Just Say No to Girl Scout Cookies
If you find it difficult turning down cute little girls who want to put an inch or two on your waist by selling you tasty cookies, maybe this will help:
A few weeks ago, the Girl Scouts designated Wendy Davis as an “incredible woman” who deserved to be on the list of 2013 “Women of the Year.” Only a month earlier, the organization promoted Kathleen Sebelius as a woman of “courage” on its Facebook page.
Wendy Davis (a.k.a. Abortion Barbie) is not only a phony, but a single-issue political phenom whose sole purpose appears to be to advance abortion. She burst onto the scene by enthralling liberals with an 11-hour filibuster intended to stop a Texas bill to prevent the murder of viable fetuses and other fetuses old enough to provably be conscious of the agony of death by abortion.
As for Kathleen Sebelius (a.k.a. the Abortion Queen because of her ties to the abortion cartel),
Kathleen Sebelius has been the bÃªte noir of the pro-life movement for her role in Obamacare and mandating abortion coverage even for religious entities, what some Catholic bishops have called the largest expansion of abortion in the country since Roe v. Wade.
John Pisciotta of Waco is leading a group of pro-life organizations in a national boycott of Girl Scout cookies.
Pisciotta says people should look closely at where the money goes from these sales. The Girl Scouts claims that 100% of cookie revenue stays with the regional councils, with a portion going to the local troop, and that the national office receives no revenue from cookie sales. However, Girl Scouts USA receives millions in licensing fees for every box sold, money that contributes substantially to its enormous budget.
Ann Saladin, who runs MyGirlScoutCouncil.com, points out that even the regional councils, and therefore much of the cookie money, are directly implicated in abortion advocacy. Her website lists all the local councils with abortion troubles.
The Girl Scouts also claims that no cookie money goes to any other group. However, Girl Scouts USA makes an annual donation of $1.5 million to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, a group on record as supporting [abortion].
Pisciotta’s tiny pro-life outfit is up against a giant. It avoids punishment by Obama’s weaponized IRS by raising less than $50,000 per year.
On the other hand, the national office of the Girl Scouts raised more than $100 million last year. This does not include $700 million in cookie sales.
However, he has taken on the degenerates who have commandeered Girl Scouts before – and with some success.
In 2003 Pisciotta ran what started as a local boycott after the local Girl Scout Council sponsored a controversial conference with Planned Parenthood called Nobody’s Fool, at which a booklet was offered to young children that included, among other things, a boy masturbating, a drawing of a boy standing at a school chalk board looking at the bulge in his pants, a naked woman straddling a man, and more. The local council also named the CEO of Planned Parenthood-Waco as a Woman of Distinction.
That campaign put Pisciotta and his allies on local and national television and caused Girl Scouts USA CEO Kathy Cloninger to go on the Today Show to try to cauterize the wound. It was on that program, however, that Cloninger admitted that the Girl Scouts works with Planned Parenthood groups around the country, a statement that has bedeviled the Girl Scouts since then.
It must not have occurred to the Girl Scouts’ presumably feminist brass that half of the children killed were girls.
Not that they aren’t righteous people – from the liberal point of view:
The Girl Scouts organization has shown sensitivity to the political and humanitarian concerns of its members. According to the Girl Scout FAQ page, the cocoa used in the cookies is “conflict free,” and no cookie can be made with genetically modified crops. It even promises its cookies are made with “corporate sustainability” and “social responsibility” in mind.
Apparently the dispute between babies who want to live and abortionists paid to kill them doesn’t count as a conflict when it comes to conflict-free cookies.
