Great News: Obama's "Safe Schools Czar" Kevin Jennings to leave U.S. Dept. of Education in July!
MassResistance kept the pressure on and led the research effort
POSTED: May 23, 2011
His upcoming departure was announced on Thursday.
Jennings was perhaps the most outrageous government appointee in memory. He is a long-time homosexual activist who began his career in Massachusetts, and founded GLSEN, the national homosexual group that targets children in schools. Jennings' depraved record of pushing homosexuality and transgenderism to kids goes back decades.
Jennings' Dept. of Education office received $410 million in FY 2011. Among other efforts, last year, Jennings helped introduce Bill 4530 in Congress that would require normalization of homosexuality, transgenderism, cross-dressing, etc., in America's public schools. He also set up an "anti-bullying" conference at the White House in March, part of the larger pro-homosexual propaganda effort.
On July 25 Jennings will be starting his new job in Cambridge, Massachusetts running Be the Change, a high-powered non-profit that "creates national issue based campaigns." (See Item #2 below.) Be the Change was founded by Alan Khazei, a well-known liberal who recently announced he will run against US Sen. Scott Brown in 2012. See their Jennings press release here.
Culmination of an 18-month battle
Over the past eighteen months MassResistance has waged a battle in get Congress either to have Jennings' office defunded, or have him removed. We compiled and posted a large report of Jennings' activities going back decades-- most of which MassResistance uncovered. In addition we've gathered over ten thousand signatures from across America on our online petition. And we've been communicating with various key Congressmen and their staffs, as well as other Washington DC insiders, to push this as hard as possible.
Last year 53 Congressmen sent a letter to Obama asking that Jennings be removed. You can read that letter here.
In addition, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) submitted a resolution in the US House to have Jennings removed.
Plus, the Washington Times, Fox News and other media across the country called for Jennings' removal in editorials and TV reports.
All of those -- the letter, the resolution, and the news outlets -- used material from MassResistance.
Jennings' allies attacked MassResistance
In December, 2009, the Washington DC homosexual magazine MetroWeekly complained that MassResistance was behind much of the Jennings "smear" from conservatives.
Later that month, the George Soros-funded attack site Media Matters began to target MassResistance as the "source for right-wing media attacks on Jennings" with a number of vitriolic postings.
In August, 2010, Jennings addressed a meeting in Washington, DC, about the conservatives' "extensive attacks" on him and how he thus felt constrained to openly push his agenda in Congress. He thanked Media Matters for "debunking the lies" (i.e., the truths!) about him.
This week the national homosexual magazine The Advocate acknowledged that Jennings was "The target of social conservatives during his Education Department tenure."
Why did Jennings leave his post now?
It's likely that Jennings was "encouraged" to be out of his Dept. of Education post before this summer's 2012 budget fight began in full. MassResistance has been communicating with a number of Congressional offices for several months about adding language to de-fund Jennings' office in the 2012 budget. Jennings is by now fairly well-known among the Republican leadership and a growing number of congressmen are outraged about him.
Some possible factors in Jennings' timely departure:
In the end, we think that even Obama had had enough of Jennings at the DOE.
THANK YOU to everyone across the country who signed our petition and who helped get the word out. Getting Kevin Jennings out of the Dept. of Education is a great victory for all Americans!
