WashPost Lines Up Third Graders to Denounce Trump

(News Busters) In July, The Washington Post assembled a grade-school “Kids Chorus” to sing/mock Trump’s tweets over bongo drums.

That same spirit infuses a story in Sunday’s Washington Post Magazine, interviewing third-grade students for their opinions on Trump and issues they think define Trump — racism, immigration, police brutality, “inequality and privilege,” and climate change. And for Hillary Clinton, they asked about gender stereotyping and when we’ll get a female president.

To no one’s surprise, the Post had just as much trouble locating a conservative or Republican third-grader as they do in pretty much every other news story they produce.

RELATED: WashPost’s Milbank Claims ‘There’s No Such Thing As a Trump Democrat’

The Post writer, Britt Peterson, chose four elementary schools, and “In the three classes where I asked how many students would have voted for Hillary Clinton, all hands went up. (I didn’t ask this question at Bellows Spring, but no one expressed support for Donald Trump there either.)” Two were in D.C., and two were in Maryland. Zero were in Virginia…too purple.

This doesn’t cause Peterson or the Post to keep trying for a little balance, for some viewpoint diversity. No thanks, we like it one-sided! Kids say the darnedest things, isn’t it cute? They started with hating or fearing President Trump:

Mason Felice, Bellows Spring: I’m scared now that Donald Trump’s president, because ever since he was president a lot of bad things have been happening.

Devonte Holland, DC Scholars: I think that Hillary should’ve won because people are saying that Trump cheated in the election because they said he was working with Russia or ISIS or something…

Makalynn Dunn, DC Scholars: I would vote for Hillary Clinton because Donald Trump doesn’t like black people and Hillary Clinton does…

    Like Adolf Hitler in the 1940’s the Washington post now uses little children to push their agenda to trash Trump. Totally deplorable and disgusting these Anti-American Socialist traitors. USMC and proud to has served.

    • Zardoz

      Bravo Zulu!

    • Bill

      Hitler used the little children then destroyed the history books. The people of his country never saw it coming. SOMEBODY is fueling the problems in OUR country.

        yup – but in the 1906 we began rewriting the text books till by the 1960’s they were in a shambles – some I had to use were so old that the first name in the assigned book was almost before I was born – and in rural areas where I taught they were so out-dated – and in Maryland the same – mostly I used supplemental material – i.e. from Europe, and pamphlets with the Constitution and other important papers of our government.

        • blogengeezer

          The elected politicians fixed that problem of limited funding in the later 1960’s, with ….’The Great Society’ favoring the taxPayer subsidized hetero-sexual hedonistic feral relationships, predictable of course, with lust fueled random spawn of crime and drugs.

          Every popular TV program, series, film production now has the [latest ‘news’] ‘Vegas’ style shoot-em-up carnage, or it is not popular.

          By agenda, the philosophy attacks through brain reprogramming, then quietly begins on the ‘Traditional’ Families, those with role models, morals and Faith, the only historically sustainable socioeconomic system.

          Today’s ‘Rewriting’ of history, is the latest in state of the art experimentation with globalist totalitarian control….. from cradle to grave.

          One noted anomaly of a Delusional Disorder, it continually envisions a possible utopia. Albeit Totalitarian controlled.

            Great comment – of course where the Founding Father’s disdained Plato – the current crowd since the early 60’s embraced him and his “Republic” – and they also live it and encourage everyone else to do the same – Kennedy and Clinton the epitome with FDR and Ike not far behind – who knows about the last administration – very sick example for everyone included are the 3rd graders not be raised by good parents

          • blogengeezer

            So absolutely true. The Plato ‘Allegory of the cave’ programming is taking place each day in U.S.A. schools from childhood, through middle, and into the halls of higher education.

            When spoon fed ‘adjusted’ data, the end result is predictable. In my career trade it was recognized as GIGO. “Garbage In, Gospel Out”.

            Family member, former NSA [claimed] consultant, university professor retired, NYT, WaPo devout aficionado, firmly believes that Govt should raise Every child.

