The RW have tried their best to smear the Girl Scouts this past year. No comments and all the OP is doing is spreading the meme, imo, board nanny-ish or not.

125. Seems obvious to me that the OP is promoting purchase of Girl Scout cookies

the language might be hilariously right wing, but any liberal ('scuse me, "librul") reads that and says, cool, I'm going to buy a bunch of cookies every chance I get this year!!

(clearly, the graphic is copied from a right-wing nutjob site. but the point is, we should know this so we know it's cool to buy GS cookies.)

129. Presenting this right wing chart as fact does not go very far to "each one teach one",

as there are many people that aren't liberals that come here searching for honest dialogue and facts. The OPer could have gotten the same reaction by the simple declaration that Girl Scout cookies were now on sale. No need to post a right wing chart from a conservative site.

177. Start with the American Life League and other Catholic groups.

I actually had an online argument with ALL's president Judie Brown several years ago about this very thing, when I laid out very specifically where cookie money goes. I even quoted her passages from GS training manuals that refuted every piece of bullshit she was spewing.

The result? Well, ever hear of the phrase, "Never argue with an idiot because people might not see the difference?"

These people and their sheeple will believe whatever they want, even if it is proven a million times over to be totally and absolutely false.

161. irony and sarcasm are lost on you.

that is a trait I find in many conservatives.
An inability to read beyond the literal meaning of the words they see.
Not saying you are one, just that you are not seeing, getting or understanding the "irony & mocking" that we do about RW meme's here.
But keep complaining and whining.

11. Just looking at the image... It is written in a highly biased manner.

I've got 3 girls and a boy.

I fund the Girl Scouts every year through the United Way and my eldest was a GS member.

My son was in the BS, I gave to them, and he didn't like it. I don't like the direction they have turned, that they are an extension of Mormonism, and have redirected my money to the Girl Scouts.

that these private organizations get to do what they want.

If it's ok for the private Boy Scouts to discriminate, why is it not ok for the private Girl Scouts to have their own policies?

I don't understand the attacks. Yes, it was probably made as an attack by conservatives but that doesn't mean that the things stated are actually bad. Kind of like how Repub candidates tend to run better ads for their opponents than the opponents themselves. "Joe Democrat was a union leader and supported the right of terrorists to a fair trial"... well gee thanks, that's a much better as FOR Joe Democrat than his own "Joe Democrat wants to reduce wasteful spending and cut taxes" ad!

Fighting a characterization of liberals as liberal only means you're ashamed of being liberal. It shouldn't be something to be ashamed of.

135. Well I will!! Article states 1/4 of GS are catholic- wonder if they will give in to the bishops??


1/4 is a lot of GS
and the group has already modified for catholics according to the article
I am wondering if they won't modify more due to religious demands

.......In other instances, the scouts have modified materials that drew complaints – for example, dropping some references to playwright Josefina Lopez because one of her plays, "Simply Maria," was viewed by critics as mocking the Catholic faith....
.......The inquiry coincides with a broader effort by the bishops to analyze church ties with outside groups. Rhoades' committee plans to consult with Girl Scouts leaders and with the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, which has been liaising with the Scouts for two years about various complaints.
The federation's executive director, Bob McCarty, praised the Girl Scouts for willingness to change some program content.
To the Girl Scouts, some of the attacks seem to be a form of guilt by association. Critics contend that Girl Scouts materials shouldn't contain links to groups such as Doctors without Borders, the Sierra Club and Oxfam because they support family planning or emergency contraception.
And although it's a secular organization, the Girl Scouts embrace partnerships with religious groups. Scouts can earn a "My Promise, My Faith" pin for activities linked to their religious beliefs.
..........

I don't think the leader moms will stand up to the bishops either - also from the link

.......One uneasy Catholic parent is Jody Geenen of West Bend, Wis., a troop leader for the past 14 years as her three daughters – now 18, 14 and 12 – became Girl Scouts.

She complains about some program materials adopted by the Girl Scouts in recent years. One example she gave: a patch honoring Hispanic labor organizer Dolores Huerta, whose shortcomings – in the eyes of some Catholics – include a 2007 award from Planned Parenthood.

Geenen hopes the Scouts will change their ways. "I love the Girl Scouts," she said. "But it can't remain the way it is."
..........

Their CEO currently stands firm -just hope the GS do not morph into Intolerant Girls

I'm pretty much buying from every Girl Scout I know!

Additionally, I'm in CA, but my family is back in NJ.
Got a message from my cousin's daughter.
She's selling cookies, of course, but if you are long-distance, or just trying to stay on a diet, you can donate money.
For every $4.00, a box of cookies will be sent to Operation Shoebox, to be sent to the troops.

