Skip to comments.Obama czar's 'homo-genda' proposed for U.S. schools
Posted on 02/11/2010 3:35:21 AM PST by Man50D
A homosexual congressman from Colorado has proposed a law critics say would give controversial federal school safety czar Kevin Jennings a longtime homosexual-rights advocate almost unlimited authority to mandate indoctrination in public schools at taxpayer expense.
"It doesn't get much more fascist than this! It's a sexual revolutionary's dream," wrote Linda Harvey of Mission America.
Under the legislation by Democrat Rep. Jared Polis, Jennings "can create pro-homosexual programs and policies to their hearts' delight," Harvey wrote.
Jennings founded the "Gay, Lesbian Straight Education Network" and now heads the office of "Safe and Drug Free Schools" at the Department of Education.
Polis' proposal would provide special protections for students who claim they are discriminated against because of their "perceived sexual orientation." The bill would call down the wrath of the federal government on offenders by classifying "actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity" alongside race, color, sex, disability or national origin as factors on which protections are based.
In a statement announcing his proposal, H.R. 4530, Polis said, "Every student has the right to an education free from harassment and violence. This bill will protect the individual freedoms of our students and enshrine the values of equality and opportunity in our classrooms."
But it actually won't, according to an analysis by Harvey. Instead, she said it will allow Jennings a virtual open door to set up whatever pro-homosexual programs he would choose.

May God have mercy on this nation.......
The fruits are taking over while we stand around allowing them to do it.
2% my butt.
Gotta ping later.
1) Continue to send their kids stoooopidly thinking that their child's government school is different.
2) Continue to believe that if we went back to some magical time ( 1960, 1940, or the little red school house) that government schools would be different.
By the 1960s when I attended school my curriculum was 100% atheistic secular in its worldview with 2 minutes of the Lord's Prayer and one scripture verse in the morning. (Big whoop!) The push for secularism was **ALWAYS** the goal of the Utopian Progressives since the mid-1800s and the curriculum has **always** been in the direction since the beginning.
3) Believe that government schools can be reformed. They can't because government schools **are** socialism. Socialism can't be reformed.
And...**ALL** government schools from the very first that opened in the min-1800s have taught children to be comfortable with taking their neighbor's money for their schooling. Well?...If the government can take money from a neighbor for schooling, why not a thousand other wants and needs.
4) Believe that getting rid of the federal Department of Education or unions will fix the government schools.
Eliminating the Department of Education or unions won't fix the government schools because the training of teachers and curriculum has **ALWAYS** been in the control of the Utopian Progressives since the mid-1800s.
5) Fail to understand that **all** government schools trash First Amendment Rights and teach **all** children to be compliant slaves of the state. ( This was the goal of the Utopian Progressives and industrialists from the beginning in the mid-1800s).
6) Fail to understand that **all** government schools teach children to think and evaluate everything in their school day from a godless point of view. The statistics show that 85% of children from active and weekly church attending families will not be active in their church 2 years after graduation from high school! On the other hand 95% of homeschoolers are active.
Conservatives must work to shut down **all** government schools. If vouchers, tax credits, and charters are used to build the infrastructure needed, the goal should always be full privatization with parents paying their tuition of their own children. Charity schools for the poor.
“school children should call in with the “pink flu” until all of this homosexual training and indoctrination stops in public schools.”
Your idea is commendable, but I wonder if it is feasible. Public schools mandate a certain number of days necessary to attend, and if the child is over that amount will deny the child credit in classes. If the child’s absence is due to illness, then documentation from medical professionals is necessary. In addition, my feeling is that most families are just not that concerned about homosexuality. They don’t approve of it, but on the other hand, they do not perceive it as any more than something a little weird. That being said, there are families who are disgusted with this ungodly promotion and despite their few numbers (here in NY anyway) should consider homeschooling. Homeschooling can be done even with a parent’s work schedule. I have several friends who homeschool their older children with video conferences via the internet. If enough of these families opt for this alternative, then perhaps some impact might be made.
The public schools of America have served so well as the boot camp for libs/marxists in the past; why give it up now!!!!!
My daughter is in college, but if I had a kid in high school, I’d simply give him/her my blessing to get up and walk out of the homo lesson. If questioned, the answer is “I’m capable of making up my own mind with regard to what is normal and acceptable behavior.”
I for one will NEVER be sympathetic or accepting of this behavior. I won’t watch shows or movies whre it’s pushed at me, I won’t have any close associations with gays, and I WON’T be told there’s something wrong with ME because of my beliefs. In short, I WON’T be told what to think. They’ve been trying for years to guilt us into acceptance, and it won’t work.
Oh, and by the way, I’ll use the word “GAY” whenever, wherever, and however I please.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Spot on, and I’ve been saying in Canada for years that the government has no business educating our kids, and that schools need to be private, along with everything else.
Unfortunately, Canada is so far down the socialist hellhole, there is no reversal, only way to freedom would be to take provinces like Alberta and Saskatchewan out of the confederation and become an independant country
Would you like a bandaid for that hemorrhage?
Gay propaganda is subtly woven throughout the curriculum from speculating on which historical figures (even historical scientists), writers, and philosophers may or may not have been gay to gay topics in biology and health and gym classes.
Kudos to those trying to reform the beast, but... well, I feel like it’s the Puritans vs the Separatists again. Some conservatives think the government schools can be reformed; some of us think they’re lost to us and we need to make sure alternatives like homeschooling and private schools remain viable.
