That is the only conclusion I can come too when they call for school children to skip school to avoid Obama’s stay in school speech. Read here and here.

In 1991, I watch President Bush address school age kids.  To be honest with you, I didn’t find it inspiring or life changing.  I also know that Jr. Bush was allowed on TV in public schools many times during his terms.

So what is the GOParanoid so upset about.

Parents across the country are rebelling against plans by President Barack Obama to speak directly to their children through the classrooms of the nation’s public schools without their presence, participation and approval.

The plans announced by Obama also have been cited as raising the specter of the Civilian National Security Force, to which he’s referred several times since his election campaign began, but never fully explained.

“He’s recruiting his civilian army. His ‘Hitler’ youth brigade,” wrote one participant in a forum at Free Republic.

“I am not going to compare President Obama to Hitler. We’ll leave that to others and you can form your own opinions about them and their analogies. … However, we can learn a lot from the spread of propaganda in Europe that led to Hitler’s power. A key ingredient in that spread of propaganda was through the youth,” wrote a blogger at the AmericanElephant.com blog, where the subject of the day was a national “Keep-Your-Child-at-Home-Day.”

“Totalitarian regimes around the world have sought to spread their propaganda and entrench their power by brainwashing the children. I guess it’s easier to indoctrinate a six-year-old instead of fighting a 26-year-old or being challenged by a 46-year-old in the voting booth,” the blogger wrote.

So let me get this right.  Republican children are so stupid that they can be corrupted by one speech.  Give me a break. 

Here is what I think:  IMHO not since the election of 1860 has our country been so divided by a President, and the division is for the same reasons and it looks like it may have the same results.

By the way, where is this debate taking place the most voraciously.  You guessed it:  In the South.

No word on whether Hall County will air the speech.  Gwinnett County will air the speech to elementary kids, but parents may opt out. 

Should be interesting.
