Charles Winecoff Will Defend Kevin Jennings to the Death. But He Will Not Defend Kevin Jennings Defenders


Charles Winecoff, who has sex with men, is a conservative pundit who actually defends Kevin Jennings. What he won’t defend, however, are other rabid defenders of Kevin Jennings. Namely, the website Media Matters for America.

It’s likely, at least in part, that Winecoff is a Jennings defender because the very thing that got Obama’s safe school czar into so much trouble — once, as a teacher, advising a teenage student to be safe with his relationship with an older man, but not to end the affair — is something Winecoff can identify with: As a 17-year-old, he, too, began a relationship with a teacher, even moving in with him at age 18, before getting burned, as young gays so often do.

But Winecoff, who writes for Big Hollywood (the conservative website of former Matt Drudge biz partner Andrew Breitbart), has to draw the line somewhere. Though he’ll “even” excuse Jennings for celebrating for NAMBLA supporter Harry Hay, he will not let Jennings off the hook for recommending SEX-FILLED BOOKS to teens. And he’s tired of Media Matters always defending Jennings on that point.


His taste in books stinks.

As if the “Fistgate” scandal wasn’t bad enough – and doesn’t keep getting worse – a cesspool tsunami of evidence recently hit shore regarding Jennings’s Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and its approved reading list of sexually explicit material [LINK] – aimed at adolescents – including a guide to gay bars that was distributed at a 2005 GLSEN conference.

And they wonder why drinking and drugs are so prevalent in the gay community. I hate to give up on a gay brother, but enough already. Jennings is either totally incompetent at keeping schools safe – or, hat tip to Bill Clinton, it all depends what the meaning of “safe” is.

Meanwhile, Media Matters for America has dived headfirst into the sewer to do some quick and dirty damage control, defending every unsavory turd that’s floated to the surface – by smearing the whistle blowers (including BigGovernment.com) as “haters.” The oldest trick in the “progressive” playbook.

The “conservative” playbook, too!

Fine. But what is it about Media Matters for America that’s so bad, uh, for America?

In traditional Stalinist fashion, MMA has systematically denounced, even ridiculed, anyone who objects to the inappropriate sex seminars sponsored by GLSEN – like Brian Camenker, the outspoken leader of MassResistance, the pro-family group based in Massachusetts (where “Fistgate” occurred). Camenker has compared his struggle with the “progressive” agenda in schools to the battle against the Nazis in WW2. His rhetoric may be overstated, but as MMA ”research” tries to paint Camenker as some kind of nut, the actual GLSEN reading list proves he is justified.

In 2007, Camenker complained that, ”A federal judge ruled that schools can show picture books to elementary school children about homosexual romance.” If only the GLSEN-approved books stopped there. Instead, these clunky tracts neglect love in favor of (far less universal) sexual practices that have nothing to do with the birds and the bees – and everything to do with (what is very often) compulsive adult behavior better suited to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders than to a seventh grade reader.

Kids are learning about the benefits of spitting versus swallowing when they should be reading Moby Dick.

The kinky, risky fetishes spilling out of these texts have been well-documented elsewhere. But what’s equally disturbing is the deadening, inhuman language of race/gender politics that is being foisted on unsullied, impressionable minds. Teenagers should be exposed to the colors, ideas, moral quandaries, literary innovations, and expansive worldviews of great authors – gay and straight, black and white, male and female – not the narrow, detached, theoretical manipulations of bitter Marxist hacks.

And let’s just take it to the deep end:

Media Matters is not helping the LGBT community. In fact, quite the opposite. By pointing fingers at concerned citizens and desperately trying to whitewash these biased educational affronts, MMFA is only reinforcing the perceived wedge between gays/lesbians – and their fellow Americans. It’s confused “tolerance” with the exploitation of minors, tossed commonality under the bus in favor of “queerness” – and wrapped separatism in a pretty package called “diversity.”

