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:


View on YouTube

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.
