We all have different points of view when it comes to politics. Especially during election season, these views are expressed more often and openly about presidential candidates. This is what we expect every four years – no matter how harsh the criticisms and opinions might be.
What we don’t usually see is the world of politics reaching children. However, young Isaac Anthony has many firm reasons as to why he dislikes President Obama. In a YouTube video posted just two days ago, Isaac explains his top ten reasons to keep Obama out of office. According to the young boy, Obama is “taking money from people who work hard” and “keeping people on welfare and food stamps”.
Since the video hit YouTube it has already reached 160,000 views. As expected (and probably desired) the video has raised much controversy within the comments below and across Twitter. Mixed responses range from full-hearted agreement to the complete opposite. Though, beyond the point of the video, many people are blaming the boy’s parents – claiming that its a prime example of indoctrination. It is hard to believe that the child was able to form such detailed opinions alone, and was likely lead to believe was he was told.
What is your reaction to this video? Are the parent to blame for the boy’s harsh opinions?
