Barack Hussein Obama Indoctrination In School Books

This is from the mother of a Racine Unified School District 8th grader.

"My 8th grade son is in an advanced English class at a public middle school here in Racine, Wisconsin. I just found out that my son's new (copyright 2008) Wisconsin - McDougal Littell Literature book has 15 pages covering Barack Obama.
I was shocked - No John McCain, no Hillary Clinton, no George Bush - Just Barack Obama. I'm wondering how it is that Obama's story gets put into an 8th grade literature book? It would be one thing, if it was just the tidbit about his boyhood days, but 15 pages, and they talk about his "Life of Service". Honestly, what has Obama really done to be included in this book? Not only that, but on page 847 there is a photo of Obama at the 2004 Democratic Convention with at least 8 Obama signs in the background! Front & center is an sign.
Now I understand that many teachers are liberals, but does the school have the right to shove Obama down our kid's throats? All the kids grouped together and read the story. After that, they discussed it... I guess it appears that Obama is planning ahead. If he doesn't get his coveted Presidency, Obama is going to make sure, that the younger generations know all about him, and his "life of service".
If you would like to see the 15 page story on Obama, it appears that you can order this book online. There is a note in the book that says, For more on Barack Obama, visit the Literature Center at The book is: Wisconsin - 8th grade - McDougal Littell Literature - copyright 2008. The Obama story starts on page 830. I hope you will take the time to look at this book. I'm really angry about this - In fact, I would love to rip the pages right out of this book.
By the way, you might find this interesting: I did a little checking on McDougal Littell, and it appears that MCDOUGAL, ALFRED L CHICAGO , IL 60611 - N/A/RETIRED has been making contributions to Barack Obama's campaign!
I found that information on this website.
Now I'm not an expert at these things (just a PTA mom), but It looks to me like Alfred McDougal is connected to McDougal Littell the same company that publishes the 8th grade textbook that has 15 pages on Obama. Like I said, I'm not an expert, but I'm sure you have someone who can delve into the dirty little details.
I guess my question is: Is it ethical for an Obama supporter to publish an educational book which has a 15 page Barrack Obama story in it? If the tax payers are paying for these books, why is it okay for McDougal Littell to promote Obama? This really bothers me. I would have no problem with it, if Obama had actually done something important. Why is Obama being put up on a pedestal, before he actually wins the pedestal? All I can say, is we can thank the liberal media, and now the liberal book publishers. Thanks to them, I'm sure there are probably thousands of these books all across the United States."

Another canary in the mineshaft of freedom, decency, and common sense just died.

I have never seen anything all the things we have seen happening in my life.......NOT IN OUR COUNTRY!

This is very, very bad. If I were able and lived in Wisconsin, I would have the school board up on charges! This is NOT acceptable! This is plain and simple indoctrination of our precious children and the title says it all--Out of Many, One. That is socialism! He says it right there, like we're too stupid to understand what that means.
As a matter of fact, I think I will send this to my step family in Wisconsin and demand they do something about it. I would be up in arms if my daughters EVER brought something home like this.

I bet there is little or no mention of Ronald Reagan in those text books.

Why would they even mention a senator from another state? It sounds like powerful people have worked very hard for several years to set Obama up as our exalted leader. Like Kim Jong-Il.

This is very wrong. There should be nothing more than just a brief mention in textbooks of current politicians. This is an attempt to push a socialist agenda on middle school children. This is a story that the national MSM should make lead stories about. (Of course they won't).

Another reason for home schooling.

The U S has reached a new low! If it was about Colin Powel or even Condi Rice- it would be acceptable-- but Obama makes it a horrible joke! I don't understand how Americans have collectively lost their common sense- or maybe Zombies have just come from the Obama camp and snatched their brains- !! Somebody better complain or there will be more little zombies running around believing crap like this! Obama the liar !!!

Posted by: Cheryl Zee at October 14, 2008 09:42 AM

Well it has started already. They, the left, have been re-writing American history for a while now. Now they got obama already in the white house. What happenes if they lose, or worse. They are committed to this loser.

Somebody said, they thought, obama was a shil for Soros or some group on the left. It is almost uncanny how everything has to be written down for him or a teleprompter stuck in his face so he at least seems to have a small amount of intelligence. It is almost as if he were programmed, you get him outside the fence, his box if it were, and he can't talk but babbles. When that happens he can't come up with one cogent idea, thought or word.

It is as if he was reading and memorizing a script from hollywood, and like all todays actors they are handicapped when it comes to talking on their own.

Interesting post and very disturbing. The consequences for all of us are a scary proposition. I wonder how many more "schools" are involved? Public schools involved in this type of activity should be renamed public indoctrination centers.

Posted by: Bob at October 14, 2008 01:32 PM

Lynn, good idea, maybe if more people know about this there can be something done about it.
I heard Rush talk about it on his last hour of his show today too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 14, 2008 03:34 PM

Tom, I agree I hope the media picks up on this but like you said I will be shocked if they do.
Rush Limbaugh did talk about it on his show today maybe his listeners in the area of this school will do something.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 14, 2008 03:39 PM

Cheryl, I agree, and honestly as long as people don't speak up, demand things like this to stop it will keep getting worse.

It really is up to the parents at the school that this happened. Where is their outrage, that is what I wouuld like to know. It should be making news how upset these parents are. Maybe they are afraid of not being PC, but I say BS to that, this is about the future of our country and this is exactly how it gets sold down the river of socialism.Inch by inch then they wonder what happened.

You are absolutely right Cheryl.

Mark, I think he is, Nick said he thought Obama was a plant and it is all planned out and organized. If he is it sure would explain why they are so organized and truly have thought of every area to flood with propadanda. Especially the young are really being used.

