On the Front Line of the Culture War: Defending the Boy Scouts of America


Written in the 1990s over two editions, William Donahue presents this early report on the systematic, relentless, and ultimately successful frontal assault on the Boy Scouts of America.

Below is a selection from the forward. on-the-front-line-of-the-culture-war-recent-attacks-on-the-boy-scouts-of-america-2nd4.

Foreword

On May 24, 1993, Roberta Achtenberg was confirmed as U.S. Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.

This was a ballyhooed “historic first” of the Clinton era: Achtertberg is a homosexual activist.

Less than two weeks later, President Clinton scuttled the politically-disastrous nomination of his long-time friend and political ally Lani Guinier for the nation’s top civil rights post.

More startling to the public was that he had nominated her in the first place: Guinier had built her entire reputation on challenging the idea of majority rule, both in elections and in legislatures.
These events are related, and their connection is related to the theme of this booklet.

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.

UK: First they came for the boy scouts . . .


I wish this was a joke but it is not. The UK armed services have taken leave of their senses and deserves the invasion and conquering that waits for it.

The Royal Boy Scouts Association was destroyed ca 1968 and girls were forced on it without consulting the British public. Within a few years, British “scouting” membership plummeted.

 

Of note, the single-sex Girl Guides stabilized and avoided the worst of the post-war Baby Bust years.

But the effect on British manhood was the final straw. Two world wars literally decimated two generations of men, sacrificing the best and brightest before they could produce children. The remaining K-Selected boys of Britain in the post-war years we able to learn masculinity in the boy scouts. But since the Seventies there has been no actual boy scouting in Britain.

What’s a red blooded Englishman to do?  Join the service?

Hell no.

BEND OVER, LIMEY. HERE IT COMES AGAIN.

Not A Parody – British Army Recruitment Posters Reflect How Far the U.K. Has Fallen…

Former British Prime Minister Winston S Churchill famously said: “It is not enough that we do our best; sometimes we must do what is required.”  Perhaps, in an ironic way, that is exactly what the British Army are doing as they reveal an ad campaign to recruit the finest young men and women the U.K. has for military service:

This is not a parody; these recruitment posters are very real. The stereotypical traits of British Millennials are accepted as the standard and re-branded as strengths.

The indulgent trait of self-centeredness becomes “self-belief;” the generational obsession with phones and gadgets becomes “focus”; and those with a propensity for compulsive selfie-taking are now cast with internal “confidence.”

Yes, the British Army have officially accepted that a generation where everyone deserves a trophy is now the first line of national defense; and thus recruitment efforts need to be modified accordingly.

Despite my notation promising this is not a parody, I am quite sure there are reasonably grounded people reviewing this who would nevertheless believe this has to be a joke.

It’s not.

Swear.

This is very, very, disturbingly real. [See Daily Mail]  There’s even a highly produced set of broadcast commercials to support the recruitment campaign.

Great Britain has come a long way from Winston Churchill…

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

— Winston S. Churchill

Unsexing the Boy Scouts: 1977 Report on Sex Bias in the U.S. Code by Ruth Bader Ginsburg


 

Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the Columbia School of Law in the 1970s

The raven himself is hoarse
That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan
Under my battlements. Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe topful
Of direst cruelty! — Macbeth Act 1, scene 5, 38–43

Many current scouters and parents of boy scouts, fathers as well as mothers, genuinely do not understand why many Americans are aghast at the unsexing of American society, particularly of the Boy Scouts of America.

Firstly, B.S.A. Inc imposed females on us with 1972’s “Improved Scouting Program” that nearly killed boy scouting if not for a superficial pull-back in 1979.

(It is important to notice the underlying damage of ISP was not undone with the return of Green Bar Bill’s traditionalist handbook. The revisionist manipulation of the Boy Scout Oath and Law remained and most adult boy scout alumni never experienced actual boy scouting. They know only “improved” boy scouting — a shadow of the real thing!)

But where did the madness begin? WHY?

