Hoft Revives Anti-Gay Smears On Jennings After News He Is Leaving Education Dept.

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

In a May 23 post on Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft reacted to news that Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings is leaving the Education Department to head the "Be The Change" campaign by reviving false, anti-gay smears against him. In the post titled "No More Fi$ting Tips? ... Obama's Porn-Pushing Safe School's Czar Is Stepping Down in July", Hoft unleashed a litany of old smears against Jennings, who was the former head of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). From the Gateway Pundit:

In March 2000 the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) organization of Massachusetts held its 10 Year Anniversary GLSEN/Boston conference at Tufts University. This conference was fully supported by the Massachusetts Department of Education, the Safe Schools Program, the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth, and some of the presenters even received federal money. 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.

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.

Mass Resistance reported today that Kevin Jennings would step down as Safe School's czar in July.
Good.
