Beck: Youth camp attacked in Norway like the Hitler Youth
Posted on 07.25.11
By David Edwards

Conservative radio host Glenn Beck said Monday that a Labour Party youth camp that was attack in Norway Friday sounds a little like the Hitler Youth.

Saturday I was following the news of the shooting in Norway and the explosion in Norway, which happened what on Friday, Beck recalled. When we heard the explosion everybody was willing to say, its Muslim extremists, its Muslim extremists. I dont think we made a comment on it because we didnt know other than a bombing had happened, and as the thing started to unfold and there was a shooting a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler Youth or you know whatever. Who does a camp for kids thats all about politics? Disturbing. But, anyway, so theres this political camp and so crazy man goes and starts shooting kids.

Politicususa noted that Becks 9/12 Project held its own political camp for kids this summer.

4. Beck is a brownshirt.
And he is firing words at a camp that has suffered a tragedy.

6. We have similar camps here.
But they're just called Boys State and Girls State. There are also mock UN conferences and other governmental camps all over the world. They aren't political. They just teach kids to be leaders and how government works. Glenn is an alarmist idiot. And honestly, he needs to shut the hell up.

"Young Republican Camp: Part 1
When I was 16 years old, my parents sent me to Orange County's Young Republican Camp. OCYRC took place during the summer in a remote arroyo in Trabuco Canyon, off El Toro Road about 15 miles east toward the mountains.. The facilities sat nestled amidst live oak groves and rolling hills. Girls and boys bunked in separate dorm rooms; we ate our meals in a formal dining room; we met with Important Republicans in a conference center, screened videos in a media room, and had access to tennis courts. It lasted three nights and four days."

Edited after searching for YR youth camps.

9. "Who does a camp for kids thats all about politics?"
Gee whiz, Glennie...who would do such a thing?

Tea party group offers summer camp

"TAMPA Here's another option now that the kids are out of school: a weeklong seminar about our nation's founding principles, courtesy of the Tampa 912 Project.

The organization, which falls under the tea party umbrella, hopes to introduce kids ages 8 to 12 to principles that include "America is good," "I believe in God," and "I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable."

Organized by conservative writer Jeff Lukens and staffed by volunteers from the 912 Project, Tampa Liberty School will meet every morning July 11-15 in borrowed space at the Paideia Christian school in Temple Terrace.

"We want to impart to our children what our nation is about, and what they may or may not be told," Lukens said..."
