GLSEN-ing Young Children

American Thinker | by Jeannie DeAngelis | Dec. 31, 2009

American educators are determined to guard schoolchildren from exposure to unsuitable influences in the classroom, which is why Kevin Jennings was appointed “Safe School Czar.” The former teacher’s noted expertise concerns the issue of bullying homosexual youths.

Parents can rest securely in the knowledge that while in school, children are safe and sound thanks to Obama’s appointee, the founder and executive director of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN — pronounced “glisten”). Kevin Jennings, together with educational organizations like the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the National Education Association (NEA), has made a top priority the rooting out of detrimental childhood influences, beginning with the Bible and religious imagery.

Watermelon Marxists

American Thinker | by John Griffing | Dec. 8, 2009

Global warming as a science is defunct. Evidence of scientific dishonesty abounds, and the recent e-mail revelations may be the last nail in the coffin. When all is said and done, temperatures are falling.

But as a tool for watermelon Marxists — green on the outside and red on the inside — climate change orthodoxy represents an opportunity to achieve age-old dreams of communist wealth redistribution. Don’t take my word for it. Listen to Cass Sunstein, Obama’s new regulatory czar and perhaps the most powerful bureaucrat in America:

It is even possible that desirable redistribution is more likely to occur through climate change policy than otherwise, or to be accomplished more effectively through climate policy than through direct foreign aid.

Obama’s Buggery Czar, Kevin Jennings

The Washington Times | Dec. 8, 2009

The media is trying to keep this story in the closet, but it’s important not to wink at all the serious problems surrounding President Obama’s controversial “safe schools czar,” Kevin Jennings.

Mr. Jennings is the moral malefactor who gave a speech about how he merely advised a 15-year-old high-school sophomore who was having sex with an older man that, “I hope you knew to use a condom.” He knew the boy had met the adult in a bus-station restroom. Mr. Jennings also expressed admiration for Harry Hay, a notorious and extremely prominent supporter of the North American Man Boy Love Association. “One of the people that’s always inspired me is Harry Hay,” he said. Despite numerous requests to the Obama administration and Mr. Jennings, we have not received any answers to inquiries about these troubling issues. [Read more…]

Obama’s ‘Safe Schools Czar’ Promotes Child Porn in the Classroom – Kevin Jennings’s GLSEN Reading List

Wake up America and protect your children. The radicals Obama has surrounded himself with are targeting the innocent, corrupting children, and tearing away at the fabric of our country.

First Things | by Jim Hoft | Dec. 4, 2009

Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings was the founder, and for many years, Executive Director of an organization called the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). GLSEN started essentially as Jennings’ personal project and grew to become the culmination of his life’s work. And he was chosen by President Obama to be the nation’s Safe Schools Czar primarily because he had founded and led GLSEN (scroll for bio).

GLSEN’s stated mission is to empower gay youth in the schools and to stop harassment by other students. It encourages the formation of Gay Student Alliances and condemns the use of hateful words. GLSEN also strives to influence the educational curriculum to include materials which the group believes will increase tolerance of gay students and decrease bullying. To that end, GLSEN maintains a recommended reading list of books that it claims “furthers our mission to ensure safe schools for all students.” In other words, these are the books that GLSEN’s directors think all kids should be reading: gay kids should read them to raise their self-esteem, and straight kids should read them in order to become more aware and tolerant and stop bullying gay kids. Through GLSEN’s online ordering system, called “GLSEN BookLink,” featured prominently on their Web site, teachers can buy the books to use as required classroom assignments, or students can buy them to read on their own.

All the President’s Mao

American Thinker | by Mac Fuller | Oct. 22, 2009

President Obama and “the other side of Barack’s brain,” Valerie Jarrett — whose stepfather coincidentally maintained close ties with the President’s adolescent mentor and Communist, Frank Marshall Davis — handpicked the following bureaucrats and placed them in positions of great authority, power, and visibility:

Van Jones, “Green Jobs Czar,” self-defined Communist.

Ron Bloom, “Manufacturing Czar” cites Chairman Mao as a political guide.

Anita Dunn, White House Communications Director, who stated in an address to high school students this past June that Chairman Mao Tse-tung was one of the two “philosophers” she most often turns to. [Read more…]

Anita Dunn Blames Lee Atwater for Quoting Mao

NewsBusters | by P.J. Gladnick | Oct. 17, 2009


“Taken out of context!”
“You just didn’t understand the irony!”
“Just kidding!”

The incredibly lame excuses those on the left come up with to try to explain away statements they made that have come back to haunt them is growing more hilarious by the day.

Robert Reich clearly stated at a 2007 Berkeley lecture what an honest candidate for president who didn’t worry about getting elected would say to senior citizens who face costly treatment to keep them alive: “It’s too expensive…so we’re going to let you die.” [Read more…]

Anita Dunn Favorite Philosopher Mao Tse-Tung


Anita Dunn, the White House Communications Director, admitted that one of favorite political Philosophers, one that she “turns to the most”, is Mao Tse-Tung, the demonic communist dictator responsible for the starvation, torture, and murder of 70 million Chinese. [Read more…]

Obama’s Biggest Radical

FrontPageMagazine | Ben Johnson | Feb. 27, 2009

When Barack Obama nominated John P. Holdren as his Science Adviser last December 20, the president-elect stated “promoting science isn’t just about providing resources” but “ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology.” In nominating John Holdren, his words could scarcely have taken a more Orwellian ring.

Some critics have noted Holdren’s penchant for making apocalyptic predictions that never come to pass, and categorizing all criticism of his alarmist views as not only wrong but dangerous. What none has yet noted is that Holdren is a globalist who has endorsed “surrender of sovereignty” to “a comprehensive Planetary Regime” that would control all the world’s resources, direct global redistribution of wealth, oversee the “de-development” of the West, control a World Army and taxation regime, and enforce world population limits.

He has castigated the United States as “the meanest of wealthy countries,” written a justification of compulsory abortion for American women, advocated drastically lowering the U.S. standard of living, and left the door open to trying global warming “deniers” for crimes against humanity. Such is Barack Obama’s idea of a clear-headed adviser on matters of scientific policy. [Read more…]
