Compelling stuff. A four year old blog post about a twenty year old experience recalled by a lady whose interests include “Lucid Dreams”, “Revenge Plots”, “New Physics” and “The Other Side of Sense and Memory” and tells her audience things like, “I met Barak[sic] Obama in April 2008, and he was surrounded by a totally visible white aura.”
If that’s the best evidence you have of right-wing indoctrination camps across the country, it’s safe to say it’s not an issue.
The original post that I responded to, by Navy Patriot, claimed that there were NO politically based youth camps in the U.S.
Therefore, it was claimed, such a scenario (a left-wing nutjob shooting up a Republican youth camp or a right-wing nutjob shooting up a Democrat youth camp) could never occur in the U.S. Since politically oriented youth camps existed only in Europe, it was claimed, this was a unique European scenario.
I gave examples, one example from the Republican Party and one example from the Democratic Party, to demonstrate that there ARE politically oriented youth camps in the U.S.
The same thing could happen right here in the U.S. at a Republican youth camp or a Democrat youth camp. That type of camp does exist in the U.S.
That's the point.
Besides you, in your post to me, who said anything about "right-wing indoctrination camps" or "left-wing indoctrination camps"?
Do you consider the Young Republicans Club at your local high school as an example of a "right-wing indoctrination camp"?
Do you consider the Young Democrats Club at your local high school as an example of "left-wing indoctrination camp"?
Does everything having to do with politics have to be at one extreme or another with you?
Besides you, in your post to me, who said anything about these camps being "an issue"?
Don't the Young Republicans have a right to have a summer camp?
Don't the Young Democrats have a right to have a summer camp?
Doesn't the Tea Party have a right to have a summer camp?
June 16, 2011: Tea Party Creates Summer Camp for Kids! ..... "Children will win hard, wrapped candies to use as currency for a store, symbolizing the gold standard. On the second day, the 'banker' will issue paper money instead. Over time, students will realize their paper money buys less and less, while the candies retain their value."
I was actually unaware of the Republican camp which WAS political. The late model stuff is unimportant as we cannot yet determine result.
I should have said we don't have corresponding extremist political indoctrination youth camps in America, that was my point, and I didn't get it across.
