Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ spokeswoman, Christina Pushaw, had just one word for the celebrities’ chanting of the word “gay” in reference to the Parental Rights in Education bill at the Oscars Sunday night.
“CRINGE!!!!” Pushaw said in response to three celebrities chanting the word “gay” repeatedly at the Oscars to mock Florida legislation limiting classroom discussions of sexuality.
Oscars hosts Amy Schumer, Regina Hall, and Wanda Sykes on stage together said, “We’re gonna have a great night tonight, and for you people in Florida, we’re gonna have a gay night.”
Then the trio sang the word “gay” in unison about a dozen times as the crowd cheered.
Notable mention, Florida resident and actor John Travolta didn’t seem amused at the blunder taking place.
In other tweets, Pushaw said “Being attacked by these degenerates is a badge of honor,” and jokingly said that “Florida will never recover from this.”
The bill, which liberals misleadingly call “Don’t Say Gay,” now bans school districts from teaching gender politics and sexual orientation issues to children up to, and including third grade.
Earlier this month, Florida’s Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez discussed the parental rights bill and pleaded for people to just “read the bill”.
“I think the radical left and people like Jen Psaki are too, busy regurgitating, the same old tired talking points,” said Florida’s Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez. “They should just read the bill.”
“This bill is about parental rights. It’s about making sure that children are not indoctrinated. You know, my parents came from Cuba in 1961 fleeing, communism, the very things that we’re trying to avoid kids were being indoctrinated. They were being made wards of the state and so we’re very firm here in Florida under Governor DeSantis’s leadership that we want to protect our children,” added Nuñez.
“We want to give parents the ultimate decision-making and everything from their education, to their health care. And so, I think that that is something that we pride ourselves on. And if people would just simply read the bill, Oh they would see that this is something all parents myself, included agree with strenuously,” concluded Nuñez.
While corporate media has dubbed the legislation the “Don’t Say Gay” bill and even White House press secretary Jen Psaki chimed in calling the bill “horrific” and “discriminatory,” the bill does not ban the word “gay” and would still allow classroom lessons about sexuality for young children beginning in the fourth grade.
The bill was passed by the Florida Senate on March 8 and was signed into law by DeSantis today.
