Open Thread * Children Sing for “Dear Leader”

“Sing for Change Obama”

If you made it through that video, I respect your capacity for the intolerable. Should someone call CPS? Geeezzz. Here is how the creator of that video, KathySawada, who has also created a Web site, “Sing For Change,” describes the experience:

Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon, when 22 children, ages 5-12, gathered to sing original songs in the belief that their singing would lift up our communities for the coming election. Light, hope, courage and love shine through these nonvoting children who believe that their very best contribution to the Obama campaign is to sing.

Do those children and their parents have any clue about “Obama’s forgotten people”?

  • Ask the tenants of Dear Leader’s financier Tony Rezko, whose tenants froze for months during a Chicago winter because Rezko didn’t manage the properties Obama’s influence gave him the means to buy up.
  • wbbm0627curtiscoopermd7.jpgAsk the mother of the little boy who died because Dear Leader’s close financial ally, Cullen Davis, couldn’t bother to maintain the iron fencing on the former public housing, which fell and crushed the little boy to death. (Watch that video, you privileged children and parents.)
  • Ask the union employees of Maytag to whom Dear Leader promised he’d work hard to keep their jobs in Illinois, but when Dear Leader took money from the billionaire scion of the Crown family and a major owner of Maytag, it so happens that Dear Leader never even mentioned those Maytag workers to the one man with the influence to affect those workers, all of whose jobs left the country.

What planet are the parents of those children living on? Certainly not anywhere near the reality of most Americans’ lives. But, silly me. All we need to do is sing, “Yes we can,” and all those troubles will magically go away. HERE’S THE VIDEO THAT THESE CHILDREN, AND THEIR PARENTS, SHOULD BE WATCHING:

“Obama’s Forgotten People”

Yes, that’s another video by the great Flineo.

It breaks my heart every time I watch it.

It would break the heart of any person not doped up on Hopium.

Next, more tripe from the YouTube page about the planet these Hopium-addicted goofball parents are living on — that has nothing to do with the real-life problems that Barack Obama has ignored or used to enrich his corrupt pals. It’s disgusting to read this tripe:

Sing for Change was a confluence of hard work, good will, and shared vision. Inspired by ideas raised at a grassroots Obama fundraiser, a music teacher, Kathy Sawada, and the children composed and rehearsed the songs in less than two weeks. Several musicians heard of the effort and volunteered to accompany the children. Parents and older siblings designed and provided the T-Shirts and the banner. There’s a first for everything, but rarely do so many firsts come together at once: for the children and their parents, this is their first performance, first video, first banner, and first involvement with grassroots work on a presidential campaign.

As Sunday approached, a neighbor volunteered a home. Production wizards got wind of the project and offered their help in recording it. The likes of Jeff Zucker, Holly Schiffer, Peter Rosenfeld, Darin Moran, Jean Martin, Andy Blumenthal, and Nick Phoenix rearranged schedules to participate. Holly Schiffer was able to get three High Definition cameras (Panasonic HVX250′s), and an AVID editing facility. When Jeff Zucker went to pick up the camera package, Ted Schilowitz happened to be there and offered a RED camera set up on a Steadi Cam.

What we accomplished in a few hours on a Sunday afternoon embodies the nature of the Obama campaign: its grassroots inspiration, its inclusiveness, its community building. People pitched in quickly for a cause that resonated with them. There were not many conditions: “Think this is a good idea? Want to help? Great. Sunday at 12:00.” At the heart of the project were 22 children and their music. The willingness of all involved to come together for them was a testament to our hope, unity, courage, joy and belief in the future represented by these children.

We are offering the video to everyone, the Obama campaign and all media with high hopes that we can all join together to Sing for Change.

Lifting our hearts to Sing!

    The timing of Obama’s latest school children indoctrination speech is no coincidence. September 8, 2009 is meaningful to Obama for an entirely different reason. (See below.)

    Well, now that they’ve made their indoctrination video private (I guess because people thought it was a little too Hitleresk) – here’s a video WORTH watching and cute as can be.

    This is the way it should be done:

  • Betty

    I AM SPEECHLESS. How can this be happening and who do we have to object to about all of this? Also among all the people that helped to elevate the nonbama…let’s not forget the person who asked the crowd..” Is he the One”? oprah is very responsible for much of this garbage. Why anyone would want to support her by watching her show and supporting her sponsor is beyond me. The groups opposed to nonbama have been very strong and did marvelous things in the past months..we need some guidance in how to handle his dictator tactics. How CNN and MSNBC can stand by and allow what they do leaves my mind crazy. Even Fox is not reporting enough of the negative goings on. As a democrat..(former) I can’t help but wonder how I lasted as long as I did.

