I don’t know about any of you, but I had never heard of this Dude/Dudette until the last few days via the blogsphere world…and from what I’ve pieced together it ain’t one bit pretty by any stretch of the imagination…that is if you consider yourself a normal person that resides in the good ol’ U.S. of A!

Anyway, to cut to the chase I just read one of the best reports yet about Dan Savage from his past to present…so may I present to you the ‘The World According to Dan Savage

Make sure and click this link if you want to learn more via links they have highlighted in this piece as well. This is via TB:

Sex advice columnist and anti-bullying crusader Dan Savage has made headlines over the past few days after unleashing expletives and harsh rhetoric against the Bible and Christian teens. Now, in the wake of the condemnation he’s receiving following his remarks at the National High School Journalism Conference last week, some conservatives are questioning the advocate’s close-knit relationship with the Obama administration.

Like many other school districts and organizations on the local level, the Obama administration has been taking on the issue of bullying. In doing so, officials have relied heavily on — and have promoted — Savage’s “It Gets Better” project. In fact, the relations between the Obama administration and the group are so tight that key government officials have even created videos for the campaign.

The natural question, especially in light of Savage’s controversial opinions and his most recent tirade against young Christians, is why the government has opted to partner up with the self-professed youth advocate’s group. After all, Savage, who is supposed to be working to help young people learn to better respect one another, called teenage Christians who walked out of his speech “pansy-assed” and has a history of problematic commentary.

While some would contend that these comments come short, in themselves, of constituting “bullying,” they certainly showcase the sort of behavior and rhetoric that Savage claims to resent. Here’s a clip from the speech he gave last week that has sparked intense controversy and scrutiny (caution: language):

Breitbart.com’s Ben Shapiro delves into his own criticisms of the anti-bullying leader, claiming that Savage is, himself, a bully and that his relations with the Obama administration are troubling:

But there’s much more to Dan Savage than just anti-religious bullying. He’s one of the biggest bullies on the planet. And he’s the point person the White House specifically chose – and fundraised for – in order to push their anti-bullying agenda.

Now, it’s not as though the White House was ignorant of the fact that the It Gets Better Project is run by Savage. On the contrary – search the White House website for Savage’s name, and two It Gets Better links come up. Not just that – in June 2011, Savage himself visited the White House and hung out with Administration officials.

In October 2010, the White House posted President Obama’s “It Gets Better” video, during which the leader of the free world railed against harassing gay youths (during this same month Senior Advisor to the President Valerie Jarrett spoke out in favor of the project as well):

The issue, of course, isn’t the message behind “It Gets Better,” which, as Shapiro notes, is certainly a worthy one. But as Savage is coming out with such seemingly hypocritical rhetoric, one wonders how the White House will respond and why, given Savage’s history, his group would gain administration support.

After all, the White House has even devoted a portion of its web site to his cause. Numerous administration officials, in addition to the president, have also recorded videos that mirror Obama’s.

The relationship, it seems, isn’t limited to mere video support.

In June 2011, as Shapiro notes, Savage and his partner Terry Miller made a visit to the White House where they participated in Obama’s “Pride Reception.” Savage, in an effort to get the president to complete his “evolution” on gay marriage, wore a pin that read, “Evolve Already.” Savage told the press at the time that he wanted to help Obama become accepting of gay marriage and predicted that the president will finally embrace it after he’s re-elected in Feb. 2013.

While at the event, Savage spent time with administration officials, including Kevin Jennings and Brian Bond, the Deputy Director of the White House’s Office of Public Engagement (Bond, as noted, has promoted the “It Gets Better” campaign on the White House web site). At the time, Jennings, a controversial figure to say the least, was serving as Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar.”

Shapiro provides the following refresher about Jennings‘ past:

Jennings, of course, was Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools at the US Department of Education. Prior to his selection by the Obama administration, he was the founder of [Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network] GLSEN, where he famously advised a teenage boy to use a condom after the boy came to him for advice about sex with men in a bus station bathroom. The incident prompted 53 House Republicans to call for his resignation. After the outcry, Jennings admitted he should have “handled the situation differently.”

