Lunatic libs have now reduced themselves to accusing Michelle Bachmann of being personally responsible for nine specific teenage suicides in her district.

...I guess they couldn't find a way to blame Bush.....

OBAMA’S CREEPIEST CZAR YET: - “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings — Unsafe for America’s Schools

In a 1997 speech he embraced the idea of actively “promoting” homosexuality, looking forward to a day when “people, when they would hear that someone was promoting homosexuality, would say, ‘Yeah, who cares?’” . . .

[I]n a speech in a New York church in 2000, Jennings is reported to have said, “We have to quit being afraid of the religious right. . . . I’m trying not to say, ‘[F-—] ‘em!’ which is what I want to say, because I don’t care what they think! Drop dead!” . . .

He wrote the foreword for a book titled Queering Elementary Education, which includes an essay declaring that “‘queerly raised’ children are agents” using “strategies of adaptation, negotiation, resistance, and subversion.”

Perverts, tax cheats, and lunatics - The Obama Czarapalooza.

“....I guess they couldn’t find a way to blame Bush.....”

Of course Michele Bachmann and her husband are responsible to teen suicides her district. These poor misguided kids didn’t want to live in a world where gays would be executed, eliminated, or turned straight.

Man...the libs must be scared to death to write this kind of BS. You watch: If there is a tornado in a state where she’s campaigning, the MSM will somehow make it her fault.

Hollywood Bullies Against Bullying?

CNN’s “Larry King Live” brought on the antonym of human dignity, Kathy Griffin, who quickly inflamed the Clementi moment by charging “the blood’s on their hands” of our “so-called leaders.”

Let’s put aside that ridiculous “connecting the dots” charge for a second. Larry King should have been asked: Given that Griffin regularly takes to the stage and television to viciously attack other people, is she really the kind of personality that can plausibly pose as the guardian of empathy and the role model for anti-bullying behavior? This year, she made the rounds of talk shows laughing up the controversy she created when she said Sen. Scott Brown’s daughters were “prostitutes.” One daughter, Arianna, is a freshman at Syracuse University — the same age as the boy who took his own life. Griffin’s even wished violence on people. She recently told a Playgirl magazine writer, “I’d like to push Sarah Palin down the stairs.” Now she’s CNN’s anti-bullying poster child.

Sitting right next to her was lesbian comic Wanda Sykes, who chimed in with her own love taps. “In the laws and everything else that’s out here, in the churches that they preach that homophobia (sic) is wrong. You pretty much have given kids permission to disrespect and, you know, and to cause harm to the gay and lesbian community.” This is the same “comedian” who “joked” in front of the president that she hoped Rush Limbaugh’s kidneys failed and he died. Now, she’s on CNN lecturing on bullying.

Sarah Silverman, another comedian who thrives on shocking and insulting comments. Silverman went on YouTube to lecture the country: “Dear America, When you tell gay Americans that you can’t serve their country openly or marry the person that they love, you’re telling that to kids, too. So don’t be f-—ing shocked, wondering where all these bullies are coming from who are torturing young kids and driving them to kill themselves because they’re different. They learned it from watching you.”

Once again, putting aside the downright stupid accusation that opposing gay marriage is a bullying-and-suicide platform, is Silverman a role model against bullying? At almost the same time her accusatory video piled up more than 200,000 views, Silverman was vomiting this sex “joke” on Twitter: “9/11 widows give the best (sex act).” Can you say cognitive dissonance? She’s now lecturing on bullying.

And the anti-gay activists who are some of the congresswoman's closest allies stand accused of blocking an effective response

I really don't want to give this lib site a hit (it's where Michael Moore started). Does it EVER explain how these people supposedly blocked effective responses?

What a hit piece. Looks to be full of accusations and no substance.

They weren’t gay they were fellow humans, they were children! Confused about sexuality and relationships in a damnable modern culture that has tossed away the old guideposts. Of course they committed suicide, and they won’t be the last.

The reason is the utter callousness of libertine sexual mores, and those “libertarians” who support it.

More “tolerance” for public perversions will bring on more of this callousness and dissolution, suicide in the morally confused young.

“...it’s not bullying when leftists do it...”

You are absolutely correct. Leftists are the biggest bullies and the most intolerant people on the planet.

Anoka-Hennepin sued over bullying Rights groups charge that the district didn't do enough to stop it.

Two national civil rights groups and a Minneapolis law firm filed suit against the Anoka-Hennepin School District on Thursday, claiming that staff members in Minnesota's largest district didn't do enough for students bullied because of their perceived or actual sexual orientation.

The federal lawsuit was filed on behalf of five current and former students, who say they've been peppered with demeaning slurs, stabbed with pencils, even urinated on by classmates. It seeks to end the district's sexual orientation curriculum policy, which allows teachers to discuss sexual orientation issues but requires them to maintain neutrality.

The north metro district defended the policy and also said it wants to work with the civil rights groups. Outside a Champlin school, leaders from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), National Center for Lesbian Rights and the law firm Faegre & Benson held a news conference to announce the legal action.

"Mother Jones" (what a ridiculous name for a magazine) is Marxist screed-rag best used for toilet paper. It has a circulation of about 12, so now they are desperately trying to get attention by employing a laughably weak correlation as hard evidence.

Here is a correlation that they can use: The sun rose yesterday and Obama acted like a traitor. Therefore, the sun causes treason.

I wonder if Palin had that district marked with a surveyor’s symbol on a congressional campaign map?
