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.
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.
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.
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?