Back in 2009, The Blaze’s Editor-in-Chief Scott Baker, along with an anonymous co-writer, provided an in-depth report on Jennings and some of the disturbing and controversial books his organization (GLSEN) was recommending for youths prior to his White House tenure. Baker and his anonymous source wrote:

Out of curiosity to see exactly what kind of books Kevin Jennings and his organization think American students should be reading in school, our team chose a handful at random from the over 100 titles on GLSEN’s grades 7-12 list, and began reading through.

What we discovered shocked us. We were flabbergasted. Rendered speechless.

We were unprepared for what we encountered. Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that weren’t merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between pre-schoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, semen flying through the air. One memoir even praised becoming a prostitute as a way to increase one’s self-esteem. Above all, the books seemed to have less to do with promoting tolerance than with an unabashed attempt to indoctrinate students into a hyper-sexualized worldview.

You can read more about these disturbing texts here. While these elements cannot be attributed to Savage, the idea that the two interacted does, indeed, create some questions (specifically when it comes to ideology). Additionally, their connection to the White House, as it did at the time of the initial reports about Jennings, causes pause.

Now, it’s important to note that “It Gets Better” is likely helping millions of youths get through the challenges they face on a daily basis. But when the group‘s founder is acting in contradiction of the organization’s values, certain discussions regarding the non-profit’s viability are warranted.

Some may look at the current situation and defend the administration’s connections to Savage and “It Gets Better” by claiming that the roots of the relationship were set far before Savage’s most recent verbal lambasting of Christians youths. While this is certainly true, Savage has consistently been a controversial voice, thus troubling language is something that Obama and his officials should have (or possibly were) aware of.

Back in July 2011, we covered his comments that monogamy holds the potential to destroy “more families than it saves.” Around the same time, he said of Republicans, ”I wish they were all f**king dead,“ during an appearance on ”Real Time With Bill Maher.”

Watch the segment below (caution: language):

Shapiro also dug up some of the other controversial statements that Savage made — and highly documented – before the Obama administration became cozy with his organization:

During 2009, Savage tried to coin the term “Saddlebacking” in order to target pro-Proposition 8 Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren; he defined the term as “the phenomenon of Christian teens engaging in unprotected anal sex in order to preserve their virginities.” Savage also said, “F— you, Utah,” since Mormons largely backed Proposition 8.

In 2006, Savage said that Green Party Senate candidate Carl Romanelli, who was running against Democrat Bob Casey (the eventual winner), “should be dragged behind a pickup truck until there’s nothing left but the rope.” Casey was so offended he refused Savage’s campaign donations.

In an article Savage wrote for Salon.com back in 2000, he outlined his sinister methodology — at least when it came to dealing with then GOP presidential Candidate Gary Bauer. In simply reading Savage’s own words, it seems as though he’s justifying bullying for the sole purpose of fighting against those he believes have mistreated the gay community:

In my Sudafed-induced delirium I decided that if it’s terrorism Bauer wants, then it’s terrorism Bauer is going get — and I’m just the man to terrorize him. Naked, feverish and higher than a kite on codeine aspirin, I called the Bauer campaign and volunteered. My plan? Get close enough to Bauer to give him the flu, which, if I am successful, will lay him flat just before the New Hampshire primary. I would go to Bauer’s campaign office and cough on everything — phones and pens, staplers and staffers. I even hatched a plan to infect the candidate himself. I would keep the pen in my mouth until Bauer dropped by his offices to rally the troops. And when he did, I would approach him and ask for his autograph, handing him the pen from my flu-virus incubating mouth.

My plan was a little malicious — even a little mean-spirited — but those same words describe the tactics used by Bauer and the rest of the religious right against gays and lesbians. The amount of gay bashing that goes on during Republican campaigns is staggering, so pervasive that the mainstream media tunes it out like so much white noise.