      Kevin Jennings did not counsel the 16 year-old (not 15, as several of your old stories continue to read) to stop the “affair” with the older man because there was no affair. After the first wave of attacks, the young man came forward and stated that he was not engaged in a sexual relationship with the older man.

      Harry Hay was not “celebrated” by Jennings for his supposed involvement with NAMBLA. Jennings mentioned Hay in a speech as an inspiration because of Hay’s role in creating the Mattachine Society, the first successful gay organization in the United States. Characterizing Hay as a “NAMBLA supporter” shows ignorance about Hay and his beliefs. Hay’s “support” of NAMBLA was not rooted in its philosophy (although Hay, who at age 14 lost his virginity to a 24 year-old, was not opposed to older-younger relationships). Rather, it was rooted in Hay’s commitment to anti-assimilation in the LGBT movement. He felt about NAMBLA the same way that he felt about drag queens and leather enthusiasts, that the mainstream gays were pushing them to the margins out of shame.

      I’d expect this sort of thing from the Moonie-owned Washington Times (since they and FAUX News are the sources of the Jennings disinformation campaign) but not here.

      Plain silliness. They have thrown so much nonsense at Jennings and are now settling for the “he brings dirty books to children” lie.

      No one is buying that nonsense.

      Unfortunately the Charles Winecoffs of this world are simply too stupid to realize that Uncle Tom Faggots are just as hated as us the rest of us ‘liberal’ faggots.

      Charles Winecoff thinks that if he trashes his brother publicly, he will be viewed by the conservative ‘Christian’ right as ‘not one of THOSE faggots.’

      But he fatally miscalculates their hatred and animus.

      I am a Christian. I’m conservative. I disagree with Bill. I think regarding hatred and animus, he is projecting.

      “His rhetoric may be overstated, but as MMA ”research” tries to paint Camenker as some kind of nut, the actual GLSEN reading list proves he is justified.”

      Ummm…. but Brian Camenker IS a nut:


      1. MassResistance is only one of 10 organizations that the Southern Poverty Law Center identifies as an “anti-gay hate group”.

      2. In October 2008, Camenker’s employee Michael Olivio was approached by police because he was taking pictures of children at a grammar school. Olivio fled, running through back yards, and stripping off his clothes. Rather than fire him on the spot, Camenker came to his defense claiming that Olivio meant to photograph a high school for an anti-gay write up on his web site.

      3. One of MassResistance’s pet projects is to protest the Laramie Project (it glorifies the homosexual agenda… ya know, the agenda not to be beaten and left strung up on a fence to die). Well, it was until co-director Amy Contrada’s daughter auditioned for a roll and was cast in the play. Contrada, once caught, pulled her kid out of the school and told everyone she was adopted.

      4. In October 2007, Camenker told attendees at an event that ex-gay gadfly Stephen Bennett didn’t show up because he was run off the road by militant gay activists, which was then covered up by State Police. Little problem: he forgot to tell Bennett who, when contacted, told another story altogether.

      5. MassResistence and Camenker are the source for the myths, lies, and distortions told in the Prop 8 ads featuring the Wirthlins.

      6. MassResistence is laughable. It really is worth checking out just for the comedic irony.

      If there is a definition of “nut”, Camenker fits it.

      Really? It’s just projections?

      Then please explain why conservative Christians are threatening to boycott CPAC if right-wing uber-conservative Republican gay group GOProud is allowed to come?

      They can’t even be in the same room as a gap person who agrees with them on EVERYTHING ELSE.

      That isn’t based on hatred?

      Yeah, right

      If Charlie-boy is so easily offended by sexuality, how does he manage to have anal sex with other men? What does he do when his boyfriend cums on him?

      No. 7 · Mr. Enemabag Jones questions: “If Charlie-boy is so easily offended by sexuality, how does he manage to have anal sex with other men? What does he do when his boyfriend cums on him?”


      Well, that one’s easy. As he puts it… “[it represents](far less universal) sexual practices that have nothing to do with the birds and the bees – and everything to do with (what is very often) compulsive adult behavior better suited to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders…”

      …and then he asks for seconds.