BSA addresses program changes to The American Legion


The American Legion knows B.S.A. Inc is pozzed. This is B.S.A.’s attempt to justify its betrayal of America to the very men that sacrifice life and limb for her.
Notice B.S.A. flak made a big deal about citizenship. That’s rich.
First of all, U.S. Code requires B.S.A. to promote patriotism, citizenship being a component of patriotism. The boy scout program stopped promoting patriotism with the Improved Scouting Program. A strong case can be made the first large-format “Boy Scout Handbook”s — replacement for the pocket sized, “Handbook for Boys” — seriously deprecated patriotism which formerly comprised as much as a quarter of the handbook’s text.
This training plaque is from the classic era of the boy scouting movement. Notice the qualities and virtues enshrined along the border.

Boy Scouts of America (BSA) announced last fall that it would begin allowing girls into its Cub Scout and Scouting programs. Other BSA programs, such as Venturing, have already been open to girls. And beginning in February 2019, the Boy Scout program name will change to Scouts BSA to become inclusive.

The vision for BSA with this new change is “to provide an opportunity for girls and young women to share in some of the same benefits as boys have done for years in term of leadership development,” said Lee Shaw Jr., director of National Alliances for BSA.

Liberalism Bankrupts the Boy Scouts

George Neumayr

The other day President Trump called Rex Tillerson “dumb as a rock.” That was payback for an interview in which his former Secretary of State called Trump undisciplined and a poor study. Trump had selected Tillerson for the job based in part on the recommendation of Robert Gates, Obama’s Secretary of Defense, according to press reports. Gates and Tillerson knew each other largely from the Boy Scouts, where they both held leadership positions during its transition from a traditional organization to a politically correct one.

As president of the Boy Scouts, Gates had endorsed the adoption of the LGBT agenda, urging the organization to succumb to the demands of its critics. He cast adherence to Christian principles, not their betrayal, as the real threat to the organization’s future.

“The status quo in our movement’s membership standards cannot be sustained,” he said. Don’t resist “the social, political and judicial changes taking place in our country,” he argued. Shamefully, Gates presented his counsel of capitulation under the guise of dutifulness, putting a perverse spin on the Boy Scouts code: “Our oath calls upon us to do our duty to God and country. The country is changing, and we are increasingly at odds with the legal landscape at both the state and federal levels. And, as a movement, we find ourselves with a policy more than a few of our church sponsors reject, thus placing Scouting between a boy and his church.”

Tillerson, who served as president of the Boy Scouts a couple of years before Gates, laid the groundwork for this capitulation. He said that embracing the new PC morality would allow the Boy Scouts to “serve more youth.”

What did it profit the Boy Scouts to gain the PC world and lose its soul? Judges may have to put a figure on it. According to press reports this week, the Boy Scouts organization, reeling from costly homosexual abuse lawsuits, is “considering” bankruptcy. Adding to its woes is that membership has “dwindled.”

5 things to know: Girl Scouts vs. Boy Scouts lawsuit


5 things to know: Girl Scouts vs. Boy Scouts lawsuit

Thousands of younger girls have already joined the cub scouts, and the BSA will also be accepting older girls in 2019.

WASHINGTON — The Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of the United States of America are about to throw down.

Here’s why: The Boy Scouts is going to drop the word ‘boy’ from its name in by February 2019 and is now allowing girls to join.

That fact has the Girl Scouts organization miffed and fighting back with a lawsuit.

5 things to know: Girl Scouts vs. Boy Scouts lawsuit

#1 The Lawsuit

The GSUSA filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America on November 6, 2018.

RELATED: With girls joining the ranks, Boy Scouts plan a name change

#2 The Allegations

The GSUSA allege the BSA is infringing on its trademark, making unfair competition, and causing a lot of confusion.

#3 How did we get here?

The Boy Scouts plans to drop the ‘boy’ from it’s name next year to attract more girls to it’s now “all-inclusive” program.

It will now be called Scouts BSA.

#4 BSA’s advertisements are reportedly confusing some people.

The Girl Scouts said BSA’s new name and the way the group is advertising is a problem.

The GSUSA said the Boy Scouts do not have a monopoly over words like “scout” or “scouting” and that advertisements have sparked confusion.

In the complaint, the Girl Scouts said the alleged trademark infringement leads some people to think the groups merged or that the Girl Scouts does not exist anymore.

#5 The lawsuit seeks an injunction against trademark violations and compensation.

Thousands of younger girls have already joined the cub scouts, and the BSA will also be accepting older girls in 2019.

This case is under litigation, and both sides are expected to meet with a judge in January.