With all of this information in mind, it’s certainly warranted — at the least — to question the Obama administration’s connections to Savage. The president didn‘t tolerate Rush Limbaugh’s comments about Sandra Fluke, so one wonders how he and his administration are able to overlook these glaring issues (apparently MTV, too, ignores these incidents, as Savage was given his own show on the network geared toward young people).

As always…the msm remains mum about all of this. – ‘Color Me Furious‘..again!

So much to say, so little time…What say you? ~

  1. I just love these liberals, their so smart………even smarter than God. Were so lucky to have them. Meanwhile mooooooslems are stoning their women to death cutting their heads off and cutting out inner body parts. The only good Savage is named Michael.

    • Ditto regarding Michael Savage ~

    • Ricky Bobby says:

      Im scared of anyone who acts because of something their imaginary friend told them to do. I wonder how many of those people walking out are smiling because they are thinking, “That’s ok let him blaspheme our Lord and Savior. Im enjoying the thought of him burning for eternity in a lake of fire because he doesn’t believe something he read in a book written by men that I believe.” I think the Bible has a lot of good philosophy in it, unfortunately it was crafted as a control device and is used as such. Oh, you have a personal relationship with the creator of the entire universe? Please, tell me again how I’m so arrogant.

      • Well, you got me confused with exactly what your point is?

        Could you spell it out for a simpleton like me..without a bunch of gibberish.

        Do you agree with Dan or not?

        Thanks. ~

        Btw..it’s just been a long two days for me and my brain is on remote control..don’t want you to think I’m being rude…I’m just curious.

        • Ricky Bobby says:

          I agree on his points about the hypocrisy of some people who claim to follow the bible, but are more in favor of picking out and blowing up the importance of one part while ignoring others. For instance the recently elected Sheriff of my county who ran a faith based campaign is also a member of the local swingers club.(Or such is the rumor from others who enjoy the lifestyle in the area) He’s married with kids, and according to the articles he put out in the paper a devout Christian who is a long time member of a local church. Adultery much? Funny because I thought adultery was not only strictly forbidden by the Bible, but also illegal in this state. He got elected with plenty of pats on the back from the good ole boy club. You know how the old saying goes though: “You bang my wife, I’ll bang yours. Then on Sunday we can get together and high five about it.”

          • In other words to boil this down to the question I asked you…you are on the side of Dan Savage and his views. Correct?

            Btw..thanks for the reply, it is appreciated.

          • Ricky Bobby says:

            Some of his points—>Yes
            Gay disco man love world—->No

          • Thanks…I guess I see this thru my Viewfinder in Life calling that ‘Straddling the Fence’…but whatever works for all of us. We all see things differently…no doubt about that.

            Anyway…now you see why I was confused of just where you’re coming from.

    • Ricky; “God’s not willing that any should perish.”

      • Ricky Bobby says:

        I didn’t say that God did. I was talking about the thoughts of some who call themselves Christians. More than once I’ve heard, “That’s ok because he/she’s going to hell” (Or something similar) followed by a smirk as if the person is pleased to be thinking of another human being burning for eternity.

  2. Here are a couple stories I’ve read since posting this ~



  3. I heard Rush Limbaugh say this and it fits this homosexual to a tee.

    The only difference between Dan Savage and a bag of excrement….
    ….is the bag!!!!!

    • Hi Bluto…

      You heard Rush say what?… You lost me there. 😉

      • today Rush told that joke on his radio show – I laughed my ass off when he said it

        • Bluto…

          Dang it all…what joke, tell us..pretty please.

          I didn’t catch all of his show today so I’m lost. ~ I didn’t even know he talked about this subject. (Just heard Hannity radio say he was talking about this next tho)

          • Rush was talking to a caller and he said…the (left) global warming idiots think the only difference between him (Rush) and a bag of excrement…is the bag

            I thought if appropriate with this piece of crap…the only difference between Dan Savage and a bag of excrement ….the bag.

          • Bluto…

            Thanks…now I get what you were referring to in this instance…that was funny.

