Maryland County Public Library System to provide Free Social Justice Boot Camp Program

The Prince George County Memorial Library System (a county government established, sponsored and controlled entity) is initiating a Free Social Justice Boot Camp program, open to high school students (9th grade and higher) and recent graduates. The goals are to teach (political) organizing and (political) activism in the community. The program will teach methods to engage (political) activism, make (political) connections in the community, develop (political) passions into (political) projects designed to ignite (political) change. The program is meant to be an ongoing endeavor, with attendees becoming the future mentors of the program. It is also more than educational in nature, with an additional goal of monitoring the progress of current Social Justice (political) activism projects and to propose new Social Justice (political) activism projects.

** where (political) appears is to remind and inform that this program has a partisan political objective.

Maryland county hosting free ‘social justice camp’ for high schoolers to ‘ignite change’

Only the progressive left uses the undefined mantra of “Social Justice.” This program appears to be nothing more than co-opting public facilities and programs for spotting, assessing and recruiting progressive political foot soldiers. Essentially College Commie Club night coming to a public library near you.

Whats wrong with getting young adults involved in politics and their community?

Of course a prog sees no problem with public controlled entities teaching political activism. I guess you missed the little part about monitoring the progress of already on going political activism projects and coming up with new ones to initiate. This isn’t a neutral program, it is a Social Justice affiliated program. It labels itself and identifies its political affiliation.

Only when it’s leftist claptrap being pushed. :wink:

If it’s absolutely neutral, nothing but if it leans one way or the other, it should not be sponsored with tax payer dollars.

What’s wrong with educating about and promoting social justice?

They will get it when red counties start running anti-abortion activist camps.

As I said, this is nothing more than a spot, assess and recruit program for progressive political foot soldiers subsidized with public assets.

If by “get it” you mean a case of the squeals topped with some hyperventilating, I say we throw in a, “It’s OK to be White” class while we’re at it.

That was my favorite leftist outburst of all time. :rofl:

The term ‘social justice’ is just like the slogan ‘hope and change.’ It is an undefined label meant to obscure actual objectives by creating a warm and fuzzy reaction in the listener.

So you don’t like communities pursuing goals they define as being associated with “social justice”?

Ok. Cool. This community believes differently.

A “community” is the whole and not a singled out portion. Now is this program designed to benefit “the whole community” equally or a portion?

New flash, self appointed members of the community don’t get to speak for the whole community, or use public resources for partisan goals.

Nice use of a rhetorical question.

Using tax dollars to propagandize political activism for one side, against the political positions of all taxpayers?
Or do you think they will be inclusive of Young Republican organizations? What about helping people organize who are opposed to activist school boards?

Will “social justice:” be inclusive of those who see MAGA as social justice?

Another excellent rhetorical question.

Libs repel adults with their childish ways.

Obviously, radicalizing little kids is their next best bet to try and stay relevant. :wink:

That reminds me… ‘social justice’ needs to go on the list.

No. Stick to checking out books.

The social justice movement is the opposite coin of the White Nationalist party. Would anyone want that in a public library?
