And folks mocked those who mockingly called Obama "Messiah?"

You probably already heard about that New Jersey Elementary school that sang about Emperor Obama's inherent goodness and omniscience. But did 'ya know that our "leader's" moniker was used in place of ... the Christian Savior?

One song that the children were taught quotes directly from the spiritual "Jesus Loves the Little Children," though Jesus' name is replaced with Obama's: "He said red, yellow, black or white/All are equal in his sight. Barack Hussein Obama."

Yes. It's creepy. Very creepy. And you know no elementary school would sing such a song about a Republican president, no matter what.

Amazingly (not), the AP omits something from their report. See if you can spot it:

That month, a group of smiley and fidgety students at B. Bernice Young School sang a medley of two short songs praising the president.

The first song begins, "Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama/He said that all must lend a hand/To make this country strong again."

The second one was set to "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and included the refrain, "Hooray, Mr. President."

Yep, notice that "Jesus Loves the Little Children" is not mentioned as the song the first tune was set to, but "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" is mentioned as the basis for the second. Surprise that, huh?

They may not have have recognized the first tune. I'd never heard it before and I went to Catholic school as a kid. (Maybe it's a Protestant song?) If I hadn't read this post before watching the video, I would have assumed it was an original tune.

Having said that, it's still egregious that this happened. Kids should be insulated from politics, not brainwashed by officials of the government into supporting those currently in power.
