Commie Camp

In summer 2012, Rush Limbaugh, the right-wing talk-radio host and Republican Party unofficial head, publicized an expose by the libertarian organization Americans for Limited Government: President Obama’s nominee to head the Bureau of Labor Statistics had sent her kids to a Jewish summer camp “’with Communist roots,” which “indoctrinates” its campers with “extremist” ideology. Comedian and filmmaker Katie Halper went to that very camp, Camp Kinderland, as did her mother and grandmother. Have she and her family been brainwashed? Are the children attending camp today in danger? If so, can they be saved? There’s only one-way to find out–by going back to camp.
