“Go Woke, Go Broke: __________________” … Hmm, I wonder how times I could type that in the future?
“Facing a wave of lawsuits over allegations of sexual abuse, the Boy Scouts of America has filed for bankruptcy.”
I didn’t even know that the Boy Scouts were an actual business. I thought it was just a bunch of volunteers who got together. If someone did something wrong, I think morally you are supposed to sue that person, not the organization. The Democrats didn’t file for bankruptcy after Bill Clinton.
“The Boy Scouts of America cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to harm innocent children.” — Roger Mosby, the president and CEO of the Boy Scouts of America
Yeah, well, since American culture worships guys like Harvey Milk who preyed on boys at least as young as 16. Perhaps opening up the Boy Scouts to such scoutmasters would be a bad idea. Perhaps putting hormone-surging puberty-age boys and girls together in the same group also isn’t a great idea. It looks like even the term “scoutmaster” has been banned. Apparently the words aren’t sexist as much as racist.
“…the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has left the Boy Scouts struggling to find ways to remain relevant. Last year, it began accepting girls into its namesake program, setting off a recruitment war with the Girl Scouts.”
The Left just wants to destroy all historical institutions that are good and believe in faith and rural America. The Left could have tried to turn the Boy Scouts into more of an outdoor environmental organization, but I guess there was way too much history with faith, among other things.
Republicans get woke too, I guess. Two of the last presidents of the Boy Scouts of America have been Rex Tillerson (2012–2014) and Robert Gates (2014–2016).
Woke? I actually hate that term. The first I heard that word used in that way in public, in a rather joking way, was in the middle of 2017. That was less than three years ago. The world moves fast.Published in
