Obama Youth Brigade: Brown Shirts in the Making


Message to the Federal Government – Don’t Tread on Me (Click Here to Learn More)

I’ve made mention of the fact (see here and here) that the “volunteer” corp and youth brigades are exactly the method Hitler used to raise his Sturmabteilung, or otherwise known as “Brown Shirts”, because of the color of their uniforms. I continue to see massive government intrusion into our lives and more rights being eroded in the name of “saving” us from peril (economy, terrorist, etc.).

Is this the change you really voted for?

President Obama has only been in office for two months.
Now we have
HR 1388. The Bill was sponsored by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) with 37 others. The Bill was introduced to the floor of the House of Representatives where both Republicans and Democrats voted 321-105 in favor. Next it goes to the Senate for a vote and then on to President Obama.

This bill’s title is called “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education” (GIVE). It forms what some are calling “Obama’s Youth Brigade.”

Obama’s plan is require anyone receiving school loans and others to serve at least three months as part of the brigade. His goal is one million youth! This has serious Nazi Germany overtones to it.

The Bill would forbid any student in the brigade to participate in “engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization.” That means no church attendance or witnessing.

Again, is this what America voted for?

From the Bill:

SEC. 1304. PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES AND INELIGIBLE ORGANIZATIONS.

Section 125 (42 U.S.C.
12575) is amended to read as follows:

SEC. 125. PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES AND INELIGIBLE ORGANIZATIONS.

(a) Prohibited Activities- A participant in an approved national service position under this subtitle may not engage in the following activities:

(1) Attempting to influence legislation.

(2) Organizing or engaging in protests, petitions, boycotts, or strikes.

(7) Engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization.

I’m not a Ron Paul fan, by the way, but he did have pretty good coverage of this bill, so I’ve given his link below.

    While the quotations are accurate, the characterizations of them are not.

    First of all, the bill only prevents the facilitation of religious activities, not participation in religious activities. In other words, you’re welcome to go to church (note that the bill says nothing about worshipping itself), you just can’t be running a church.

    So why is this a reasonable restriction?

    Because of the second mischaracterization made by the author of the quoted segment. He would have you believe that these restrictions are imposed on all members of the “brigade”. In fact, the bill clearly states “a participant in an approved national service position“. In other words, an government official in his government position cannot overlap with a church official in a church position. In other words, the Establishment Clause of the Constitution.

    It’s worth noting at this point that the only real connection between the SA and GIVE that the author has made at this point is that both rely on volunteerism. True, but then again, so do most churches, not to mention charities, NGOs, and political organizations. Does that make them “brownshirts”? The answer should be obvious.

    Anonymous,
    Thanks for the clarifications. I’m not sure I agree with you, but I’m also not a legal expert. I can see how this type of legislation can morph into the type of situation we are warning about here.

    Since you can go to any school of your choosing how can you say this. There isn’t a list of schools that you have to attend. If I wanted to attend Notre Dame I can take the money and go. Take the money and go to any religous school you want.
