It's been about a week since her last bit of insanity, so we would expect Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Moron, to be on her soapbox once again.
The Minnesota Independent reports that Bachmann, in a conversation with Minnesota KTLK-AM (radio podcast), warned the American people that President Obama is threatening our way of life by forcing our wonderful youth into "'re-education camps,' where ... [they] will have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then have to go to work in some of these politically correct forums."
I hadn't realized the act Bachmann was ranting about was so far along. It's called The Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, which would broaden the AmeriCorps program. Obama will probably sign it into law this week. Please note that the co-sponsor of this act is none other than Orrin Hatch, not exactly a flaming liberal!
Here's what Bachmann said:
"It's under the guise of -- quote -- volunteerism. But it's not volunteers at all. It's paying people to do work on behalf of the government. ...
"I believe that there is a very strong chance that we will see that young people will be put into mandatory service. And the real concerns [sic] is that there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then they have to go to work in some of these politically correct forums."
Blue Texan at Firedoglake adds this: "Bachmann ominously announces she's 'watching our freedoms slip out the door,' warns that 'President Obama wants to cede American sovereignty to trans-national global authorities,' and once again calls for everyone to be 'armed with knowledge so that they can be dangerous to the views of the Left.'"
Also, from The Minnesota Independent: "A Minnesota Independent investigation reveals today that Minnesotans in Bachmann's district face the worst effects of the foreclosure crisis - but she's doing the least about it. Bachmann calls homeowners 'irresponsible' while advancing legislation to restrict abortion, make the U.S. government more Christian, and fend off mythical assaults on the dollar."

We've said before that Bachmann is certifiably crazy. This is merely another confirmation of that fact.
