Endorsement of Wendy Davis Triggers National Boycott of Girl Scout Cookies
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | January 29, 2014 | Austin Ruse

Posted on 01/29/2014 6:43:18 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

A part of every Thin Mint and Do-Si-Do, every Samoa and Savannah Smile goes to support abortion advocacy. So say John Pisciotta, who runs a tiny pro-life organization in Waco, Texas, and a dozen national pro-life organizations he has convinced to join him in a national boycott of Girl Scout cookies that will be announced in Texas tomorrow.

A few weeks ago, the Girl Scouts designated Wendy Davis as an “incredible woman” who deserved to be on the list of 2013 “Women of the Year.” Only a month earlier, the organization promoted Kathleen Sebelius as a woman of “courage” on its Facebook page.

Davis is not known for much more than exaggerating her life story and for her filibuster of a pro-life bill in the Texas legislature. Her critics point out that the bill she filibustered was one that limited abortions after viability....

Hey, I thought they stopped calling them Samoas because it’s racist or something? When I last looked at an order sheet they were named something else.

I gave my wife a chastising about buying GS cookies. She had not heard about them naming abortion Barbie as one of their heroes.

The descent of the girl scouts into immorality is now complete. Lying is now their core value. The boy scouts aren’t far behind.

I saw a box of this year’s Girl Scout cookies. It is miniscule. I asked the person who bought it how much it cost. $4. The box has shrunk to the point where it is comical. I wish I had known about the Scouts’ support for Abortion Barbie. I would have mentioned it.

What are you talking about. The BSA has already drunk the koolaid.

There's a new Christian scouts group though, and hopefully one will spring up for girls.

There is a supermarket near me which sells Famous Amos cookies at a reduced price. The first bag I bought had “not for sale outside Canada” in small print.

The last bag simply said “made in Battle Creek Michigan.”

Very little of that $4 goes to the girls or the cookie makers. Much more goes to the slaughter of unborn babies.

The boy scouts in a decade will be just like the girl scouts. They took a big sick step by letting fags in. Next fags will infiltrate leadership. Then religion won’t be required, and soon after religion and morals will be banned.

Yes, the Girl Scouts organization has been hard left for some time. This is the path the Boy Scouts have now embarked on as well.

Yep...I just had a mom walking her daughter around last Sat. trying to sell them at my home and I let her know that because of Girl Scout affiliation with Planned Parenthood I no longer would buy them. It took her off guard and she obviously did not follow politics but its now time to SPEAK OUT.

That is the inevitable result after decades of unconditional and increasingly out of control public funding. For the Christian scouts thing to work, it was to be thoroughly dependent on private funding, no gov’t money of any kind. The members of the Girl and Boy Scouts that did not want to support leftist agendas wholesale at the hardest time fighting back because their organization was using too much public funding.

Davis was designated an outstanding woman, eligible to be on
the list of 2013 “Women of the Year.” BUT they’re not giving HER or her campaign money. They are, however, using cookie sales proceeds to pay GSA personnel to promote that agenda.

Only about twenty cents per box goes to the troop. I may just write a check for what I’d pay for cookies as a donation to a local church-sponsored troop. Don’t want the cookies.

GSA is a cynical marketing tool and distribution network that verges on slavery for insanely overpriced cookies. It never was about the girls. Everything they do is focused on cookie sales.

When I see a couple of kids haewking candy bars outside a store, usually for J.F.L. or Little League. I tell them, I'll buy you each a candy bar with your mother's permission, mother or some other adult is usually standing nearby.

I don't want the candy, kids are happy, Little League or whatever gains , everybody happy, happy, happy.

That’s exactly what I’m thinking. Simply saying “No, thank you” doesn’t make a point. I will tell the adults “I will not support any organization that supports Wendy Davis and abortion.” Let them explain it to their daughters.

Who or what is ‘abortion Barbie’? A real person? A doll? I was a GS until I graduated from high school and support them via cookie sales every year.

If you can show me where the GSA supports Planned Parenthood and explain what ‘abortion Barbie’ is, I will no longer deal with them.

I sorta feel the same way... on the other hand, the girl selling them is young and sweet. Her family clearly doesn’t endorse Abortion Wendy. I think there is a girl scout alternative, can’t think of it on half a cup of coffee though. I don’t think I have the heart to say those kinds of things to the girls, but their parents are usually there, maybe speak to them. These girls are being used by the left, mostly unwittingly. So what do we offer, a chastisement to a young girl, or an alternative?
