Subliminal socialism: What Obama really told the school kidsThose critics of President Obama who feared he would use his back-to-school speech to indoctrinate America’s use with socialism were closer to the mark than they realized.

Those critics of President Obama who feared he would use his back-to-school speech to indoctrinate America’s use with socialism were closer to the mark than they realized. Thanks to sophisticated mind control techniques Obama learned in a Far Eastern madrassa, he is capable of imparting powerful subliminal messages. Those who paid close attention to his speech were easily able to discern them.
Hello, everybody! I am here with students at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va. And we’ve got students tuning in from all across America, from kindergarten through 12th grade.
“I’m going to leave you with one thought today: Socialism.”
And no matter what grade you’re in, some of you are probably wishing it were still summer and you could’ve stayed in bed just a little bit longer this morning.
“That’s not a problem you’re going to have next summer because you’ll be attending compulsory FEMA-run reeducation camps. And, by the way, say goodbye to Labor Day. Next year we’ll be celebrating May Day. Bring your red flags.”
I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived overseas. I lived in Indonesia for a few years.
“Heck, I was born there. Suckers.”
And my mother thought it was important for me to keep up with an American education. So she decided to teach me extra lessons herself, Monday through Friday. But because she had to go to work, the only time she could do it was at 4:30 in the morning.
“You try reading Leon Trotsky and Friedrich Engels at 4:30 a.m. Great thinkers but they could go on longer than Joe Biden. But you’ll find out for yourselves.”
But I’m here today because I have something important to discuss with you. I want to talk to you about your education and what’s expected of all of you in this new school year.
“And what’s expected is that you will read the complete works of Karl Marx, starting with the first hundred pages of “Das Kapital” tonight. There will be a quiz.”
Where you are right now doesn’t have to determine where you’ll end up. No one’s written your destiny for you, because here in America, you write your own destiny. You make your future.
“Actually, by the time you graduate, you won’t because the government will own everything. Bureaucrats will write your destiny for you. We’re printing the forms even now. In socialism, you don’t have to worry about your future. It’s all taken care of in the five-year plans.”
That’s why today I’m calling on each of you to set your own goals for education — and do everything you can to meet them. Your goal can be something as simple as doing all your homework, paying attention in class, or spend some time each day reading a book. Maybe you’ll decide to get involved in an extracurricular activity, or volunteer in your community.
“Or what’s more likely you’ll be organizing workers, peasants and intellectuals into giant collectives to disrupt Republican town hall meetings. Whoever does it best gets to run an auto maker or a giant medical center. We’ll own them all.”
The truth is, being successful is hard.
“Actually, it’s not. With no experience, I was elected president of the United States on my first try.”
And even when you’re struggling, even when you’re discouraged, and you feel like other people have given up on you, don’t ever give up on yourself, because when you give up on yourself, you give up on your country.
“And if you do, there’s always the gulag.”
So don’t let us down. Don’t let your family down or your country down. Most of all, don’t let yourself down. Make us all proud.
“And now I’d like you to join me in singing that great socialist anthem, “The International.” Altogether:
“Arise ye workers from your slumbers
“Arise ye prisoners of want . . .”
