Skip to comments.Do safe schools require an iron fisting?

Ive received a lot of e-mail asking why I havent written about the controversy over Kevin Jennings, Barack Obamas safe schools czar. To be honest, the story is so shocking that I havent quite grasped how to approach it. Jennings ran an outfit called Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) from its inception in 1995 until last year. During that time, as Jim Hoft at Big Government has detailed, GLSEN offered sex education seminars to young teenagers within the framework of public education that went way, way beyond explanations of human biology and disease transmission. According to multiple sources, GLSEN discussed fisting, oral sex etiquette, and other techniques to 14-year-olds, until the program got exposed by local Massachusetts media, and the instructor got fired as a scapegoat. Jim has the audio from one of the seminars, discussing the proper hand position for fisting:

Is there ANYONE in this administration that isn’t a commie,tax cheat,terrorist apologist,or pervert?
No!! Thanks for your work, BTW, on this travesty.
Ed M is a fine writer & a great guy, but he got this:
“as Jim Hoft at Big Government”
a little skewed- Jim’s here:
And Jim has done a 1st class job of exposing this gawd-awfullness.
pissant, you may recall I was a bit of a Hellraiser in my youth, and this garbage disgusts, repels, and alienates even the likes of me...
Remember what Duh!1 said?
“Judge me by the people I surround myself with...”
Read it and weep, America.
This is foul. And we will get this scumbag fired!
I’m not comfortable with the title of the article...
Then you should REALLY be uncomfortable with the curriculum.
I’ve been sending these out to my list, and this is one of the best and clearest yet. For one thing, no one else seems to have pointed out that Jennings was hooked up with GLSEN right up until he joined the Obama bandwagon.
Many of my liberal correspondents probably think that it’s OK to do a little gay tolerance educating in the schools, but I doubt if they are aware of what this now involves.
People need to know that this is NOT about tolerance, or refraining from bullying gays.
And just think....we thought the Clinton Administration was bad! Ah....the good ole days.
I’m really starting to wonder if someone is deliberately testing our patience here. Mine can’t be tested, however, since it is non-existent.
I agree 100%, BUT the list of these perverts is endless. I want to see the number 1 pervert who knowingly nominated all them FIRED! Anyone who believes the one did not know any of this, is burying their head in the sand.
I remember when this story came out. Here on FR, it was discussed. A lot of us were told massresistence is a wacko site, those who run it are nuts, it isn’t happening in my childs school, oh it’s just MA, they are all wacky up there, write MA off, etc etc etc.
THAT is why this has progressed to this point. Far too many people writing it off as wacky and burying their heads in the sand. This is the very saddest of times I have had to say to those folks I told ya so.
I pray that the stupid party wakes up and runs as many conservatives in 2010 as possible. Who cares if they don't all get in, a good number will.
More on Jennings:

In 1995, Kevin Jennings gave a speech to a homosexual group bragging how they had tricked Gov. Weld and the Massachusetts Legislature into funding homosexual programs by framing the issue claiming that it was all about safety.
- Framing the Issue in Massachusetts
by Kevin Jennings, founder of GLSEN
From a speech entitled Winning the Culture War
presented at the
Human Rights Campaign Fund Leadership Conference
March 5, 1995
If the Radical Right can succeed in portraying us as preying on children, we will lose. Their language promoting homosexuality is one example is laced with subtle and not-so- subtle innuendo that we are after their kids. We must learn from the abortion struggle, where the clever claiming of the term pro- life allowed those who opposed abortion on demand to frame the issue to their advantage, to make sure that we do not allow ourselves to be painted into a corner before the debate even begins.
In Massachusetts the effective reframing of this issue was the key to the success of the Governors Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth. We immediately seized upon the opponents calling card safetyand explained how homophobia represents a threat to students safety by creating a climate where violence, name- calling, health problems, and suicide are common. Titling our report Making Schools Safe for Gay and Lesbian Youth, we automatically threw our opponents onto the defensive and stole their best line of attack. This framing short-circuited their arguments and left them back-pedaling from day one.
Finding the effective frame for your community is the key to victory. It must be linked to universal values that everyone in the community has in common. In Massachusetts, no one could speak up against our frame and say, Why, yes, I do think students should kill themselves: this allowed us to set the terms for debate.
In Massachusetts, we made creating an environment where youth could speak out our number one priority. We know that, confronted with real-live stories of youth who had suffered from homophobia, our opponents would have to attack people who had already been victimized once, which put them in a bully position from which it would be hard to emerge looking good. More importantly, we made sure these youth met with elected officials so that, the next time these officials had to vote on something, there would be a specific face and story attached to the issue. We wanted them to have an actual kid in mind when they had to cast their votes. We won the final vote in the Senate 33-7 as a result.
He ought to be flogged in public, tarred and feathered, and run out of town on a rail...
You know me- I don't give much of a XXX what consenting adults do in private-- but that's the key- grownups only, leave the damn children out of it, all of it, and don't make a public spectacle of your self.
This garbage is beyond vile- it is nearly unspeakable. What in the Hell ails these people?
