Nearly 40,000 people attended the Boy Scout Jamboree on Monday. The enormous crowd cheered for Trump and chanted “We Love Trump!” It was a major event and of course, the whole country took notice. Those on the right praised Trump for having the guts to stand in front of such a major crowd and speak his mind much like he always does. Of course, the Left took it and ran with the idea that it paralleled another major infamous historic figure, Adolf Hitler. They compared Trump and the boy scouts to Hitler and his brainwashing Hitler Youth program that saw thousands of children from Nazi Germany being taught the Nazi way. We should expect no less from Liberals.
Trump took the time to bash former President Barack Obama for never attending a Jamboree event amid grumbles from the audience, but immediately afterward the crowd chanted “We love Trump” over and over again. Trump also took the time to slam the mainstream media for spreading false information and made his stance clear on healthcare reform. He also told the scouts to “remember your duty. Honor your history. Take care of the people God puts into your life – and LOVE & CHERISH your country!” A young scout was caught on camera screaming, “I Love You!” to the president. He was overjoyed the President took the time to attend the event.
According to Newsweek:
President Donald Trump brought his bombastic politics to a Boy Scouts event Monday in West Virginia, drawing cheers from the children gathered at the event and prompting comparisons between his rousing rhetoric and Nazi youth rallies from some liberal activists and journalists.
The president, the first sitting U.S. commander-in-chief to address the group since George W. Bush, used his speech to slam the “fake news,” demand loyalty from administration officials and advocate for the overhaul of federal health care. He spoke to about 40,000 people at the Boy Scouts of America 2017 National Scout Jamboree.
“As the scout law says, a scout is trustworthy, loyal,” Trump said, before adding, “We could use some more loyalty, I will tell you that.” As he spoke, the crowd chanted “U.S.A” and applauded, prompting some critics of the president, who has the lowest approval ratings in modern history, to compare his rhetoric to the Hitler Youth, a wing of Germany’s Nazi party.
Trump constantly speaks about loyalty. He did so tonight w/ the Boy Scouts. Hitler demanded a personal oath of loyalty from German military.

Trump has officially succeeded in making the Boy Scouts feel a bit like the Hitler Youth, which was made mandatory by the Nazis in 1936. https://t.co/9HhnQpzkA2

“The Boy Scouts must distance themselves from that offensive attempt to politicize scouting and turn them into a Trump youth organization,” wrote Richard W. Painter, vice-chairman of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and the chief ethics lawyer in the White House under Bush, on Twitter Monday night.
Trump reminded the crowd of his victory against Hillary Clinton in the November presidential election and thanked Americans for supporting him after he lost the popular vote to her. “Do you remember that famous night on television, November 8?” Trump asked. He said his ascendance to the White House was “an unbelievable tribute to you and all of the other millions and millions of people that came out and voted for Make America Great Again.”
At one point, Trump pointed out Obama’s decision not to attend a jamboree during his two terms in office. He told the crowd, “Did President Obama ever come to a Jamboree?” Boy Scouts yelled out in response: “Noooooooo!”
Trump referred to one of his campaign slogans at another point: “The Scouts believe in putting America First.”
The Boy Scouts of America said in a statement after the speech that the organization did not endorse Trump or any “position, product, service, political candidate or philosophy.” The group has a tradition of inviting sitting presidents to address its annual gathering. It concluded, “the sitting U.S. president serves as the BSA’s honorary president. It is our longstanding custom to invite the U.S. president to the National Jamboree.”
The left continues their relentless attacks on Trump, but the President has a strong base as can be seen during the Jamboree. Liberals may think they have millennials in their pocket, but they fail to realize there is now a younger generation who is being focused on by Trump which is a very smart move to ensure the future is not so one-sided. I applaud the President for attending the event and speaking to the young scouts and their families. If the media continues to spread lies, Trump will take his message directly to the people no matter how much the left tries to compare him to Hitler.
