1980: Can the Boy Scouts Save America? – Texas Monthly


Boy scouting recovered, if you call avoiding certain death recovered, from the lunatic 1972 “Improved Scouting Program” by recalling Green Bar Bill Hillcourt to active scout duty.

Today’s insanity out of Dallas/Ft Worth is identical in all important ways to ISP including the unisex (ummm non-gendered) “SCOUTS:BSA” renaming of Boy Scouts.

Membership dropped to less than two million by 1980. Boy Scouting survived because there were tens of millions of furious grown-up Boy Scouts in 1980, glad to risk their sons in a restored program.

Today, in 2018, there are not tens of millions of former scouts of any persuasion to rescue Boy Scouting from the BSA Inc.

No, I’m afraid this time BSA Inc’s suicide attempt will be a 100% success. The dead cat bounce of SJW rallying to the cause will burn out by the time the current 500,000 Boy Scouts are told they are no longer Boy Scouts, just unisex “Scouts.”

That will be that. The SJWs will move on to the next bastion of bourgeois capitalist society to smash. There were never going to be homosexuals joining that weren’t already members in the closet. The girls will soon enough resent being laughed at as #FakeBoyScouts and that will be that.

BSA Inc may very well survive — as an overpriced outfitter of poorly made, fragile, Chinese clothing and equipment that resembles outdoors gear. REI anyone? Dick’s anyone? Not exactly a growth segment, Communist Outdoors enthusiasts. Even the true tomboys will tire of it, without boys to annoy.

Alas, poor Boy Scouts ! I knew ye.

Can the Boy Scouts Save America? – Texas Monthly

By Brian D. Sweany

A group of Boy Scouts sat around the campfire in the failing light, feeling the freeze-dried gruel they had eaten for dinner beginning to percolate in their stomachs. They stared fixedly at a pot of water in the coals, in which one of the boys was attempting to boil his contact lenses. Big smooth-crowned jays swooped down from the trees and rummaged for leftovers in the pine needles, and every so often the scouts heard the brisk tappity-tap of a mule deer skirting the campsite. The air was rich with the smells of ponderosa pine and Tetrox, a cleaning agent that keeps campfire soot from sticking to cooking pots but that if ingested in even microscopic quantities will cause—as the scouts had been warned by their ranger—“a terminal case of the squirts.”

It was decidedly not the sort of campfire scene that Lord Robert Baden-Powell must have envisioned when he founded the Boy Scouts in 1908—ruddy-faced youngsters sitting around the fire in puttees and campaign hats, singing the Whiffenpoof song. These boys sang no songs, and their trail uniform was minimal: a T-shirt that read “Ragin’ Cajuns—Troop 10—China, Texas.” They were gritty, cynical, and a little profane, and they violated the stereotypes of the Boy Scouts as much as, in some subtle way, they confirmed them. A stranger stumbling upon their campsite might not have immediately taken them for Boy Scouts, but neither would he have taken them for just an ordinary group of boys. They had col­lective qualities of efficiency and harmony that could only have come about through training and a sense of tradition.

Opposing the Transgender Movement – American Thinker

Opposing the Transgender Movement

By Amy Contrada

The transgender war on cultural norms is not just about restrooms and pronouns.  It’s about denying biological fact and quotidian reality.  It’s about an epidemic of irrationality, a cultural contagion, a mass delusion claiming more victims every day.  It’s about silencing free thinkers who refuse to bow to the radical “gender” ideology.

Absurd theories that deny scientific fact have been adopted by the mainstream press, the entertainment industry, the medical establishmentpublic schools,universitiescorporate management, and government agencies.  People who fear social isolation and charges of bigotry are following along.

How do those of us still grounded in reality fight this insanity?  Not with misguided “compassion” or compromise, but with straight talk and tough love.  Let’s not waste our time analyzing or answering absurd gender theories with logical rebuttals.  Those ideas don’t deserve that respect.  And the useful idiots who swallow the trans lies – whether as promotersallies, or victims – will not listen to reason or science.

Oppose trans activism

Refuse to go along with trans madness that declares:

Communist Rules for Revolution & BSA Inc


Here’s a document from the Cold War when Americans understood Communist tactics. Some of us learned about Antonio Gramsci’s “Long March through the Institutions” and recognize it as the tactic chosen to destabilize America.

