“judge me by the people I surround myself with” Part IVXX.IVII

How would you react if your child’s (male) teacher said the following:  “One of the people that’s always inspired me is Harry Hay…”

Who is Harry Hay? Well, he was a very early gay rights activist, but he was also a staunch supporter of NAMBLA, which as far as I’m concerned cancels out any and all good he may have done elsewhere.  I would assume any sane person would hold the same assessment.  Apparently not Obama’s Safe Schools Czar, Kevin Jennings who in a 1997 speech stated that Hay is one of his greatest inspirations (quote above).  A few more tidbits about Hay.  Hay is quoted as saying:””[I]f the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays, they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what thirteen-, fourteen-, and fifteen-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world.”  Michelle Malkin points out the following (source below):

I have been unable to find information about any NAMBLA conference which Harry Hay didn’t attend.

I don’t know what it takes to be considered “in NAMBLA” or a “NAMBLA member,” but someone who makes appearances at and gives speeches at every known NAMBLA conference, and who speaks out publicly in NAMBLA’s defense, and who writes blurbs for NAMBLA books, would seem to be a likely candidate.

Now, to be fair, Jennings does NOT specifically praise Hay in regards to his NAMBLA sympathies, but he does not condemn them either.  We as parents are simply left to draw our own conclusions.  Our “safe schools czar” finds one of his heros to be an unabashed pedophile.  Our safe schools czar also council a 15-year old boy who was a vicitim of statutory rape to “use a condom” rather than report the incident to authorities.  Our Safe Schools Czar also wrote the forward for a book entitled “Queering Elementary Education” because, ya know, elementary kids need to have sexuality be it heterosexual or homosexual rammed down their throats in school.  So I end with the question: do you trust your children to Obama’s choice in a Safe Schools Czar?  I certainly do not.  I wouldn’t even want him looking at my three sons, quite frankly.  Where’s the vetting Obama?  Ok, I’m pretending here.  Quite honestly, I believe the vetting has been done at that just like Van Jones, Obama knows exactly where Jennings’ sympathies lie.  He just doesn’t care.

The (un)safe school czar’s inspiration

Two items on the continuing (un)safe school czar scandal:

Zombie investigates Kevin Jennings’ inspiration, NAMBLA enthusiast Harry Hay and concludes:

I have been unable to find information about any NAMBLA conference which Harry Hay didn’t attend.

I don’t know what it takes to be considered “in NAMBLA” or a “NAMBLA member,” but someone who makes appearances at and gives speeches at every known NAMBLA conference, and who speaks out publicly in NAMBLA’s defense, and who writes blurbs for NAMBLA books, would seem to be a likely candidate.

Jeffrey Lord at the American Spectator widens the lens with “Pelosi to Polanski to Jennings:”

One of the reasons the GOP lost control of the House in the 2006 elections was the scandal surrounding then-Florida Republican Congressman Mark Foley. Foley, it needs to be recalled, was revealed to be targeting young male House pages for sex — his texting messages to underage boys making him instantly infamous. In the ensuing uproar, Foley — correctly — resigned.

Leading the charge on this issue was none other than Nancy Pelosi — the Congresswoman from San Francisco. Said Pelosi on the issue which would make her Speaker of the House:

Republican leaders admitted to knowing about Mr. Foley’s abhorrent behavior for six months to a year and failed to protect the children in their trust. Republican Leaders must be investigated by the Ethics Committee and immediately questioned under oath.

Catch Speaker Pelosi’s phrase: “…protect the children in their trust.”

For failing to protect those children, Pelosi wanted a Congressional investigation, with members of Congress to be “immediately questioned under oath.”

But there was something curious going on with Pelosi, something that was revealed here in this space. To his considerable credit, Fox’s Sean Hannity picked up on the story instantly, consistent in his horror at the attitude toward sexual predators then and now.

It seems that back in 2001, Pelosi was a happy participant in the San Francisco Gay Pride parade. As noted here, with a large gay community in her hometown there was nothing unusual about this. What was unusual was that the Grand Marshal of the parade was one Harry Hay, the (now-deceased) advocate of “man-boy love”…

One more good read this morning from Byron York on the continuing battle over Obama’s radicals in the Examiner. Takeaway:

Does anyone believe that Jones, Sergant and Jennings are the only Obama officials about whom truly serious questions can be raised? While Obama’s other wars will someday end, this one might last the entire administration.
