Florida Dems Catch Flak For Cringey 'Don't Say Gay' Video

Ever been on social media and come across the phrase “the left can’t meme”?

Turns out, they can’t put together a funny video, either.

A group of Democrats caught more cringes than support during their latest attempt to be mockingly humorous on Twitter, when they posted video of a group of Florida Democrat lawmakers marching arm-in-arm down a hallway singing the word “gay” in response to a GOP-led effort to keep teachers from instructing kindergarteners on topics like same-sex relationships and transgenderism.

And the video...wasn’t good.

Suffice it to say, the video didn’t exactly land well on social media.

The “Parental Rights in Education” bill, dubbed by the left as “Don’t Say Gay,” doesn’t actually ban teachers from talking about their own same-sex families or the history of gay rights, or from teaching about sexuality in middle and high school classrooms. Rather, it simply states that discussions or lessons on "sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”

The bill has already passed the GOP-controlled Florida House and now makes its way to the Senate. Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has indicated that should the bill land on his desk, he will sign it into law.
