Screaming on the Inside

Pledging and Propoganda from the White House and Obama Supporters

Posted by madjillmom on September 3, 2009

I am enjoying the continuing evidence that the White House and Obama supporters have no ability nor historical perspective on anything.  Three things have happened in the last week that make this abundantly clear.

  • Hollywood puts out a Public Service Announcement that shows many celebrities pledging to do something to “be a servant to the President”.  It is creepy and there is now a parody of it with Obama as the Borg.  Some brilliant person plays it for schoolchildren in Utah.
  • The Dept. of Education puts out some creepy teachable moments crapola to augment Pres. Obama’s speech to school children next week.  In the suggestions are questions like “what are you going to do to help the President?” and “how did he inspire you?”.   It seemed to be slanted toward being a good person by helping Obama rather than being a good  person or citizen because it serves to better yourself.  The Education Dept. backed off the creepy language, but only after the storm blew up.
  • The White House was on a phone call with the National Endowment for the Arts sometime this summer, where they or the Arts people suggested that there should be a preference for politically correct artwork with themes such as  the environment, global climate change, or Healthcare Reform.  If Bush had requested funding for art projects favoring Anti-missile technology, or pro-capitalism artwork, there would have been an uproar.  Nothing out of the MSM.

This is all played out on a background of Obama calling for a civilian force with equal funding to the military spending.  Just more evidence that those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.  Honest pundits of the left might say it was tone deaf.  But to those of us to the right, it was just another scary moment in slouching toward something really scary.

Regarding government funding for the arts, they should only occasionally pay for a mural on a post office wall.  They would mess it up but it is the only funding the government needs to pay to art.
