Organizing for America comes to high school

January 31, 2010

It’s interesting how the White House claims it isn’t involved with the activities of Organizing For America, yet the official site for the group is housed at barackobama.com.

You cannot possibly claim neutrality in this situation.  The group’s purpose it to push Barack Obama’s agenda and their site is housed on Barack Obama’s official website.  He might not sit in on staff meetings, but clearly there is at least a silent endorsement of the group’s activities.

One of which happens to be recruiting at the high school level.  A reader of Atlas Shrugs (h/t Gateway Pundit) has a daughter in an Ohio high school who was given recruiting information in her government class.  On what planet is it ok for a group with such a clear and biased agenda to send their message into our high schools?  When did it become acceptable for a teacher to take time out of his or her day to pass out political propaganda?  Because that’s basically what this is.

Just get a load of some of the recommended reading:

  • Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky
  • The New Organizers, Zack Exley
  • Stir It Up: Lessons from Community Organizing and Advocacy, Rinku Sen
  • Obama Field Organizers Plot a Miracle, Zack Exley, Huffington Post
  • Dreams of My Father Chicago Chapters, Barack Hussein Obama

I won’t even dispute the right of this group to peddle its message and recruit people.  But they don’t have the right to send their message into our schools, where our kids are supposed to be getting an education, not being indoctrinated into political ideology.
