UPDATE:  Creepy video was not supposed to be recorded or released.  It was an official public school activity for a program during Black History Month.

The Burlington Township School District, to which B. Bernice Youngs Elementary School belongs, posted the following Letter to Parents this morning.

Dear Burlington Township Families:

Today we became aware of a video that was placed on the internet which has been reported in the media. The video is of a class of students singing a song about President Obama. The activity took place during Black History Month in 2009, which is recognized each February to honor the contributions of African Americans to our country. Our curriculum studies, honors and recognizes those who serve our country. The recording and distribution of the class activity were unauthorized.

If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me or Dr. King, Principal of B. Bernice Young School, directly.

Sincerely,
Dr. Christopher M. Manno,
Superintendent of Schools

So, a public school had an official lesson using impressionable children to praise Barack Obama. The song they used even co-opted lyrics from “Jesus Loves the Little Children” with Obama’s name inserted in place of God.

But wait, there is more.  Repercussions…school goes into lockdown after threats of violence. Some are NOT pleased.

“I felt this was reminiscent of 1930′s Germany, and the indoctrination of children to worship their leader,” said Robert Bowen, father of two children at Bernice Young Elementary.

YouTube  School kids taught to praise Obama at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington Township, NJ.

According to MM, the work belongs to a special Obama pal; Charisse Carney-Nunes.

The Obama school song video that she taped shows her book featured on an easel next to the children hailing Dear Leader. She promotes her book as a tool that “allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, Who will change the world? Ultimately, he realizes that he will.”

Complete and utter tripe.
