HERE COME THE BROWNSHIRTS

From Protein Wisdom:

“House adopts plan for ‘volunteer’ corps: Also requires new evaluation of ‘mandatory’ service for all”. From WND, via Weasel Zippers:

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a plan to set up a new “volunteer corps” and consider whether “a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people” should be developed.

The legislation also refers to “uniforms” that would be worn by the “volunteers” and the “need” for a “public service academy, a 4-year institution” to “focus on training”

future “public sector leaders.” The training, apparently, would occur at “campuses.”

It authorizes previous funding, so no big deal, right?

but also includes “new programs and studies” and is expected to be funded with an allocation of $6 billion over the next five years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Many, however, are raising concerns that the program, which is intended to include 250,000 “volunteers,” is the beginning of what President Obama called his “National Civilian Security Force”...

The new bill specifically references the possibilities “if all individuals in the United States were expected to perform national service or were required to perform a certain amount of national service.”


The bill notes this

“would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds.”
Please...PLEASE...read at least a little bit about Germany in the 1930's!!!

More at Six Meat Buffet- (image via that site as well) with some classic video. and here.

Cassy Fiano emphasises that it is MANDATORY volunteering (see Geo. Orwell):

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a plan to set up a new “volunteer corps” and consider whether “a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people” should be developed.

The legislation also refers to “uniforms” that would be worn by the “volunteers” and the “need” for a “public service academy, a 4-year institution” to “focus on training” future “public sector leaders.” The training, apparently, would occur at “campuses.”

...

This is also kind of against the 13th Amendment of the Constitution, too:

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
