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.
