MassResistance proudly touts victory over safe schools; watch your back, clean air!

by Jeremy Hooper

MassResistance, a group that's been on the Southern Poverty Law Center's anti-gay hate groups list for over three years now, is taking credit for budget cuts relating to the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools:

Although it's difficult to pinpoint the exact amounts, it's estimated nearly three-quarters of the funding to [Kevin] Jennings' "Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools" is being cut by Congress in the upcoming 2012 budget!
...
This follows nearly over eighteen months of pressure from MassResistance and media outrage (using our research and reports) about Jennings' horrible history as a homosexual activist and his use of his Federal office to push the homosexual agenda in schools across the country, and our demand that his office be de-funded.

Now the truth, of course, is that the cuts are due to the FY 11 budget and its $39 billion in cuts, and nothing that MassResistance has said or done. But leave it to MR to take credit for knocking back a program designed to curb bullying and increase overall safety in our public schools, since that notion flies right in the face of their unending agenda to curb tolerance and increase "ex-gay" advocacy. Such goals they have.

Though considering the group's apparent coziness with a theoretical President Bachmann, perhaps we should fear their priorities more than we even realize (or care to admit).
