Conservative Calls For Boycott Of Girl Scout Cookies Because of AOC

This Friday is International Women’s Day and instead of celebrating the successes of feminism over the last century, one prominent conservative voice has declared war on the Girl Scouts.

WorldNetDaily right-wing columnist Jane Chastain encouraged a boycott of Girl Scout cookies over the group’s affiliation with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), a liberal firebrand who in 2017 helped establish a Girl Scouts chapter for homeless youth.

Chastain’s bizarre op-ed appeared on the fringe “news” site on Wednesday.

“It is no small coincidence that the Girl Scouts are out in force this month selling cookies on street corners, in front of grocery stores and other places of business. For many years, I would buy at least one box from every girl I met, even if I had a dozen or more boxes at home,” Chastain wrote. “The Girl Scouts were an important part of my formative years, and I sold hundreds of boxes of these cookies myself, so I considered it payback, paying it forward so to speak. Not anymore.”

Chastain’s argument is that the Girl Scouts have become too progressive in their pursuits of equality, justice, and self-determination.

“Today’s Girl Scouts are a far cry from those of my youth, which trained us to put God and country before everything else,” Chastain wrote. “Today, God in the Girl Scout promise has an asterisk, meaning the great I AM and His moral absolutes can be replaced by anything, including oneself.”

Right, because helping homeless girls is the opposite of what God would want. But it gets even better.

“Country, also, has taken a backseat,” Chastain complained. “The emphasis is on global citizenship, which is fine unless you stop to consider that most of the world is not free and the world’s values are often at odds with our own.”

Just look at the horrors American women have suffered at the hands of the Girl Scouts, as Chastain points out:

“In fact, the Girl Scouts are celebrating the victory won by their alums in the 2018 midterms on its website, beginning with their star, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, who attributes much of her success to what she learned as part of this organization. Now Girl Scout alums make up 72 percent of female senators and 60 percent of the women in the 116th Congress. Although the website tries to strike a bipartisan tone, it is no accident that, among this year’s freshmen, Carol Miller is the only Republican, and she is much older, 68, than the rest. Her training in scouting was well before the feminist takeover that occurred in 1970.”

AOC responded perfectly to Chastain’s editorial:

“Boycotting cookies that teach little girls leadership skills to own the libs… nice job… I’ll take 10…”

AOC should be proud.

Oh no! Whatever will women do with the opportunity to break free of the shackles of predetermined, heteronormative gender roles?

Fear not, ladies. Chastain has a solution: Boycott Girl Scout cookies and join a more fundamentalist-friendly organization that opposes abortion and reproductive freedom for women.

“When feminist Betty Friedan was put on the national governing board the Girl Scouts began purging their materials of all positive references to homemakers. Partnerships with Planned Parenthood followed, and the Girl Scouts adopted the new global agenda,” Chastain said. “Fortunately, there is now a good scouting alternative, the American Heritage Girls.

Below is what the group is about, straight from its website:

“Clarity is further provided to the following terms:

  • Purity–God calls us to lives of holiness, being pure of heart, mind, word, and deed. We are to reserve sexual activity to the sanctity of marriage; a lifelong commitment before God between a man and a woman.

  • Service–God calls us to become responsible members of our community and the world through selfless acts that contribute to the welfare of others.

  • Stewardship–God calls us to use our God-given time, talents, and money wisely.

  • Integrity–God calls us to live moral lives that demonstrate an inward motivation to do what is right, regardless of the cost.”

1950 is calling.
