Got ClimateGate? Propagandizing Kids in School

A sickening first-hand report from a mom whose kids are getting brainwashed at school:
When did global warming turn into a forced religion?

My daughter came home from school re cently with a spring in her step and a song on her lips. With no foreshadowing -- or time to call an exorcist -- out came this chilling refrain:

" . . . You can hear the warning -- GLOBAL WARMING . . . "

By the time her father and I removed our jaws from the floor, we had learned that:

A) All the kids had been coerced into singing this catchy ditty, which we called "The Warming Song," at a concert for parents.

B) Further song lyrics scolded selfish adults (that would be us) for polluting our planet and causing a warming scourge that would, in no short order, kill all the polar bears and threaten the birds and bees.

C) There was no deprogramming session on the menu. And no arguing allowed.
This NY Post report by Andrea Peyser--highlighting the Stalinist-style indoctrination of her own kids-- would be chilling to me save for the fact that this sort of thing is going on all the time, courtesy of the teachers' unions (mostly in big cities) who are more than happy to do their part to turn the nation's children into an up and coming generation of left-wing mind-numbed robots. So it's old news really, although we're mightily glad that someone's decided to report it.

Schools are supposed to educate, not propagandize for one side of an argument, the now-discredited side in this case. Parents of both school-aged and college-aged students need to wake up and start intervening in their schools to put an end to this kind of propaganda.
