From the Great Dr. Walter E. Williams...
Discouraging young Americans from identifying with their country and celebrating our traditional American quest for liberty and equal rights removes the most powerful motivation to learn civics and U.S. history. After all, Damon asks, "why would a student exert any effort to master the rules of a system that the student has no respect for and no interest in being part of? To acquire civic knowledge as well as civic virtue, students need to care about their country." Ignorance and possibly contempt for American values, civics and history might help explain how someone like Barack Obama could become president of the United States. At no other time in our history could a person with longtime associations with people who hate our country become president. Obama spent 20 years attending the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's hate-filled sermons, which preached that "white folks' greed runs a world in need," called our country the "US of KKK-A" and asked God to "damn America." Obama's other America-hating associates include Weather Underground Pentagon bomber William Ayers and Ayers' wife, Bernardine Dohrn.
The fact that Obama became president and brought openly Marxist people into his administration doesn't say so much about him as it says about the effects of decades of brainwashing of the American people by the education establishment, media and the intellectual elite.

It is so sad many Americans are completely brainwashed by the Leftists. Hopefully the disastrous BO presidency will teach them something.
The Left has worked hard for decades to indoctrinate our youth to hate America. The result is the Obama presidency and the love of the failed unjust system known as Socialism.
I suspect as little as 30 years ago, BO would never have won ANY political office and would have languished as a silly ignorant community organizer his entire worthless life.
America is dying thanks to the Left.
