In case you were wondering which school taught kids that “Barack Hussein Obama mmm mmm mmm” rap that I posted yesterday afternoon, here are some new details.
The video was originally posted in June 2009 here by YouTube user “brandnuwords.” Update: She has now removed the video sometime this morning. Here is the screenshot:
“Brandnuwords” is the YouTube account of Charisse Carney-Nunes. More on her in a moment.
YouTube user “alteredbeat” re-posted the video on September 6 here.
Alteredbeat e-mailed Carney-Nunes to inquire about the location of the school. She told him it was a school in South Jersey.
This screenshot from the video…
…matches up with this picture of the auditorium at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington Township, NJ:
I have e-mailed the principal of the school with the following questions:
Did Ms. Carney-Nunes have permission to videotape the performance?
Were parents notified that their children would be participating in this activity prior to the lesson?
Was Ms. Carney-Nunes invited to the school to teach the children the song and about her book, “I am Barack Obama?”
Was the principal aware of this event and taping?
Back to Charisse Carney-Nunes. Via ModernConservative, Carney-Nunes is senior vice president of The Jamestown Project, “the award-winning author of the children’s books, I Am Barack Obama (2009),” and according to her biography, “a graduate of Harvard Law School, where she was a schoolmate of President Obama.” I have e-mailed Carney-Nunes for comment as well.
The Obama school song video that she taped shows her book featured on an easel next to the children hailing Dear Leader. She promotes her book as a tool that “allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, Who will change the world? Ultimately, he realizes that he will.”
She has spread this creepy cult message to schoolchildren across the country.

We already know what the response will be to critics of this elementary school agitprop: Raaaaaacist!
Mark Tapscott at the Examiner has a related warning on the driving force behind the progressive movement.
Guess he’s just another “kook,” too.
Jon at Exurban League has a response from the school district confirming the rap session as an official school activity.
The poorly written statement is posted on the school district’s site.
