FAIRFAX COUNTY, Virginia (LifeSiteNews) — Two weeks ago, I saw a man who seemed under the influence knocking on every home in our Fairfax County neighborhood. My mother and I rushed inside to avoid him and locked the door. I decided to call the police. After the emergency dispatcher ascertained my name and address and what was occurring, she asked a series of questions about my likelihood of having COVID. Was I COVID positive? Do I have any COVID-like symptoms? Am I awaiting the results of a COVID test?

As she was asking me these questions, the man was aggressively attempting to turn the handle of our locked door. I became angry with the dispatcher, but the dispatcher insisted she had to ask me the questions. Thankfully the man left our doorstep. Two agreeable policemen who came to the scene told me that they had questioned the man. He had lied to them about having done work for our neighbors in the past. The policemen suspected the man was trying to extort money from homeowners.

I am not sure if the dispatcher sent the police units to my house as she was asking the COVID questions, or if her interrogation caused a delay. But the 30 seconds or so it takes for the questions to be asked and answered could make the difference in a life-or-death situation.

Also, how would the police response differ if they knew a victim had COVID? If there were a scrum, would they try to maintain social distancing as they separated people? Would they make sure the victim is wearing a mask before intervening?

SIGN, THANK and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is being attacked by Disney for signing a new law which prohibits sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade*Anyone - no matter where you reside - can sign this petition!

For protecting the innocence of his state's youngest schoolchildren and standing up to the bullies in the LGBT lobby, Governor Ron DeSantis has predictably been on the receiving end of sustained attacks from LGBT activists and their numerous allies in the leftist mainstream media.

And now, the Disney Corporation - one of Florida's biggest employers - has decided to interfere in politics and pick a fight with DeSantis over the new law.

BUT, Florida parents, and parents across the country, are overjoyed that a governor is finally taking seriously their concerns about the early sexualization of our nation's children!

SIGN, THANK, and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis with this petition which will be delivered to Governor DeSantis' office and CC'ed to Disney, and which tells the Governor that we thank him for, and will stand with him in, protecting our schoolchildren from LGBT indoctrination.

This common sense legislation, known as the Parental Rights in Education Act, prohibits instruction pertaining to sexual orientation, "gender identity" and transgenderism in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade classrooms across the state of Florida.

And, the new law also puts stronger limits on such discussions for older children, frustrating a primary tenet of the radical left's plan to encroach upon impressionable young minds.

Media talking heads and political opponents, ranging from radical LGBT activist groups to morally corrupt corporations like Disney, dubbed HB 1557 the "Don't Say Gay" Bill.

But, the truth is that such sensitive, personal subjects are not the job of schools to cover, but the job of parents alone, who, under the bill, would be allowed to take legal action against school districts that violate its provisions.

By their hateful reaction to the bill (now law) and to Governor DeSantis, one can only assume that Disney actually despises parents and their role as the primary educator of their children, especially in, but not limited to, areas of sexual conduct and morals.

Indeed, the extreme volume of manufactured outrage on this particular piece of legislation reveals the following significant nugget of information: one of the seminal means the LGBT "community" counts on to continue attracting people into their ranks, or as so-called "allies," is by brainwashing little, unsuspecting children without their, or their parents', consent.

We know it, and they know it. And, finally, someone is doing something about it.

SIGN, THANK and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is being attacked by Disney for signing a new law which prohibits sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade.

Children's innocence is worth it and Disney, and its chairman Bob Chapek, should be ashamed of themselves for threatening to interfere in state politics because they are offended that children's minds will no longer be violated.

We must encourage people like Governor DeSantis and the Florida Legislature not to be blackmailed and not to be afraid...

If Disney wants to escalate things, then conservative and Christian parents might be finally persuaded not to visit Disneyland and Disney World, nor buy Disney products, nor watch Disney films.

Conservatives and Christians, and right-thinking people from all walks of life, need to start playing hardball with the likes of Disney.

We saw what happens when parents show their power in Virginia last year, so any further action on this matter by Florida Democrats and their allies in Disney’s executive leadership will be at their own peril.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to THANK and STAND WITH Governor Ron DeSantis for protecting children from LGBT propaganda, and from Disney's bullying, slurs and legal threats.

Thank you!

I asked my local elected official, Fairfax County Supervisor James Walkinshaw, and the Fairfax County Department of Public Safety Communications what authority oversees the response of emergency dispatchers in Fairfax County. They both confirmed that the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department (FCFRD) Medical Director was responsible for mandating the COVID questions. The medical director, whose name does not appear on the county website, reports to the head of the FCFRD, Fire Chief John Butler.

Walkinshaw confirmed that the Department of Pubic Safety Communications, the entity “responsible for fielding 9-1-1 calls” in Fairfax County, was planning to meet with the medical director “to discuss whether those questions should still be asked.”

Distracting rattled people by forcing them to answer superfluous questions in highly tense situations is not a recipe for common-sense public safety. Fairfax County should stop.
