Obama Youth: campaign targets children under 12

I have a question for all the parents in America: would you like your kids to fall under the sway of a creepy, Messianic cult led by a charismatic leader?

Sure, you yourself might be a supporter, or you might like him. But, what about your kids? Do you want them to be indoctrinated into supporting a Leader?

With that answered, go visit Obama's page for kids, specifically targeting those 12 and under: my.barackobama.com/page/content/kidshome

From the summary here:

People who would like to utilize many kids for Sen. Obama's promotion can find a handy "Kids for Obama Starter Kit". The kit opens with a scientific claim: "Studies have shown that kids can affect their parents and their siblings' opinions and even change the opinions of older family members . . . including those of voting age". Having set the tone, the kit offers simple guidelines for setting up a "Kids for Obama" event, covering such as aspects as invitations, broad advertising and planning. Its pragmatic advice is hard to misinterpret: "Ask kids to draw a picture of Barack Obama or what America means to them. These pictures could be used on campaign buttons and/or bumper stickers. It's a great way to get kids involved!" A video shows a successful adult-led event and happy children who share their perspectives: "I want to vote for Barack Obama because he is cool!"

How is that a bad thing to involve kids in politics?

Nothing to see here but ignorant racists spouting off fear based pedophilia.

Perhaps because children DO NOT SEE COLOR as so many of their parents do (whether it is conscious or unconscious). And if the parents see their kids involved, or they are asking questions, the parents can't lie to their kids - and in turn - aren't lying to themselves anymore. It's brilliant, and truly is an investment in our children as our future.

so obama wants a Hitler youth deal? it will be called obama youth? you will become the new jew in obamas new world order! Two freedom fighters today have been picked up for talking like real Americans and not monkeys for the new world order what brave guys sad to say the two will be MURDERED inside some jail cell or prison cell within one year, fact is you can hope to fight evil but it takes a real Army of brave guys to win a war against evil doers like obama and his rats for the new world order! do not fight back until its time!

_It's brilliant, and truly is an investment in our children as our future._ Yeah, I mean how did we ever get along without something like this before? _Perhaps because children DO NOT SEE COLOR..._ Well they better learn eventually so that when they're older they can figure out what part of town they shouldn't live in if they value their life and property. What an idiot.

“I want to vote for Barack Obama because he is cool!” Now that's the direct result of the raised-on-rap, MTV generation coming of voting age! We chose not to have children because we didn't want them to be victims of a polluted society.

since when did voting for someone because they are "cool" become ok? shouldnt we vote for someone because they are best for this country?

Are you kidding me with this? The event is totally harmless and invites discussion of politics between parents and children about candidates if anything.

I agree that there's nothing wrong with getting kids involved in politics. It's great to raise awareness about things that they should be a part of in the future (even just by voting). But do we really want to spoon-feed them one side of the coin? Do we not value their own intellects, or do we just want miniature versions of ourselves, political ideology included? How much better would it be to present the whole picture, to give our children choices and allow them to use their own brains to draw their own conclusions? To say that the Obama Youth program is just a harmless way to expose kids to politics is disingenuous. www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/indoctrination

Amazing. It only took 2 posts to get to the obligatory racist comment. I'm cancelling your Obama vote with an educated one. Neither candidate is truthful, but at least one of them has a history that is known from the cradle to present...and that history is a lot longer than the one of his opponent whose desire to change the constitution to fit HIS socialist agenda is DOCUMENTED repeatedly.

“Studies have shown that kids can affect their parents and their siblings’ opinions and even change the opinions of older family members . . . including those of voting age”. History repeats itself...apparently Obama has studied the the youth organization of 1930's Germany.

Anyone that would buy this crap is pathetic or uneducated. The fact is that people will buy made up theories because it fits in with their agenda of trying to elevate McCain to some higher plain than he deserves.

It's funny how most people who claim this is "innocent" and "good" are extremely ignorant of how communism spread during the early 1900's through Russia...and even before the Third Reich...and before China was over run by communists in the 50's...and Venezuela...and Cuba...they all had their own "youth camps"...funny how history repeats itself, no? Ignorance is bliss, history is scary.

I just wet myself. Why does the political arena have to be so scary? I think I'll go watch some Hello Kitty Island Adventure and ignore the world until it implodes and we can all go be with Jesus.

I'm surprised some people don't see a problem with this. Suppose a little McCain supporter wants to come? Or should you cut those kiddies from your babies' Friend List? This isn't to get kids involved in politics, it's to use kids to try to influence the voters in their family -- to vote for Obama.

JUST WHAT DID YOU THINK A "COMMUNITY ORGANIZER" DOES, ANYWAY. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL. THIS IS WHAT BILL AYERS DOES. ISOLATE AND INDOCTRINATE THE KIDS. THEY WILL TAKE OVER THE FAMILY, AND WILL TURN OVER THEIR PARENTS TO THE THOUGHT POLICE IF THE PARENTS TALK AGAINST "THE ONE" READ 1984 AND BRAVE NEW WORLD. OBAMA AND AYERS ARE ALL THERE FOR THE READING. THOSE THAT VOTE FOR HIM ARE THE GERMAN PRECURSORS TO THE NAZI PARTY TAKING OVER. BLACK MAN'S VENGENCE ON WHITEY. ANTI-WAR TERRORIST VENGENCE ON POWERFUL US MILITARY. AND THE FOLKS JUST VOTE HIM IN BECAUSE HE IS A COOL, CALM, CLEAN BLACK GUY WHO PROMISES TO MAKE IT ALL BETTER FOR YOU POOR FOLKS.

"Well they better learn eventually so that when they're older they can figure out what part of town they shouldn't live in if they value their life and property." Great, more division. Just what we need. I must applaud your failed efforts at being clever. Here's a great link that I think you'll find rewarding: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0
