Frightening children with junkscience

Children are being used in a new political campaign video, singing about what America will be like if Obama isn’t re-elected. The lyrics describe a scary world of environmental catastrophe.

Pro-Obama Ad Has Children Singing About an America Where ‘Sick People Just Die’ & ‘Oil Fills the Sea’

The founders of the ad agency behind the iconic “Got Milk?” ad campaign and some of the other most well-known advertisements in the country have a new message: re-elect President Barack Obama, or your children will live in an America where “sick people just die” and “oil fills the sea.”

A two-minute black-and-white spot features a chorus of children — “the children of the future” — singing to their parents that “something happened to our country, and we’re kinda blaming you.”

…The ad is the brainchild of Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein, of the San Francisco-based Goodby Silverstein & Partners, for their Future Children Project. The Future Children Project states on its website, “Re-electing President Obama is a momentous decision that will require every single voter. What would the children of the future say if we let them down this November?”

The lyrics are disturbing:

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’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

… Find a park that is still open

And take a breath of poison air

… When we look around

The place is all dumbed down

And the long term’s kind of a drag

…Mom and Dad

We’re blaming you!

  1. The NEA has had a campaign of indoctrination of the next generation of progressives running for decades. http://www.nea.org/home/19583.htm

  2. It’s irritating and creepy. Those actors could have been computer generated and I wouldn’t have been able to tell the difference. I’m waiting for the parody to appear.

  3. We can’t use child labor to make textiles, but it’s OK to use them to push a political agenda. This is just scary! First it was zombies we needed to fear, now it’s tiny Gorebots!

  4. they forgot this line,

    imagine a world where the population is increasing a 100,000 a day because agriculture feeds them, where fossil fuels helps supply them.

  5. So let me get this correct. Those of you who agree that man made global warming is significant apparently agree the Earth is flat, the moon is made of green cheeze, the Earth is the center of the universe, Al Gore did not earn millions of $$$$ pushing this stuff and he does not fly around the world on a private air poluting global warming jet.

  6. The song is simply a long lie. It is simply immoral to use innocent children for advoating a message they have no possibility to evaluate themselves and which mostly is completely untrue! There is probably no country on earth more environment-aware than the US. Look at how the Californian air has changed in 40 years.
    Finland, like the rest of Europe, has the same kind of indoctrination creeping in. Greenish actors are producing plays for children with a hero called Al Gore is saving the world . The official climate info for grade 7-12 is packed with bull—t. Our green minister of environment threats with imminent doom because we are heating the Finnish atmosphere (less than 1 % of the population in Europe). Our green member of the European parliament declares that 50 000 people (prediction of a Danish computer simulation, mind you) will die prematurely each year if ship fuels are not cleaned of the sulphur. OK to clean it, but FInland has to do it years before the rest of Europe to show what good boys and girls we are. She also says that rising temperatures will cause tropical diseases to spread and kill us all. Serious research shows that this is not the case. Further, Earth has not warmed in the last 17 years, and since 2002 we are in fact slowly cooling.
