They showed the video below about public service in a school in Utah. Right winders are calling it “radical leftist propaganda.” Watch the video for yourself. I guess it’s “leftist” because there are black people in it? Is not using too much gas, or not using plastic bags “leftist?”
Parents upset over ‘leftist propaganda’ video – Salt Lake Tribune,
Children at Eagle Bay Elementary School in Farmington were shown a short video called “I pledge” on Aug. 28. The video opens with an image of President Barack Obama and part of a speech in which he says, “Let us summon a new spirit of patriotism, of responsibility where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other.” The video then features celebrities making pledges about how they will help the president and the world — and that’s where some say the problem lies.
. . . “Showing the video in a public school is completely inappropriate,” said Jennifer Cieslewicz, whose daughter is a first-grader at the school. “I don’t believe a video such as this that promotes certain values should be shown to elementary students, especially without parents being aware. ”

Wow, that video is like something you would expect to see in an Islamic or Communist country where they are brainwashing their children. Creepy.
Here’s the video:
Update – Barack Obama is President of the United States. Deal with it.
