Quote# 76389

"Now, I saw that speech Obama gave to children, nothing particularly radical jumped out at me. I really think people are overreacting. It was a lot of encouraging children to get an education and work hard and not let other people convince them they're doomed to failure. How is that a bad thing? Shouldn't we want our children to go to do the best they can? Or am I missing something?"

This sounds psychological to me Who is dooming America's children to failure?

Sounds a little Hitler-esque to me.

Seeker in the Dark

I can see why raptards would be against their children getting an education, but what does Hitler have to do with it?!?

Who is dooming America's children to failure?

Fundies like the Texas Board of Education, Answers in Genesis and the Creation Institute.

Too easy

You meatwhistles invoke hitler into everything, don't you?

Seems like you're the ones with the desire for a new hitler...

Think or GTFO

You know, if you have any real problems with anything Obama has done, or his policies or whatever, go ahead. I'm not entirely satisfied with him so far either.

But this is just grasping for straws that aren't there.

Your response sounds a little Howard-esque to me.

I swear, Obama could walk out into the Rose Garden in April, off handedly remark about it being a lovely spring day, and the RR crowd would talk about his upcoming persecution of Christians with hay fever.

Hell, I'm convinced that if Obama declared a personal awakening and that he was now 100% opposed to abortion, there'd be a segment of the Rapture Ready crowd that would join Planned Parenthood.

"Yeah, he gets the children to respect him so that when he does say something radical they think to themselves "I saw this guy is 1st grade and he was really nice and I will do anything he says". That's the problem!!"


That's the best (yet) defense of RR paranoia. Don't even think of letting the kids 'trust' this guy - regardless of what he's saying *now*, he *might* say something 'radical' years from now, and they might believe him! Oh noes!!

Oh No! The success of our children is a bad thing!

9/28/2010 5:24:52 AM


What. How is encouraging people to work hard and getting an education "Hitler-esque"?

9/28/2010 5:32:53 AM


Well, it's better than "is our children learning?"

Double post - my bad.

9/28/2010 5:55:11 AM


Yup, sounds psychological to me too.

Psychological problem in your part to be more certain. And no, playing with RaptureRetads isn't going to do any good for you. Maybe, instead, you could go outside and meet the real world. It misses you.

Doubting Thomas

Who is dooming America's children to failure?

Probably those who want to replace evolutionary theory with a talking snake & magic tree.

Sounds a little Hitler-esque to me.

Sounds a little Godwin-esque to me.

"Who is dooming America'a children to failure?"
Fundies like you mostly.

9/28/2010 6:22:07 AM


These people REALLY need to calm down, they're going to injure themselves at this rate.

9/28/2010 6:22:54 AM


You've gone beyond overusing Hitler now it's just gotten absolutely silly.

The idiots at RR are getting pretty predictable these days. Seems like we're always seeing posts like "Obama said ___________. That sounds like something Hitler would have said."

9/28/2010 7:04:05 AM


"This sounds psychological to me"

You are dense, aren't you.

"Who is dooming America's children to failure?"

Their parents, the abomination that is the public education system in this country, various media and society at large.

Just off the top of my head.

"Sounds a little Hitler-esque to me."

I don't believe I recall any footage of Hitler encouraging any such thing. Still, even if he did, so what? Hitler was a vegetarian and enjoyed painting. Should we ban those too because Hitler did it?

9/28/2010 7:06:06 AM


Godwin = automatic fail
Only a Rapture Retard would see getting an education as a bad thing. Of course, knowledge is the best defence against their bullshit. No one with a functioning brain believes in the Rapture.

A little further up the thread we find:

I opted my kids out of the first speach. I sent a letter to their school saying that I did not agree with the socialist agenda of the usurper and my children would not be indoctrinated into the obama youth. My daughter told me her teacher gasped when she read the letter.

A parent objecting to their child attending a 'speach' in favour of education would make me gasp too, let alone the rest of the nonsense.

9/28/2010 7:32:11 AM


Well, thank goodness that at least one poster over there has some bloody sense!

If I'd had a speech like that from the president at the time, or anyone in a position of authority actually, I think I would have done a better job in school.

Now for your more typical RR poster, who does NOT have any sense (sense of irony included):

....and thats why my kids are in a christian school!!!! My kids will never ever go to a public school, if I can't aford christian school than I will homeschool. I will NOT let my kids be brainwashed!!!!

Who is dooming America's children to failure?

Gee, I dunno, the ones that say the "worldly" education is worthless as they will be Raptured so any effort to better themselves is for nothing?

carmen sandiego

the other day I was visiting my parents and found an interesting permission slip on the table.
my youngest sister goes to a public middle school, and it was a form for parents to sign if they did NOT want their child watching the presidential address to students.

WTF. he's the freakin' president talking about freakin' education, it's not a PG13 movie.
