  • How is this oniony?
    The amount of posts lately from people who it seems have never even read an Onion headline.

  • in this story: absolutely everyone looks pathetic

  • That’s the lesson that they wanted to teach an 11 year old kid?

  • Parents used their child for political means… Shocking /s

  • “There’s something wrong in this country when Republicans believe it is a right to own a gun but a privilege to have healthcare.”

    Damnit. There is that pesky Constitution and its Bill of Rights filling Americans with crazy ideas again.

  • People saying this child was being used by parents maybe haven’t taught 5th and 6th graders. They have minds of their own, though his parents are probably liberals. His thoughts were his own at this point. This wasn’t a 2nd or 3rd grader. To be kicked out of his troop after Trump set the example of politicizing scouts in his speech is unfair to say the least. We hold 5th and 6th graders to a higher standard than the President of the United States now in the Cub/Boy Scouts.

  • Kid learned a valuable lesson. Cub scouts aren’t for independent thinkers apparently. No one really cares if his parents coached him on his question. Parents probably coached all the kids. They only care that he asked the “wrong” question. There are no wrong questions. Just ones with inconvenient answers. If the cub scouts believe in group think, its not the place for him. Same is probably true for a lot of organized clubs for kids. If you all have to think one way then head for the fucking hills. I think this should be in uplifting news. Not really. But maybe blessing in diaguise news. If a grown man can’t handle a question that can be expressed by a child, he’s an idiot who should not be defended. He was embarrassed!? Are you shitting me? If a child can embarass you then you should be embarassed. If he believes in his ideas let him defend them. Fucking weaksauce. Agree or disagree with the kid’s position I’m amazed people defend a man who claims leadership but cant defend himself from a child’s question.