            Btw…I heard that dumb-ass caller, then had a phone call so missed the rest of it. 😉

    • Much lol! Hey Bluto: Great joke! Might use it on the show Wednesday night. Seriously,
      this clown needs to banned from the media for good. His teachings dovetail with a video
      that was produced and sold in ’09 by a Christian group whose name escapes me now.

      I watched their infomercial from beginning to end. And as I recall, the makers of the
      video mentioned Savage and his teachings which they labelled “sexual depravity and
      morally bankrupt.”

      The video also told of how the Obummer administration planned to muzzle the Church.
      Savage and his cronies are going after the weakest link first–attacking our children.

      The video also stated they would use the Supreme Court in their plans to outlaw
      christianity by calling it hate speech.

      As parents, grandparents, and evrything in between, we must stand strong for our
      kids. And as we know, the world is now a dangerous place.

  4. Another great column. Thanks bigtimer.

    As a christian, I know it’s my duty to follow the mantra “love the sinner but hate the sin”. Sorry, but most homosexuals cannot and will not refrain from practicing their vile behavior while thrusting such nefarious activities onto the public square. The monetary rewards and free publicity which the low life Democrat party provide them with is extremely imperative in enabling them to force the weak willed public into accepting the sin of homosxuality as a “lifestyle choice”.

    When I saw portions of this video being aired today on Fox, I didn’t even shutter nor react abruptly. For it has now become a major incentive for our society and others as well to sympathize with homosexuals while treating them as though they were helpless victims!

    So now we’re forced to dialogue about the epidemic regarding bullying and blaming Christianity and its precepts on the “unjustified treatment of homosexuals/lesbians on the Teachings of Chriist! As I have said before in earlier posts, the two most dangerous groups to emerge from the radical 60’s are the feminists and their “sisters-in-sin”, the homosexuals!

    Until they can fully eradicate every vestige of Christianity and traditional values from our culture, they will not rest! There’s just way too much at stake right now for each of these sinister and manipulative groups especially where their “sovreign” liberal god, “Hussein HopeChange is concerned. More than any other president before him, this devious imposter is determined to implement his initial 2008 campaign philosophy of “fundementlly transfoming America” by coercing America into fully supporting every and any demands introduced by these two Democrat supporting demonic lobbyists'”!

    • Hi Renee…and thanks.

      I didn’t catch that on F&F this morning…but I think the second link I posted below Tim has what you’re referring to in it.

      I’m tellin’ ya gal…I really have had my fill of this. Plus the double-standards/hypocrisy from the msm and everyone else on the left…where are their voices…eh?

    • Sister; Pray. 2 Timothy 3; 1-9, Pretty much covers whats going on today.

  5. John Henry Eden says:

    Like they used to say in the old Pace picante sauce commercials…”Get a rope!”

  6. Oscar2Marine says:

    Why do the libtards insist on poofs doing their speaking for them. Is it my imagination or isn’t there typically a difference between a male homosexual and a flaming Queen?

    • Good point Oscar…I know one thing, CNN and msDNC sure have a few Talking-Heads doing the talking for them on their daily shows, Fox has one too, that being Sheppard Smith. (sp)

  7. Read it and weep shout “kin i gits me uh a-men!?”

    • Lol…Red, looking forward to reading that and tweeting that too soon as I catch up with a few things around here.

      Thanks ~

    • Red…

      Did he ever tell it like it is…and then some!

      I sure snickered reading some of that…I like this question too:

      What’s the currently acceptable term for a gay male blogger? A blaggot? A glogger? A blomo?

      Hope the rest of you read this, it’s well worth the time.

  8. If any of you happen to listen to Hannity Radio, they are playing segmetns of Savage and going to have a big ol’ debate too in a few minutes.

    Gotta run for a bit…but I shall return. ~

  9. He’s a pillow-biting bum-buddy to probably dozens, but he calls straight kids “pansy-assed”? I’m betting he was frustrated as a kid assembling model airplanes and cars. The instruction to “insert tab ‘A’ into slot ‘B'” eluded him, I’m sure.

    What a useless waste of oxygen. I’m sure He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Reelected will name him his Religious Affairs Czar.

    • Hippo…

      HILARIOUS! Especially the first paragrahph.

