Here's The One Thing...
Last night I told you we're on the road to socialism. When I finish this story you may believe we're on the road to the Hitler Youth. Here's the latest example, and buckle up because it could get even bumpier than yesterday.
One of my radio listeners gave me this exclusive story. This is Al Gore speaking to a bunch of teens and pre-teens at a youth conference on global warming — or as he's now calling it “climate change”:
(BEGIN SOUND CLIP)
AL GORE, FORMER VICE PRESIDENT OF UNITED STATES: There are some things about our world that you know that older people don't know
(END SOUND CLIP)
I'm going to play more of this tape for you in a moment, and introduce you to the 12-year-old who recorded it and her dad. But what's the point? You're all working hard right now to raise your kids right. In many cases, both you and your spouse work and some of you are working two jobs.
You're tired of dealing with screaming bosses, an economy that's falling apart, a government that's out of control and doing it without any help.
Now the former vice president of the United States — and a Nobel Prize winner — is looking your kids in the eye and telling them they know things that you don't. Try to beat that, mom and dad! What do you know?
You tell me what a 12-year-old knows instinctively that an adult doesn't — except maybe how to play Guitar Hero. And if it is true, then why didn't we appoint a 12-year-old to lead the treasury instead of Tim Geithner or be the new climate czar? Why does our Constitution state that the president has to be thirty-five? I'm sure he's trapped in some of that old thinking, so shouldn't we make sure at least the vice president is twelve?
The government and its friends are indoctrinating our children all for control of their minds, your freedom of choice and our future.
It must stop, because history when taught properly has already shown us where it leads. This is what the Nazi Joseph Goebbels said about the Hitler Youth:
"If such an art of active mass influence through propaganda is joined with the long-term systematic education of a nation and if both are conducted in a unified and precise way, the relationship between the leadership and the nation will always remain close."
What's next? If mom and dad decide to keep the temperature above 72, should our "Gore Youth" report mom and dad? Should they also report spankings and groundings and every time daddy comes home and watches FOX News?
Environmentalists — along with everyone else looking to promote an agenda — understand that the drug dealer business model can work for them: Get kids hooked on when they're young and you'll have a customer for life.
