“The children of the future” are speaking out in a new campaign video, and they’re “kinda blaming you” for successfully voting Mitt Romney in as President of the United States.
Singing with blank expressions, they ask us all to “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.”
This America allegedly has “endless wars” and a “sacked” Big Bird. “The Earth is cracked and the atmosphere is frying,” and we’re actively trying to kill “all the polar bears.” Parks are closed, the air is poisoned, homes are foreclosed and the rich get special government perks.
The song closes with this:
It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag
We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you
You did your best
You failed the test
Mom and Dad, we’re blaming you
The melodramatic and unsupportable postulating is bad enough, and the sophomoric rhyming certainly doesn’t make it any better.
But the biggest factor against the video is that America already has record numbers of foreclosed homes. It’s already hideously dumbed down, as evidenced by the “Obama Phone” lady, a real woman who is supporting the President’s re-election efforts just because he’s giving away “free” cell phones. Further proof of our intellectual deficiencies can be found in those emotionally stunted miscreants who are vandalizing property of supposed Romney supporters and posting death threats on Twitter against the candidate himself because the Republican would “ban tampons” if elected.
And that’s not to mention the nation’s monumental debt… or our prolonged, miserable unemployment situation … or our diminished status around the world, where terrorists know they can take their time leisurely stalking, torturing and murdering our ambassadorial staff without having to worry about any real repercussions.
