You just can’t make this stuff up. May 14th, 2009, the New York Times runs an article about the training activities of “The Explorers” program, a coeducational affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America. The exercise?
“Training thousands of young people in skills used to confront terrorism, illegal immigration and escalating border violence.”
The target of this particular exercise?
I KID YOU NOT (and I quote): "a disgruntled Iraq war veteran”.
What the fu<k. Seriously.
A United States soldier?
A war veteran?
Has no one over at the Explorers program ever heard about the Hitler Youth?
You don’t give a fifteen year old boy a machine gun and a sense of authority. You give a fifteen year old boy a compass and a sense of DUTY. You don’t give a fifteen year old boy a license to kill.
Hell, you don’t even let a fifteen year old boy PRETEND to have a license to kill.
ONE OF THESE THINGS IS BAD, and it should be pretty obvious to any American which one it is:
The civil servants taking part in this “training” should do a little research on the Night of the Long Knives. Who you gonna call to come kill all the cops and soldiers after you’ve had them commit atrocities against the general public? A fifteen year old boy ?
Well, won’t that be wonderful for the New World Order?
Do you think the fifteen year old boy is going to have any respect for YOUR rights as a citizen?
Do you think the fifteen year old boy is going to have a strong sense of civil duty to his countrymen during a time of discord and civil strife?
Do you think the fifteen year old boy might just love having power and authority, blindly following whatever “The Leader” says, even if that means rounding up you and yours for a little trip to re-education camp?
Training for survival is good. Training for the safe and proper usage of firearms is good. Training in military studies is good.
Training teenagers to kill soldiers is BAD. Always has been, always will be. If your kid is in the Explorers Program, get him (or her) out now.
No excuses – today.
