Ron Perlman made a video attacking Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for signing HB 1557. The bill, infamously dubbed the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill by critics who apparently cannot read the actual text of the bill, seeks to prevent classroom discussions introduced by teachers or third parties about gender identity or sexual orientation from kindergarten through third grade.
Perlman showed almost immediately that he had only read left-wing article titles for the sources of his information and neglected to read the actual bill. Perlman embarked on a rather patronizing attack on DeSantis despite his complete lack of knowledge regarding the bill.
The tweet caption reads, “Dear Governor DeSantis …”
“Good morning, Governor DeSantis, Ron here.” He continues, “Um, don’t say gay? Don’t say… as the first two words of a sentence spoken by a political leader of a state in the United States of America? Don’t say gay? Don’t f***ing say gay you f***ing Nazi pig? Say. First Amendment. Read about it. Then run for office. You piece of s***.”

The reply section was filled with individuals instructing Perlman to actually read the bill and jokes highlighting Perlman’s self-induced humiliation.

This is what happens when you watch the news instead of reading the documents yourself. Take this down man, you were tricked.

Dear Mr. Perlman, Two comments: 1) please read the bill and hopefully this will assuage your concerns; 2) please reacquaint yourself with the notion of civility. You can make your points without the curse words. Cheers. [I'll retweet as well.]

Even the DailyWire’s Ben Shapiro jumped in on the opportunity, saying, “you are literally too stupid to insult.”

Less than a week before, Perlman attempted to go after Ted Cruz for his questioning of Ketanji Brown Jackson. Perlman tells Ted in a Twitter video, “listen, I know how tempting it is to appeal to the real lowest form of humanity here in the United States, the bottom feeders, people who pride themselves on hatred and uneducation and inability to read and inability to understand the difference between true patriotism and the bulls*** you’re selling.”
Perlman continues, “I know how tempting it is to play to those people, because at least you have a base, but Jesus Christ Ted, for somebody with a really, really small d***, you get to be a bigger prick every f***ing day. Go f*** yourself.”

Perlman is awfully bold accusing Ted’s base of the inability to read when Perlman could not even read a seven-page bill before taking to Twitter. Perhaps, Perlman should take lessons in self-awareness before attempting to insult anyone, much less an entire voting base.
While Perlman is at it, he should try to lay off the ad hominem attacks and make a cohesive argument. Unfortunately, that is probably too much to ask of the 71-year-old TV star.
