An Infowars reader has sent us an account of military and police indoctrination of Boy Scouts at the Boy Scouts Of America Great Lakes Centennial Jamboree, held on September 25, 26, and 27 at Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
“I thought it would be a great adventure with thousands of scouts from all over the Midwest,” an assistant Scout Master writes in an email. “The official count was 10,144 people in attendance (Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Adult Leaders, Parents, and Staff).”
Instead of an old-fashioned Boy Scout event of camping and outdoor activities, the attendees were subjected to unrelenting military and police propaganda.
The Scout Master immediately noticed the presence of the Wisconsin Army National Guard and police at the event. The next day, he observed Humvees, troop vehicles, cargo vehicles, a patriot missile battery truck, and other military equipment at the event.
[efoods]The police demonstrated “chase and takedown demonstrations” and showed off a new SWAT vehicle. “There were several military displays,” he writes. “The National Guard had a Baghdad combat simulator setup that people 16 and older could try. Three people at a time were allowed in, one person got to man a machine gun on a vehicle, another got an M16/AR15 [while] the other person got a 9mm pistol. You were simulating going through the streets of Baghdad trying to kill terrorists, militants etc. There were also civilians you were supposed to either avoid shooting or determine if they were a terrorist. There was an Army Blackhawk helicopter that showed up and circled the area and then landed for people to go look at and get into and talk to the Army pilots.” (See photos below.)
The Lt. General of the Wisconsin National Guard gave a speech and compared the Boy Scouts to the U.S. Army. “They showed video on two big screens that were on either side of the stage that showed old and new video of scouts in different activities, marching, and mixed in with those scenes were video scenes of the Army and scenes from World War I and the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Scout Master, a listener of the Alex Jones Show, said the display disturbed him deeply. “I have to tell you I was scared to death of what is getting ready to happen to scouting. I told my son who was with me at the show to listen for certain things and don’t buy into what was being said. I felt like I was in 1940’s Nazi Germany and was being prepared for indoctrination.”
When he expressed concern to other adults at the event, he was dismissed as a conspiracy theorist.
“I even saw Girl Scouts at this Jamboree (not to as many as the Boy Scouts mind you but there were some). I think scouting is a very important thing in the lives of boys and girls. I think we can still save the Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts if ALL scout leaders and parents of scouts stand up and in one voice say ‘NO!’ we will not have our boys and girls turned into the Hitler Youth of America. We need to write, call the local Councils, and the National offices and tell them to STOP this ‘indoctrination’ that is happening to our boys and girls. It’s not to late!” he concludes.
On May 14, 2009, Infowars reported on a program initiated by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI to train Boy Scouts and “thousands of young people in skills used to confront terrorism, illegal immigration and escalating border violence — an intense ratcheting up of one of the group’s longtime missions to prepare youths for more traditional jobs as police officers and firefighters,” according to the New York Times.
“The Boy Scouts of America has announced a partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Ready Kids, a family-friendly program designed to increase the level of citizen preparedness nationwide by motivating and helping parents and teachers to educate children about the importance of being prepared for emergencies,” a press release issued by the Boy Scouts announced in February. “Scouting embodies the very essence of being prepared and has specific training and merit badges designed to encourage proper awareness and planning in our Scouts. To partner on a program such as this allows us to reinforce the importance of preparation to families throughout the nation,” said Roy Williams, Chief Scout Executive.
“The Department of Homeland Security is training teenage scouts how to conduct armed raids on terrorists and drug dealers,” Steve Watson wrote on May 14. “Given recent concerns over the DHS definition of ‘right wing extremists’ and the agency’s penchant to affiliate veterans, gun owners, Ron Paul supporters and even those who question the mainstream media with terrorists, one wonders exactly who the boy scouts are being trained to target.”
Earlier this month the AFP reported on an effort by the DHS to recruit Girl Scouts. “The United States wants to enlist its 3.4 million Girl Scouts in the effort to combat hurricanes, pandemics, terror attacks and other disasters. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) launched a campaign Tuesday to entice the blue, brown and green-clad multitudes to be even more prepared, with the promise of a new patch if they pitch in.”
“The news that Girl Scouts are to be recruited for disaster preparedness by the federal government follows similar programs being run by the DHS that train Boy Scouts how to conduct armed raids on discontented American citizens, described as ‘terrorists’ and ‘drug dealers’ by Homeland Security,” Paul Joseph Watson noted on September 10.
The Boy Scout event in Wisconsin was exploited by the government to further the indoctrination agenda, preparing America’s youth for a future of foreign wars, occupations, and mass murder campaigns and the police state lockdown at home.
