Brown Shirts 2.0: New Obama Youth Army Militaristic Recruitment Propaganda Ad! (Video)

Barack Obama was caught by an AP photographer wearing a hat adorning the logo of City Year while golfing on vacation in Hawaii last summer.

This is an unedited video from a group called City Year.

Check out the "Sieg Heil" Hitler salute at 0:40 mark! Good grief!

While there is no direct connection between President Obama and the group, does anyone else find it odd that Obama buddy and current US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Former CEO of Chicago Public Schools gives this endorsement of City Year:

"You have to have folks with our students every single day, making a difference in their lives. That's what City Year does, with its diversity, with its long term commitment, with its passionate young people. There's no one else I know of in the country who is having that kind of impact."

Then again, maybe there is a connection between this disturbing militant youth ad and President Obama.
March 4, 2009 - Millions of people watched last night as President Barack Obama called on all Americans to renew their commitment to service to help address the critical problems facing our country. City Year is honored that alumna Roxanna Garcia Marcus sat with First Lady Michelle Obama for the address, underscoring President Obama's deep commitment to national service and AmeriCorps.

"To encourage a renewed spirit of national service for this and future generations," President Obama called on Congress to send him the Serve America Act, "the bipartisan legislation that bears the name of Senator Orrin Hatch as well as an American who has never stopped asking what he can do for his country - Senator Edward Kennedy."

City Year's vision is that one day the most commonly asked question of a young adult will be "where are you going to do your year of service?" The Serve America Act brings us closer to that day by setting forth a bold plan for the transformative role service can play in solving critical problems and improving lives and communities across our country.

Or this...

Obama reportedly intends to establish a White House office to coordinate not only service programs, but “social innovation” and technology — which presumably involves a 21st century take on volunteerism.

“Whenever there’s been an expansion of service opportunities, it’s been because of presidential leadership,” says Alan Khazei, founder of City Year and now head of Service Nation.

“We have every indication that Obama is going to give this the leadership it needs,” he said. Indeed, it’s a movement whose time has come.
