Once upon a time, say 1970, Julie (Morse) Quist founded the Amazon Bookstore Cooperative, described in its Wikipedia entry:
In 1970 when Amazon was founded by Rosina Richter Christy and Julie Morse Quist, it was far from a full-fledged bookstore. The books were kept in the front room of the women's collective they lived in and books were only available from 3 to 6 PM or by special arrangement. This arrangement lasted for about two years before the book store moved to Minneapolis' Lesbian Resource Center and then migrated through a series of different storefront addresses.
Now she's come out against the Girl Scouts of America. Take that, cookie lovers!
Sharing a link from Christian Post, Christian Alternative to Boy Scouts Launches On New Year's Day With Close to 500 Troops, Mrs. Quist posted a headnote:
There are alternatives for the boys. Now we need alternatives for the girls.
Two of her Facebook friends noted that alternatives existed, then Quist shared her reason to dissing the slingers of Do-si-dos and Thanks-A-Lot: a Breitbart News article about how the GIRL SCOUTS NAME WENDY DAVIS AS 'INCREDIBLE' WOMAN, SHOW TIES TO ABORTION INDUSTRY.
As Tony Lee of Breitbart News reported Saturday, the Girl Scouts recently promoted late-term abortion advocate and Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis as one of their “incredible women of the year.”
According to the report, the official Girl Scouts Twitter account referred to Davis, who filibustered a bill that banned abortions past 20 weeks of pregnancy, as “incredible,” and linked to a Huffington Post list containing the names of Gloria Steinem and Davis.
The Girl Scouts’ ties to the institutional left and the abortion industry have become increasingly apparent, with Breitbart News’ Austin Ruse delivering the most recent exposéof the organization’s prominent blogger Josh Ackley, who moonlighted as lead singer of a “homo-punk” band called The Dead Betties. The band belongs to a movement called “homocore” that slams disapproval of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender lifestyles. . . .
Thank U Berry Munch for sharing that wisdom, Mrs. Quist.
