15-Year-Old on Girl Scouts: "We Were So Deceived"

By Rick Pearcey • December 29, 2011, 12:48 PM

Jonathon Seidl reports at The Blaze on how liberal extremism at the Girl Scouts is being exposed:

The girl at the center of the story was 15-year-old Sydney Volanski, who first noticed the [Girl Scouts' reference to the liberal website] Media Matters . . . last year and left the organization over it. Now, Sydney is speaking out.

Sydney joined the crew of “Fox & Friends” on Thursday morning to explain what she found and also to talk about her website, “Speak Now: Girl Scouts Website,” which she co-edits and that was set up to expose other liberal bias within the Scouts.

“My sister and I started a website to help inform families of the more leftward leanings of Girl Scouts because they promise to be neutral politically and about certain social issues,” she explained, “but when you examine the women that they promote and the websites and books that they refer girls to, there is a clear liberal ideology, like with the Media Matters site.”

“With Speak Now: Girl Scouts we’re just trying to spread awareness to families because we were so deceived,” Sydney is quoted as saying. 

“For eight years we were in Girl Scouts and we didn’t realize that Girl Scouts was promoting such a liberal ideology.”

The Blaze also reports that "Sydney went on to claim the Scouts have promoted Planned Parenthood and abortion advocacy groups in the past."
