Bet that wouldn't have happened with a girl Boy Scout. Bwahahahahaha.....


On the serious side, I feel for this kid. WtF is wrong with the mother to use a 10 yo for making political points?


Most of the left was all for kids football teams taking a knee. hmmm

two questions he'd composed with the assistance of his mother


and there is the problem


Exactly my thoughts. As disgusting as it is that his den leader felt compelled to kick the kid out, I find it vastly more disgusting that his mother decided to use him as a platform for her own questions.


Or perhaps if Vicki Marble didn't want to answer the tough questions, stay in her snowflake safe place, away from people that have a different view than her GOP agenda. It's a little late now though, it's gone viral on social media and blowing up in her face. Now she will be blamed for getting the kid kicked out of the scouts.

Yea, but you're assuming that these are the mother's questions. How do we know that these aren't actually the childs political interests?

She may have helped write or word the questions, but they very well may be what the boy wanted to ask about. We don't know. Either way, this was a good learning experience for the boy when it comes to politics and social issues.
Sometimes your views can cause a little chaos for you.

I really doubt anybody goes to a Cub Scout meeting expecting to get taken to task for their voting record by a grade schooler.

Either way, kicking the kid out over the question makes no sense. If we assume that the other kids' parents didn't help them with their questions (which I highly doubt considering that most 10-11 year-old kids wouldn't wouldn't be asking about fracking ffs), why take it out on the kid?

What kind of petty asshole wouldn't take it up with the parent?

I can get lamenting politicizing kids. I cringe every time Sarah Huckabee Sanders reads some letter from a suspiciously politically-inclined eight year-old fawning over Trump — but I can't imagine a reasonable justification for kicking the kid out.

There isn't a good reason for it, no. The kid is obviously reciting whatever his mother got him to memorize, so it's a pretty clear cut case of killing the messenger.

According to Vicki Marble, the question wasn't much different from the questions she fields in other Q&A venues. She didn't seem the least bit phased by it.

I guess when elected representatives come to visit, kids should stick to asking them if they like turtles and "is your job hard?"

Nope. His kid is probably out shopping for bike locks right now. I heard that stuff leads to kids joining Antifa, destroying property and getting arrest records.

Don't you think the question...."should an physically abusive spouse be allowed to own a firearm?" deserve an answer.

How would you answer said question....

Maybe. But in the meantime, he likes my boots.

Furthermore, the politician should step in and say she doesn't feel the scout should be kicked out of she had any intergrity.


That seems like a really good opportunity missed imo. She could have stood up for the kid asking her difficult questions and looked like a hero AND taught him something about putting fundamental ideals we should all hold over partisan politics.

"Leads to"...?

They had their first meeting over the summer man. I can't even keep up with the radicalization.

I think a few members are wholy underestimating a 10-11yo childs intelligence, especially towards social issues.

Of course, there are dullard 10-11yo, but most are fairly in tune to the social issues surrounding them at that point.

I was thinking of something a little more masculine.

Anything respectable, good, wholesome, moral or Godly, they will destroy. Should tell you who we are dealing with here.
