Build-A-Climate-Scare: Why You Should Boycott Build-A-Bear
But when your unsuspecting tot logs on and hops a virtual train to the North Pole
you should know that he or she will be informed by Santa Claus that Christmas may be canceled this year due to Global Warming. Below is part two of the 3-part video.
This enrages me! How many children are being scared about everything in the world? How many lessons, which should be just simple, informative lessons, say on animals, are turned into some kind of class warfare lesson? For instance, when children learn about animals, they can’t just learn about animals anymore, they need to be informed that poachers may kill said animal. When they learn about the environment, they have to be told: yes, children, man is destroying it.
And this: to scare children about Santa Claus!!!
Of course the left targets children. And they pair their arguments with emotional topics. Why, global warming is out to attack polar bears and Santa Claus! The left must do this, and they must target children, because their theories, including and especially global warming, are not a vigorous science and, as we have seen, do not have reliable data buoying them.
The result? Other than a bunch of brainwashed children, some (perhaps many) of which will seek facts and see through the rubbish, children become scared of the world. A heavy handed message at every corner telling them the world is out to get them can produce no other result. And they will be bitter and elitist, after all it is dirty, evil human beings who are poaching and destroying the environment. I know many people like this already–all of which subscribe to some type of victim ideology, be it environmentalism or feminism.
The Ones Speech: A Display of Malignant Narcissism
The speech is a total display of malignant narcissism. Not only does Obama talk about himself excessively, the speech seems to be aimed at students who probably remind him of himself when he was young and encourages those students to be like, well, himself. Asking students to help out their community is asking them to follow his foot stepshe being a self-described community organizer. But more importantly, directing the speech to the students with discipline problems and telling them that they, too, could become the next Michael Jordan or inventor of the iPod is encouraging the Presidents one enduring trait: utter pretentiousness. A malignant narcissist is one who is troubled somehow but instead of deciding they need to change, they want to change the world to be like them. This speech was that: its purpose to turn students into pretentious, community-minded, liberal mini-Obamas.
Let me paraphrase the speech Obama is going to give to school children tomorrow:
“Learning and going to school sucks, right? But try to stick with it, OK? Now let me talk about me and my schooling and what I’ve talked about in speeches about education. You might be good enough to do some things, maybe, if there is some magical skill you were endowed with, so you should try writing English papers and doing math and stuff to see if you are. Oh, and none of this is for yourself, it’s all for your country. You are letting down homeless people if you don’t do well in school! By the way, my father left when I was little and I was lonely. Oh, and I smoked crack [ok, that isn’t in there verbatim]. But now I’ll say some things to retain my popularity like telling you to practice and work hard and evoke the founding fathers, who by the way my politics are completely opposite of”
It’s pretty obvious who the speech is mostly designed for with statements like this:
I know that sometimes, you get the sense from TV that you can be rich and successful without any hard work — that your ticket to success is through rapping or basketball or being a reality TV star, when chances are, you’re not going to be any of those things.
I felt like I was reading something out of Dangerous Minds.
The view he has of students is that they all just hate school and just want to screw around playing video games. And Obama is going to inspire these particular children, who hate school and talk back to teachers, to be the next person to do something equivalent to putting a man on the moon? And he isn’t going to inspire them by telling them exactly how it will benefit them but guilt them into doing well so they can support their community? Indeed, sounds like he is trying to turn school children into him: pretentious, self-absorbed “community organizers.”

A Different Lesson Plan for the President’s Speech
Just in case you dont feel like following the Department of Educations Menu of Classroom Activities [for] President Obamas Address to Students Across America on September 8, here are ten suggested alternative questions to explore with students from pre-K through high school.
1. President and Mrs. Obama have chosen to send their daughters to private school, at a cost of about $29,000 a year for each girl. What choices, if any, should other parents have about where their children go to school and about how to pay for educating their children?
2. Why is it important that the president and other elected officials, like the mayor, senators, members of Congress, or the governor listen to what citizens say, whether in town hall meetings or in any other form of citizen communication? Why is what citizens say important to these elected officials?

We can always dream of a world where teachers didn’t have to “teach to the test” (for standardized testing) and could have more freedom in what they choose to teach, like …. more about Obama!! Except the President seems to be mandating lessons on himself. If this isn’t blatant malignant narcissism, I don’t know what is.
