Ben Carson has plans to launch his own version of the Boy Scouts called the Little Patriots.
According to The Washington PostCarson founded the think-tank-like organization, American Cornerstone Institute, which he calls a “ DIY tank ” rather than retiring after serving as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under former President Donald Trump.
“The concept of retiring, relaxing, playing golf, playing the piano, it all seemed very appealing,” Carson told the paper. And then I started thinking about the children. All children. ‘

While thinking about the kids, Carson, who had a successful career as a pediatric brain surgeon, came up with the idea of creating a Boy Scout-like organization called Little Patriots.
“It will be like the Boy Scouts,” he said, referring to the Little Patriots program. “But heavily exposed to the real history of America.”
According to the Post, Carson’s new American Cornerstone Institute will allow him to travel across the US to participate in roundtable discussions on conservative values.
Carson did not provide details of what the program would consist of, but he did provide an example that seemed to refer to the removal of Southern statues and monuments.
“You probably find that when ISIS enters a place, they destroy history; they destroy the monuments, ”he told the Post. “History gives you identity,” he added.
It also turns out that Carson and his team have already started recruiting young boys.

In a video shared on Carson’s Facebook page in February, a young boy is seen reciting the pledge of allegiance and saying, “God bless America!”
Carson wrote in the video caption, “I started the American Cornerstone Institute because I care about the future of this country. One of the ways we can make America a better place is to ensure that the next generation has a deep sense of patriotism and love for the country.
In the near future, ACI will announce a program to help with this. For now, enjoy this video of one of our first little patriots. ‘
But if the program was anything like the Boy Scouts, it would have youth programs in the US for young people between the ages of 5 and 21.
According to the Boy Scouts’ website, the organization “ offers the nation’s premier youth program for character development and values-based leadership training. ”
Last month, the Boy Scouts of America filed a bankruptcy reorganization plan that provided for continued operations of the local forces and national adventure camps, but leaves many unanswered questions about how it will resolve tens of thousands of sexual abuse claims from former Boy Scouts .
Last year, the organization, based in Irving, Texas, sought bankruptcy protection in an effort to stop hundreds of lawsuits and establish a compensation fund for men who were harassed by Scoutmasters or other leaders as youth decades ago.
As of this week, the estimated value of the approximately 84,000 sexual abuse claims filed in bankruptcy is approximately $ 103 billion.
