Most of us know by now that we can’t trust most of our press. The so-called “Associated Press” should be called “Pravda West”. There is no more reporting of facts. Most if not all so-called “news” is reported through a leftist filter. The political left has cleverly branded a law that prohibits teachers from having conversations about sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K to 3 the “ Don’t Say Gay” bill.
What does this bill actually say. One section says schools generally “may not discourage or prohibit parental notification of and involvement in critical decisions affecting a student’s mental, emotional, or physical health or well-being.” Parents also can’t be blocked from “education and health records created, maintained, or used by the school.”
Another section says: “Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age-appropriate.”
So why isn’t this bill being called “the stand-up for parent rights” or “don’t harm our kids” “we are the parents” bill or something that correctly labels it for what it is. Instead we Republicans repeat the false branding that the left has given it. (Fox News constantly does it too. ) Just like when the left started calling the protest and break-in by some over zealous and fringe members of the protest an “insurrection.” Lookup the word insurrection - seriously were these people led by the guy in the Chewbacca with horns outfit capable of overthrowing our government?
We have to stop perpetuating the left’s political branding and quickly condemn it and change it when it arises. We have to strongly use our own labels. “Let ‘s go Brandon” was very effective. We need more of this.
