Harvard's ACT UP exhibit posterThey’re running out of ammo.  The right-wing nuts that have been trying, and miserably failing, to bring down Kevin Jennings, Obama’s “safe schools czar,” are now trying to use ACT UP as a smear (see WorldNetDaily).  It seems Kevin was one of many supporters for a currently running exhibit at Harvard titled ACT UP New York: Activism, Art, and the AIDS Crisis, 1987-1993, which the wingnuts are calling “radical porn” (click on the exhibit poster for a closer look).  Even worse, he may have even been a member of ACT UP way back when.  The horror!

You see, by wingnut logic, that means Kevin actively supports each and every thing every past member of ACT UP has done (or will do), including the condom on Helms’ house (yup, they mention this), dropping the Eucharist (also mentioned), and saving millions of lives (oops, they missed this one).

This is another Jennings smear which really isn’t one.  ACT UP membership was and always will be a badge of honor.  Just as the wingnuts have lost the battle to smear the memory of Harvey Milk, they will fail in their efforts to tarnish other glorious moments in our history.

We will not be shamed.
