Democrats thought they finally caught Florida Governor Ron DeSantis picking a fight that would blow up in his face.
But once again, Governor DeSantis is the one having the last laugh.
And Democrats realized they made a huge mistake when they saw the results of this devastating poll.
Democrats and their allies lied about the Parental Rights in Education legislation smearing it as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
The bill prevented teachers from bombarding children in grades K-3 with lessons about becoming transgender or living as a homosexual.
Democrats pressured the Walt Disney Corporation to oppose the bill in the hopes the biggest employer in Florida could force DeSantis to back down.
But Democrats severely miscalculated.
It tuns an overwhelming majority of Americans – including a healthy majority of Democrats – oppose grooming children into transgender or homosexual lifestyles.
The Wall Street Journal editorial board wrote:
“When Americans are presented with the actual language of the new Florida law, it wins support by more than a two-to-one margin.” That’s from a new poll by Public Opinion Strategies. Overall, 61% of people said they supported the “don’t say gay” law, with 26% opposed.
Even more notable is the breadth of that sentiment. Democratic voters in the poll support the law 55% to 29%. Among suburban voters, which could be a decisive group for the midterm elections, it’s 60% to 30%. Parents: 67% to 24%. Biden voters: 53% to 30%. Respondents who “know someone LGBTQ”: 61% to 28%. Those figures might come as a shock to Florida’s progressive activists, including those who happen to work at Walt Disney.
Democrats are on the losing end of the culture war because they continually pick ever more extreme fights.
Americans understand five-year-old kids have no business learning about transgenderism or homosexuality.
Children at that age have no ability to process what their teachers are bombarding them with about sexuality.
The only reason to inject gender identity and sexual orientation into kindergarten classroom lessons is to recruit children into those lifestyles.
Ron DeSantis stood up against this perverse plan to indoctrinate Florida school children with the Left’s increasingly bizarre cultural agenda.
And once again, Democrats badly misjudged the mood of the voters and defined their party by their opposition to a popular measure to protect school children.
