A potential piece of legislation being considered in Florida to protect young children from conversations about gender identity and sexual orientation has been labeled “hateful” by President Joe Biden.
The bill, spearheaded by Republican State Senator Dennis Baxley, says it is designed to protect children from confusing conversations before they’ve adequately matured, as well as topics that should be covered with their parents, not in school. “Some discussions are for (having) with your parents” said Baxley.
I want every member of the LGBTQI+ community — especially the kids who will be impacted by this hateful bill — to know that you are loved and accepted just as you are. I have your back, and my Administration will continue to fight for the protections and safety you deserve. https://t.co/OcAIMeVpHL

“And I think when you start having sexual-type discussions with children, you’re entering a very dangerous zone. Your awareness should pop up right away, this isn’t teaching.” Baxley also assured proponents of the bill that it is applicable only to “procedures” and “curriculum.”
President Biden is interpreting the legislation as a bigoted attack on gay kids. “I want every member of the LGBTQI + community – especially the kids who will be impacted by this hateful bill – to know that you are loved and accepted just as you are” tweeted President Biden on Tuesday.
“I have your back, and my Administration will continue to fight for the protections and safety you deserve.” He also retweeted an earlier post from the White House which was critical of Florida’s proposed bill which read: “Today, conservative politicians in Florida advanced legislation designed to attack LGBTQI + kids. Instead of making growing up harder for young people, @POTUS is focused on keeping schools open and supporting students’ mental health.”
Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is also supportive of the measure and supports legislation that protects family rights. “I think that what you’ve seen in Florida, parts of the country, is schools keeping parents out of these decisions…and I don’t see how you can do that” said DeSantis.
“I also think one of the things that I think the legislature is getting at is everything should be age-appropriate…my goal is to educate kids on the subjects, math, reading, science, all the things that are so important. I don’t want the schools to kind of be a playground for ideological disputes” DeSantis continued.

Hannity exclusive: Sara Carter talks to NYC parents about migrant influx affecting schools
Sara Carter went directly to the streets of New York City to talk to parents about how the migrant crisis is affecting the education of their children in the schools of the big apple. Exclusive to ‘Hannity’ Carter spoke with several parents.
The schools are already struggling, said one concerned father. The migrant crisis and thousands of families with children attempting to get education, combined with the city’s resources being cut across the board in combination with redistributing resources to fight the consequences that come with the migrant influx.
Children are already being faced with catching up from the learning losses during covid, the father continued. Nationally, students are grades behind where they should be due to covid-19 protocols such as quarantining for days and work from home curriculum. Now, adding the thousands of migrant children will create even more of a strain said the father.
We need to stop creating a fantasy world that everyone can come here, stated another concerned parent.
