If you were looking for a tutor or even a babysitter for your child would you hire…Also, the afore-mentioned Queering Elementary Education features a cover blurb from presidential ghost writer Bill Ayers! Him again? Here's a taste:
…a person who founded and ran an organization where instructors had explicitly described to middle school youngsters how to perform homosexual sexual
acts?…a teacher who had been told by a boy of 15 that he had been sexually abused by an older man, but did not tell authorities or his parents or do anything to protect the youngster from the abuser?…a man who publicly stated that he was inspired by a man who was the number one proponent and promoter of pedophilia in the country?…a person who wrote the forward to a book called Queering Elementary Education?…a person who has publicly, in writing and in speeches, ridiculed and demeaned people of faith?…a person who has publicly, in writing, encouraged young people to defy their parents and religious leaders.
Queering Elementary Education is an important contribution to nourishing the ethical heart of teaching, reminding us how anemic and cold and partial our embrace of our students has too often beenThere's really nothing there that applies specifically to the School Safety Czar, but it gives you an idea of the creepy rhetoric (and rhetoriticians) who claim the mantle of "school reformer". And, it provides another link between the Obama Administration and Ayers.
The above link is to a conservative parents' group that has had Jennings in its sights for a long time, practically from when he published his memoirs in the mid-1990's. As with Van Jones and ACORN, the information was freely available to anyone who cared to look, but the vetters in the White House and MSM either didn't care to look, or saw Jenning's past as a positive, not a negative.
And, as with the "green jobs" czar, the real scandal is that nobody bats an eye when the president determines the republic needs a "school safety czar." What exactly the heck is that? If its to promote the "don't run with scissors" type of school safety, I think the adults on the scene can handle that without federal assistance. But, Jennings' career has been dedicated to a particular kind of safety: the protection of "queer youth" from the tender mercies of the nation's jocks and cheerleaders. And he has advocated his position through the sort of ACT-UP style activism that has turned the gay rights movement into a shrill enforcer of "equality." The question isn't "where did they find this guy?" It's, "Who thought this was a good idea?"
Also, he has made a cause out of teaching gay sex techniques to school kids. Check the linked article for the details of "fistgate," if you dare.
Look, Jennings is nothing more than a gay rights activist, not that there's anything wrong with it. He is unapologetic about this, and makes no effort to hide it, which is refreshing. But he was brought into the White House under the Left's favorite disguise: working to "protect The Children." Hah! Pace Ayers, we might soon have to protect The Children from the "embrace" of the "ethical heart of teaching" that is the real goal of the Safety Czar.
(There's even more hot Jennings action here. Don't bring the kids; it gets a little blue: When Silence Would Be Golden)
