Default Antifa Activist Training Summer Camp for grade school kids

Church Hosts Summer Camp to Train Grade School Kids to Be Antifa Activists

BY JEFF REYNOLDS JUNE 11, 2019



I'm so old I can remember when disseminating communist propaganda in public schools was frowned upon.

Last Friday afternoon, I was sitting at my computer when I received an email from Peachjar. This is a service used by several school districts near me in the Portland area that sends home digital fliers to parents in lieu of paper fliers to advertise extracurricular activities sponsored by various groups in the community. My son's middle school uses this service, and I receive a few emails a month from them. I've used the service myself to send advertisements for recruiting events for Scouts, and I've received other fliers such as music lessons, sports teams, and the like.

This one, however, was quite different.



There's so much wrong here it's hard to know where to start.

The first thing that struck me, before anything else, was the mask-clad, fist-raising elementary school kids in the illustration. Teaching incoming 4th-8th-graders how to riot, become members of antifa, and join a communist revolution seems a bit much—even for Portland, Oregon. Notice the star on the mask and the raised fist. Classic imagery from the USSR, China, and other violent Marxist revolutions in the 20th century.


One might immediately think of the Brown Shirts, except that ***** and antifa hate each other. Antifa formed in the 1930s to oppose the rise of the **** party and to try to bring a Marxist revolution to Germany. Rather, the imagery is eerily reminiscent of the Vladimir Lenin All-Union Pioneer Organization, or Pioneer Youth. Lenin established this organization to replace the Boy Scouts, which he outlawed after the Bolshevik revolution. The oath that members took reads:


I, (last name, first name), joining the ranks of the Vladimir Ilyich Lenin All-Union Pioneer Organization, in the presence of my comrades solemnly promise: to passionately love and cherish my Motherland, to live as the great Lenin bade us to, as the Communist Party teaches us to, as require the laws of the Pioneers of the Soviet Union.
You may also note that an organization called Budding Roses runs this junior domestic terrorist training camp summer camp for social justice. The About page says:


Budding Roses is a volunteer-run collective of educators, students, and activists who provide free social justice summer camps and year-round workshops for Portland-area youth in 4th-8th grade.

Camp Philosophy
Our goal is to provide a free, safe and encouraging space for youth to learn, express themselves, and engage critically with the issues they encounter individuals and as a group. We strive to help them cultivate the necessary tools to be active members of our communities through experiences of collective decision-making and democratic education. At camp, youth of all ages play a leadership role alongside adult counselors and make collective decisions about the activities and format of the day. Each day opening and closing assemblies provide a space for youth and counselors to democratically plan activities for the day, resolve conflicts, and build interpersonal leadership skills.


Daily Activities
Include a combination of community-building activities, discussions on social justice topics, interactive workshops, movies, arts, games, and free time. Workshops and discussions are often held in collaboration with local activists and community organizations. In the past two summers, we have worked with the Burgerville Workers Union, Critical Resistance PDX, the Transformative Lenses Collective, and DUG (Deep Underground)!



Building Solidarity


In our work we strive to be a resource for both the campers, their families, and the broader community. With funding from the Black Rose Anarchist Federation, an online fundraising campaign, and in-kind donations of space, supplies, and services we were able to offer two hot meals a day, school supplies, and a back-to-school haircut for youth last summer. In addition to this we hope that with the skills, ideas and support found at Budding Roses, each camper is empowered to make a lasting positive change in their community.




Budding Roses was selected for a 2018 Spirit of Portland Award, as Nonprofit Initiative of the Year.

What's wrong with fighting for social justice, you say? You may have noted that Budding Roses received funding from the Black Rose Anarchist Federation. Notice that they use the same graphic as the summer camp:


Black Rose claims to believe in something called libertarian socialism. They attempt to resolve this oxymoron on their About page:


About Us

Black Rose Anarchist Federation / Federación Anarquista Rosa Negra (BRRN) is a political organization with locals in over a dozen cities sharing a common set of politics and creating a shared strategic vision of how to build “popular power” in workplaces, neighborhoods, schools and all sectors of society towards the goal of libertarian socialism. Our organizing work is centered on building mass movements such as tenant unions, neighborhood assemblies, workplace campaigns, student unions, prisoner organizing, and in defense of communities resisting criminalization and deportations.

If you are interested in learning more about our politics we recommend you start with our core organizational documents: our Mission Statement, Role of the Revolutionary Organization and Points of Unity.
They have podcasts that include Feminists against Capitalism, a Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) podcast, and others.

On a side note, the DSA in Portland has announced that they will challenge Democrat legislators in next year's primary over an unwillingness to go far enough left for their tastes. Mind you, Portland Democrats tilt to the left of Trotsky, so this will shape up as a battle royale to rival the craziest stuff advocated by AOC and others.

In any event, you can't tell me that we're not in a war for the soul of our culture. The Marxist revolutionaries are now reaching into our elementary schools to recruit ever younger comrades for the front lines.
OMG!

What Catholic church would host this nonsense ??
And what summer camp without gov't backing is free for kids ??

What is "democratic education"? Why no mention of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, etc ?
Those are the springboards and foundation for legitimate activisim.

This is a thinly-veiled boot camp for anarchists...
It would be interesting to trace the funding back to its source(s)...

It's a hispanic based church, so you know they are an anti-US/ border "Church". St Pedro Of ******* is their patron saint.....

Wow. The indoctrination keeps starting at a younger and younger age.

They identify as a church so they can claim tax exemption, then go forth with their agenda of taking the US down through their socialist behavior.....

Soros-backed Antifa armies are probably going to make a big comeback with launch and ramp up to 2020 elections, showing up at Republican rallies and RNC convention to disrup proceedings and generally create all kinds of chaos for no good reason.

No doubt --- All caught on MSNBC and CNN by television crews that "just happened to be in the area when discord broke out".

Well, if you think about it, and if you know Portland, the award fits majestically. Budding Roses and their parent group are, indeed, part of the "spirit" of Portland.

I never did miss living in that place.

Joe McCarthy and John Birch were right.

BTW, this camp's purpose is to send kids to the front line in the battle for our nation. How is this different than the muslim fighters hiding behind women and children when they attack us, or when in Nam Charlie sent kids into clubs and restaurants with grenades to kill GIs?

When the kids are injured or killed, these facilitators will scream bloody murder about how evil the right is by killing kids.

These ******* are pure evil.
