Video: Young lefties figure out way to mobilize Democratic turnout

posted at 7:55 pm on July 19, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via Jon Henke, who wonders whether maybe this was intended to be as awful as it is in hopes that people would start circulating it just for the gawk factor. That’s as good a theory as any; alternately, I suppose it could be some sort of false-flag op by the College Republicans aimed at discrediting Democrats by getting lefty sites to run it. If that’s what happened, given the quality of the production, they’re looking at a hell of a defamation suit. Sue, Democrats. Sue like the wind.

Exit question: The way things are going for The One, is this in fact their best shot at mobilizing turnout?

For the dems this is just admitting reality. ITs not the youth vote they depend on to win (Its too flippant to bet the farm on) but Minorities that keep the dems in power.

Ugh! The horra, the horra. Couldn’t they have at least gotten someone who could carry a tune?

I stopped listening to Ed for that? Obviously I am not their target audience.

Cindy Munford on July 19, 2010 at 8:03 PM

Since youtube pulled We Con the World for using a famous song, I wonder if youtube will pull this video for the same reason. Hmmmm…. probably not.

Can we get content warnings for God-awful singing voices from now on?

lol.

Breathtaking. They should have really done a parody using The Scatman, tho. Thriller is SO cliche, gurlfriend.

lansing quaker on July 19, 2010 at 8:04 PM

So they “won’t fall in line,” but we need to? There’s no universal value of “falling in line,” it’s just that they think we ought to.

Let’s talk about who spent the year “afraid” of who speaking their minds, eh kiddos? Can you focus for that long?

Answer: Zombies can’t speak or sing…thankfully.

I didn’t watch but I will admit to feeling dumber just from reading the intro spiel.

Bishop on July 19, 2010 at 8:06 PM

I got through a minute thirty of it. I don’t get it. I mean it makes no sense from either a republican or democrat point of view. It’s woefully too lame for any legitimate purpose for Dems.; and if it’s by a Repub. the shear awfulness of it will out shine whatever false flag they were trying to raise. You’d have a better chance at figuring out the who is helped politically in a video depicting alpacas vomiting on each other.

Weight of Glory on July 19, 2010 at 8:09 PM

My ears are bleeding.

tru2tx on July 19, 2010 at 8:10 PM

Sue for what? Defamation of who? A really, really sh!tty singer?

The singer made my toddler ask, “She sick, Mommy?”… that’s how bad it was.

englishqueen01 on July 19, 2010 at 8:17 PM

I thought the Dems have had the Zombie vote tied up for years. Why make a video?

(I’m glad I wasn’t at the Lincoln Memorial or the Washington Monument when that was filmed. Ick!).

Some of the girls are pretty cute, but good lord, who’s doing the singing (if that’s what it’s called). Spend a few more minutes recruiting a voice next time.

Excuse me while I try and stop the bleeding in my ears.

God that’s painful.
Painful enough to make me think it is in dead a production of idiot freshmen socialists club-lizards.

EZnSF on July 19, 2010 at 8:57 PM

This is what College Democrats do and they don’t really understand the zombie criticism. They speak in positive, generic terms that don’t mean anything and then contrast that with conservatives who are “bad” or “mean” or “stupid.” “We want a better future and they don’t!” They’re basically bullies who want to use peer pressure about being cool to win votes instead of actual ideas.

Dear god… haven’t these kids heard of AutoTune?

I’m suing whoever produced that video. That high pitched whine that was supposed to be singing drove my dog nuts, he won’t quit barking.

Red Cloud on July 19, 2010 at 9:12 PM

Meh, the line “we have our own minds” is a bunch of BS! Anyone that voted for Obama prior to this fiasco of an administration was a moron, anyone that votes for him again in 2012 and his cronies coming up in November aren’t even morons, they’ve had a lobotomy!!

I doubt it’s a GOP moby AP, I mean what does one expect from a bunch lefty college potheads?

Paul Revere_1 on July 19, 2010 at 9:21 PM

So are they basically admitting that they have dead people vote democrat?

DethMetalCookieMonst on July 19, 2010 at 9:22 PM

We’ve gone from Obamagirl to dead fat chicks in 2 years. There’s a metaphor there somewhere.

Fat chicks? Either you are lying or you are one of the reasons anorexia and bolemia is so big in this country.

DethMetalCookieMonst on July 19, 2010 at 9:26 PM

I like that they’re all led in a cult-like chant at the end… very individual of them.

BTW – Nice logo design: Xote gain 2010!

Fitting that the Dem’s 2010 platform is sheer vapidity.

theperfecteconomist on July 19, 2010 at 9:33 PM

I can’t think Democrats and Zombies without thinking of this.

On the plus side, at least zombification would be a more legal way for the dead to vote for Democrats than the usual way.

And a restraining order keeping her at least 500 feet from any open mic.
