The Five

Pint-sized propaganda?

This is a rush transcript from "The Five," October 29, 2012. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: So last week, we saw that creepy ad by a young female celebrity comparing voting for Obama to having sex. Remember how artists were supposed to speak truth to power, now they just want to make out it with. They are propagandist willing to turn blind eye to anything to preserve their self-involved fanaticism.

And as always, kids become part of the brainwash.

(BEGIN WEB VIDEO CLIP)

CHILDREN (singing): We're the children of the future, American through and through. But something happened to our country, and we're kind of blaming you.

We haven't killed all the polar bears, but it's not for lack of trying. The Earth is cracked, Big Bird is sacked, and the atmosphere is frying.

(END WEB VIDEO CLIP)

GUTFELD: How lovely, a hymn to the Dear Leader. Why not? He's copying the North Korea economy. Might as well go all the way.

But notice how it's only the left who excels at the group think, kiddie indoctrination stuff.

Say what you will, nobody does lockstep better than a lib.

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, CO-HOST: Yes.

GUTFELD: And really, enough with the wisdom of the children. Children make noise, not policy. They also steal change from your pants.

But you can't form an army without a uniform. Hence Urban Outfitters' new shirt is all designed to ridicule those who are different.

Funny how rebellion these days is considered un-cool by the left. If James Dean were alive today, he'd vote for Romney and trash Urban Outfitters.

For it's not hip to slavishly follow a leader. It's also not hip to force kids to recite your bitter, predictable beliefs. That's not cool. That's Koresh, the opposite of hip.

Whether it's Lena Dunham or Urban Outfitters, if you're watching the self-consciously cool kids bleat like the secret sheep they are. And it reveals who the real rebels -- you.

Dana, nothing creepier than kids singing.

DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: I hate kids -- frogs and kids. I do like puppies.

GUTFELD: You do like puppies, but puppies can't sing.

Creepiest ad?

PERINO: Yes. If you go online you can read the words that the kids have to sing about the Republicans want to kill people and make them drink poison water. And you think, so if you are indoctrinating kids like that, you are raising them not to think for themselves.

So then later on, you are going to make your own bed. This is the kind of thing that gets in their head. They either could rebel or, they could -- you know, continue on.

GUTFELD: Join a cult. Join a Beckel cult.

You love that ad, didn't you?

BOB BECKEL, CO-HOST: I loved it. I thought that was exactly right on the money. I think it's a way to appeal to --

(CROSSTALK)

BECKEL: No, I think it's exactly right, that there is a consequence of putting somebody like Mitt Romney in the White House. And those consequences we don't know what this guy is about because he never says what he means and means what he says.

GUTFELD: Sounds familiar.

BECKEL: If you have Republicans in charge of the House and in the White House, there's going to be some dangerous policy that's going to be inflicted on the American people.

GUTFELD: All right. So let's use kids.

BECKEL: Yes, why not?

ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: I don't want to jump in front of you here, Kimberly, but the video was made by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, known for "Got Milk" advertising campaign.

BECKEL: Used to be a Republican, right?

BOLLING: Here's the issue. Who paid for it and why? I mean, was this Obama ad?

I mean, I don't know. Was it Obama? If it wasn't Obama, was it some liberal group that said, hey, let's get kids if front of the screen, making look like hostage videos or Cory Booker when he got --

BECKEL: It was a group of advertising agencies.

(CROSSTALK)

GUTFELD: Destroyed in the flood.

GUILFOYLE: With Bob's research, yes.

GUTFELD: K.G., you have a young child -- some say adorable, though there is a debate over that -- would you allow your kid to take part if political ad, whether you supported the ad or not?

GUILFOYLE: No. I think it's so improper to do that, especially kids are very impressionable. And here you are trying to program like the hate-filled robots, like back in day, Soviet Union or North Korea or China. That is so un-American.

How improper to use a child for your own political purposes. It's disgusting. It really is.

And when you see an ad like, I think it works against Obama because who wants to see children spouting out hate.

GUTFELD: Like zombies.

GUILFOYLE: No, it's not nice at all.

BECKEL: I did an agenda in 1984 showing a bunch of kids in an elementary school and bombs going off for Mondale.

Twenty-five years later people would come up to me now all grown up and said, you scared the hell out of me. You realize that!

PERINO: You know what? Several people told me you still do that to them today.

BECKEL: Well, that's a given.

PERINO: When I was a kid, I sang this land is your land this land is my land -- isn't that what kids are supposed to sing?

GUILFOYLE: That's charming. That's sweet.

BECKEL: That's politically --

GUILFOYLE: Bob and ACORN want to register the kids in Ohio right about now.

BECKEL: Absolutely, absolutely! We will.

GUTFELD: All right. We ran out of time.