            Of course those so entrenched, tenured into political positions of control Over the proletariat, are exempt. Their own spawn are then programmed to become the next generation’s ‘Leaders’.

        They’ve already altered the history books, and now they’re working on brainwashing the kids.

    • Papa Bear

      The only time Demorrhoidic Leftopathic Corruptocrats won’t use children as a prop is at a pro-choice rally. Yeah it really is that convoluted

    • Wilma

      No, no, no. Don’t you remember Hillary said we are the deplorables? Lol.

      • Donald Lindsey

        Adolf Hitler did in fact use the school children of all ages to push his party

  • Betty Case

    this is how it started with Hitler they start with children who have not a clue and can’t vote the Washington Post is like New York times a rag with lots of lie

      If I were a subscriber, I will cancel immediately, this is not news, &I agree with your analysis why Clinton lost.

      • Amargomate

        Anything that communists take hold of it…. end up destroyed…
        Just look around, or read about it

        • The same is VERY true about another large, + ever growing group.
          They ruin/destroy anything & EVERYTHING they touch.
          Examples-Detroit, Baltimore, Cleveland, etc. Not to mention all of the opportunities that are HANDED TO THEM!!

    • Amargomate

      Let’s boycott Amazon…. and se what Jeff Bezos have to say about it

    • Reasoned thinker

      Betty Case — Absolutely correct!

  • Mai Tran

    Same static from Communists they used children to watch their own parent & community, they turn children to eye & ear for them, WP need to stop, parent need to involve more , keep thing like that out from their children, sue WP if you can

    • Jim Elliott

      Just stop buying their damn paper.

      WAPO reporters write like third graders.

  • Dale A. Morrison

    It’s sickening to know how the left STILL uses our kids as props to further their agenda…I’d say they should be ashamed of themselves but since the left has NO morals whatsoever they will keep doing this until SOMEONE says BASTA (Spanish for enough)

    • Jackalyn Morrison

      You are absolutely right and it makes me sick to my stomach what these people are doing to our children

  • Zardoz

    I’m sure they will turn out to be fine brown shirts.

  • BOBEBOY

    The Washington post is teaching our youth to Hate and to become Radical and they should be absolutely ashamed

    • jo swede

      I think the Post is just reinforcing the indoctrination they are getting in the pulic school system. It’s not about education anymore.

      • ingerson

        Since 1907 it’s been about forced baby-sitting – getting both parent out of the home working – thus forced penal for the kids – and separation of the families.

    • Dennis A Fox

      whites lost there the last 12 years Rodney king bill Clinton made him a hero just to win black votes look at who got killed in the watts riots five white men shot in the head if a white person tells the truth hes a racist some people hate cops Obama gave them the idea

  • Robert Silkworth

    Just like Adolf Hitler in 1940 brain wash the kids who don’t know !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Gregg Parker

    If they wanted to talk to third graders they should have interviewed their editorial department! Even in this biased attempt they fail to see the children are echoing their teachers and things they picked up that the left have woven into understanding. With a country divided sharply and clearly down the middle, they found only liberal third graders? Where is the reflection of their parents and opposing values? If this was a reflection of reality the Hildabeast would be POTUS instead of the constant book selling nag with 100% of the vote. Thank God children can’t vote. Perhaps we should move the age to 30…

    • marcus J

      If the age for voting where 30 , The Communist Party formerly known as the Demonic Rats would be in serious trouble ,Especially now that so much of their latest Voter Base is being Deported

      • Gregg Parker

        …exactly….

    • margie

      The media is corrupt but Obama is certainly part of the problem but the rest is all of Washington in general they have got to go the only thing left for them to do is to
      take our guns and it is coming, we will end up in another civil war,
      these people have got to get voted out they are all evil. they do not
      want Trump because they are the swamp there is over 300 bills laying in
      the senate just waiting for them to do something they are getting rich
      off the American people the average worker works 2080 hrs a yr, but DC
      they work 918 hrs a yr. that is $200 an hr and they want a raise, so far
      this last 8 months all they have done is try to impeach our duly
      elected President, means they are not doing the job they were elected to
      do and it also means they are not necessary and should resign. the
      following shows what their agenda is and they are almost there, we have
      got to get them out of office
      Beware the Useful Idiots
      submitted by Garret Geer
      Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on his writings and Obama writes about him in his books.
      Saul Alinsky died about 43 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today.
      Died: June 12, 1972, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA

