On Wednesday, the Boy Scouts announced that their signature program known simply as the “Boy Scouts”—which serves ages 10 to 17—will no longer bear the word “boy.” Beginning in February, it will be known as Scouts BSA.

This change comes only months after the Boy Scouts announced girls would be allowed into the program. Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said they wanted to choose a name that “evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward.”

This name change, and the “inclusive” policy change that preceded it, indicates a fundamental shift away from the mindset that first gave rise to the Boy Scouts in the early 20th century. One can’t shake the impression that if the Boy Scouts were starting from scratch, they’d ditch even the acronym “BSA” and go completely gender-neutral.

It’s worth probing that fundamental shift in mindset.

CARLSON & KIRK: Why The Left Hates The Boy Scouts

Tucker Carlson And Charlie Kirk: Why The Left Hates The Boy Scouts

ByRobert Kraychik

October 12, 2017

The Left’s contempt for the Boy Scouts of America is rooted in the boys’ organization’s patriotism and wholesomeness, asserted both Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson and Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk on Wednesday.

“Even before the current gender battles, which are obviously part of this, the Left disliked the Boy Scouts,” said Kirk, “and I always thought it was because the Boy Scouts are the two things they hate; they’re wholesome and they’re non-ironic.”

Kirk traced the hatred for the Boy Scouts back to the Left’s Marxist roots, which pit them against “traditional values.”

“What the Left is trying to accomplish is a deconstruction of traditional values, and this goes back to the 1920s and 1930s, and this is what the Marxists have been so effective in doing in overtaking our universities, and this is just another attack on a fundamental institution that has proven to be successful over the last 100 years in turning boys into men,” he said, adding, “and men do matter, but the Left does not think so.”

“As an Eagle Scout, I’m disgusted and disappointed to see this,” said Kirk in reference to the Boy Scouts’ decision to begin admitting girls.

Partial transcript below.

CARLSON: But even before the current gender battles, which are obviously part of this, the left disliked the Boy Scouts, and I always thought it was because the Boy Scouts are the two things they hate; they’re wholesome and they’re non-ironic. It’s the same reason the left always hates the Mormons, there’s no ironic inflection, they’re just sincere. Why does that drive liberals so crazy?

KIRK: Well, it also goes to show why they’re supporting these national anthem protests [at the NFL]. They hate patriotism, and there’s no group more than the Boy Scouts that have defended the flag or have engendered or fostered patriotism amongst our youth, and one of the key components of being a Boy Scout is understanding the flag code, and being involved in your local community, and understanding what it means to actually serve your country.

What the Left is trying to accomplish is a deconstruction of traditional values, and this goes back to the 1920s and 1930s, and this is what the Marxists have been so effective in doing in overtaking our universities, and this is just another attack on a fundamental institution that has proven to be successful over the last 100 years in turning boys into men; and men do matter, but the Left does not think so.

CARLSON: I absolutely agree with that.

WND: The left used ‘Milosophy’ to corrupt the Boy Scouts


Milo Yiannopoulos is dead wrong. Sexual relationships between boys and older men never benefit the boys. Selective perception is not reality, and it is right to condemn his statements.

It’s that kind of thinking that has been used by the left for decades to sell pathologically onerous ideas to America.

Consider this scenario. America mourns a crisis, with real human victims and clearly identifiable good guys and bad guys.

But abracadabra, within a few years, the bad guys become the victims, America’s protectiveness is called a “phobia,” the media pound this message incessantly, the bad guys win, and everyone is looking around and saying, “What happened?”

The left keeps doing this – spinning really bad news (for them) into successful assaults on morality, security and Judeo-Christian Western civilization.

They insist illegal immigrants, even if they might be radicalized jihadists, enter America – the country attacked by Islamic terrorists on 9/11. When did non-citizens gain civil-rights protection under the U.S. Constitution?

Saul Alinsky would cheer about how progressives have flipped that issue and also their triumph in thoroughly corrupting the Boy Scouts.

The BSA just revised its national policy to allow a 9- year-old girl in New Jersey to pose as a boy as she joined a Cub Scout pack in Secaucus. The national board opened the door several years ago to open homosexual expression among boys and then their leaders.

The next step? A woman posing as a guy heading a Boy Scout troop. It’s coming, probably this year. And BSA national will cave, fearing a lawsuit.

So how does this lunacy happen considering the history of the Boy Scouts?

In the year 2000, the Scouts won a pivotal case at the U.S. Supreme Court. Boy Scouts of America v. Dale affirmed the right of this private organization to bar the expression of open homosexuality.

However, the Scouts were already reeling from publicity about decades of molestation incidents by some of their leaders. The true extent may never be known, but America was shocked by what was revealed by the Los Angeles Times in a massive file of incidents.

Another Los Angeles Times story described an abusive Scout leader who went on to become an AIDS researcher, with ties to the homosexual community.

He was never arrested. He was ousted from the Scouts, left town, and that was it. The five boys he repeatedly abused carry the scars for life.

Since such incidents occurred while the Boy Scouts still technically prohibited homosexuality among leaders and boys, the sheer volume was used to muscle in the homosexual agenda. “See? These were mostly straight guys, not homosexuals!” But no, it’s likely they were mostly closeted homosexuals.

This is what the left does – magnifies presumed hypocrisy and recommends its twisted replacement version of the truth.

And so the narrative that child molestation is unrelated to “gay” identity got a huge boost. And when that fails, they say, “It’s no big deal.” That’s been the party line of the homosexual lobby and helps open the door for proud homosexuals to waltz into youth organizations, camps and schools.

