I bet you didn't know about this:

Next month, the Girl Scouts USA national convention will be held in Atlanta. It will be a gathering of radical feminists, lesbians, and cookie peddlers... During the last couple years, it has become clear that the Girl Scouts – nationally and, in many cases, locally – is allied with the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood... The Girl Scouts is almost as much a part of the radical feminist movement  as the National Organization for Women. Knowing the radical agenda of the national Girl Scouts organization, parents need to take action.

It's not your mother's Girl Scouts, anymore. At least not in the fever dreams of this Washington legislative candidate, Hans Zeigler. Yikes. Does the cookie peddling lead to radical lesbianism? Maybe it's something they use in those thin mints. If you think he's radical on service organizations for children, you should hear him on all the other religions:

Frustrated with the fact that the bulk of people involved in the National Day of Prayer actually believe in God, Lynn and his left-wing atheist-secularist-ecumenist allies are holding their own counter-events this year. [...] Unitarians, mainstream Baptists, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, members of the “Military Pagan Network”  and other watered-down ecumenists will hold an “Interfaith Day of Prayer and Reflection” on the steps of the Oklahoma State Capitol today to pray to the generic god.

But ... the significant difference between the kumbaya sessions and interfaith vigils and atheist protests of the Religious Left and the Bible studies and prayer circles of the Religious Right is that our God is real.

You really don't even want to know what he says about Islam. Oh, and the National Education Association and the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network are terrorist organizations. This guy got 36% of the vote in last month's top two primary. This is just one legislative district in one state in the country--but a one of the blue states. But it's instructive for what's happening with the Republican party in this state and around the country, as they embrace the teabagger extremism. Goldy has been keeping watch, and to date, the most prominent Republican, and definite 2012 candidate for governor, in this state won't condemn this guy's crazy. He won't even withdraw his endorsement.

There are always going to be a few out-there candidates who slip through the cracks. But this year it's become epidemic, from U.S. Senate races on down the ticket. Today's Republicans, seeing vast political conspiracies in children's organizations.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
