Americans abusing kids as political props

November 24, 2007 | Filed Under Activism, political, propaganda, religion 

If it’s not some Senator waving pictures of America’s children to pass SCHIP, it’s another waving the American flag with one hand and holding a child in the other. Children are great pieces of propaganda when used properly, and it looks like the manipulation doesn’t stop inside our borders. Below is an image of a muslim child holding an American flag.

It could be that this picture was taken by the little girl’s parents to show their support for the United States efforts overseas. Or, it could be that some reporter wanted a photograph that would impress the boss. Maybe, it was taken by CIA agents hoping to keep the political war away from the fire.

Whatever the reasons for the visual, it does send a strong message. Children will forever be exploited as long as mankind continues along this path of hatred, intolerance, violence and war. Does anyone know the origin of the picture? Better yet, feel free to contribute your own theories or opinions on this political artwork.

    Maybe a kid was photographed holding an American flag? Do you think that’s what happened?

    Cute. :)

    To be honest, after I read your comment it made me consider the fact that I am a racist pig. My instincts tell me the image is political and manipulative, if not very consistent with tactics used to coerce people of the world. On the other hand, not having an adequate history of the image makes this entirely speculative and frankly, if it is an American enjoying a day at the ballpark, then I’ve just unknowingly engaged in a petty form of racism.
