LONE STAR NEXT: Texas Lt. Gov. Following Florida, Parental Rights in Education 'Top Priority'

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.05.22

Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick is keen to follow in Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ footsteps; Patrick says a Texas version of the recently-passed Parental Rights in Education bill is a “top priority.”

“While Texas’ next legislative session doesn’t start until January, the issue will be addressed in Education Committee hearings before then, Patrick said in a campaign email,” The Texas Tribune reports.

“I will make this law a top priority in the next session,” he said in his weekly email.

“At first, I was angry at their over-the-top radical resistance to a Florida law that simply says schools cannot sexualize children in elementary school. I will make this law a top priority in the next session. This issue will be addressed in our interim Education Committee hearings under Parental Rights. But now private videos from Disney officials have emerged where they purposely plan to indoctrinate my grandkids and your children and grandchildren on the issue of sexuality.”

“Just this week they also announced they will no longer address anyone with the greeting ‘boys and girls’ and ‘ladies and gentlemen’ at their parks. This crazy ‘woke’ radical agenda is pushed by a few, but rejected by almost everyone in America, across all political spectrums,” Patrick continues.

“Parents trusted the Disney brand, all while Disney was undermining parents who believed Disney was a quality and good company.”

DeSantis is currently at war with Disney over his bill, which has incorrectly been labeled by the left as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. DeSantis recently commented on revoking some of Disney’s special privileges.

“Someone said Disney has all these special perks,” DeSantis said. “Should you retaliate against them for them coming out and demagoguing this bill? I don’t believe you ‘retaliate,’ but I think what I would say is, as a matter of first principle, I don’t support special privileges in law just because a company is powerful, and they’ve been able to wield a lot of power.”
