Hey, I’ve been around a bit in my life. I’ve seen a lot of cheesy, bizarre, even surreal things take place during political rallies–like the time a horse bit the candidate I was a media advisor for square on the butt. Don’t even ask!–but what transpired at a Donald Trump rally yesterday is like a vignette dreamed up by Salvador Dali on acid. Yeah, it was that strange.
In the video below, you will see the “USA Freedom Kids” performing a song to the same tune as the World War I recruiting jingle “Over There.” Here are some of the lyrics:
Are you serious?
Apologies for freedom, I can’t handle this.
When freedom rings, answer the call!
On your feet, stand up tall!
Freedom’s on our shoulders, USA!
Enemies of freedom face the music, c’mon boys, take them down
President Donald Trump knows how to make America great
Deal from strength or get crushed every time.
Now I know that I may have, in the past, overstated how much a Trump campaign event reminds me of underground German theatre performed in an overlit circus tent, but this thing reeks of Leni Riefenstahl making movies for the Nazis. It’s freaking bizarre and deeply creepy.
Try to watch the whole thing without shivering out of fear and disgust. This is enough to make anyone reach for a barf bag.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Please Welcome the USA Freedom Kids!
