Boycott Abortion Cookies

Posted on | February 5, 2014 | 45 Comments

Three years ago, I remarked that it had become “increasingly obvious that the national Girl Scouts organization has been hijacked by radical feminists.” You may remember the occasion:

The World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides hosted a no-adults-welcome panel at the United Nations where Planned Parenthood was allowed to distribute a brochure entitled “Healthy, Happy and Hot.” . . .
The brochure claims, “Many people think sex is just about vaginal or anal intercourse … But, there are lots of different ways to have sex and lots of different types of sex. There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!”

That was March 2011, and the iron grip of radicalism has not been relaxed. Feminists would rather destroy the Girl Scouts as an institution than to abandon their ideological agenda.

Pro-lifers are now officially boycotting Girl Scout cookies:

“The Girl Scouts still proclaim to be honest and courageous, while denying their continual collaboration with the nation’s largest and undeniably dishonest abortion chain,” [Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation] said. “Abortion doesn’t make the world a better place, unless you agree with the deeply racist and elitist pseudoscience of eugenics — the foundation of Planned Parenthood.”
Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League commented, “As the father of six girls, I’m extremely disappointed by the Girl Scouts’ increasing collaboration with Planned Parenthood, an organization that aborts over 150,000 unborn baby girls every year.”
Similarly, Jim Sedlak of the American Life League told Breitbart News, “Through their continued support of the Culture of Death, the Girl Scouts have betrayed their heritage and their future. There is nobody who should purchase Girl Scout cookies to fund this group.”

The Associated Press is clueless about the meaning and significance of the boycott. Get the full background at LifeNews.com.

UPDATE: It is an axiom of modern media that no controversy is complete until Amanda Marcotte makes a fool of herself about it:

Baseless Christian-Right Attacks on the
Girl Scouts (Yes, the Girl Scouts) Go Big Time

What is interesting (but typical) is that Marcotte does not actually rebut the “attacks” she calls “baseless.” That is to say, Marcotte is unable to refute the truth, which is that the Girl Scouts are now committed, as a matter of organizational policy, to a pro-abortion, pro-gay agenda. Instead, Marcotte is just arm-waving: “Look, a Christian preacher said something mean about liberals! The boycott was discussed by Megyn Kelly on Fox News! Extremists! Eek! Eek!”

You realize, of course, that if the Girl Scouts had done something in line with American patriotism, free-market economics or traditional Judeo-Christian moral values, Marcotte would be denouncing the Girl Scouts. The fact that Marcotte is instead defending the Girl Scouts is therefore sufficient proof that the organization has been captured by the radical anti-American Left.

    I can’t. I already was boycotting them over the lesbian troop leaders.

    I’m a million times more likely to send my kids to Catholic school than enter them into the Girl Scouts. What a rancid organization.

  • Reggie1971

    Just another example of how low the cultural left will stoop to promote their agenda. They have to recruit girl scouts to help them engage in political shenanigans. Fiends.

    Abortion. It’s for the children!

  • rodander

    We ought to support our local troops — those are good girls, with leaders that we know are solid.
    I donated cash to one of the local troops located outside of the grocery store the other day. They said that they would donate the box of cookies that my cash bought to the troops (which is good, but which probably means that the national organization would get its cut from the sales of the cookies).
    Can any troop leaders or anyone else in the know confirm this?

  • JeffS

    I’ve been boycotting the GSA for several years, and that’s a damn shame. Time was, I looked forward to my Girl Scout cookies.

    Does Amanda Marcotte send her daughters to Girl Scouts…oh wait she does not have any children.

  • robertstacymccain

    Am I the only one who noticed that Amanda Marcotte has never denied the widespread suspicion that she eats dead babies?

  • joethefatman

    I haven’t let the kids or wife bring any inside my house for years. It helps that I never liked them in the first place.

  • ConstantineX1

    The young womyn scouts have been dominated by the radical baby killing femiNazis since the 70s. Unfortunately the Boy Scouts are now co opted to the gay pedophile movement.

    It seems an iron law of organizational life in the philanthropic sector that the best lack all conviction and the worst are filled with passionate intensity. There are people on the national board of the Girl Scouts who let pushy and malicious broads to do this. They all need to be named and shamed.

