Awakened Mob Comes to Canadian Girl Guide


The term “awakened mob” has been used frequently in both casual and formal conversations over the last few years. It refers to a perpetually resentful left-wing group that points a painstaking finger at every instance of racial, religious, and gender inequality.

What’s the mob’s latest conquest that woke up? Girl Guide to Canada.

The 100-year-old guide organization recently announced it was renaming its long-running brownie program for girls ages 7 and 8. “I hear from racialized girls that the name is causing harm. murmured November 15th.

Girl Guide to Canada Official website We hear from members and former members that the name Brownie is offensive as a racialized (black, indigenous, or colored) girl or woman. Some people don’t want to be part of this branch because of her name. Some girls choose to skip this branch entirely or delay joining the Girl Guide until after this branch. A barrier to feeling part of the sisterhood and not being able to use words that hurt the girl. ”

Brownie fuss has apparently According to the organization’s CEO, Jill Zelmanowitz, this has been a point of contention since the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. It’s fascinating because no one has mentioned it until now.

That aside, it’s a silly decision. Canada’s girl guide movement dates back to 1910, according to The Brownie “was the first branch of Guiding,” according to formal history. Originally called Rosebud, the name was changed because adults thought it was “sweet” but girls “didn’t like it”.From the Second Boer War in South Africa After returning home, Robert Baden Powell, a British Army general who influenced the Scout movement in his writings, suggested switching it to a brownie. Brownie was made official in 1919 and the first pack to be officially registered was the first Hanover (Ontario) pack on 22nd April 1920. ”.

The history of the branch name has nothing to do with race. It shouldn’t serve as a barrier to former or current members who have done a little research on an organization they seem to care very much about.

Brownies aren’t limited to Canadian girl guides either.

Generations of kids and adults alike have made, eaten and enjoyed chocolate brownies.History of dessert items reportedly Travel back to Chicago’s Palmer House Hotel to a recipe devised by socialite Bertha Palmer in 1893. Bertha Her Palmer husband owned this property. There are also early references to “brownies” in her 1896 edition of Fannie Farmer’s Boston Cooking School Cookbook, Sears Her Roebuck. 1897 Advertisement, and Machias Cook Book of 1899.

Does the name of this delicious dessert offend the Girl Guide of Canada? Should I tell Woke Mobs about changing it too?

There’s also Canadian cartoonist/illustrator Palmer Cox’s famous work “Brownie”. His little creatures, resembling fairies and goblins, play mischief and do good deeds, making early appearances in magazines such as Wide He Awake in 1881. “The Brownie” was so popular that Cox created a series of books based on his 1887-1918 adventures. Many of them are accessible online through Harvard and Princeton Universities and can be found in The Brownies: Their Book (1887) and “overseas brownies” (1899).

Cox’s story was based on the same Scottish and English folklore that Baden Powell thought of when he suggested the name Brownie for his Canadian Girl Guide. do you mean it should be?

Meanwhile, in Jaipur, India, there is a shoe company called Desimochi, or “local cobbler.”According to the official website, they are selling high end shoe products “Known for its funky designs,” you guessed it, called the Brownie. I can’t wait to see what the awakened mob does with this first-hand knowledge!

To sum it all up, brownies have nothing to do with race, religion, gender, or whatever the waking crowd has been screeching to high-heat pitches for years. , perhaps because it can lead to some hurt feelings and a misunderstanding of what the branch name really means, caught on this wave of arousal.

This is not a positive change for the organization and our society. Rather, it is a complete acquiescence to the ignorant, awakened mobs who seek to change society and history to suit their narrow vision and worldview.
