Obama’s: “He said red, yellow, black or white/All are equal in his sight. Barack Hussein Obama.”
……”Alteredbeat,” the YouTube user who posted the video on the Internet, told FOXNews.com that the video was first put online by Charisse Carney-Nunes, an activist and author of the children’s book “I Am Barack Obama,” which her Web site says “allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama.” Carney-Nunes has been promoting the book during visits to schools on the east coast.
A cover of the book was placed on an easel to the left of the children. She helped indoctrinate and advertise her book at the same time.
One of the ‘songs of praise’ was a perversion to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic.
Needless to say, many parents were not pleased with the cult-like repertoire.
Black History Month never includes people like former Rep. J.C. Watts (R-OK), economist, author, and commentator Thomas Sowell, RNC Chairman Michael Steele, former radio talk show host Ken Hamblin, former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, author Starr Parker, or Illinois State University sociologist Anne Wortham.
It might be because they’re black conservatives, which automatically exiles them from the black community.
This is one chapter that never made it into Carney-Nunes’ book:
The History of Barack Hussein Obama:
He launched his political career from the home of William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, former Weather Underground members, who were responsible for a series of domestic terrorist acts in the 1960’s. Ayers is quoted as saying “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”
He’s a “community organizing” Marxist who was schooled by a corrupt Chicago political machine, and Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals. His friends, colleagues, supporters, and mentors include ACORN, The (socialist) New Party, Jeremiah Wright, Frank Marshall Davis, Tony Rezko, Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, Van Jones, Mark Lloyd, CAIR, The Muslim Brotherhood, Arab American Action Network, The New Black Panthers, PLO operatives like Rashid Khalidi, and terrorist fundraisers like Hatem El-Hady.
A veritable conglomeration of radicals, communists, socialists, and muslim extremists.
I hope with every fiber of my being, that none of the children she’s attempted to brainwash ever gets to the point where they emulate a flawed, corrupt nihilist like Obama.