    Okay, this is totally O/T, but I just noticed something the other day. If one of you video mashup types can get ahold of the proper clips, I swear that Mitch McConnell sounds almost exactly the same as the character Frito in the Mike Judge movie Idiocracy.

    It’s uncanny. And it would make a hilarious vid to see them re-mixed.

    Coincidence? There are no coincidences!

  • JeffS

    GSA cookies are (were?) a welcome delivery for troops overseas. They certainly were popular where I was, back in ’05.

  • RKae

    “Abortion Cookies!” Now THERE’S a product! Let’s see the Girl Scouts sell “Abortion Cookies!” If they’re so damned proud of abortions (…er… um… sorry; “right to choose”), then why not celebrate that “harmless procedure” with yummy treats!

  • RKae

    And, furthermore… I want FREE GIRL SCOUT COOKIES ON DEMAND AND WITHOUT APOLOGY! It’s MY BODY and no one can dictate – OR RESTRICT WITH ARBITRARY PRICING – what I put into my body!

  • http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/ Evi L. Bloggerlady

    There is a huge difference between the local troops and the national organization.

    I have known cub scouts selling popcorn to have been verbally haranged by outraged lesbian womyn. So you have eight year olds with their parents getting yelled at by angry lesbians.

    And they call the BSA the H8ers?

  • DaveO

    It is a compliment to the Boy and Girl Scouts that the Prognazis have followed Gramsci’s directive to take over every positive cultural institution. But don’t worry about the Girl Scouts being the training academy for future lesbian terrorists. The communist version, the Little Octobrists, Young Pioneers, and Komsomol provided sexual fodder for the Communist leaders – those whom the Prognazis emulate and wish to inherit. Welcome to Socialist Sexual Slavery, now in cute berets and sashes.

    It’s almost unfair to call it a boycott because of one overriding truth concerning girl scout cookies

    They just don’t taste very good.

    It’s easy to boycott cookies that stink

    This may give you a bit more insight on what is ‘really’ happening in the Girl Scouts. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/01/08/Girl-Scouts-Replace-Homopunker-with-Abortion-Advocate

  • Nicole Killebrew

    Many families and troop leaders have exited the Girl Scouts forever and have joined excellent alternative organizations such as The American Heritage Girls, Little Flowers ect. They were no longer willing to support, in name or finances, GSUSA and local Girl Scout councils that were willing to promote ideologies that go against most families values. This one page article gives a bit of insight to what is ‘really’ happening in the Girl Scouts: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/01/08/Girl-Scouts-Replace-Homopunker-with-Abortion-Advocate

  • Nicole Killebrew

    Thank you for making a stand for over 2 Million unsuspecting girls. There are Huge and Numerous reasons families and troop leaders have left the Girl Scouts.

    The Masterminds of the Left understand very well the truth behind that old Jesuit [patriarchal] saying: ‘Give me a child until he is seven and I will give you the man’.

  • librarygryffon

    Sorry, Nanny Bloomberg disagrees with you.

  • librarygryffon

    I’ve had to stop eating GS cookies since wheat based products give me migraines. However… WalMart has a store brand cookie that my family feels is a very good substitute for Samoas. I haven’t tried one (those pesky headaches) but they certainly look exactly like Samoas, and cost under $2 for a box of 15 (GS Samoas last I checked were $4 or more for a box of 14 or 15).

  • CDville

    The local troop keeps 57 cents from every box of cookies, and the rest goes to the council and upstream. If you just donate a dollar to that local troop, the girls have almost twice as much money for their s’mores. We dropped our GS affiliation more than twenty years ago, after the Dallas council shared the girls’ addresses with Planned Parenthood unapologetically. “We would never do anything to harm the girls!”

    One bit of advice: Just say “no thank you.”

    The GSA is reporting rabid republicans and right to lifers are abusing girl scouts and yelling at them about abortion. I am sure these are mostly lies (and I know the left does that in fact to the BSA), but FYI. What will get the GSA’s attention, if anything, is less sales. So don’t give the left ammunition to bolster sales by claiming the Girl Scouts are persecuted. This about not giving money to them.

    I don’t even respond with anything more than a look of disgust when I get approached. I haven’t had to utter a word to the little cookie hawkers in years.

  • rodander

    Thanks, CDville — I’ll do that in the future. I’m in Dallas, so it is good to know that the Dallas council itself is as bad an actor as national.
