Union Encourages Teachers to Brainwash for Barack

Only a vast brainwashing apparatus explains how the Left has come this close to installing an extremely dangerous radical in the White House. The most obvious component is the brazenly partisan mainstream media, but in the long view, the education establishment has been doing just as much damage to the national consciousness. An example of how teachers unions have been helping usher in the bleak Age of the Obamessiah:

An e-mail distributed by a Virginia teachers union encouraged members to bring politics into the classroom by wearing blue in support of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama and simultaneously suggested that the union’s voter registration efforts include those “you teach.”

The Virginia Education Association (VEA) e-mail drew strong criticism Wednesday from elected Republican officials and some residents after the state Republican Party obtained a copy.

VEA President Kitty Boitnott arrogantly shrugged off the ensuing outrage, dismissing complaints about political brainwashing as “ridiculous.”

Kitty has her own blog, where you can read all about her nonpartisan devotion to enlightening the children. It features this shot of herself with the America-bashing Michelle Obama, whom the Obama campaign has wisely kept locked in the cellar lately:


Gushes Ms. Boitnut:

Since becoming president of the Virginia Education Association, I have already experienced numerous high points. On September 17, I got to attend a special event hosting Michelle Obama. Not only did I get to hear her speak, but I got a chance to meet her in person!

Hold on, it gets still more exciting. BOO even introduced Kitty to the crowd!

I think that the fact that I was one of the three people she chose to acknowledge in that forum speaks to the value that the Obama campaign places on our association and their need for our support. As I told the reps at the Fairfax Education Association later in the day, I believe that everyone recognizes the power that we have as an organization — except perhaps we ourselves.

Wrong. If normal people had a clue what kind of power these kooks have and what they want to use it for, they would pull their kids out of public schools.
