Really? Obama Admin names new youth initiative ‘White House Youth’

On Monday, the Obama Administration launched a new initiative aimed at engaging our nation’s youth. The ‘Youth Social Summit’ will take place Wednesday, December 4 and will offer “young people from around the country an opportunity to discuss the Affordable Care Act and other issues with senior White House officials.” Anyone between the ages of 18 and 35 who follows any of the White House’s social media accounts is eligible to apply for a chance to attend the summit.

While most people wouldn’t object to the idea of a president setting up an event geared at the youth, the Youth Social Summit has come under fire because of an unusual request from the Obama Administration. The White House asked participants to “spread the word” by using the Twitter hashtag #WHYouth. Needless to say, the ‘White House Youth’ moniker prompted intense mockery from many.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“You know what’s not creepy at all. It’s not the least bit creepy – this ‘White House Youth’ program,” Pat joked on radio this morning. “I’m not calling it that, they are. #WHYouth.”

While there is obviously a chance no one in White House realized the similarities between its hashtag and the infamous ‘Hitler Youth’, it’s hard to imagine not a single person voiced concern over the name.

“Is this just an attempt to draw us in, [and] distract us from Healthcare.gov,” Stu asked. “Why use that name… It is very creepy.”

TheBlaze has compiled some of the funniest tweets sent out about the White House Youth tag and below are a few of the highlights:

“The Hitler Youth doesn’t have enough meaning that you wouldn’t change it,” Pat asked. “So they are not using Hitler’s name, so I guess they did…. It’s crazy. Just crazy.”

“That’s the biggest alteration: Let’s not use ‘Hitler,’” Stu joked. “You can have programs reaching out to the youth. Everybody is fine with that, I think. But to call it ‘White House Youth’ is incredibly crazy.”

    obama wants to own us not govern, he wants our kids to be slaves and know only govt it is our job to stop that and teach them that is WRONG this is creepy

    White House Youth – in the past they have been called ‘Hitler Youth.’

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    This is beyond creepy, this is absolutely diabolical. Transform the children and indoctrinate them into a ‘new reality’ and ‘new way of thinking’ and you have won the war.

    Obama has already turned our closest allies against us – even to the point of threatening Israel if they were to attack Iran before that terrorist sponsoring state lobs a nuke on their heads.

    Now hes at it hard and heavy working on turning the hearts of Americas children against tradition the constitution and possibly even their own parents.

    America is headed for war and fast. The enemy though, is not a foreign state, but has suddenly become our own government.

    The left will howl that right wing nutjobs are trivializing the Holocaust and victims of Hitler Youth.

    What the left want to do is burn the parallels to what happened and call dissenting people “crazy” and “insulting”.

    Big things have small beginnings. What “big thing” does the White House desire?

    Why not Hussein’s Youth? Hitler’s Youth worked well in Nazi Germany.

    What similarity? If he wanted the program to be anything like the Hitler Youth groups he’d call it “Obama Youth” and have stuff like songs, uniforms and camping trips. But this is just discussion groups. White House Youth is a fine name. It means ANY president can keep it going.

    Are you serious? O does have songs about himself – or did you miss that in the last election? O also has his own flag – something not allowed by the Constitution, and you missed it. One of the issues of Common Core was uniforms – or, did you miss that too? In two of our local schools there are pictures of Obama where Washington and Jesus once were – or have you not seen that in one of your local schools either? And, I KNOW you missed the part about how he has taken GOD and prayer totally out of schools, but allowed Islamic prayer. I suggest you read, “When A Nation Forgets God: Seven Things We Can Learn from Nazi Germany.” Then come back.

    I just wonder who will stand up for us?..after everything we have done for impoverished countries and countries that have faced natural disasters ..who will stand up with us?

  • Anonymous

    If the president was really against religion the way you guys are all saying he wouldn’t even allow Islamic prayer. So at least one religion is represented. And what is so wrong with dress code uniforms? I can tell you never went to private school if you think that looking clean and tidy is a problem. Young people might have a problem with dress code since they like showing individual style but really wearing uniforms means mentally getting ready to settle down and work as part of a team. Which seems to be what schools are teaching people these days, thank goodness.

  • Anonymous

    Oh he’s not against Islam, just ask other religions!

  • laura.b

    You said, “songs, uniforms and camping trips,” but when people say that there are already songs and uniforms, you defend that there are and should be. So… where’s the line again? And representing only one religion is not religious freedom; that’s religious oppression! and exactly why our ancestors fled to this land…

  • Anonymous

    If that religion hasn’t been represented very well then it should be allowed to be shown. Only speculation but it’s doubtful the normal way of being Muslim has anything to do with radicalism.Fundamental Islam gives the average kind a bad name. Just like fundamental any other kind of religion does. Religion should be absolutely private in my opinion and shouldn’t be anywhere in sight. Doesn’t mean it’s oppression it just means its more of a personal thing. Could be no school teaches Islam either but gives those people who have to follow by praying during school a room to go to. That’s as it should be. Regarding songs to Obama that’s a bit over the top.school uniforms are a different matter entirely.

