Obama's speech to schoolchildren, annotated

Share on Nextdoor


…What you’re learning in school today will determine whether we as a nation can meet our greatest challenges in the future.


If you don't listen to ME today, YOUR FUTURE IS IN JEOPARDY. This is clearly a threat, not just to the children but TO THEIR PARENTS.


You’ll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to cure diseases like cancer and AIDS…


Do little schoolchildren need to hear about SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE?


…and to develop new energy technologies and protect our environment.


Of course, he had to get to "GREEN."


I did some things I’m not proud of, and got in more trouble than I should have.


Will the Obama machine EVER COME CLEAN about what this 'TROUBLE' really was?


But I was fortunate. I got a lot of second chances and had the opportunity to go to college, and law school, and follow my dreams. My wife, our First Lady Michelle Obama, has a similar story. Neither of her parents had gone to college, and they didn’t have much. But they worked hard, and she worked hard, so that she could go to the best schools in this country.


HARVARD elitists. NUFF SAID.


Maybe you live in a neighborhood where you don’t feel safe, or have friends who are pressuring you to do things you know aren’t right.


Slamming THE RIGHT every chance he gets.


You make your own future.


That’s what young people like you are doing every day, all across America.


Young people like Jazmin Perez, from Roma, Texas. Jazmin didn’t speak English when she first started school. Hardly anyone in her hometown went to college, and neither of her parents had gone either. But she worked hard, earned good grades, got a scholarship to Brown University, and is now in graduate school, studying public health, on her way to being Dr. Jazmin Perez.


FREE HEALTHCARE FOR IMMIGRANTS?


…That’s why today, I’m calling on each of you to set your own goals for your education – and to do everything you can to meet them.


Set your OWN GOALS? And where do TEACHERS AND PARENTS fit into this? He's springing ANARCHY on our schools.


Maybe you’ll decide to stand up for kids who are being teased or bullied because of who they are or how they look, because you believe, like I do, that all kids deserve a safe environment to study and learn.


ANTI-BULLY=PRO-GAY. Could the CODE WORDS be any more TRANSPARENT?


Stay home from school when you don’t feel well, so we can keep people from getting the flu this fall and winter.


He is attempting to PANIC FAMILIES and UNDERMINE THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM.


You won’t click with every teacher. Not every homework assignment will seem completely relevant to your life right this minute. And you won’t necessarily succeed at everything the first time you try.


DEFEATISM.


JK Rowling’s first Harry Potter book was rejected twelve times before it was finally published.


Harry 'SATAN'S MINION' Potter


If you get in trouble, that doesn’t mean you’re a troublemaker, it means you need to try harder to behave. If you get a bad grade, that doesn’t mean you’re stupid, it just means you need to spend more time studying.


He is excusing kids for FAILURE AND CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR.


Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. I do that every day.


Encouraging WEAKNESS.


Find an adult you trust – a parent, grandparent or teacher; a coach or counselor – and ask them to help you stay on track to meet your goals.


Encouraging PEDOPHILES.


The story of America isn’t about people who quit when things got tough. It’s about people who kept going, who tried harder, who loved their country too much to do anything less than their best.


It’s the story of students who sat where you sit 250 years ago, and went on to wage a revolution and found this nation.


Encouraging REVOLUTION.


Students who sat where you sit 20 years ago who founded Google, Twitter and Facebook and changed the way we communicate with each other.


Encouraging DANGEROUS TEXTING.


What will a president who comes here in twenty or fifty or one hundred years say about what all of you did for this country?


Because I am President for Life. I WILL BE WATCHING.


I’m working hard to fix up your classrooms and get you the books, equipment and computers you need to learn.


Propaganda for the DEMOCRATS' EDUCATIONAL PLATFORM.


But you’ve got to do your part too. So I expect you to get serious this year. I expect you to put your best effort into everything you do. I expect great things from each of you. So don’t let us down – don’t let your family or your country or yourself down. Make us all proud. I know you can do it.


Because I now CONTROL YOUR MINDS.


Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.


GOD SAVE US FROM BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.

The White House has released a transcript of the controversial speech President Obama is slated to make Sept. 8 at a high school in Virginia. To save the pundits the trouble of analyzing the text point by point, we've gone ahead and inserted some useful opposition talking points. (Read aloud with air of barely controlled panic and angry incredulity, à la Glenn Beck.)

…no matter what grade you’re in, some of you are probably wishing it were still summer, and you could’ve stayed in bed just a little longer this morning…

He's pretending this is a speech about helping kids stay in school, but HE'S ENCOURAGING THEM TO BE TRUANTS!

I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived in Indonesia…

INDONESIA=Islam=secret Muslim anti-American agenda

…for a few years, and my mother didn’t have the money to send me where all the American kids went to school.

His mother REFUSED to have him study with Americans
