WALSH: What My Sons Can Learn From The Self-Destruction Of The Boy Scouts

ByMatt Walsh @MattWalshBlog May 2, 2018    views

The process is complete. The Boy Scouts, a once proud and important organization that helped shape boys into young men, is dead. It had been dying for sometime, but now it is official. In an announcement that would have seemed like an outlandish parody only ten years ago, the Boy Scouts said today that they will be dropping “Boy” from their name. They shall henceforth be known only as Scouts.

The Boy Scouts giving up its name is the inevitable last step in a devolution that began when the Boy Scouts gave up its spine. First, they ceded to the Left’s demands and admitted gay scouts. Then it surrendered again and admitted gay scout leaders. Then it surrendered again and admitted “transgenders.” Then it surrendered again and admitted girls. Then it surrendered once more and abandoned its name and any last vestige of its identity. Now it is just a dry, pitiful husk, curled in a fetal position in the corner, muttering, “No more, no more.”

I won’t let my sons anywhere near this embarrassment of an organization. I want them to be men, not simpering, pathetic, little effeminate weaklings, which is what the “Scouts” embody at this point. But the Scouts will provide a very helpful example for my boys. I plan to use this sad story as a cautionary tale to teach them one crucial thing:

Never, ever, ever, ever surrender to the enemies of truth and reason.

GRUMPA JOE: I Quit!


I Quit!

Dear Boy Scouts of America:

Go to hell, I resign. Take my name along with my twenty-five years of service off your roles. I’m sure Lord Baden-Powell is spinning in his grave because of your stupid decision to bend to the progressive communist message. Let me be frank, allowing girls into BOY scouts makes as much sense as Bruce Jenner becoming a woman. As I wrote in an earlier post you had better develop merit badges for condom usage and sex education.

I would rather see the BSA go out of business because they have lost the interest of the boys of the world. Your branch of explorer scouts which took the same path as you are taking should have given you enough experience to realize this simply won’t work. My prediction is that within ten years you will merge with the Girl Scouts to survive.

OFF GRID THEOLOGY: Boy Scouts Self-Castration Leaves Girl Scouts Wondering


Off The Grid Theology

Boy Scouts

Bill Heid Current Events

For over 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America have used the name Boy Scouts. Seems to make sense, right? With girls set to become Boy Scouts soon, all that has to change.

The Boy Scouts organization announced a new name for the “Boy Scouts” yesterday: Scouts BSA.

Head scout, Mike Surbaugh, said it was “incredibly fun” coming up with the new name.

“We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward,” he said. “We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”

According to “Glass Door”, Surbaugh is the 5th highest paid charity officer in the country making over $1.5 million per year.

CRISIS MAGAZINE: Something Rotten in the Boy Scouts


There’s deception going on in the front office of the Boy Scouts. It includes deliberate misrepresentation of polling data, and threats to pack an upcoming meeting with anonymous and unqualified voters so that the Boy Scout policy on homosexuality gets forced on the majority of Scouts and parents who don’t want it.

The Boy Scouts are considering changing their policy of not allowing open homosexuality in either their Scout or leadership ranks. The policy has placed the Boy Scouts in the buzz saw of the zeitgeist and up until recently they have resisted. There are some weak-kneed leaders who want to throw over the policy and appear willing to violate the Scout Law to do it.

The Scout front office released the result of a national survey and “listening” process that purported to show that the Scouts—boys, parents, leaders and donors—favor a change in the policy. The Boy Scouts say the process reveals great changes in attitudes and that a majority of those at all levels of Scouting “tend to agree that youth should not be denied the benefits of Scouting.”

This was dutifully and even triumphantly reported in the mainstream press.  The only problem is the news reports were wrong. And the news reports were wrong because the Boy Scouts misrepresented the results. One close observer of the Boy Scouts calls the poll “a pack of lies.”

Do Scouting parents want to overhaul the policy and allow open homosexuality in the Scouts? The Executive Summary of the Poll says, “yes”, but the numbers say “no.” Fifty percent of Cub Scout parents support the current restrictive policy while 45% oppose it. A whopping 61% of Boy Scout parents support the current policy.

FABIUS MAXIMUS: Why Boy Scouts went co-ed. What America will lose.


Why Boy Scouts went co-ed. What America will lose.

 

Summary: Boy Scouts are in the news again. As usual, journalists get the story wrong. The real story shows the trends that are molding a new America.

"Scout me in" advertisement

Membership in Boy Scouts of America peaked in 1973 at 4.8 million. Decades of relentless mismanagement by its HQ in Irving, Texas, reduced that to 2.5 billion by ~2012, and to 2.3 million “members” (boys and girls) today. The 437 thousand Mormon boys are roughly one-fifth of BSA membership, and they’re leaving – following BSA’s decision to admit gays and transgendered Scouts. This might leave BSA too small to fund its infrastructure, leading to a death spiral.

The response of the BSA leadership was genius. Boy Scouts’ primary asset is the reputation of Eagle Scouts. Competition for the few slots at prestigious colleges is fierce, and the words “Eagle Scout” on an application can help. Scout troops have increasingly become “Eagle factories.” Parents complete the boys’ projects. Outdoor treks are done only as needed. The parents run troops like schools; boys grudgingly cooperate, and bounce out after getting the little eagle pin — depriving Troops of what should be their Scout leaders. This is antimatter to Scout Spirit.

AMERICAN THINKER: Goodbye, ‘Boy Scouts’; hello, ‘Scouts BSA’

Goodbye, ‘Boy Scouts’; hello, ‘Scouts BSA’

Were you ever a Boy Scout?  Why, you misogynistic creep!  The very name drips of anti-women venom.

Never mind.  The Boy Scouts of America have changed all that.  From now on, the iconic name “Boy Scouts” will be replaced with the more gender-neutral “Scouts BSA.”

Associated Press:

Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said many possibilities were considered during lengthy and “incredibly fun” deliberations before the new name was chosen.

“We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward,” he said.  “We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”

I’m sure it was a lot of fun destroying an institution set up to help boys become men – sort of like pulling the wings off flies, only not as messy.