  • mspatdev

    You are so very right. He was so Christian when he was running for office in 2007 & 2008, but when he ended up in office then he was a radical muslim and the heck with the Christian’s. Since he wants to destroy the USA and the Christians, we all better hold tight to our guns, food and whatever else as this nation will be in another Revolution. I hope they hit him first. He has done so much more damage to the USA in every thing he does. obammycare is a disaster and to top it off, there is one system not even built for insurance payments. The mechanisms for payment of insurance. He has changed the bill ever since the bill passed in 2010. He isn’t even supposed to do this. People do not give any of your information as it won’t do any good. The criminals, thiefs, etc. will have it…………….WHAT A BIG MESS HE HAS TAKEN TO THE USA THAT HASN’T BOTHERED PEOPLE. THEY GO TO WORK OR THE MILITARY AND TAKE OF THE WORLD. WE CAN’T EVEN DO THAT NOW. He is the dictator in the w/h.

    Uniforms, totally take away INDIVIDUALISM
    therefore no one has initiative to create new & different things. You people are so set on everyone & everything being equal. My parents taught me to think for myself and to be myself. More than once I was asked by my Mom or my Daddy ” if Jane/Joe jumped off a bridge are you going to blindly follow her/him? ” . Where are these parents today?
    I believe my sons were raised that way and hopefully encourage their children to be an Individual!
    How shameful for the rest.

  • grassroot

    As Vladimir Lenin said back when he was founding the

    Soviet communist state. ” Socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch,, of the socialist state.” He and the commies knew that when you control people’s access to health care, you control their lives. More of the same.
    Dem. Congressman John Dingell, Mi., when asked why it
    will take until 2014 to fully set up the Obmer health care
    system, Dingell said this, ” It takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to

    put the legislation together to ,,, ” Control the People.”

    Wow, a Freudian slip you think? When these creeps
    speak such dangerous crap, like ” Fundamentally transforming America,” Does no one hear? Or take

    it to heart? A result of defective History teaching in

    our schools for many years.

    Well these youth will learn what the Hitler youth did back in the forties, and that the hard way.

    And your point is what, exactly. OK so he’s not the kind of religion you want him to be. Doesn’t mean he’s radical Islamic. If you need a way to tell the difference between the two(mainstream which stresses big jihadist as opposed to radical literal Islam which is small jihad)may I suggest an American-Muslim television station called “Bridges TV”

    Good question, one should also consider “who is us” – now that it has been made so painfully clear, that the liberal portion of our peers are no longer in the fight with us, that is, to save our nation. Their deeds over the past few decades and most worrisome, how the lib’s of late, have changed their tactics witnessed by how much damage the Obama administration has done alone and in such a short time – Recent years and months has shown that America has turned its back on long time Allie – Britain and our best middle eastern Allie Israel, as we speak, are seeking out new allies, seems they no longer trust the wisdom coming out of Washington – what is more troubling to me though about Israel, they are now seeking very close relations with Germany of all countries, that speaks volumes telling the real story of just how bad things are becoming, when the Jews now trust Germany more than they do America, considering what took place about 70 yrs ago.

    How is it possible that America, who practically came out of the second world war as a savior of sorts, today finds herself, utterly scorned and hated by most nations the world over?

    At this dire crossroads in our history, especially considering the childlike, inexperience exhibited in our current leadership, I would have to “sadly” say, the answer to your question is – No One.

    Then, a further more serious consideration must be made of what is the shape of our current military forces, compared to the past. Presently, Obama is quietly pursuing and systematically gutting our military forces – The Air force has grounded somewhere in the neighborhood of 25,000 fighter jets, rendering 2,500 pilots idle and jobless, who are now taking an early retirement, leaving in their wake an untrained, woefully inexperienced contingent to save us from a growing list of enemies. Navy forces are being called back home, rendering the probability of having a rapid reaction force something of the past. It goes on and on. Now, China too, can be added to the growing list of nations who are thumbing their noses and are confidently pushing us around with their newest demands of an increased and widened no fly zone – as of last week, we must now ask “permission” or risk being blown out of the sky if caught in the same area we routinely patrolled only days ago.

    There can be no other reasonable answer – Obama’s mission to “fundamentally change” this once proud nation is working better than expected.

    About the only way this sudden and shocking “fall from grace” can now be stopped – “It must be of the Spirit if we are to save the flesh” – to quote An American General – Douglas MacArthur, who made that statement shortly after the second world war, at a time when America still had pride in her power.
