The Illinois State Senate rejected a bill that would allow public schools to implement anti-bullying programs. Groups opposed to the bill successfully argued the legislation was part of a larger agenda.

“There are anti-bullying programs that have an agenda to only protect one class of individuals,” said Republican Sen. Kyle McCarter. “Some of these programs are very good. But there are programs throughout the United States that really have just a pro-homosexual agenda and nothing but that.”

One of the bill’s critics, the Illinois Family Institute, claimed the anti-bullying law was “youth programming.”
The Christian organization Focus on the Family alleges the gay lobby uses anti-bullying programs to sneak pro-homosexual propaganda into public schools.

"There are activist groups who want to promote homosexuality to kids because they realize if they can capture hearts and minds of our children at the earliest ages they will have for all practical purposes won the clash of values that we are currently experiencing," argues Focus on the Family’s Candi Cushman. "They've started introducing homosexuality lessons, sometimes even sexually graphic information under the cover of ... anti-bullying programs."

Books that portray homosexuals and lesbians in a positive light, such as “Heather Has Two Mommies” and “Daddy’s Roommate,” have been in the public schools for decades.

In the early 1990s, gay activist Kevin Jennings was instrumental in formulating a strategy to gain access to public school children. During a speech given to GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) supporters Jennings said, “If the Radical Right can succeed in portraying us as preying on children, we will lose. Their language–‘promoting homosexuality’–is laced with subtle and not-so-subtle innuendo that we are ‘after their kids.’”

Jennings formulated a new approach, the cornerstone of which was using “universal values” such as “safety” to camouflage pro-homosexual propaganda. Jennings would later boast of how this put opponents on the defensive.

“This framing short-circuited their arguments and left them back-pedaling from day one,” claimed Jennings . “No one could (say) ‘Why, yes, I do think students should kill themselves.’ This allowed us to set the terms for debate.”

Some gay activists have been candid. Daniel Villareal, writing for Queerty.com, wrote: “Why would we push anti-bullying programs ... that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal? We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it. Recruiting children? You bet we are… I for one certainly want tons of school children to learn that it’s OK to be gay, that people of the same sex should be allowed to legally marry each other, and that anyone can kiss a person of the same sex without feeling like a freak. And I would very much like for many of these young boys to grow up and start f***ing men.”

The Obama administration has made the issue of bullying a top priority. Guidelines formulated by the Dept. of Education and Justice Department tell kids not to fight back. Students should find an adult and report the incident. Those who violate the new policy by defending themselves are often suspended.

Denver public school student, Nathan Pemberton, was suspended after standing up to a bully who had been picking on him for months. Fed up with disinterested school officials, his parents told him to fight back.
“One kid kicked me in the back, then [he] punched me in the face. Then I punched him in the face, and then I got in trouble,” said Nathan.

A spokesperson for the school told Fox 31 Denver that “If a student is involved in a physical altercation on school property, they are automatically suspended. District 11 schools employ many anti-bullying teaching techniques and none of these methods include violence or retaliation.”

This policy of teaching kids not to fight back indicates that besides the pro-homosexual lobby’s indoctrination agenda, our government wants to produce a generation of weaklings who cower in the face of aggression. This no doubt will make them easier to control as America ’s growing police state continues to trample on individual rights and freedoms.