      Education: University of Chicago
      Spouse: Irene Alinsky
      Books: Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals
      Anyone out there think that this stuff isn’t happening today in the U.S.?
      All eight rules are currently in play.
      How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:
      There
      are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able
      to create a social state. The first is the most important.
      1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.
      2)Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people
      are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing
      everything for them to live.
      3) Debt – Increase the debt to an
      unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this
      will produce more poverty.
      4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.
      5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
      6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
      7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the government and schools.
      8)Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This
      will cause more discontent, and it will be easier to take (tax) the
      wealthy with the support of the poor.
      Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States?
      Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin’s original scheme for world conquest
      by communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described his converts as
      “Useful Idiots.”
      The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in
      which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at
      an alarming rate in the U.S.
      “It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.”

      • Gregg Parker

        I agree completely! However, even knowing what they’re doing they still have blind surrogates willing to lie for them…

      • Gregg Parker

        • I heard of most of these, except, the one about demanding that a company hand over 20 billion to a political appointee. Who was the appointee.? Which company was it? Why-what was the muzzies’ reasoning behind this?
          This is not hard to believe, but, I’m interested in the details. Thanks.

          • Gregg Parker

            In 2010 BP was forced to cough up 20B which he had them put in a slush fund managed by a political appointee. The settlement was absolutely illegal and it was coerced. BP was happy to get off the hook and the commies were happy to have money to shuffle out to hundreds of leftist groups in preparation for the final rise to power of the Hildabeast in 2016. There’s lots of details out there if it really peaks your interest including those who got funding from the administration and the Clinton Foundation as well… have fun..

          • Interesting, but, not hard to believe.

    Did the post distribute brown shirts to these indocrinated children? Maybe they can think of some way for them to turn in their parents.

  • Glenn Saulsbury

    Hitler took control of the Media, took away peoples guns, taught kids to hate, took over
    health care. Sounds just like what the far left is trying to do and if true Americans don’t do
    something soon it will be to late.

    • marcus J

      I have said this for years , Comrade Chairman Obama has read and studied Mein Kampf , It is unfortunate that so many young in this country have been brainwashed and programmed to believe the opposite of the truth , At this point I know not what is more evil = Marxist Socialism , National Socialism , Democrat Socialism ??

      • minefinder624

        Actually , I have read Mein Kampf twice. My impression of Hitler’s big beef was that he hated politicians and especially those involved in the Treaty ending WWI which left Germany basically bankrupt and ceded territory to France , Poland etc. Blaming Jews and others seemed secondary to Politicians but hatred for whomever he blamed was mandatory. Obama and his followers followed the same script. Worldwide apology tour blaming USA for pretty much all the ills of the world. At home bringing out the various “White Guilt ” mandates. Divide and conquer -works unless victims remain united. Don’t forget the freebies for the gullible masses.

        • marcus J

          German was my first language , I have a first edition copy of Mein Kampf , If one thing I have learned is that unless You speak and read the language it is difficult to translate , I also have a fairly old copy of the Communist Manifesto ,In Russian of coarse , It is the same with the Koran , If You don`t speak or read Arabic then as an Infidel You are subject to Taqqiya , Which means You are being lied to , The Left is the Left , They will deceive ,Lie ,Distort , Deflect ,Destroy and Deny , Granted Comrade Chairman Obama studying the sacred texts of the Left was and is his duty as a Devout Marxist and Sunni Muslim , But it is a small part of the Agenda and their sick ,Twisted Ideology

    Who owns the Washington Post, are they fricking nuts to interview 3rd graders, and what about the schools, how could they allow this to happen. We should all write to the Washington Post, how deplorable, and Boycott all there advertisers. The Washington Post just sent this out to their employees: The new policy states that employees of The Post must not conduct themselves on social media in a way that “adversely affects The Post’s customers, advertisers, subscribers, vendors, suppliers, or partners.” A breach of the policy could result in disciplinary action “up to and including termination of employment.” This article will make Americans Boycott the advertisers.

