Video: You Won't Believe You're In AmericaOct. 01, 2008
When Mo Rocca thinks liberalism is over the top, then even our skeptics have to give us some credence when we point it out. Of late, we've pounded the insidious politically correct indoctrination that passes for education these days, and not just on college campuses, either, but also in elementary schools — which leads to intolerance and the stamping out of opposing opinion, much less any semblance of critical thinking, and cultivates judgement based on emotion, not thought. We pointed out one especially heinous act of it yesterday, when a Brandeis University professor of 48 years, with a spotless record, may be fired simply for stating a widely known historical fact. Now there is a widely distributed Internet video of a teacher who has indoctrinated her very young students into a chorus singing a song, not of praise, but of worship to our next great leader. View it here, and read Rocca's commentary ("Let Us Pray . . . To Obama?")on how extreme the left has become when it goes this far. There's also an onslaught of video commentary to show how outraged people are by this. (Click here to see a list of versions of this video and on this topic.)
Your first thought is that you are not in America. It's a common thought, as this YouTube commentator shares (view here). This "messiah" worship is no joke any more, if it ever was. It's incredibly ironic that those on the left who excoriate Christians for our beliefs have found a hero they place in the Biblical pantheon. Unless we change the culture, we may be in for a long, dark period of mind-numbed idol worship.
