Hmm...this could be a good thing. Heh.
Nickelodeon is trying to brainwash your children in the morning, or a leftist primer
You can watch the video clip here.
AWTM suggests that you pay particular attention to the second and fourth parts of the segment.
She shows a group of "tweenagers" walking around in orange jumpsuits, hooded and yelling from a bullhorn. "We are not ok, with people being tortured by American soldiers!" "Are cooperation's priority over human lives?"
There is also a call for the impeachment of the President in the second segment of the video, "democracy is at stake because of the President violating the Constitution".
The fourth segment of video shows another tweenager, who has put together a video of wounded Iraqi children, with the song Jesus Loves Me playing over it. This teenager blames America, the military, for what is happening in Iraq. This young girl says "she finds, videos and facts on the Internet" to show what is REALLY happening in Iraq. I am guessing she is getting these images from Al Jazeera.
Now, imagine this...my six year old is watching one of the limited number of approved channels one morning. Her daddy has just returned home from a 15-month tour in Iraq. She's aware of where he's been. After "Dora, the Explorer", a segment comes on that shows kids slightly older than her yelling about American soldiers torturing detainees and Iraqis. That's followed up by another segment showing images of injured and maimed Middle Eastern children set to the song "Jesus Loves Me" being sung by a child.
Then daddy comes into the room and his daughter asks him why he was torturing the people in Iraq and why he lied to her when he told her that his mission was to HELP the Iraqis.
HOW. DARE. THEY?
