How far does the brainwashing go????
#1
My kids go to a pretty conservative, religious private school....and they came home tonight telling me about the friends that say they wish they were old enough to vote for Obama.

Really? So here we have supposedly conservative parents that think Obama is so good that they've even told their kids how great he is????

One of them is black, and says he likes Obama because he's black. I told my son to ask him if he realizes what a stupid reason that is to vote for a President. The other friend is not black....but says he sure wishes he were old enough to vote for Obama.

I guess its easy to wish you could vote for the handsome black President that everyone makes such a fuss over when you're not old enough to worry about the future economy and future freedoms.....but its sad that the parents should know better.

No offense to anyone planning to vote Obama. Except I hope if you are voting for Obama, you have good personal reasons for it, and not just because of the color of his skin, or not just because he has a "D" beside his name in the voting booth.

You tell me.

Seriously. You consider what one set of parents tells their kids as "brainwashing," do you at least recognize how someone else might look in on what you're doing to your kids as the same thing?

The question is the methodology of indoctrination. Let's face it; that's what education is no matter how you slice it. Whether or not it's brainwashing depends on the delivery system. An example of brainwashing is Eric Holder's idea of repeating the same old "Guns are bad." mantra over and over until people eventually believe it. Being religious, conservative or even private schooled doesn't imply or require brainwashing. I'd say that I was brainwashed into being more atheistic and liberal growing up, where-as my switch to Christianity and conservationism were a result of my own personal quests for answers. I imagine it could have gone either way.

Here is a better question...which parent(s) are telling their youngins to vote for the candidate w/ the CORRECT color skin?

That parent is the evil one in my humble opinion.....

And this applies to any parent...any color....any religion.....any sexual preference....Well, you get the idea.

Maybe evil, definitely racist.

If someone disagrees with you and teaches your kids what you disagree with, it's considered brainwashing. If they teach them what you want them to learn, it isn't.

It really is that simple.

Atheists do it as much as Christians or anyone else.

Oh definitely...no matter what religion you are, teaching your child that you vote for somebody based on the color of their skin is racist and wrong and foolish. That was my main point.

My other point was that hopefully if these kids "want to vote for Obama", that they are also being taught WHY they "want to vote for Obama".

Like I said, people have the right to want to vote for Obama. But they better know WHY. Skin color doesn't count. And the "D" beside his name doesn't count either, as the sole reason for voting for him.

I guess my point was....I mean...if a conservative religious family feels that Obama is a good guy....I mean....really???? What has he done that has made not only the liberals and the blacks like him, but also conservative religious people too? No seriously....what has he done to sway all these people? Including children? Honest question.

I wouldn't say it's that simple. I think it has more to do with the method of delivery than whether or not you disagree with it. I believe there are many brainwashed Christians, Atheists, Liberals, Conservatives and especially Libertarians. Tongue

Children are generally brainwashed anyway.

Maybe you picked the school based on what appeared to be inline with your views, maybe other parents did the same, but their views aren't the same as yours, but nonetheless fits both sets of parents wants for their kid. it's all in how you look at things.
