The following can be considered a public service announcement brought to you by Florida Rep. Charles Van Zant (do you really need to for me to tell you the party he's affiliated with?)

In a breaking development, it turns out that Common Core and its supporters are "promoting as hard as they can any youth that is interested in the LGBT agenda".

Yes, my fellow Floridians, that is just the kind of intellectual debate that is typical from our teabagging GOP lawmakers in Tallahassee. So threatcon normal.

But then he went on to say something crazy:  

These people, that will now receive $220 million from the state of Florida unless this is stopped, will promote double-mindedness in state education and attract every one of your children to become as homosexual as they possibly can. I'm sorry to report that to you."
See for yourself:

You might be asking yourself, how do you get as homosexual as you can?  Is there some kind of gay meter?  

Yes there is.  You can be low-gay, elevated-level gay, and, if you work hard enough, severe gay.  (Anything over that is Marcus Bachmann territory).

You might also be asking yourself, does this mean current GOP frontrunner for prez, one Mr. Jeb Bush, is promoting children to become as gay as possible?  

Yes he is.  He is so pro-Common Core/gay agenda he even defended it at an ALEC meeting!

Stay away from Jeb Bush at ALL COSTS!

This has been a public service announcement brought to you by the Florida GOP:  Bigoted rednecks with legislative power can make a difference.

The more you know.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
