Mm, mmm, mm! Barack Hussein Obama

September 28, 2009

By now, just about everyone has seen the above video footage of New Jersey elementary-school children singing two highly politicized songs extolling the virtues of President Barack Hussein Obama. One of the videos was aired on the “Glenn Beck Show” and subsequently made the rounds on the other cable programs and YouTube, causing quite a stir.

Here are the lyrics to the two songs:


Song Number 1:    

Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

Yes!
Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama

Song Number 2:   

Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say “hooray!”

Hooray, Mr. President! You’re number one!
The first black American to lead this great nation!

Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
To make this country’s economy number one again!

Hooray Mr. President, we’re really proud of you!
And we stand for all Americans under the great Red, White, and Blue!

So continue —- Mr. President we know you’ll do the trick
So here’s a hearty hip-hooray —-

Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!

Now, some people may be wondering what the fuss is all about. After all, what is the harm in schoolchildren singing patriotic songs honoring a sitting president?

Actually, there is nothing wrong with it—in a socialist state.

In fact, in a socialist state, it is not only patriotic; it is quite necessary for the survival of that state. Socialism spreads its ideology partly through force, and partly through its manipulation of the state-controlled arts. Political indoctrination through the arts (and this includes painting, film, songs literature, etc.) must be introduced at an early age in order to obtain maximum effectiveness, and the socialists are masters at this.

Take, for example, an early sample of socialist indoctrination from Communist China:

Although unpolished by today’s cinematic standards, notice the constant stream of images of the “Great Leader” Mao Zedong, the schoolchildren, the People’s Liberation Army, and state-commissioned art, while the “socialism is good” mantra is repeated over and over in the song. This marriage of socialist imagery and song is a technique that has been shown to be very effective and is still in use today in socialist and communist tyrannies.

Take a moment to reflect on the similarities between the below lyrics from the Chinese film and the lyrics from Song Number 1, second stanza, above. For example:

Chinese Communist lyric: The entire nation is in great unity. And has raised the socialist construction to new height[s].

Song Number 1: He said that all must lend a hand to make this country strong again

The video and the song have the same sentiments, similarly phrased.

Song Number 2 is a great example of a favorite technique often employed by socialists, namely the “cult of personality,” where a larger-than-life persona is created for the leader. Note the second stanza of Song Number 2, which exclaims:

Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
To make this country’s economy number one again!

Here is how the North Koreans would do this one:

Again, the similarities between the imagery of the North Korean production and Song Number 2 are chilling.

Closer to home, we have Hugo Chavez, who, in the following video, explains quite clearly the importance his socialist state attaches to the control of the education of Venezuela’s schoolchildren:

Chavez says, “In the U.S., it is all about the individual. Here, you are all the same.” That assertion echoes the sentiments expressed in Song Number 1, third stanza, when the New Jersey children sing:

He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay

As you can see from the above examples, a primary goal of all socialist tyrants is the indoctrination of children.

In America, the mechanism for the implementation of socialist indoctrination of our children is already in place — in the form of leftist teacher’s unions like the National Education Association. And now we have a president with a “cult of personality” whose minions have quietly begun to elevate indoctrination to an art form.

    Could this be next?

    Jesus loves me! this I know, Barack loves me! this he know
    For the Bible tells me so. Teleprompter tell him so
    Little ones to Him belong; Little ones to Him belong;
    they are weak but He is strong. they are weak but He is strong

    Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Barack loves me!
    Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Barack loves me!
    Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Barack loves me!
    The Bible tells me so. Teleprompter tell him so.

    Jesus loves me! loves me still, Barack loves me! loves me still,
    ‘tho I’m very weak and ill, Long as I yield to his will,
    that I might from sin be free, That I might no more be free
    bled and died upon the tree. Bill of Rights he takes from me.

    Jesus loves me! He will stay Barack loves me! He will stay
    close beside me all the way. Close beside me all the way.
    Thou hast bled and died for me, Thou hast shilled and lied to me
    I will henceforth live for Thee. I will henceforth live for Thee.

    Interesting to note that no one is complaining about the lyrics themselves – just the ‘socialism’ connotations. Isn’t equality for all enshrined in the Constitution?
    If you are really worried about socialism, try looking at the biggest socialist program the U.S government funds – the military. Think about this; not a single defense contractor survives without 100% funding from the government. Not one.

      Steve MacGregor,
      Not a single defense contractor survives without 100% funding from the Government?
      How about GE?

        The following almost surly would survive: Boeing,Exxon,IBM, ITT,MIT,Goodrich,Rolls-Royce, Shell Oil,Motorola,Mitsubishi,
        Siemens, Verizon, Westinghouse, Penn State, Perot Systems, Raytheon, Pratt Whitney, Colt, Hewlett-Packard,Humana, Georgia Tech, and Nextel.
        Less sure but likely to survive also are Northrop-Grumman and Sikorsky.
        The real question is could WE survive without defense contracts and the military?

      Your so smart! Why didn’t we just think about that. So, If anyone takes a government contract or payment they are a socialist. You are either mistaken or deliberately misleading people. I hope it is the first. Your logic is flawed. As for equality for all, what does that have to do with a public school making children sing praises to a SITTING President? Red herring my friend.

      No, equality isn’t enshrined in the Constitution. We are all created equal. It says nothing about “work” and “pay”. Maybe a bunch of babies are the same, but once children are in and of the world, they of course have different opportunities to succeed.
      And on your second silly point, I worked for a medical device company once; we had a government contract. It was a minor segment of our business, and frankly, one of the least profitable one given the hoops one had to jump through and the price the government decided it would pay. I am sure there are hundreds of companies like that.
      Does the pen and pencil company have other business other than the military?

      The military is an example of socialism? That is the most idiotic statement I’ve ever heard and couldn’t possibly stand up to event the most basic analysis.

      National defense is a constitutionally mandated duty of the federal government, and it obviously requires funding. Maybe you’ve heard the phrase “provide for the common defense”???

      I’m not sure what you’re getting at here. The U.S. should have no military? The military should be privately funded? What?

    As children, we always want to be on the winning team whether at school or in the home. The implication that our nation is not #1 (not the winner) and not strong (can’t win) is the hidden message in the lyrics that the simple mind of a child cause uneasiness (aka stress)…an uneasiness that is now relieved by our leader, Barack Hussein Obama.

    And now a word from the Establishment Media:

    Mm, mmm, mm!
    Barack Hussein Obama

    He said that all must lend a hand
    To make this country strong again
    Mmm, mmm, mm!
    Barack Hussein Obama

    He said we must be fair today
    Equal work means equal pay
    Mmm, mmm, mm!

      I think the take-away here isn’t what Obama wants or that he sees himself as Dear Leader.

      It’s that there’s a bevy of ersatz grownups in New Jersey who feel that they need a Dear Leader, want to have a school assembly where they talk about Dear Leader, write songs about Dear Leader, and make children do it, rather than sing the songs themselves. And that there are plenty of parents in the district who grew up in these same soft-social-science-squishy-non-judgmental schools (whatever happened to ‘question authority’?) who don’t find it anti-American at all.

      It also clarifies that few of us will fight for freedom so that many will have it.

    When I grew up in USSR we were singing songs like that to Lenin. No one treated Lenin like a regular human being. He was far above. For us, elementary school kids, it was the most sacred area to go thanks to stories and songs very similar to those circulating about Obama. We felt uneasy if someone mentioned his name in the negative contest. It was sacred fear. For us everything was separated to the “bad”, the “good” and the “best of all”. Here we see an attempt to create “the best of all” by in-your-face brainwashing of the young children. What’s next: reeducation camps for grownups?

    In my nightmare I couldn’t see it’s coming to the USA. It’s more than troubling – it’s disgusting in its chutzpa to literally shove it down our throats. It’s not even close – it’s absolutely similar to the Communist propaganda in the Soviet Union.

