WASHINGTON, DC, October 21, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com)—Obama's controversial and embattled “safe schools czar,” Kevin Jennings, has helped fund a pornographic, anti-Catholic and sado-masochistic art display currently being shown at Harvard University, reports massresistance.org.
The Harvard exhibition, entitled, ACT UP New York: Activism, Art, and the AIDS Crisis, 1987-1993, chronicles the efforts of the homosexual civil disobedience group, Aids Coalition To Unleash Power (ACT UP), through the graphic stickers, posters, and other visual media used as propaganda in the early years of the homosexualist movement.
ACT UP describes itself as a “diverse, non-partisan group of individuals united in anger and committed to direct action to end the AIDS crisis.” According to Jenning's homosexual partner, Jeff Davis, Jennings was once a member of the group.
Jenning's name is listed on the Harvard art display's website, beneath those who provided a gift or grant.
The posters on display, which were designed in the early days of the movement, were part of ACT UP's protest against a government that they saw as having failed to do its duty in the AIDS crisis.
One poster is comprised of an up-close photograph of a woman's genitals, with text objecting to the Supreme Court's ban on abortion. Another, ostensibly about sexism and AIDS, includes an up-close shot of male genitalia.
Other posters include a variety of offensive images and messages. One image calls President Ronald Reagan a murderer and President George H.W. Bush a serial killer, for their perceived negligence in not using tax dollars to help those with AIDS.
ACT UP also vented rage against another figure of authority: the Catholic Church. One image visually compares New York's late Cardinal O'Connor to a condom, stating that the condom, at least, helps prevent AIDS. Cardinal O'Connor was well known for maintaining the Church's teaching on contraception and homosexuality. The poster states in large letters: “Know your scumbags.”
Similarly, another poster depicts two gay men kissing in front of New York's St. Patrick's Church. ACT UP is infamous for its involvement in a “protest” in St. Patrick's Church on December 10, 1989, wherein a Blessed Sacrament was desecrated.
Yet the displays of how ACT UP raged against all and any authority are perhaps less disturbing than those regarding the sexual desires of the homosexualist movement.
One image features a female toddler, with the word “Dyke” written beneath her in typeset. “Dyke” is a term used to designate a homosexual female, and often carries the connotation of a “butch” homosexual female.
In another part of the museum one finds text apparently describing an adult's violent sexual assault on a child.
ACT UP is described on their website as a group “united in anger” to help end the AIDS crisis. They are notorious for their disruptive protests; their website includes instructions regarding how to handle being arrested.
Kevin Jennings has increasingly come under fire in the last number of months, as more information about his radical views has come to light.
Jennings is a co-founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which targets children in public schools and classroom curricula to embrace homosexuality as a normative behavior.
In addition, during a speech in 2000, Jennings admitted failing to report the statutory rape of a fifteen-year old who was involved in a homosexual relationship with a much older man. Rather than reporting the situation, Jennings instead instructed the boy to wear a condom.
Jennings has also come under fire for his praise of Harry Hay, an ardent admirer of the North American Man/Boy Love Association and an advocate of lowering the age of consent laws. Additionally, it has recently come to light that Jenning's helped raise money for the Obama presidential campaign.
53 House Republicans have asked President Obama to fire Jennings, stating that he will push a homosexual agenda and that he clearly “lacks the appropriate qualifications and ethical standards to serve in this capacity.”
