I am Proud of our President! Republicans have Gone Over the Top in Ridiculing a Little Children's Song About our President.

I am standing up and saying, I am proud of our President Obama! I watched him yesterday as he spoke before the United Nations. He was Brilliant. President Obama signaled a sharp break with the policies of former President Bush and echoed the themes of his own presidential campaign. He urged world leaders to act together to combat global warming, nuclear proliferation, extreme poverty, and continuing conflict in the Middle East. The audience rewarded and honored our President with applause, eight times during his speech. Applause is extremely rare at the United Nations.

I have been proud of previous Presidents. I remember my 5th grade class being so excited and motivated about the Presidential election in 1960. We studied both candidates. We were split almost 50 - 50, with half of our class supporting Candidate Kennedy, and the other half supporting candidate Nixon. I, of course, supported Kennedy. My sister and I saw him when he visited Lansing, our State Capital. I wrote to him and asked for an autographed picture, which he sent me. I was so proud when he was elected. I remember his speech. All of us watched his speech in school. "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." I remember talking about his speech in class and asking ourselves what we could do to support our President - support change in America. We all wanted to help him.

The President also started a Physical Fitness program. We started exercising in school (no choice, mandatory, but we all liked it). I remember the song we were told to sing, "Give that chicken fat, Back to the chicken, And don't be chicken again. No, don't be chicken again." The song, Chicken Fat, also known as “The Youth Fitness Song” was composed for President Kennedy’s Physical Fitness Program. Recordings of this song were sent to school districts throughout the United States to accompany the official U.S. Physical Fitness program of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness.

I remember many of the President's policies and being so motivated. I believed in equal rights for all, the Civil Rights Movement and Women's Rights. I remember thinking about joining the Peace Corps.

I remember sitting in the living room with my whole family, watching TV as Jackie Kennedy gave us a tour of the White House. I remember thinking how beautiful she was, and how she spoke before world leaders in Spanish, in French, and thinking, I want to speak other languages and learn more about the world.

The sixties were a magical time. The country was proud. The world was proud. We were Patriotic, Motivated for Peace and Equality. I loved those times and I long for us all to be Patriotic, honor our President and joined as a nation again -- in equality!

I saw a bit of the same through other Presidencies. I remember kids sending Jelly Beans to President Reagan. I remember Bush I and II reading to children. Reagan, both Bushes and Clinton spoke to children in school about Reading and Education.

Knowing and living through all of this history, I am totally, totally appalled by what Fox News and Republican Right Wingers are doing to chastise and belittle school children who sang a song about our President. These teabagger, deather, birthers have gone beyond the pale. On youtube footage, these psychos have spliced in footage from Korean dictator Kim Jong. It is just deplorable.

I am showing this video to show you how INSANE these Beck/Hannity supported teabagger, deather, birthers are. Additionally, here are the actual lyrics to the cute song the little children wrote in support of our President. They took these children's beautiful, creative words and tried to turn them into something else. These extreme right wingers are despicable.

First: Here are the cute lyrics created by the children:
"we're going to spread happiness, we're gonna spread freedom.
Obama's gonna change it. Obama's gonna lead em.
Now we'll all lift our voice to say, we with all our heart.
For our children, for our families, Our nation all joined as one."
"yes, we can. can. can."

Next: Here is what the despicable, evil right wingers turned them into:

All I can say is, Thank you Glenn Beck for proving HATRED survives in your depths of depravity! Stop passing it around! Leave the little Children alone!!

Here is a 2nd video, 1st the lyrics:
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
He said that we must take a stand, To make sure everyone gets a chance
He said red, yellow, black or white, All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm! Barack Hussein Obama
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!

Now here is how the crazee teabaggers wrote about it on youtube and fox:
Just as the young children of Nazi Germany sang to Adolph Hitler..We are now teaching our children to sing a song to the new fascist leader of the USSA. (funny how this was filmed in June but suddenly this is posted on youtube with these despicable words and FOX immediately reacts!)

I have ONE Question to FOX News, Hannity, OReilly and Beck:

What happened to your big push during the Bush years that YOU CANNOT criticize the commander-in-chief during wartime? What happened to that???

Thanks for your opportune informations, opinions and stories.


The First and Greatest Welfare Babies in the World - Cry Babies that were given the Electromagnetic Spectrum - And also Hate Merchants - Freedom of Speech

I receive some comments of People telling me that I am an enemy of Free Speech because I criticize Glenn Beck or Ruch Limbaugh, etc ...