      Thank you..I needed a good gut-laugh today…and you provided that, it hit me just right.

  10. KennakaKeeper says:

    This is only my opinion from what I’ve read and learned dealing with the issue of psycho/Socialpaths like this. Forget your previous beliefs about psychopaths and sociopaths. They are not all serial killers in fact almost none of them are. That image has been put out there for a particular reason. Many of the people who control society and the mass media are themselves psychopaths. They have a vested interested in making the rest of us think that anyone who is a psychopath is automatically a Ted Bundy type. The vast majority of psychopaths are completely socialized within normal society. They are not bug eyed serial killers, they are not crazies, they are not social misfits, they are not all criminals. In fact, very few of them are criminals in the actual legal, judicial sense. Many of the criminal ones will skirt around the margins of the law. Many of them are involved in criminal behavior but the majority of them go throughout life without any sense of conscience without any ability to empathize with another person’s feelings. They will leave a trail of misery: Psychological, emotional and financial ruin behind them as the move from one person, committee, group or political party to the next. According to most mental health professionals, one in twenty two people in Western society are a psychopath. Let that sink in for a second, one in twenty-two people is a psychopath. If you know twenty two people chances are that you have encountered a psycho path…..
    They will choose you, disarm you with their words, and control you with their presence. They will delight you with their wit and their plans. They will show you a good time but you will always get the bill. They will smile and deceive you, and they will scare you with their eyes. And when they are through with you, and they will be through with you, they will desert you and take with them your innocence and your pride. You will be left much sadder but not a lot wiser, and for a long time you will wonder what happened and what you did wrong. And if another of their kind comes knocking on your door, will you open it? Chances are you may…..That’s what their good at.

  15. ‘why the government has opted to partner up with the self-professed youth advocate’s group. After all, Savage……….’

    At Takimag theres an article, looks like hes gotten $$$ from corporations for his ‘charity'[?].
    Takis asking what name for a gay blogger [bloggot?]…
    Id say ‘Savage faggot’ might be a good handle for him.

  16. ‘Now, it’s important to note that “It Gets Better” is likely helping millions of youths get through the challenges they face on a daily basis.’
    Ahem, at Takis the writer of the Anti Savage piece is saying Stats say it Doesnt get Better!!![false hope].

    Remember Jennings is someone Obama wanted to have Power w/i Govt.

    ‘Out of curiosity to see exactly what kind of books Kevin Jennings and his organization think American students should be reading in school, our team chose a handful at random from the over 100 titles on GLSEN’s grades 7-12 list, and began reading through.
    What we discovered shocked us. We were flabbergasted. Rendered speechless.

    I dont care if someone is gay or not ( personally, I think its disgusting but there are some disgusting straight people too )… but what I cant fathom is; what is it about sticking your penis in another mans anus that makes them sooooo special. I mean really…. Its none of my business yet THEY go our of thier way to make it so.
    Keep it to yourself boys!

    The Bible does say that in the last days that people will call what is evil, good and what is good, evil ( Isaiah 5:20, 1 Timothy 1:8-10, Rev 21:8 ) this butt pirate is a great example of that…. so are most liberals. Something that ALL of us who claim to believe the Bible should heed.

    • This is the issue I do not understand. Why is it necessary to have it shoved in our faces on a daily basis about who they have relations with? Where are the parades for people who prefer blondes over brunettes or skinnies over fatties?

      As for the recommended books from GLSEN, it makes me think about NAMBLA and the horrendous scandal at Penn State.

  21. bigtimer says:

    Rock and Bandura…

    I concur with both of you…I’m so danged tired of having this shoved in front of us one way or the other daily, whether it’s a comedy show or the msm showing gays smooching on each other…I do not want to see that..let alone hear the constant whining from the various groups on the talking-head shows as well. – Plus the parades they have around this country…it’s disgusting what they wear or better yet don’t, let alone their actions during the parade etc. I also am disgusted with what they are doing to our schools across this nation too…on and on it goes.

    Enough already…leave us alone!
