Back in April, congresswoman Michele Bachmann said that President Obama wanted to send American children to mandatory "reeducation camps." That was her completely reasonable response to increased funding for AmeriCorps. Guess what her son just joined!
Here's Michele's direct quote from April. Once again, she is talking about the expansion of AmeriCorps.
I believe when it's all said and done, this service that — I believe that there's a very strong chance that we will see that young people will be put into mandatory service. And the real concern is that there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then they have to go and work in some of these politically correct forums. It's very concerning. It appears that there's a philosophical agenda behind all of this, and especially if young people are mandated to go into this. As a parent, I would have a very, very difficult time seeing my children do this. Again, a huge power-grab, at a cost of billions of dollars.
But the Star Tribune has confirmed that Bachmann's son Harrison has joined Teach For America, which is, of course, a part of AmeriCorps.
We hope he enjoys his time in President NoBama's Forced Labor Gulag!
