The Boy Scouts, as an organization, is pretty much done.
The far left infiltrated it, and ultimately ruined it. First, they demanded that girls be allowed to join, and they folded.
Now, they are going to require a ‘diversity and inclusion’ merit badge to attain the rank of Eagle Scout.
This is a progressive concept that comes straight off far left college campuses.
The Daily Wire reports:
LETTER: Boy Scouts Introduce Black Lives Matter Inspired ‘Diversity And Inclusion’ Badge, Will Be Required To Become Eagle Scout
In a letter posted Monday, the National Executive Committee for the Boy Scouts of America announced a new badge related to “diversity and inclusion” in conjunction with the far-left, anti-cop Black Lives Matter movement.
The new badge will be a prerequisite to becoming an Eagle Scout, according to the committee.
Though Black Lives Matter is clearly political, calling for the national defunding of police departments and the disruption of the nuclear family, the Scouts claim the move is apolitical and about mere anti-racism.
“We condemn the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and all those who are not named but are equally important,” the letter to scout families reads. “We hear the anguish, feel the heartbreak, and join the country’s resolve to do better.”
Not everyone is impressed with this move.
The Boy Scouts are introducing an "inclusion" badge in a partnership with BLM. You must earn to it become an Eagle Scout.
If your kid needs a badge to feel good about accepting people, you're doing a crappy job as a parent. Woke politics is ruining everything.

I honestly hate this. I don’t mind this being an optional merit badge but it to be required it absolutely ridiculous. What I loved about scouting is how they kept politics and scouts separate but now that doesn’t seem to be the case. @boyscouts pic.twitter.com/aOWPBwKHz3

Boy Scouts of America just announced they are partnering with BLACK LIVES MATTER to force all Scouts to earn a new "Inclusion" badge if they want to be an Eagle Scout.
They insist that BLM "is not political."

It’s very sad that progressive politics have invaded nearly every aspect of life.
