CNN's Roland Martin Calls Parents Concerned About Obama School Address, "Insane" and "Crazy" - Video 9/4/09


Here is video of CNN's Roland Martin last night calling parents "insane," and "crazy," who are concerned about President Obama's national address to school children next Tuesday, September 8.

He was talking to CNN's John Roberts when he made the comments. Like so many, concerned parents and conservatives are being villified for opposing Obama's address as if he wanted to do nothing different than previous Presidents in addressing school children.

Expect to see this kind of diatribe next week as Obama gives his speech, which undoubtedly will be very plain and harmless after all this controversy. What Martin and others never want to mention is that what Obama has done is very different, both in the way the event was scheduled and handed down to schools, and in originally sending out resource kits with a worksheet directing children to write out how they could "help President Obama." That has since been scrapped in the wake of the outcry against Obama's attempt to politicize America's schools.

What's the real objection to what Roland Martin is saying here? He's right. The right-wingers who are finding fault with President Obama's speech to our children are nuts. Find something else to complain about, haters. This one is just plain stupid.

Hmmm, lets see. The most polarizing partisan President ever has his Secretary of Education send a letter to school principals across the nation telling them POTUS will address the nation’s “schoochildren” and they should refer to the accompanying lesson plans whilst participating in this unprecedented event. And you have no issue with that because you just love the guy. Fine. That is your prerogative, just as it is mine to protest the participation of my child my private parochial school. (My school is not participating by the way. Responsible parents FTW.) Parents are the decision makers, followed by elected school boards and superintendents. The Secretary and the Prez attempted a complete usurpation of the power of parents across the nation and all the MSM and Libs can whine about is that we don’t want our children indoctrinated. Nice dodge but those of us who are paying attention fully understand that it is that usurpation of power and the ridiculous lesson plans that are the issue here. This is the missing link. No other President who has addressed the nation’s children - voluntarily, I might add - has had the arrogance and stupidity to provide a read about my magnificent but still unverified life story”and/or write about how you can help POTUS instruction.
Obama and his cronies completely overstepped on this one and they are the ones who should be lambasted for their mistake. You know full well that if W had made such a poor move, heads on the Left would have exploded. Anyone with any intellectual honesty would recognize this.
