Gateway Pundit has the all the latest revelations about Obama’s outrageous and offensive choice for “safe schools czar”.
To recap the “fisting” controversy:
During the 2000 conference, workshop leaders led a “youth only, ages 14-21″ session that offered lessons in “fisting” a dangerous sexual practice. During the same workshop an activist asked 14 year-old students, “Spit or swallow?… Is it rude?” The unbelievable audio clip is posted here.
Here’s the thing. Maybe I’ve been behind the curve, but I was under the impression that Kevin Jennings wasn’t even present at this conference. At least, that is what some of his defenders had argued. He wasn’t there…he wasn’t the one doing the fisting demonstrations! But the fact that the organization he founded and led, was engaging in activities like this was enough for me. Either he had lost control of his organization and was completely incompetent, or he consented and agreed with it. I tended to believe the latter, but neither choice was acceptable to me for an adviser to the President.
It turns out that he was the keynote speaker of this conference:
Barack Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” was the keynote speaker at the GLSEN/Boston Conference at Tufts University in 2000. High school students at the conference learned about fisting and watersports from the GLSEN activists. Jennings is seen here holding the conference program. (Via Mass Resistance)
Unfortunately for GLSEN, undercover journalists with Mass Resistance recorded these outrageous sessions at Tufts University. The audio was later leaked to a local radio station. This created such an uproar that GLSEN leaders were forced to apologize for their disgusting behavior.
Despite the controversy, Barack Obama’s Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings and his GLSEN organization did nothing to clean up their act. In fact in 2001 activists handed out “fisting kits” to the children and teachers who attended the GLSEN conference.
But that’s not all. The children who attended Kevin Jennnings’ GLSEN 2005 Conference also left with their own “Little Black Book – Queer in the 21st Century”.
You’ll have to go to Gateway Pundit’s site to view the totally inappropriate and disgusting booklet. It’s not clear how many kids actually went home with the books.
The Boston Globe had a report about the incident at the time, after a watchdog group had brought the booklet to the media’s attention. As would be expected, GLSEN feigned surprise that such a thing was being distributed at one of their conferences.:
The ”Little Black Book,” produced by the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, is targeted at 18-and-older gay men, according to the committee. The book uses vivid descriptions and colloquial terms to describe the ways HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases can be prevented and spread.
A Fenway Community Health employee brought the pamphlets along with other materials and put them on the table by mistake, said Chris Viveiros, a spokesman for Fenway Community Health.
”Fenway Community Health regrets accidentally making available a small number of copies of the Little Black Book, an HIV-prevention publication for gay and bisexual men over the age of 18, at an event where young people were present,” said Dr. Stephen Boswell, Fenway Community Health’s president and CEO.
Sean Haley, executive director of the education network, which sponsored the conference, added: ”We have very clear policies that sexually explicit material of any kind will not be made available at the conference. Had I seen the book, I would have asked them to put it away.”
At the start of the event, Haley said, network officials scanned each of the 10 tables it had rented, for $35 apiece, to outside groups. He said nobody saw the pamphlet at the time. ”We’re just going to have to be more rigorous in our review of materials,” he said.
Kevin Jennings was the national executive director or GLSEN at the time. Haley must have been the local executive director. And don’t tell me that neither of them were aware that explicit materials like this booklet and “fisting kits” were being distributed and discussed at GLSEN conferences. Only ten tables, and somehow this book was missed? Please.
William Lupini, Brookline school superintendent, said the school system agreed to host the event on the condition that material would be age-appropriate.
”We’re disappointed that we laid out what we thought were pretty clear and easy-to-follow conditions and that they weren’t adhered to,” Lupini said yesterday.
Again. Kevin Jennings is either grossly incompetent and careless, or completely complicit, and I think it’s the latter.
Michelle Malkin is still on the GLSEN corporate sponsor case:
