Residents of New Haven Connecticut should be ecstatic knowing tax dollars are moving mountains and inspiring achievement in an army of “Obama scholars.”
Lincoln Bassett Middle School in New Haven, Connecticut has received a “great school rating” of two on a scale of 1 to 10. Therefore, it was no surprise that a classroom full of impressionable boys were led in a chant by a cheer leading gentleman in a black kufi. We’re talking “involved parents and successful kids.”
Standing on the sidelines at the event was a group of suit-jacketed school administrators who attended the chant to observe how being pumped up with pure drivel changes the lives of inner city kids.
Joseph Goebbels, the Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany once said:
The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.
With that in mind, watching the impromptu assembly gives fresh insight into the concepts of “hope and change.”
The classroom mantra appears to be something that had been practiced prior to the spectators arriving. It is comforting to know school time in New Haven is being spent practicing meaningful academic rote.
The video depicts a positive thinking, hyped-up, muscular Muslim teacher exhorting a classroom full of uncomfortable teens to repeat the following words:
I can be anything, anything, anything I want to be, a doctor, lawyer, judge, journalist, writer, firefighter, principal, president – president – president.
The only thing the video omitted was R. Kelly singing I Believe I Can Fly in the background:
If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it
Having a committed male Muslim mentor and emulating Barack Obama is one way to ensure New Haven children will avoid deception and know they can achieve “it,” whatever “it” is.
Why? Because New Haven Middle School students, who should have been in high school three years ago, are Obama scholars.