  • Ana

    Does anyone still have a copy of the kids singing? The video has been taken down and I can’t find another copy.

  • Elizabeth

    He has a HUGE mural too, in Pittsburgh. Just like Saddam, Che and King Jong Il.

    They said it is PERMANANT for Barack, though, (even if he loses ??) and is to help “beautify” the area! She isn’t Jeff Zucker, but some ER actress was there to unveil it.

    Better get the paint cans out, while we still can ! lol

    • Betty

      Is this mural story for real? If so…why aren’t people objecting?

  • Brendy

    This is spooky – scary; sounds like ‘endoctrination’ or brainwashing to me. These kids HAVE NO IDEA what they’re saying/singing, let alone what a dictator like Obummer COULD do to this country! What is WRONG with people? Do they think this is ‘cute’?

  • VMorris

    The link no longer works. They have made the video private.

    Kevin and Brandon-Parents who subject their kids to being used as political tools are the ones who brought this on. It is shameful that they would expose their children to the underbelly of politics and then cry fowl when people point out the similarities between other historic figures who liked to get kids while they are young and shape them into an army. The parents are cowards and hiding behind their kids.

    If they want to sing for Obama, the adults should do it for themselves and leave their kids out of it. I would never let a child of mine be exploited by supporters of a presidential candidate like this.

    Sorry if you can’t handle the truth.

    Another place to complain about the biased “moderator” for the VP Debate:

    Janet H. Brown

    A debate “moderator” in the tank for Obama
    By Michelle Malkin • September 30, 2008 10:13 PM

    My first syndicated column of the week, filed this afternoon, shines light on PBS anchor Gwen Ifill, who will moderate Thursday’s only vice presidential debate. Try as she might to deflect questions about her impartiality, her biases — and her conflict of interest — are clear. But don’t you dare breathe a word about any of this. You know what will happen if you do…

    RACIST!

    Sidenote: TVNewser reports that Ifill has broken her ankle, but she’s still going to do the debate. But will she disclose her conflict of interest? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Ask the Commission on Presidential Debates if she will acknowledge her conflict of interest: 202-872-1020.

    And here’s the e-mail address of Janet H. Brown, Executive Director of the Debates Commission: jb@debates.org

    Hopefully, their email system works better than the House.

    Tons of readers recommend that Sarah Palin open her debate remarks by congratulating Ifill on her book and asking her to tell everyone the title.

    The NBC, would be better to fight the aducationa system.American schools are in the botton 4th in the world. This children are the future generation. No wonder,we start to loose more and more jobs.Our school system is far behind the World and not because our kids are stupid, no,they are very smart. Unfortunatelly, they leran what the teachers are teaching them. Don’t teach the kids,how to take a test.They will never need that.Teach them how to study,not spelling, history,geography should be mandatory.This kids needs to know about the world not spelling.

  • Docelder

    Well, I have written the NBC ombudsman and told them how disappointed I am with this video being produced by NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker. I told them the video exploitation of these kids was deplorable. I also told them I expected an on the air apology, and a commitment to do better. And, I have been writing the editorial departments of foreign news outlets asking for help in getting this out to the rest of the world citing our media is not giving unbiased coverage as evidenced by the video itself being produced by the NBC Universal CEO. Maybe the world media can exert pressure on our media… at least they can shame them into doing the right thing.

    Children Write and Sing for Change in Venice

    I’m appalled, disgusted, and embarrassed for these people – these leftists, so educated and yet so blind!

    They are worshiping the Hopey-Changey Dude which is bizarre in itself, but to make it even more confounding and strange, he’s never changed ANYTHING!

    What a strange movement – unwittingly acting in the tradition of the idolatry of the Nazis and Communists. These are the leftists who are making their run for power – now made possible by the corporate looting of the United States and the failures of the criminal and fanatic right-wing.

    The pendulum swings too far left – the center is the way. Obama will bring disaster.

  • LIsabona

    I wish my comment will go through. Seeing the video remainds me of the old communist country and WWII leaders,who forced the people and specially the children to idolise them, like,Hitler, Mussolini,Stalin, the Romanian dictator Ceausscu, Mao,Castro,Chaves and many others. This type of adulation is a commuist style thing. If Obama wins,he will make Ayers dream come true.He will deliver the America he always dreamed of.
