I was reading over the speech President Obama is going to present to defenseless schoolchildren today when I thought back to one of the most asinine things I heard anyone saying during the fervor over this back-to-school address to our nation’s future: “The president gets to speak to my children and I don’t get a chance to defend myself.”
It would be hilarious were it not for the fact he was dead serious. He had no doubt in his mind the speech was going to be pure, socialist indoctrination and he would have no chance to protect his kids from it. Leave the flawed logic aside (Dude, you’re not under attack and there’s no reason, as a parent, you won’t be able to talk to your kids about what they saw) and let’s look at ultimately what he has to defend himself against:
“Every single one of you has something you’re good at. Every single one of you has something to offer. And you have a responsibility to yourself to discover what that is. …
But at the end of the day, the circumstances of your life – what you look like, where you come from, how much money you have, what you’ve got going on at home – that’s no excuse for neglecting your homework or having a bad attitude. That’s no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class, or dropping out of school. That’s no excuse for not trying.
Where you are right now doesn’t have to determine where you’ll end up. No one’s written your destiny for you. Here in America, you write your own destiny. You make your own future. That’s what young people like you are doing every day, all across America. …
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.”
Yeah, bro, it’s a shame you won’t be able to defend yourself from these heinous messages President Obama is using to assault your children.