Win-win all the way, as far as I'm concerned!

2) They don't support their girls going out into the world so they can become a statistic (as in teen pregnancy), which helps save taxpayers money and makes a smaller government (the last part to point out the irony of making girls have kids and then bitching about them going on public services).

112. People asking "Do you support this?" -- I do, 100%

I am pro-choice.
I support Planned Parenthood
I have no problem with "trans-genders", lesbians, or "progressive socialists"
I support "information-based sex education"

Go Girl Scouts, if this is accurate.

119. Signed: Rep. Bob Morris, (R)Fort Wayne

Origins: In February 2012, Indiana state representative Bob Morris sent the above-quoted letter to House Republicans to explain why he refused to add his name to a resolution celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts (a resolution which was passed unanimously by the rest of the Indiana House), maintaining that the Girl Scouts are a "radicalized organization" that promotes abortions and homosexuality and serves as a "tactical arm" of Planned Parenthood.

The man is, quite frankly, an ass.

Indiana should be proud. /sarcasm

140. This is complete Hoooey - Support your local Girl Scouts!

The RW hates the Girl Scouts because they are open to all girls and the organization does not promote one religion over another. Thank goodness there is a place like that for girls!

If you see Girl Scouts selling cookies, buy a box to support them or buy a box to donate to others (the girls know how to do that). Or you can just give them a few dollars to support their Troop.

Go Girls Scouts of the USA and Happy 100th! (1912-2012)

146. If some more "conservative" groups have breakaway Girl Scout troops...

... then they have no right to use the name Girl Scouts. Just as there are breakaway Boy Scout groups (Baden Powell Service Association comes to mind) the breakaway girl troops have to pick a new name. Girl Guides would be available for use in the USA.

On another note, some national scouting groups are now co-ed.

They obviously have their heads screwed on right! They believe in the real world and not some fantasy that promotes fear, hate and sex abuse. Girls will be girls and have their fun, no matter how many times you tell them that sex has consequences. They are acring responsible and deserve our support. You go, GIRLS!

169. My support of girl scouts just went up.

This is graphically presented in a way to scare right-wingers but it's a big fail on their part. They say words like 'abortion', 'sex education', 'feminist', 'gay and lesbian rights', 'planned parenthood', etc., as if they were bad things when in fact they are not. They are actually good things that make this a better world.

176. Oh, not this shit again!

I wish these assholes would just stop.

If you don't want to buy the fucking cookies, then DON'T BUY THE FUCKING COOKIES! More for the rest of us.

Sorry to shout, but this bullshit gets old real fast.

By the way...most of the proceeds go to fund stuff like Girl Scout camps and other council programs that have NOTHING to do with social engineering. Troops actually fund trips with the proceeds they get from their sales.

Christ. I wish these people would get a fucking life, or at least drop out of society and let the rest of us alone to enjoy our Thin Mints.

One kernel of truth in the otherwise swill above: Girl Scouts have always been welcoming of gay, bisexual, and transgendered members, always as far as I can tell, and I was involved as an adult in GS for years. Compare that to other organizations like the Boy Scouts.

178. dammit!!

I wasn't going to buy any, but now I have to. hmmmph.

I was a Girl Scout. Sold the most cookies in my entire district one year. Back when we sold the boxes, not took orders. (Of course they were 50 cents a box back then, larger cookies & larger boxes!)

It's not that I didn't want to support the Girl Scouts, but I don't need to eat a box of cookies, & my son is prediabetic so I keep those types of temptations to as bare a minimum as possible.

But dammitall, if the freaking freaks are going to try and denigrate the Girl Scouts - which by all counts is infinitely superior to the Boy Scouts (yes I said that) - then I reckon I'll just have to take one for the team. (Besides, eating a whole box of Thin Mints isn't that much of a sacrifice, I suppose! )

your daughter, granddaughter, or favorite niece is selling them and the girl selling the most boxes wins a new bike or something, You posted this because you are shrewd and know that this right-wing piece of trash happens to be the best GS cooky sales tool, ever. Send her around to my place and I will buy 3 boxes of Trefoils and 2 of mints.

I want you to know these assholes said ANNE FRANK was too radical to be referenced in a Girl Scout book.

Think about that for a minute.

ANNE FRANK.

Unfortunately, they won that battle. One of the few decisions GSUSA's made that I'm still angry over.

Otherwise, just a reminder--it's Cookie Sale time! Enjoy!!!
