Obama’s Safe Schools Czar Advocated ‘Queering Elementary Education’ Wednesday, October 28, 2009 By Fred Lucas, Staff Writer

( – President Barack Obama’s safe schools czar wrote a foreword to a book in 1999 that called for elementary school children to explore their sexual identities, for teachers to incorporate homosexual themes in grades K-5, for discarding a “hetero-normative” approach to education and for “acknowledging children as sexual beings.”

Kevin Jennings, now the assistant deputy secretary for education who heads the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, began the foreword to Queering Elementary Education: Advancing the Dialogue about Sexualities and Schooling (Rowan & Littlefield Publishers) by writing about the Columbine school shooting in Colorado and comparing it to the beating-death of Matthew Shepard in Wyoming and, from there, to the issue of intolerance in schools.

“We remain silent in the face of intolerance,” wrote Jennings, then president of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, an organization he founded. “We do little to teach the values of equality and justice. We simply fail to set any kind of expectation at all that these young people must respect each other even (especially?) when differences among them are vast and profound.”

Anyone who teaches a five year old about anal sex needs to be dragged off into an alley and shot.

None of the media, Fox included, is going to report on what exactly is meant by "safe schools." Again, the gay right crowd co-opts the English language to their own purposes. Who in their right mind doesn't want a safe environment for their children in school?

Alas, "safe schools" is simply the codeword for teaching acceptance of deviant behavior.
Safe Schools Coalition

When my husband taught high school in San Diego, all the classrooms were required to have a pink triangle on the door, with words (in large print) indicating that classroom was a "safe place" to find sanctuary. In verrryyyy small print was the notation that it was meant to protect only those of the gay, lesbian, transgender, etc. persuasion.

So we really shouldn't be surprised that the Safe Schools Czar want to promote deviant behavior. That's what a "safe school" is to these people.

How about comparing this killing to the killing of Matthew Shephard. Little Jesse Dirkhising was killed by two gay men and his death was almost totally ignored by the media.

Jesse Dirkhising’s Deliverance
By Joseph Farah /
The case of 13-year-old Jesse Dirkhising continues to haunt me since I first wrote about it weeks ago — before anyone else in the national press. The details of the crime in Prairie Grove, Ark., Sept. 26, were chilling enough before I read more than I cared to read in the affidavit filed the next day. This is not an easy story to write about nor read about. Be warned. Joshua Macave Brown and David Don Carpenter have pleaded innocent to charges of capital murder and six counts of rape in Jesse’s torturous death. The pair is charged with drugging the boy, raping him repeatedly and killing him by asphyxiation. If you have the stomach for it, here are the shocking details of what the police investigation found. As I wrote last month about this case: “Remember how the nation stood riveted to the details of a hideous murder that took place in Wyoming when a homosexual was tortured to death? Never mind that the crime had little or nothing to do with the victim’s sexual proclivities. Uh-uh. That didn’t matter. This was a hate crime. New laws were needed. New brainwashing programs must be introduced into the schools. New sensitivity outreach projects were required by all media outlets. Bill Clinton sounded off. Janet Reno chimed in.
