Skip to comments.Girl Scouts: The Awful Truth
Posted on 03/02/2012 11:24:00 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
Indiana freshman Representative Bob Morris is learning the hard way that the Girl Scouts of America is to the progressive agenda as the Komen Foundation is to Planned Parenthood, and the Catholic church (or so Obama presumed) is to an Obama abortion mandate. What is -- in one word -- cover.
....Full disclosure: I am as endeared to the doe-eyed keepers of the Thin Mint for which I would sell my soul most days as anyone. I cringed when I heard Morris's original remarks. It was just the crazy talk the left feeds upon -- and the right, consequently, takes such pains to avoid. These were the Girl Scouts of America he was talking about, for heaven's sake. Like millions of other scouts and now a parent to scouts, I've experienced only the best Girl Scouts has to offer -- lessons in leadership, character, entrepreneurship, Christian ideals, service to others, and macramé -- under the tutelage of leaders with no pretense or agenda. Frankly, what Morris was suggesting was so far-fetched that it was almost as unthinkable as suggesting that Republicans don't always have conservatives' best interest at heart; the church has been infiltrated with agents of social justice; our own prestigious military has in its ranks enemy Islamists and apologists; the public education system to which we entrust our children is full of radical, anti-American educators; the mainstream media -- the fourth estate -- is a virtual arm of one political party; women's reproductive health includes the right to practice infanticide; and Sesame Street Muppets endear children to government. What's next -- asking us to believe that the man elected to keep the American dream alive could govern antithetically to individual liberty? Shall we see if James O'Keefe can fit into a brownie uniform?....

When Girl Scouts didn’t support the Boy Scouts in their ban on pervert Scoutmasters, they “said” everything that needed to be said (without saying anything).
It is a well done piece that describes the connections of those at the top. There is more to be said and read. This article does that and more. As with other groups, the rank and file are working and sending money to people and causes they despise w/o knowing it.
The America-hating Democrats have fully appropriated the scumbag ‘Girl Scouts of America’ for their own sick political agenda. Oh well. I do not buy their cookies anymore. They will no longer get support from me, thank you.
Great article. I knew the GS had been hijacked by the lefties but I didn’t have the hard evidence.
The American Heritage Girls organization is the new girl scouts.
Anybody who trusts these institutions to instill values in their children is crazy (and negligent); while these groups were set up in the past to prepare kids for war, they can’t even clarify what they’d fight for anymore (Bolshevism? “Gay marriage”? Removing “God” from the public sector?).
Take your children camping yourself; it is a lot of fun, and there is no weirdness. It’s an American thing...
Anna Marie Chavez, Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts of the USA. Her bio is chock full of the usual diversity and affirmative action nonsense one would expect from another one of those "wise Latinas".
I’d think the GS to be in this much deeper than Komen is. Komen is feeding a minority of its take to PP, an amount which is a vast minority of PP’s take. The GS are neck deep in the stuff. Boy Scouts would be too ethical for them.
The Girl Scout Motto: “Be Prepared” now can be “Pay For My Birthcontrol.”
They could have saved the Boy Scouts a lot of trouble by asking the pervert scoutmasters to be sent to them (duck’n & runn’n)
Short and instructive.
Quoted from your link:
A study in February by sociology researcher Kathleen Denny in the journal Gender & Society found gender stereotypes in a Girl Scouts manual, suggesting the program was ready for an overhaul.
Holy Moley. gender stereotypes?? You mean girl things in the Girl Scouts???
Why don’t these feminazis EVER fight Macy’s or Chanel or Louboutin for selling and designing GENDER STEREOTYPED CLOTHING????
Or “Be Prepared For An Abortion”
Was Sandra Fluke a girl scout?
I’m sure Sandra Fluke would approve of “Do A Good Trick Daily”
Yep, and it doesn't get much sicker than that.
Thank you, Democrat scum.
Possibly a Boy Scout. Definitely a We-Blow.
Yes, they had their meetings down at the “Y”.
thanks for this post. it underscores our basic failure (as conservatives) to defend America from the moral corruption within. all of our current problems stem from our moral failures. all the political sound and fury really amounts to nothing if this foundation cannot be strengthened and soon.
but the continued existence of these organizations founded on our previous greatness also gives me some hope for our recovery. i feel there is a strong remnant of our founding culture embedded in the rank and file of our now mostly corrupt cultural institutions. it could be that this remnant’s resistance coupled God’s grace will lead to our ultimate salvation as a nation. how it may come, God knows, but i pray Jesus to provide the lamp.