    • marcus J

      The Washington Compost should be fourth on the list of Anti American entities to boycott , Starbucks , The Clinton Communist News Network , The National Football League of Liberalism , The Washington Compost

  • William McNamara

    I think the parents of these kids should sue the WaPo, reporter and the school for child abuse.

    • nocbsfan

      To sue , you have to go thru the courts, the courts are dictated to by the news media,seems like an exercise in futility.

    • ABCDE

      If those parents are free roaming Democrats they may be even proud how they raised their children…

    • The parents of these kids are the ones who fed them this poison.

  • Fred_K

    I wonder who told them what to say. I bet their parents let them watch CNN, ABC, NBC, and PBS. The kids are fed this nonsense, and can only regurgitate it when asked.

  • patrick sain

    Theses idiots using third graders should be arrested for child abuse an brain washing put them in prison never let them around children ever again

  • mtmountainman

    Please…..you want to call this news??? These kids barely know how to wipe their butts and blow their noses. They have NO IDEA what is really going on in the world. They have no idea that all the rioting and violence we are seeing can be traced right back to George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Barry Soetoro. Close your doors WaPo, you certainly no longer qualify as a news agency.

    Talk about using Nazi techniques to brain wash innocent children this is it! Before you know it they will have camps to indoctrinate children! Parents need to be aware of what is happening. Yet we can not have prayer in school!

    • blogengeezer

      ‘Parents’, in today’s ‘Great Society’ are presently, primarily of feral relationships. Random spawn of lust, fueled by drugs and crime, are their product. TaxPayer subsidized from cradle to grave, the only life they know is Govt provided.

      The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is a textbook example of the process described by Saul Alinsky. Hillary and Barack’s, among countless other’s mentor.

      The lessons have been religiously taught in the higher learning centers since the Frankfurt School first made it their goal of an imagined world utopia. Totalitarian globalist control.

  • Reggie Smith

    A pitiful example of “free press” using third grade children as a sample of Trump hating. This is not reporting news, but using their influence to rebuke democracy among our children….who have no idea what democracy is. Third graders are easily influenced, and the Washington Post just demonstrated how low they will go to do their Trump Bashing”. Shame lies on their hands for bringing examples like this into the classrooms of our children.

  • marcus J

    Britt Peterson has no shame and absolutely no ethical or moral boundaries , The Political and Institutional Left has always used Children as pawns to further their Agenda , Many classic examples exist , Ho Chi Minn with young Children , Adolf Hitler with young Children , Saddam Hussein is another classic example , The Washington Compost has become nothing more then another publication or Propaganda Outlet for the Communist Party formerly known as The Demonic Rats , Shame on them although they have none

  • Robert

    Children our innocent and should be left to be kids as long as they can. What is wrong with these people.??? They need to be made examples of, send a strong message to to left wing Commies.

    Brainwashing young children at an early age…..isn’t this how ISIS recruits their followers?

  • Jack

    I would vote for Hillary Clinton because Donald Trump doesn’t like black people and Hillary Clinton does
    No actually she doesn’t – and the bad things started happening under Obama especially in 2016 but they weren’t covered by the media.

  • David Phipps

    To me the Washington Post appears to be making a Terrorist Effort to control the minds of Children. Just like Hitler did to make German Children support him before WW-II. Are they So Unamerican they need to use children to get their views out.

  • margie

    This is the lowest thing left has pulled so far. As a teacher, I know that you can influence 3rd graders any way you want. Bet they did it all in a short time before the kids could discuss it with their parents.

  • margie

    News backs Left but this is scary.

