Obama’s Czars Will Queer the 2010 Elections

Before I saw the video below, I had written:

Obama probably didn’t personally choose this sleaze to be an Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education. Appointments at that level are surely done further down the food chain than the Oval Office.

Boy, was I wrong:

Like most people, I forget how the-pay-to-play game works. This moral midget raised a whole lot of New York money for Obama so of course he gets that appointment.

The reality of Kevin Jennings has been around for a long time. Conservative bloggers have been complaining ever since they got downwind of him last year. Parents of school-age children in California and Minnesota have battled him for over a decade. In contrast, Huff&Puff and other assorted loose & liberal folks have defended him — much the same as they now defend the child-raper Roman Polanski — i.e., with a straight face and with robust self-righteousness.

How long has the information on Jennings been out there? Probably since before Bush’s first term. See this 2003 essay in City Journal which details the concerted efforts to push queer theory all the way down into kindergarten:
- - - - - - - - -
A relatively recent arrival on college campuses, queer theory has swiftly dominated the myriad university gender-studies programs and spread its influence to other disciplines, too, “queering” everything under the sun. Type “queering” into’s search engine, and up comes Queering the Middle Ages, Queering the Color Line, Queering India, and many other books, many from prestigious academic presses.

It would be tempting to dismiss queer theory as just another intellectual fad, with little influence beyond the campus, if not for gay activists’ aggressive effort to introduce the theory’s radical view of sexuality into the public schools. Leading the effort is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Educational Network (GLSEN, pronounced “glisten”), an advocacy group founded a decade ago [1993] to promote homosexual issues in the public schools. It now boasts 85 chapters, four regional offices, and some 1,700 student clubs, called “gay/straight alliances,” that it has helped form in schools across the country.

GLSEN often presents itself as a civil rights organization [but]…it is, in fact, a radical organization that has clearly embraced the queer-theory worldview. It seeks to transform the culture and instruction of every public school, so that children will learn to equate “heterosexism” — the favoring of heterosexuality as normal — with other evils like racism and sexism and will grow up pondering their sexual orientation and the fluidity of their sexual identity.


Nor is it ever too early to begin stamping out heterosexism. A 2002 GLSEN conference in Boston held a seminar on “Gender in the Early Childhood Classroom” that examined ways of setting “the tone for nontraditional gender role play” for preschoolers…

…a 1999 book, Queering Elementary Education,with a foreword by GLSEN executive director Kevin Jennings, offers essays on “Locating a Place for Gay and Lesbian Themes in Elementary Reading, Writing and Talking” and “How to Make ‘Boys’ and ‘Girls’ in the Classroom”-the scare quotes showing the queer theorist’s ever present belief that categorizing gender is a political act.

The book in question was also endorsed by that famous terrorist/bomber and college educator, Bill Ayers.

For comprehensiveness, nothing beats a GLSEN-recommended resource manual distributed to all K-12 public schools in Saint Paul and Minneapolis. The manual presents an educational universe that filters everything through an LGBT lens…

This philosophy is morally repellent. The narcissistic bias, the lie they want us to buy — that we are untethered from our heritage, that we can make up our own “narrative” as we go along — is pernicious and evil, especially when force-fed to children. Obama, who has already made up several narratives (“Dreams”) of his own, with unacknowledged assistance from others, is a metrosexually ambiguous example of the underlying philosophy of queer theory: we are who and what we say we are, unbound by the past and dedicated to a Utopian future. “We are the ones”, et cetera ad nauseam. But you can bet he won't permit any queer theory philosophy to be taught to his children. Not for a few more years, anyway.

Can Jennings be removed from the Department of Education? I hope so. However, should Obama turn a deaf ear to outraged parents’ calls for his removal, then the existence of Jennings in his present place of employment will simply be another card to play in the Congressional elections next year.

Has your Congressman spoken out for Jennings’ removal? If not, then in 2010, Jennings becomes a liability for your Congressman. If he waits too long to make his protest known, it will be too little too late.

Obama needs a Democrat Congress, yet his outside-the-box-don’t-need-Congressional-approval-appointments have often been these scandal-ridden mediocrities who paid for their seat. Obama’s overtly cynical pay-off to Jennings is a dangerous ploy that will culminate in a large throw-the-bums-out furor next year.

Our president’s skill set does not include bipartisanship. It also doesn’t seem to include a salesman’s intuition if you judge his words and behavior in Copenhagen. Thus he needs Pelosi and Reed to stay where they are. Given what we’ve seen so far, he doesn’t appear to understand the basics of political gamesmanship. Saying “I won” isn’t going to cut it.

Putting a sleazebag from NAMBLA in place at the Department of Education is going to cost him dearly. Leaving him there is political suicide.

Fox News obtained a tape in which Jennings boasts of counselling a 15 year old student as follows:

In 2000, Mr. Jennings gave a talk to the Iowa chapter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, an advocacy group that promotes homosexuality in schools. On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure "to use a condom" when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings' own description in his 1994 book, "One Teacher in 10." In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student's concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old "left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated."

...When some details about the case became public, Mr. Jennings threatened to sue another teacher who called his failure to report the statutory rape "unethical."

Media Matters seeking to defend Obama's newest appointee has since produced evidence the boy was 16 at the time but it appears Jennings thought he was 15 and said what he said anyway.

