VIDEO: Hidden cam catches kids’ reactions as their Halloween candy is redistributed Obama-style

Fox News contributor Steven Crowder decided he would see how well children would take President Barack Obama’s redistribution of wealth idea when it was applied to their Halloween candy.

He went to a trick-or-treat tailgate and had children line up after they had collected their candy and Crowder redistributed it so that every child would have an equal amount.

Sure enough, they weren’t too thrilled.

“Dude that’s not cool,” said one upset child dressed as a baseball player. “It’s not fun to take people’s candy. This is my candy, I worked hard for it.”

Another little girl in a princess costume’s jaw dropped as Crowder dropped a handful of her candy in another child’s bag. She looked up to her parents in disbelief and near-tears as if to demand that they protest this injustice.

The video is an attempt to show the real effects of a popular Obama campaign point which is to, “make the rich pay their fair share,” or, in other words, redistribute the wealth of the rich to the poor, regardless of who earned the money in the first place.

“You just stole my candy,” yelled one kid dressed all in white who looked like he was ready for a fist-fight.

“Is that your costume? You didn’t make that shirt, you didn’t build that,” replied Crowder, referring to Obama’s famous quote where he told business owners that they owed something to the government because they didn’t build their own businesses.

“I’m gonna call the police!,” yelled another child who swarmed Crowder with a group of his friends who appeared to be getting aggressive. Some even tried to swat Crowder in the face.

To say the least, Crowder was far from popular that night, but his prank served its purpose. Redistribution, in the words of one angry trick-or-treater, “is just not fair.”

  1. Joe says:

    An excellent analogy, as those against the rich paying a fair share of taxes are much like children.

  2. Rob Porter says:

    Republicans act just like children

  3. JM says:

    It’s amazing how we were apparently a socialist country in the 1990s (when we had the tax rates Obama is proposing) but are not now. You really have to be an idiot to buy into this BS narrative Fox is peddlig.

  4. Matt says:

    I very much like this analogy. Showing they’re no more mature than children with candy is something everyone needs to know.

  5. FV says:

    Liberals are always more comfortable taking what is not theirs than donating what is. Such a mentality is childish and foolish but continously taught by the left-wing media.

  6. Uknowho says:

    Where is the video that shows candy being taken from kids because the wealthy kids passed a new Halloween rule in Congress that they get of more of the candy other kids worked to get… That is GOP style.

    The GOP tells the kids that just had their candy taken to work harder next time and that they are lazy.

  7. anarchist says:

    FOX NEWS LOGIC: Literal handouts now count as “earned” through “hard work” ? Da fuq.

  8. Linda B says:

    I just saw this on tv.THIS is so great!! Steven You need to to go the college campuses and take good grade points away from student and re-distribute…maybe then they will understand why they should not vote for the big O

  9. Artemis St Pierre says:

    So your telling me I should not teach my kids about sharing? Doesn’t the bible tell us to share and help out those who are less fortunate?

    Fox News will say anything to diminish their opponents arguments and have no problem lying through their teeth. How anyone, conservative or otherwise, can stand watching them is beyond me.

    • San diego says:

      Yes the Bible say for You to help out those less fortunate. The key word is “You” which means You have the right to give if and when you see its necessary to do so NOT the gov. taking it from you and doing with it what they want!!! I want to be able to give when and if I can do so, not have it taken from me!!!!

  10. asdf says:

    So what you want me to not teach my kids the value of sharing now? Doesn’t the bible tell us to help and share with those who are less fortunate? Good values need to be taught to children, and please stop making conservatives look bad by acting like children yourselves.

  11. John says:

    I like the liberals commenting on here that ignore the fact that that analogy is spot on and go directly to name calling. Typical.

  12. Paul says:

    We should all remember that NOTHING belongs to any of us! Not even our next breath, everthing is on loan to us from our Creator Jesus Christ. He has given us all the right instructions, and you know we are failing. Time is running very short. Do what is right while you still can.

  13. Jockey says:

    There is a big difference when the government tells you what your charitable giving will be and to whom it will go. Charity is only charity when it is your choice. Otherwise, it is a tax! Lets not beat around the bush about this one. I am floored every time I see the commercials that say we are going to ask the rich to pay a little more. Again, asking is one thing . . . but last time I checked, taxation is not a request.

  14. Myra says:

    I bet if you took candy from the kids who had the least and gave it to the kids who had the most, and say the ones who have the most should have it because they borrowed the bags from China, they’d be just as upset. That’s Romney’s viewpoint.

  15. PositivelyAbsurd says:

    Honestly, it would be a lot more like asking that kid with wealthy parents who know other wealthy parents in their nice neighborhood and drive little timmy to the houses that give out full-size bars. But hey, he had to walk all the way up those steps to get them…and we’re going to ask him to give up a handful of fun size snickers? Or if we’re really getting into diminishing marginal returns, some crushed up bit-o-honeys. Meanwhile, some kid somewhere is attempting to trick-or-treat in his apartment complex, working as hard as he can for a few handfuls of cheap candy.

    35% to 39% increase– redistribution of wealth? Try reinvestment in a country that permits astronomical returns on large sums of money in what was a largely unregulated market.

  16. Cache Howard says:

    This is a perfect analogy of how Obama’s policies work, and how communism works. The redistribution of wealth is just like Prince John forcing money out of the poor people’s pockets in the ballad of Robin Hood. The only difference between a monarchy and a communist government is that instead of one person taking money out of citizens’ pockets, it is a ruling group doing the hateful deed. That kind of policy is one step too close to how Satan works. It’s one thing for a criminal to steal, but it is completely another thing if a government steals from the governed.
