Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R) is stepping up his efforts against an insidious campaign to sexualize children.
The conservative leader is cracking down on sexual drag queen shows involving children, Breitbart reported.
DeSantis cracks down on sexual drag shows
The governor’s action was prompted by alarming scenes from a Miami restaurant, where a virtually naked drag performer — with dollar bills stuffed inside a thong — was seen taking a little girl by the hand in a viral video.
Such obscene images have become common on social media, sparking outrage and concern among many Americans that the LGBT “Pride” movement, which has the support of the Biden administration and major corporations including Florida-based Disney, is beginning to normalize pedophilia.
DeSantis told reporters that he is disconcerted by the “disturbing trend” and that Florida has begun an investigation into R House in Wynwood, which could lose its liquor license.
Agents from the Department of Business and Regulation began dropping in on the restaurant and found that it had a kids’ menu, DeSantis said. A complaint against the restaurant noted that performers were seen simulating sex acts around minors.
“Having kids involved in this is wrong,” DeSantis said. “That is not consistent with our law and policy in the state of Florida. And it is a disturbing trend in our society to try to sexualize these young people. That is not the way you protect children. You look out for children.”
Groomer left singles out DeSantis
The governor said that he takes the issue personally because he is a father to little kids himself. Kids should be allowed to be kids without having an agenda forced on them, he said.
“And so I think parents, particularly this time in society’s history, should be able to have their kids go to kindergarten, watch cartoons, just be kids, without having some agenda shoved down their throats all the time. And that’s what we’re fighting for,” he said.
The amazing thing is that in today’s political climate, the governor’s comments are somehow controversial.
Democrats have bitterly rejected use of the term “groomer” to describe LGBT ideologues sexualizing children, and many on the left insist that those concerned by the trend are swept up in a moral panic.
President Biden has made inviting children to experiment with sexuality and permanent sex change procedures into a moral crusade, presenting himself as an ally of so-called “trans youth,” while singling out DeSantis for his firm resistance to the agenda.
