Seraphic Secret is struck, but not surprised, at the way Islamists use and abuse their children in the endless war against Western civilization. Here’s a clip of a child preacher from Egyptian TV.
The kid has no idea what he’s saying. He’s just repeating what he’s been taught, regurgitating hate like a robot. In a few years, he’ll strap on a suicide belt and kill dozens of innocent men, women and children.
Seraphic Secret is also struck, but not surprised, that Democrats also use and abuse their children in their jihad against Conservatives. Democrats, like Islamists, draft innocent children into their vulgar propaganda efforts. Here’s the latest child abuse in service to the cult of Barack Hussein Obama, a truly creepy Village of the Damned effort. Again, the children have little idea what the lyrics mean. But they have been indoctrinated into an ideology based on hatred of infidels, in this case, non-Democrats.
Their parents should be arrested for child abuse.
Totalitarian regimes have always enshrined policies whereby children are brainwashed into becoming true believers. The goal of tyrannies is to make obsolete family and religion by replacing these foundations of a civil society with a single political ideology, under the rule of one man, who is invariably deified.
Communists enshrined Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Che, Castro, Kim Jong Il. And of course, Hitler was a pagan deity to the German people.
No one can deny that Barack Hussein Obama was sold as a new messiah.
Islamists also work through a cult of personality: Muhammed is their big man, and Muslim children, by the millions, are taught to believe that killing infidels — especially Jews — is a Muslim’s highest duty.
Democrats are now using the Islamist playbook.
Update: J.E. Dyer, CDR, USN (Ret.) also writes a compelling post at her excellent blog, The Optimistic Conservative: Existential Crisis: Apparently, The Political Left Has Gone Completely Insane. Dyer makes the excellent point that the ad with the singing children is Stalinist in nature, reminding us of the days when children were encouraged to accuse their parents of counter-revolutionary activity.
