Parents and other citizens alike are naturally outraged, and the school's defense was that the whole thing wasn't supposed to be taped, as if that somehow makes it ok that we have young children singing songs of praise to Dear Leader. Getting kids to effusively praise their head of state through song and dance is a hallmark of almost every dictatorship in human history and a critical step in convincing the population that the dictator is something more than human. Then again, if the people running that school went through the public education system, it's highly likely they never learned about anything other than the white people slaughtering Indians and enslaving blacks.
In the end, this will be just another creepy thing about the Obama Administration that shall be ignored until it fades away, but let's keep it going just a little longer:

Sarjex serves up another illustration for us this week. This time she tackles two topics in one.
Recently, audio has surfaced of a meeting between a representative of the Obama White House and the National Endowment for the Arts or NEA for short. In that meeting, the White House pushed for the NEA to do projects in support of the various causes the administration has been working on, such as health care and environmentalism. Since the NEA is funded with our tax dollars, this is almost as egregious as ACORN getting tax money to help prostitutes evade paying taxes and bring in child sex slaves.
Meanwhile, everyone who disagrees with the administration has been getting slapped with the ye ole "racist!!!!!!" label, although the Obama Administration continues to disavow those who put that out there. Obama has played that card before though, so one is left to wonder if they're just looking for plausible deniability...

This powerful image from a friend of mine who wishes to remain anonymous via her online alias of "Sarjex" illustrates the sad irony of African-American women at ACORN assisting the white undercover reporters from BigGovernment.com in purchasing a house and evading taxes for a business that they flat-out say will be used in the trafficking of underage sex "workers" from El Salvador.
The ACORN employees not only fail to throw the two out or call the police, they actually tell the "prostitute" that she should re-classify herself as a "performing artist" to avoid suspicion. They even go so far as telling the two to claim the underage sex slaves...er..."workers" as dependents and to teach them to keep silent!
Thus, she and I are forced to wonder, if a man came in looking for a mortgage for his plantation, what would they say?

In response, the pundits and the progressive bloggers have demonstrated all kinds of outrage at the breach of decorum. Not only that, they claim the outburst was motivated by some kind of latent racism in Wilson. On CNN, I watched as a host and his guest bantered back and forth the idea that if Obama had looked more like his mother, Wilson would never have had the temerity to speak out like that.
Thanks to a conversation with a friend of mine, I have come to the conclusion that these people simply do not know what a racist breaking decorum looks like. I, fortunately, have an image for them. It looks like this:
That is a depiction of an incident in the US Senate that occurred on May 22nd, 1856. That day, Senator Preston Brooks (D-SC) strode into the Senate Chamber leaning on his gold-tipped gutta percha cane, which he needed to walk due to having been wounded in a duel. He came up to the desk of Senator Charles Sumner (R-MA) and proceeded to wail on the man with his cane.
Sumner was a fierce abolitionist who days earlier had issued a speech against slavery which included viscious personal (verbal) attacks on Brooks' uncle, Senator Butler also from SC. Brooks, a proponent of slavery, found the insults to his uncle and his state completely unacceptable and decided to punish Sumner.
Thus, in the very model of decorum, Senator Brooks beat Senator Sumner over the head with his cane IN the Senate Chamber until the cane broke and he was eventually dragged away.
So, to those who think Rep. Wilson is racist who broke decorum, take a look at that picture and see the difference. With tensions as high as they are in this debate, we are lucky that our Senators at least have the restraint not to try to beat each other to death on the floor of the Senate, even if they aren't reading the legislation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