Also note the constant misinformation by gay activists like Jennings with his book "1 in 10 teachers". Even with the alphabet soup group, you do not get up to the 10% figure for sexual dysphorias. That 10% of the population is gay claim derives from the thoroughly discredited work by self-serving bisexual Kinsey on prison populations. Better self-reporting studies in the general population place the figure at 2% plus or minus 1%.

Anyone who uses the 10% figure is really ignorant or lying to gain more clout.

Sorry for leaving out a pertinent detail. The "older man" in the case above was someone the teen met at a bus station washroom with whom he subsequently had a one night stand. So Jennings the teacher was very pleased he had launched another kid into anonymous promiscuous sex (and a high risk of AIDS even with a condom).

Since the promiscuous kind of homosexuality (hundreds of partners annually) can be thought of as an addiction, Jennings is hardly suitable for his new title Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools.

Hmm, I wonder if Jennings read the following and decided to apply it to gender:

Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever.

We had the same problem here in New Zealand with the last government - not only were they inept, they were corrupt as well (a lethal combination). It took us nine years to kick them out, but their baleful, perverse legacy lives on in the bureaucracy and the education system and will take a long time to turn around. America, make your moves NOW.

It is precisely this attempt by homosexual organizations to drill down into primary public education with their agenda that has obliged me to completely recalibrate what was once my own whole-hearted support for gay rights.

Any continuation of this gay March to Atlanta will provoke some exceptionally hostile reactions from myself. I can only imagine that many others feel even more strongly about this than I do.

Dymphna said...


"Recalibration" is a good term to use. This guy comes from the NAMBLA, toxic swamps. But one cannot assign all homosexuals to that swamp.

They have damaged the reputation of gays in general and that is unfortunate. But those who put their doctrine ahead of everything else do that to their cause. I don't judge Christianity by Jeremiah Wright or Pat Robertson, just to name two.

Nor do I judge all Democrats by the actions of Code Pink or Michael Moore and his buddy, Jimmah from the Ummah.

Thank you for that affirmation but, while I agree, my own revulsion at having pre-teens being exposed to "sexual flexibility" simply prohibits me from giving any further support to gay causes until they back the f**k away from attempting to indoctrinate school children with their "Johnny has Two Mommies", bull$h!t.

I am sincerely interested in your own reaction to this notion.

As someone who has ardently backed gay rights, it is pissing the Holy Hell© out of me to see people who have benefited from my passionate defense seeking to indoctrinate schoolchildren with what I consider to be an adult agenda.

Again, your own interpretation would be of immense value here.

Simply put, homosexuality is a genetic box canyon. Advocating it is a way of encouraging an end to the only enduring human legacy there is, namely; children.

While I am not of a mind to penalize all citizens who do not procreate in the name of furthering Social Security, I also will not tolerate any further assaults upon the nuclear family's proper place in our world's biological history.

Zenster --

One of my very best friends of almost 40 years happens to be gay. He is neither a radical nor an advocate for NAMBLA or any of the other "queer" causes. He has a moderately conservative temperament, and in fact reads this blog.

He was my good friend for 6 or 7 years before he realized that he was gay and eventually came out of the closet. At that point I had a choice between accepting him as he was, or repudiating him as a friend -- so of course it was no real choice. In addition to him I have encountered a number of other gay men whom I liked and found to be good, decent people.

Unfortunately, even "regular" homosexuals are often attracted to very young boys. Not generally pre-pubescent (that's a different sort of perversion), but much younger than most heterosexual people could possibly accept as being within normal limits.

Also unfortunately, gay men have a tendency towards promiscuity (as do straight men, but we are somewhat constrained by the responses of the objects of our attention). The AIDS epidemic would never have reached the level that it did in Western countries had it not been for the promiscuous behavior of homosexuals.

Those two unfortunate facts are glossed over and even covered up by those who advocate for "gay rights". But they are truem and are emblematic of why indiscriminate and open-ended "tolerance" is dangerous for the general welfare.

As a matter of interest, some of the most extreme among the political activists in the "queer" movement refer to heterosexuals as "breeders". That is, we are at best a necessary evil, and exist simply to provide fresh material for homosexuals.

Gay rights are not about rights at all - they're about beating down the majority with new laws in Soviet fashion.

It seems as though the "moderate" gays who do not demand queering of school curricula down to kindergarten level are insignificant in number and/or impotent in their community as are the putative moderate Muslims and conservative blacks. The radicals run the show and when non-gay white infidels try to counter them, they get called homophobes or racist for their stance.

Still, at least there are a hand full of voices brave enough to contradict their extremists publicly among blacks and Muslims (usually ex-Muslims). However, gays hardly ever perform this public service.

There was one Canadian gay man from the West coast as I remember it who once spoke up and corroborated the suspicion that many male gays look on schools as grooming centers for future prospects and shouldn't be allowed anywhere near other people's children. Gays talk about this kind of thing all the time of course among themselves, but won't break ranks.

The gentleman who was an exception sank back into obscurity. Probably his life had been made very uncomfortable.

I haven't come across another truth teller in the gay community. If anyone knows of an individual or site that does this, I'd be interested in hearing about it. Such insiders are immune from the shouts of homophobe that shut down any non-gay providing the same information but are treated as traitors by their own community.

The blacks and Muslims who speak up in the public sphere about problems in their community and withstand this shunning are truly strong.