    Obama is certainly part of the problem but the rest is all of Washington in
    general they have got to go the only thing left for them to do is to
    take our guns and it is coming, we will end up in another civil war,
    these people have got to get voted out they are all evil. they do not
    want Trump because they are the swamp there is over 300 bills laying in
    the senate just waiting for them to do something they are getting rich
    off the American people the average worker works 2080 hrs a yr, but DC
    they work 918 hrs a yr. that is $200 an hr and they want a raise, so far
    this last 8 months all they have done is try to impeach our duly
    elected President, means they are not doing the job they were elected to
    do and it also means they are not necessary and should resign. the
    following shows what their agenda is and they are almost there, we have
    got to get them out of office
    Beware the Useful Idiots
    submitted by Garret Geer
    Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on his writings and Obama writes about him in his books.
    Saul Alinsky died about 43 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today.
    Died: June 12, 1972, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA

    Education: University of Chicago
    Spouse: Irene Alinsky
    Books: Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals
    Anyone out there think that this stuff isn’t happening today in the U.S.?
    All eight rules are currently in play.
    How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:
    There
    are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able
    to create a social state. The first is the most important.
    1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.
    2)
    Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people
    are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing
    everything for them to live.
    3) Debt – Increase the debt to an
    unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this
    will produce more poverty.
    4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.
    5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
    6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
    7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the government and schools.
    8)
    Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This
    will cause more discontent, and it will be easier to take (tax) the
    wealthy with the support of the poor.
    Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States?
    Alinsky
    merely simplified Vladimir Lenin’s original scheme for world conquest
    by communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described his converts as
    “Useful Idiots.”
    The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in
    which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at
    an alarming rate in the U.S.
    “It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.”

    It was, in all likelihood, also a voter registration drive. Well, looks like the Dems got the 3rd grade vote locked up now.

  • Dan

    I am so old that I can actually remember when the Washington Post was a reputable source of news, not the liberal scat rag it is now. Is there no limit they will go to to advance their ultra liberal agenda. It is pretty damn bad when they start using small children to advance their liberal/socialist agenda !!

    • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

      No gutter is too low for the Washington Enquirer, I mean Post, to crawl into.

  • ingerson

    let’s see 3rd grade – mostly urban areas in DC/MD – 8 years old?? – only going on what their paid liberal teachers and fake history books tell – without any knowledge except that they come to school mostly behave go home – and repeat the same – with some getting a better meal at school than at home – and we wonder how much worse it can get –

    45 Communist Goals by Dr. Cleon Skousen (1958)
    http://rense.com/general32/americ.htm From Greg Swank

    The following is a list of Current Communist Goals as revealed by Dr. Cleon Skousen in The Naked Communist, written in 1958 and read into the Congressional Record in 1963. Of the 45, I can provide specific examples to at least 40 of them. While they may be masqueraded under the guise of something other than communism, the final result is the same – the dissolution of the Constitutional Republic that is the foundation of the United States of America. It’s interesting that the Representative was a member of the Democratic Party, the very party that has been largely enveloped by those with Communist and Socialist beliefs. Let’s see where we are in 2017. As you read, keep in mind that this list was written in 1958.

    [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]
    CURRENT SOCIALIST LIBERAL COMMUNIST GOALS
    Pay particular attention to goals 3-4-11-17-20-21-23-24-25-26-28-29-30-32-33-36-37-38-40-41

  • ADBDAB

    how very dangerous! The parents and news media is now lot letting our children THERE ARE TWO SIDES OF GOVERNMENT – It’s a shame the are only hearing the bad. SO VERY SAD. AMERICA WILL NEVER BECOME THE WONDERFUL COUNTRY WE GREW UP IN. WE NEED THE LORD TO RETURN ..

  • tomsfordcars

    Whoever the teachers and other school administration are involved in this total bull should immediately be terminated from their positions and never be allowed back into the Educational System in the United States. As stated below, this is a Hitler trick most likely instituted by some democrats and along with many other sneaky tricks, especially involving school Children, should be considered a criminal act and the individuals involved should be prosecuted. The Washington Post should be charged with child abuse along with anyone else that had a hand in this communistic and Godless act. Also, where were the Parents during this “exercise”?

  • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

    In some countries use kids to kill and here they are teaching kids to hate.

  • seslaprime

    if they were to teach my kid propaganda, regardless of my political stance, I would pull him from that school immediately. it is not good to teach your kids to spread propaganda. and Politics do not belong in Grade school anyway.

    it is extremely disturbing to hear this garbage teachers are teaching our young people.

