On his radio show today Glenn Beck compared a Labour Party youth camp where a gunman killed scores of young people to the Hitler Youth, but failed to mention that his own 9/12 Project ran a similar summer camp this year.
Here is the audio from Media Matters:
Beck said, “Saturday I was following the news of the shooting in Norway and the explosion in Norway, which happened what on Friday…When we heard the explosion everybody was willing to say, it’s Muslim extremists, it’s Muslim extremists. I don’t think we made a comment on it because we didn’t know other than a bombing had happened, and as the thing started to unfold and there was a shooting a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler Youth or you know whatever. Who does a camp for kids that’s all about politics? Disturbing. But, anyway, so there’s this political camp and so crazy man goes and starts shooting kids.”
Who would do a political camp for kids? Perhaps, Glenn Beck’s own 9/12 Project?
This month the Tampa 9/12 project held a summer camp for kids called the Tampa Liberty School which was described on their own website as, “This part time summer camp will meet from 9am to noon on July 11-15 at the Paideia School in Temple Terrace. Kids aged 8-12 years old will have fun while learning the principles of liberty, free markets, and limited government. They will also learn the values of personal responsibility, faith, courage, hard work, reverence and thrift.”
A summer camp that teaches the principle of limited government sounds a lot like the political indoctrination of children to me.
Hitler Youth indeed, Glenn.
