Hitler Youth, The FEMA youth CORPS

Vicksburg. The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930's Germany. Regardless of their name, the Dept of Homeland Security has just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth. Kids, aged 18-24 and recruited from the President's AmeriCorp volunteers, they represent the first wave of DHS's youth corps, designed specifically to create a full time, paid, standing army of FEMA Youth across the country.

On September 13, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security graduated its first class of FEMA Corps first-responders. While the idea of having a volunteer force of tens of thousands of volunteers scattered across the country to aid in times of natural disasters sounds great, the details and timing of this new government army is somewhat curious, if not disturbing. http://www.sott.net/article/252594-Americas-brownshirts-Home...

FEMA Corps first-responders

State and municipal 1st responders across the country are getting budget cuts, lay-offs, benefit reductions and pension cuts. They are being phased out of existance and replaced by a FED Corps army of youth.

Replace all 'state' with a centrally controlled 'federal' government. Didn't they do that in Nazi Germany?

"What is the US federal government preparing for? And why does it feel it needs an army of brainwashed youth, millions of guns, thousands of armored fighting vehicles and literally billions of rounds of ammunition, just to provide relief to the American people during a natural disaster? Any historian will tell you it sounds more like the arming of the Hitler Youth than an army of first responders fighting forest fires and hurricanes."

These are adult disaster first responder volunteers

They're not youths nor armed nor politically indoctrinated. This is a ludicrous article.

Show me the FEMA curriculum containing the Obama Loyalty Oath, brainwashing, firearms training, home-raiding training, curfew-enforcement training. It just isn't there.

Martial law is evil and unconstitutional, as would be an unelected "back-up" government. Bizarre theories about adult "youth" shock troops in the disaster relief program detracts attention from the genuine menace.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

Ummm...

I actually participated for two years in AmeriCorps which is similar. I assure you it is nothing like Hitler's youth. While it might not be economically sound, and the program could stand to be cut, to compare it to Hitler's youth brown shirts is dramatic and almost irresponsible. I also did this program in 2008 (when Obama ran the first time) and was with a large group of early twenty somethings, and while there was Obama support, I learned about Ron Paul from that group of young people.

Anything government touches is part of its propaganda program

When you discover what it was then we would like to hear.

I do not think I understand

I do not think I understand what yo mean when you say when I discover what it was like then. I have stated that I am studying the holocaust for my masters. I am by no means an expert yet, but I think I have an idea of what it was like. I also served two years in AmeriCorps, and did not experience an ounce of brainwashing. The program is flawed as far as what it does for our economy, but that is really it. When you say it is part of government propoganda, all I was taught was how to work with families who have recently lost everything to natural disasters and a lot of construction skills because I also worked with Habitat on rebuilding. I fail to see any propoganda there.

The Hitler Youth didn't start as the Hitler Youth

It was orignally named the "Greater German Youth Movement". Only later the Hitler Youth.

Ummm...

You should hear for yourself from some of Hitler's Children.

They too were in at the beginning and it was nothing like what it became. They had no way of knowing the results were pre-planned...

Don't take my word for it. Watch the documentary and see for yourself.

Never has a generation been so completely taken over by a totalitarian state as was the case in Hitler’s Third Reich: at the age of 10 children joined the “Jungvolk” movement, at 14 they joined the Hitler Youth, and at 18 they joined the party, the “Wehrmacht”, the SA, or the SS. This 5-part documentary by Guido Knopp and the ZDF Contemporary History Department is the first comprehensive film portrayal of the young people in the Third Reich.

I understand what happened

I understand what happened with Hitler's Youth. What I am saying is there is no brainwashing in Ameri Corps. That is fear mongering from the right to take a program off the table. The program by all means should be cut for economic reasons, but factions of the program have existed for decades (NCCC anyone? All you historians out there?) and there has been not hostile Nazi take over.

Some were chosen from Americorp.

This FEMA Youth Corps is different.

If there was brainwashing it

If there was brainwashing it would sound like that. There is absolutely no political talk allowed from from the people training you. We were simply trained to respond to natural disasters, and working areas like literacy promotion in youth. I would be afraid if there was brainwashing, but I absolutely assure you that both my terms in AmeriCorps I was anything but brainwashed. I met people of all ages races genders religions and political affiliation. On my down time with the people I served with we often talked politics (not the people who run the program) and out of a 10 person team we had 2 libertarians, and 2 republicans, yes the rest were dems, but they were young and that is how it goes.

I am currently working on my masters in Holocaust Studies (no, that does not make me smarter than you, please do not take it that way, just take it as I am studying history) and I assure you there is no resemblence.

Just curious...

... does your holocaust studies focus only on the Jewish Holocaust or do you also study other holocaust such as the ones that occurred in North America, China, Combodia , Serbia, etc.?

Since it is a masters

Since it is a masters program, you usually focus in on one specific thing and really study that. I am researching the Jewish holocaust in relation to WWII.

I too was in Americorps and I

I too was in Americorps and I largely agree with you. I worked in the AIDS care arena, providing respite care for AIDS patients. We did a lot of good, but we also did get indoctrinated to some extent. We were highly encouraged to vote, and for certain local candidates.

We got trained to respond to

We got trained to respond to things like Hurricanes and tornadoes. Some people chose to work in things like literacy promotion for at risk youth or environmental programs. The issue is you get paid a teeny stipend from the government (yes that is why the program probably could go). It was basically young people trying to serve the country in a way other than armed forces.

Your program was the Americorps.

The FEMA Youth Corps is different.

The government has ordered millions of rounds of ammunition, guns, and armored vehicles for this group. This is not about hurricanes and tornadoes.

Obama has Four Years

to turn America into a Nazi Communist State. The signs are so glaring even since 2008. The executive orders that strip away freedoms follow the Communist Manifesto. We allow it to happen. The American spirit must prevail.
