Children or Political Pawns?
What happened to the notion of protecting children from the harsh reality of the adult world? This culture exploits their innocence for political warfare.
At least that seems to be what NBC is doing with their latest stunt. To promote their “anti-Trump” agenda, the network has chosen to use children to convey their message. According to CNS News:
“NBC News handpicked anti-Trump tykes for two propaganda videos to make it appear that every child in America thinks Pres. Trump is an ignorant racist and threat to the country.”
The two videos titled “Dear Mr. President: Kids Talk Trump” and “Dear Mr. President: Letters from American Children” respectively, both open with seemingly fawning compliments. But, soon after, the children transform into mini-adults who have a “bone to pick” with the president.
The children are obviously being both coached and exploited.
Some of the kids accuse Trump of being a racist and encouraging violence against African-Americans:
“Most of my family is black. I’m afraid that you’re gonna hurt some of us blacks.”
“You are here, attempting to white-wash America.”
Others address issues such as the border wall and Trump’s travel ban, saying things like:
“Not letting immigrants into America is really not nice, so please let them in.”
“Just because I’m Mexican, doesn’t mean you can build a wall around the country.”
And of course, no anti-Trump video would be complete without the use of cleverly worded insults such as…
“Who will build this country up again from the rubble you will put it under?”
“There’s no need to garner so much hate for countries based on the actions of a single group or organization.”
There were no children, in either video, expressing positive views of President Trump. No kids who are glad that the president is getting their mom or dad back to work. Or children happy that grandma and grandpa will finally have affordable health care.
This is a despicable tactic meant to stir up emotions. What they are actually doing is publicly bathing their children in political hatred.
On a lighter note–watch this and smile…