Except that it’s not true that open homosexual expression poses no threat to youth. Adult males who desire other male adults as partners are more likely than authentically heterosexual males to also be sexually attracted to boys.

Just a quick perusal of websites, magazines and homosexual-themed fiction reveals that the homosexual male subculture continues its perennial worship of the pubescent “boy” as an especially desirable object of sexual pursuit. Why would this be such a frequent theme if it were not common? And Milo says it’s OK – except when he doesn’t. He apparently experienced child sexual abuse.

The Scouts routinely covered up abuses in the ’70s, 80s and 90s. Then the truth emerged.

But Dale was seen as a standard to be smashed in the eyes of many, like Zach Wahls of Scouts for Equality, who, in typical homosexual fashion, makes his own rules, defiantly building a network of local troops that fully accept the “inclusive” national policies, since not all do (and that’s the somewhat good news). Wahls’ group is assisting more “LGBT people” to become Scout leaders.

Yet the Scouts for Equality map shows that fully “inclusive” troops are relatively rare, especially in the Midwest and South. Most troops still don’t advertise homosexuality as an explicit feature, and there are solid reasons for this.

Youth organizations attract in disproportionate numbers people who want to have sexual encounters with kids, and same-gender environments offer heightened access.

Yet “morally straight” has been redefined in Scouting, and many boys will not learn that homosexuality remains deeply disordered, sinful behavior.

The new Boy Scout approach ignores two realities of human interaction and male homosexual/transgendered behavior. One, is that those who engage in deviant behavior are often habitually deceptive.

I know this is a generalization, but it turns out to be largely true. They also, quite obviously, see nothing wrong with the homosexual life and will “sell” it to impressionable youth, even if there is no sexual contact.

We can guarantee, however, that there will be. And how frantically will BSA cover this up in a declining organization, terrified of expensive litigation, betting on the myth that homosexual identity poses no more risk to boys than a heterosexual one?

Two: It doesn’t take actual physical contact to corrupt the mind, heart and spirit of a child. Yet most parents do not want proud homosexuality for their boys. What Scouting parents are now doing is gambling their sons won’t be the ones targeted for repeated innuendos of attraction by a “gay” Scout leader or another peer. They are gambling that the presence of an emotionally disturbed girl who thinks she’s a boy will not sway the real boys to consider the destabilizing influence of “gender fluidity.”

It’s a time bomb, and the BSA is not facing reality – or worse. It’s possible some in leadership have a “Milosophy” that little harm is done.

Parents should keep their boys away.

MAD WORLD NEWS: Boy Scouts Dead After Bowing To Tantrum From Social Justice Warriors


Boy Scouts Dead After Bowing To Tantrum From Social Justice Warriors

For social justice warriors, it is imperative that kids be taught from a young age that men are evil and that they are allowed to have nothing. That was proven again on Wednesday when the Boys Scouts of America was finally destroyed by them. But what the SJWs did not expect was the response they received.

After 108 years of existence, the Boy Scouts announced on Wednesday that the organization will change its name after it decided to accept girls for membership. The new name will take effect next February, and it will now be called Scouts BSA, the Associated Press reported.

Mike Surbaugh, the Chief Scout Executive, told the Press that the process of picking a new name took time but was “incredibly fun.” It was “incredibly fun” to drive a social justice stake into the heart of a century-old organization because the word “boy” could trigger someone.

“We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward,” Surbaugh said. “We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.” He said that the parent organization will continue to be called the Boy Scouts of America and the program for 7 – 10-year-olds will continue to be called the Cub Scouts.

HUCKABEE Blasts Name Change, New Co-Ed Nature; Boy Scouts of America ‘Effectively Dead’


Huckabee Blasts Name Change, New Co-Ed Nature; Boy Scouts of America ‘Effectively Dead’


Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee reacted to the Boy Scouts of America renaming their marquee organization “Scouts BSA” in a nod to the newly co-ed nature of the group.

Boy Scouts of America chief executive Michael Surbaugh announced the change Wednesday, months after the organization began accepting girls into Cub Scouts.

Surbaugh said the BSA is “trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”

“I think the Boy Scouts are effectively dead,” Huckabee said, adding that in the 108 years prior to Surbaugh’s decision, the Boy Scouts gave young men “an identity” as well as “camaraderie and fellowship” that a co-ed organization cannot.

“There really is a difference between boys and girls and the way they think and the way they grow up,” he said.

WND: Boy Scouts’ destruction is now complete


From WND:

Boy Scouts’ destruction is now complete

The steady and intentional destruction of one of the most revered institutions in America representing all that we once aspired young men to be is essentially complete. The insidious takeover of the voting leadership of the Boy Scouts of America by radical LGBTQIA activists and sympathizers led to the open acceptance of homosexual scouts and scoutmasters just a few years ago, a 180 degree turn from it’s historic standard for boys to be “morally straight.”

BSA also very intentionally eradicated the lines between male and female, which today, May 2, 2018, reached the depths of this attack as news reports came out with the following stunning revelation:

The decision to allow some participation by girls was made by families of current members, not activists or leftist lawyers.When word went out late Wednesday that girls would be allowed to participate in some Boy Scout programs, conservative reaction was swift and not subtle:

“Gender benders, ” said Fox Host Laura Ingraham. “I thought that was what Girl Scouts was for?????” tweeted out Donald Trump Jr. “This is a slippery slope. Where does it stop?” asked Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council. “Another notch in that Leftist, anti-God, anti-traditional family belt,” announced Cheryl Chumley in the Washington Times.

Whoa. Pull back them reins. The Boy Scouts are not turning your sons into pajama boys.
