FAIL: BSA loses 163,000 members adding girls


A number cruncher at scouter.com ran the numbers.

BSA Inc’s 2018 membership dropped 6% from 2017. They predicted a 2% gain.

SIX PERCENT. THAT IS DRAMATIC. CEO SHOUILD BE TERMINATED, HIS PAY CLAWED BACK. The board of directors should be charged with malfeasance.

Unsexed boy scouting is a failure. It’s not like anyone could see it coming. Who knew?

“SCOUT BOYS OUT” still on April 2019


It’s past Easter and the BSA Inc still works to “SCOUT BOYS OUT.”

Listen up, fathers of America: BSA Inc is not your Boy Scouts. They hate you. They hate B-P. They hate boys. They hate men.

They would like your cash, if only to pay CEO Surbaugh’s $2,000,000 annual compensation. Bear in mind wages and salary are only a portion of Surbaugh’s total compensation package!

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 Sex Abuse Allegations Surface Against Boy Scouts Of America

April 23, 2019 – 10:20 am

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Stunning new allegations of child sex abuse have surfaced against the Boy Scouts of America.

Attorneys for alleged victims say there is a pattern of abuse involving 7,000 Boy Scout leaders nationwide dating back to the 1940s. The leaders were named in the Boy Scouts of America “Perversion Files,” lawyers said. They call it a system of denial and cover ups.

The Boy Scouts of America issued a statement saying that they “care deeply about all victims of child sex abuse and sincerely apologize to anyone who was harmed during their time scouting.”

The organization says they are “outraged” that abusers have taken advantage of scouting programs to abuse children.

Lawyers planning to file multiple lawsuits on behalf of the alleged victims will hold separate news conferences in Newark and Manhattan on Tuesday.

They plan to release the names of 50 leaders in New Jersey and 130 in New York who allegedly abused children.

WCBS 880 will be covering the press conference. Listen live for updates

The BSA said in a statement that they ‘care deeply about all victims of child sex abuse and sincerely apologize to anyone who was harmed’

Thousands of Boy Scouts of America leaders face new charges of sexual abuse, claims that are expected to be revealed in detail Tuesday in New York and New Jersey. Names of nearly 200 of the accused are also expected to be released.

The allegations came to light Monday night and a group of alleged victims was expected to testify about the widespread pattern abuse within the scouting organization later Tuesday.

The victims’ attorney, Jeff Anderson, called it a system of denial and cover-ups. He claims the Boy Scouts have files on child abusers within their ranks dating back to the 1940s.

“The lives of the survivors and their families have been shattered and destroyed in so many ways,” Anderson said. He says the new allegations accuse more than 7,000 leaders of abuse, with more than 100 in New York.

The Diversity Imperative


“Every time I’ve been in a room, most people in that room looked like me, sound like me.”

American Fighting Man David Goldfein, the current chief of staff of the United States Air Force, spoke to entrants in the “Spark Tank Competition” at the annual Air Warfare Symposium at Orlando, Florida on February 28, 2019

The Spark Tank Competition’s website explains that it “celebrate[s] Air Force risk-takers, idea makers and entrepreneurs who refuse to accept the status quo and have determined their own fate by developing solutions that make it easier for the Air Force to bring the very best to the fight.”

Goldfein told the assembled Risk-Takers,

“The challenges we face as a nation are wicked hard, and it’s going to take folks with different backgrounds, different life experiences, and different perspectives to be able to come in and sit down together and provide the creative solutions that we as a nation need to be able to fight and win.”

For decades, science fiction publisher Vox Day warned against the madness of Marxist-Leninist political correctness and describes Heritage America’s capitulation to it as a moral failure of men to, well, act like men.

God help America. Here is a comment by Doktor_Jeep at Vox Populi:

So yeah. We’re screwed. All of our other mistakes are covered up well with air power. We’re going to find out the hard way how you can’t win a war with Ritalin-kids and drones.

The USAF was always the vanguard of poz in the armed forces overall. I was there in the 90s when this crap started.

Lolz at The Boy Scouts


From Armchair Anthropologist:

The Boy Scouts of America recently announced that girls can join and earn all the conventional ranks, though the troops will be segregated by sex. Naturally the Girl Scouts USA organization is angry and has sued over a name change.

Do I weep over the loss of a proud American tradition such as the Scouts? Well yes, but more than that I’m laughing.

This is the inevitable path of feminism. Women hate on the Boy Scouts because it’s, by definition, patriarchal. So they decide to include girls so that everyone can benefit. Same as universities and golf clubs. And then the women are even more angry because women are never happy. Now the Boy Scouts are infringing on the Girl Scouts’s own tradition turf.

Serves the BSA right for catering to the progressives. They caved on the gay ban, and now they’re finding out what happens when you give in to progressivism. Traditional organizations should be traditional.

You cannot appease the progressives. The best thing to do is just ignore them and wait a few months for them to attack another organization. It certainly worked for the Washington Redskins.

Both scout organizations are declining, and both have embraced progressivism. Just as no secular country has ever sustained a birth rate, and just as HuffPo, BuzzFeed and Vice are making major layoffs, so too will the classic scouting organizations lose members as they focus on godless propaganda instead of wilderness survival skills.
