A recent poll conducted by Floridians for Economic Advancement reveals that 52 percent of the most politically active Democrats — DEMOCRATS — said “definitely no” or “somewhat no” when asked if students in kindergarten through third grade should be taught about sexual orientation in the classroom by their teachers.

The group asked 701 likely Democrat primary voters. The margin was 52-36 percent.

While the leftist elites in the media may want to push the sexualization of kids in schools, most Democrats aren’t much different than most unaffiliated voters and most Republican voters — they don’t.

Florida Democrats and the Rainbow Jihad have waged war against the common-sense legislation. After dubbing the bill as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, the local and national media hopped on board.

To be fair, an NBC News reporter called Marc Caputo has criticized the media’s coverage of the bill. Caputo said the bill does not say, ‘don’t say gay.’

“It says, don’t teach about these issues, in general,” he said. “So, you know, the reality is, ‘don’t say gay’ is technically not an accurate description.

“We made a big deal during Trump years, and rightfully so, and critics did, that the news media needs to start calling lies lies, and be very clear if something was baseless, was without fact, was supported or not supported by evidence or without evidence, and if something was false, we’d say he falsely state it. Well, to say this actually says ‘don’t say gay’ is false.”

While KCCI and The Des Moines Register and other mainstream media outlets in Iowa may make Republican ideas to push back against the sexualization of kids as bigoted or hateful or homophobic, the reality is these efforts are just a sign of sanity.

And even most Democrats recognize it. I’ve had conversations with close friends who are not Republican, at all. And they couldn’t stand Donald Trump. But when we talk about the books in libraries or biological boys playing girls’ sports, they couldn’t be more conservative.

That’s because, despite how the media makes things appear, most people aren’t crazy.

Now, I would caution legislators against making a decision on an issue like this based upon polling — when it comes to right and wrong, good and evil, that should matter an awful lot more.

But in addition to the benefit of simply doing what is right, on this, they can also do what is popular — they just have to drown out the noise from the mainstream media and liberal lunatics.

Once the noise is gone, reason still wins on this issue.

Protect the kids. Defend their innocence. Take action.

It is much easier than they think it is — and it is wildly more popular than they realize it is.
