The HopeChange GroupThink Mindthoughts Song

Big Brother Approved! (not any more. The original video has been pulled. Enjoy this one while you can).

I'll let Kim Priestap delve into just how creepy and reminiscent of the concerts by kids in totalitarian states this is, and focus on those behind it.

While described as a grassroots effort, Kathy Sawada, who posted the video and can been seen directing the children in the video, is a bit more than just an enthusiastic music teacher you might find in your average public school.

Sawada is a teacher at an elite and expensive Colburn School of Performing Arts in Los Angeles as part of the Piano faculty. Colburn just built a $120 million 12-story high-rise addition for their musicians.

Does a concert-quality musician in an elite school in the middle of the most ego-centric city in the United States count as a "grassroots" effort?

Here's a partial list of those who helped produce this "grassroots" effort:

  • Jeff ZuckerAmerican television executive, and President & CEO of NBC Universal Gaffer, Chief Lighting Technician in Boogie Nights.
  • Post-producer (former choreographer?) Holly Shiffer.
  • Motion picture camera operator/steadicam specialist Peter Rosenfeld (appropriately enough, worked in Yes Man, a movie about " a guy challenges himself to say 'yes' to everything for an entire year."
  • Darin Moran, another motion picture industry professional, who just finished filming — how appropriate — Land of the Lost.
  • Andy Blumenthal, Hollywood film editor.

Grassroots all the way, baby

In Hollywoodland, anything is possible.

Update: The wrong entertainment industry Obamaphile named Jeff Zucker was originally credited above. Now corrected.

Update: Kindernacht seems to have been an embarrassment, so the original video has been pulled. IT has been replaced above by a copy... while it lasts.

Grassroots? No, it's Astroturf - as synthetic as their maxim: thesis-antithesisis-synthesis.

the Obama youth movement. Reminds one of a past youth movement circa 1930's. Special insignia and special words.

Posted by: Zelsdorf Ragshaft III at September 30, 2008 12:07 PM

All children under 10 must join the Obama Youth!

Posted by: Buzz at September 30, 2008 12:07 PM

It's good to teach kids early that their hope and happiness are controlled by their glorious leader, not by themselves.

When I saw this it brought another video of happy, beautiful kids singing a political song to mind: The Obama Youth Sing! I blame the parents.

"Uncle Bunny" is apparently truth squadding this subject by posting that everywhere. I can't watch videos right now -- anyone know what the heck it's about?

Rob, he's troll and his irrelevant post is now where it belongs, but you're right... he's a truth squader.

Posted by: The Rememberer at September 30, 2008 02:19 PM

I'll bet the Dear Leader was impressed. That's good because if not, the kids would wind up in the Dear Leaders gulag.

Posted by: Bob at September 30, 2008 02:20 PM

That really did remind me of those videos coming out of North Korea. Let's home we can survive 4 years of Obama without losing our freedoms and liberty.

Posted by: Capitalist Infidel at September 30, 2008 02:26 PM

So I have to wonder, does this video violate the McCain-Feingold prohibition against mentioning a candidates name in a campaign add.
re: the Vote at the end of the video.

Note the Rising Sun-like banner with the Obama logo in it? The one behind the girl at the beginning?

Posted by: JohnW at September 30, 2008 02:33 PM

Indoctrinate the children at an early age and you will have them for life. The teachings of the Catholic Church, Muslims, Totalitarian states, cults, and all mind control zealots with dreams of ruling the masses and imposing his will on them. We have a willing segment of our society who are buying into this and sacrificing their children much like the pagan sacrificial practices of the past.

The handwriting is on the wall. Too bad so many have been dumbed down and cannot read it.

Posted by: Bart at September 30, 2008 02:43 PM

The Waiters' Song (Tomorrow belongs to me) in the musical Cabaret reminds me of this. All hope and change with the substance well hidden. Look at the opening stanza. Very similar.

This is scary. All these kids need are brown shirts and swastikas on their arms and they could be singing for Hitler.

