“If the people who held up degenerates like Harvey Weinstein as exemplars and as heroes and as all that, if those are the types of people that are opposing us on parents’ rights, I wear that like a badge of honor,” DeSantis said.

Gov. Ron DeSantis signed Florida’s anti-grooming bill into law Monday after Democrats and Hollywood critics falsely labeled it “Don’t Say Gay” legislation.

The measure, known as the “Parental Rights in Education” bill, is a classroom instruction ban on age-inappropriate teachings of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” for children in kindergarten through third grade statewide.

During the signing, DeSantis fired back at Hollywood elites who have contributed to misconceptions about the legislation protecting elementary school students from activist educators using the classroom as a soapbox for leftist causes.

“If the people who held up degenerates like Harvey Weinstein as exemplars and as heroes, and as all that, if those are the types of people that are opposing us on parents’ rights, I wear that like a badge of honor,” DeSantis declared.

The bill was mocked at the Oscars on Sunday night, with co-hosts Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer, and Regina Hall repeating the word “gay” as the crowd applauded.

“They don’t want to admit that they support a lot of the things that we’re providing protections against,” DeSantis continued during the signing ceremony.

DeSantis said the bill’s opponents “support sexualizing kids in kindergarten” and “support injecting woke gender ideology into second-grade classrooms.”

“And so what they’re doing with these slogans and these narratives is they are trying to camouflage their true intentions,” DeSantis stated in his speech.
