(the following is best if read in a Jon Stewart voice)
RUN, EVERYBODY RUN! HIDE THE CHILDREN! THEY’RE COMING FOR YOUR CHILDREN! THE NAZIS ARE COMING THE NAZIS ARE COMING!!!
That’s right, Obama wants to talk to children! He’s giving a speech that he has asked schools to set aside time for watching during the school day. There is only one possible reason for this: OBAMA IS HITLER, OH MY GOD THE NAZIS ARE HERE!
From the near-terminally amusing Glenn Beck:
“Gang, you have a system that is wildly, wildly out of control, and they are capturing your kids. As Van Jones himself has said, the earlier we get the kids, the earlier we make this adjustment with the youth, the easier this transition is going to be. Stand guard America. Your republic is under attack.”
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.
Oh my god, he’s talking to the youth! And Hitler used the youth! They’re the same!
The voice of a true American speaking reason:
“Without benefit of the doubt, the president doesn’t get to speak to my children unchallenged,” the writer said.
“Now the former community organizer and current president of the United States is making an unprecedented speech to the school children of our nation. I’d like to believe his motives were pure and politics didn’t play into this. But viewing this administration’s track record doesn’t afford such benefit of the doubt.
“When the president browbeats property owners who want to protect their legal rights… when the president admits he doesn’t know the facts but impugns the integrity of a police force… when the president calls me a liar for reporting what is actually in the health care bills and encourages my neighbors to report me to some enemies list… when the president apologizes to nations around the world and bows to a Saudi king… he loses the benefit of the doubt,” the blogger wrote.
The insightful question was asked, “What’s he going to do, tell the kids to report their parents to the Thought Police if they don’t support Obamacare?” Yes, of course! This is really about getting the youth to turn their parents in to the Thought Police that haunt the dark of night, banished by the rising of the sun!
…Wait, what’s this? OH GOD HITLER BUSH!!!
