As Twitchy reported earlier, one of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reporters who didn’t get laid off this week tried to give a lesson in using quotes accurately after tweeting about Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law — he said the name recognition of “Don’t Say Gay” (thanks to the media) was a good lesson in marketing and branding, and that’s why they don’t use the law’s actual name.

So the Parental Right in Education law has gone into effect and NBC News reports that “representatives of the Orange County Classroom Teachers Association accused school officials Monday of verbally warning educators not to wear rainbow articles of clothing and to remove pictures of their same-sex spouses from their desks and LGBTQ safe space stickers from classroom doors.” Yes, we heard that story — and we also heard that it was panicked school officials and not the law that was compelling them to do this: “Some of the measures appeared to be far outside what the law actually forbids,” local news reported.

The Connecticut Democrats retweeted the NBC News story with the note that Gov. Ron DeSantis has made it a crime to mention one in 14 Americans.

This tweet from Friday gives a good idea of whether this strategy of lying is working on the Democrat base:

They literally think Florida has made it against the law to say the word “gay.”
