REPORT: Jennings Praised NAMBLA Figure

Kevin Jennings, appointed by Barack Obama as the head czar in charge of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, reportedly praised a lead figure involved in the North American Man Boy Love Association.

UPDATE: Gibbs Thinks This Is A Laugh Riot

Jennings is also in hot water for not only failing to report to authorities that a 15-year-old male student of his had revealed he was having bus station bathroom sex with an older man, but for appearing to condone the behavior.

The transcript of an October 25, 1997 speech that Jennings gave to the Mid-Atlantic conference of his group Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) reveals that Jennings had high praise for an individual named Harry Hay.

One of the people that’s always inspired me is Harry Hay, who started the first ongoing gay rights groups in America.

If the man Barack Obama put in charge of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools finds Harry Hay to be such an inspiration, we should find out who he is.

As it turns out, and I’m sensing a theme here, Harry Hay was a huge proponent of teen-aged boys having sex with much older men.  He protested NAMBLA’s exclusion from gay rights parades, and carried a “NAMBLA Walks With Me” sign in a Los Angeles pride parade.

But none of this is really my story to tell.  I’ll let Harry tell you in his own words “from a talk at a New York University forum sponsored by a campus gay group in 1983″ as reprinted by American Spectator.

[I]f the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays, they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what thirteen-, fourteen-, and fifteen-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world.

Inspirational.  If you’re Kevin Jennings.

Did the “inspiration” Kevin Jennings found in Harry Hay lead to Jennings’ failure to act and tacit approval when the 15-year-old boy reported to Jennings that he was having an ongoing sexual relationship with an older man he met in a bus station bathroom? After all, this does seem to be the very behavior that Harry Hay, Kevin Jennings’ “inspiration,” says “fifteen-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world.”

I’m sure that each of these radicals like Van Jones and Kevin Jennings found their way into the upper ranks of the Obama administration just by coincidence, or through faulty vetting.

UPDATE: Apparently, some think it matters whether the High School Sophomore boy having sex with adult men in he met in bus station bathrooms was 15 or 16-years old.  Jennings himself described him as 15, some say they have evidence he was 16.  The point is more the teacher / student relationship than the age.
