'Pro-War' Boy Scouts in Cambridge...the Horror!

News about this story has been heating up over the last week.

Those horrible Boy Scouts! How dare they set up collection boxes at the polls to raise money for care packages to send to our troops in the Middle East? They should be hung and quartered for sending the message the city of Cambridge, Massachusetts might possibly support the war effort or, at the very least, the troops. (You know, the "we support the troops but not the war" mantra?) That just won't do.

Well, being a civilized society, the next best thing in Cambridge (Home of the Liberal) was done: have the boxes removed and tell those dastardly Boy Scouts they're too (shudder) pro-war.

That's what "Executive Director of the city's Election Commission" (sounds fancy!) Marsha Weinerman did. Due to one complaint by some overly-sensitive liberal citizen, and citing a law that doesn't allow political messages within 150 feet of polling stations, Weinerman sure showed the Boy Scouts who's in charge in Cambridge!

It doesn't matter that the Massachusetts secretary of state said the collection boxes were legal because they didn't pertain to that particular election. And the Boy Scouts claim they received permission, twice.

I wonder...had it been another group, would this have happened? We all know libs have it in for the Boy Scouts in general, believing in God and all, so perhaps this was just one more nail they could pound in the coffin.

Here in Connecticut, we have a special name for people from Massachusetts: Massholes. Usually we only refer to them that way on the roads when we're trying to avoid being hit by cars with MASS plates, but in Weinerman's case, I think the name fits.

As the Boston Daily Blog said, "way to stand up to those preteen hawks."

Melanie Morgan has something to say about it, both at her site and in her weekly WND column. Moonbattery also posted about it this week.


Proudly told the Boy Scouts where to get off!

In Philly, we kicked them out of the HQ they've rented for 100 years. Why? Because they hate gays!

About the Boy Scout Cambridge donation box story.

I am just wondering who made the complaint and what is their background.

Does anyone have any information?

I think it would make a good blog.

The irony: It was in Cambridge on July 3, 1775 that George Washington took command of the Continental Army.

If the Boy Scouts are a religious organization in disguise, than why should they get any tax, or rent breaks?

What about Operation Putsch - Reverand Jackson's enterprise and Reverand Al Sharpton's National Newtork? They Church up a storm, but the ACLU gives them a huge pass.
