Obama’s ‘collective salvation’ 10

A nasty  Communist idea was proposed for America by Barack Obama in that acceptance speech at Denver. 

Investor’s Business Daily makes it clear that his ‘Universal Voluntary Public Service’ program involves Communist-style re-education camps :

Barack Obama was a founding member of the board of Public Allies in 1992, resigning before his wife became executive director of the Chicago chapter of Public Allies in 1993. Obama plans to use the nonprofit group, which he features on his campaign Web site, as the model for a national service corps. He calls his Orwellian program, "Universal Voluntary Public Service."

Big Brother had nothing on the Obamas. They plan to herd American youth into government-funded reeducation camps where they’ll be brainwashed into thinking America is a racist, oppressive place in need of "social change."

The pitch Public Allies makes on its Web site doesn’t seem all that radical. It promises to place young adults (18-30) in paid one-year "community leadership" positions with nonprofit or government agencies. They’ll also be required to attend weekly training workshops and three retreats.

In exchange, they’ll get a monthly stipend of up to $1,800, plus paid health and child care. They also get a post-service education award of $4,725 that can be used to pay off past student loans or fund future education.

But its real mission is to radicalize American youth and use them to bring about "social change" through threats, pressure, tension and confrontation — the tactics used by the father of community organizing, Saul "The Red" Alinsky.

"Our alumni are more than twice as likely as 18-34 year olds to … engage in protest activities," Public Allies boasts in a document found with its tax filings. It has already deployed an army of 2,200 community organizers like Obama to agitate for "justice" and "equality" in his hometown of Chicago and other U.S. cities, including Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York, Phoenix, Pittsburgh and Washington. "I get to practice being an activist," and get paid for it, gushed Cincinnati recruit Amy Vincent.

Public Allies promotes "diversity and inclusion," a program paper says. More than 70% of its recruits are "people of color." When they’re not protesting, they’re staffing AIDS clinics, handing out condoms, bailing criminals out of jail and helping illegal aliens and the homeless obtain food stamps and other welfare.

Public Allies brags that more than 80% of graduates have continued working in nonprofit or government jobs. It’s training the "next generation of nonprofit leaders" — future "social entrepreneurs."

The Obamas discourage work in the private sector. "Don’t go into corporate America," Michelle has exhorted youth. "Work for the community. Be social workers." Shun the "money culture," Barack added. "Individual salvation depends on collective salvation."

"If you commit to serving your community," he pledged in his Denver acceptance speech, "we will make sure you can afford a college education." So, go through government to go to college, and then go back into government.

Many of today’s youth find the pitch attractive. "I may spend the rest of my life trying to create social movement," said Brian Coovert of the Cincinnati chapter. "There is always going to be work to do. Until we have a perfect country, I’ll have a job."

Not all the recruits appreciate the PC indoctrination. "It was too touchy-feely," said Nelly Nieblas, 29, of the 2005 Los Angeles class. "It’s a lot of talk about race, a lot of talk about sexism, a lot of talk about homophobia, talk about -isms and phobias."

One of those -isms is "heterosexism," which a Public Allies training seminar in Chicago describes as a negative byproduct of "capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and male-dominated privilege."

The government now funds about half of Public Allies’ expenses through Clinton’s AmeriCorps. Obama wants to fully fund it and expand it into a national program that some see costing $500 billion. "We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as the military, he said.

The gall of it: The Obamas want to create a boot camp for radicals who hate the military — and stick American taxpayers with the bill.

    The  link below is  a Collective Salvation article before the Wikipedia PC police gutted the Collective Salvation article on Wikipedia.  Decide for yourself which is better and more accurate. I wrote it and placed it on Wikipedia then the attacks began. See the discussion page for example on the Wikipedia version.  FYI They want it deleted.

      Hey John ,     does the term [ EDITORIAL CENSORSHIP ]  come to your mind as it does mine ?    Please politely send them a questionaire and ask them for an intricate and detailed reason why your information  submission is being deleted and then ask for an explanation via  a thorough explanation of what specific policy or policies that your submitted info actually violates.  
                       I’m wondering if they just don’t like what you stated because they may feel offended or do they want some kind of verification or substantiation by inquiring that you name your derived sources and qualifying their accuracies. If everything that you originally  submitted has been proven to be accurate and true , then in my opinion you may simply be a victim of blatant censorship. I don’t know if that’s the case or not but be sure and question the reason thoroughly and don’t accept some BS explanation as an excuse to censor you.  I’m not sure but it’s just my opinionated perception on my behalf.  Please let us know what you were told in the explanation as a result .

      This is very interesting, JRC. 

      I’ve read both your version and the gutted version. Obviously yours is more informative and therefore more valuable. 

      They don’t say why they want to delete it. They don’t say that it will be replaced by a new entry  on the same subject. One cannot but suspect political or religious bias is at work – against the policy of Wikipedia. 

      I might write something about this on our front page. 

      Thank you for drawing our attention to it.

    How about stop spending social security money to fund special interests programs.

  • I have been to Puplic Allies website to see how evil they truly are. Absolutely nothing there would tell a knucklehead they are being snookered into a Communist organ. It reads like a summer camp for do-gooders.

    This is from Public Allies:

    “Our 10 month-long AmeriCorps program combines:

    Full-time paid apprenticeships in nonprofit organizations in their communities where they:

    serve four days per week
    create, improve and expand services that address diverse issues, including youth development, education, public health, economic development and the environment
    earn a monthly stipend of $1,300 to $1,800
    receive healthcare, childcare, student loan deferment and a post-service education award of $4,725

    A rigorous leadership development curriculum
    delivered by community leaders, practitioners and educators, which includes:

    intensive weekly skill training and leadership development seminars
    Critical feedback, reflection, and personal coaching toward individual performance and professional goals
    community building and team projects with a diverse cohort of peers
    presentations of learning at the end of the year to demonstrate how one met the learning outcomes of the program”

    If they want to do this as a private group run with onations, I can’t stop them. But, no tax money should be spent on this group.

    Here’s a pdf of and article in The Chronicle of Philanthropy, that’s spells out plainly what the group wants to do. They even compare their activities with Cindy McCain promoting the digging up and destruction of land mines.


  • QF (on Social Security)

    Hmmm, I’ll have to think about the diffy equations for the other non-steady state scenarios, however, suffice it to say that there are other factors involved with a higher birthrate scenario having to do with rations and using up resources, and then being limited by expansion on the Cuban Island. A higher birthrate might, possibly, cause competition and destroy Communism…. geeze, there are a lot of aspects to this differential equation that the Commies never thought of that are of importance in the gameplan of the “No Free Lunch” McCain campaign…. I think Communism might actually be an ideological spin off of that perpetual motion ecconomics ideal or ponzi scheme of Christianity (mostly stated in the book of Acts).

  • QF (on Social Security)

    In order for Social Security to work, the birth rate has to equal the death rate. If people are living longer and having less births, then the social security tax either needs to be raised on the workers or the retirement age needs to be raised.

    • Mestang2003

      how about stop giving social security to those who have never paid into it.

  • Quantum_Flux

    Social Security is a blunder in Cuba too:


  • QF

    That’s two reasons to hate that Religious Commie Barrack Obamie.
