Breitbart's Big Government Comes Up With "Fistgate"

Andrew Breitbart's website Big Government has not given up the fight against Obama's Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings.  Apparently, Jennings is guilty of promoting "fisting" to 14 year-olds at a conference in 2000.  The moral crusaders over at Big Government must have too much time on their hands.

For proof, they point out that Kevin Jennings founded the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network, or GLSEN, in 1990, and was their executive director a couple years ago.  By association, they also cite several books reccommended on the GLSEN website for promoting sexuality in children.  The nail in the coffin for what they dub "fistgate" is an audio clip from a 2000 GLSEN conference in which a woman asks what exactly "fisting" is.  The speaker, David LaFontaine, chairman of the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth explained what the act is, with the woman adding to his explanation.  Apparently this is proof that Jennings promotes adolescent sex, but not just any sex, but "fisting".

The author of this Big Government article, Jim Hoft, makes the accusation that all gay and lesbian organizations are about sex based on this "proof", but what I think is the underlying issue is the hatred the ultra-right feels towards homsexuality.  Hoft uses an audio clip of David LaFontaine from this conferance with voice over from another conservative website, Mass Resistance, claiming that LaFontaine was showing 14 year-olds how to insert a hand into a rectum, insinuating that LaFontaine, and by association, Kevin Jennings, are promoting acts they deem immoral.  He also inserts a Scott Baker, co-founder of, post from a Gateway Pundit blog attacking the "reccommended" reading list of GLSEN.

Considering the past attacks against Kevin Jennings, it is very clear that the ultra-right hates homosexuals, and their hatred seems to come out of the closet as they vigourously attack their targets.
