UPDATE: Just to be clear, I posted this because I think it is completely ridiculous. Some people have commented thinking I agree with this, which is quite amusing. Not everyone gets called a radical leftist and a Republican idiot in the same week.
Sadly you read that headline correctly.
The “Wake Up America Movement” is fighting against the passage of the Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act because it is “the first phase of Nazi history repeating itself here in U.S.”
You should take a look at the entire action alert, but here are a few highlights:
According to FOX News, Critics oppose G.I.V.E for cramming ideology down the throats of young “volunteers” …”many of whom could be forced into service since the bill creates a “Congressional Commission on Civic Service.”
This is, after all, the most efficient, expedient way to coerce the rest of the population: “re-educating” America’s youth in “character education and values” courtesy of AmericaCorps. Who better to teach “honesty, caring, respect and responsibility” than a CORPORATION run by the Federal government?!
