BSA’s Surbaugh: Cuck or Conspirator?

Is BSA Corp CEO Surbaugh a cuck or a conspirator?

The Jan 2018 edition of Scouting magazine quotes the hapless BSA Corp CEO Mike Surbaugh in an article by head cheerleader Bryan Wendell:

Admitting girls into Scout units, says Surbaugh

. . . is widespread and it’s been going on for a very long time.

Naturally, the Official Boy Scout response to violation of the Oath is to capitulate, to endorse the lawless rule-breaking of “rogue packs” and in the process, tell every boy brave enough to associate with Scouting he is somehow defective, part of the evil curse of America’s scourge of toxic masculinity.

cuck noun: 

1 US informal A weak or servile man (often used as a contemptuous term for a man with moderate or progressive political views). 

2 A man whose wife is sexually unfaithful; a cuckold.

Origin: Early 18th century: abbreviation of cuckold; cuck (sense 1) dates from the early 21st century.

Surbaugh then reassures sexually repressed fathers and their insecure sons they will be tolerated, at least for the present.

If you’ve got a pack that has all boys in it and you want to keep doing this, we celebrate it and we love it. We think it’s fantastic.”

That’s really White of you, Michael. Really. It is.

Words Have Meaning

This would not be possible except BSA Corp helpfully revised the Scout Law as part of  Improved Scouting:

A Scout is Trustworthy.  A Scout’s honor is to be trusted.  If he were to violate his honor by telling a lie or by cheating or by not doing exactly a given task, when trusted on his honor, he may be directed to hand over his Scout Badge.

— “Handbook for Boys” (1911 — 1959) Earnest Seton, editor, also
— “Boy Scout Handbook” (1960 — 1972) William Hillcourt, editor

was changed in 1972 to be more . . . umm . . . flexible, with a built-in “out” — no need to hand over his badge for deliberate moral failure:

TRUSTWORTHY. A Scout tells the truth. He keeps his promises. Honesty is part of his code of conduct. People can depend on him.

— “Boy Scout Handbook” (1972 — 1979) simulacrum edition by Frederick L. Hines

Improved Scouting Redux — Because It Didn’t Work the First Time

The clueless editorial board had the audacity to publish, in an amazing display of ignorance or hubris or worse, a glowing hagiography of Green Bar Bill Hillcourt.

conspirator noun:

a person who takes part in a conspiracy; plotter.
Origin [1375–1425; late Middle English < Anglo-French < Medieval Latin] 

Those of us old enough to remember the disaster that was “Improved Scouting” know it was Hillcourt who single-handedly resuscitated BSA after its nearly successful suicide. Of course, BSA Inc was never the same despite his heroic effort.

Galactica Super Scouts
Galactica’s unisex scout troop was in the best example of Women’s Lib. What PYT can resist a strawberry beret?

“Improved Scouting” effeminized and de-masculinized Boy Scouting. It also marked the formal effort to “broker in” females to Boy Scouting just as the apostate Episcopal church did at approximately the same time.

Oh and in case you are wondering, the Episcopal church is all but dead.  It seems embracing feminism, homosexuality, and the Other while expelling masculinity, Holy Matrimony and their Anglo-Saxon customer base is bad for business. Worse for the church business is rejecting the actual teaching of Jesus Christ.


The future of the BSA Inc is carved in stone.

As it happens, BSA Corp membership peaked in 1972, the year Improved Scouting was introduced, at 6,500,000 boys.

By 1980, it was 4,300,000 boys, a 34% decline in eight years.

Today, BSA Corp counts a measly 2,400,000 kids despite kicking its core White suburban kids in the teeth. Have you read anything published by BSA in the past decade? It’s embarassing, how they chase after Hispanic, African-American, homosexual, and now feminist members that never show up for the date.

9/10 of red blooded, all-American boyhood wants nothing to do with Boy Scouting. It’s is no wonder, really. Scouting stopped being manly decades ago. The current BSA “Scout Handbook” mocks every Boy Scout ever to swear his oath to the Scout Law.

BSA Decline
BSA membership has decayed under the influence of feminism, gender-queer, and unpatriotic leadership desperate for paying customers and social “relevance.”

BSA membership perfectly tracks major American social trends. Notice the inverse correlation of feminism and LGBT acceptance, which is mirrored by really awful BSA Inc policy decisions and gender-neutral, emasculated language in Scout Books. Also, official patriotic recognition diminishes steady during periods of decay as confirmed in most recent Handbook. Of particular interest, both previous efforts to effeminize Scouting, 1972’s “Improved” Scouting Plan and 1998’s “Family Cub Scout Camping” backfired dramatically. Boy Scouting is for Boys. Period.

Cuck or Conspirator?

Is clueless Michael Surbaugh an idiotic cuck who actually believes the Left will love him by destroying the last remaining traditional American institution?

Or is he a willing conspirator, destroying an effective institution that still, despite fifty years of subversive sabotage, manages to transmit the traditional American culture to our sons?

Read his biography. Read his speeches. Watch his videos. If you can stomach it, read what passes for ‘handbooks” and other literature out of Surbaugh’s BSA.

When you’re done, you tell me. Is Surbaugh a cuck? Or is he a conspirator?
