Conservatives Trick People into Signing Against California's Fair Act to Teach LGBT History

The effort to overturn California's FAIR Act, which mandates the teaching of LGBT history and leaders in public schools, is ramping up — and conservatives are turning to duplicitous means to get their way. JoeMyGod obtained video of a gay man in San Diego County who came upon a booth featurning information on Elizabeth Smart, who was abducted as a child. The information booth insinuates that people signing their petition are advocating support for increased penalties against child molesters.

The effort to overturn California's FAIR Act, which mandates the teaching of LGBT history and leaders in public schools, is ramping up — and conservatives are turning to duplicitous means to get their way.

JoeMyGod obtained video of a gay man in San Diego County who came upon a booth featurning information on Elizabeth Smart, who was abducted as a child. The information booth insinuates that people signing their petition are advocating support for increased penalties against child molesters — they're actually signing a petition to get the FAIR Act, or SB48, overturned at the ballot. Watch the video below.

The group behind the booth and the effort to overturn SB48 has a website that claims the legislation goes too far. It prominently features the image of a heterosexual couple with gleeful children on their shoulders.
