Born Again American

April 26, 2010

I received a link to a video in an email that, at first, appears to be people singing about things I would sing about if I could sing. Having listened to the song and researched the site, there’s more to it.

The site is Born Again American. That’s a catchy title that sounds a bit like what Conservatives would call themselves. However, that is not the way this site leans. Under the heading “Learn About Your Freedoms” on the “Take the Next Step” page, is a link to People for the American Way, a decidedly Liberal group. Born Again American is described as “an initiative of Declare Yourself, a national non-partisan, non-profit (501(c)3) organization dedicated to increasing young voter participation and civic involvement”. That sounds great, but once you read a bit, there’s no doubt about the intentions.

Declare Yourself was started by Norman Lear, the TV producer. The site encourages young people to vote, but there is no doubt which way this organization leans. There is even a link to download “The Youngest Candidate’s Guide to Becoming a Community Organizer”. Community organizer; now where have I heard that before?

Bottom line – don’t be taken in by the nice song. This is just a Liberal outreach.
