California Democrats Target Boy Scouts for Trying to Prevent Sexual Abuse


The left’s war against the Boy Scouts is heating up as government power is now being leveraged to crush the organization for attempting to protect little boys from being sexually abused.

It’s funny how Obama and Biden go touring around the country justifying a major breach of the Bill of Rights on the grounds that it’s worth it if it protects only one child.

Can anyone really claim with a straight face that keeping men who have same-sex fetish issues out of a position where they can supervise boys won’t stop a single case of sexual abuse?

But the left doesn’t care about children. It exploits them when handy and destroys them when not. If the left gets its way, how many boys will be sexually abused? How many will grow up and kill themselves or kill others… because they were raped in the name of political correctness.

Some cities have withdrawn free rent and other subsidies from the Boy Scouts over the years, but legislation introduced by state Sen. Ricardo Lara would make California the first state to target the Scouts for its anti-gay policy.

The Long Beach Democrat’s bill, SB 323, is scheduled for its first committee hearing on Wednesday.

The legislation, also known as the Youth Equality Act, would deny tax-exempt status to nonprofit youth groups that discriminate on the basis of gender identity, race, sexual orientation, nationality, religion or religious affiliation.

As a result, it would require those organizations to pay corporate taxes on donations, membership dues, camp fees and other sources of income, and to obtain sellers permits and pay sales taxes on food, beverages and homemade items sold at fundraisers. Because all tax returns are private in California, supporters do not know how big a tax hit the Boy Scouts would take if the proposal passes.

Churches that sponsor Boy Scouts troops would not lose their underlying tax-exempt status, but an array of nonprofits, ranging from the Young Men’s Christian Association and Pop Warner football to the American Youth Soccer Association and 4-H clubs would have their tax returns and membership policies scrutinized by the state Franchise Tax Board, according to an analysis by the Senate Governance and Finance Committee.

This insanity would reach beyond the Boy Scouts and hit any number of non-profits that are religiously-based or gender-based. But they’re just more collateral damage in the left’s war against the family.

    Given the subject-matter of the article, was the Norman Rockwell painting the best choice to illustrate the commentary? Or am I being over-sensitive?

    Islamic non-profit “Community centre” organisations discriminate on the basis of race, sexual orientation and religion – no Jews (apes and pigs), no same-sex couples (to be thrown from high buildings), muslims only – so the proposed legislation would deny them tax-exempt status.
    U.S. and British forces in Afghanistan have been instructed not to raise objection to how Afghan truck drivers have a boy companion, a “tea-boy”, like the one who murdered the U.S. soldier earlier. Sharia law has no age of consent.

    The attack is against America and the moral fiber of our young men, being a moral person
    and having religious affiliation that is Judeo-Christian is the leftist target and it never stops.
    The problem is that they have been allowed to push to far, time to shut the left down, they
    are past being a National threat, they are degenerates trying to make everyone like them.

    The obvious sodomite sellout politicians of the Democrat (the coalition supporting sodomy, abortion and socialism) party need to be held up to 24/7/365 scrutiny on their way to jail.

    Is it EVER about the kiddies, at least when it comes to the radical left at America's throat? Recall, this is a mindset which has allowed Kevin Jennings to be appointed (even if he has been re-shuffled) as "safe school's" czar, although a devotee to NAMBLA!! What does one make of Billy boy Ayers, a domestic terrorist, as head of teaching the nation's teachers, you know, the ones who are in charge of the kiddies from K-12 – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/25/domestic-terr

    The above IS the true face of today's left. And the Boys/Girls Scouts, the one place where morals and high standards have been taught for generations, must be eliminated to satiate their deconstruction of traditional society. May the left rot….

    In the Norman Rockwell painting, the boy scout is discreetly using a scout handbook to conceal the scout master's erection.

      I had the same thought. But that's probably just my low thinking filthy mind just naturally seeing depravity even in clean cut wholesome Norman Rockwell . *grins*

      There is no scoutmaster in the picture. The older scout is an older scout. The only erection is in your mind. You are a lecherous lowlife.
