The real agenda behind gay anti-bullying clubs in your school
WALTHAM, Massachusetts September 6, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Back in the early 1990’s most people in North America would have doubted there would ever come a day when the homosexual agenda would be accepted with open arms in elementary and high schools. Today however, that agenda is firmly implanted in public schools and is quickly making its way into Catholic schools, thanks to a well-planned strategy laid out by radical gay activists in 1995.
In the early 90’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered (GLBT) activists in Massachusetts sought to indoctrinate school children with homosexual values. GLBT activist Kevin Jennings, who was later appointed by President Obama as the assistant deputy secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools inside the Department of Education, masterminded the scheme of gay anti-bullying programs as a perfect inroad into the otherwise resistant classrooms of the nation.
“If the Radical Right can succeed in portraying us as preying on children, we will lose,” warned Jennings in a 1995 speech to fellow GLBT activists outlining his strategy. “Their language–‘promoting homosexuality’–is laced with subtle and not-so-subtle innuendo that we are ‘after their kids.’”
Jennings argued that the key to success lay in “framing” the issue in another way, to the advantage of the GLBT cause.
The strategy consists in linking the GLBT cause to “universal values” that everyone in the community has in common, such as “safety.” One then builds on this universal value the idea that “homophobia” represents a “threat” to students’ safety since it creates a “climate where violence, name-calling, health problems, and suicide are common.” From this point, one simply promotes legislation and programs for schools that frames the GLBT agenda in the language of these universal values.
“This framing short-circuited their arguments and left them back-pedalling from day one,” boasted Jennings. “[N]o one could speak up against our frame and say, ‘Why, yes, I do think students should kill themselves:’ This allowed us to set the terms for debate.”
Jennings realized that this strategy would effectively throw any opposition into a defensive mode and steal their best line of attack. If anyone objected to the homosexual and transgender indoctrination that the activists planned to push in the schools, they would be accused of heartless disregard for students.
Despite the fact that it has been executed time and time again for almost two decades the methods and talking points have hardly changed at all. A recent policy to address “homophobic harassment and bullying, and homophobia and heterosexism” approved by the Board of Education in Burnaby, BC followed Jennings’ strategy precisely, right down to the language of “safety.”
Policy # 5.45 states that to “ensure that all members of the school community work together in an atmosphere of respect and safety regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, the Board of Education will adopt appropriate administrative regulations and strategies that promote respect for human rights, support diversity, and address discrimination.”
The final goal of the campaign, according to Jennings, is that one day when, “straight people” hear that someone is “promoting homosexuality,” he would say “‘Yeah, who cares?’ because they wouldn’t necessarily equate homosexuality with something bad that you would not want to promote.”
While much of the past 15 years has left the goals of the gay ant-bullying scheme carefully unspoken, a recent article in an online homosexual publication let the cat out of the bag.
“Why would we push anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal?,” wrote Daniel Villarreal on Queerty.com, a website that promotes the gay agenda.
“We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it. Recruiting children? You bet we are,” he added.
“I for one,” continued Villarreal, “certainly want tons of school children to learn that it’s OK to be gay, that people of the same sex should be allowed to legally marry each other, and that anyone can kiss a person of the same sex without feeling like a freak. And I would very much like for many of these young boys to grow up and start f**ing men.”
