In an effort to help Obama win November’s election, Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein, of the San Francisco-based Goodby Silverstein & Partners, released an online video showing children singing about how terrible the world will be if Barack Obama does not win in November, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Friday.
“The black and white spot features local kids and an original song (lyrics by Goodby, art direction by Silverstein) that provides a sobering look ‘at what our children will say about us and how we left the world for them.’ And it’s not always pretty,” Carla Marinucci wrote.
The video is featured at the Future Children Project web site with a caption that reads: “Re-electing President Obama is a momentous decision that will require every single voter.”
“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,” reads the opening lyrics.
“We haven’t killed all the polar bears, but it’s not for lack of trying,” the song adds, despite a suppressed report indicating that polar bear populations are actually increasing.
“Big Bird is sacked,” the children sing – a clear reference to Mitt Romney’s comment that he would stop taxpayer subsidies of PBS.
“The Earth is cracked and the atmosphere is frying,” they add, despite a report showing that global warming ended 16 years ago.
The song is filled with similar straw-man arguments and ends with a message Barack Obama is sure to appreciate.
“Mom and Dad, we’re blaming you!”
But the video is not going over well with conservatives.
“Do leftists really think that creepy singing kids are going to influence voters?” asked a post at Hillbuzz.
“When I see these vids USING children all I think of are those Hitler Youth videos from World War II,” observes a post at Saving the Republic.
This is not the first time children have been used as propaganda tools to advocate for Barack Obama.
In February, we reported that kindergarteners at Tipps Elementary School in Houston, Texas, sang what was called the “Barack Obama Song” in honor of Black History Month.
“He’s our man, Yes we can!” the children chanted.
As part of our series entitled, “The case against re-electing Barack Hussein Obama,” we reported that a number of songs heaping praise and worship on Barack Obama were being taught to children.
“Ross Douthat notes it’s a merger of 2008’s style — viral video, children, outlandish claims — with 2012’s actual message — ‘Kill Romney,'” observes conservative blogger Ace of Spades.
Marinucci adds that “Goodby is a registered Republican” who has concerns about the direction of the party.
