Latest smear against Kevin Jennings revisits familiar lie - 'Little Black Book'
Gateway Pundit continues to tell its Mass Resistance fueled lies on Obama appointee Kevin Jennings.
This time the site is claiming that Jennings and the organization he founded to help lgbt children, GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network), passed out a guide encouraging children to have sex with strangers in public parks.
It's the latest in the plethora of lies pushed against Jennings.
Let's look at the list of lies before hitting on the new one:
Gateway Pundit falsely claimed that Jennings and GLSEN were encouraging students to read explicit books. This was a serious misrepresentation of the facts.
The site brought up the Fistgate lie irregardless of the fact that this story had been refuted
It propagated a lie that Jennings had led the way to the passing out of "fisting kits" to children. The kits had nothing to do with "fisting" and they were created by Planned Parenthood.
Gateway Pundit made the false claim that Jennings and GLSEN passed out an explicit sex guide "Little Black Book" to students at a conference in 2005. This was another falsehood. Fenway Community Health officials said they accidentally left about 10 copies of the ''Little Black Book" on an informational table they rented at the conference. Furthermore, no students actually got copies of the book.
That last lie is important to remember because the new lie Gateway Pundit is pushing is linked to it.
You see, the guide that Gateway Pundit is claiming that Jennings and GLSEN distributed to children encouraging them to have public sex with strangers is "Little Black Book:"
Right-wing site removes post calling Kevin Jennings a pedophile.
Post also falsely claimed that there were videos of Jennings teaching children sex acts.
Today comes the news that some on the right have thrown a slur at Kevin Jennings which may have scared even them.
From Media Matters comes the news that the right-wing group Accuracy in Media (pardon me for laughing) has thrown a very ugly slur at Jennings. So ugly in fact that the site backtracked like a dancer doing the moonwalk:
In attacking the media for allegedly insufficient coverage of Obama administration official Kevin Jennings, a blogger for Accuracy in Media, which purports to "set the record straight on important issues that have received slanted coverage" -- and which has a record of antagonism toward gays -- smeared Jennings as a "pedophile" and falsely claimed that "[v]ideos have surfaced of Jennings teaching 14-year-old boys the dangerous sexual practice of 'fisting,' and discussing with them the particulars of oral sex." In fact, Jennings did not conduct that seminar and, in fact, reportedly criticized it when he became aware of its content.
It appears that the anti-gay hate group, Mass Resistance, Gateway Pundit and The Washington Times have all joined forces in their headlong charge to lead the Republican Party over the cliff.
