Other Tyrants Who Have Used Children As Props

Long-time readers know that I rarely, if ever, link to Alex Jones and Infowars since he and his crew have in the past lifted stuff of mine and my friends without attribution and, wittingly or not, peddled breathless disinformation as smoking hot gospel. (His second segment on Piers Morgan about how the Feds blew up the Twin Towers was particularly self-discrediting.) But this is too priceless to pass up and not give credit for.

Similar theme, better dictator-with-crowd-of-kids photos: The Minuteman: Some Historical Context

Includes a quote:
"The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation."

-Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler, Publ. Houghton Miflin, 1943, Page 403

Perhaps Jones is still "lifting" stuff. I saw the Stalin/children thing on potterwilliams way before he posted his.

Even though Todd is just another professional progressive bureaucratic toad with a law degree, let us hope he can recognize the difference between right and wrong, constitutional and non-constitutional.

Hell, while I'm at it I might as well hope that the progressives realize their goal of "Utopian social justice" and equality of outcome regardless of effort is an unattainable wet dream and turn toward restoring liberty and prosperity in this country.

Democrats are the filth of the planet.

No ONE of them protested that disgusting display. Silence is consent.

Progressives always use kids as props-

Unless it's at a pro-abortion rally.

funny, I didn't see props, I saw human shields. I expect to see this a lot more from his lordship.
