Obama’s exclusionary Easter Egg Roll

Not that there was any doubt, but Penny Starr of CNSN News reveals once again the hypocrisy of President Barack Obama (D) of public versus private use.

The Obama administration announced on Tuesday it has reserved 3,000 free tickets to the annual White House Easter Egg Roll for students in D.C.-area public and charter schools, but not for children who attend private or parochial schools.

Ever mindful of the separation of religion and state, ever mindful of the power of propaganda, the Easter Egg Roll, based on a religious holiday important to Christians, has a theme.

The theme of this year’s event is “Ready, Set, Go,” and the White House says it will “promote health and wellness.”

“All of the activities will encourage children to lead healthy and active lives and follow the First Lady’s ‘Let’s Move!’ initiative, a national campaign to combat childhood obesity,” the White House said.

The event will feature live music, sports courts, storytelling, egg rolling – and cooking stations.