There should be a nationwide movement to defund public schools. My schools are funded through my property tax still, pay the portion appropriate and escrow the school.
I agree...but you know what would happen. CPS called in, jail time, etc. I’m not sure that many parents have the guts to face the “forces”. The “powers that be”... know that as well...
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.
In MA, H1728 would criminalize criticism of Transgender people. For instance, if a guy in a wig and a dress goes into the Ladies Room at Malden City Hall where my 76 year old mother works and she complains. She could face a $2,500 fine and a year in jail. State Senator Richard Tisei is running for Lt. Governor with Charlie Baker on the Republican ticket. Tisei is a sponsor of the bill and recently came out of the closet after announcing running for state wide office. Whoever aids or incites such criticism is also subject to prosecution. That would include the column I am going to write about it next week. I fail to see how Charlie Baker intends to win the Governorship without the Womens’ Vote. Men in wigs and dresses intruding upon women is a violation of the rights of women.
When you write that column, if you can do it without risking compromising your screen name, post a thread on it and ping wagglebee or little jeremiah for the moral absolutes ping list or DirtyHarryY2K for the Homosexual agenda list.
So for the sake of your agenda you would risk having your children placed in foster “care”? Why not just take them out of school and legally homeschool them?
Cause he's a lib, no doubt.
The problem they don't see with this is the opportunity for abuse that it opens the doors on.
ANY man can claim to be transgendered and go in a women's room if he wants when all he's looking for in reality is kicks and giggles, or sexually harassing women. Then when they complain, THEY'RE the guilty party and he can file charges against them and make their lives hell after violating them in some way and getting his kicks out of it.
Those guys don't have to actually rape someone to violate them. It can be done verbally or psychologically. And what about the young girls in there if he decides to expose himself?
This is just so wrong on so many levels.
My agenda isn’t leaving my children vulnerable to social services. Truancy charges will. The other poster wasn’t saying the something shouldn’t be done. They were saying that most parents would disobey the law over it leaving themselves open to losing their children even if it was short term.
“that most parents would disobey”
Should read WOULDN’T DISOBEY.
You have totally misunderstood my post. I am all for you pulling your kids out in protest. I was just saying that when you do that, you should file homeschool paperwork so you will not receive truancy charges. After the school board has conceded to the will of the parents, you can reenroll them if you like. The other poster had a point, there may not be many parents willing to go along. If that is the case having your kids out of school illegally will result in truancy which had resulted in children being removed from the home.
” Id simply give him/her my blessing to get up and walk out of the homo lesson. If questioned, the answer is Im capable of making up my own mind with regard to what is normal and acceptable behavior.”
There is a lot of wisdom in that but it requires your child have the disposition to do so. I would not only give my child the blessing to to it I would convey that I would be disappointed if they did not!
And the thing I would tell them to say is “I can disagree with a life style choice and not bully the people who make it, so Ill be in the library studying. If you have a problem call my parents..”
Come on people. We have the might and the numbers why don’t we have the will to turn back the tide on this crap?
You may want to rephrase that...
Numbers are worth nothing without leadership to direct them.
But we expect nothing from our leaders, and nothing is precisely what we get from them...
Just part of the Gramsci plan to take over our culture in order to rule us:
“These efforts draw upon a blueprint composed by Italian
Communist theoretician Antonio Gramsci (photo), who understood
that the creation of the total state requires the seizure of the
“mediating institutions” that insulate the individual from the
power of the government — the family, organized religion, and
so forth — and a systematic redefinition of the culture in
order to sustain the new political order. The battle cry of
Gramsci’s disciples is: “Capture the culture!”
Actually, the threat of homeschooling is more effective. If you simply pull your child out for a few days, they lose a little money and get it back when they come back, and then they’ll continue on their merry way, trying again at a later date.
Homeschooling cuts the funds completely.
And christianhomeschoolmommaof3 is right. Pull your kids out without a valid reason, and you’re risking a visit from CPS or whatever they call it where you live, and the school district is as likely to do it as not.
And the thinking that if enough people participate, they couldn’t call on everyone doesn’t hole much water. First of all, you’d have to know that you could get enough parents to commit to it to be effective, and I doubt that that is going to happen. The other thing is, there are too many other ways that the school district could get back besides that.
The problem is that they are teaching it in the lower grades. Books like Heather Has Two Mommies,How Would You Feel if Your Dad Was Gay, King & King, One Dad, Two Dads, Brown Dad, Blue Dads etc. And the movie, It's Ok to Be Gay....They are teaching our children this cr@p in the lower grades. When Sassy was in school I had a long talk with her teacher & told her my child would go out of the room if she was being taught anything with gay in it. All movies had to have a signed permission slip etc. Now I home school. I love it & so does Sassy.
Really good points...I had no idea they started all that crap so early. No wonder so many parents are turning to the home school solution. Good for you.
Besides the gay issues in school, I also forbid Al Gore & his movie to be shown. I was a class mother & I got to see 1st hand how my daughter's school worked. There was no real plan for a terror attack. They made a big stink over parents having background checks & thankfully I am bonded. After quite a bit of help from the FReeper home schoolers I made the leap & never looked back. We do use a online school for days when i am busy but we enjoy learning together & no school is going to tell my child that being gay is ok.
