Boy Scouts Are Just Scouts Now, and That’s Making Girl Scouts Mad


As usual, no one gives a damn that boys’ literal identity was appropriated from them. Strike that – expropriated in the name of communism.

From Bloomberg:

Boy Scouts Are Just Scouts Now, and That’s Making Girl Scouts Mad

The 100-year-old organizations are prepared to take their battle over self-identity to court.

One evening in early February, in the back room of a small Lutheran church in Blacksburg, Va., seven girls joined the Boy Scouts. They stood in front of an American flag, wearing the same khaki shirts and bandanna neckties as the 19 boys there with them. Together they recited the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by the traditional Boy Scout oath. As historic moments go, it was a quiet one.

Over the next hour, members of Blacksburg’s Troop 158 discussed a coming campout and held a physical fitness challenge that amounted to running a few laps around the church parking lot. The girls demonstrated the sled they intended to use in a multitroop race, while some boys debated whether an assault rifle would make a good weapon during a zombie apocalypse. (The consensus was yes.) “I like Boy Scouts so far,” said Amalie, who’s 13, when the meeting was over. “Sorry, I mean Scouts. We’re supposed to say the new name now.”

A week earlier, the Boy Scouts of America—the national organization that oversees various outdoors programs for about 2 million children, including Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturing—had changed the name of its original, 109-year-old program to Scouts BSA. That made Amalie one of its first girl scouts. Not to be confused, of course, with the Girl Scouts—though Amalie said she’s one of those, too.

The process by which a male-only centenarian institution transforms itself into an inclusive, co-ed brand would be complicated under any circumstances, but for the Scouts it’s been doubly so. For decades—in fact, as recently as 2015—the organization had argued, in interviews and in court, that scouting was only for boys. And a lot of people associated with the Boy Scouts still agree with that.

“ ‘This is crazy! This is what’s wrong with America! Girls in the Boy Scouts? I mean for crying out loud!’ ” says Michael Surbaugh, the group’s chief scout executive, imitating angry emails and tweets he’s received. Conservative news outlets have run articles with headlines such as “The Boy Scouts Admit Girls, Failure” (Weekly Standard) and “Girls in Boy Scouts Is Bad for Everyone” (Washington Examiner). But strangely, the fieriest reaction has come from the group most famous for supporting young girls: Girl Scouts of the United States of America.

New Boy Scouts of America rule raises questions and mixed reactions


From InklingsNews come many obvious questions never answered – or admitted – by B.S.A. Inc.


State senator, Will Haskell, poses with part of Troop 19, that consists of girls officially joining Scouts of America. The new rule that went into effect Feb. 1, now allows girls between 11 and 17 to join what was formerly known as Boy Scouts of America.

Eliza Barr ’21, Staff Writer

As of Feb. 1, girls can join the troops of formerly named-Boy Scouts of America following a gender inclusive decision made by the organization in October 2017.

Previously, Girl Scouts were widely recognized to do activities such as sell cookies and other crafts whereas boys might typically do camping trips and knot tying. However, girls interested in things generally done by boys are now able to join the renamed “Scouts of America.” A statement issued by Scouts of America says there was a large demand in the years leading up to the change.

Staples high schooler and longtime Boy Scout member, Justin Schmidt ’19 feels that something was odd about the decision. “I believe that letting girls join Boy Scouts is a very sudden shift in culture within the Scouting community,” Schmidt said. “I would have rather seen a shift in the Girl Scout curriculum– seeing that this is the biggest part of the debate–than just integrating two entirely different cultures.”

New York president of The National Organization for Women, Sonia Ossorio, has been demanding this change for years now.

2015: Why Boy Scouts stance on gay leaders leaves it in limbo – CSM


Learn your history if you want to avoid the same failure next time around.

From the Christian Science Monitor:


The Boy Scouts have tried to strike a compromise on gay rights, but the continuing uproar from both sides shows how difficult that is.

The Boy Scouts of America were expected Monday to lift the group’s controversial ban on gay adult leaders, citing a changed legal landscape that no longer allows for such a ban.

At the same time, the group reaffirmed the right of local faith-based groups, many of which sponsor Boy Scout troops, to continue to set their own hiring policies.

It’s a compromise that, in the end, is likely to anger people on both sides of the gay-rights issue and that points to the difficulty for an organization like the Boy Scouts – which is increasingly tied with religious groups – that may try to stake out a middle ground on such a fraught issue.

“You’ve got a highly divided organization,” says Richard Ellis, a political science professor at Willamette University in Salem, Ore., and the author of “Judging the Boy Scouts of America.” “Now it’s not clear that even this solution, which is an attempt to get the [gay rights] issue out of the way, can do it, because nobody is happy with it.”

In some ways, the Boy Scouts are emblematic of the struggle that much of conservative America, and particularly conservative religious organizations, have had as they try to remain relevant, and compliant with the law, in a rapidly shifting legal landscape.

Bye BSA Hello NSA (2013)


This warning to American boy scouts was written in 2013 by a one time Canadian boy scout. The story he relates should be read by every American patriot not for his topical warning about the NSA’s spying — but for his warning how a whole civilization was subverted with ease.

