Fistgate II? Big Government Obsesses With What They Call "Homosexual Sex Practices"; Cites Own Work As Proof

Like any good ultra-right blogger, Jim Hoft seems to have found a smear and is sticking to it.  Building on his previous "fisting" article, Hoft trickles out some new information on his Big Government page describing how GLSEN and Planned Parenthood handed out "fisting kits", which consisted of lubrication, a glove, and instructions.

It seems Jim Hoft must have been digging for some dirt on what he deems as wrong, or so it seems.  Hoft's blog is interesting because he cites a couple websites such as Mass Resistance, Founding Bloggers, Gateway Pundit, and Massachusetts News Massachusetts News published a story 8 years ago by Ed Oliver titled "Fistgate II Teaches More Homosexual Activity For Young 'Homosexuals'".  Founding Bloggers seemed to cut and paste parts of the Oliver's article, which they claim was sent by an "interesting reader."  The Founding Bloggers blog also links to Big Government and Gateway Pundit for more information.  Gateway Pundit featured an audio clip and transcripts Mass Resistance, which claims the tapes were made to combat the homosexual agenda in our schools.  Did I mention that the Gateway Pundit article was also written by Jim Hoft?  According to Wikipedia, there was a gag order placed on the tape of the meeting, but the tapes have been made public in the middle of this year, which is about when Mass Resistance posted their audio clip.

So essentially, Jim Hoft heard this audio clip, wrote an article for Gateway Pundit on December 6th, then cited his own article for another one he wrote for Big Government on December 8th, which in turn cited Founding Bloggers from December 8th as well, which references back to Hoft's Big Government and Gateway Pundit articles.  Where is the research?  Where are the independant sources backing up or strengthening his argument?  Essentially, Hoft goes to a single source for his information, then uses other websites which he writes for or who cite his articles to back up his original article.  Maybe Jim Hoft should try to investigate something new instead of rehashing an 8 year old story.


  1. Um... Did you actually read the articles? Listen to the soundbites? Did you see "Fistgate V" which shows a professionally produced pamphlet that was handed out to 14-21 year olds, reading: “No Dookie On Your Noodle! Nobody knows better than queer men that sh*t happens. It’s just a fact of life…and butts*x. While there are steps to take to avoid a mess, they’re not always practical for the boy on the go. Condoms allow you a certain freedom that can be a great selling point if you’re cruising the park and don’t want stray spunk on your new polyester shirt…”???

    You seem to be missing the forest for the trees. Do you think this is appropriate? And how is this not a HUGE news story? Do you really believe a Republican involved in or associated with anything remotely close to this kind of thing wouldn't be front page news for weeks?

  2. I reviewed all the material. It seems the people who have the problem with this are the people this was never intended for. I may not agree with or understand the material, but I respect that it is not for me.

    The source of all the discontent is from an anti-gay site which attended the conference with a preconceived notion of homosexuality, labeling it as a lifestyle, and a negative lifestyle at that.

    These pamphlets were written in street slang. Is the language shocking? Yes, but no different then material you learn in sexual education classes. If this conference was attended by hundreds of others, where are the numerous other complaints from attendees?

    As for Republicans, what ever happened to Mark Foley or Larry Craig? Foley preyed on pages for years but nothing ever came of his indiscretions. He resigned and disappeared and Craig faded from the headlines almost immediately after his arrest.

    Don't worry. I noticed Jim Hoft is already up to "Fistgate X"! This time, it is literature romanticizing rape of a 13 year-old. If I read things the way Hoft does, then I would probably view Huckleberry Finn as racist propaganda or The Lord Of The Rings as promoting paganism...
