The New Boy Scouts: Major Membership Decline
Not even their recent opening of their membership to girls can stem the decline: As the old institutions fall under the weight of their capitulation to the anti-White agenda, racially-conscious Whites will have an opportunity to build all our institutions anew.

YOU SHOULD NOT let your boys join the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) because they allow homosexuals to join as members and they hire them as scoutmasters too.
Since changing their policies to allow homosexual boys to be scouts, the BSA has had a steady decline in membership. Apparently, no sexually normal and morally decent boy wants to go on a camp-out with fellow scouts whose gaze lingers overly long on their backsides.
Initially a trickle, the departure of normal boys from scouting accelerated. Why? Because as homosexuals grow in proportion to non-homosexuals, they become aggressive. That — combined with the fact that Political Correctness serves to shield queers from the recognition, let alone the consequences, of their bad behavior — tends to accelerate the departure of normal boys from any pervert-infested group.

The Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) has accused the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) of poaching its members.
The Dallas Morning News reported this week that “a sharply worded letter from the Girl Scouts of the USA accuses the Irving-based Boy Scouts of America of conducting a ‘covert campaign’ to recruit girls into its programs to boost the Boy Scouts’ falling membership.”
The letter came from GSUSA president Kathy Hopinkah Hannan. She wrote that the Boy Scouts are “surreptitiously testing the appeal of a girls’ offering to millennial parents.” She also wrote that the Boy Scout leaders have made “disparaging and untrue remarks” about Girl Scout programs.
“Rather than seeking to fundamentally transform BSA into a co-ed program,” she wrote, “we believe strongly that Boy Scouts should instead take steps to ensure that they are expanding the scope of their programming to all boys, including those who BSA has historically underserved and underrepresented, such as African-American and Latino boys.”
A spokesperson for the Boy Scouts contended that the BSA and the GSUSA had been in conversations regarding joint programs. Effie Delimarkos said the BSA had hoped to identify “potential areas of opportunities for alignment in the future.” However, the GSUSA’s Hannan characterized the conversations and proposals as a “hostile takeover.”
The BSA has been an American institution for more than 100 years. During that time more than 105 million men and boys have participated in the program. However, recent years have seen a significant decline in Scouting membership and revenue. In 2014 the Boy Scouts began allowing openly gay boys into Scout troops. The next year, membership fell by about 6 percent, the largest single-year decline in membership in the organization’s history. Between 2013 and 2016 (the last year for which numbers are publicly available), membership has fallen by about 10 percent.
Scouts began accepting gay adult leaders in 2015. Earlier this year, the BSA began accepting transgender boys (girls who identify themselves as boys). The Mormon Church, Scouting’s largest faith-based partner, announced in May it would pull about 185,000 boys out of the program in response to these developments.
Evangelicals have also been exiting the BSA.
