Video: And now, an important message from “the children” about the election

posted at 4:01 pm on October 27, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Newsbusters, which has the lyrics, and you really should read them. Just yesterday, O lamented the fact our music these days isn’t political enough. Wish granted, champ. What makes this extra special, I think, is how “happy” all the children seem to be about participating. It looks like they filmed this right after being told it’s time for their annual vaccinations.

Ross Douthat cuts to it:

Not the first musical salute to Obama this year to go starkly negative on the opposition, but Douthat’s right that the visual idiom this time is classic Hopenchange. Three years ago, kids sang hymns to the goodness and greatness of Our Leader; today they sing about how an America under Romney will let sick people “just die.” That evolution’s worthy of another four years, no? WaPo has a column today declaring Obama some sort of archetypal father figure. Here’s the message that he’s fathered.

Cross “Tomorrow Belongs To Me” as sung by the Hitlerjugend in Cabaret (1972), with the Haitian schoolchildrens’ song praising “Papa Doc” Duvalier in The Comedians (1967), and you get pretty close to this.

I don’t know if the song in Cabaret was actual Nazi-era stuff, but the song in The Comedians absolutely was official school curriculum material under Papa Doc.

If progressives, especially The Self-Exalted One, really think this will make anyone with normal or better intelligence pull the lever for them on 6 November, my already-low opinion of their IQs just dropped precipitately.

I now put them somewhere between a paramecium and a flatworm. (Granted, that’s insulting two innocent lifeforms.)

This piece of abusive, damnable manipulative dreck has the California Teachers Association’s imprimatur all over it, I am certain.

I too would love to see the names of the individuals behind this “Future Children Project.” These poor children remind me of the Borg in Star Trek. Definitely many pages taken out of Hitler’s playbook. I can only hope that the scales will come off of these innocent children’s eyes one day soon, they will see to what extent their minds were raped by the subhuman propagandists behind the “Future Children Project,” and they’ll only become more and more conservative the harder their high school teachers and college profs try to push them in the soulless communist direction in the future.

MN J on October 27, 2012 at 10:54 PM

Never seen a hostage tape with kids in it. Frightening. Sad that their parents are obviously so happy to have them participate in such a propaganda piece, and side with someone whose policies will bankrupt them before they’re out of high school. Was this how the parents of Hitler’s brown shirts felt, elated to see their children so used? Child abuse, as far as I’m concerned, pure and simple.

TXUS on October 27, 2012 at 11:13 PM

Where are officials from Social Services? Isn’t this child abuse? These children couldn’t intelligently discuss these issues, but the adults who put them up to this surely tell them how smart they are to have the opinions they sing about. Seriously. Isn’t this child abuse?

This is quite disturbing. Whoever thought this was a good idea and then actually put forth the energy to make it a reality needs to have a psychiatric examination.

Same here. Lately he has been looking especially unhappy, morose, uninterested and irritated. It’s like he thinks, “how dare you question me?”

Sometimes he looks like he is just going through the motions. You never feel a sense of joy out of him, ever. When he smiles it seems like the smile of someone who sees himself above everyone else and everything.

Why do so many still love this guy? The man is cold and seems to love himself more than anything. Seems like he is still living off the 2008 propaganda hype residue and not generating any new excitement.

If the Obama worshippers wanted to create an ad.. guaranteed to generate outrage and energize the right to make SURE this offensive self loving clown is thrown out on his large and alien sized ears…]

They couldn’t do better than make an ad like this..

“Vote for Obama, or we’ll teach your kids to HATE YOU”….

When my niece, as I noted a couple of days back.. on hearing me and another adult talk about the election.. blurts out…

“ROMNEY SUCKS….. HE WANTS TO BAN MOTHERHOOD”……

After a quick Q & A.. we find out it’s her teachers, spreading the hatred, and trying to use our children as suicide bombers in an emotional jihad….

I couldn’t stand Obama and his teams of thugs before this..

now..

I stone cold hate the fraud..

It’s like Goebbels and Stalin’s pitchmen were working hand in steel fist to destroy whatever unity and goodwill existed before this Chicago goon in chief took over.

Pay attention liberals..

This is the lousey son of a b11tch you wanted so damned much.. enjoy the ashes and the coal cinders which is all that is left of his “new politics and civility”

what a duchebag..

Serious question. Is this a real ad, or a parody of liberals? It seems to be real, but it is so incredibly bad– those lyrics, really??? It’s messing with my head. Laugh or cry? I guess both at this point.

On another note, voted absentee in MI, hopefully with enough of us, we can tip the scales for Mitt, or at least cancel out my idiot in-laws who will vote Dem no matter how bad the state is tanking. And some of the ballot initiatives in MI… ugh… It’s like CA lite there sometimes!

Yes, they were serious, and no, it isn’t a parody. Anymore than this was;

http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2010/10/01/must-see-global-warming-10-10-commercial/

The reason progressives put out things like this is twofold. First, inside their little mutual-admiration society in Washington, LA, NYC, and MSM newsrooms, the beliefs spouted here are not only “not controversial”, they are accepted as the gospel truth. If you dare to say, “hey, wait a minute”, you are instantly classified as a dangerously stupid “hick”, a “bitter clinger”, etc. Dissent is not only not allowed, it just never happens.

The second factor is that since everyone inside the echo chamber is absolutely certain that they are right, it never occurs to them that their beliefs, which they consider indisputable facts, look like completely insane delusions to the rest of us outside the “Only Places That Matter”.

As Daniel Moynihan once observed, “Anyone is entitled to his own opinion, but no one is entitled to his own set of facts”. Progressives do not agree with Moynihan; they believe that their opinions constitute reality.

I suspect that they would not survive long in the kind of world they dream of. Reality is not too tolerant of people who refuse to acknowledge its existence, and the laws of both predation and physics are unimpressed with someone who thinks philosophy trumps everything else.

Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Ho Chi Minh, Obama: all used the children like this. I’ve seen it first hand in Vietnam. You may ask, “Where are the parents?”, they are either just as bad or too afraid to speak up. They just want to live and hope all this will go away. Seventy years ago, there was a free, God fearing and moral country that would make it go away, but America is no longer that country for reasons all too obvious. Barring a booming voice from the heavens, we will never again be that country. So hunker down in your redoubts and gird your loins for the long fight.

There is something very sinister and alarming about children being indoctrinated by liberals into little Obamatrons like this. It has to be a form of child abuse. The 10-1 dislike ration on youtube indicates what the vast majority of people think of it.

on the other hand, if you were a mole in the Obama campaign advising them on campaign tactics, but with the secret goal to really piss off conservatives and to sway independents away from Obama, you’d come up with
- Julia
- wedding registry for Obama
- equating voting for the first time to losing your virginity to – Obama
- unhappy kids blaming their parents for a mess,

and then the entire management team would start smiling and nodding their heads, and so would you, as you looked straight into the camera.

Folks who stoop so low as to use public school children, union teacher(s), and public funds to create the purely Obama propaganda video would stoop even lower to spread their message.

Investigate sources and bill the Obama campaign for the use of public funds to create a propaganda message.

Now tell me the kids were all at a private school, the teachers were not unionized, and that the Obama campaign paid them all minimum wage to create this propaganda piece.