Your right too about most Hollywood actors, with a script like Obama has to have they can memorize it and sound ok, but on their own, off the cuff so much of the time they make idiots of themselves.
The old Hollywood knew this that is why they seldom if ever let stars talk much. haha True, they were completely control by the studios.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 14, 2008 03:57 PM

Bob good question, I only know of this one school. But it very well good be many more.

I would love to know where is the outrage from the parents. This is really crossing the line.

This is not an isolated incident in the brainwashing of America's youth in the public school system. The radical left wing liberal education union crowd has been rewriting history for years diminishing nationalism, patriotism, the melting pot, the contribution of whites in favor of and praising diversity and the contribution of blacks. This now includes the rights of illegal aliens, the goodness of Islam - the religion of peace, and now cult worship of the Messiah of change and the redistribution of wealth.

The book in question is an English book. The article in question is a speech Obama gave during the 2004 National convention. It is used as part of a lesson plan on how to write a good speech. It has nothing to do with Obama as a candidate, as it was published well before he was the 2008 Democratic nominee (June 30, 2008, according to the ISBN Search I did).

Unfortunately, it seems that most people just went with their kneejerk reaction to the textbook. So far, it has been called "cult worship of the Messiah" and been used to compare Obama to Kim Jong-Il.

By the way, Lynn, you say: "Out of Many, One. That is socialism!" And I say, "E Pluribus Unum". They are the same thing. He was just using the English translation of one of this nation's mottos. I bet you did not know that.

You all make me sad. I expected more, America.

The indoctrination of children is appalling. My own nephew is 5 years old and was visiting me this past weekend. I was watching the news and a story on The Messiah came on and he started chanting Obama! Obama! Obama! He's 5!!!!

Years of service my patootie, ask the people in the communities he "organized" how life's treating them these days.

Posted by: Jenn at October 14, 2008 06:05 PM

Thats too bad 'Jerk' John, but everybody knows obama doesn't write his own speeches, He, Obama, just gives them lip service.

This is an English book ? Why not Lincoln's Gettysburg address, known as one of the best speeches ever written, excluding your messiah.

Obama, couldn't order a 'Happy Meal' without it being written down for him. That's how inept that automaton really is.

You to sneak in here and accuse this site of being un-American, Who are you? And who are you to chastise Lynn, you know nothing about her, She has more America in her little finger than you have in your whole life.

Tell us Mr. Know it all how is it, Obama's association with the Very first Timothy McVee, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, the criminal Tony Rezkol, His endorsements from known Terrorists Hamas, why is that American ? It is not you moron, it is anti-American just like Obama's communist wife. There is nothing American about Barrack Hussein Obama, he still can't prove he was even born in this country.

Why doesn't this bother you ? unless you are as -anti-American as obama is. IF that be the case then move, because we are not giving up our country.

Pretty amazing for a no-nothing, empty suit, communist member of the senate who can't even make it to work for half of the time he has held the seat.
This Old Retired Petty Officer First Class has done more and participated in History than this laddie-buck can ever hope to. Of course, he will do his level best to destroy this Nation. And on that not, This Old Retired Petty Officer First Class will oppose him at every turn.
Date of Enlistment: 29 September 1973
Note that date, the obammymessiah was still in a madrassa learning to hate the United States of America and his stumblebum running mate was starting off in the Senate. In less than a year I was on the first of 6 Cold War Deployments made during my career. I really don't think either of them can even match that. Therefore, neither of them is qualified to even kiss my salt-encrusted, buckskin ass. That folks is a statement of fact.
BTW, I do require civil servants to pop tall in my presence. I and all of my shipmates are entitled to it. We are better than they will ever hope to be.
If you have worn the uniform or are still wearing the uniform of the Armed Forces of The United States of America and intend to vote for these two "gentlemen", I ask you to really examine your priorities. Because those of you who are on active or reserve status should know you will be treated as those of us who served in the Vietnam Era. And that was not good. Joe Biden may have a son on active duty and serving in Iraq, but he will use his own son against all of you.
As for senator obama(lower case is on purpose), he despises any and all who serve or have served. His appearance at the American Legion and VFW conventions was a sham, at best. He may even attempt to use the services against the citizens of this Nation who will choose to criticize his policies and severe lack of judgement in any and all things. To Wit: the "man" is a traitor to his country. I am not afraid to state this fact.
As King Leonidas said at Thermopolae to Xerxes, come take them.

Les, thanks for the links and information. Goo grief this is horrible.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 15, 2008 12:20 AM

John Philip Sieber, in short you are wrong, big time wrong. And saying it was simply a speech Obama made makes no difference at all. It is WRONG to put this in a school book. Obama is a thug, friends with Ayers a terrorist and all the other things about Obama.

The place where Obama belongs is OUT of any goveornment office at any level. He is dangerous for our country. And people that vote for this jerk will rue the day when they find out what he has in store for them, count on it. People that beg for socialism are usualy the first to cry and whine about it.

And then WE will all say we told them so, we told them how evil Obama is!

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 15, 2008 12:25 AM

Jenn, wow, that is sad and scary. Only 5 and he is already learning that and has no clue, he is still an innocent child. Giod thing he has you to teach him things as he grows up.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 15, 2008 12:27 AM

Amen TomR! This is one of the reasons that my kids have never darkened the doors of a Government Re-education Facility. Send the school districts a message. Pull your children out and save their souls.

Posted by: Yatalli at October 15, 2008 12:28 AM

Mark, thank you. Well he (John Philip Sieber )can't accuse me of not letting his stupid comment through.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 15, 2008 12:30 AM

GM Cassel AMH1(AW) USN RETIRED, thank you, well said!!!!!!

And this is excellent too.
"As King Leonidas said at Thermopolae to Xerxes, come take them."

I fixed the extra comment. I had that happen several times for me too.
