I received this press release via email from the YAF:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 28, 2010
Obama Uses Campuses for Rallies Once Every 12 Days
Young America’s Foundation Research Reveals President Has Spoken on a College Campus 47 Times during His Presidency
HERNDON, VA – Tonight’s speech President Obama is giving at University Wisconsin-Madison will mark the 47th time he has given a speech on a college campus since he was sworn in as President. At this rate, he is speaking to college students once every 12 days.
This new research should reveal that the Left is constantly attempting to indoctrinate students on college campuses across the country. While the economic growth is nonexistent and youth unemployment is at record highs, President Obama finds college administrators and faculty are eager to do his bidding.
Young America’s Foundation’s research found that the most common subject of these speeches is the economy and jobs. More specifically, the president has used college campuses to tout his failed stimulus program and try to convince audiences that adding more debt to their names was worthwhile.
The second most common topic covered by the President was Obamacare. The President is not only trying to convince young people that they should be happy they are going to be burdened with more debt, but they should also embrace a government takeover of healthcare.
President Obama’s most recent speech, which will be held at University Wisconsin-Madison, will be streamed live at 200 separate locations. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is reimbursing the school with $10,500 for hosting the speech. (It cost the Madison Police Department about $117,000 to staff his appearance at UW-Madison last November.) Teachers on campus are being encouraged not to cancel classes by administrators.
This report, in conjunction with the recent study that found that the majority of campaign funding from faculty is going to the Left, should put to rest the false notion that campuses do not have a liberal bias. The Left sees college campuses as the spring board for their liberal agenda, and President Obama has been in a perpetual campaign mode since taking the oath of office.
Interesting, no? It’s not surprising that the Marxist professor would gravitate to college campuses to propagandize students…but I had no idea he had been doing it this often.
