The Left never liked the Boy Scouts
President Trump went where Barack Obama dared not go: Glen Jean, West Virginia. Obama shirked his duties and failed to attend the quadrennial jamborees in 2009 and 2013.
But Trump went, and was honored to do so.
Trump pointed out that 10 of his Cabinet members are former Boy Scouts. A few are Eagle Scouts.
They are men of honor and integrity — squares in a world that needs stand up men. You start by building square boys.
The press seemed alarmed that Trump
From CNN: “Trump to Boy Scouts: ‘We could use some more loyalty’ “
From the Hill: “Boos for Obama as Trump speaks at Boy Scout jamboree”
From Time: “President Trump Brags About His Election Victory During Boy Scout Jamboree Speech”
From the Hill: “Dem senator: Trump’s ‘icky’ Boy Scout speech left ‘my stomach in knots'”
They crack me up.
Parents have expressed anger after President Donald Trump delivered a highly politicized speech to tens of thousands of Boy Scouts.
Mr Trump started by saying: “Who the hell wants to speak about politics?”
But his speech to the Jamboree in West Virginia railed against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the “cesspool” of politics, drawing whoops and cheers.
One parent wrote: “Done with scouts after you felt the need to have my kid listen to a liar stroke his ego.”
Did the BBC ask any parents in 2009 or 2013 how they felt about Barack Obama stiffing the Boy Scouts and ignoring their jamborees entirely?
This is the same pack of that hounded the Boy Scouts for decades as “homophobic” because they tried to protect their wards from openly gay Scout leaders.
But forcing the Boy Scouts to have a few gay leaders was just an excuse to go after a group that develops some of the best leaders in the world.
There is a reason the jamboree is in West Virginia. The Scouts used to hold their jamborees on public land, but the Left — the cowardly Marxists that they are — protested and politicized the process of site selection.
Philadelphia tried to evict the Boy Scouts from a building the Boy Scouts gave the city.
The ACLU sued to stop government agencies from sponsoring the Boy Scouts.
There is a reason for this hatred of the Boy Scouts by the Left.
“Boy Scout values are American values,” Trump said.
That is why the Left hates him.
That is why the Left hates the Boy Scouts.
And that is why the Left and the rest of the Democratic Party can write off the Boy Scouts for the rest of their lives.
By the way, West Virginia hosts the World Jamboree in two years. It will be awesome.
