Signing Up Schoolchildren for Obama

Today, I'll give you more details about President Obama's plans to organize schoolchildren to support his political agenda. An 11th-grade teacher in Ohio passed out the sign-up sheets, which start with this instruction: "Organizing for America, the successor organization to Obama for America, is building on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda of change." The application explains that this national internship program is "working to make the change we fought so hard for in 2008 a reality in 2010 and beyond."

The students who sign up to become interns will be trained in the goals and language of the left: anti-war agitation, anti-capitalism, Karl Marx, Lenin, [Bill] Ayers, gay and lesbian promotion, global warming, soft-on-jihad, and illegal immigration.

The nine-week "National Intern Organizer Curriculum" is very specific in describing the tactics that interns will be taught. It includes these components: "Building Relationships and Building Teams, Mobilizing to Win On the Issues, [and] Health Care Service Project." The sign-up sheet states that the "purpose" of training these students is "to build community" among the interns and teach them "to be leaders in OFA's organizing work." Passage of Obamacare is one of this intern project's major goals. The curriculum promises to provide "insight on the strategy and plan behind the health care campaign" and to "further motivate students to work on the issue."

Job prospects may be bleak for many Americans, but they will be rosy for alumni of Obama's intern program. After the students have been fully trained as Alinsky-style community organizers, they will be eligible for jobs in Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, or Learn and Serve America, all organizations funded by taxpayers' money.
