    Not the Bee ^ | April 20, 2024 | Harris Rigby
    his monologue from last night's Real Time with Bill Maher is the definition of a must-watch. The guy who came out pro-baby murder (in his own words) last week made it his mission this week to protect kids. This guy doesn't even like kids, but he sees what we've been pointing out for years. After the video, I'll summarize Maher's points., this monologue has EVERYTHING! Like, I think he may have stumbled across Not the Bee before putting this monologue together. Maher goes through the recent Quiet on Set documentary, highlighting sexual abuse that happened at Nickelodeon. Something that's...

    The First Lady Jill Biden hit a new low over the weekend when she outrageously compared the Republican-led state of Florida to Nazi Germany as she desperately tries to campaign for her husband amidst his abysmal approval ratings. While speaking to an audience of Democrats in California who had paid $100,000 a ticket to see her, Jill claimed that $100,000 a ticket.

  • Don't want your kids reading FILTH at school? DOCTOR Jill Biden says that makes you a Nazi (watch)

    Remember when Democrats made a big deal about how Joe and Jill Biden were putting 'decency' back on the ballot? Like Trump had been this villainous, grotesque monster stomping out decency during his presidency because he sent mean tweets. Or said mean things. We'd imagine if Trump had compared Democrats to Nazy Germany because they want abortion up to and including birth they would have said that wasn't DECENT. But it's ok for DOCTOR Jill Biden to compare parents who don't want their kids reading sexually explicit content in elementary schools to Nazy Germany. Watch this: Jill Biden, Ed.D., compares...
  • DeSantis administration slams Axios, 'historian' for comparing parental rights laws to Holocaust

    TALLAHASSEE, Florida (LifeSiteNews) – The office of Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis sharply rebuked media outlet Axios and a Holocaust historian for using the latter’s purported academic credentials to malign a state law against LGBT indoctrination in public schools. In 2022, Florida enacted its Parental Rights in Education law over intense left-wing activist and corporate pressure. The law bans schools from teaching children in kindergarten through third grade about transgenderism and other sexuality-related issues, limits discussions of sexuality for older children to “age appropriate” content and requires parents to be informed of any changes that could affect their child’s physical,...

    Liberals hate, hate, HATE The Parental Rights in Education Act (Florida HB 1557) that was passed by the Florida legislature and enacted by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in 2022. Ever since the law came into force the left has been screaming about it, doing things like rebranding it as the 'Don't Say Gay' bill in the public consciousness and generally being really angry about a bill that has as its primary goal to: prohibit public schools from having 'classroom discussion' or giving 'classroom instruction' about sexual orientation or gender identity from kindergarten through third grade. Seriously, they're really mad about...

    The press in Florida is as biased against Gov. Ron DeSantis as the mainstream media is biased against Donald Trump. As we reported Tuesday in a VIP post, the state reached a settlement on a lawsuit against the Parental Rights in Education law and DeSantis declared it "a major win." The Miami Herald, though, reports that the "Don't Say Gay" law didn't survive a court challenge intact. Say gay, Florida.

    Students and teachers can discuss sexual orientation and gender identity in Florida classrooms, provided it’s not part of instruction, under a settlement reached Monday between Florida education officials and civil rights attorneys who had challenged a state law which critics dubbed “Don’t Say Gay.” The settlement clarifies what is allowed in Florida classrooms following passage two years ago of the law prohibiting instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in early grades. Opponents said the law had created confusion about whether teachers could identity themselves as LGBTQ+ or if they even could have rainbow stickers in classrooms. Other states used...

    A transgender man has said they are being forced to flee Florida because of anti-LGBTQ laws. Brave Rory Richards, from Alachua County, has said state laws mean he is now unable to be prescribed gender-affirming care. Senate Bill 254 was passed by state lawmakers earlier this year and was signed by Governor Ron DeSantis. It stops transgender treatment for anyone under the age of 18, while adults like Rory, 28, have to give consent to treatment and have a physician with them. The law means it can be difficult for transgender patients to get in-person appointments because the care is...

    A south Florida town has become the first in the state to formally declare itself an LGBTQ+ sanctuary city. In a Lake Worth Beach city commission meeting Tuesday, members voted unanimously in favor of the decision, according to a report from NBC affiliate WPTV. City council members and advocates cited concerns from the community – particularly from parents, educators and students – regarding recently enacted legislation aimed at LGBTQ+ people. The expanded Parental Rights in Education law, which took effect in June, further limits the discussion of gender identity and sexual orientation in Florida classrooms. The restrictions originally went up...

    One of the nation's largest teachers unions in America has reportedly offered instruction to teachers on how to insert lessons on gender identity into classroom discussions, according to a right-leaning public policy institute. The Defense of Freedom Institute, founded by two former Trump administration Department of Education officials, released a report earlier this month describing the topics promoted by the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association. Before its Together Educating America's Children (TEACH) conference in July, DFI noted that AFT released a resolution on LGBT issues that touted "age-appropriate and inclusive" bathroom and locker room policies.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Human Rights Campaign declared a state of emergency for LGBTQ+ people in the U.S. on Tuesday and a released “a guidebook for action” summarizing what it calls discriminatory laws in each state, along with “know your rights” information and health and safety resources. Sounding the alarm about the current political environment, the nation’s largest organization devoted to the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Americans said advisories warning against travel to dangerous places aren’t enough to help people already living in so-called hostile states. The guidebook aims to help millions of vulnerable people, “whether...

    Tens of thousands of people flocked to “Gay Days” events at Disney in defiance of the theme park’s legal row with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and his so-called “Don’t Say Gay” legal crackdown. A sea of red shirts — many emblazoned with “Say Gay” or “Don’t say DeSantis” — descended on Orlando from Saturday for the half-week of pool parties, rides and drag bingo to mark the start of Pride Month. It was a clear stand against presidential nominee DeSantis, whose legislation and legal feud with Disney sparked LGBTQ+ rights organizations to issue travel warnings on the Sunshine State. ...

    By now, it’s obvious that the reactionary culture warriors who want to reshape American education are inspiring a serious liberal counter-mobilization in response. Remarkably, this backlash to the backlash is gaining momentum in some of the reddest parts of the country. A raucous school board meeting in Hernando County, Fla., on Tuesday night captured what’s striking about this new phenomenon. The scene featured teachers pointedly declaring that right-wing attacks are driving them to quit, even as parents and students forcefully stood up on their behalf, demanding a halt to the hysteria. “I have never seen such fear from my colleagues...
