Boy Scouts of America Officially Caves to the Woke Agenda

As of this week, the Boy Scouts of America will be officially changing their name to “Scouting America” in an effort to rebrand and embrace inclusivity. Yet there are a multitude of other faults within the organization beyond just this recent name change.


“The Boy Scouts of America today announced that it will rebrand to Scouting America, reflecting the organization’s ongoing commitment to welcome every youth and family in America to experience the benefits of Scouting.” 


This was the official statement from the organization regarding the reasoning behind the name change. One would think there would be a simple first step in being able to join the Boy Scouts, namely, being a boy, but radical inclusivity has seeped deep into the psyche of American culture and has officially plagued an organization that has been a staple of male youth for over 100 years. 


‘Scouting America’s’ website expands upon other parts of the woke agenda that the organization has decided to champion. It is clear that they wholeheartedly embrace the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) philosophy, which is featured on their ‘About’ page. They have even created a new patch called “Citizenship in Society,” which is earned after a Scout researches DEI topics.


Boy Scouts of America also has five different internal organizations for employees focused on diversity. The first is called APACK, which is focused on Asian Pacific employees and celebrating Asian Pacific holidays. The next is BSA View, which is their LGBTQ support group. RISE is the group for women in the workforce. LISTOS is for Hispanics and The Village is for Black members. They are clearly ultra-focused on meeting diversity standards rather than prioritizing training their employees to teach the fundamentals of scouting.


The trickle-down effect of woke ideology is apparent across the whole organization. The leaders have instigated the change in culture within the Scouts and the resulting degradation of the group as a whole. The Boy Scouts are not an organization any Texas families should be eager to join. Rather than instilling good citizenship, natural stewardship, and basic survival skills, they have chosen to become an instrument of indoctrination. In Texas, we do not believe DEI should be pushed on families. It is actually extremely harmful to everyday Texans when put into practice. If you were considering joining the Boy Scouts with your child, it may be time to reconsider.
