NBC News handpicked anti-Trump tykes for two propaganda videos to make it appear that every child in American thinks Pres. Trump is an ignorant racist and threat to the country.
Not one child in either “Dear Mr. President: kids Talk Trump” or “Dear Mr. President: Letters from the American Children” says he actually supports Trump’s efforts to keep America safe from terrorism or stop the influx of illegal aliens.
Both videos open with smarmy, false compliments to give the illusion that these kids haven’t been indoctrinated by leftist teachers and liberal media…but, then, both launch into unrelenting snide rebukes couched in innocent-kid-speak.
The kids accuse Trump of racism and violence against blacks:
- “Most of my family is black. I’m afraid that you’re gonna hurt some of us blacks.”
- “You are here, attempting to white-wash America.”
- “I don’t like your definition of American, because I don’t seem to fit within it.”
These adolescent activists really, really don’t want a border wall or travel ban on state-sponsors of terror, because it’s not “nice” and “fair”:
- “Not letting immigrants into America is really not nice, so please let them in.”
- “It’s not fair for refugees.”
- “Just because I’m Mexican, doesn’t mean you can build a wall around the country.”
- “Please don’t build a wall, and don’t let people have guns.”
- “P.S. – Please don’t build a wall around Mexico.”
- “P.P.S. – Please, please don’t stop the refugees from coming.”
- “You’re going to separate me away from the rest of my family, and I really don’t want that because I love them too much.”
- “Some of my friends are really scared about you building a wall, and the travel ban, because a lot of their families live in different places.”
Many of the comments aren’t issue-oriented at all – they’re just thinly-veiled insults and personal attacks:
- “Maybe, next time, sit down in a quiet room and fully think about what you’re going to do before you decide to do it.”
- “Who will build this country up again from the rubble you will put it under?”
- “Right now, you are just kinda in the middle, you’re swaying towards bad, but I think you can sway back to good.”
- “There’s no need to garner so much hate for countries based on the actions of a single group or organization.”
- “I want you to know that us kids are not always wrong.”
- “You may be the most powerful man in the servant, but you are still the servant to every one of us.”
And, then, there’s this rebuke from a young lady who appears in both videos:
“When you speak on things that make me feel uncomfortable or I disagree with, you make me feel small, because I know I can’t change it.”
Apparently, the president should never disagree with her or say things she doesn’t like because it’ll hurt Susie Snowflake’s feelings.
So, NBC chose to reject any comments from children who actually support the president’s policies. And, they are out there – like this eight year-old in Texas who was kicked out of his home by his mom because he voted for Trump is his school’s mock election – and this 11 year-old Trump supporter in Virginia who was beaten up at school for the same reason.
And, then, there’s this teen girl in California who was physically assaulted at school for supporting Trump.
So, while it defies reason that NBC didn’t get a single pro-Trump comment, maybe, those kids were just too scared to speak up for fear of being brutalized by the so-called “tolerant” kids.
Both videos ask kids, “What do you want to tell President Trump?” and invite them to “Share your message with us” – but, it appears NBC deliberately cherry-picked the children to create propaganda, not to reflect what America’s kids really think.
