Media Matters Responds To Fistgate III – Attacks Jim Hoft – Defends Reccomended Books

December 10, 2009

Media Matters has begun responding to the devastating revelations contained in the Fistgate expose.

Their first response is not much more than a personal attack against Jim Hoft, declaring him anti-gay:

Gateway Pundit part of right wing’s anti-gay war on Jennings

Gateway Pundit advanced smear that Jennings promoted “Child Porn in the Classroom.” Hoft was the first of several conservative bloggers to claim Jennings is unfit as “Safe Schools Czar” because he supposedly promoted “child porn” by allowing GLSEN to recommend for students in grades 7-12 books that included sexually explicit content. The organization, however, specifically stated on its book list website that “some titles for adolescent readers contain mature themes” and recommended that “adults selecting books for youth review content for suitability”; further, schools regularly teach books that contain sexually explicit material.

Media conservatives attacked Jennings with homophobic, extreme rhetoric. In their attacks on Jennings, numerous conservative media figures have resorted to thinly veiled homophobic appeals to paint Jennings, who is gay, as a “radical” “gay activist” with an “agenda” of “promoting homosexuality in schools.”

Gateway Pundit, Big Government, Breitbart.TV, Michelle Malkin, Founding Bloggers, and others have been consistent in arguing that this doesn’t have anything to do with sexual preference. Change the little boys depicted in the offensive material contained in Fistgate I and Fistgate II in to little girls, and the material is just as inappropriate.

In resorting to these personal attacks against Jim Hoft, Media Matters has implied that there would be less outrage about this material had the subjects and people involved exhibited heterosexual activity. Guess what Media Matters:  it is inappropriate for adult authority figures to have a Q & A on fisting with heterosexual minors, too.

The defamation against Jim Hoft, characterizing him as some kind of radical homophobe, is nothing but a bigoted smoke-screen. They can’t address the main question raised by this ugly scandal:  What is it about GLSEN events that make people think it is okay to engage in such inappropriate behavior with children present? Or does Media Matters believe the distribution and discussion of the materials revealed in the Fistgate expose are appropriate for young audiences?

Here is one example (among dozens) of what GLSEN and Media Matters are defending as acceptable recommended reading for kids (NSFW):

Queer 13 – Pages 16 + 17

(A man masturbates and explicitly ejaculates as he sits on a hill overlooking his hometown.)

I sit down on the hard ground and cry a little. I fish my aged cock out of my jeans as though I can mark the scene with pleasure so later I can find it and reread it for understanding. Once imagined, it is my responsibility to jack off in front of it all. The air feels funny on my cock, which usually squirms like a larva in the darkness; it’s more sensitive than I am to the prickle of a slight breeze. There is nothing to arouse me except myself. My tract looks so boring, its emptiness so lacks potential, that I can almost believe in reality, since here is appearance spreading out at my feet. It only takes a minute. My crotch rings like an alarm clock, some pump mechanism kicks in, and after short flights my sperm falls on the gray dirt. I feet edgy and shallow, emptied out by the day ahead, and twinges of residual pleasure make me twitch.

    God Bless you and Gateway Pundit, Big Government, Breitbart.TV, Michelle Malkin, and Sean Hannity for staying on this disturbing maddening infuriating story of Obama’s perverted radical czar. One can only surmise that Obama approves since he appointed him and consents by Team Obama’s silence.

    What we condone, we assume responsibility for…

    What we defend, we embrace.

    What we embrace, we make part of ourselves.

    What is the sound of one hand fisting?
