The Boy Scouts Filing Bankruptcy After A String Of “Woke” Decisions Caused It To Go Broke

The once proud organization known as the Boy Scouts is declaring bankruptcy after severely flagging numbers due to a myriad of problems, including implementing social justice measures to make it more inclusive.

According to the Daily Caller, the Boy Scouts changed its name to Scouts BSA and began to allow girls into their ranks. Before that, the Boy Scouts ruled that openly gay scouts and scout leaders could also join the program. This lead to a serious decline in membership and now the organization is filing Chapter 11:

The Wednesday report comes in the wake of sinking membership and multiple controversies surrounding the 108-year-old organization, including sex abuse allegationsand its controversial decision to change its program name from Boy Scouts to Scouts BSA and allow girls into that program.

Chicago law firm Sidley Austin has reportedly been hired to assist in what would be a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

As the organization has made decisions deemed to be more inclusive, such as allowing openly gay scouts in 2013 and scoutmasters in 2015 as well as the 2018 decision to allow girls, membership has continued to decline sharply, from over 4 million members at its peak to a claimed 2.3 million members at present.

The boy scouts was going broke, and these what seem like radical decisions were made to try and inject life into a dying organization... it was doomed in the first place... these changes aren't what killed it.

It's not post World War II anymore... this weird religious nationalism isn't a thing.. and kids don't care about it. There are too many options to capture their attention than some lame group that has tired mottos and silly hand signals.

Seriously, does a kid wanna go camping and be wet and freeze his butt off, or stay warm and dry and play Fortnite with his friends? Scouts has a serious PR issue, and it's just not fun for the average boy, and hasn't been for over 20 years.

That's what is killing scouts... not these things they are trying to do to keep it afloat.
