This SHOCKING summer camp forms kids into far-left ACTIVISTS

Since the 2020 George Floyd riots, America’s streets have been plagued with chaos. It’s become SO bad that now even CHILDREN are villainizing our police officers. But this is what the far-left WANTS. The more chaos, the better. In fact, a new summer camp (in Portland, no surprise) teaches kids how to be activists on the streets. In this clip from his recent Wednesday Night TV special, Glenn shows some of the SHOCKING materials used at this camp — like a coloring book that discusses what to do if tear gassed…

GLENN: America’s war on cops has reached an absurd level when children are cussing out and attacking police officers.
These attacks are the product of the extreme violence ravaging U.S. cities, like this attack on a pedestrian in the Bronx last week. The man was hit by a car and robbed while he laid unconscious in the street.
During a bus ride in Queens last week, a 57-year-old woman was bashed in the head with a blunt object by two girls aged 15 and 16. One of the attackers allegedly yelled at the woman, “I hate white people.”
This chaos is spillover from the George Floyd riots in 2020 that were allowed to run rampant. A report by the Insurance Information Institute calls those riots, quote: “…the costliest civil unrest in U.S. history with insured losses estimated at over $2 BILLION…”
Where would children develop the idea that violence is acceptable and that cops are automatically the bad guys who are out to get them? You don’t get there overnight. You get there through persistent indoctrination. We’re seeing the Marxist playbook in action. The goal is to destabilize society in order to usher in a new system – out of chaos, create a new order.
In the aftermath of the George Floyd riots, you now see things like “Budding Roses,” a two-week indoctrination camp for kids in Portland, Oregon. It features tons of fun activities like
Black Lives Matter coloring books, and seminars about abolishing the police, racism,white supremacy, student activism, gender, climate change, and more!
Campers are also taught things like, “ways to keep yourself safe if you get tear gassed.” They get a helpful little comic book narrated by an Antifa character who says, quote: “It’s been pretty tense around here lately. You might have some questions. I’m your FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD ANTI-FASCIST, and I’m here to clear some of them up.”
The camp is run by a group called Black Rose Anarchist Foundation. Sounds very safe.
That level of propaganda aimed at youth is how American Marxists are waging their ideological war. Marxists discovered that violent revolution, and even the terrorist attacks of the 1960s and seventies, would not be able to overthrow the U.S. government like they were able to do in other nations. They would have to engage in long-term indoctrination and gradual subversion to achieve revolution.
You never know when your indoctrination efforts might pay off.
Take Harmony Goldberg, for example.
In 1996, she founded the School of Unity and Liberation in Oakland, California. Seven years later, a young Alicia Garza began her Marxist training there. Garza went on to co-found Black Lives Matter.
Another one of BLM’s co-founders, Patrice Cullors, is a self-described Marxist who received her training from Eric Mann. He was a leader in the Weather Underground domestic terrorist group.
After an attack on a police station in 1969, he was charged on four counts including conspiracy to commit murder and promotion of anarchy. He was convicted and spent 18 months in prison. But he eventually created the Labor and Community Strategy Center in Los Angeles where Patrice Cullors showed up as a 17-year-old and spent the next eleven years being trained by Mann as a Marxist “organizer.”
He must have been incredibly proud when his protégé helped lead the most damaging riots in U.S. history.
In August, 2020, after BLM got the Los Angeles School Board to cut its $70 million Police Department budget by 35 percent, Eric Mann called it, “a major ideological victory.”
And what has this Marxist-driven effort to defund police departments brought America over the last two years? More violent crime chaos than ever before.
In Portland, all those Antifa protests on behalf of BLM just made their city more dangerous.
Portland had 58% more homicides in 2020 compared to 2019. In 2021, homicides rose another 54% over 2020. Portland also saw 218 non-fatal shootings in 2020 (more than double the previous year). That number rose to 334 last year.
A recent study finds the majority of homicide suspects in Portland have been arrested an average of SIX TIMES before, and shooting suspects an average of EIGHT TIMES before.
Last week, Portland’s Police Chief implored the community to stop the violence toward police officers, saying quote:
“The violence shown last night toward officers and over the weekend is shocking and reprehensible. In the last four days, officers have been shot at, had suspects fight with them, run over by a vehicle and another almost run over.”
Baltimore, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Atlanta, and New York City are all on pace this year to exceed their totals for violent crime in 2021.
Even Denver, of all places, is on pace to see a record-breaking number of murders this year.
In New York City, rapes have increased 11 percent over last year; felony assaults are up 18 percent; and robberies are up 39 percent.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot cut her city’s police budget by $80 million.
Last weekend, Chicago had thirty people shot, and four killed.
The previous weekend it was 65 shootings and fived killed. Chicago is a war zone every single weekend.
Never mind that video – it’s just people assaulting a Chicago cop car with fireworks on July fourth.
Scaling back police departments in the name of social justice is not the only factor creating chaos. There is also an insane epidemic of NOT prosecuting criminals. Every day there are headlines from across the nation about criminals being let off the hook. Last week, a sixteen-year-old boy, who already had a criminal record, was arrested for assaulting a police officer in a New York City subway, watch…
The 16-year-old was released the next day.
