Another creepy pro-Obama video featuring singing children

Another creepy pro-Obama video featuring singing children

You remember the creepy Obama children’s choir singing “Yes We Can” back in 2008.

Now Obama supporters have rolled out another creepy video, via NewsBusters (h/t Marie) which has the full lyrics:

The advertising agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners has just released a pro-Obama commercial eerily reminscent of Lyndon Johnson’s controversial Daisy ad featuring children singing about a variety of horrors including an America – supposedly under President Romney – where “sick people just die” and “oil fills the sea”….

I could only stomach about a minute of that pathetic act of desperation.

I watched the whole thing thinking it was a parody for the first minute.

It’s frightening that adults who think like this exist.

    The children can be excused for not knowing any better. Their parents and the adults who produced this is another matter.

There’s just SOOOOOOoooooo much wrong with this AMAZING item for the time capsule.

Starting with the Dear Leader-esque quality of the black and white images.

Then rolling through the Corn Of The Corn immolation of straw-men (Wicker Man?) caricatures, including Gorebal Warming tropes.

I was glad these kiddies were not exposed in “parks” to Occupiers, because we would be searching for their little rotting corpses, or trying to find their rapists.

Truly disturbing on every conceivable level of disturbingness.

    Agreed: creepy. I thought libs were all about teaching kids love, cooperation, and tolerance? So much for THAT.

    I’m starting to feel better about things. This is NOT how a confident campaign behaves. Who on earth are they trying to win over here? Anyone impressed by this has long since decided to vote for Obama.

    Reminiscent of the obnoxious 1970s energy conservation commercial. This snotty kid whined, “Come on, Adults: give us kids a chance!” Non-liberal adults hated it.

      One cool thing though…

      when these kids hit puberty and rebel…

      they are stoned Conservatives!!!

        CalMark in reply to Ragspierre. | October 27, 2012 at 5:20 pm

        You’re onto something there…

        Kids often rebel against parents who are zealots, that being the polite term to describe people who allow their children to be used this way.

Parents who allow their children to be used like this disgust me.

Let’s not forget this wonderful gem of creepyness:

[…] Watch the Young Pioneers of the Democrat Party sing for the Dear Leader. […]

First they steal from Russia (via Australia, apparently), now they are trying to use North Korean style propaganda techniques using children.


Honestly , I have never seen a group of less appealing looking youngsters. If I thought they really were my future I’d take poison now.

Not hyperbole here because I think this exemplifies a major distinction between obama and Romney. For obama, people are “objects”. On the other hand, Romney treats people for what they are: “subjects”. This alone warrants voting for Romney.

    ALman in reply to ALman. | October 27, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    When people are treated as objects, they are treated as less than the human beings that they are. They are acted upon, to be manipulated and controlled without regard to their freedom and rights. Fascists, socialists, and communists treat people in this manner. Obama is a user of people, meaning that they are little more than objects to him. As long as they are useful to him, they will be treated with regard and be around. When they no longer are, they’re gone.

    To say that people are regarded as subjects means that they are treated with the respect and dignity due to the human being. While there exists laws, rules, and regulations, these are viewed as ones that are for the well-being of the individual as well as society. They rely upon people living in a collaborative way and value human life. Republics and democracies are examples of this. Romney regards people for who they are. He has an interest in and concern about persons. They are not props to be used for his own selfish use and goals.

    Objects are acted upon. Subjects are the ones doing the acting. I hope this helps. Thanks to Jack for pointing to the need to clarify.

      I got your back.

      Figured you did not want to “remain on record” as having asserted that Romney treats people as something that you did not intend to convey.

      Gotta go to a party tonight. But that damned tune is stuck in my head. I guess we could all collaborate and rewrite that song. I have the first “stanza?” below.

Jack The Ripper | October 27, 2012 at 5:07 pm


I think you were trying to contrast subjects and objects as in the construction of a sentence, but it comes out more like subjects of a monarch, e.g., “the king’s subjects.”

Figured I would let you know, so that you could rephrase and re-submit.

Teach Brainwash your children well….

Jack The Ripper | October 27, 2012 at 5:25 pm

With the help of another web site, I believe that these are 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

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
The Earth is cracked
Big Bird is sacked
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!


Just watched the video.

Shameful. Shameless. Despicable. Vile. Revulsive. Inane.

The parents of those children have probably done as much damage to those kids as Jerry Sundusky did to his victims.

Let me explain.

Apart from the obvious that the kids are being exploited, and now think that they have played an important role in something big, and are going to go forward thinking that they are going to be celebrities and know-it-alls, what has been done to the kids is as follows:

Belief that good things come only from government.

Belief that trade and globabl competition is bad. Bye-bye Adam Smith and David Ricardo and Milton Friedman.

Belief that man is bad and hurts the polar bears, atmosphere, etc.

