HUGE! Florida Looks to Punish Disney as Woke Company Continues Push for Grooming Children
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that lawmakers in Florida are considering stripping away special privileges which allow Disney to act as its own government.
The governor said that when lawmakers meet in special session this week to redraw the state’s congressional maps, their agenda will be expanded to consider repealing all multiple special districts enacted before 1968, including the Reedy Creek Improvement District where Walt Disney World is located.
“Governor DeSantis’ position is that all businesses in Florida should be able to compete on a fair playing field, without company-specific carve-outs or special favors from government,” Press Secretary Christina Pushaw said.
The move is intended to serve as a reminder to Disney that the company is a “guest” in Florida according to state Rep. Randy Fine.
Rep. Fine said that DeSantis’s expansion of the special session allows him to file HB3C, eliminating “a 50 yr-old special statute that makes Disney to exempt from laws faced by regular Floridians.”
“The Florida legislature is meeting this week to consider the congressional reapportionment plan for Florida for the next 10 years, and that is what they have been called upon to do,” DeSantis said, “but I am announcing today that we are expanding the call of what they are going to be considering this week.”
“And so yes, they will be considering the congressional map, but they also will be considering termination of all special districts that were enacted in Florida prior to 1968, and that includes the Reedy Creek Improvement District,” he said.
The decision comes in response to Disney’s politically motivated pushback against Florida’s “Parental Rights In Education” law which bans teachers from instructing students in pre-K through third grade about gender identity and sexual orientation.
The law was falsely branded by the mainstream media and other opponents of the legislation as the “Don’t Say Gay” law – despite the fact that it makes no mention of the word “gay.”
The law states, “classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”
Students in kindergarten are typically five years old, while third graders generally are eight or nine years old.
Disney has repeatedly condemned the legislation and even ramped up efforts to counteract it by shoving pro-gay propaganda down children’s throats via their various forms of content.
They’ve also vowed to try to oust Governor Ron DeSantis who faces reelection this November.
Manhattan Institute senior fellow Chris Rufo released several videos purportedly from a recent “all-hands” Zoom staff meeting in which a Disney executive producer discussed implementing her “not-at-all secret gay agenda” in a children’s show.
Conservative parents are fed up with this woke push by Disney and the company has been suffering as a result.
Parents are cancelling trips to Disney and cutting the cord on their Disney+ subscriptions so as not to subject their children to the left-wing company’s grooming attempts.
“Disney has been a part of our family,” one mother said. “This is a hard transition. It’s like giving up one of your favorite things, like giving up coffee. We enjoyed it, but we have to look at the big picture here.”
