Is this video below child abuse? Instead of children exploding or polar bears falling like victims of 9/11, this time it is spectral children hating on mom and dad from a supposedly desolate future. Such childish doggerel can only be the product of earnest adults:
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
Apparently it is an anti-Romney ad, listing destruction of the planet by global warming as just one item in a laundry-list of petty demagogic cliches. Was this paid for by Obama?
Full “lyrics” here. Nice propaganda to put in the mouths of the innocent.
Hurry up and unplug our existing coal-generation electricity infrastructure, for the children, to keep them cold at night.
“Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” for the children (Obama 2008), so they won’t have too much light.
Hurry up and quadruple gasoline prices, for the children:
“Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”
—Obama’s Energy Secretary in-waiting Stephen Chu in December 2008 when U.S. gas prices were below $2/gal and European gas prices were $8/gal.
And don’t forget that killing debt, for the children, the gift that keeps on taking.
Some kids will have good reason to blame mom and dad if they find the future impoverished (and cold instead of hot), like those kids in the video, who were undoubtedly put up to it by their own eco-leftist parents.
