Democrats and the progressive left have a propensity for using children as political props to push for everything from carbon taxes and gun control to illegal immigration and transgender bathrooms.  There seem only two domestic issues that the left refuses to consider in relation to children:  abortion and the national debt.

Hillary used children in her “role model” ad against then-presidential candidate Trump, and now NBC News has compiled a video entitled “Dear Mr. President” in which they present children expressing their fear of President Trump.

This anti-Trump ad hard-hitting news segment, however, is being called out as propaganda.  Mostly because it is.

Fox News reports:

A pair of NBC News videos featuring kids expressing fears about Donald Trump’s presidency is coming under fire by conservatives who call it “propaganda.”

The videos show kids saying things such as “Most of my family is black. I’m afraid that you’re gonna hurt some of us blacks,” “You are here, attempting to white-wash America,” “You’re going to separate me away from the rest of my family, and I really don’t want [that] because I love them too much.”

The videos begin with one youth offering faint praise, then continue with a barrage of children expressing despair and fear over Trump and his policies.

Setting aside the fact that all of this hysteria about Trump being a racist and his agenda overflowing with items aimed at harming black and minority communities is based in pure fantasy, the exploitation of children and the very real and potentially long-term emotional and psychological effects of creating (completely unfounded) fear in the hearts and minds of children is unconscionable.

One of these children says that he fears Trump will “hurt” black people.  On what this is based is anyone’s guess because one thing about which Trump has never wavered in his many decades of political see-sawing is the need for stronger black communities that are safe and that afford children the same quality of education and opportunity afforded to more affluent communities.

Another child says that he doesn’t “like [the president’s] definition of ‘American’,” and again, it’s not at all clear on what this assessment is based or what the child even means.  Needless to say, no one asks, either.

Fox News continues:

The conservative outlet CNS ran a story that said: “NBC News handpicked anti-Trump tykes for two propaganda videos to make it appear that every child in America thinks President Trump is an ignorant racist and threat to the country.”

CNS said NBC seems to have gone out of its way to present all children as being terrified of a Trump-led nation.

NBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It’s not surprising that NBC is in hiding over this anti-Trump ad.  The number of likes on this video is 103 as I’m typing this, while the dislikes are 9,047.

One might think that in the wake of their cable and network news ratings, the “mainstream” media would work to rebuild the trust of the American people.  Apparently, though, they’ve decided to take another route and double-down on the precise reason that public trust in mass media is at record lows.
