I didn’t think it was physically possible, but over the weekend, the performance artist known as Michele Bachmann out-crazied herself.
I believe that there is a very strong chance that we will see that young people will be put into mandatory service. And the real concerns is that there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then they have to go to work in some of these politically correct forums.
Bachmann is referring to the Serve America Act, which expands the AmeriCorps program and is co-sponsored by the closet Stalinist, Orrin Hatch.
You really have to listen to the whole segment. Bachmann ominously announces she’s "watching our freedoms slip out the door," warns that "President Obama wants to cede American sovereignty to trans-national global authorities," and once again calls for everyone to be "armed with knowledge so that they can be dangerous to the views of the Left."
But the takeaway is that we have a sitting Congresswoman telling people that the government is going to brainwash their kids in modern-day gulags.
There’s going to be a lot more Pittsburghs if this kind of talk continues, I’m afraid.
