Propoganda is a virtue

So, the other day, an interesting link popped up on the side of my gmail. It was advertising a book written, presumably by democrats, for children called “Why Mommy Is a Democrat.” I was intrigued. Allow me to give you a mini tour of this book:

This is the front cover. A friendly squirrel momma and her bright eyed and bushy tailed youngster. How happy he is! Why, you ask? Clearly, because Mommy is a Democrat!

Page one: Observe, a rich older (white) couple, walk past a poor, disenfranchised man, without even offering assistance. While Mommy, on the other hand, encourages us to share our toys with mouse; just because he is a different species than us doesn’t make him bad.

Page two: Holy Crap! Does that guy have it rough or what? Now a great white elephant is about to trample him! An elephant, get it? get it? subtle, right?

Page three: Hey, I don’t have 160,000 to pay for school…wait a second, isn’t that the same WASPy couple that wouldnt help a brother out two pages ago? Man are they bad. I wonder what they are supposed to represent. BTW, now we are walking to school with mouse, and eating healthful organic fruit.

Although I thought it was a joke, it apparently is not, there were some people who were not so thrilled with this book. While eating sour grapes (no really, they just happened to be eating grapes that weren’t quite ripe) they came up with this:

yep. and this:

Hmm…this could really apply to extremists on both sides. and my personal favorite, this:

Now perhaps I am naive, but I was unaware of the entire niche market for propagandizing children. I mean like democrats as much as the next guy, but I gotta say, this book should be titled: “How to Make Sure Your Children Reject Your Beliefs and Become Fat Blood-sucking Republicans.”

Not to worry though, all those children of democrats becoming republicans as a way of rebelling will be replaced with children of republicans becoming democrats after reading this book:

Amazon’s description of the book follows: “This full-color illustrated book is a fun way for parents to teach young children the valuable lessons of conservatism. Written in simple text, readers can follow along with Tommy and Lou as they open a lemonade stand to earn money for a swing set. But when liberals start demanding that Tommy and Lou pay half their money in taxes, take down their picture of Jesus, and serve broccoli with every glass of lemonade, the young brothers experience the downside to living in Liberaland.”

Also offered in the series are, “Help, Mom, Hollywood’s in My Hamper!” and “Help, Mom, the 9th Circuit Nabbed the Nativity!” self-explanatory.

So for all you parents, would be parents, and want to be parents, get your propaganda in early and hope that at least your rich republican children will be willing to support your poor retired ass.

Seriously people, don’t brainwash people, even if they are little people and its easy to do. Because how far is it until it turns into this: Nazi children propaganda

And now, for your moment of Zen, there is this…which I’m not quite sure I understand:
