Scott Baker from Breitbart-TV.com and Co-Host of The B-Cast submitted this shocking report today on Obamas deviant Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings.
-Warning on Content
I was recently approached by a team of independent researchers that I have known for some time and have come to trust. They prepared this report involving Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings and the organization he founded, GLSEN, and asked that I find a way to help draw attention to what they uncovered. Knowing that Gateway Pundit has followed Kevin Jennings since his appointment, as we have on The B-Cast (here, here, and here), and on Breitbart.tv (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here), I felt this would be an appropriate place for this report.
Warning: The following material is very explicit.
Co-Host, The B-Cast
Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings was the founder, and for many years, Executive Director of an organization called the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). GLSEN started essentially as Jennings personal project and grew to become the culmination of his lifes work. And he was chosen by President Obama to be the nations Safe Schools Czar primarily because he had founded and led GLSEN (scroll for bio).
GLSENs stated mission is to empower gay youth in the schools and to stop harassment by other students. It encourages the formation of Gay Student Alliances and condemns the use of hateful words. GLSEN also strives to influence the educational curriculum to include materials which the group believes will increase tolerance of gay students and decrease bullying. To that end, GLSEN maintains a recommended reading list of books that it claims furthers our mission to ensure safe schools for all students. In other words, these are the books that GLSENs directors think all kids should be reading: gay kids should read them to raise their self-esteem, and straight kids should read them in order to become more aware and tolerant and stop bullying gay kids. Through GLSENs online ordering system, called GLSEN BookLink, featured prominently on their Web site, teachers can buy the books to use as required classroom assignments, or students can buy them to read on their own.
According to GLSENs own press releases from the period during which its recommended reading list was developed, the organizations three areas of focus were creating educational resources, public policy agenda, [and] student organizing programs; in other words, the reading list (chief among its educational resources) was of prime importance in GLSENs efforts to influence the American educational system.
The list is divided into three main categories: books recommended for grades K-6; books recommended for grades 7-12; and books for teachers. (The books on the list span all genres: fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, even poetry.)
Out of curiosity to see exactly what kind of books Kevin Jennings and his organization think American students should be reading in school, our team chose a handful at random from the over 100 titles on GLSENs grades 7-12 list, and began reading through.
What we discovered shocked us. We were flabbergasted. Rendered speechless.
We were unprepared for what we encountered. Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that werent merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between pre-schoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, semen flying through the air. One memoir even praised becoming a prostitute as a way to increase ones self-esteem. Above all, the books seemed to have less to do with promoting tolerance than with an unabashed attempt to indoctrinate students into a hyper-sexualized worldview.
We knew that unless we carefully documented what we were reading, the public would have a hard time accepting it. Mere descriptions on our part could not convey the emotional gut reaction one gets when seeing what Kevin Jennings wants kids to read as school assignments. So we began scanning pages from each of the books, and then made exact transcriptions of the relevant passages on each page.
Are we exaggerating, or misconstruing quotes that could be interpreted a different way? No: Read the passages below and judge for yourself. Theres no wiggle room. The language is explicit, the intent clear.
To be specific, the books we read were:
The Full Spectrum
Reflections of a Rock Lobster
Passages of Pride
Growing Up Gay/Growing Up Lesbian
The Order of the Poison Oak
In Your Face
Mamas Boy, Preachers Son
Love & Sex: Ten Stories of Truth
We can only vouch for whats in these 11 books, since these are the only ones weve read through. Are there other books on the GLSEN reading list that are similarly outrageous? We cant say for sure, but it seems very likely. What you see excerpted below is probably only the tip of the iceberg.
Let it be clear: This issue has nothing to do with gayness or straightness, which is irrelevant to this report. The point proven here is that the GLSEN reading list promotes the sexualization of children in general, regardless of the orientation.
And this is not about censorship: Its about deciding what constitutes appropriate reading material for children. Were perfectly OK with these books existing and being read by adults; we only start to worry when these books are assigned to children. All sorts of books are excluded from school reading lists, for all sorts of reasons. Even many books once considered classics are now considered off-limits due to language or attitudes now deemed inappropriate. And yet, according to Kevin Jennings and GLSEN, books about a 13-year-old getting my cock sucked and my ass fucked or about a teenager enjoying the exquisite bitter taste of his friends semen are not just acceptable, theyre highly recommended. As GLSENs own site says, All BookLink items are reviewed by GLSEN staff for quality and appropriateness of content. Really? (Note: GLSEN does advise adults to review content for suitability.)
Although GLSEN does not address how books get added to its list, its hard to imagine that they are chosen by low-level staffers or volunteers, with no oversight. Since the list of recommended books is one of the organizations primary tools (The GLSEN BookLink, an online library of recommended resources, along with the Safe Space program remain cornerstones of GLSENs education work. source), its likely that the books were chosen carefully. Kevin Jennings stepped down as Executive Director last year after leading GLSEN since its inception, but every single book mentioned in this report was added to the list while Jennings was in charge (dates are given for each titles addition to the list). Therefore, its reasonable to believe he was aware of the addition of these works especially since most were added when GLSEN was still quite small and the Executive Director had a hands-on role in daily operations.
Below you will find dozens of excerpts taken from books on the GLSEN Booklink recommended reading list for grades 7-12 (i.e. for children between the ages of 12 and 17). To prove that these books are indeed recommended by GLSEN for children, click on each books title to see its individual listing on the GLSEN Web site. And to prove that each excerpt is transcribed exactly as it appears in each book, click on the page numbers or the small images along the left to see scans taken directly of the book pages in question. (Ellipses ["..."] indicate unrelated passages not included in some of the transcriptions; click on the full-page scans to see the complete extended quotes.) Each passage is preceded by a brief summary, given in italics.
You decide for yourself if you think these are appropriate for kids as young as 12 years old to read. And then decide if you think the man who headed the organization responsible for recommending these books to children should be in charge of school safety in this country.
Keep in mind that, although the material below has been deemed by Kevin Jennings and GLSEN to be appropriate for children, some of the excerpts contain explicit language and pornographic descriptions, so if you dont want to see such things, stop reading now.

Czar Wars cont’d...
What a bunch of filthy scumbags. Thanks President bam-bam. Nice hopey cahngy you got going on jerk.
He should be in jail, instead he’s in the White House.
Damn. I am rarely suprised by anything anymore ... but I will admit to some shock on this one.
Oh, Em, Gee!
I CANNOT believe what I am reading!
Ozero stated that we would be able to tell who he was by the people he surrounded himself.
Chickens coming home to roost.
This evil perv Jennings should be taken care of the way it was done to pedophiles a hundred years ago.
Maybe some patriot will oblige.
This will go nuclear. Just watch.
Why is the hell is it stuck in “Bloggers & Personal”? That’s what I want to know.
This is unbelievably explosive.
I hope so! I sent it to all my email list. Hope you do the same. And post it on all the blogs you know. Our kids are in GREAT danger!!!
From your keyboard to God’s ears. These demons are trying to instigate a war.
Go to MASSRESISTANCE.ORG and read more about this. Be prepared for very graphic accurate information. These folks in Mass. have been fighting this battle for years.
Ping. This oughtta cement the case for homeschooling for most parents. Probably even most Liberal ones.
Another day, another reason.
You would think, but it probably won’t.
Please, if you maintain a ping list, ping it now.
You will not believe what you are looking at.
This is radioactive. Kevin Jennings is toast, and Obama is now officially a one-termer.
p.s. Here is a tiny url to make it easy to share:
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
The very small excerpts from these books are bad enough. I can’t imagine reading them all.
This needs to be spread far and wide. If you know anyone else with a ping list that would qualify for being pinged, let them know.
This article technically qualifies for the Another Reason to Homeschool list, but in light of the seriousness of the material and agenda, I felt that homeschoolers ought to be aware of what is going on in this case.
If you know of anyone who is wavering about homeschooling, this just might push them over the edge. Please let people know about this travesty.
The Order of the Poison Oak.
On GLSEN’s own site they mention how the counselor tries to have unprotected sex with the kids..
