The Guardian reports:

"A Cub Scout was kicked out of his group after he questioned a Colorado Republican lawmaker (state senator Vicki Marble) about gun control and contentious comments she made about African Americans."

Yup. This in an event where the scouts asked a politician to speak, and asked to kids to come up with questions for them.

The reason the kid was booted? Too political.

What else are you supposed to ask a politician who is invited due to their political position except political questions?

Children are supposed to earnestly ask a politician if the US is the greatest country in the whole wide world.

Whether red, white or blue is the politician's favorite color is on the more compelling section of the menu.

That kid who was booted out of one troop was invited into a different one.

he deserves a special merit badge. The other troop should be ashamed for what they did to him.

Talk about First Amendment rights being squashed.

It is beginning to look more and more like Germany late 1930's. This kid will never be allowed into the Nazi Youth group now.
