DeSantis Stands Up to the Rainbow Mafia
Florida’s GOP governor is taking heat for defending the sexual innocence of his state’s K-3 kids.
“In Florida, we not only know that parents have a right to be involved, we insist that parents have a right to be involved.”
So said Governor Ron DeSantis, he of The Free State of Florida, at a press conference yesterday at the Classical Preparatory School in Spring Hill, where he signed into law the Parental Rights in Education bill, which protects children in grades K-3 from the sex-obsessed agenda of the Rainbow Mafia and its fellow groomers and indoctrinators.
Opponents of the bill call it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, but there’s nothing in it that prohibits the utterance of that once-lovely word. What the bill does do, though, is prohibit classroom instruction on “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” with children in third grade or younger, “or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”
In short, the bill safeguards their innocence. It lets kids be kids.
To us this seems so obvious. But, hey, perhaps the Left hasn’t yet learned the lessons taught at the ballot box in Virginia last November. And as for Floridians who disagree with DeSantis’s approach, nothing prohibits them from discussing transgenderism with their kindergartners at home, nor from moving to, say, a “progressive” state like New York or California, where such instruction is no doubt a more integral part of the formative curriculum.
These freedoms, though, didn’t stop the pro-grooming crowd from going after the governor. Our Emmy Griffin wrote recently about Woke Disney’s hissy fit. And, indeed, the wholesomeness of Hollywood was on full display during Sunday night’s Oscars, when, between breaks from b*tch-slapping each other, they childishly repeated the word “gay” to the delight of, well, themselves.
DeSantis, who has a genius for wading into all the right battles, sent a salvo out Tinseltown’s way: “If the people who held up degenerates like Harvey Weinstein as exemplars … are opposing us on parents’ rights, I wear that like a badge of honor.”
Two other ankle-biters also weighed in: Creepy Joe Biden called it “a hateful bill,” and Stretch Pelosi said, “This cruel legislation is an affront to our Nation’s cherished values and sends a harmful message to our children.”
Apparently, You kids be kids and focus on the 4 Rs is “a harmful message to our children.” (The fourth R is “recess,” in case you were wondering.)
As for “harmful messages,” consider the shocking case of January Littlejohn, a Florida mom whose 13-year-old daughter was — for lack of a better term — preyed upon by school officials:
This is the fight we’re engaged in.
What about the Left’s collective wrath, you ask? What about the potential for industry-wide and even statewide retribution against the Sunshine State?
“We are not concerned about boycotts or other economic harm to Florida as a result of any legislation,” said DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw. “But even if we were: No amount of money would convince Governor DeSantis to change his position. He will always stand for parental rights and protecting children.”
Is it any wonder that freedom-loving folks keep flocking to The Free State of Florida?
