Increasingly, we read disturbing articles about Barack Obama's messiah-like qualities. How he can "mesmerize" a crowd, and about the euphoric effects of being in his presence. There is even a spoof blog, in which a recent blog entry was entitled Precious Children Sing to Our Glorious Leader! in which children at the Colburn school (a 501-c-3, which does not allow political activity or they lose their tax exempt status, by the way) were recruited by a music teacher and Hollywood types to produce a propaganda video at the teacher's home using children to sing Obama's praises for political gain. This did not go unnoticed, being so creepy. Other shades of Hitler Youth surfaced immediately on the internet, old 1930's clips came up on YouTube showing glowing children's faces singing praises and hymns to their glorious leader, Hitler. It's not such a stretch if you watch the clips from today and the old ones side by side.
And this weekend we have clips of inner city youth marching in formation, in school, wearing military cammo, chanting and praising their glorious leader, Obama. Worse, they pray to his name, and call him "Alpha and Omega." For the folks out there reading this who don't know the bible, only GOD is the Alpha and the Omega. He says so in Revelation 2:13: ""I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end."
Apparently the Assistant Dean was contacted, who said that this "regiment" was stopped because the school was uncomfortable with a teacher pushing his political agenda. Oy. Like that is even a question.
Using children for political gain is terrible. Using them to sing praises to and worship a political candidate is blasphemy. Have we learned nothing from history?
