Camp Kinderland in Tolland, Massachusetts bills itself as “a multicultural summer camp and community that honors our progressive secular Jewish roots through our commitment to economic, racial, and social justice, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Camp Kinderland got the nickname “Commie Camp” from progressive journalist Katie Halper. She used it facetiously in response to some right-wing commentators, but I was checking up on one of my favorite pro-Antifa professors, Dartmouth lecturer Mark Bray, and he posted some photos of around 50 Antifa flags that the Camp Kinderland kiddos had designed. Look, you have the traditional black and red, a blue Antifa flag, pink and black, there’s something for everyone. And of course, Mark thinks this is “super rad!”
Dr. Bray, in case you forgot, is the guy who wrote the Antifa handbook featured in one of those pictures and then donated half of the proceeds from that book to Antifa. Bray is also working on the intro for an Antifa comic book, which my doppelganger covered a few months back:
So let’s get a couple things out of the way: raising your kids yourself is always going to be preferable to sending them to a camp. If you absolutely must send your kids to camp or its just for a week or two for fun, I don’t know why anyone in their right mind would send their kids to a political summer camp. But if you absolutely must send your kids to a political summer camp, you might want to check out Camp Constitution.
The director of this camp emailed me, saying that it’s nearby in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, but ensuring me that it’s the opposite of “Commie Camp.” It’s on August 5th through 11th and apparently discusses America’s “Judeo-Christian moral heritage” and “free enterprise.” It uses the unfortunate term “freedom fight,” which is used in some rather unsavory contexts internationally, but it honestly does sound like a good, wholesome, not communist experience.
Antifa Goes After Moms Who Exposed Drag Queen Storytime
A drag queen recently stripped during an event for children at Renton Public Library in Washington state, reported The College Fix.
Now this was apparently at a “Teen Pride” event, but the library listed it as suitable for teens and tweens, which are around age 9 through 12 and one of the moms who attended it undercover to film said that she SAW kids as young as ten.
Now, this undercover operation by the moms didn’t go so well, as event organizers and COPS removed moms who didn’t bring children.
Emerald City Antifa posted to Twitter, saying “today we had two queerphobic adults filming kids going in and out of the bathrooms at Teen Pride event at Renton Public library….We’ll post link in thread, please help us identify these pervs.”
Now, obviously if the moms were actually filming that, in addition to the drag show, that’s pretty sketch. But other users on Twitter began talking about one of the mom’s address and date of birth and posted photos of one of their cars and license plates.
So you know, you’ve got to wonder. You have Antifa and the far left pushing drag queens, but then you also have big corporations advertising with them and, of course, promoting physical violence. If you’re on the side of big corporations, how much of a radical are you really?
Trump Supporter Resigns From ‘Commie Camp’
Meet Gabriella Mamet, who had the unique displeasure of serving as a camp counselor for the social justice-themed Camp Kinderland — whose campers made Antifa flags for one activity — while being a Trump supporter. Now you’re probably wondering: why would someone who supports Trump sign up for a job focused on communist indoctrination? Well, Gabriella told me that she didn’t get the impression the place was a leftist hivemind during the phone interview or from browsing the site, but she sure was in for a surprise, particularly from the kids, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
She said they were “attacking me for my political views….They were saying that they felt threatened by me as a counselor and not knowing my views on gun control…they said to my face all Trump supporters are bad people. They’re racist, homophobic and we don’t want them at our camp.”
Camp Kinderland apparently assigned Gabriella to a bunk full of 14 and 15-year-old kids. You know how much of a pain in the ass that age group usually is, but just imagine if their brains are addled with both immaturity AND Marxism.
Campers “were justifying the police officers being shot [in Ferguson],” said Gabriella, whose father serves in the force. “They were basically saying that it was okay for the police officers to be shot because people were so angry.”
After a month of putting up with this crap, the 20-year-old counselor was scheduled to switch bunks last Sunday, but said she resigned after her boss simply told the kids she was needed elsewhere and didn’t hold them accountable for their actions. She’s now worried that the camp won’t pay her if this story gets out.
‘Unmasking Antifa’ Bill Has Got Lefties Triggered
New York Republican Rep. Dan Donovan introduced the Unmasking Antifa Act to the House, reported Campus Reform. The bill says “Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.”
So basically, this would raise the number of years you could face in prison by five years if you threaten or assault someone while wearing a mask. And it seems pretty reasonable to discourage people from covering their faces in public. I mean, people don’t exactly do that if they plan on following the law, do they? No, people are more likely to commit crimes while covered up because there’s less chance of being identified and getting caught. So to counteract that, we need to make the penalty for getting caught higher. But of course, this means resisting the whining and squealing of left-wing activists.
At the end of the day, the media aren’t very attentive when it comes to left-wing political violence and while sites like 4Chan can hone in on some of the more egregious cases like bike lock professor Eric Clanton, they can’t catch ‘em all. But there will be fewer Antifa TO catch if disincentives like the Unmasking Antifa Act are ratified, so call your representative and ask them to support the bill today.
