TED NUGENT Defends Florida's 'Don't Say Gay' Law: 'It's About Parental Rights'

Ted Nugent has defended Florida’s controversial new “Don’t Say Homosexual” legislation, indicating that it is about offering mothers and fathers “the suitable to manual and nurture and educate their small children.”

The legislation, titled “Parental Rights In Education”, has been dubbed by critics the “Really don’t Say Homosexual” regulation mainly because it seeks to ban dialogue of gender and sexuality challenges with more youthful college students. Proponents of the law place out that it won’t point out the word “homosexual” even though it does, however, comprise the terms “sexual orientation” and “gender identification,” every single two times. The most notable aspect of the legislation provides that “classroom instruction by college personnel or 3rd parties on sexual orientation or gender id may perhaps not manifest in kindergarten through quality 3 or in a way that is not age proper or developmentally correct for students in accordance with condition requirements.” The law, however, does not define crucial terms like “age ideal” or “developmentally appropriate.” It would not even define the phrase “classroom instruction.”

Nugent weighed in on the laws, which was officially signed into regulation by Florida’s Republican governor Ron DeSantis, throughout yesterday’s (Wednesday, April 6) version of “The Nightly Nuge”, a news-design clip in which Ted provides his consider on the information of our globe every night. The 73-calendar year-outdated musician reported (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.Web): “[My wife] Shemane and I function incredibly carefully with some genuine commandos, some ex-particular forces men that are monitoring down baby intercourse traffickers. And there is certainly a term in that globe of child sex trafficking and pedophilia recognised as ‘grooming.’ And you wanna get started at a quite early age to influence the undeveloped, mushy minds of youth to accept evil. And it goes correct back to this full gender regulate by our authorities, media, academia, Big Tech. These people are pure evil, and they are grooming young folks to acknowledge the most evil of controls, and that is to sway them into complete slavery of electrical power abusers like the authorities, like academia, to command their minds. And I do not know what the endgame is, but it’s about manage, and it can be about, if nothing at all else, psychological and non secular slavery of young men and women. That they’re not teaching examining, producing and arithmetic or historical past, and that they’re graduating men and women with superior university diplomas in Philadelphia that cannot read. You can open up the web site of a guide, you can lay a newspaper in entrance of them, and they are not able to read through but have a significant college diploma.

“Our corrupt, evil, tyrannical powers that be in govt, media, Significant Tech, academia and Hollywood are grooming the youngest of Us citizens to command them in the most evil of techniques, for the reason that this is the basis of kid intercourse trafficking, when you can damage their identity and wipe out their north religious compass,” he continued.

“So, when we’re conversing about making it possible for youngsters to decide on their gender… In New Jersey, I understand that mothers and fathers in some jurisdictions usually are not allowed to place the gender of their baby upon beginning for the reason that they have to wait until the kid decides later on, even even though it is really clearly a boy or a girl. And now parents are fighting back again since as the media and governing administration lies by way of their tooth — every hour of each and every working day — claiming that the monthly bill in Florida is ‘Can’t Say Gay’ [sic] invoice. The word ‘gay’ does not exist. The invoice is about giving dad and mom the parental right, the most instinctual, crystal clear and present parental correct to guide and nurture and educate their youngsters and stay away from strangers to indoctrinate them as early as kindergarten. And they get in touch with it ‘Can’t Say Gay’ invoice. No person ever stated anybody won’t be able to say gay. It truly is about parental legal rights.

“So these are indicators that the media and this man Joe Biden are complete serial liars with a really unsafe and evil agenda to twist the minds of the most cherished among us — our very own children,” Nugent additional. “So Shemane and I stand up, and far more and much more moms and dads are standing up. And we did a rally in Florida recently exactly where mothers and fathers are now operating for college boards and they’re acquiring out the horrific agenda of this transgender, homosexuality. And if you wanna transgender, that’s… a disgrace. If you happen to be a homosexual, we support… your choice. But you should not you dare attempt to indoctrinate these harmless younger little ones. And that’s their agenda.”

A latest ABC Information/Ipsos poll uncovered that far more than 6 in 10 People oppose laws that would prohibit classroom lessons about sexual orientation or gender identity in elementary school.

At least two of Nugent‘s fellow rock musicians a short while ago publicly criticized the “You should not Say Gay” law. Past thirty day period, DISTURBED singer David Draiman, who introduced designs to relocate to Miami from Honolulu, took to his Twitter to share a Miami Herald short article about protests that have erupted in Florida immediately after the passage of the controversial invoice in the point out legislature, and he provided the subsequent information: ” This is fucking preposterous. #GAYGAYGAYGAYGAYGAYGAY”.

Draiman later on additional: “Of course, I study the monthly bill.

“I have an 8 calendar year aged son who has classmates whose family are LGBTQ+. We have quite a few mates that are LGBTQ+.

“Children are likely to ask issues about the entire world all over them and they have earned sincere, true answers.”

The very same working day, AVENGED SEVENFOLD frontman M. Shadows weighed in on Draiman‘s preliminary tweet, crafting: “As a mum or dad of a 7 and 9 12 months outdated they have asked about sex and employed the word ‘gay’ in derogatory trend. Kids are informed at this age so I really feel the quicker we explain and show empathy for all folks the better… which include in school. (I read through the complete monthly bill.)”
