Good News: Obama "Safe Schools" Czar Recommends Child Porn to Kids

When I first heard about this I was skeptical. I'm not as prone to hyperventilating over sex as some of my friends. But taking a look at this? Man, that is pretty f*cked up right there:

Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that weren’t merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between pre-schoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, semen flying through the air. One memoir even praised becoming a prostitute as a way to increase one’s self-esteem. Above all, the books seemed to have less to do with promoting tolerance than with an unabashed attempt to indoctrinate students into a hyper-sexualized worldview.
Gateway Pundit has some of the offending quotes up and, yes, they really are that bad. Much much worse than I was expecting. Bad enough that I won't be printing any of it.

So, did Kevin Jennings have anything to do with the recommended book list? Or is Obama's adviser on "safe schools" only guilty of starting an organization that went terribly bad after he left?

If Jennings was involved, not only should he be fired but he should also have his ass kicked. Either way, somebody's ass needs to be kicked.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin posts this info that I thought I'd pass along:

Would Barack and Michelle Obama approve of their daughters reading this in their classrooms?

Is Kevin Jennings bringing his reading list to your children’s school?

Email: Kevin.Jennings@ed.gov

Email: Arne.Duncan@ed.gov

Yeah, I dunno if it's his reading list. It's his organization's. But I would really like someone to find out how old this reading list is and if Jennings was associated with the organization when it was compiled. That is the million dollar question.

UPDATE: Uh-oh. I missed this:

Kevin Jennings stepped down as Executive Director last year after leading GLSEN since its inception, but every single book mentioned in this report was added to the list while Jennings was in charge (dates are given for each title’s addition to the list). Therefore, it’s reasonable to believe he was aware of the addition of these works – especially since most were added when GLSEN was still quite small and the Executive Director had a hands-on role in daily operations.
This guy has got to go. Now. I've changed the title of the post to reflect this.

If someone gave one of my kids one of these books I'd call the cops. Presuming, of course, I had the self control not to kick his ass. Which in this case is a stretch.
