Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis is not letting the mainstream media wrestle away the narrative of HB 1557 —what critics incorrectly and dishonestly refer to as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill.
According to the Daily Wire, “[WFLA’s Evan Donovan] asked whether DeSantis supported the legislation, which was on the Florida Senate floor, noting that critics have renamed it the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill.”
“Does it say that in the bill?” DeSantis asked, interrupting.
“I know that you support —” Donovan tried again.
“Does it say that in the bill?” DeSantis repeated the question.
“I’m asking —” Donovan protested, but DeSantis pushed back immediately.
“I’m asking you to tell me what’s in the bill, because you are pushing false narratives,” DeSantis continued. “It doesn’t matter what critics say.”
“It bans classroom instruction on sexual identity and gender orientation,” Donovan pressed.
“For who?” DeSantis asked. “For grades pre-k through three. So five year olds, six year olds, seven year olds — and the idea that you wouldn’t be honest about that and tell people what it actually says, it’s why people don’t trust people like you because you peddle false narratives.”
“So we disabuse you of those narratives — and we’re going to make sure that parents are able to send their kid to kindergarten without having some of this stuff injected into their school curriculum,” DeSantis concludes.
