Creepy Campaign Ad Features Brainwashed Children Blaming Parents For Not Voting For Obama

Obama Ad 1027

Just in time for Halloween,  a group called The Future Children Project released this frighteningly Stalinesque campaign ad of Stepford children singing about the world they supposedly live in under a Romney presidency, with “endless wars,” “poison air,” and oceans full of oil.   And it’s all our fault for not voting for Obama, of course:

Newsbusters appropriately compares it to the infamous Lyndon Johnson “Daisy” ad warning of a countdown to nuclear war if he lost to Goldwater.

Here 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
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!

Noel Sheppard observes:

[I]t’s one thing to write such disgusting lyrics. It’s quite another to get children to sing them.

If the folks at this agency possess such a thing, they should be ashamed of themselves for involving youngsters in this project.

Or do they believe like Goebbels did that it’s okay to involve children in spreading propaganda?

Whatever the answer, LBJ’s Daisy ad was considered so over the top that the campaign only aired it once.

How many times will Americans be subjected to this new piece of filth?

    To paraphrase Ayn Rand, the creepy children are always with us, being used by those would loot and enslave others.

  • Hirst could be the tipping point for state’s endangered rural Democrats June 22, 2017
    For all the enthusiasm I hear from my party about saving endangered species, I wish there was a little more sympathy for the most endangered creature of all – the Democrat who represents a rural district. There aren’t many of us left, and the way things are going this year, our line may die out […]

    It takes a lot of time and dedication to build a good reputation but it takes only one bad choice to destroy it in an instant. As state treasurer, I carry this lesson with me every day as I work with other state officials and dedicated treasury staff to manage our state’s finances in a […]

  • Saving Energy While Liberating the Poor June 26, 2017
    Last week, the Antiplanner argued that transit is going extinct and, rather than fight this trend, regional officials should find ways to smooth the transition. One way of doing so is to improve the mobility of low-income workers. Transit advocates love to use phrases like oil dependency and auto dependency to suggest that automobiles are […]

    The Federal Highway Administration has just released urban highway statistics for 2015, including the miles of roads and daily vehicle miles of driving by road type and “selected characteristics” for each urban area, including population, land area, freeway lane miles, and similar information. These data are quite useful as they allow interregional comparisons as well […]
  • The Transit Apocalypse June 22, 2017
    With declining ridership, growing costs, and increasing competition, the nation’s transit industry is on the verge of complete collapse. The trends leading to this collapse appear to be permanent, yet transit officials across the country are pretending they are only temporary. Instead of preparing for the collapse, they are simply seeking more subsidies. The Antiplanner […]
