Van Jones and MoveOn.Org team up to brainwash children

What follows comes our way via the folks at Reason:

It’s election season! Time to exploit children for political gain!

Today’s entry: This video from Rebuild the Dream, the new organization of former Obama green jobs czar and 9/11 truther Van Jones, in which cute kids mouth bizarrely sophisticated talking points, including words and phrases they almost certainly don’t understand, such as “infrastructure,” “living wage,” and “tax brackets.”

H/T to Greyhawk at the Mudville Gazette who adds:

Apparently has a piece of this action, too. It’s kind of a creepy sequel to the many videos from ’08 featuring kids singing praises to Obama – something the folks at Reason also noted.

Do go and check out Reason’s follow-on video, one that I think frames the first nicely.

We’re dealing with some radical folks here… radicals attempting to hide their extremism behind the smiles of unsuspecting and exploited children.

Sick stuff.

Made sicker when, as Michelle Malkin documents, you understand who it is that Van Jones is teaming with to further his agenda… not just MoveOn.Org as Greyhawk notes, but the Union thugs at SEIU and the AFL-CIO.

Jones’ use of children and his choice of thugs as partners in the carrying out of his ideas seems fitting.

Unions aren’t strangers to exploiting children as my colleague JayTea notes:

I was reminded of that when I saw this video footage from a Verizon picket line. One particularly exemplary union member brought his daughter to the picket (I’m lousy at guessing kid’s ages, but I’d peg her as about 10 to 12). When a truck driven by replacement workers attempted to drive into the facility, this hero vilely cursed out the drivers while having his daughter stand in front of the truck to keep it from getting into the plant.

 Here’s where we see just a smidgen of cognitive dissonance going on here. The potty-mouthed striker is calling the workers every vile name he can think of, impugning every aspect of their character, declaring that they are the lowest of the low, utterly without conscience or consideration for others, especially his daughter… while trusting in their basic decency to not just run her over and proceed in to work.

 That right there is the face of today’s unions, folks. And no wonder they get along so well with the left — this kind of thuggery is their stock in trade…

Leftists today will go to any length to advance the cause to include thuggery and the exploitation of children.

Sick stuff indeed.

    I’m glad they survived the liberal abortion mills. Now they have to survive indoctrination long enough to grow an independent brain. Hopefully sooner rather then later.

    This kind of stuff works for Frank O’Dumbell and his kool-aid drinking friends but to the rest of us it just reminds us of a fascist cult of personality.  For obama Pyong Yang on the Potomac is a desired outcome.

    I am surprised they didn’t throw in ‘ummm ummm ummm’ for good measure.

    They’ll tout the Democratic line until they get that first paycheck and get their “WTF! moment”.  “What the hell are all these “deductions!”

    • jim_m

      They won’t have that moment.  Dems don’t pay taxes.

  • I don’t understand why Van Jones is allowed to do this.  He is indoctrinating our children and he is an avowed communist.  Let us hope the next President can find a way to stop this nonsense.  If they did that to my kid I would be spending the rest of my life in prison, but Van Jones problem would be solved.

      Because it’s a free country and people are free to be communists and the left is eager to have their children indoctrinated.

      The best answer is not to make this kind of stuff illegal, but rather to expose it for the crass manipulation and indoctrination that it is.

    Pure exploitation.  Send the children in with the message and hide behind them.  Typical cowardice from the left.  

  • That’s one of the scariest most-disturbing things I’ve seen in a looong time.

    • What’s scary is that this has happened before.  My mother told me tales about ‘announcements’ in east germany, where they trotted out kids to attack the west, and hail the motherland.

    What’s even worse is that some parents and other adults will indoctrinate their children into the existence of a scary omnipotent and omniscient creature who will punish them for not believing in them and worshiping it and its earthly representatives.  They also teach children that all who are not members of their group are evil and shall be punished with eternal torment.
