Trump Give Boy Scouts Of America A Pathetic Lesson



I doubt there is a person who reads the TPI who can attest to viewing the two following images during the period in which they were shot.

The message innate in now publishing the images is as clear as world history for 1929 through the end of World War II in 1945. The messages come on a daily basis. Trump's presidential administration offers us incessant reminders of the early days of Adolf Hitler's assumption of government in Germany. From well organized authoritarian communications to support the Third Reich, through obvious attacks n democratic institution, we rarely miss a day of a horrific reminder for a national leader.

Why are we posting such images? If you are not aware of the need to address past sins while feigning sanity and working every day to facilitate assimilation of authoritarianism, you have been asleep since last Sunday night. Donald Trump's visit to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Jamboree is a reminder of the danger inherent in politicizing the organization (BSA), as well as the visit, is drawing fire from many areas.

CNN's Editor-at-Large, Chris Cillizza published 28 comments in the speech which for him were literally cringe-worthy. link.




A few Twitter reactions: 




As a Scout leader, my stomach is in knots about what Trump did today. If you haven't watched it yet, don't. It's downright icky.




A view from a non-trump supporter: MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.


The Boy Scouts of America issued a statement regarding the speech. It is noteworthy the statement is a vanilla surface (safe) statement which avoids the central area of complaint. Trump politicized the event after placing an opening statement with the word "hell."  


NPR also published a piece about Trump's poor judgment.

The BSA Facebook page is also showing signs people really did not appreciate Trump's ill advised and whacked out Jamboree speech.

It seems everything rump touches turn to dirt.
