Obama’s Safe Schools Czar Tied to Lewd Readings for 7th Graders
By Maxim Lott
Obama adviser Kevin Jennings is under fresh attack after it was revealed that the pro-gay group he formerly headed recommends books his critics say are pornographic.
The group under fire is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which Kevin Jennings, now the assistant deputy secretary for safe and drug-free schools in the Department of Education, founded and ran from 1990 to 2008.(more)
Gateway Pundit has been reporting on this scandal for over a week now. Congressmen are going to the floor of the House asking for Jennings’ resignation. Hannity and Greta Van Susteren have called for this man’s firing and through all of this President Obama is not listening.
This is the latest reporting on this troubling situation from Gateway Pundit:
After years of silence a traumatized Massachusetts teacher spoke out in an interview about what she witnessed at GLSEN’s Fistgate Conference in 2000. She also describes Barack Obama’s Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings’ role at the infamous conference that discussed “fisting” and “watersports” with children.
The Massachusetts teacher in this interview attended the conference and actually took the photo of Obama’s Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings sitting and holding a conference program during a break. Jennings was the keynote speaker at the conference.
The teacher claims that there is “no way” that Obama’s Safe School Czar did not know about the pornographic and sexually explicit material that was presented and discussed at the conference. Kevin Jennings is the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).
Here is a partial transcript of the interview. The teacher wanted to remain anonymous out of safety considerations for herself and her family:
Jim Hoft- Gateway Pundit: I had a couple of more questions. One is did you see Kevin Jennings at the conference?
Massachusetts Teacher: Yes, he was the keynote speaker…
GP: So he was at this conference where they were promoting sexual acts with kids. They were promoting sex between kids and adults and he was the keynote speaker there?
GP: And it was his organization that actually ran the conference. Is that correct?
MT: Specifically, it was GLSEN Massachusetts. But remember, he not only founded GLSEN in Massachusetts but at that point he was the head of the national GLSEN which I believe was in New York City at that time. I don’t know where it is now. He was touted as this wonderful person who helped children so that they wouldn’t be harassed by parents, and other students…
GP: Right. Which sounds like a good thing.
MT: Oh yeah. It sounds really good because there’s not a single teacher I know that wants any child to be mistreated… And so all of these things sound really good.
GP: Right… So let me ask you this. Was Kevin, did you see him throughout the day? Do you recall him at all?
MT: Um. The last time I saw him was when I snapped the picture of him and Wallace Bachman* that was taken in the front row of the auditorium. I knew that I wanted to get his picture. Cameras were not outlawed the first year (2000)… Now in that picture Wallace Bachman is on the left and Kevin is on the right and Adam is giving him a lunch ticket. I took it just at the moment they were looking down and it wasn’t a real attractive… It was one of those pictures you really want to get.
GP: It’s a great picture. So there’s no way. Let me ask you this, there’s no way that Kevin Jennings could have been at this conference and not know that there was this explosive sexual speeches, talks, materials around the conference?
MT: This whole conference was his dream and his mindset. This was his vision from the very beginning.
GP: So there was no way that they would have had material there that he would not have, would you say approved of?
MT: Obviously, this is material that he advocates. Even today if you read the text of some of the books that they put out.
GP: That was up on my blog, by the way.
MT: He knew about that too. He knows about everything all along. Remember, the buck stops with him. He was the head of all of this.
MT: He brought in all of the people that would agree with him as any administrator would do. You bring in people who agree with you who you can work with.
GP: Sure. Alright. Oh wow! That’s a powerful statement right there. That’s really powerful.
Today Kevin Jennings is Barack Obama’s Safe Schools Czar.
* -The teacher said the man sitting with Kevin Jennings was Adam Glick but others told me it was Wallace Bachman.
There’s more to come.
