Ron DeSantis has Democrats and their friends in the Lame Stream Media up in arms.
Florida’s Republican governor has been attacked in one partisan news article after another.
But now Democrats are blowing up after Tulsi Gabbard made one bold claim about Ron DeSantis.
Gabbard’s intellectual honesty is infuriating the radical leftists who have taken the Democrat’s party hostage.
Many of her views are out of step with the “woke” agenda taking over our country.
Now Gabbard has thrown down the gauntlet and sided with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on a critical issue.
DeSantis brought on a firestorm of controversy when he signed the Parental Rights in Education law, which prohibits public school teachers and other staff from pushing sexual orientation and gender identity propaganda on students in kindergarten through third grade.
And Gabbard thinks the law should be far more aggressive.
“You may have seen in the news recently or you may be a parent who’s experienced how parental rights are under attack all across the country as the government tries to usurp parents’ rights and responsibility to raise their own children. Now we should all support the Parental Rights in Education bill that recently passed in Florida, which very simply bans government and government schools from indoctrinating woke sexual values to a captive audience, a captive audience that is by law required to attend,” Gabbard said in a video message to her followers. “But as I read the legislation, I gotta tell you, I was shocked to learn that it only protects from kindergarten till third grade. Third grade? What about 12th grade, or not at all?”
Democrats across the nation were on the warpath almost instantly after DeSantis put the common sense law in place.
They would absolutely lose it if the law was extended to the 12th grade.
But Gabbard is absolutely right to point out what many parents are complaining about — that “woke sexual values” don’t have a place in education, much less inside compulsory government schools.
The lack of actual skills being taught is stunning as nonsense about “equity” and a preoccupation with sexuality is even being slipped into math “curriculum.”
Last night my wife brought to me a picture of MATH HOMEWORK, pictured below, from a student that she was tutoring that is in the Troy R-3 School District. Clearly this is not math homework, but an attempt to normalize sexual activity to our students behind the backs of parents! pic.twitter.com/TWE5iXkeiW

As Gabbard noted, government schools are allowing children to fall behind in essential math and reading skills while they push woke ideas about “gender identity.”
“Our schools are failing. Nationally, 34 percent of our students are below basic reading level in the fourth grade. Twenty-five percent of high school graduates are functionally illiterate,” Gabbard said. “Now I’m confident that if our schools focused on educating our kids . . . we would see our literacy rates improve and set our young people up for success.”
Republicans are starting to realize these aren’t merely the left leaning moderates that filled classrooms decades ago.
In recent years American schools have been invaded by stone-cold radicals dead-set on shaping—and fundamentally damaging—our children with their radical ideas.
