Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is looking better and better.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) made it clear on Monday that he does not care what leftists in Hollywood think of his governing – prioritizing parental rights – deeming their opposition as a “badge of honor.”
DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education act on Monday, which the left has repeatedly lied about, dubbing it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, even though it does not ban a word, phrase, or single out sexual orientation. Rather, it simply bars age-inappropriate classroom discussions on sexual orientation and gender identity for children in kindergarten through third grade, or five, six, seven, and eight-year-olds.
“We will continue to recognize in the state of Florida, parents have a fundamental role in the education, healthcare, and well-being of their children. We will not move from that,” DeSantis declared.
“I don’t care what corporate media outlets say. I don’t care what Hollywood says. I don’t care what big corporations say. Here I stand. I’m not backing down,” the governor said to applause.
The governor also spoke directly about people in Hollywood who are opposed to providing protections for parents, making it clear that their opinion is irrelevant.
“If the people who held up degenerates like Harvey Weinstein up as exemplars and as heroes and as all that, if those are the types of people that are opposing us on parents’ rights, I wear that like a badge of honor,” he said to applause.
I would add that the industry that gave us Stepin Fetchit is in no position to lecture the rest of us about our bigotry. I would also say that the representatives of a profession that has become notorious for sexually abusing women and children ought not to be questioning the rights of parents to know what their young children are being taught in schools and whether depraved teachers are indoctrinating their children in values quite contrary to their own or grooming them for their own purposes. There is a word for adults who like to talk to children about sexual matters and then insist that these conversations should remain “our little secret” that Mommy and Daddy don’t need to know. If Hollywood wants to be pro-pedophile, so much the worse for them.
I also think these vapid, empty-headed celebrities should stop pontificating on subjects they know little about and are not their concern and concentrate on doing their jobs, entertaining the rest of us. Maybe then they would produce movies that are actually worth watching.