I think that it is a good thing to characterize these guys as irresponsible Hate Merchants and their Employers and Patrons too.

It is not an attack on Freedom of Speech or First Ammendment or Whatever Philosophy ... I am not asking jail for them. I am just promoting Truth and Sobriety, instead of Lies, Madness and Verbal Intemperance to become Rich with Hatred.

I am just showing how Imbecile, Idiotic, Hypocrite and Clownish they are ( with weeping and sobbing ! ... crying and yelling ! and interjections of "God Almighty !!" foolishness - They are Ridiculous Histrionics )

They are the First and Greatest Welfare Babies in the World, because the Electromagnetic Spectrum ( inside cables or airwaves ) has been given to them. ( Forever ??? )

A Public Good like the Electromagnetic Frequencies was given to a few so that they may become Multimillionaires. And they use it to promote Hate, Fear and Racism. And to promote their own corrupt economic interests.

Peter Joseph Swanson is a good friend in

He is a writer of Fantasy and Children's Books and is always fighting for causes of Kindness and Humanity ( Against Hatred, Racism, Homophobia, etc ... )

There is a group in called "Obama Sucks" that portrays Michelle Obama as a monster with Horrible Teeth of a predator Vampire like Dracula.

And that portrays Barack Obama as a mad scientist ( Doctr Jekyll and Mr Hide ) doing horrible experiments with America.

They don't respect the First Lady.

And my friend Peter Joseph charges against this group of Bigots and Racists and denounces them here ( With lots of comments from friends of PJS ) :

A group for the KKK on Gather, "Obama Sucks"

The cult of the personality

If you think this is ok, then I expect you would think it is ok if the kids had been singing wondrous songs about Bush too. Right?

Let's do some research to see if there was a Hitler ditty. If there was, that is the point. Major movements begin with the gullible who see nothing askew in the little things that finally capture a party and a nation.

Dee said...

I think it is very patriotic for children to sing we are going to help our president make our country strong again, fair, equal rights...

I remember talking/singing similarly to help JFK, "what WE can DO for our Country."

I wonder what the BeckBots if Obama came out with a Physcial Fitness program like JFK did: President Obama's Physical Fitness program.

We sang all in unison and exercised to tapes the President sent: "Give that chicken fat back to the chicken." In two step, harmony. I can see the BeckBots crying and blathering now!

Dee said...

Sorry. You are WRONG AGAIN Ultima. There was NO massive U.S. demonstrations or posters or marches like the teabagger marches depicting Bush as Hitler.

I did the Google search as you suggested: Bush = Hitler. Here is what I found:

1. 2008 Poster from Europe
2. 2005 some photoshop on a blog that was removed.
3. 2009 some photoshop on a blog saying there was previous comparisons to Bush as there is to Obama.
4. 2004 Fox news article complaining on an ad entry in a contest (which was never aired and was removed quickly from their site) comparing bush to hitler and the outrage various groups provided because of it. (Where is Fox's OUTRAGE NOW??)

Dee said...

I liked the songs the children sang. They show motivation and patriotism.

However, I find the twisting and outrageous video overlays by the BeckBots absolutely treasonous and hatefilled!

Great Love for the Family in the White House. Mr Obama will surprise us with his Resilence and Endurance under stress. Great President

I have always been a Great Fan of Mr Obama. I have always predicted that he will be a Great President. And I am sure that he is performing very well with some of his caution and prudence.

Mr Obama is not a bigot to continue the two wrong wars forever ... He is professorial, rational, cerebral, reflective, brainy, brilliant, intelligent, studious, he is knowing, he knows.

Being a Black in America may in many cases favor an introverted personality when dealing with all the other Races. I think that Mr Obama may have some introverted, controlled, contained and reserved personality.

And that means Psychological Reserves for crisis, endurance, resilience, etc ...

I think that Mr Obamas has the ability to recover quickly from bad events, bad changes, or misfortunes. ... He can withstand hardship or stress.

Mr Obama will surprise us !!

I am a believer in Mr Obama and his beautiful family. Lots of Love for Michelle Obama and the two beautiful daughters.....

Ok Dee, I bite.....

Did the "Conservatives" throw produce at Obama's limo to the White House?

Did they turn their back on the motorcade?

While i agree that Bush was a douche for his policies and tactics, what I'm seeing now is tit-for-tat by the Democrats.

You don't become stronger by being like the enemy you demonize.....

Proletariat Defender said...

Dee, ever tried a Google image search?

Personally, I find most of them funny....