      ElanaSe: Very true and scary.

      Yet, we needn’t look to Stalin or Kim Jung Il for a people who separate the world into “good”, “bad”, and “best of all”:

      Muhammad, the Model of Conduct (uswa hasana), the Perfect Man (al-insan al-kamil), implores his followers:

      “And because the Qur’an teaches Muslims to distrust Infidels, as they are the “most vile of created beings” (98:6) and will never be satisfied until the Muslims discard Islam (2:120). One is not take them as friends or protectors (3:28; 5:51).”

      …because Muslims, according to the Koran (3:110), are “the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong,”

      See? Everyone understand now why this is not a religious problem, but a freedom and a human rights problem? When you don’t understand how the Left can support these institutions and political entities, just read the Q’uran. It’s a user manual for the fascism.

        You’re right of course.
        And still it’s hard to relate Islam to Obama’s propaganda:

        1) He’s a secular leader – as communists are.
        2) The older generations remember and know well the Cold War era and can relate to that easier than to the relatively new big scale Muslim threat.
        3) Islam is a system of beliefs. Obama is just one person without any real achievements (for better or for worse). It’s a building of cult of personality we’re witnessing here – and that’s what I meant in my first post.

          The left is a secular communist machine sympathetic to Jihadists. They look the other way so the Jihadists can create the “emergencies” they need scare people into being complicit. When the dust settles their hands are clean to the ignorant observer. When someone brings attention to the fact that they were in control (therefore accountable), they simply blame Bush.

    It is amazing that the principal of the school found nothing wrong with the program, and was more than happy to repeat it again.

    I was born in Argentina during the Peron era and extended my stay there until the initial Juntas.
    Those songs and the Peron and Evita “dear leaders” songs we had to learn in school are identical.
    After reading and listening to the songs in question it is totally clear that the US bought itself a new and improved “dear leader” and now the PEOPLE will have to deal with that very dangerous condition.
    Stop that fast my friends because the extremists in the Saetoro Obama aggregate will brainwash many kids which then are used to control households as in all of those types of regimes.

    My first paper in college was in Comparative Government, and i wrote about the Soviet preschool system and how it socialized children.

    What they are doing, is the first wave of re-education in our public school system. This is how young minds are molded to believe in and support the political system.

    The Soviet Union collapsed when it’s oppressive and controlling system denied it’s people access to the rapidly changing West and the information that was openly and freely available to all — and they fell so far behind that they couldn’t hope to keep up with our innovative system that generated new products and technologies and jobs. Ronald Reagan knew how to push the rusting hulk of a nation over the edge.

    How will this play out? Will they be indoctrinated, filtering everything through the government-as-provider lense, or will the freedom of information available awaken young minds to the fallacy of what they’ve been taught? I fear it will become their religion, and an inexorable part of their values and character. God help us.

      MMM, your description sounds eerily familiar to me. Socialist US Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) moved to VT in the 60’s, became mayor of the largest city in 1982 and immediately got support for out of state students to vote in local elections. He hasn’t lost an election since.

      Vermont is one of the highest taxed, least business friendly places in the nation. And 2 legislative session ago the legislature passed preschool for 3 year olds!!!

    The lyrics sung by the school children are alarming. I remember how that in the fifties, when Chairman Mao was in power, children were taken from their parents and placed in boarding schools. In addition, there were those children who were so indoctrinated and brainwashed with Mao’s communism and Chairman Mao their Leader, that they were empowered as low as age eight to accuse their parents. The scenes were large stadiums where the judges sat ready to condemn those parents they had targetted. On the testimonies of their own children, who knew the fate awaiting, those parents were killed. This information came from a famous English missionary who observed it before she escaped from China with quite a few children. I heard the tapes she recorded.
    Could this ever happen in our day?

    Our pledge of allegence is being shunned because of the words “under God,” but praising a man who is destroying the dollar and our country is okay? Get off my planet!
