Florida Governor Ron DeSantis delivered a stinging blow to whining leftists and anti-democracy corporations on Monday when he signed the parental rights bill that has been ferociously opposed by the media, Democrats and celebrity degenerates, once again coming through for parents who have a champion in the battle against activist educators who have abused their positions of trust to sexualize young children.
The Sunshine State Republican made it official that the youngest Floridians are now off-limits to those seeking to pollute their impressionable minds when, with a stroke of his pen, he sent a message to the likes of Disney and the haughty cultural elitists who turned the Oscars into a bash Florida fest by signing HB-1557, the “Parental Rights in Education” bill into law.
DeSantis was cheered by the crowd at the Classical Preparatory School in Spring Hill after he put his signature on the bill which has been dishonestly tabbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, a gross mischaracterization of a law that is in no way hostile to gays as critics claim but bans the teaching of sexual content for kids in kindergarten through 3rd grade.
Today, I signed HB 1557, the Parental Rights in Education Act, into law.
It ensures parents can send their kids to kindergarten without gender ideology being injected into instruction and they will be notified and have the right to decline healthcare services offered at schools. pic.twitter.com/OLnW2GLrJl

“In Florida, we not only know that parents have a right to be involved, we insist that parents have a right to be involved,” DeSantis said during the press conference.
The governor’s wife Casey hailed the good news.
“As a mama of three little ones, thank you Dad for empowering parents, like me, and protecting Florida’s children, like ours. Classroom instruction about sexual orientation and gender identity with kindergartners is wrong – especially without a parent’s knowledge nor consent,” tweeted Mrs. DeSantis.

“They don’t want to admit that they support a lot of the things that we’re providing protections against,” DeSantis also said of the bill’s opponents. “For example, they support sexualizing kids in kindergarten. They support injecting woke gender ideology into second-grade classrooms. … And so what they’re doing with these slogans and these narratives is they are trying to camouflage their true intentions.”
The bill got some late attention during Sunday’s nationally televised 94th Academy Awards ceremony when the three leftist actresses who were hosting the grand soiree, Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer, and Regina Hall, engaged in a silly and pathetic routine where they accused all of the residents of one of the nation’s most populous states of being homophobic bigots and then breaking into a ridiculous chant of “gay, gay, gay, gay…”
"For you people in Florida, we're gonna have a gay night."

DeSantis hit the morally bereft denizens of Tinseltown in the one area that constantly occupies their dirty minds – below the belt.
“There’s even people in Hollywood that are opposed to providing protection for parents and enforcing parents’ rights, you know, the one thing I’ll say about that is if the people who held up degenerates like Harvey Weinstein, up as exemplars and as heroes and as all that,” he said, referring to the disgraced mogul, serial sexual predator and Democrat donor, “if those are the kinds of people who are opposing us on parents’ rights, I wear that like a badge of honor.”
DeSantis absolutely drops the hammer on Hollywood for their criticisms of Florida at the Oscars last night:

DeSantis also made it clear that he isn’t taking any guff from either Hollywood or big corporations that push an agenda that includes advocacy for the “grooming” of children.
Gov. DeSantis says that Florida will not compromise on the rights of parents:

Disney, which demanded that DeSantis not support the bill only to be rejected, threw a hissy fit, vowing to repeal the law in a show of how little respect the virtue-signaling entertainment colossus has for the democratic process, not surprising given their coziness with the totalitarians running China, a massive market for its products despite the communist nation’s deplorable human rights abuses, particular toward minority Uyghurs who are packed off to concentration camps.
Isn’t Disney supposed to be a family friendly company? Why do they want to teach K-3 grade children about sex and gender theory and hide it from parents? https://t.co/jM73jIUpxP

According to an angry statement from a spokesperson for the company that once promoted traditional values, “Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law. Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that.”
Also lashing out were the two Democrats who are seeking to throw themselves onto the tracks in front of the express train of the popular governor’s reelection bid in what will likely be a futile attempt to prevent a second term in Tallahassee for DeSantis.
“Ron DeSantis just signed his bigoted and homophobic Don’t Say Gay bill. This is unacceptable and we need to defeat him. Like and retweet if you agree,” hissed Charlie Crist, the state’s former Republican governor who jumped parties and slithered into bed with the Democrats during the Obama era.

“Ron DeSantis is using the pain of LGBTQ+ children to achieve his political ambitions,” squealed former weed lobbyist and sitting Florida agriculture secretary Nikki Fried, “We’re not going to let him get away with it.”

Fried later added, “gay,” the rallying cry of the activist left that may not be as popular with the larger electorate as it is with her party’s sexually-obsessed base.

There is a reason why DeSantis is easily winning the culture wars and Democrats and their allies are terrified that he will be an inspiration to leaders in other states who could pass similar laws to get the filth out of classrooms and put the decisions back into the hands of parents instead of the depraved activists who hijacked the nation’s educational system.
