News today …….
The Virginia Education Association sponsored “Obama Blue Day” on Tuesday. In an e-mail sent last week, it urged teachers to participate by dressing in blue.
“There are people out there not yet registered. You teach some of them,” the Sept. 25 e-mail reads. “Others, including our members, remain on the fence! Its time for us to come together, voice our unity, because we make a difference!”
“Let’s make Obama Blue Day a day of Action!” the e-mail continues. “Barack the vote!”
Try to remember that these are the same groups (like NEA) and same people who believe that vouchers and school choice is wrong and, in many cases, who are adamently against children accessing Bibles in a school library…..lest they get a better education or be influenced by..oh no…Jesus Christ.
But it is OK to brainwash young minds with the human self-proclaimed messiah because he is all that is good…he is unity…he is hope….
HOGWASH! Parent’s should be outraged.
But many state Republicans are miffed by the plan, which they characterize as an obvious attempt by the teachers union to encourage young, impressionable voters to cast their ballots for Obama.
“It’s a breach of public trust on many levels,” Virginia Republican Party Communications Director Gerry Scimeca told FOXNews.com.
Scimeca, who described the VEA as a “very political organization,” said the school environment is “a completely inappropriate place for teachers or education staff to be politicking on behalf of any candidate. Parents send their kids to school to get a bipartisan education.”
Next thing you know they will have Obama hymns for the children to sing…oh…wait….
