So let's get this straight, the school says Obama's speech can't be viewed even though it's being livestreamed to kids all over the nation, but it's okay to bus kids to bus children to hear from President Bush. That simply is illogical and, according to MSNBC's website, it appears as though I'm not the only one who's has some major concerns about the differences in policies.
Dwight McKissic Sr., the senior pastor of Arlington's Cornerstone Baptist Church, said he's concerned about the district's decision to not broadcast Obama's message while transporting students to hear a message from Bush.Essentially what the school district is doing is leading kids to believe that Obama is an evil man who cannot be trusted to talk to children. This was already the case with so many of the districts who banned students from watching the address, but the Arlington School District has made it clear what's really going on. The right wing wants to teach it's children that Obama = the devil while Republican leaders = absolute angels. That is rather disturbing.
"I do not understand the duplicity in this situation," McKissic said in a news release from the church. "I believe the students and the public deserve and need to have these differences explained."
