Donald J Trump is the Antithesis of the Spirit of Scouting and America
As a member of the Boy Scouts of America, I invite all members, especially Eagle Scouts, to stand together against the racial and religious intolerance that Donald Trump’s policies and rhetoric promotes. It is putting our Latino, Muslim-American, the disabled, and other community members directly at risk.
There is no place for this kind of discrimination in the Boy Scouts of America or in America.
As a community, we affirm the values that make us who we are: trustworthiness, loyalty, helpfulness, friendliness, courtesy, kindness, obedience, cheerfulness, thriftiness, cleanliness, and reverence. Join me in saying: Donald Trump is not who America is, and he is not who the Boy Scouts of America are.
Why is this important?
The Boy Scouts of America help shape young men into leaders of tomorrow. The behavior and attitudes of Mr. Trump are not to be emulated, but out right rejected. Our boys need to have a positive model, something which Mr. Trump certainly is NOT.
