[Video] Teaching Kids Obama-style Redistribution of Wealth Philosophy With Candy - Halloween Prank
In an "Obama-style" Halloween prank, Fox News contributor, actor and comedian Steven Crowder paid a visit to young trick-or-treaters at a local church's "trunk or treat" event and attempted to "redistribute" their candy to make the system more "fair." In the video, Crowder, dressed in a monkey costume, says the stunt is an attempt to teach kids about the American tax system.
Of course, the Obama administration's official stance on tax policy is based on the belief that the rich aren't paying their "fair share" in taxes despite the fact that the nation's top 10 percent of income earners pay roughly 70 percent of all federal income taxes.
As Crowder reaches into kids' candy baskets and gives it to other children with less candy, the idea of redistribution is met with great resistance.
"Hey, dude that's not cool," one kid says. "It's not fun to take people's candy...That's my candy, I worked hard for it."
"But you had more than him," Crowder replies.
Love it! What would be great is if he took the candy from the kids who went door-to-door and gave it to kids who weren’t dressed in costumes and didn’t go trick-or-treating. That would be even more like reality.
I’m gratified to see that kids still understood the unfairness, despite what they are being taught in government schools.
Yeah, people really love this video.
Make sure to put it on Facebook and email to friends. I hope it will knock off the fence sitters.
