I was reminded of that reality when I noted the Girl Scouts were infested with militant feminists. These pirates are suggesting the GSA nominate abortion advocate Wendy Davis as its woman of the year.
One may ask, "Why don't conservatives do the same?"
In this case, the answer is obvious: Leftist have no counterpart to the Girl Scouts to be pirated. Leftists are not shipbuilders nor competent sailors. They are pirates! They can't successfully form groups like the Girl Scouts. They can only pirate them.
Lifenews.com published Girl Scout insider, Christy Volanski, who expressed her disdain with the pirating of the GSA by feminists.
“As a concerned pro-lifer who supported the Girl Scout organization for many years, as a girl member and as a troop leader, it saddens me to share the fall of this once venerable organization that to this day retains the support of so many wonderful women and girls, many of whom are unaware of what they are actually supporting. But families deserve to know the truth,” she said. “There are a lot of accusations in the blogosphere about the Girl Scouts. Some are fact, like the Girl Scout organization works alongside abortion providers and funds/promotes abortion rights advocacy groups.”The same was the fate of the Boy Scouts that's been pirated by militant gay hate groups.
There are other examples.
Recall that Harvard was founded in 1636 as a Christian institution formed to train ministers. Yale was similarly found in 1701 for the same reason. Dartmouth University was founded by Eleazar Wheelock, a Congregational minister. In fact, all of the nine colonial universities began as institutions for training ministers or as schools with philosophies rooted in the traditions of our Puritan past. Today they are among the most left-leaning education centers in the world.
When did the transformation take place? When did the leftist pirates take over? Can you think of a single university founded by leftists for leftists that was taken over by conservative scholarship?
The same is true for political movements. The feminist movement of the 19th century was patently pro-life as were practically all early feminists. The Democratic Party was once considerably more conservative than it is today. The influx then influence of the socialist brand is made evident by the policies of Franklin Roosevelt. We are currently watching the Republican Party being overwhelmed by RINO pirates.
The pirates, of course, present themselves as progressives whose presence will steer the ship in the correct direction even as its taking on water and sinking.
It's hard to imagine a time when Hollywood was dominated by patriotic Americans. When conservatives resisted the pirating of their industry by leftists, they were accused of blacklisting. As president of the Screen Actors Guild in 1947, Ronald Reagan openly denounced the influence of the political left in Hollywood, calling it "communism." True to the pattern, conservatives in the entertainment business eventually abandoned ship and for decades remained scarce or in the closet. More recently they have formed a new affinity group called Friends of Abe.
What applies to the Girl Scouts, political movements, and even industries also applies to nations.
With a few notable exceptions such as Jonestown in Guyana, New Harmony in Indiana, and a host of hippie communes, socialists seldom set out to set up their own communities. When they do, they all fail. Leftists prefer to pirate free-market regions and press them leftward until they, too, fail. Such was the case in Russia and China. Though recovering, both nations bear the debilitating scars of socialism.
When leftists attempt to form organizations, they nearly always fail. The National Organization for Women is a mere shadow of its former self. ACORN flopped. Air America Radio is defunct. A host of surviving leftists upstarts all bear the same burden: They are funded by George Soros rather than grass roots support and once that financial underpinning is gone, they, too, are damned to destruction. You may read a list of these organizations here.
The United States of America is being pirated by the left. Unfortunately, conservative can't jump ship and found a new nation. There is nowhere to go.
For once we must stand and fight.
