The Obama liberals hate this kind of stuff. Rep. Michele Bachmann, interviewed by Sue Jeffers on KTLK FM in Minnesota recently, warned about the “Kennedy Serve America Act” and Obama’s plan to indoctrinate America’s children.
“Rep. Michele Bachmann, who has levied the most bizarre and outlandish critiques against President Obama since before he came into office, did not disappoint this weekend,” writes Sam Stein for the Huffington Post.
Appearing on Minnesota radio station KTLK-AM, (h/t Minnesota Independent) the Republican congresswoman expressed her concern that White House was trying to put in place “re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward.” Furthering the Obama-as-autocrat theme, Bachmann said the youngsters would “then they have to go to work in some of these politically correct forums.”
Bachmann’s crazy, Sam seems to think, because the “bipartisan Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act” is “widely popular and bipartisan,” that is to say a preponderant number of Congress critters agreed to press gang the youth of America into government mandated indentured servitude.
“The Obama White House did not immediately return request for reaction. The Kennedy Serve America Act passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 275 to 149 and the Senate, by a vote of 79 to 19.”
Bachmann is right about Obama, but beware: she is a Republican neocon who received support from the likes of Bush, Karl Rove, and the man who does work in the shadows, Dick Cheney.
