Hitler's Bund Deutsche Madel and the Neo-Feminist Girl Scouts
American Thinker ^ | 3-18-2014 | Deborah C. Tyler

Posted on 03/18/2014 4:32:38 AM PDT by servo1969

When we remember the Jewish children thrown alive into ditches by the Nazis and then think about the  little girls outside Walmart selling cookies, it seems an offense to decency to suggest any comparison between the Bund Deutsche Madel (League of German Girls, or BDM) and the Girl Scouts.  Nevertheless, both Nazism and post-1960s American feminism (neo-feminism in this essay) envision exclusionary, utopian socialist societies.  Both indoctrinate girls from a young age to advance their visions.  And there are parallels in structure, activities, and ethos.

Changes to the Girl Scout Law reveal the core of the shifts from individually focused, morally based foundations to a neo-feminist mindset.  The Law I memorized as a Brownie listed virtues to emulate in every situation.  The current Law vitiates virtues into vague, situationally specific, anti-moral formulations that involve making self-directed choices.  Hitler’s utopia was racially pure, while the neo-feminist Girl Scout utopia is a sexually empowered, female-centric, self-esteeming, gender-bending journey.  Both are against human nature, and both nourish the seeds of catastrophe within their premises.

The current Law drops “courteous” for “courage and strength.”  “Thrifty” becomes the progressive gobbledygook “use resources wisely.”  Even worse, the matchless virtues to be “clean in thought, word and deed” become the socialist cliché “make the world a better place.”

The Girl Scout Law


1996 (Current)

1. A Girl Scout's Honor Is to be Trusted
2. A Girl Scout Is Loyal
3. A Girl Scout's Duty Is to be Useful and to Help Others
4. A Girl Scout is a Friend to All, and a Sister to every other Girl Scout
5. A Girl Scout Is Courteous
6. A Girl Scout Is a Friend to Animals
7. A Girl Scout Obeys Orders
8. A Girl Scout is Cheerful
9. A Girl Scout is Thrifty
10. A Girl Scout is Clean in Thought, Word and Deed.

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.

Looks as if the current Girl Scout Law was written by a feminazi lawyer.

Be a sister to every girl scout is equally troubling. Historically referring to people (other than siblings) as brother or sister was the domain of Christians. The left co-opted the terms when unionists started referring to themselves as brothers. That the Girl Scouts are using the term sister suggests, as most of us probably know already, that the organization is run by leftists.
