Will Charlie Gibson leave Fistgate to the 'Cables'?
Approximately a week after the ACORN video scandal broke Charlie Gibson was a guest on WLS-AM out of Chicago. He was asked why the networks were not covering the story. After nervous laughter and admitting he wasn’t even aware of the story, he stated, “Maybe this is just one you leave to the cables.”
The appointment of Kevin Jennings as Obama’s “Safe School Czar,” was an irony and a huge story from the day Jennings was installed. First, it was reported that Jennings had once counseled a male high school student who was having sex with a man. No, Jennings didn’t report the crime to the authorities; but he made sure the kid knew to use a condom.
Certainly, that wasn’t news. After all, Jennings now says he should have reported the matter.
Then it came out that Jennings was the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a radical homosexual-promoting organization.
Next, we learned that Jennings wrote a forward to a book in 1999 that advocated the “queering of elementary education.” Nothing newsworthy there.
Now we have the Fistgate story. The following is from BigGovernment.com:
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 another 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” Kevin Jennings is the founder of GLSEN. He was paid $273,573.96 as its executive director in 2007. Jennings was the keynote speaker at the 2000 GLSEN conference.
If the “mainstream” news media had investigated and reported on ACORN, the king of corruption and voter registration fraud, Obama’s name certainly would have come up. Therefore, it looks as though the media whispered, “story about ACORN, what story?”
Ditto on Kevin Jennings. Obama is tied and bound to Jennings; after all Obama chose the man to be his “Safe School Czar,” knowing that Jennings was the founder of GLSEN. Sure Obama will deny knowing the details of GLSEN; but a simple visit to their website would have revealed what they’re all about. Or he could have just asked Jennings.
The Kevin Jennings appointment will hurt Obama immeasurably once the story breaks through the double-bolted door of the “mainstream” newsroom. Every day that Jennings remains on staff Obama will have some explaining to do.
Charlie may want to leave this one to the “cables;” but, like the ACORN story, this one is too big -- and sick.