Posted by: Kens at September 30, 2008 04:20 PM

Venice, Santa Monica, West LA...absolutely the most horrendous socialist place I ever survived living in. Huge money earned by so many for so little work. Hollywood: Conspicuous consumption struggles with lotsa guilt for undeserved moolah. A Bush bumper sticker elicited an egg bath and a spree of key scratches. The land of fruits, nuts, and scary, self-righteous, venomous anger.

Posted by: marybel at September 30, 2008 04:35 PM

OMG!! That is horrifying!!! Hey, when I was 10 years old, I and my best friend, Kim, were both campaigning for Nixon to beat McGovern because we both knew he was bad news. But nobody told us what we should think or do...these kids are brainwashed and obviously don't think for themselves. I can't even watch this. After the first minute, I was too ill to continue. It reminds me of Hitler Youth or some other such organization.

Posted by: Janine at September 30, 2008 04:41 PM

but don't dare have a child at a pro-life march

Posted by: J at September 30, 2008 04:52 PM

I would not want my child to sing about any living politician.

Posted by: Tertium Quid at September 30, 2008 05:04 PM

Now, children, before we have the candy, tell Comrade Philo, do you have a radio at home?
Does your father listen in the afternoon??
He does? Really? He must like decadent old rock music, no?
Oh I see, he listens to a man talking all the time.
Are you in a rush to get home??
Hmmmm, Rush is the man who talks on the radio? I see.
Well, why don't you go with Comrade Magda. You won't be having a sweet today.

Posted by: Shooter1001 at September 30, 2008 05:05 PM

That's Scary! Children should not be used in politicals... but Obama does think his is a religious movement with him as God... Poor kids, elitist Obama.

That teacher should be fired for using kids in a political message and for using school property to promote a candidate...public or private school. I would love to know how many of those kids grow up to be Republicans.

Posted by: Mark at September 30, 2008 05:22 PM

I was unaware Venice, California, was in North Korea. These delusional fools should be locked up for child abuse, and the kids sent to be deprogrammed.

Ah, Arch, I see we're on the same page. It was the first thing I thought of.

Posted by: SukieTawdry at September 30, 2008 06:57 PM

Since Obama started campaigning, I have, over and over again, found myself exclaiming "My God! What kind of person even thinks such a thing, let alone says it?!" The list is far too long to go into here, but this one is absolutely insane and decidedly chilling.

Can anyone imagine the explosions in the media if anyone on the right produced a video with cherubic youngsters (standing before the banners of The One, wearing the approved garb of The One) singing, in pseudo gospel style, praises to John McCain? The mere idea is preposterous. Not only would no one think of doing that, McCain would be the first to denounce and stop it.

That the left actually thinks such things and produces them is a sobering preview of the utter lack of human decency, restraint and rationality that would be the rule, not the exception, in an administration of he who will lead us to utopia.

Posted by: Mike at September 30, 2008 07:00 PM

Note that it's apparently not the same Jeff Zucker. There does appear to be a lot of professional talent and equipment involved, but maybe that's not surprising considering the main industry of the area. Sad that it's wasted on this.

Posted by: Bryan Costin at September 30, 2008 07:06 PM

This is sick. Really sick. I teach at a large public school and I thank God that my students are given the other side of the story. It reminds me of Stalinist Art and poetry and when we get to that part of the curriculum I'll be guaranteed to show this to my students. Sick, sick people. Screw them. This country is damn near a Banana Republic and when this idiot solidifies the Marxist grip on this naton you can damn well bet there will be a list of people there going after.

Posted by: whiteshadow at September 30, 2008 07:09 PM

Sound familiar?

Thank you, Stalin. Thank you because I am joyful. Thank you because I am well. No matter how old I become, I shall never forget how we received Stalin two days ago. centuries will pass, and the generations still to come will regard us as the happiest of mortals, as the most fortunate of men, because we lived in the century of centuries, because we were privileged to see Stalin, our inspired leader. Yes, and we regard ourselves as the happiest of mortals because we are the contemporaries of a man who never had an equal in world history.