BSA Inc was infiltrated, subverted and converged by Commies. We see every insane Communist provocation. “Girl” boy scouts is a particularly evil attempt at dividing the remnant Boy Scout membership against itself. Is there any other social provocation that would be more divisive?

Qui bono?

Not our boys.

The real aim of emasculated, feminized, gender-queer “boy scouting” is to smash the last remaining national institution that helps form men.

Read this newspaper clipping from 1975. It details the Communist Rules for Revolution as published in Germany, 1919.

How many of these have been accomplished at the BSA Inc? Your church and schools?

Boy Scouts 24th World Jamboree Has A New Accessory: Condoms [VIDEO]


Shamelessly stolen from the excellent blog of the Victory Girls.

This year, the Boy Scouts or BSA as they are now called, debuted their new theme for the 24th World Jamboree. That theme is “Unlock A New World.” And it seems that “New World” involves condoms. Yes, condoms.

The guidelines require that host organizations, who in this case include the former Boy Scouts of America (now Scouts BSA),

“… ensure that condoms are readily and easily accessible for all participants and IST [staff] at a number of locations on the site. Heads of Contingent must be informed in advance and made aware of their responsibility in communicating this policy to their Participants, Unit Leaders, Contingent Staff, and IST in an appropriate way.” (See Guideline 7.3 on page 10 of the document.) [Emphasis Added]

Yes, it’s in the actual guidelines.  Specifically Guideline 7.3 on page 10.

It was just two weeks ago that the organization announced their name change.  Needless to say, THAT wasn’t received well at all.

What is or was the motto for the Boy Scouts?

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

I say was …because offering condoms to minors is definitely NOT an example of good morals.

What are the traits a Scout is supposed to exemplify?

TRUSTWORTHY. Tell the truth and keep promises. People can depend on you.

LOYAL. Show that you care about your family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and country.

HELPFUL. Volunteer to help others without expecting a reward.

FRIENDLY. Be a friend to everyone, even people who are very different from you.

COURTEOUS. Be polite to everyone and always use good manners.

KIND. Treat others as you want to be treated . Never harm or kill any living thing without good reason.

OBEDIENT. Follow the rules of your family, school, and pack. Obey the laws of your community and country.

CHEERFUL. Look for the bright side of life. Cheerfully do tasks that come your way. Try to help others be happy.

THRIFTY. Work to pay your own way. Try not to be wasteful. Use time, food, supplies, and natural resources wisely.

BRAVE. Face difficult situations even when you feel afraid. Do what you think is right despite what others might be doing or saying.

CLEAN. Keep your body and mind fit . Help keep your home and community clean.

REVERENT. Be reverent toward God. Be faithful in your religious duties. Respect the beliefs of others.

Will someone PLEASE tell me how condoms fit into any of this? The answer is, they don’t. Those who attend the Jamboree must be between the ages of 12-18. And with that, I know that sadly many will just shrug their shoulders and say – boys everywhere are sexually active now – it’s no big deal. Yes, it is a big deal.

First of all, the ethics and values of what was the Boy Scouts organization stood firm on the high ground of character, integrity, and morals.

This from John Stemberger with Trail Life USA:

“In light of the mandatory condom policy, it is not clear how far down the rabbit hole the Boy Scouts will continue to fall. With the addition of condoms and alcohol, the World Jamboree is starting to sound more like a 1960s Woodstock festival rather than a campout that parents would want to send their children to! 

But now, it seems to be more about political correctness and virtue signaling as Kim wrote about here.

Who loses in all this? The young boys in the organization.

Yes, the Boy Scout organization has lost their moral compass. The organization has abandoned that which made it great and and thrown onto the trash heap that which took boys and turned them into men of character, honor, and integrity. How sadly prescient that Marta wrote just yesterday about the Values we have lost.

This is NOT the kind of ‘new world’ we should be unlocking. This move by the Boy Scouts highlights another instance of how low we have fallen. I fear for this Republic, I fear for our young men and our future if this continues.

Relevance & Success: Selling Surplus Boy Scout Camps


Here we see rubber (heh) hitting the road. Boy Scout camps are closing all over the country. Why? Because they are unused.

