Democrat parents in Florida are still throwing a hissy fit over the “Parental Rights in Education Act” and are threatening to leave the state over it which suits conservatives just fine.
“A new study of Florida residents says most of the state’s parents who are registered Democrats have considered leaving the state due to the Parental Rights in Education Act, and the Florida GOP is urging them to leave,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“Dubbed the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill by critics despite containing no reference to a specific sexual orientation, the act banned classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity through third grade. The law was later expanded to include all grades. Liberal pundits and Democratic politicians loudly decried the law, saying its provisions are harmful to gay and transgender youth,” the media outlet added.
The Williams Institute, a gay and transgender research center at UCLA Law School, released a new survey that shows 40% of leftist parents in Florida have considered fleeing over the “Parental Rights in Education Act.” The majority of Floridians support the bill that protects both children and parents in the Sunshine State.

“Abbie Goldberg, the study’s author, shared with the Washington Examiner that 53% of Democrat respondents had indicated that they had considered leaving the state, along with 40% of independents and 15% of Republicans. In contrast, 80% of Republicans said they have not considered leaving the state, along with 33% of Democrats and 40% of independents,” the Washington Examiner revealed.
“Over 60% of voters support the actual language in the law, including 55% of Democrats,” Christian Ziegler, the chairman of the Florida Republican Party, told the Washington Examiner in an interview. “With that said, if a Democrat Voter is passionate and perverted enough to support the sexualization of kids during school in grades as early as Kindergarten, then I would agree that Florida is probably not the best fit for them.”
According to the survey, public opinion is mostly split along party lines. Results show that 89% of Republicans support the law and that 29% of Democrats joined them. Only 20% of Democrats felt the law’s provisions for all grade levels should be expanded. Independents were split, with 47% supporting the initial version of the law and 40% supporting the expansion of it.
“It is important to understand the diverse viewpoints Florida parents have around the state’s Don’t Say Gay law,” Goldberg, a professor of psychology at Clark University, asserted via a statement. “These parents live in the same neighborhoods and send their children to the same schools. They have the power to work across differences to build strong communities that support the well-being of all children.”

Half of those saying they want out of Florida said they strongly wished to leave the state. Of those, 11% claimed they wanted to move within the next two years which is purportedly just fine with Republicans. Predictably, despite claiming they wanted to leave, most of those making noise “identified serious barriers to doing so,” including employment and financial limitations.
“This underscores the reality that for the most vulnerable individuals, moving may not be a realistic option, even as living in Florida becomes increasingly challenging,” the survey concluded.
Many enthusiastically encouraged Democrats to leave the state:

Red states need to pass more laws to force the Communists to leave. Pass them at every level of government. Start locally.

AWESOME! Make sure that they take any of their neighbors who are democrat with them – big bonus is Uhaul is almost giving away moving trucks/trailers to those moving out of Florida (I had to go 3 cities away to turn in a truck because those near me were full when we moved here…

Democrat parents want less control over their kids’ education? I don’t see how the law is preventing that to happen – it doesn’t require parents to be involved. It just allows them to be. I am not sure Democrat parents understand the law, but they are certainly welcome to…
