Joe Biden continues to try and turn Florida Governor Ron DeSantis into a new boogeyman for the Left now that Donald Trump is out of office.
This strategy continues to fail.
And Joe Biden picked a fight with Ron DeSantis. But a skeleton from Biden’s closet changed everything.
Florida Governor DeSantis supports legislation that would prevent radical activists from indoctrinating children with the homosexual or transgender agenda for kids in kindergarten through third grade.
The Biden administration attacked the legislation as “bigoted” because it prevents left-wing activists from brainwashing children in schools.
New York Post reporter Steven Nelson confronted White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the fact that in 1994, Joe Biden voted for legislation that was even more restrictive than the Florida legislation by banning all federal funds from promoting the homosexual lifestyle.
“Regarding the Florida bill: In 1994, when many of us in this room were in school, President Biden actually voted for a much broader restriction that banned federal funds from being used for, quote, “the promotion of homosexuality as a positive lifestyle alternative,” Nelson asked.
Psaki completely ducked the question, claiming Biden attacking the Florida bill was all that really mattered.
“Well, I think that you have seen the President speak passionately about his view that a bill like this — a bill that would discriminate against families, against kids, put these kids in a position of not getting the support they need at a time where that’s exactly what they need — is discriminatory. It’s a form of bullying. It is horrific. I mean, the President has spoken to that,” Psaki responded.
Nelson was not about to let Psaki get off that easily, demanding to know why Biden supported the same policy he now condemns.
Psaki stuck with the bob-and-weave strategy of not directly answering the question, stating:
I think what’s important to note here is how outspoken the President has been against discrimination against kids, against members of the LGBTQI+ community. And what we’re looking at here is a bill that would propagate misinformed, hateful policies and impact children…
So that’s the question I hope — maybe you can pose that to some of the leaders in Florida. Maybe they’ll return your phone calls. And I’ll look forward to having a conversation with you.
The real answer is that there used to be some sanity in the Democrat Party, and Americans of all political backgrounds understood teachers shouldn’t brainwash kids with lessons about sexual orientation and gender identity.
But since the Democrat Party is now captured by a base of radical leftists, any politician who wants to advance must subscribe to their bizarre agenda.