Belief that One Man, Barack Obama, is good and can save everything, but only if all the other “bad people” in the country get out of his way.

Wealth and success are to be resented because wealth is not a function of effort and merit and because life is a zero-sum game, where if one person gets a good deal, it necessarily means someone else got screwed. [Never mind income and social mobility in this country. Most millionairs are first generation millionaires. Paris Hilton is the exception, not the norm.]

Someone, please find out who the parents of these children are for the sole purposes of describing them anonymously to the public. Then, find out where they live, average home value, private/public school, au pairs, if possible, vacations (their carbon footprints).

P.S. – Post-remediation, does strip mining cause more damage than traditional mining? Are millions of square miles of solar panels and wind turbines the answer? What do they do to the eco-system?

BannedbytheGuardian | October 27, 2012 at 5:56 pm

I have not recovered from the 2008 one.

The as I remember most is the one with the fat black kids in the school gym swearing apathy that they would go on to emulate Obama.s example by becoming rocket scientists et al.

with the massive high unemploy got that section of the community ! Wonder how they’re getting on,

BannedbytheGuardian | October 27, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Apathy somehow morphed from ‘a pledge’. iPad is formatted for revolution I tell ya!

Jack The Ripper | October 27, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Help me rewrite that song.

Someone needs to think about America’s children, and it damn sure isn’t the CDF, or the Future Children Project, or Priorities USA, or AARP, or Barack Obama, or The Democrat Party. I’ll give Michelle some points on nutrition….

Anyway, here is what I came up with while checking out at the supermarket. Have to go to a party tonight. Hope others can run with the ball.

Imagine an America
Where kids like that don’t sing
About simple-sounding topics
Of which they know NOTHING!

    Something like this? Only mine came out longer by one set, I think…

    Imagine an America
    Where kids get to just be young.
    Where they laugh and play
    And learn more each day
    About the lives they have begun.

    Where adults don’t try to scare them
    And use them as political pawn.
    And tell them Mom is bad
    And so is Dad
    And the battle lines are drawn.

    Save the children of the future.
    Let them dream of greater things
    Than the fears and smears of partisans
    And the hatred all that brings.

    The kids can learn of science.
    See that the polar bears are fine.
    And Big Bird is rich.
    (The truth’s a b*tch.)
    Scaremongers crossed the line.

    Kids need to know wars happen
    When America has been attacked.
    But there’s no poison air.
    The seas will still be fair.
    Some fears are not based on fact.

    Save the children of the future.
    Let them dream of greater things
    Than the fears and smears of partisans
    And the hatred all that brings.

    The kids can learn of tolerance.
    That people aren’t all the same.
    We don’t all have to agree,
    That’s what it means to be free.
    Different views are not to blame.

    Let’s let the kids be kids now.
    Let them dream and just have fun.
    Let them learn of joy,
    It’s not a partisan ploy.
    Let them run in sand and sun.

    Save the children of the future.
    Let them dream of greater things
    Than the fears and smears of partisans
    And the hatred all that brings.

    But the partisans tell the children
    Mom and Dad are destroying it all.
    “Your future is bleak,
    Your parents were weak.
    Rise up and answer our call.”

    Imagine an America,
    That’s not a figment of “Hope and Change”.
    Where this pointless game
    And endless partisan blame
    Isn’t used to stop real change.

    Save the children of the future.
    Let them dream of greater things
    Than the fears and smears of partisans
    And the hatred all that brings.

    The world isn’t a test
    Adults must do what they think best

    And Mom and Dad?
    They love their kids.
    They don’t deserve such unfair blame.

      Looks Good.

      Scrambling to pack and hit the road for a week-long seminar, so will have to look at it more carefully later.

      But, looks good. [It took until this morning, but the tune from that video finally exited my mind].

        Have a safe trip.
        But now you have me thinking about how to “improve” on the tune… hmmm… 🙂

          ALman in reply to SueAnne. | October 28, 2012 at 9:07 pm

          “Let’s let the kids be kids now.”

          Yes, a thousand times yes. They’ll be taking on the adult life and all that comes with it soon enough. So, we ought not be pushing adult problems onto them, nor ought we have them mimicking adult solutions for adult situations.

The perfect antidote for this Obama-worshipping nonsense.

Pink Floyd – Another Brick On The Wall

Why are they playing to their base so late in the game??

They already have 98% of the creepy vote !!

    Back from my party.

    I have no idea who you are, but you keep nailing it, time and time again, and in far fewer words than I can.

    I admire your insight, style, skill, tenacity, and courage.

    Send some of it my way.

Was I the only one reminded of the Midwich Cuckoos?

“Where gays can be fixed” Will their be a healthcare deduction for that or will it be free?

Pahdon the “their” above, instead of “there.” I was so overcome with these childrins and their being tortured with ultra Vegan meals, p.c., and being marshaled like fascistic robots into doing a video.
