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.
