Radical Democrats are on the run.
Whether it’s about economic matters, public school indoctrination, or a slew of other issues, polling shows that everyday Americans are seeing through Democrats’ lies.
Now, a far-left Senator showed why the Left is in trouble with one stammering response.
In an interview with Fox News anchor Bret Baier, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) made a dishonest claim about Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law.
Murphy claimed that the Florida law was a campaign to “target gay kids in schools” and said, “I am very concerned about the sort of very quick, hateful, divisive turn that the Republican Party has taken. This effort in Florida to sort of target gay kids in schools, I just think is mean-spirited and something that I had not seen from the Republican Party when I first started out in politics 20 years ago.”
That’s not at all the intent or outcome of the Florida legislation that Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law and Murphy was just peddling tiresome talking points that can easily be swatted away.
Surprisingly, for once, a TV news anchor did just that.
Baier replied, “Hold on, I’m going to interrupt you. To target gay kids in schools? The bill is about not talking about sexual identity from K through third grade. That’s not targeting gay kids.”
Trying to deflect, Murphy said, “Half of trans kids in this country have contemplated suicide, and that’s because of the effort to bully them for their identity by adults in this country. So I absolutely do think that there’s a message sent to these kids when you suggest that a conversation about their identity is somehow threatening the education of kids in our schools.”
But Baier remained focused on the actual topic, what’s in the bill.
He pushed back, saying, “Senator, do you talk to your kindergartner about sexual identity? With your children, did you talk about sexual identity as a kindergartner? I mean, you don’t talk about the birds and the bees, let alone the birds and the birds, at that age, kindergarten through third grade.”
Of course Murphy didn’t answer the question.
How could he?
A poll released by Public Opinion Strategies found that 61% of those polled supported the law when it was described accurately, and only 26% opposed the law.
Even among Democrats, 55% said they supported the bill while only 29% said they opposed the bill.
The Democrats have gone so far out into left field on social issues that their lying and obfuscation just isn’t working any more.
Democrats may be in for a cold November.
You love to see it.