  • David Henderson

    Conservatives need to band together and make sure all liberal teachers are removed…or that they teach the truth..most liberals would die if they spoke the truth..

  • John

    What a classless case of manipulation, brainwashing and abuse from blatant propagandists. Of course this is the business model and practice they try to use on adults.
    Since their usual hyperbole hasn’t worked from the “grownups” they have exuded to use kids. A clear sign of desperation!!!!!

  • Horace Milstead

    Just another example of the Washington Post being more dangerous to normal Americans than any Russian intervention into our past election cycle…..

  • McGrubs

    Write your representatives demanding Congress draft new federal laws making it a felony crime to use minor children for political purposes. Frankly it is child abuse to use children to advance a political point since there is no way a young child can understand the politics behind it. And consistent with child abuse laws, the penalties should be severe. It’s already law that children are not allowed to vote so children also shouldn’t be allowed to be used by adults as political pawns. This really shines a light on the kind of people liberal Democrats are. There is nothing these disgusting human beings won’t stoop to to try to get their pathetic points across.

  • Sparkle

    WP IS AWARE THAT 3rd graders will relay what they have learned & heard in
    Their parents discussions. One way to get the response the are after.
    OH DEPLORABLE WP – shame on you.

  • 9400budlang8406

    The Post should be held liable for their open effort to take down America. Their bias is so obvious they can’t be considered as reporters but as promoters of anarchist ideology. Slime balls all.

  • Donovan Blaylock

    Communist Paper. People Using children should be charged as PEDOPHILES. Do you damn job FBI and Jeff Sessions.

    • OldSilk

      Evidently they like Tass and Pravda indoctrination tactics.

  • Jmanjo

    The Washington Post needs to be put out of business for this kind of behavior. These guys are outrageous. I do not understand how any editor can condone this and they need to be held responsible. This is our president and we put up with eight years of a jackass in office supported by liberal lunatics and it is time for all this crap to stop! The parents ought to sue these fools!

  • donl

    Typical Communist behavior; Go for the Innocent, the Youth, those who not been subjected to the REAL world. They know the adults will not listen to their LIES.

    SHOCK SHOCK!!!

  • Bella Gray

    The Communist Anti-American Democrats are using children as political propaganda. They have no pride or self-respect. The are actually abusing those children.

  • Gregory Kogler

    Washroom post as if 3rd graders would actually know anything about anything.
    Washroom post has NO credibility whatsoever. They think because they slimed around n broke the Watergate scandal ,that everything they say is credible,well the Washroom posts is a has been and not even good for the bottom of a. Birdcage to catch birdshyt

  • Casey

    You will find a Trump Democrat. Beyond that, you will find other Democrats that changed party affiliation to vote for President Trump. I am one of them. I am, according to Hillary Clinton, a deplorable who is proud of that label.

    The actions of the Washington Post, taking advantage of third graders, is despicable. Using these kids to chant against President Trump is an example of how hatred is spread in this country.

    In my opinion, much of the racial divide in this nation is a carryover from indoctrination these children are subjected to at an early age by their parents. This indoctrination needs to stop.

    We need to realize that, regardless of color, political affiliation, or religious belief, we are all American. When one suffers, we all suffer. We also need to realize that when we are united no one can defeat us.

    Please, especially today after the tragedy still unfolding in Las Vegas, let us find a way ro set aside our differences and pray for those killed and injured by this act of terror.

    May God Bless Predident Trump, and may God Continue to Bless these United States of America.

  • Stephen Pettine

    “The Post writer, Britt Peterson, chose four elementary schools, and “In the three classes where I asked how many students would have voted for Hillary Clinton, all hands went up.”

    Good job, Mr. Peterson, for encouraging third-graders to respond with their opinions that are obviously both inculcated and premature by any rational gauge. And thanks so much for proving yourself a Blue Ribbon example of deranged, manipulative form of bogus reporting.

