That face when 90% of your Boy Scouts quit because you just killed Boy Scouts.

Priceless.

Grand Teton BSA CEO invites all youth to continue with Scouts after 2019

Clarke Farrer, the Grand Teton Council BSA Scout CEO, issued the following statement to EastIdahoNews.com Tuesday evening:

The announcement that the LDS Church will be discontinuing their relationship with the BSA will have a significant impact on the Grand Teton Council. At the end of 2017 the Council had over 23,000 registered youth members. Approximately 80% of them are members of the LDS Church.

The Church’s announcement includes the statement that they encouraged Church members to remain fully engaged in all of the current [Scouting] programs through 2019, including continued financial support of Scouting.

The Council’s volunteers and staff are fully committed to providing outstanding Scouting experiences to all of our youth members. We will invite all of them to continue on their Scouting journey towards Eagle Scout after 2019. LDS families will still have to option to have their sons remain in Scouting, just like they participate in other activities such as sports teams, band, and performing arts.

IDAHO FALLS — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is ending its longtime relationship with the Boy Scouts of America.

In a joint statement with the Boy Scouts of America, the church announced that effective Dec. 31, 2019, its relationship as a chartered organization with all scouting programs around the world would end, according to a church news release.

“Until then, the intention of the Church is to remain a fully engaged partner in Scouting for boys and young men ages 8–13. All youth, families and leaders are encouraged to continue their active participation and financial support of scouting until that date,” the church said.

Last May, the church announced it was partially ending its relationship with the Boy Scouts. At that time LDS Church eliminated the program for 14 to 18 year olds in lieu of creating its own youth program.

Last week, the Boy Scouts of America announced it would be dropping “boy” from its title, becoming Scouts BSA.

The LDS Church has historically been biggest sponsor of the program in the United States.

BSA Inc Political Jargon: What the hell is “youth” ? ? ?


Never use the language of the Enemy. Our boys are boys. They are not “youth.”

If you’ve subjected yourself to reading anything produced by the BSA Inc since ~ 2010 you are dumbfounded by the strange, cult-like vocabulary deployed.

Chief among this is the curious, strange, even perverted use of “youth.”

@BSAChief Cuck Michael Surbaugh blabbered to us last week,

“That is why it is important that the name for our Scouting program for older youth remain consistent with the single name approach used for the Cub Scouts.”

Historically, “youth” is a noun used to describe a period of someone’s lifetime, “in my youth.” It also refers to the older children of a nation, “the youth of America” but while it is not specifically masculine, it was almost always intended to mean a nation’s older boys and young men poised to assume their rightful place in society.

The BSA Inc uses “youth” to lie. It is a politically correct way to avoid saying “boys” and everyone knows it.

To me, it’s a simple way to discover the BSA Inc’s covert “political officers” among a group of dads. No man in his right mind calls his own son a “youth” and no parent ever smiles and brags of helping raise “youth” to “adulthood.”

No, fathers are proud of their boys and work, sometimes die, to see them into manhood.

Never use the language of the Enemy. Our boys are boys. They are not “youth.”  Saying “youth” instead of “boys” is a sneaky means of normalizing girls in the Boy Scouts. It is exactly the same as call abortion “choice.”

Let our boys be boys. Literally.

RUSSIA TODAY Mocks BSA Chief Michael Surbaugh for Removing Boys from Boy Scouts


Leave it to the Ruskies. Under command authority of Russian tasr Valdimir Putin, english-language state broadcaster RT (Russia Today) mocks the Boy Scouts of America (@boyscouts) for giving in to thrid wave gender feminism and deleting boys from the Boy Scouts.

With girls soon to be allowed to join the organization, the Boy Scouts will officially become known as Scouts BSA in 2019 to reflect the “inclusive” nature of the century-old club. The group’s board of directors unanimously voted to accept all children, regardless of gender, in October – a decision that may have been spurred, at least in part, by dropping enrollment in the club. There are currently around 2.3 million scouts in the United States – down nearly 30 percent since 2000.

“As we enter a new era for our organization, it is important that all youth can see themselves in Scouting in every way possible,” Boy Scouts of America chief executive Michael Surbaugh said in a statement. “That is why it is important that the name for our Scouting program for older youth remain consistent with the single name approach used for the Cub Scouts.” The Cub Scouts are for younger children aged 7-10.

But the name change may have been a gender-inclusive bridge too far, with some conservatives now tweeting eulogies to US manhood.

“R.I.P. Boy Scouts, 1910-2018. Yet another institution has come under siege by Political Correctness. Liberalism is slowly decaying everything that was once good in our society,” Lucian B. Wintrich, the DC Bureau Chief for the conservative Gateway Pundit, tweeted.

“This is the culture war we face. The goal of the left is to convert men into weak, feckless, cupcakes,” Allen West, a political commentator and former US congressman, wrote.

Another former congressman, Joe Walsh, shared a similar sentiment: “We’re doing our best to raise a generation of boys who will not be able to defend themselves, their families, or their country,” Walsh wrote.

Many in the Twitterati blamed the name change on “political correctness” and “feminists,” with some suggesting the club rename itself “Soy Scouts.”

Others responded to the news by creating images of the gender-neutral dystopia that soon awaits America’s youth:

Critics also described the name change as hypocritical, with one Twitter user writing: “Everywhere we look, exclusively male spaces are being invaded and neutralized. At the same time, exclusively female spaces thrive and grow. This hypocrisy is unsustainable.”

“Now that the Boy Scouts no longer exist and must accept girls, how is it possible Girl Scouts still exist, but don’t accept boys?” wrote American actor James Woods in response to the news.

Businessman and former US presidential candidate Herman Cain mourned the end of “Boy Scouts” – but warned other conservatives to avoid blowing the name change out of proportion.

“Farewell, ‘Boy Scouts,’ 108 years is a good run. Welcome, future ‘Scouts.’ …And remember, being conservative doesn’t mean you have to freak out about everything. That’s a horrible way to live. Leave it to the left,” Cain wrote.

The Girl Scouts of America has not directly commented on the name change. But the exclusively girls’ club criticized the Boy Scouts’ October decision to admit girls, telling ABC News in a statement that: “Instead of addressing systemic issues of continuing sexual assault, financial mismanagement and deficient programming, BSA’s senior management wants to add an accelerant to the house fire by recruiting girls.”

More than 3,000 girls are already enrolled in the BSA’s Early Adopter Program, allowing them to participate in the Cub Scouts ahead of the formal policy change.
