Trash-talking, far-left Hollywood actor Ron Perlman is being bashed by the right and praised by the left for posting a video to Twitter of himself calling Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis a “Nazi” over the just-signed Parental Rights in Education bill.
Like many others who’ve accepted the media’s false narratives hook, line and sinker, Perlman believes the law prohibits children and teachers from saying the word “gay.”
The legislation, in actuality, simply prohibits age-inappropriate discussions of sex and gender, particularly around young children in kindergarten through third grade.
Moreover, polls have consistently shown that a majority of Floridians — including a majority of Democrats — support the bill.
But none of this appears to matter to Perlman.

“Good morning, Gov. DeSantis. Ron here. Um, don’t say gay? ‘Don’t say’ as the first two words in a sentence spoken by a political leader of a state in the United States of America. Don’t say? Don’t f–king say, you f–king Nazi pig. Say! First Amendment. Read about it. Then run for office, you piece of s–t,” he rants in the clip above.
As of Wednesday morning, the video tweet boasted over 45,000 likes from far-leftists eager to praise Perlman for calling out the alleged “Nazi” in Florida.
But the tweet likewise boasted over 27,000 comments, an overwhelming majority of them highly critical of the habitually angry Hollywood actor and his “ignorance.”
As several critics put it, perhaps he should read the bill:
Good morning Ron. Reading is hard. We get it. Here’s a thought to brighten your morning. Perhaps you could have one of your peeps read the bill to you?
Here’s a link (you click on it). Reading opens up a whole new world. https://t.co/L4z812Jmg7

Read the bill. It’s not long or difficult. Unless you think teaching Sex Ed to Kindergarteners is a good idea.

Read before telling others to read, Mr. Perlman. Just a thought.

Included among the critics were plenty of Americans who personally know LGBT couples but who nevertheless support the Florida law. Even some members of the LGBT community themselves joined the anti-Perlman backlash.
Why? Because like their heterosexual counterparts, they believe that a teacher’s sexuality and sex life shouldn’t be a topic for school discussion, if for no other reason than to prevent the teacher from grooming his or her students.
My nephew is 5 and he has 2 moms. He knows nothing about sexuality or how he got here. He never asks because 5 year olds don’t care. He loves both his moms. If asked, why can’t the teacher just say ‘because they love each other’ and move on?? It’s not her place to say more.

There’s a gay teacher that was interviewed and he basically said it’s my job to share my personal life with my students? Huh? WTF? I remember the complete opposite even I was in school. I’m a lesbian btw and I don’t feel it’s my duty to tell little children anything about sex!

Disgusting. I’m gay and FULLY SUPPORT this bill. It’s common sense and anyone supporting the introduction of sexuality and the current gender insanity to children is morally bankrupt as there is no defensible argument for grooming indoctrination of kids. #progressivefilth

Dude you’re so out of line . And off subject it’s not even funny. So you feel it’s the governments responsibility to teach our children NOT the governments NOT THE schools but OUR children about sex. Teach my kids reading writing and arithmetic. Not your personal life. FOOL

Not all of the criticism faced by Perlman was substantive. Some critics chose to just bash him for the fun of it. Though in their defense, their criticisms were amusing.
Is he auditioning for the part of Stephen King’s “It”?

Despite their disagreement with the likes of Perlman, conservatives hope that leftists double, triple and quadruple down on their promotion of teachers discussing sex and gender with little children.
The hope is that the public’s support for Florida’s bill and disdain for the likes of Perlman transfers to the ballot box come November.
Spectacular. Please buy ads and make sure more parents see this video.
