Disney went full woke, now the company is paying the price.
But Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will not let Disney get away with it.
And Ron DeSantis hammered Disney for this stunning act of hypocrisy.
Disney’s latest promotion of wokeism came in the form of the company promoting homosexual themed clothing for iconic brands it owns such as Marvel and Star Wars that are known for being kid and family friendly.
“The rainbow themed items are featured in the Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars Pride Collection merchandise as well, which are geared toward children and families. According to Disney, the company is donating all profits from the Disney Pride Collection sales ‘to organizations that support LGBTQIA+ youth and families.’ That will extend through June 30, 2022 and includes the funding of programs that supposedly build ‘empathy’ through ‘educational workshops in schools featuring personal, lived-experience stories from LGBTQ+ and ally role models,’” Breitbart reported.
But Disney’s homosexual-themed clothing is also made in Communist China, where the government is committing genocide against Uyghur Muslims.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ office slammed Disney for the hypocrisy for promoting wokeism in America while staying silent on the abuses of Communist China in order to pocket money.
“It’s hypocritical, but it’s not surprising, that a woke company like Disney would threaten the rights of parents in Florida but would happily do business with the Chinese Communist Party – one of the world’s worst human rights abusers,” a DeSantis spokesman declared.
Disney’s coziness with Communist China came under intense scrutiny after Disney lobbied to kill the Parental Rights in Education Bill, which prevented teachers from grooming children into transgenderism through sexualized lesson plans.
Governor DeSantis slammed Disney for calling out American laws while tolerating Communist China’s abuses for financial reasons.
“And I also think that 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,” Governor DeSantis stated.
“If that’s the hill they’re going to die on, then how do they possibly explain lining their pockets with their relationship with the Communist Party of China?” DeSantis added. “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.”