Why are they unused? Because Boy Scouting sucks dick.

Yeah, I just wrote that.

Marxist-Leninists and their dupes have succeed in ruining the Boy Scouts over many years. Each watering down of the program, each idiotic attempt at “relevance” made the program less and less palatable to fathers, mothers, and the boys themselves.

Long gone citizenship and character.

Welcome sex — sex ! — in the age of “#MeToo”.

A baseball bat is the answer but the country’s not there. Yet.

Committee to discuss sale of Boy Scouts camp

Magistrates Dickie Carter, Thomas Bouldin and Barry Joe Wright, members of an existing needs and building committee for the county, has been tasked by Judge-Executive Logan Chick to direct their attention to representing the county in talks with the Lincoln Heritage Council, owners of Badgett Reservation, better known as Wildcat Boy Scout Camp.

The council decided to put the 700 plus acre camp up for sale earlier this year, which drew the attention of the fiscal court, some magistrates in favor of putting an offer in on the property.

BAD KARMA: Tom Stewart’s molestation by SCOUT B.S.A.


What drew my attention to this particular story of Tom Stewart’s  horrific molestation is the service strip on the right breast pocket of his uniform: “SCOUT B.S.A.”
.
It was bad karma in 1972 and it’s even worse karma in 2018.
.
No good will come from the insane National Executive Committee’s violent sodomization of the entire history of the boy scouting movement.

(2012) Court: Boy Scouts can keep new abuse files private

In this Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012 photo, Boy Scout abuse victim Tom Stewart poses for a photo with his old Scout uniform outside the Boy Scout Camp Kilworth in Federal Way, Wash. A newly opened trove of confidential papers shows that authorities and local Boy Scout quietly shielded scoutmasters and others accused of molesting children.

DALLAS The Boy Scouts of America will not immediately have to turn over 27 years of so-called “perversion files” the group keeps on sexual abuse complaints against adults involved in the organization, a Texas appeal court has ruled.

A former scout who says he was sexually assaulted by a now-imprisoned former scoutmaster has filed suit in San Antonio against the national Boy Scouts and the local group in San Antonio. His attorneys want the Boy Scouts of America to turn over internal files on scout leaders dating from 1985 to last year.

State District Judge Martha Tanner ruled in August that the Scouts would have to release those files to the teenager’s attorneys. The 4th Texas Court of Appeals on Thursday granted the Scouts’ request to stay that portion of her order.

The public release in October of files dating from 1959 to 1985 revealed a cover-up of decades of sexual abuse, as Scout leadership sought to shield scoutmasters and other adult leaders from criminal charges. The national Scouts organization, based in the Dallas suburb of Irving, has said it now requires any suspicion of abuse to be reported to law enforcement.

Attorneys for the former scout are expected to file a response to the appeals court sometime next week.

Paul Mones, a Portland, Ore., attorney who is one of the lawyers representing the teen, said on Friday that he didn’t know what the more recent files might contain.

“We do know, as does the rest of the United States, what’s contained in 1959 to 1985,” Mones said. “So over the last 27 years, obviously that’s something that we believe … will be important.”

The Hell With the Boys: Coed Scouting? 5 Research-Based Reasons Girls And Boys Should Scout Together


Kim Elsesser is the poster girl for screwing boys. In her Second Wave feminist mind, makes exist to serve females. Period.

No one gives a damn about the boys, the men of America’s future. NO ONE. NOT ELSESSER, NOT BSA INC, NOT A DAMNED ONE SHOVING THEM DOWN OUR THROATS.

#MeToo is a cruel joke with the Boy Scouts as its butt.

Coed Scouting? 5 Research-Based Reasons Girls And Boys Should Scout Together

The Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday it would be admitting girls into its Cub Scout program, but not everyone thinks coed scouting is a good idea.  The Girl Scouts still seem to think single-sex scouting is preferable, releasing this statement Wednesday night: “The benefit of the single-gender environment has been well-documented by educators, scholars, other girl- and youth-serving organizations.”   But, the research does not seem to support this notion that single-sex environments benefit children, and instead suggests that there is more stereotyping when children socialize with only their own sex.  Below are five research results that may surprise you:
