Would You Pimp Your Kids For Obama?
Some parents apparently said yes. Click that link first. Watch the video. Digest it for a second. Then come back.
And look at some of the comments:
Those kids will feel very proud of themselves in in the? next decade
I? am crying watching this video. I wish and pray for all kids around the world.
cute kids… let’s give ’em a good future.
I don’t know what makes me more angry about this crap.
1) To see that these kids, who are not capable of rationally understanding the issues they’re discussing, are simply being paraded out as cute little actors in order to tug at peoples’ heartstrings.
2) To know that the adults watching that video probably aren’t rationally able to understand the issues either.
3) To know that the video might actually work, and that idiot voters will respond favorably to such ridiculous pandering.
4) To think that the people leaving comments to that video have the power to vote my liberties away?!
There’s just so much wrong about this that I can’t even begin to describe it. It’s days like this that I think that we’re too far gone to recover liberty. Nearly everyone now in our nation was educated in progressive public schools, and not enough people have learned how to wake up and think critically about what’s happening around them.
Part of me is reminded of what my coworker, who has a 10-year-old daughter, told me. She came home from school one day, and they had to write a report about how they would choose whether to vote for Hillary or Obama. They were never even told that there were other options. No assignment to choose between McCain and Huckabee (this was several weeks ago, when both were still in the race). I’m sure there won’t be any follow-up assignment about whether to vote Democrat or Republican, because Little Miss Brainwashing Teacher will probably explain that only oppressive assholes vote Republican.
So what’s worse, the brainwashing of our kids, or the perhaps very effective brainwashing of our adults through bullshit ads like this one? I know the ad is filled with cute little kids, but if you can watch that ad and not feel disgusted, you’re missing the big picture.
