Skip to comments.The Atlantic: Kill Boy Scouts Like Rabid Dogs
Posted on 08/21/2012 10:59:57 AM PDT by Nachum
Remember how the far left in America has said since the rise of the Tea Party that the right is awash in "violent rhetoric"? What about the proposition to kill the Boy Scouts like one would kill a rabid dog? That is what a columnist for The Atlantic has implied.
James Hamblin, the magazine's health editor, proclaimed his desire to kill Boy Scouts based on his distaste for their recently re-affirmed policy of refusing to admit openly gay members. Hamblin feels justified in using violent, even hateful rhetoric to attack the Boy Scouts merely because he disagrees with them.
Boy Scouts is an organization that was and is so close to being great. Remember when they had to put Old Yeller down because he got rabies? It's not like he was a bad dog, but he got a brain infection and he tried to eat Travis
Apparently the First Amendment only applies if you agree with gays?
It should be noted that Hamblin posted his desire to kill Boy Scouts the day after another gay activist tried to do just that, kill people with whom he disagrees. Hamblin posted his hate-mongering screed the day after a gay activist entered the Washington DC headquarters of the Family Research Council intent on mass murder.
Hamblin next went on a hyperbolic trip of accusations that the Scout's policy will "cause."

I keep looking up for the big asteroid.
BSA is about building character and integrity amongst young men, not to teach them that homosexuality is a good thing. I'd imagine the BSA would look poorly upon a scout who wanted to openly discuss the mechanics of his heterosexual desires.
The fact that those on the left can't see that is disgusting.
Remember, Ernest Rohme and the Brown Shirts were Hitler Gay Storm Troopers...
My only consolation is the knowledge that when the Terrors starts, we are far more heavily armed than they.
The BSA will keep fighting this for as long as there are parents and Scouters determined to keep queers away from impressionable young men whose sole purpose in Scouting is to learn and grow.
Sex, perversion, etc. have no place in the organization.
Scout ping to SandRat
Homo agenda ping to wagglebee
This sounds like inciting murder.
The ‘tolerant’ Left strikes again.
You know, some day we may have to take these idiots seriously.
Seems to me this Hamblin just proved that the GBLT crowd constitutes a HATE GROUP ~ and not only that a VIOLENT HATE GROUP
Time for a new merit badge...
...the Glock merit badge.
This is not just one person's opinion. The Left hates BSA and the boys who participate in BSA.
If Obama wins reelection I fully expect him to immediately attack BSA’s ability to operate:
- Ban from US military bases
- Ban BSA from conducting activities in federal parks or on federal land
- Ban US military forces from participating in/supporting BSA
One of the kids just yesterday was telling me how close he’s getting to making Eagle Scout. He’s so proud, and I told him how proud I am of him.
For God and Country....
The muslim in the white hut told them to get in your faces .
That’s exactly what they are doing .
Number one enemy right now is fundamental Christians (Born again Christians ) this will soon change . This is how it started in Nazi Germany .
I never imagined I would live to see the day that I would see this starting to repeat in my own country of all places .
It’s going to get ugly
Of course, it’s not a hate crime if the left commits it.
What’s next? Protesting the Boy Scouts for not admitting Girls?
The man who wrote this should be promptly arrested.
Often, lengthwise, and repeatedly.
The number of letters from Scouts returning their Eagle and resigning from Scouting pale in comparison with the number of Scouts who would resign if BSA decided to embrace homosexuality the way the activists want.
And the Girls Scouts should have heterosexual male scout leaders too. Fair is fair.
The left gleefully engages in the age-old sport of Christian Bashing, taking their rhetoric closer and closer to the realm of actual physical persecution. They fail to realize, however, that unlike the days of Roman persecution, we’re armed to the teeth this time.
The Boy Scouts of America doesn’t want the liability of some pedophile getting into a position where he can prey on Scouts. When I went to camp with my son, they told me I could not be the only adult in camp if there were kids present, there had to be two adults at all times. That’s how concerned they are.
Why not just castrate all the queers and end the national obsession with perverted sex?
We’re not only armed to the teeth. We are also not willing to turn the other cheek. And many of us are fed up with being denigrated and attacked for being Christians, whether verbally, politically or ideologically.... by Godless, soul-less leftists.
To paraphrase Billy Graham:
If God doesn't punish America, he owes Sodom an apology.
“Any refusal by society to deny these predators, safe hunting grounds for unwitting victims, or endorse their behavior, is being attacked as hate.”
ok, too many negatives....should have written:
Any refusal by society to provide these predators, safe hunting grounds for unwitting victims, or endorse their behavior, is being attacked as hate.
There’s my Buck Knife Mr. Hamlin. Make your move. Troop 606.
The Atlantic? Just a bunch of MFAs writing to each other. And I don’t mean master of fine arts.
And remember what happened to Roehm.
James Hamblin, why don't you start 'The NAMBLA SCOUTS'? please leave the Boy Scouts alone. I'm glad that unlike the 'Lesbian and TG Scouts' (aka the Girls Scouts), the BSA is fighting the liberal attempts to get GAYS into it.
Do you know that Homicide is ILLEGAL? Or do you think that because you are a NUTCASE you can kill people who do not agree with you??
Matter of fact, Jimbo, why don't you start the NAMBLA SCOUTS in either Iran, Cuba or North Korea?? If successful, DO NOT bring it here!!
That what ever it is would be a great scout master for an all gay troop!
Save a Boy Scout, kill a Hamblin.
it was that way when I was a scout in the 60’-70’s two or more fathers at all time in camp or hiking
Ditto for me in 50s & 60s. Eagle Scout, Class of 1963.
Typical liberal solution. If you don’t want somebody or like somebody, just kill them.
Hitler’s SA was to a large degree murderous homosexuals.
After they served their initial purpose, there was a “cleanup”.
When the 1st Amendment was written, duels were still legal. If the faggots don't like how everyone else utilizes their 1st Amendment rights; if the queers want to threaten children.......well, let's see how they like 2nd Amendment rights.
Conservatives must be doing something right.....homos are threatening Boy Scouts and the New Black Welfare Party is threatening to put their boots on whitey's neck. So many people threatening to kill us; if only I were this popular in High School.
made it as far as Star Scout.. love the Eagle Courts they were so cool
...the Glock merit badge
Rifle Shooting Merit Badge
Shotgun Shooting Merit Badge
Archery Merit Badge
One of my Eagles held the state skeet shooting championship.
Hamblin next went on a hyperbolic trip of accusations that the Scout's policy will "cause." Perpetuating a culture where gay teenagers -- who are already commonly battling notions of inferiority and self-hatred -- can be openly and decidedly told they aren't welcome among a preeminent organization that purports to represent and define a standard of behavioral ideals, is dangerous.
So this Hamblin is saying that an organization that purports to represent and define a standard of behavioral ideals should not represent and define a standard of behavioral ideals. The left's idea of "logic" is laughable.
The irony is the left, gay left, any left would FIGHT for THEIR right to deny entry (pardon the pun) to their club or organization to anyone that was straight.
“One of my Eagles held the state skeet shooting championship.”
I’m glad the Scouts still teach “defensive” skills. I sure enjoyed & appreciated my time with BSA.
