This is a first for us. This is not a publicity stunt. This is rather astonishing.
For those who have not seen it, the You Tube video depicted an assortment of kiddie-winkies, aged roughly eight to 11, singing the praises of Democratic candidate for President, Barack Obama, at the behest (gunpoint?) of their exceedingly enthusiastic parents or guardians.
As the video served not so much to inspire support for Mr. Obama as to conjure images of previous politically motivated youth indoctrination efforts not particularly in the interest of either youth or humanity in general, it has been removed from YouTube.; understandable from a political point of view – not to mention pathetic and laughable.
What is not understandable nor laughable and more frightening than pathetic, is that our post linking to this video has been somehow stricken from the front page of our blog. A screen grab of the post is pictured above. Oddly the post remains in our dashboard. A mere technical glitch then? Entirely possible. But this has never occurred before. And as it coincides with the removal of the video from YouTube – in fact the entire http://www.singforchange.com/ website is gone – we smell something of a rat.
We shall continue our investigation. If this is NOT a mere coincidence or technical error, we shall squawk our vehement displeasure from the highest mountains.
