Obama school-‘safety’ chief: How to jam homosexuality
‘If Radical Right can succeed in portraying us as preying on children, we will lose’

President Obama’s choice to monitor school safety once boasted that he introduced homosexual advocacy into the school system in Massachusetts by manipulating the message presented to lawmakers.

The revelations about Kevin Jennings, who was named assistant deputy secretary for the office of Safe & Drug Free Schools in the U.S. Department of Education, come just as several of Obama’s “czars” have come under scrutiny for their actions, opinions and affiliations.

Technically, Jennings is not one of Obama’s “czars,” who are special advisers to the president accountable to no one but the president. Jennings was named to a post in the Department of Education. However, his hiring did not require legislative oversight, such as the Senate vetting process required for other appointees.

Jennings is the founder and former executive director of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network which “works to make schools safe for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,” according to the government announcement of his appointment.

In his position, he’s responsible for oversight of programs that involve “safety” for public schools across the nation.

In 1995, he gave a speech in which he described how he has used the concept of “safety” in schools to promote homosexual advocacy in public schools in Massachusetts. He gave a speech called “Winning the Culture War” at the Human Rights Campaign Fund Leadership Conference on March 5 of that year.
In the speech, Jennings described how he was concerned about being described as promoting homosexuality so he chose to campaign on the idea of “safety” instead.
*Excerpts have been posted on the website of MassResistance, where chief Brian Camenker has worked to oppose the demands of homosexual activists.*

“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.”

He continued, “In Massachusetts the effective reframing of this issue was the key to the success of the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth. We immediately seized upon the opponent’s calling card – safety and explained how homophobia represents a threat to students’ safety by creating a climate where violence, name-calling, health problems, and suicide are common. Tilting 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.”

Camenker called Jennings’ work the “landmark” speech on how to portray the promotion of homosexuality as a “safety” issue in order to gain favor in the eye of the public.

Said Jennings, “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.”

MassResistance also has reported that it was Jennings’ group that in 2000 held a seminar for public school teens on the benefits of “fisting.” The group handed out a document called “The Little Black Book” to young teens, a pornographic homosexual “how-to” that includes a directory of homosexual bars.

    Ohhh you crazy, looney whack jobs on the right. When will y’all learn. Ya can’t “turn” somebody gay. It is a scientific fact that gay people are born that way. You do not become gay because a teacher teaches something about their lifestyle. This teaching is being done so as to have future generations accept homosexuals as normal. This way we have a chance to really become a diverse society. Gee it would be horrible if we all just got along….wouldn’t it????

  2. Wanderant Says:

    Hey Patsy- you’d better work on getting all your looney lefties to get along with each other, first. You can start with Obie, Pelosi, Patterson, both Clinton’s and Carter.

    The only scientific fact is that it is only “fact” until the next rigorous study that comes along to replace it.

    Re: homosexuals- sorry, but you’re wrong there, too. Some people are born gay; but, much gayness is learned or indoctrinated (environmental). Exhibit 1: all the stupid (yes, stupid) bisexual/homosexual antics being displayed by this loser generation because “it is cool”. Think the rainbow version of “girls gone wild”. Nuff said??

  3. PATRIOT Says:

    Wow a RACIST and a HOMOPHOBE!! Gee what a surprise!! Another NEO-CON that hates anybody that is different!!

  4. Wanderant Says:

    Why does the notorious red herring “racist” and “bias” card get played by the left time after time?

    Answer- because they can’t respond in content or context and they think it works by hiding their own ignorance.

    It is the equivalent of the child responding with “you’re a stupid head!” when they, in juvenile frustration, have no answer to a question.

    It is about as effective as holding your ears and yelling when you hear something you don’t like.

    Oh, Patsy- try something different; like actually offering up a rational response, maybe even based in fact…dare we dream?

  5. PATRIOT Says:

    But the answer did have facts….you are a racist and a homophobe. These are the facts derived from your racist, homophobic and condescending wanderrants!!!