The men of all ages will call on thy name, which is strong, beautiful, wise and marvelous. Thy name is engraven on every factory, every machine, every place on the earth, and in the hearts of all men.

Every time I have found myself in his presence I have been subjugated by his strength, his charm, his grandeur. I have experienced a great desire to sing, to cry out, to shout with joy and happiness. And now see me--me!--on the same platform where the Great Stalin stood a year ago. In what country, in what part of the world could such a thing happen.

I write books. I am an author. All thanks to thee, O great educator, Stalin. I love a young woman with a renewed love and shall perpetuate myself in my children--all thanks to thee, great educator, Stalin. I shall be eternally happy and joyous, all thanks to thee, great educator, Stalin. Everything belongs to thee, chief of our great country. And when the woman I love presents me with a child the first word it shall utter will be : Stalin.

O great Stalin, O leader of the peoples,
Thou who broughtest man to birth.
Thou who fructifies the earth,
Thou who restorest to centuries,
Thou who makest bloom the spring,
Thou who makest vibrate the musical chords...
Thou, splendour of my spring, O thou,
Sun reflected by millions of hearts

written by A. O. Avdienko illustrates by what emotional bonds the individual was tied to Stalin, and through Stalin to the prodigious transformation of the Russian state and society that he was attempting

It is a different Jeff Zucker... Trust me on this...

Posted by: Cayman Man at September 30, 2008 07:52 PM

After fighting to protect our Country and way of life I grow old enough to see our Country become exactly what we were fighting against. Hitlers child Nazis were created just like these people are doing to these children. It is sickening!! and shows how low Socialists can stoop. If these parents have any sense of decency they would tell the teacher and all involved to stop this child abuse and let them be children. They will grow up and make their political decisions when they are capable of understanding different viewpoints.

Posted by: agravated GI at September 30, 2008 07:54 PM

It is probably NOT "The" Jeff Zucker. The copy was originally put on dailykos and has since been taken down. That is the origin of the email address for Sawada, who IS a concert quality pianist. The cache on google still has it.

Posted by: Baxter Greene at September 30, 2008 08:50 PM

Hitler had a propaganda minister, I think his name was Rosenberg, who was very good at this sort of thing. He even proclaimed a doctrine adopted by the Democrats: If you tell a lie long enough and often enough people come to believe it. Zucker seems to have adapted the doctine for NBC.

Posted by: Bob Reade at September 30, 2008 09:07 PM

Fun fact: Four of the five individuals mentioned above as having helped produce this musical atrocity are...of Jewish heritage.

You'd think they'd have learned a thing or two about personality cults by now.

You'd think.

this is why I am blessed to be able to homeschool my 6 yr old granddaughter,I wonder if any of the parents of these children were republican.My grandchild would have let her christian values show up.This is satanic!

Posted by: gail at September 30, 2008 10:40 PM

Makes you think of the milliions Herr Obama got though that project in Chicago with Ayers and parted sweets sums to fellow radicals to start indoctrination "schools" for children. Weather underground types armed by their own goverment to promote subversiveness against it. I wonder who were all the adults in the audience and if there was anyone we would know by name from having "made the news" for some sort of civil disobedience. You sort of are looking to see Ayers rise up from the group clapping gleefully away. Note the "Imagine" printed above the Obama mantras bringing to mind the atheistic marxist song of John Lennon. If I heard right the children spoke of Obama making the world one or as the marxist Lennon song goes, "And the world will live as one". What they don't tell you is it will come through totalitarianism and in fact it never reaches that "brotherhood" as many are killed or disappear who dare speak against the elite "who know better" and like staying in power. These types if they can't get into power through political means will do it through violence or a least try to. Quick change of subject, our US Congress needs reform. They all need 2 term limits and if anyone has exceeded that currently can wave bye bye as their term ends. Secondly, they all must be subject to passed laws past and present. Thirdly all lobbiests are to be made illegal on the hill and any representative or senator found to be receiving "gifts" to pass legislation should be booted off the hill and well as indicted. Fourthly, anyone and I mean EVERYONE seeking office in our goverment should be thoroughly background checked with necessary records revealed to the public. Currently Barack Hussien Obama is stepping around the "metal detectors" and being allowed to do so. Imagine that, pray for that, speak up about that, vote for that. NOBAMA!