Boy Scouts of America latest victim of the Socialist Takeover of America

Last week I was listening to the Denny Schaffer on WRNO in New Orleans when he was talking about the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) voting to allow “openly gay” boys to be in the Scouting movement and felt compelled to phone in. After the call, I started to formulate this article right away but in the barrage of scandals between the IRS, FBI and NSA that have unfolded since then, I became overloaded with thoughts and imagined how Hercules felt staring down the Lernaean Hydra and how every Constitution supporting patriot or Christian Organization feels, especially those specifically targeted by the alphabet soup agencies, for example Catherine Engelbert and True the Vote. I then realized that Fundamental Change had come to America, but that the formal rollout announcement had to be delayed until Caesar Obumus Disgustus was coroneted for his final term to finally pave the way and ensure victory for the Caesars that will follow him. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told Roland Martin in a February interview, “Obama has put in place the kind of database… will have everything on every individual”

It was then that I realized that the BSA issue was not about letting “Openly Gay” boys in the Scouting movement but to stop the supply of those being “Openly Scouts” from exposing Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves; rare Scouts like Bill Binney, Thomas Drake, Ed Loomis, Kirk Wiebe and now Edward Snowden who put everything they had on the line to expose the NSA.

The true goal is to eliminate the core values of Scouting (and other underpinnings of Western Society), as a preemptive strike to avoid the future exposure and cost of trying to oust them before they do damage exposing the expanding Apparatchik of the Surveillance State and Socialism in general.

Is Traditional Masculinity Harmful? // Frontpage Mag


Hey SCOUTS:BSA read this although you ‘ll never see it coming.

Editor’s note: I knew Frontpage publisher David Horowitz many years ago, as I fought the neo-Bolsheviks at university. His autobiography “Radical Son” — presented to me by the author — was eyeopening. Highly recommended to any who doubt the reality of communist infiltration and subversion.

The latest junk-thought from the American Psychological Association.

Gillette’s We Believe: The Best Men Can Be is essentially a video version of the recent American Psychological Association statement that “traditional masculinity—marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression—is, on the whole, harmful.” And the APA gives the impression that traditional masculinity by men of no color is an especially pressing concern.

This view, the APA explains, is the result of 40 years of research, launched by emeritus psychology professor Ronald F. Levant EdD, co-editor of the APA’s The Psychology of Men and Masculinities, and a former APA president. “Though men benefit from patriarchy,” Levant notes, “they are also impinged upon by patriarchy.”

Dr. Levant, meet Joachim Ronneberg, a Norwegian resistance fighter who died last October at the age of 99. This man was only 21 in 1940, when the forces of National Socialist Germany invaded Norway. Ronnenberg and eight friends could have passively submitted to Nazi rule but they escaped to Scotland, where they could have remained in safety. Instead they opted to return, with good reason.

At the Norsk hydro facility at Rjukan, Telemark, the Nazis were producing deuterium oxide – heavy water – a component of their plan to build a nuclear bomb. Ronnenberg and five other commandos – all men and all of pale complexion – parachuted onto a plateau, and skied across country. Then they accessed a railway line, rode into the plant and planted explosives.

After blowing up the plant, the five fled on skis 200 miles into Sweden, chased by 3,000 Nazi soldiers. Ronnenberg, who never expected to survive the mission, called it “the best skiing weekend I ever had.” He never bragged about his role in blocking Hitler from getting nuclear weapons but during the 1970s he said “Those growing up today need to understand that we must always be ready to fight for peace and freedom.”

Note to BSA: Career Girls are Societal Suicide


There’s a fascinating series at The Atavisionary on the genetic suicide underway thanks to pressuring our brightest girls into professional careers at the expense of motherhood.

So why is B.S.A. Inc hell bent on forcing them on our sons? Could there be an atavistic gene expression responsible for this?

This lengthy article explains the evolutionary dysgenic pressure of career girlism:

The lesson here is clear. The huge direct costs, opportunity costs, and the inefficiencies created from reserving jobs for women that they aren’t biologically suited for aren’t just unaffordable. Diverting women away from motherhood disproportionately and negatively impacts the fertility of the the most intelligent women . . .

The result in the short term is decreasing the average intelligence of the population and greatly exaggerated sexual dimorphism favoring male intelligence in the long run  . . .

If the current environment doesn’t send humanity back to the stone age first, then it will likely create a version of humanity of very smart men and dumb women . . . Lameness of mind will be protective against a loss in fertility for women . . .

So insidious are the effects of deprioritizing motherhood that any culture who implements them is patently suicidal.

There is so much happening and so much baked into the demise of the boy scouts it’s impossible to produce high quality analysis while the job of cataloging the assault for the record remains undone.  But clearly all parties can admit the boy scouting movement was the last place for boys to be masculine in an increasingly pozzed American society.

The Liberal Mainstream Media Is Now Using Communist Tactics to Push Their Propaganda and Lies on the American Public


This is so very true and exactly what B.S.A. Inc. is doing in Scouter and Boys Life magazines — not to mention online discussion forums and listserves.
December 29, 2018

The American Catholic recently published an article titled, “The Purpose of Politically Correct Lies.”The brief article explains how communist societies use propaganda to control the population.

Author Donald McClarey included this quote:
In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.
Theodore Dalrymple (Anthony Daniels)
This quote clearly describes the actions and intent of today’s mainstream liberal media in America.
The goal of the US mainstream media and the tech giants in Silicon Valley is not to inform or report the truth but to deceive and control.
