Killed and Gutted

A wise man once summed up how the Social Justice Left works:

1. Identify a respected institution.
2. kill it.
3. gut it.
4. wear its carcass as a skin suit, while demanding respect.

Today, the Boy Scouts of America accelerated its swift decline into a left-wing social justice outfit. I mean, let’s be blunt here… this is *not* about creating opportunities for girls. Girls are now vastly overprivileged compared to boys in educational opportunities and in terms of societal institutions catering to them. This is about taking an American institution and turning into another organization devoted to left-wing indoctrination.

  1. Why I’m avoiding the NFL. The Left takes unifying symbols and uses them to divide. Whatever happens with the NFL, they’ll have the stigma of SJW fealty.

  2. The BSA has been on a Leftist trajectory into irrelevancy for over 40-years now; ever since they rewrote the Scouting Handbook in the late 70s from avoiding a bear while camping to avoiding the Asst Scoutmaster, and swapped-out Johnson&Johnson for the Texas Southern Baptist crazies as their corporate sugar-daddy.

    Maybe providing an alternative to the Girl Scouts will revitalize the BSA. The Girls Scouts today are nothing but a massive overpriced, high-pressure cookie-selling machine, that moonlights by lingering-about supermarket entrances panhandling. Can anyone explain the current GS mission statement? …Other than Must.Sell.More.Cookies!

  3. Oh but you are such a QUEEN!!!

    Were you stamping your foot and sticking your bottom lip out while typing this?

    If girls want to join, what does it matter? If a girl has the will, desire determination and skills to advance in the scouts, good for her and why do you care?
    Girls have been in the scouts for a long time.

  4. mike: “Girls have been in the scouts for a long time.”
    I was not aware of this. Could you please provide some links.

    Ted B: “Can anyone explain the current GS mission statement?”
    For the material below, please see http://www.girlscouts.org/en/about-girl-scouts/who-we-are.html

    Girl Scout Mission: Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

    Girl Scout Promise: On my honor, I will try: to serve God and my country, to help people at all times, and to live by the Girl Scout Law.

    Girl Scout Law: I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.

  5. Most of us see the Girl Scouts as an organization that sells cookies and promotes Planned Parenthood.

    Comment by V the K — October 12, 2017 @ 8:33 am - October 12, 2017

  6. Must.Sell.More.Cookies!
    ….But they’re terrible cookies.
    Must.Sell.More.Cookies!!
    …And they’re very expensive.
    Must.Sell.More.Cookies!!!
    …But I don’t want any cookies.
    Must.Sell.More.Cookies!
    …Cookies! …Must.Sell!

  7. The Girls Scouts must have been so awesome that their members needed to jump ship and join the Boy Scouts. (Those males! How dare they have such a supremacist enterprise without us!! We must improve upon it, immediately!)

    What’s funny is that they (supposedly, for now) will have segregated programs for the two (OMG!!) genders.

    Wonders never cease to amaze me.

    Hilarious, since mikey is one of those who screamed that the mere presence of boys is “oppression” for women.

    So why are women seeking to be oppressed?

  9. #2 – I wonder if funding (as always) was the issue… I mean, why self-fund with cookie sales if they can join in with sponsors like J&J handing them the operating budget, instead? But why couldn’t they get that for the GS?? Bad management? Interesting…

  10. I defy anyone to name a single institution that got better after the left took it over.

    Comment by V the K — October 12, 2017 @ 10:28 am - October 12, 2017

  11. I don’t know about ‘better’ but the persecution of Jews in Germany certainly got more efficient when the National Socialists took it over.

  12. lil letter mike must have missed this answer to his question

    https://www.buzzfeed.com/tasneemnashrulla/girl-scouts-letter-to-boy-scouts?

    The girl scouts are not happy.

    If I were the parent of a Boy Scout, I would remove my son from the BSA as soon as the first girl was admitted to his Troop. The dangers of a sexual assault charge are just too great in today’s society. Militant Feminist Mom’s will be enrolling their daughters in the BSA with the sole mission of destroying it.

  13. Will the JSW go after Hollywood? Nope, they won’t.

  14. “The Boy Scouts’ house is on fire,” a Girl Scouts spokesman told ABC News. “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.”

    I feel like “deficient programming” means they aren’t doing enough left-wing indoctrination to satisfy the SJWs. The Feminist think boys need to be taught that masculinity is “toxic” and that they hate themselves for their “Patriarchal Privilege.”

  15. The Feminist think boys need to be taught that masculinity is “toxic” and that they hate themselves for their “Patriarchal Privilege.”

    What is interesting is the so-called rise of Toxic Masculinity has happened at the same time as the rise in the number of women who are raising children as single mothers. Is this a backlash against absent fathers?

    The Boys Scouts dumped Johnson&Johnson 40-years ago for a bunch of crazy Baptists in Texas; who had packed the Board, re-wrote the Handbook and relocated HQ operations to Texas. The Johnson family had been major sponsors of Scouting for generations going back to Dan Beard and Teddy Roosevelt. Their influence can be seen in the “old Scouting” emphasis or preparedness and first-aid, and the virtues of health, clean air and outdoor activities.

    But after the “social reformers” got their claws into Scouting in the social upheavals after Vietnam and Watergate the program was never the same. I think Scouting’s membership is down to 5% of what it was when I was active in the early 1980s. The new National Leadership managed to alienate the Mainstream Protestant churches and the RC Church that were their institutional backbone as Troop-sponsors, and managed to get themselves kicked out of the public schools and the Welcome Mat withdrawn at most public parks.

    Plus they watered-down the Eagle Badge and eliminated many of the required camping/hiking activities while pillaging the BSA’s extensive real estate portfolio selling off the immensely-valuable summer camp properties in sweetheart deals to their “friends”. This then pissed-off “old Scouting’s” big Fortune-500 corporate donors who had given land and funds generously so the now-sold camps would be held in-perpetuity for future generations.

    “Going hiking and camping” became too-white, too-elitist, too-expensive for poor urban black families — so lets get rid of it. (Strange, it wasn’t a problem for poor urban Italian, Irish or German immigrant families, …it was a prized gateway to becoming more American.) The uniforms were too-paramilitary, let’s just wear a t-shirt. Overt patriotism is too exclusionary, dump it. It’s all about drugs, chasing out suspected gay Scoutmasters, social-activism in some church-basement. “Fresh-air? …My special-snowflake has allergies. Get wet? …He might DIE!!! Spend the weekend in the woods in a tent? …He might be molested. (And worse he might enjoy it and go-GAY! ….Oy, the horrors.)

  17. apple betty (#4) Girls have been in the Explorers (and another program–Voyagers?) part of the boy scouts for older scouts for a few decades. Boy Scouts as such has all continued to be all boy.

    I think there is a good place for single sex groups at the ages for cub and boy scouts. This going co-ed will reduce the number of all boy places, while not affecting the number of all girl places.

    Also, I agree that sexual harassment/assault issues are going to cause many parents to take their kids out of the programs. Everybody loses; nobody wins.

  18. mike is a good example of a leftist in the mold I mention in a later comment: destruction of one institution after another.

    Not a thought given as to why the Boy Scouts and the Girls Scouts were once beneficial organizations helping to mold citizens… just “tear it down – because reasons”. Who cares what the fallout is – never look back.

    I’m reminded of the parable about the guy wanting to tear down a fence without first considering that the fence may be there for a good reason.

  19. did anybody doubt that policies like this would happen when Robert gates became the head of the boy scouts?
