Woke corporations think they can bully Republicans into accepting the liberal social agenda.
But CEOs and their Democrat Party allies got some bad news.
And that’s because Disney picked a fight with Ron DeSantis but made this gigantic blunder.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill into law.
This legislation banned teachers from brainwashing children in kindergarten through third grade with propaganda about being transgender or the homosexual agenda.
Before DeSantis signed this bill into law, Disney tried to pull the typical woke corporation power play and loudly announced its opposition to the bill.
Past Republican Governors – like Mike Pence when he was Governor of Indiana – folded in the face of corporate pressure and undid legislation to push back against the radical gender identity push on the Left.
Instead, Ron DeSantis fought back.
DeSantis and his spokeswoman Christina Pushaw slammed Disney for trying to sexualize young children while lining their pockets with blood money from Communist China.
Pushaw ripped Disney, pointing out that the woke corporation “failed to condemn the Chinese Communist Party’s human rights violations.”
Pushaw continued on noting that Disney benefited from the Communist Chinese Party’s genocide against the Uyghur Muslims.
“Disney has actively endorsed the CCP’s mistreatment of ethnic and religious minorities,” Pushaw added. “Disney’s live-action film Mulan (2020) was filmed in Xinjiang, with Uyghur internment camps edited out of the background. Disney actually thanked Xinjiang CCP officials (the same communists forcing Uyghurs into gulags) in the credits of the movie.”
At a press conference, DeSantis defended the bill and called out Disney CEO Bob Chapek after Chapek announced he would call DeSantis to register Disney’s opposition to the bill.
“You have companies, like a Disney, that are going to say and criticize parents rights – they’re going to criticize the fact that we don’t want transgenderism in kindergarten and first grade classrooms, and that’s the hill they’re going to die on,” DeSantis explained. “Then how do they possibly explain lining their pockets with their relationship from the Communist Party of China?”
“Because that’s what they do, and they make a fortune and they don’t say a word about the really brutal practices that you see over there at the hands of the CCP,” DeSantis concluded.
It is a new day in the Republican Party.
Led by conservatives like Ron DeSantis, Republicans no longer roll over and die at the first sign of the Left utilizing their new found allies in woke corporations to pressure Republicans to sell out in the culture wars.
