Seriously Disturbed

Hello everyone! So I went to see a movie last night, and this was one of the trailers and I was seriously disturbed, so I wanted to share the trailer with all of you. I guess I'll let the 10 year olds with camoflage face paint speak for themselves.

Be very afraid.

HOLY SHIT Tony! That is one of the most fucked up things I've ever seen. All those kids in camo faces and what was up with that whole "hand grenade" comment? Yikes! Very scary indeed!

Matt and I went to United Arts and Education yesterday to look for stuff for school and I saw a classroom poster that had "The Christian Pledge" on it that the kids in this trailer are reciting. Scary.

that sent shivers down my spine.

We went to the movies today and I saw this in the theatre! I was appalled! It IS scary! Reminds me of Hitler Youth! Oh my G-d! I can only hope that the pendulum will swing a bit back into the middle at some point soon.

That's wrong on so many levels that I don't even know where to start. . .

I saw this post yesterday and had been distrubed by it all day. Now I'm really scared. I'm currently at my parents' home (small town in Southern Indiana) for their annual Labor Day BBQ. Their house is crawling with the kids of their friends and relatives. I just heard a group of kids pounding on the piano so I went downstairs to investigate as that piano had belonged to my grandmother and is an antique. Much to my horror, 3 kids who I do not know were pounding away and screaming at the top of their lungs. The only thing I could make out was "Jesus, Jesus, we will fight for Jesus." I have now returned upstairs and locked the door. The piano is a lost cause! Please tell my story if I do not make it back to Indy. Yikes!

Keep in mind that the filmmaker can paint any type of picture he/she wants. The comment comparing these kids to Hitler youth is unfair in my opinion.

Everything you're seeing on the video has been around for years. I should know, I lived it. My youth was spent at church, youth group meetings, youth rallies, sunday school class parties and pitch-ins, vacation bible school and church camp. I too, at one time could quote the pledge of allegiance to the christian flag, and the pledge to the bible (which I didn't see in the video clip). But guess what....I turned out to be a pro-choice, anti-death penalty, tree hugging, liberal fag.

Us being "disturbed" and "scared" of what we're seeing is no different than them being disturbed and scared of us. Education and enlightenment is the key.

I don't know, Kevin. I think Annette's Hitler Youth comment is right on point. Those kids were brainwashed with a Superior Christian mentality as well - not to mention all the pledges, war games and discriminatory teachings.

I lived in a very religious household too. My mom still only has religious pictures hanging on her walls and a Bible on every clear surface. I guess that's the benefit to being raised Presbyterian though... While I had "church, youth group meetings, youth rallies, sunday school class parties and pitch-ins, vacation bible school and church camp" we never learned any pledges to the Bible or the Christian flag. We said the Pledge to the American flag. End of story. No need for a pledge to the Bible - we were expected to read it instead.

I think taking it as far as these folks obviously have is more in line with the Hitler youth. After all, there are things like Junion ROTC in this and other countries - but none of them have gone as far as Hitler Youth. And while other Christians bring up their kids in the faith, they don't take it as far as these people.
