GooTube: Dems” Kiddie Propaganda Arm, by Michelle Malkin

In case you hadn’t heard, Vice President Kamala Harris’ endeavor into federal government area propaganda for kids was a stellar bust.

The veep’s smarmy efficiency in a NASA agitprop video promoting World Area Week was generally mocked and exposed this weekend after a regional Monterey, California, television station talked to among 5 kid stars who auditioned for functions in the YouTube production. Canada-based Sinking Ship Home Entertainment (does it get any much better than this?) cast and supervise the scripted unique for YouTube Originals, which the New york city Post called “bizarre.” The Sun in the U.K. called it “cringe-worthy.” It was phony-baloney on steroids (or possibly one a lot of mimosas, evaluating from Harris’ sloshed shipment).

However there’s a lot more to the story.

What the “Get Curious With Vice President Harris” clip actually reveals is how deep the incestuous ties in between the Biden-Harris (mis)administration and Google/YouTube run — and why every moms and dad ought to be extremely cautious about enabling their kids to be exposed to GooTube’s commie-style shows masquerading as instructional home entertainment.

Did you understand, for instance, that the innovative executive and manufacturer for YouTube Originals is a seasoned Obama-Biden operative, expert on the Biden-Harris administration’s vaccine education project, and close previous assistant of Michelle Obama? YouTube Originals’ staffer Lauren Vrazilek tweeted recently that she “had a blast” making the Harris video. She tagged 4 leading Harris staffers in her tweet: VP interactions director Ashley Etienne, VP digital strategist Brenna Parker, VP director of press operations Peter Velz and VP individual assistant Opal Vadhan.

Velz promoted the “Get Curious” video recently, tweeting that Harris welcomed “five kids from around the country to her residence at the Naval Observatory to learn about space and be inquisitive.” He called it “super cute,” however stopped working to discuss that the young entertainers were not simply naturally “inquisitive,” however had actually all been auditioned ahead of time to guarantee they might ask Harris concerns on hint.

For those who are, ahem, curious, Vrazilek functioned as previous very first girl Michelle Obama’s media expert on her “Becoming” book trip in 2018-2019. Prior to that, the YouTube Originals innovative director and manufacturer worked for the Obama White Home for almost 6 years as an intern, director of correspondence, associate director of digital engagement, and deputy press secretary to Mrs. Obama. When Biden-Harris took workplace in January, Vrazilek exulted on Twitter:

“Apparently when you don’t work in DC people expect you to work on Inauguration Day? I had a bowl of ice cream and a cry before 8am — the chances of me doing anything but gushing over President Biden and Madam Vice President Harris are slim to none.”


“Slim to none” are likewise the chances that moms and dads can count on YouTube to supply anything besides inclined persuading to their kids. Google/YouTube’s moms and dad business, Alphabet, handed over $21 million to Democrats in 2020. The revolving door in between Google and White Home Democrats is well-known. In April 2016, the Project for Responsibility tracked 61 Google or Google-tied workers leaving the tech corporation to take federal government tasks and 171 Obama-Biden staffers leaping ship to work for Google.

Much more insidiously, you need to keep in mind that GooTube has actually consistently breached kids’s personal privacy:
— Google/YouTube confessed to information mining kids’s e-mails without permission and in infraction of the Household Educational Rights and Personal Privacy Act.

— In 2019, the Federal Trade Commission imposed a $170 million fine versus Google/YouTube over its infraction of the federal Kid’s Online Personal privacy Defense Act.

— Last September, Google/YouTube was slapped with a huge class-action suit in the U.K. implicating “the platform of routinely breaking U.K. and European data protection laws by unlawfully targeting up to five million under-13-year-olds with addictive programming and harvesting their data for advertisers.” Legal representatives for households berated the Silicon Valley giant in their statement, declaring officers and workers “know full well that millions of children watch YouTube. They’re making money from unlawfully harvesting data about these young children as they watch YouTube videos — and then running highly targeted adverts, designed to influence vulnerable young minds.”

Genuinely curious reporters in the Beltway may need to know more about the number of more Lauren Vrazileks are planted at Google/YouTube and working thoroughly with Biden/Harris to drain political shows for young online addicts whose information is being mined, generated income from and weaponized by the manufactured-reality supervisors of Huge Tech.
