Its Not Your Mother's Girl Scouts Anymore

Think the Girls Scouts of the USA is a good, safe place to park your young daughter to keep her out of the insanity of the current culture war? Think again while you take a look at what the daughters of our nation are now going to be exposed to in this organization (bolds are mine):

In "Amaze: The Twists and Turns of Getting Along," girls from the sixth to the eighth grade will read a quote from Buddha and be encouraged to explore mazes and stone or dirt labyrinths – symbols rooted in pagan mythology and popular within the New Age movement as meditation tools.

They will be briefly introduced to Polish poet Anna Swir, known for her feminist and erotic poems, and Jane Addams, an ardent feminist and pacifist who received a Nobel Peace Prize.

The text features a quote from Harriet Woods, former president of the National Women's Political Caucus – a bipartisan group that endorses pro-abortion female candidates who run for public office.

As your daughter gets into higher age groups, particularly her junior and senior high school years, it gets even worse, as some of the "roll models" they will be introduced to are:

Elizabeth Gurley Flynn: labor leader, activist, feminist, founding member of ACLU and chairwoman of the American Communist Party

Luisa Moreno: labor leader, social activist, member of the Communist Party, married to delegate of the Socialist Party of America

Simone de Beauvoir: existentialist, French author of feminist books including "The Second Sex," key player in France's women's liberation movement

Rigoberta Menchu: Guatemalan activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner who joined Marxist guerrilla movement

You can read Chelsea Shilling's excellent WorldNetDaily article here.

It looks to me as though the Godly values that helped to make America great are slowing being removed from this once great organization.

The Girl Scouts should be the one place our nation's daughter's are safe from indoctrination by the freedom-hating Marxist left.

God knows they get enough of that from attending government schools.

I have to admit that I love some of the cookies the Girl Scouts sell, but I will have to seriously re-evaluate whether or not I will be buying them in the future.

It made me chuckle to think how the Girl Scouts becoming a front for the communist/marxist takeover must have got your Irish up to the point where you are actually considering giving up Girl Scout Cookies!!! Don't do it, Dave.

LOL-I know. I am sooooooooooooo torn over this.

I have two nieces in the Girl Scouts, and every year I look forward to the cookies coming out.

Seriously, it's just another part of the America we knew that may be gone forever. The Girl Scouts have been reshaped into someone else's view of what the world should be.

On the cookie side of it, may I recommend a new treat? Ghirardelli Ultimate Fudge Brownies as a substitute. Either that or some Keebler cookie? Elves are really magical! And they live in trees. How green is that?

Peace, Love, Dope!

I read Shilling's article last night and almost cried. There is a definite push to subvert our children.

"The Girl Scouts have been reshaped into someone else's view of what the world should be."

Correct you are.

As for the Ghirardelli Ultimate Fudge Brownies, I will be sure to add them to my list. :-)

I know it appears rathire dire, but we "real" Americans may not be quite as "finished" as some might think.

I promise you, we aren't finished yet.

You guys are totally finished. Me and my godless, nihilist brethren will morally corrupt your daughters, eat all of their Thin Mints and then sacrifice them to Lord Obama. Bwahahaha!
