Boy Scouts Now Looking To Add A BLM Diversity Badge

Videos by OutKick

The Boy Scouts Of America released a statement in support of Black Lives Matter and now say they’ll require Eagle Scouts to earn a diversity and inclusion badge. According to the rest of their statement, they “haven’t been as brave as they should have been” following the deaths of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery.

This organization turned into a joke when they made it sexist to keep women out of the Boy Scouts, but now they’re a laughing stock.

As Jessica O’Donnell pointed out on Twitter, how many children need a badge to know they’re accepting of others? Chances are that if you need a piece of hard plastic to show your children they’re an honorable member of our youth — you’re a turd sandwich parent.

These are likely the same folks complaining about the role model Cardi B fails to be when they should be their children’s role model in the first place. And we’ve been vocal here at Outkick that gestures don’t matter, yet here they are claiming that’s not what this is:

“This is not a political issue; it is a human rights issue and one we all have a duty to address,” their statement read.

Our duty?

Our duty is to treat others the way we want to be treated. If we do that, then our work on Earth is done. White people don’t owe minorities this bizarre level of cowardice to show they’re not racist. We should’ve known that the Boy Scouts, that used to be an honorable organization, would bend over to the mob.

Breeding beta males and re-shaping the future of our nation. Anyone with a spine should keep their children away from the Boy Scouts and fight back.

In 2014, Boy Scouts Of America banned gay children from joining their program. Fast forward a year and suddenly they’re at the forefront of the war against homophobia. We learned quickly that these programs, medals or pats on the head, don’t matter. They never did. Our children are committing suicide at record paces and the Boy Scouts think ribbons and stitched banners will change lives. They never did and won’t, ever.

Hopefully no one reading this was thinking about sending their child into the Boy Scouts, and if you were, hope this changed your mind.

    • The new top management, hired to steer the national organization through the sex-abuse bankruptcy, has no clue about the actual culture of Scouting in the units. The new “diversity” badge is a slap in the face to the Scout Oath & Law. If you follow those, you’re already living the values of mutual respect.

      Back in the ’60s, when our society was much more segregated, not just racially, but religiously, too – when Catholics and Protestants would never step foot in one another’s churches, when Mormons were dismissed as cultists, every summer those kids all mixed and mingled at Boy Scout summer camps. Got to know each other. Got to see that they ALL lived the Scout Oath & Law, and that the things separating them were nothing compared to what united them.

      The new “diversity” badge is likely to divide Scouts, not unite them. It’s a terrible bonehead move by folks who just don’t “get” Scouting.

  1. My son was to finish up his Eagle this year. He’s also volunteering at camp for 6 weeks this summer. I will leave the decision to him, but my guess is he never gets his Eagle now. BLM is a political organization dumbasses. You’ve just alienated well over half of your membership.

    • If he’s already Life and working on Eagle, he should be exempt from the new diversity MB – particularly as national still hasn’t released it, or what its requirements will be. Completing his Eagle project will show future employers than he can be a project manager: That he can write up a budget, price out materials, work with a client (the Eagle project recipient) to modify project parameters, that he can build and supervise a team of volunteers.

      There’s a reason the Eagle rank has built up such an aura around it – it’s an impressive young person who can do all the things necessary to successfully complete an Eagle project, on top of earning the 22 merit badges, and serving in a variety of troop leadership roles.

      As out of bounds as current national BSA policies may be, the Eagle requirements are still impressive and earning his Eagle will provide a boost to his academic and professional aspirations.

      I hope he earns it.

  2. Man, as a former Boy Scout (Eagle btw), the scouts have fallen so far down the ladder. They are going to turn into Soviet-era and current CCP version of the “Young Pioneers.” Sh*t is about to get Real, ya’all!
