Girl Scouts, the EPA and the ‘Forever Green Pledge’


If this is not right out of the 1930’s. Getting the youth to make pledges based on the belief system of the government. First it starts here, then….

The Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) developed the campaign with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. But Michelle Tompkins, a spokeswoman for the national office of the Girl Scouts of the USA, told CNSNews.com the pledge was not a case of the organization aligning itself with the Obama administration.

“The pledge shown on our Web site is just…to show girls a possible way of advocacy, and there will not be – we won’t take sides either way on this matter,” she said. Surely you jest! Here is the Pledge

EPA Site :  Linking Girls to the Land–LGTTL partnership offers travel opportunities, funding, awards, resources, and trainings to support this vision.

The Girl Scouts of the United States of America has launched a campaign called Forever Green that included an online pledge girls could sign, promising they would encourage public officials to pass emissions-reducing legislation

But after CNSNews.com asked the organization about the political advocacy on Tuesday, the pledge was removed from the Girl Scouts’ Web site. The language should not have been so “inflammatory,” one official said.

One of the tenets of the pledge was to, “Inform my elected local, state, and federal officials about my views on environmental policies and urge them to support legislation that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and promotes energy efficiency and renewable technologies.”

      Too bad you could not have left a reasonable comment so that we could have had a discussion. That is something you folks have trouble with. You keep drinking the kool-aid. Have a nice day.

    Things are even worse than this. Look on the HonestGirlScouts(dot)com website and see for yourself how GSUSA is actually indoctrinating our youth to follow radical, liberal ideas and agendas. (By the way, the link you provided to the pledge has been scrubbed clean of the mention of supporting Obama’s legislation.)

    Wow…. I want to say something about just this but it’s simply another checkmark on a really long list of indoctrination that is coming down the pike. I am so worried about this stuff because if these kids take this brainwashed ideology with them, where will we be as a nation in 30 years when they become influential? Why can’t the damn political machine keep their hands of off children!?! Let kids grow up and decide for themselves! Is their message that weak that they have to go after impressionable minds who don’t have the ability to create rational arguments against the agenda? No, don’t answer that last one… we all know the answer to that.
