Skip to comments.Obama: An Enemy Of Boy Scouts
Posted on 01/26/2009 5:03:57 AM PST by IbJensen
Boy Scout Troop 358, one of the oldest African-American troops in the county, participated in history as it marched in the Inaugural Parade in Washington, D.C. as the first African-American became President of the United States.
Truly an honor for any Scout troop, however have the leaders of this troop taken a close look at an issue that will directly affect the very existence of Boy Scouting in America? The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide family group, is questioning whether they realize President Barack Obama supports the very policies that are targeting their headquarters in Philadelphia.
Troop 358 is part of the Cradle of Liberty Scout Council, which has been in a pitched battle with the City of Philadelphia to retain the headquarters they built and have maintained since 1929 on property the 1928 City Council gave the Scouts free use of in perpetuity or forever.
Last May, the Cradle of Liberty Scout Council sued the city to prevent their eviction. That case was given a green light to proceed by a judge last fall, remarked Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA.
Why is the City of Philadelphia seeking to evict the Scouts? It is because of their ban on allowing open homosexual leaders and members.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Scouts have the right, as a private organization, to choose who they want to be leaders and members. Ever since that time they have been targeted by homosexual organizations and activists who are trying to remold the Boy Scouts of America in their image.
In 1983 Philadelphia added sexual orientation to its Fair Practices Ordinance. Two decades later, under pressure from homosexual groups, the attack against the Scouts began.
Pressure on the Cradle of Liberty Scout Council, one of the largest in the nation serving more than 69,000 youth, has been intense over the past six years as they lost hundreds of thousands of dollars of support from Pew Charitable Trust and Southeastern Pennsylvania United Way, in addition to the threat of eviction.
Yes, it is a great honor to be part of the inaugural parade, but at what costs? Do these Boy Scout leaders fully realize that President Obama supports a wide range of so-called gay rights measures. He has said he will use the Office of President as a bully pulpit to advance their causes.
Mr. Obama, knowingly or unknowingly, may be a part of the end of the Boy Scouts of America as we know them, Ms. Gramley further stated.
No Boy Scout was he.
Obama insists that the Boy Scouts of America is obligated to set themselves up as hunting grounds for pedophiles.
You’re damn right I’m discriminating against homosexuals having that opportunity!
Anyone who cannot see the conflict between young boy scouts and homosexual scout leaders is too dumb to breathe.
He’s a Liberal! He’s either gonna hate the boy scouts or like them WAY too much! nudge nudge... wink wink...
Hussein would prefer something like the “Lil Black Panthers”, or the “Union Thug Chilren”, or the “Young ACORN Nuts”.
Obama is a maxrist who is (and will be) against anything that fosters anything like that. He is already demonstrating this in his first weeks in office and it will continue and get worse.
He’s a Liberal! He’s either gonna hate the boy scouts or like them WAY too much! nudge nudge... wink wink...
My only charity boy scouts.
If Obama has in mind making enemies out of the Boy Scouts then he is a fool.
That would be like making enemies with 100,000+ MacGyvers, across the Nation and around the world. That would be like unleashing the A-Team upon one’s self: not just one A-Team, but thousands of them, around each street corner, waiting to spring into action. Boy Scouts make al Qaeda look like girlie men (well, because they are — but that’s beside the point!)
I would not want to have the Boy Scouts for enemies. No way! They are infinitely resourceful, cunning, and always prepared. And they stand for good wholesome values, and they never give up.
Their proud alumni would reach into all branches of life and well into the military and corporate circles. Once a Scout, always a Scout.
He is a fool to meddle with them. There are a lot of votes in the Scouting movement.
Although identified only as Frank in Mr Obamas memoir Dreams from My Father, it has now been established that he was Frank Marshall Davis, a radical activist and journalist who had been suspected of being a member of the Communist Party in the 1950s.
Mr Davis moved to Honolulu from Chicago in 1948 with his second wife Helen Canfield, a white socialite, at the suggestion of his friend the actor Paul Robeson, who advised them that there would be more tolerance of a mixed race couple in Hawaii than on the American mainland.
A bohemian libertine who drank heavily and loved jazz, he became friends with Stanley Dunham, Mr Obamas maternal grandfather in the 1960s. Mr Davis died in 1987 at the age of 81, five years before Mr Dunham.
He knew Stan real well, said Dawna Weatherly-Williams, a close friend of Mr Davis Theyd play Scrabble and drink and crack jokes and crack jokes and argue. Frank always won and he was always very braggadocio about it too. It was all jocular.
