LGBT Republicans Blasted Biden For Targeting Florida Parental Rights Law

Last week President Joe Biden signed an executive order regarding equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex individuals. Patriot One News streamed the event live.

According to Newsmax, the executive order aimed to diminish the practice of so-called conversion therapy, and prevent youth suicide. It also allowed the homeless to seek shelters consistent with their gender identity.

During the White House signing ceremony, Joe Biden in typical “divider in chief” fashion took the opportunity to focus more on slamming Florida Governor Ron DeSantis than the bill itself. Biden attacked DeSantis (FL-R) and Florida’s law that forbids instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade.

Democrats and Biden have since falsely coined the Florida bill as the “Don’t Say Gay Bill,” despite the fact that there isn’t a single mention of not being able to say “gay” in the bill. The Democrats continue to use the fraudulent claim as a political talking point to bash Republicans ahead of the 2022 midterms. Biden even used an activist who organized protests against Florida’s bill to introduce the President during last week’s executive order.

LGBT Republicans are furious with Biden’s attack on DeSantis and the bill and have called the President misleading and demonizing. “It’s unfortunate that President Biden again used a podium at the White House this afternoon to mislead on and demonize the common sense parental rights law in Florida and other similar bills across the country that protect young children from woke lesson plans around gender and sexual identity,” Log Cabin Republicans said in a statement.

“While some of the executive orders he announced today [Wednesday] are long overdue, LGBT conservatives will not support the federal government trampling over the rights of states to stop Leftist activists from infusing more woke identity politics into kindergarten classrooms.”

Biden also took a moment during the LGBT executive order signing ceremony to shame the “ultra-MAGA” agenda, “I don’t have to tell you about the ultra-MAGA agenda attacking families and our freedoms. Three hundred discriminatory bills introduced in states across this country. In Texas, knocking on front doors to harass and investigate parents who are raising transgender children. In Florida, going after Mickey Mouse, for God’s sake. That’s striking close to home.”

Biden was referring to the political fight between Florida and The Walt Disney Co. over Parental Rights In Education Law.

Neither Florida nor DeSantis is “going after Mickey Mouse”. The bill that Biden keeps referring to and attacking, again, simply forbids instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade.

Disney, however, joined Democrats in using similar misleading rhetoric to lie to Floridians suggesting the bill includes “don’t say gay”. Disney slammed Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill after the legislation was officially signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis back in May.

“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,” the Disney company said in a statement. “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. We are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country.”

DeSantis was forced to hit back at Disney giving Democrats more fuel to add to the fire.

The LGBTQ White House signing included comments from Javier Gomez, an 18-year-old activist who organized protests against the Florida bill. He credited his openly gay fifth-grade teacher for helping him understand his identity.

“I fear other students in Florida and across the country will not be able to get the same support because of hateful legislation like the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill,” Gomez said, the Washington Examiner reported. “But my presence here is a testament that we are fighting back.”

As originally reported by Newsmax, Log Cabin Republicans President Charles Moran took exception to Gomez’s comment.

“They’re waxing on Ron DeSantis and the Florida parental rights bill, which they continue to misname,” Moran said, the Examiner reported. “It was somewhat comical that the high schooler they brought up there, who talked about his being in school in Florida and organizing those walkouts, that student isn’t even affected by the legislation.”

Moran noted that the Florida law only affects classroom instruction and conversations between individual students and teachers.

“There’s a difference between conversations and curriculum,” Moran said, the Examiner reported. “Conversations are not prohibited.”
