Wingnuts In Full-Scale Panic Over 'Socialist' Third-Grade Sing-a-Long

News

A group of Virginia third graders composed a song about the spiritual emptiness of greed, which they sang for their fellow public school students at an assembly -- good on them, right? Except, UH-OH TIMES A HUNDRED, they included the term "99 percent" in the lyrics. Since when are children allowed to use SOCIALIST PROFANITIES in school, Every Conservative Blogger in America now demands to know. Or maybe the real question is, who let these kids pay attention to the world around them like that?


Let's first enjoy an excerpt from the children's lyrics, shall we?

Some people have it all

But they still don’t think they have enough

They want more money

A faster ride

They’re not content

Never satisfied

Yes — they’re the 1 percent

I used to be sad, now I’m satisfied

’Cause I really have enough

Though I lost my yacht and plane

Didn’t need that extra stuff

Could have been much worse

You don’t need to be first

’Cause I’ve got my friends

Here by my side

Don’t need it all

I’m so happy to be part of the 99

And now here is one randomly-selected outraged dingbat of many (which you can Google search, if are you a masochist, but we won't link to them all here) from BigGubermint.com, who is FEEUREEUS with this group of intellectually superior nine-year-olds:

Remember, these are third graders. The simplistic left wing economic nonsense of this ditty boggles the mind. But to an impressionistic third grader, it plants poisonous seeds at odds with long egalitarian American traditions that disdain class hatred. It mocks American traditions of industry, hard work and accomplishment. It teaches the young to distrust and dislike, which of course is a tactic employed by thug cultures and governments throughout history.

(The literate person's version of the word is impressionable, by the way.)

Can we at least Blame the Teachers? Not really, says the school board, according to a newz report from some local CBS affiliate:

The song was written and performed by third graders on October 21, 2011 at Woodbrook Elementary School during a Kid Pan Alley program.

Kid Pan Alley is an organization that helps kids write and perform their own songs. Their mission is to inspire kids to be creators.

Students write the songs and school officials are standing by the lyrics.

"They don't censor what the kids write. They don't shape what the kids write. It all comes out of the kids own mouths and the kids own words," said Albemarle County School Board Chair, Steve Koleszar.

Oh THERE'S the problem, we spotted it... they're encouraging creativity. NONE OF THAT NOW. [Newsplex.com]
