Obama Youth Day.

In the 1930s, a new, charismatic leader led his political party to electoral victory in a country hoping for change, and started broadcasting political propaganda to children. We all know what happened next.

In the 2000s, a new, charismatic leader led his political party to electoral victory in a country hoping for change, and then things started looking suspiciously similar.

The historical parallels with other cases of using schools as indoctrination centers are frightening, and we ought to asking questions about this, not to mention protesting to teachers, administrators and anyone we can think of.

What does it say for the US that this kind of thing gets praise and admiration? And what can we do about it? Keeping children home from school is a good idea, but may not be feasible for everyone. Asking for stay-at-home neighbors to babysit might be one way around that. I'm not sure what calling up congressmen will do, but we could certainly start donating to groups fighting this. Any other ideas for protest?
