It’s wisdom from the mouths of babes, and it has gone viral. It’s a cute YouTube video of a 6-year-old boy giving 10 reasons not to vote for Barack Obama. But the story here is something else: While it wasn’t their intention, many of the president’s supporters are giving at least 10 more. And number one is the character of the Left revealed by the vicious, vile comments under the video, in which some liberals say they want to murder the little boy. Literally.
The video was originally posted by Patriot Update, and it features tiny Isaac Anthony, toy gun on his hip and cutely rendered words on his lip. But this didn’t deter the disgusting respondents, a sample of whose comments follows (from a PatriotUpdate.com article on the subject).
Notice that one of the comments has seven thumbs-up. And here’s one I’ll print out so it can be sanitized enough for family consumption:
GO F*** YOUR MOTHER YOU LITTLE ****SUCKING HOMOPHOBIC GUN LOVING ****SUCKER IF YOU WERE MY F****** KID I WOULD BE GIVING THE BIGGEST S**T KICKING OF A LIFETIME YOU LITTLE GOOD GOD FEARING GOOD FOR F****** NOTHING F****** ****SUCKER!!!!!!
Nice guys, huh? Perhaps more appropriate screen names for such posters would be “Khmer Rouge” or “Pol Pot.”
Of course, whenever a young child espouses political positions, the words were put in his mouth by an adult. But this makes the reaction all the worse. Even if you disagree with the sentiments, why put the onus on a little boy who is merely doing what he’s told?
As to this, liberals are no strangers to using children to relate political messages, as the 2008 videos of kids singing for and paying homage to Obama prove. And conservatives certainly complained — about brainwashing and using children. Yet I don’t remember any of them wishing that they could snuff the life out of the youngsters. Heck, I can’t even recall any who wished death upon the adults manipulating the kids. That’s a brand of bloodthirsty rage confined, seemingly, to the Left.
What this again underlines is that in civilization there are those who strive to reflect virtue and those who immerse themselves in vice and that, in our time, the latter group is known as progressives. There are scientific studies bearing this out, too, such as those cited in the article “Don't listen to the liberals — Right-wingers really are nicer people, latest research shows.” It’s a must-read.
It’s ironic that the ideologues who preach love, compassion, tolerance, open-mindedness, and sensitivity project hatred onto anyone or anything that disagrees with them, even if it’s just Chick-fil-A or children. As the saying goes, “There’s no one as illiberal as a liberal.”
Anyway, it’s no wonder leftists have such sympathy for murderous Muslim terrorists. They’re birds of a feather.
