UPDATE 9-9: WATCH SPEECH HERE.Sad. Pathetic. Idiots.
Fringe sites are saying Obama's going after the children now. This back-to-school speech on Sept. 8 at 12 pm eastern, being broadcast on CSPAN, is their indoctrination, according to the racists (rightwing). They say Obama has passed a youth brigade bill (for you and me it funds the Peace Corps, AmeriCorps...). For the wingnuts, they believe the bill -- called the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act -- which encourages volunteerism, is part of Obama's socialist plot. It's strange that volunteering is such a strange notion to the rightwing. At the Hannity forum, they're really scared and useless. Some teachers are turning the speech into a teachable moment. Go figure. No one is telling teachers that they have to make their classes watch Obama's speech. But the racists think otherwise. They're having a meltdown. Malkin, Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, the whole lot of them. They've lost it, with Beck leading the way down the nut hole. From the clips that I've seen, I'm convinced Beck's headed for a nervous breakdown. Fox needs to pull that man off the air and get him some help.
It should also be noted that conservative Newt Gingrich is also in on education reform.