  • Gea

    this is child abuse and parents of these children should sue those who had instigated this anti-Trump propaganda

  • Michelle Greer

    Third graders, seven and eight year olds, I’m 49 and have trouble understanding politics and where a political issue actually has roots, how are we supposed to expect third graders to understand this complex landscape, they are simply parroting what they hear in the news and from their parents. I was in third grade when ERA (Equal rights Amendment) was an issue, I only vaguely understood what was going on (ie “equal rights for women” no elaboration or specifics) I just wanted to be able to be an astronaut who was President and a veterinarian and that I could and should be able to be all of those if I wanted. Of course third graders don’t like Trump they’ve been told not to by their teachers and parents and the news why would they like him, nobody does as far as they know so he *must* be a bad person.

  • 4Pip

    These people ought to be arrested for doing this to impressionable kids. It’s horrible when you have to destroy a child to make you look like your opinion is a right one.Those doing this will answer to God and you will get what you deserve. There was more fear in the world with O and would be again with Hillary. This country isn’t just the property of Communists,they will be defeated because there are more Christians than Communists.

  • borecrazy

    By such actions more and more Americans are realizing who the real “deplorables” are in this country!

  • Greg Smith

    That is great, we aren’t supposed to tell the children if they are a boy or girl but listen to their politics.

  • Beeker D.

    Why waste time with the 3rd graders when they(the Soristas&Obamorons) already have so many brainwashed college kids that are big enough to carry Guns, Knives and Clubs right now?
    In other words the Soristas & Obamorons ‘ALREADY’ control the next up and coming generation!
    They Call Themselves The ANTIFA when they are actually The ATYFA!

  • Snaps

    Looks like 3rd graders have all the maturity and intelligence of the WaPo. Maybe both will eventually grow up.

    Speaks volumes about a corrupt party who lost in so many areas. the Dems do not serve everyday Americans; nor are they our friends who care for us! They will lie, cheat, steal, take bribes, allow our enemies to get stronger as we get weaker BY THEIR HAND, and they will destroy people or have those they consider threats to their warped version of the ‘greater good’ put ‘away’, one way or another (Vince Foster, Ron Brown and many others)! They consider God and our Constitution as obstacles to their twisted agenda as both the Diety and the Document both hold them to account for their actions. Republicans are not perfect but with our assistance we can move them to where they are serving U.S. and a greater future, one with Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness as the main points of focus! Now, if we can only get the numbers required to push back all the Illegal and terrorist voters which they are trying to add to their ill-gotten voter contingent.

    The democratic platform has done way to much dammage to our country and those within to ever trust that platform again. The icing on the cake was their selection of a devout Muslim ( OBummer) to serve as our POTUS ( Who swore to be a Christian and US born citizen- nonsense). And they wanted to put the most corrupt and lieing candidate To ever run – Hildabeast in charge. Their is no end to their corruption and destruction to our values/constitution/Allies. They promote: gay rights, abortion ( responsible for 100 million deaths of fetuses), athiesm ( taking God out of America),illegal immigration, Muslim immigration (people who will try to destroy our way of life- sharia law), socialism ( sponsor is Sorros), communism, ignoring our constitution ( all swore to support it before taking public office), world order/takeover, corruption, and cheating at the polls ( over 5 mil illegal votes recorded in 2016- making Trump the Popular vote as well) to get their ways— they are the “SAiTAN” within America and have lost their way. No wonder a record amount of democrats are abandoning this platform by the thousands after showing its ugly head.

  • Mad Scientist

    Circulation will continue to drop and newspaper brass will continue to scratch their heads and wonder why.

  • RacerX

    Third graders ? Some areas should be off limits. I wonder how many of them read the Washington Post rag

  • DJT Supporter

    All public schools, private schools and home schools should not allow any journals and reporters to ask any grade school students a question about any political officers without parents’ consent. School is a place of education for all grade students directly from a teachers, not reporters and not journals. Don’t believe Washington Post what their articles say about. They lied to public. Don’t buy their newspapers and don’t subscribe them. Same thing with New York Times and some other faked presses.

  • Carole

    Brainwashing children. What is next for this hateful bunch of liberals and media?

