Hate-filled Ellen Barkin slams Rick Perry, Boy Scouts: What are their values? ‘Hate? Homophobia?’

Sigh. Yet another celebrity desperately seeking relevancy by slamming the Boy Scouts. Actress Ellen Barkin got in a shot at Texas Governor Rick Perry, as well. Perry has been a long-time supporter of the Boy Scouts and recently took on Madonna for her absurd attempt at attention, when she donned a Boy Scouts uniform at the GLAAD awards.

Barkin continued rambling on her Twitter feed after Twitter users schooled the Hollywood lib.

Boy? We thought that was racist! The schooling continues:

Bingo. Oh, how brave they are to parrot each other’s lines!

Some helped her out by listing the values that seem to be beyond her ken.

Zing!

Heh. By the way, what values do you espouse, Ellen?

Civility! And in case she forgot some of her other “values,” here is a reminder:

Values? Hater, heal thyself.

    Ellen who? HONESTLY! Who is this silly person, and why does she matter at all in the scheme of things? I just Googled her name and I STILL don’t know this person.

        its their particular playbook. Thats all they have left.
        I’m tired of intolerant gays trying to force their beliefs on me and the rest of society.
        Leave alone the Boy Scouts! Go somewhere else to recruiting!

    simple as this analogy:
    if im invited to a gay bar i shut the fuck up and just stay in my group.
    i dont start yelling to other people because of who they are, i dont try to change the place to be more “incluisive” and i have to respect the rules of the house.
    but then again liberal logic is based on “the feels” (meme) so an argument with them is a lost cause

    • CitizenGeek

      The two are not analagous. First of all, you are not excluded or barred from attending a gay club simply because you are straight. Secondly, gay clubs are by their nature, for gay people. The analogy only works if you think gay teenagers are, because they like boys instead of girls, unpatriotic, unkind, unhelpful, etc. Is that what you think?

      • NRPax

        Gay kids are admitted into the Scouts. And there are alternatives to the Boy Scouts that are far more openly welcoming. So what’s the real issue?

        • conservativechick

Either they’re starving for attention or they feel the need to try and influence those among us who don’t have the capacity to form their own opinions. Another example this date, here on Twitchy, is the vile ramblings of Jim Carrey. In his case, he should be placed out of sight in the animal enclosures, behind bars, at the zoo with all of his animal buddies.

      40 years ago, the principal of my elementary school was an Eagle Scout, troop leader, member of the national BSA council and major proponent of BSA. He was also a homosexual in a very conservative suburb of Detroit….and the parents all knew. Barky needs to get a life!

  • 1348jake

    Scout oath: On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country. To help other people at all times, to obey the Scout Law and to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
    Scout law: A Scout is: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.
    Those are some values that the Scouts Have. Hate? Homophobia? Your twitter tweets show how full of hate you are madam.

    • NRPax

      The problem is that all of the values you have mentioned imply that their point of view is valid and things that go against it are not. In the eyes of moral relativists like her, everyone’s views should be equally important. Does that help?

      • William2010

        But leftists like Barkin do not tolerate as equal everyone’s views. They are strict about whose views they tolerate and whose they don’t. Christian? Pro-life/Anti-abortion? Pro-Boy Scouts? Pro-real, traditional marriage? etc., etc.? Your views warrant abuse, assault, condemnation, and censoring, and you deserve “Diversity training,” because “Your mind ain’t right,” and you must have mental “retraining” so you think like Barkin and her fellow entertainment industry, leftist, intolerant “Cult” members. The hatred within in them is palpable and sickening.

        • NRPax

          No, no…they claim that all views are equal until they get to someone with whom they disagree. And those people are wrong, while they still believe in moral relativity.

          Believe me…it takes a lot of drugs for that to make any sense.

      • jimwilson81

        Moral relativism does not work. That is the argument that Hitler used – the ends justify the means.

  • notenoughtime

    Barkin and Hollywood need to concentrate on their own lives and leave the situation in the Boy Scouts to those directly involved. My advice to Barkin is to lay off twitter and botox – the combination of both make it difficult to assume that she has much going on in that head of hers!

    So she ends up on a show that tries to copy Modern Family but with a twist of how stupid everyone else that doesn’t agree with their agenda is. The only reason this piece of garbage is still on the air is that it is pro-gay, nothing else.

    Just what America really needs right now: the Boy Outs

  • $23629333

    Ellen, if you want to criticize the Boy Scouts for their relative lack of success in protecting their boys, you can do so. However – unless the sexual abuse of children is of no concern to you – you cannot criticize them for wanting and trying to protect their boys. Of course, if you have no problem with abortion, you probably do not care about such abuse.

    I’m actually for letting the Scouts themselves in. I’ve heard of instances where Eagle Scouts get their award despite openly having sex with their girlfriends. How is that different?

    I dunno. I still say leave it up to the individual groups. Easier that way.

Though people generally do not like to hear his opinion on this matter, as it causes great angst and cognitive dissonance, he reports never having been the subject of mockery, exclusion, or attack.

      Heterosexual Eagle scouts openly having sex with their girlfriend? Like in a park setting? Completely natural. An Eagle Scout and another male Scout having sex in a park like setting. Just not natural. Having sex before marriage is probably against the moral code of the scouts so you do have a point there. Just can’t picture the openly part, like on a table at Denny’s.

    What is with the “Gay Community” forcing their demented values on the rest of society. Start your own “Rainbow Scouts” then you can have ALL gay scout masters. They can give out sodomy badges, and have special tents for pedophilia prone scout masters which is there ultimate goal, to destroy Scouting with diversity training and progressive filth indoctrination.

  • Thron

    According to an Indiana University study, males subjected to a high dose of pornography daily will over time accept homosexuality which seems like a very perverted path to acceptance. Maybe each Scout troop should make their own decisions about gays and accept the legal consequences without national support. Time will either prove the national association right or wrong and universal acceptance or rejection will be made on historical facts not political correct feelings.

    BSA values are traditional American values; Judea-Christian values & BSA fellowships with same. Christians interact with pagans but not fellowship, less we become like them.

    Study American history beginning with initial European immigrants, through subsequent 400+years of non-centralized education, with highest literacy rate, when bible study was mandatory(by law).

    Schools taught Christian moral values, citizenship, individual responsibility, civil behavior, respect for authority, consequences of actions.
    Prisons were not overpopulated. You tear down moral standards, Christian symbols, faith-based morality, outlawed parental authority, promote sexual abomination and promiscuity in our youngest children, providing school-based STD clinics, and you destroyed the traditional family unit, the basic institution of civilization.

    Remember the once mighty Roman Empire? It collapsed in moral decadence, debauchery, having abandoned their former ways.
    The USA followed in Rome’s footsteps, and suffering the same consequence.

  • US Army (retired)

    Virtues, NOT Values: The Difference Is Crucial. When America stopped teaching the virtues and started talking about types of behavior as economic commodities, we began our descent. Virtues are absolute: values rise and fall and are exchangeable. Values have been equated with opinions/personal beliefs, and with relativism in play, values become worthless. Courage is not a “value” which can be bartered intellectually. Honesty is absolute: its value does not rise and fall with opinions, unless you are a DEMOCRAT.
