Another storied American institution, the Boy Scouts of America, looks as if it may be set to declare bankruptcy before the year’s end, presenting serious challenges to the future of the national organization.
The Boy Scouts began as a civic endeavor to instill the values of resiliency, self-dependence, and teamwork in America’s young men all the way back in 1910.
Now, the organization seems to have forgotten many of the principles its original founders sought to advance in society- beginning to resemble just another organ of cultural progressivism in America.
The Boy Scouts of America, or BSA, began to alienate many of the generational patrons and participants in the organization when it embraced radical changes to its mission with the hopes of pleasing coastal elite progressives and liberals. The final straw for many came when the Scouts announced they’d become a gender-inclusive organization, turning their back on their original vision of being a young men’s organization to cater to both boys and girls. The female equivalent of the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, were less than happy with the organization’s decision, and are in ongoing litigation over a proposed name change of the Boy Scouts to merely ‘Scouts.’
Official membership of the BSA had plummeted when it ceased to be a young men’s organization. The group recently hired bankruptcy lawyers to chart a path forward.
Changes to the Boy Scouts led to one of oldest supporters, the Mormon Church, severing its longtime relationship with the organization. The LDS (or Mormon) Church had objected when the Scouts decided to allow openly gay adult men to serve in leadership roles within the organization, and it had seemed making the Scouts co-ed was the final straw.
The Scouts had also been troubled by a series of child abuse lawsuits dating back decades, which in some respects resembled the epidemic of pedophilic abuse seen throughout the Catholic Church. Court rulings in favor of abuse victims may have played a part in making the organization’s finances untenable, and declaring bankruptcy would lift the many of the financial obligations incurred from abuse lawsuits.
Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order
Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.
According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.
The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.
Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.
The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.
Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.
As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