  • Teresa Barrett

    Appalling! It’s only one of the words I can think of to describe this..this..hatefest put on by WaPo! I’m sure the parents were in on it, because there’s no way the newspaper would risk a lawsuit. These little robots were told exactly what to say so the “newspaper” could print it. Like anyone with half a brain couldn’t see right through this charade. Oh wait, half a brain is about right for the average leftist/liberal. I weep for the future!

  • Guy S

    Washington Post=FAKE NEWS!!!

  • Jean123a

    The Nazis are in full swing, and they are NOT REPUBLICANS!
    These morale destroying methods of the left should be ended right now by publishing the truth about Obama’s real identity. And putting up billboards denouncing him as a foreign national and a puppet of enemies of the United States.
    Obama should have been arrested years ago for posing as a “natural born American”, while never having been an American at all.
    If we had a reliable or honest FBI or Justice Department this would not be happening, we would not be living under a “shadow government” run be the Clinton mafia, that goes under by the name of the Democratic Party. There would be investigations going on right now, but they would be investigating the true criminals —the Obamas (or Sotoeros or whatever their names really are, the Clintons, again, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Tim Kaine, Schiff (whatever his first name is) George Soros, Comey, and the publishers of every newspaper and radio or TV organization that continues to tell lies about the honest people in Washington and across the Country.
    Roy Moore had it right all along! There should be a h-u-u-g-e display of the Ten Commandments in every Courtroom, State House, School, and government building in every state of the Union.
    Lying, deceit, marxist indoctrination of our children, and the acceptance of blatant, sick, sexual behavior and sew re-assignments, are not only perverted, but meant to harm our children and future generations physically and MENTALLY!
    The lies told by black leaders every time a member of the their race forces police officers to use their guns because the criminals insist on pushing too far instead of cooperating when caught committing crimes. Every case has been told as a lie.
    Polital correctness was designed to hide the lies that the LEFT/PROGRESSIVES/ SOCIALISTS/ MARXISTS/ COMMUNISTS/ALINSKYITES/ NAZIS have told for the last two decades and before.
    The aforementioned people and groups have been out to destroy everything that’s RIGHT about the United States. Instead of taking the time to read, and listen to the TRUE Americans, They were taught lies in our schools by socialist indoctrinated teachers, who do not know enough about this Country themselves, to pass their twisted understanding of our History and our purpose as a SOCIETY.
    It has to stop — NOW! Any American who loves this Country and knows the TRUTH should speak it loudly and often. Enough of this garbage with the LEFT being the only side to have a forum in today’s society. The TRUTH must be told — and America must be rescued from the lies told by and probably believed, by minorities.
    The is no privilege in America that is not available to everyone who is brought up to obey the laws and mind their “P’s and Q’s”! (“Ps and Qs” redirects here. For the song, see P’s and Q’s (song).

    Look up mind one’s ps and qs in Wiktionary, the free dictionary:

    {Mind your Ps and Qs is an English expression meaning “mind your manners”, “mind your language”, “be on your best behaviour” or similar.)
    Learn to respect others and they will respect you.

    100% agreed, and thank you

  • Tasha Marie Montelongo

    If the Left is doing this, they need to be stopped. This is dangerous when one party starts indoctrination of our youth. Good GOD, haven’t we learned from History.? Where is the Evangelicals and other conservatives when we need them the most.? It seems to me that the Left would gladly cheer for a civil war. How disgusting is that?

  • Sabiya Hoffman

    Aaahh yes…more evidence of the institutional “programming” being done courtesy of the Leftist groups and the MSM! Unfortunately, (for them) they do not represent the majority of the country residing in “flyover country!”

  • Maxine Albritton

    well, I assume that if you question chidlren of liberals you will get the usual liberal responses parroted back. that is what happened here; I have heard children favoring Trump especially those attending the rallies. If you ask me questions I would give you a conservative response. Ask a liberal and you would get their usual liberal garbage spouted here.

  • yehudabendavid

    Forget about the reporting,look toward what is being taught to kids. Simple indoctrination that has been going in USA schools since 30 years.
