Left wing progressives continue to use inflated, false branding in their goal to move the country further and further towards a socialist regime. Using the term “racist” for anyone who disagrees with their extremist views is one example. Another is calling the January 6 protestors “insurgents.” Yes, they were disruptive, yes, lawbreaking was involved. But Words have to have meaning, and the continuous mislabeling of the U.S. Capitol breach as an “insurrection” is an example of how a false narrative can gain currency and cause dangerous injustice.
The latest attempt at a false narrative Is the calling HB1557 the “don’t say gay” law. The bill supports the right of parents to be involved in decisions regarding their children's well-being and to limit discussion of gender and sexuality issues in classrooms. No matter how many times they call Florida’s HB1557 "don't say gay" it does not change the fact that there is a huge difference between acceptance of adult gay couples and the attempt to normalize the idea of young children changing their gender.
Words matter. I hear Republicans and even so-called conservative news broadcasters use these terms created by the left. Republicans need to stop mimicking this language — as long as we do, they win. It’s the “Parents Rights” law, nothing else.