They didnt get polluted drunk. And Frank never really did drugs, though he and Stan would smoke pot together. While his mother was in Indonesia during part of his teenage years, Mr Obama lived with his white grandparents. Mrs Weatherly-Williams said that the poet was first introduced to the future Democratic presidential candidate in 1970 at the age of 10.
lf-white, Stans grandson wStan had been promising to bring Barry by because we all had that in common - Franks kids were haas half-black and my son was half-black. We all had that in common and we all really enjoyed it. We got a real kick out of reality.
Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama's half-sister, told the Associated Press recently that her grandfather had seen Mr Davis was a point of connection, a bridge if you will, to the larger African-American experience for my brother".
In his memoir, Mr Obama recounts how he visited Mr Davis on several occasions, apparently at junctures when he was grappling with racial issues, to seek his counsel. At one point in 1979 Mr Davis described university as an advanced degree in compromise that was designed to keep blacks in their place.
Mr Obama quoted him as saying: Leaving your race at the door. Leaving your people behind. Understand something, boy. Youre not going to college to get educated. Youre going there to get trained.
He added that theyll tank on your chain and let you know that you may be a well-trained, well-paid ******, but youre a ****** just the same.
It has also been established that Mr Davis, who divorced in 1970, was the author of a hard-core pornographic autobiography published in San Diego in 1968 by Greenleaf Classics under the pseudonym Bob Greene.
In a surviving portion of an autobiographical manuscript, Mr Greene confirms that he was the author of Sex Rebel: Black after a reader had noticed the similarities in style and phraseology between the pornographic work and his poetry.
I could not then truthfully deny that this book, which came out in 1968 as a Greenleaf Classic, was mine. In the introduction to Sex Rebel, Davis explains that although he has changed names and identities all incidents I have described have been taken from actual experiences.
He stated that under certain circumstances I am bisexual and that he was a voyeur and an exhibitionist who was occasionally mildly interested in sado-masochism, adding: I have often wished I had two penises to enjoy simultaneously the double but different sensations of oral and genital copulation.
The book, which closely tracks Mr Daviss life in Chicago and Hawaii and the fact that his first wife was black and his second white, describes in lurid detail a series of shockingly sordid sexual encounters, often involving group sex.
One chapter concerns the seduction by Mr Davis and his first wife of a 13-year-old girl called Anne. Mr Davis wrote that it was the girl who had suggested he had sex with her. Im not one to go in for Lolitas. Usually Id rather not bed a babe under 20.
But there are exceptions. I didnt want to disappoint the trusting child. At her still-impressionistic age, a rejection might be traumatic, could even cripple her sexually for life.
He then described how he and his wife would have sex with the girl. Anne came up many times the next several weeks, her aunt thinking she was in good hands. Actually she was. She obtained a course in practical sex from experienced and considerate practitioners rather than from ignorant insensitive neophytes .I think we did her a favour, although the pleasure was mutual.
On other occasions, Mr Davis would cruise in Hawaii parks looking for couples or female tourists to have sex with. He derived sexual gratification from bondage, simulated rape and being flogged and urinated on.
He boasted that the number of white babes interested in at least one meeting with a Negro male has been far more than I can handle and wished America were as civilised as, say, Scandinavia. He concluded: I regret none of my experiences or unusual appetites; for me they are normal.
According to Mrs Weatherly-Williams, Mr Davis lost touch with Mr Dunham some time in the 1980s. John Edgar Tidwell, who wrote the introduction to Davis's memoir and edited a collection of his work, said that there was no mention of Mr Dunham or Mr Obama in any of Mr Daviss papers.
He's a communist! G. W. Bush was a Liberal.
Me too, plus the Salvation Army.
Yes, to simply tell her she was too young, emotionally, physically, and legally, would have crushed her. Thirteen!? Libs and lefties can rationalize or jutsify anything.
O is a modern day “Manasseh.” This man knows no end to his wickedness. Look at what God Almighty did to Judah because of him. Will he not do the same thing to us?
Somehow, one never seems to encounter a large number of blacks who really believe that homosexuality equates to skin color in terms of civil rights. The churches were at the heart of “the Movement.”
It makes one wonder as to the legitimacy of these 'churches.' They appear to have little to do with Jesus or God, and much to do about massaging the egos of the 'ministers.'
IMO, the gays need to stop trying to infiltrate into groups in which they are not wanted. They have been out to destroy the boy scouts for a long time and just last year one of them took on eHarmony and won. They should start their own versions of what ever it is they want to do - amazingly enough they will be left alone.
What state wants a heavy concentration of perverts?
Oh, I know. Californicate.
