Creepy: Children Sing Obama's Negative Messaging in New Ad
Townhall.com ^ | October 27, 2012 | Kate Hicks

Posted on 10/27/2012 6:43:02 PM PDT by Kaslin

I suppose we all thought the Obama reelection effort had jumped the shark when we had Lena Dunham telling us all about how great our "first time" (voting, that is) would be with Obama.

But no. This is worse. So, so much worse.

Courtesy of Allahpundit over at Hot Air, here's a creepy video of children singing about the alleged horrors of a Romney presidency:

The Future Children Project

A sampling of the lyrics:

Imagine an America

Where strip mines are fun and free

Where gays can be fixed

And sick people just die

And oil fills the sea

 

We don't have to pay for freeways!

Our schools are good enough

Give us endless wars

On foreign shores

And lots of Chinese stuff

Whoa.

It's not actually from the Obama campaign, but it's certainly using the same messaging that POTUS has been pushing. As AP points out, this is sort of reminiscent of videos like this or this, except that unlike those two (equally as creepy) clips, there's no "lending a hand" or "spreading happiness and freedom." We're blaming Mom and Dad for voting for Romney, and thereby killing Big Bird and a whole lot of polar bears.

Again. Whoa.

Yet it's indicative of the Obama 2012 message: vote for me because the other guy will literally murder people and animals. Only, from the mouths of babes, it's decidedly more icky. Heck, these children are too young to understand half of the stuff they're singing about. At least hope and change and peace and love were generic enough concepts that even a five-year-old can knowingly support. This is just disturbing.

Lyrics:
Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
Big Bird is sacked
The Earth is cracked
And the atmosphere is frying

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!

This is exactly what Stalin, Mao, Castro, Hitler, and the various IslamoFascist dictators like, to indoctrinate children to do their campaigning for them

watch out America, if BHusseinO gets re-elected .... we ain’t see nothing yet!

(also the communists like to train the kids to spy on their parents and families and report on their doings to the local communist party cell masters for possible punishment ...)

Seems to me, about one third of those kids are missing.

If Rush did a parody with James Carville, Larry Flynt and Barney Frank, he wouldn’t even have to change the lyrics.

They all nodded happily and popped the candy into their mouths and chewed gloriously. Johnny was very proud as he chewed his candy, he decided that he liked his teacher very much. Because she told the truth. Because she was right about fear. Because she was right about God. He’d prayed many times for many things and never got them, and even the one time he did get the skates, he knew his dad had heard him and had put them under his bed for his birthday and pretended he hadn’t heard him. I ALWAYS WONDERED WHY HE DIDN’T LISTEN, AND ALL THE TIME HE WASN’T THERE, he thought.

Johnny sat back contentedly, resolved to work hard and listen and not to have wrong thoughts like Dad.

The teacher waited for them to finish their candy. This was what she had been trained for, and she knew that she would teach her children well and that they would grow up to be good citizens. She looked out of the window, at the sun over the land. It was a good
land, and vast. A land to breathe in. But she was warmed not by the sun but by the thought that throughout the school and throughout the land all children, all men and all women were being taught with the same faith, with variations of the same procedures. Each according to his age group. Each according to his need.
She glanced at her watch….

It was 9:23.

We’re going to have to do a lot moe than just get rid of Obama to save America. This cancer has been growing for decades and will continue if we think we can get rid of Obama and forget about it.

After all, we let Bill Ayers slither away in the early 70s and he’s a bigger problem today than he was then because he teaches those who teach the teachers.

I HATE it when so-called ‘adults’ exploit children to further their causes.. Isn’t this child abuse? These kids have no idea what they’re talking about. This is brainwashing. Where’s Social Services?

social services only cares when what happens crosses their own agenda. now we know what their agenda is, it is obvious why they don’t care.

I see 16 kids. That’s a $1 trillion each that they owe.

I suggest the little Lefties pay up or shut up.

It takes a no-class political machine like Barack’s to crank out such stuff.

Clearly they are trying to gin up intensity in their depraved base. It’s the only hope they think they have to keep the sick game going, as they put it, “Forward.” They have lost the edge they had among women.

Mitt is very smart. Don’t interfere when your opponent is busy destroying himself.

Geeze, this is incredibly creepy. Nightmare on Elm Street levels of creepy. Some of those children have those dead-looking eyes.

Rush is going to have a field day with this on Monday.

Yes, they do-—they know what “gay” means and the idea that homosexual behavior is “good” and to take pride in sodomy.

Heather has two mommies and Daddy’s Roommate, etc. have been in the schools for decades to eliminate Christian Ethics and replace it with Satanic/pagan occultism. If they can destroy the innocence and morality of young children-—it will be almost impossible to reclaim a Christian moral worldview later-—The Christian worldview is needed for our government based on The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God—we are making kids adore Marx and the State as god. We are forcing a godless culture of socialism. We got to destroy the public school system-—designed by the likes of Billy Ayers and his friends and the socialist John Dewey.

The public school system IS child abuse and unconstitutional (John Taylor Gatto).

A kiddie beauty pageant could be taken all in good humor, where nobody believes anything serious is intended and the idea is to reward the most imaginative outfit. How could whoever did this NOT believe it was serious? Not even the mmm, mmm, mmm paeans of praise to Barack Obama in 2008 had the kids chewing out their parents for ills real or imagined. We’re watching true wickedness unfold. I think Mitt’s going to come out ahead, but the lame duck days of Obama to come will be a rocky, rocky ride. I hope Boehner mans up in the House and cedes to nothing, nothing at all until Mitt has sworn in.

And the adult men (professional “got milk?” advertisers) putting those words into the mouth of babes is not only sickening but cowardly. They hide in the background while manipulating their little puppets (and that’s all the kids are to them) into blaming parents everywhere for all the terrible things that might happen to the world if Obama loses — essentially saying that any parent who doesn’t vote for Obama must be completely unconcerned about the future of their own kids.

I will be interested to see what product this advertising firm tries to sell next. Don’t think i’ll be buying it, not after witnessing the manner in which they tried to cram a harmful product (Obama) down our throats by claiming it’s really the alternative product that is deadly.

It’s easy to go overboard in watching this tripe. I mentor a high school club. To nearly the last one of 14-18-year-olds, they think Obama is full of crap. They won’t admit it to their classmates in general, but when in a small group or club they feel free to call Obama crazy or stupid or evil. If Obama wasted $200M on useless anti-Romney ads, he’s spent billions on useless Marxist tripe. Kids may go along with this nonsense when they’re nine but they have thrown it off by 18 except for a few hardcore Leftist lunatics — who become Libtard journalists or educators.
