'Gay' safe-schools czar on way out?

President Obama’s hand-picked homosexual “safe schools czar,” Kevin Jennings, could be on his way out of office, based on a budget deficit reduction proposal.

Jennings, an outspoken homosexual activist, was appointed to head the Education Department’s “Office of Safe Schools” when Obama took office.

In was in the middle of 2009 when WND broke the news of Jennings’ federal appointment to oversee
“safety” in the nation’s public schools after he had boasted of using the same theme to promote homosexuality and other alternative sexual lifestyles to students.

WND reported how Jennings founded the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network, on his influence over a conference for teachers and children that included instruction in various homosexual acts such as “fisting,” multiple efforts at the congressional level to have him removed, his responsiveness when a porn publisher asked for his help in writing a book, his financial sponsorship of radical homosexual art and his membership in the sometimes-violent radical Act Up homosexual organization.

The sexually graphic books the Jennings-founded GLSEN recommends for children also have been the subject of reports.

Now a recommendation from the Obama-appointed Fiscal Commission to address the nation’s debt is proposing taxpayers save a lot of money by cutting Jennings’ office entirely.

The No. 16 point in the draft document recommending cuts states: “Eliminate the Office of Safe & Drug Free Schools. In the president’s budget, funding for the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools is more than double the allocation from 2008. This option eliminates the office, saving about $1.8 billion in 2015.”

The analysis noted, “While school safety should be protected, violence and drug abuse are problems that occur far less on school grounds than elsewhere. As CBO points out in the Budget Options Volume 2 report, children are more likely to be victims of violence away from school, and while drug use is more common than violence, it still occurs infrequently on school property.”

It continued with criticism that results haven’t really been seen from Jennings’ operations: “Further, the results hoped for in creation of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools have not been demonstrated.”

The move would save an estimated $1.8 billion, a small part of the $200 billion-plus recommended in savings in the draft document.

Mass Resistance, a Massachusetts organization that works to counteract the advance of homosexual activism, has investigated Jennings’ background and activities and has described how GLSEN has played a key role in plans to “transgenderize” schools in Maine.

Mass Resistance has launched a petition to have Jennings removed, as has GrassrootsNation.

At the Washington Times, a series of editorials addressed worries over Jennings’ influence on children.

“Teaching children sexual techniques is simply not appropriate. Unfortunately, it is part of a consistent pattern by some homosexual activists to promote underage homosexuality while pretending that their mission is simply to promote tolerance for so-called alternative lifestyles,” the newspaper said.

“It is outrageous that someone involved in this scandal is being paid by the taxpayers to serve in a high-powered position at the Education Department, of all places. At some point, [Education Secretary Arne] Duncan, Mr. Jennings, Obama administration spokesmen and the president himself are going to have to start answering questions about all this. Refusing to do so won’t make the issue go away.”
