Stupid Pro-Obama Ads

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:31 am

Our first moronic ad features ultra-unenthused kids droning absurd lyrics about how Republicans will end the world:

Newsbusters has the lyrics. They’re worth reading in full to soak in the stupid, but here is an excerpt:

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

Having abused children in the first ad, it’s time to MoveOn.org to seniors. The second one features cursing old people. If you’re offended by the f-word, other profanity, or just idiocy in general, don’t watch it:

Make it stop.

  1. Make it stop.

    vote for Romney: that will stop it.

  5. These are just creepy.

  6. The power of propaganda.

    In an educated society these ads should cause a landslide for Romney.

    Remember that Obama is envious of the way China is run, he would like the power to just go ahead and do what he “knows” is best.

  7. I’m left with only two possible explanations: either the denizens of the Left somehow think this sub-Beavis-and-Butthead-level demagoguery is persuasive, or they’ve simply given up all pretense of persuasion and are simply venting their spleens in public. (The second ad up there was directed by Mikey Moore, so that’s, like, two or three normal people’s worth of spleen to vent.)

  8. I agree with happy. When I first saw the ad yesterday, I was immediately reminded of the Hitler Youth singing praises of their Fuhrer, just minus those cute (gag) little uneeforms (spelling intentional).

  9. It’s projection.

    Aren’t these the same children that the Democrats sold to the Chinese?

  10. It turns out that kids’ video is what they show to the Inuit hunters just before they send them out to bash the baby seals.

    It inspires them.

  11. Since Move On.org has donated more than $13K to the Obama campaign this year, I guess this would preclude the president from denouncing this vulgar ad, eh?

  12. Not only has the kids video been pulled, but the org that made it seems to have shut down their web site!

  13. Where gays can be fixed

    What is wrong with that?

    Michael Ejercito (2e0217)

  14. That is NOT real.

    Anita Busch (1c1971)

  15. It certainly is real, or was. If it’s been taken down so thoroughly, it’s because of the backlash

    Milhouse (15b6fd)

  16. That is NOT real.

    Comment by Anita Busch

    I think the former video is an authentic effort to elect democrats.

    You do have a point on the second one. The latter video from Move On is just a joke, of course, but it’s also intended to elect democrats. At least the Move On vid didn’t take itself too seriously, and I did laugh at some of the jokes.

    But at this late stage, Move On et al doesn’t have a positive case for Obama. The democrats had congress and the presidency for most of Obama’s term, and they should have something to run on other than demonization and jokes about demonization.

  17. Anita – why would you think they are not real? Is someone claiming they did not make them?

  18. Anita,

    The ad industry seems to think it’s real. Not very effective, but real.

  19. I saw this earlier on another blog. The thing I noted at the time is the look in those kids’ eyes.

    “Children of the Corn”, anyone?

    I assume these are all hopped up on Ritalin to have such glassy, unfocused dullard stares. Those kids aren’t having the kind of childhood any normal child should have.

    THAT should scare you even more than the content and presentation techniques.

  20. The second ad is actually an effort to convince Republicans to support death panels.
