Bob Morris, a Republican (what else) state legislator in Indiana, says the Girl Scouts have “been subverted in the name of liberal progressive politics and the destruction of traditional American family values.” He knows this because he read it somewhere on the internet:
“Saying that the Girl Scouts is a “radicalized organization” that promotes “homosexual lifestyles” and is aligned with honorary president Michelle Obama’s “pro-abortion” viewpoint, an Indiana state legislator has told his fellow Republicans he can’t support a proclamation honoring the organization’s 100th anniversary.
The proclamation, as the newspapers says, “applauded the group ‘for the strong positive influence it has had on the American woman.’ ”
But Morris, saying he “did a small amount of web-based research,” claims to have found that the Girl Scouts has “a close strategic affiliation with Planned Parenthood.” He makes that assertion even as he concedes “you will not find evidence of this on the [Girl Scouts’] website — in fact, the websites of these two organizations explicitly deny funding Planned Parenthood.”
All in all, according to Morris, the Girl Scouts is an organization that’s “been subverted in the name of liberal progressive politics and the destruction of traditional American family values.”
You just can’t make this stuff up.
