Democrats are so upset that teachers have been discouraged from having sexually explicit conversations with four- to eight-year-olds that they are making it the centerpiece of their 2022 Campaign. They are erecting billboards like this across Florida in response to what they (and their media) are calling the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Because if they cited the bill’s actual language — “A school district may not encourage classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity in primary grade levels or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students.” — too many people would agree with it.
Here’s the thing. They know “Don’t Say Gay” is a lie. Just like they knew “fine people on both sides” was a lie. But they also know it’s effective propaganda and will raise lots of money from affluent alphabet people. It’s also a potential distraction from skyrocketing energy costs and the imminent food shortages.
The Bulwark is, of course, siding with the Democrats on this. Conserving conservatism by encouraging grooming, I guess.Published in
