Media Matters Stands By Jennings & His Organization's Teen Fisting Conference

Media Matterscontinues to downplay Obama’s Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings role at the Fistgate 2000 Conference where school children were taught about fisting and other dangerous sexual practices.

Here is how Media Matters is defending the “Safe” School Czar today:

Hoft’s new Jennings claim is a dud

Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft is again attempting to link Department of Education official Kevin Jennings to a workshop for high school students which included explicit discussions of sex that took place at a 2000 GLSEN/Boston conference. Hoft’s new “Explosive” claim is that a Massachusetts teacher who “wanted to remain anonymous out of safety considerations for herself and her family” claims “that there is ‘no way’ that Obama’s Safe School Czar did not know about the pornographic and sexually explicit material that was presented and discussed at the conference.” Of course, neither Hoft nor the anonymous teacher provide any actual evidence that Jennings knew the specific explicit content that would be discussed at that workshop; when he was made aware after the fact, he reportedly criticized it.

As Ed Morrissey said:

Shorter Media Matters — “Yes, Jennings was there, yes he gave the keynote speech, and yes, he was in charge of the group that staged this conference — but how dare you insinuate that he approved of it!” Noted.

Kevin Jennings founded GLSEN. He was the keynote speaker at the 2000 conference. A GLSEN activist claimed that the state officials (Jennings was a state official) knew about the fisting and spit or swallow lecture because they helped develop it and it was presented previously at least 5 times. A teacher at the 2000 conference claims that Jennings was active and knew every detail about the conference.
And, the conference literature even talked about the sex workshops for teens (page 8):

Obviously, the workshop did not surprise the workshop attendees. It was published in the conference program. The claim that Jennings had no idea on what was going on at the conference is ridiculous.

It should also be noted that Jennings’ GLSEN organization for years has pushed books that promote child porn and teen-adult sex.
