Sing For Change Video Withdrawn - 100s of parodies posted

Here's a good post I found about the Sing for Change video. I just did a search and omigod, there are dozens of "tributes" interspersing it with videos of Hitler, Mao, North Korean and other socialist and facist kid propoganda. I don't think I saw even one sympathetic response. The original which I spotted has been made private, so nobody can see the original post, the only versions you can see are the anti-Obama versions, some unchanged from the original.

Looks like unlike the MSM, conservatism is alive and well in the blogosphere and YouTube-sphere. Similarly, nearly every "Obama mortgage crisis" video is anti-Democrat, some like "burning down the house" have logged 1-2 million hits.

KathySawada video... Read Lori Kalner again after this one...
UPDATE @ 7:27PM Oct 2, 2008... she has once again made HER video 'Private'... Ok, so now Kathysawada seems to have it back on, OR IMAO has been given access. (Read Lori Kalner letter again after you read this one... for clarity).Kathy Sawada had made it private, removed most of the comments (the majority speaking of very similar feelings as Lori Kalner expressed), which I had copied because I had a FEELING that they were going to disappear. As I watched her youtube site, MANY of those were reported as SPAM, though they were not. There were PAGES of comments from Sept 30, suddenly down to 74, and then, in the time it took to go from one view to another view (read all comments), it dropped to 54. Yes, Kathysawada was online. Those 20 missing were at that time, still there, marked as spam, and I read them, as well. They were not spam, they WERE mostly critical of the video.So, the link through IMAO is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW9b0xr06qA&eurl=http://www.imao.us/There are also three videos in response at this writing...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMnk29qgSHI&watch_responseThis one has the sound of glass breaking, and it reminds me of Krystalnacht...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdm6AX8VtLQ&watch_responseThis one is the Three Stooges (you can skip it if you like)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58HAEmfZdhg&watch_responseThis one uses the infamous song using Obama's words "Yes, We Can", etc, but intersperses comments/photos...OH... one more thing. THIS is her description of the 'event'....

Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon... Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon, when 22 children, ages 5-12, gathered to sing original songs in the belief that their singing would lift up our communities for the coming election. Light, hope, courage and love shine through these nonvoting children who believe that their very best contribution to the Obama campaign is to sing.Sing for Change was a confluence of hard work, good will, and shared vision. Inspired by ideas raised at a grassroots Obama fundraiser, a music teacher, Kathy Sawada, and the children composed and rehearsed the songs in less than two weeks. Several musicians heard of the effort and volunteered to accompany the children. Parents and older siblings designed and provided the T-Shirts and the banner. There's a first for everything, but rarely do so many firsts come together at once: for the children and their parents, this is their first performance, first video, first banner, and first involvement with grassroots work on a presidential campaign.As Sunday approached, a neighbor volunteered a home. Production wizards got wind of the project and offered their help in recording it.What we accomplished in a few hours on a Sunday afternoon embodies the nature of the Obama campaign: its grassroots inspiration, its inclusiveness, its community building. People pitched in quickly for a cause that resonated with them. There were not many conditions: "Think this is a good idea? Want to help? Great. Sunday at 12:00." At the heart of the project were 22 children and their music. The willingness of all involved to come together for them was a testament to our hope, unity, courage, joy and belief in the future represented by these children.We are offering the video to everyone, the Obama campaign and all media with high hopes that we can all join together to Sing for Change.Technical info: Running time = 3 minutes; Standard Definition and HD Broadcast qualityWE'RE GONNA CHANGE THE WORLDWe're gonna spread happinessWe're gonna spread freedomObama's gonna change itObama's gonna lead 'emWe're gonna change itAnd rearrange itWe're gonna change the world.SING FOR CHANGEMusic and lyrics by Kathy SawadaNow's the moment, lift each voice to singSing with all your heart!For our children, for our families,Nations all joined as one.Sing for joy and sing abundant peace,Courage, justice, hope!Sing together, hold each precious hand,Lifting each other up;Sing for vision, sing for unity,Lifting our hearts to Sing!YES WE CANMusic and lyrics by Kathy SawadaYes we canLift each other upIn peace, in love, in hopeChange!
