The Obama Praise Video

Charisse Carney-Nunes, author of I Am Barack Obama and maker of the “Mmm, Mmm, Mmm” Obama praise video, decried the violent and uncivil tone in politics today after receiving an email from Michelle Malkin:

"Ms. Carney-Nunes,

"I understand that you uploaded the video of schoolchildren reciting a Barack Obama song/rap at Bernice Young elementary school in June. I have a few quick questions.

"Did you help write the song/rap and teach it to the children? Are you an educator/guest lecturer at the school? Did you teach about your book, “I am Barack Obama” at the school? Your bio says you are a schoolmate of Obama. How well-acquainted are you with the president?

"Thanks for your time.

Instead of responding to the email, she ran to Ann Gerhart at The Washington Post.

Carney-Nunes says, "How can I talk to those people? These are people who persist in believing that Barack Obama is a Muslim, that he isn't a citizen of this country. You tell me: Where is the beginning of that conversation?"

Malkin says in her post, "It’s a telling sign of the Post’s ideological agenda and its insufficient tuned-in-ness (to borrow the NYTimes’ phrase) that the paper doesn’t think parental concerns about left-wing radicalism in the schools are Page A1-newsworthy — but that the complaints of a social justice proselytizer are."
