Parents upset over Obama ‘I Pledge’ video
Have you seen the Obama “I Pledge” video? Well, parents are outraged after a Utah elementary school showed the clip to schoolchildren, which consists of celebrities pledging support for the president’s policies.
According to a conservative group, the message of the video should not be embraced by public schools because it is a “radical, leftist propaganda.”
Gayle Ruzicka, president of the Utah Eagle Forum, said the film was blatantly political. He told The Salt Lake Tribune: “If parents want their children to learn about those things and do them in the home, wonderful, fine, but it’s not the place of the school to show a one-sided propaganda piece to children without parents knowing about it.”
According to the newspaper, Eagle Bay Elementary School Principal Ofelia Wade has apologized to students and parents after the incident.
“I Pledge” features more than 50 Hollywood celebrities who offer “to be of service to Barack Obama,” “to never give anyone the finger when I’m driving again,” “to sell my obnoxious car and buy a hybrid” and to advance stem-cell research among other things.
What do you think? Is it a radical, leftist propaganda?