I am a Frenchman who was born shortly after WWII. This video is repulsive. It reminds me of the videos they used to show us in grade school of Nazi propaganda. These children will grow up to be the Obama Youth and will build concentration camps to kill anyone that does not agree with them.

Although it means nothing, because I am not an american, I had supported Obama up until now. This scares me, god help us all.

Posted by: Jacques Landiss at October 1, 2008 09:26 PM

BO's official fan blogs have purged this. Google also has a cache of the page. An interesting look at the type of personality behind this kind of stuff.
They seem genuinely embarassed by this particular effort. I would suggest ripping and reposting in perpetuity. This video mustn't disappear. It's too good an illustration of what these pods are really up to.

Wow, it seems that America is heading down the path of totalitarian communism, as in the 1930's. Those 5th columnists never really went away, they have just awakened and are on the march with Chairman Hussein Obama.

Posted by: Chris at October 2, 2008 08:59 AM

I live in LA and I know people like this who live on the west side, are very liberal, and many are in the entertainment industry.

The way the kids sing as if in Sunday school, but about a politician, while the parents watch approvingly, is sad and disturbing. The parents think it is good to indoctrinate their kids with their politics. Kids should not have to worry about politics at this age.

Posted by: MPC at October 2, 2008 09:09 AM

Does no one remember the Hatch Act that forbids public servants to act in a manner that appears to be supporting any political figure in an election?

Even if this was not filmed at the school, the teacher recruited and rehearsed the children at their school. A definite ignorance of the public servant position in election times.

Not only do I deplore the premise, I also am frightened by this attitude of 'messiah-ness' portrayed by these innocent children. Is this a preview of four years with Senator Obama? What will we look like, as a country, at the end of four years?

Posted by: Jan Seago at October 2, 2008 10:30 AM

When I was a teenager in the fifties, I was shocked and appalled by a newspaper article with an accompanying photo showing people protesting integration in public schools in the south. A pretty young blond girl of about five years of age was holding a sign that said "No N****rs In My School." I felt the use of children in this way was a horrible thing. I have since been disappointed in seeing the children in N Korea, and videos of children in other totalitarion countries singing praises to leaders there. To see this in America is so appalling it should shock the public conscience. While I am sure Obama did not have a hand in producing this, it points to an uncomfortable and disconcerting future under his RULE. I understand he actually posted it to his website until it started backfiring.

Posted by: Tony Mc at October 2, 2008 10:52 AM

if anyone is a student of either Art or History, please go look at the sad and very revealing images of jewish children in the Nazi concentration camps by a woman artist by the name of Kaethe Kollwitz. She,a jew, originally was ordered to do propaganda ads for Hitler and his thugs. During this same time she was able to record the horrid images of children and mothers who had no voice,no sing song, being held in these death camps. Thus, she gave these souls a voice that will never ever leave you once you view her drawings.

pending death

i don't like this ad, don't think it's effective, but i do think you all are being a bunch of hysterical ninnies about it. comparing obama to hitler? good god. get a grip. consider the alternative--mcsame.

Posted by: lrose at October 3, 2008 10:23 AM


do you honestly fail to see the stunning similarities between this and the previous use of children by the Nazi's and communists to sing praises to their leaders?

Both the children and the imagery chosen and used by this campaign are eerily similar to methods used by Hitler, Stalin and Mao.

perhaps it is you, and the blind loyalists to BH Obama, who need a reality check.

BTW - mcsame? I didn't see him recruiting a bunch of innocent children to sing his praises...
