Skip to comments.RUSE: Say no to Girl Scout Cookies (more disgusting factoids on the Girl Scouts)
Posted on 01/17/2012 5:50:07 PM PST by prairiebreeze
The Girl Scouts have a cross-dresser in the front office.
Ten years ago, Girl Scouts media relations officer Joshua Ackley was frontman for the homopunk band the Dead Betties. In publicity shots, hes dressed in womens clothing, and in music videos, he appears to be naked and feigning masturbation. The video for Hellevator portrays a woman being strangled in an elevator shaft while Mr. Ackley flashes a menacing grin.
Today he issues press releases, posts news and views on the Girl Scouts blog, and tries to mollify moms who are concerned about Girl Scout ties with Planned Parenthood. In fact, it was Mr. Ackley who facilitated the Girl Scouts no adults allowed workshop at the United Nations - the workshop in which the Planned Parenthood sex brochure Healthy, Happy, and Hot was offered, although part of Mr. Ackleys job is to deny it.

i’ll check it out. thanx
Glad to see your post - I just googled the “alternatives” and Frontier Girls showed up as well as American Heritage Girls. I wouldn’t let one slim dime of my money go to the Girl Scouts any more...adults who let their daughters be part of this organization need to wake up and smell the coffee.
Some people seem almost proud of their stubborn unwillingness to cut off this insidious organization’s primary source of revenue.
I’m not buying any GS cookies.
I’m disappointed how many Freepers are in favor of supporting an organization that is committing itself to the destruction of young girls.
Guilelessly? As in “Healthy, Happy and Hot, a young person’s guide to their rights, sexuality and living with HIV?
When that’s being promoted to grade school and junior high girls, how long will they remain “guileless”?
If you are approached by the littlest girls (5 or 6 years old) it is best not to explain why you can’t buy the cookies. Just tell them you’re on a diet or something and offer a cash donation instead.
The older girls I would for sure tell them why you can’t buy the cookies. They need to hear the truth.
Yes, it's rather sickening to see that some so-called conservatives would put an over-priced treat over principle.
I won't tell the younger ones, however, I have printed out a recent WND column that covers some of the controversies, and includes a link to a video made by a Girl Scout explaining a lot of this in some detail.
I plan to speak to the mothers and hand them the article explaining to them why I am not buying.
I don't expect it to be easy, these are neighbors, but, unlike some Freepers upthread, I care about the future of these young girls and women.
The GIRLS are guileless. When they’re selling cookies out front of a store (the locus of a boycott) they are trying to build THEIR organization, not that of some impostor at HQ. If critical mass appears eminent, parents should remove their children from the organization and shake the dust off their feet.
You and others may find this very helpful. I recommend printing it out and keeping it handy to use during the course of being sold cookies.
I’m a peanut butter addict. Any suggestions as to the best PB cookie on the planet......good and peanut buttery without being sickening sweet?
I’m also a NUT nut. Walnuts, pecans, etc. What’s the best NUTTY cookie or cake?
Thanks for the tip! There is a $G close by my school.
There is always an adult with the girls when they sell cookies. Tell the adult why, not the girls.
The national HQ and the local organizations of linked, and the link cannot be broken without the local organization being punished by the national HQs.
You can rationalize all you want, but to support the local organization to support the national organization.
Listen to a wise Girl Scout on this issue:
That’s entirely the point....the organization HAS become corrupt. But many parents won’t know or won’t care to know.
If you want to donate to the troop, give them money as was suggested up thread. In the meantime, please don’t blithely purchase cookies from fresh-faced youngsters and kid yourself into thinking that you aren’t contributing to the efforts of Planned Parenthood, the United Nations, homosexual glamorization efforts and other liberal programs.
Dollar General...a well kept secret.
For $2-$3 at DG, I can easily put myself into a sugary, catatonic stupor. Circus peanuts, candy corn, peppermint/butterscotch drops.
Contact Girl Scouts headquarters:
Also meant to say...I don’t do GS cookies anymore, so there has to be a substitute.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Thanks for adding that link to the thread. Although the organization may be too far gone to hit them anywhere but the pocketbook.
