Raise awareness. Call to action.

NEA I say more?

If the NEA wants to go into policy activism, then it should become a private foundation with private funding, and Congress should cut it loose.” (Hot Air)

Did the White House initiate the conference call-cum-political pep rally? Or did the NEA, an independent agency, spontaneously politicize itself?” Chicago-Tribune

I think this is just the beginning of an emerging trend in the Obama Administration. ACORN a non-profit, “non-partisan” organization is on the ropes. Today, it seems another organization receiving federal (tax payer) funds has been exposed of advocating for Obama and his agenda. As said Ed Morrissey from HotAir, if you want to support and advocate for a particular party or politician, do it on your own dime!

Spread the word. Don’t let this come to fruition: “You’re going to see a lot more of us in the next four and hopefully eight years.” -Buffy Wicks, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement

I’m curious to know if things like this (federally-funded, non-partisan organizations pulling weight) transpired under George W. If it did, it’s still shameful. If not, that really says something about the way Obama does business. (Just like he ran his ’95 Senate campaign in which he was able to kick everyone else off the ballot). Let me know.
