The woke executives at Walt Disney doubled down on their attacks against Ron DeSantis after he signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill into law on Monday.
But this time they crossed a line.
And Ron DeSantis just fired a warning shot at Walt Disney that caused all hell to break loose.
On Monday, despite massive pressure from the Left, Ron DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill into law.
The bill, falsely named the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by Democrats and the corporate-controlled media, simply prohibits the teaching of gender and sexuality to children in kindergarten through third grade.
The law doesn’t even mention the word “gay” or the word “homosexual.”
But that didn’t stop everyone from the Fake News Media to the Biden administration from viciously attacking Ron DeSantis in an effort to pressure him into dropping his support.
The “woke” CEO of Walt Disney, which happens to be the largest employer in the state of Florida, even publicly ripped DeSantis and tried to use their power to force him to veto the bill.
Of course, Ron DeSantis refused to heed to the pressure and signed the bill into law on Monday.
But that didn’t stop Walt Disney executives from continuing to attack Ron DeSantis.
After DeSantis signed the bill, Walt Disney released a statement slamming the legislation.
“Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law. Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that. We are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country.”
But Ron DeSantis has had enough.
On Tuesday, during a press conference, DeSantis said the company “crossed the line” and threatened to repeal the 1967 Reedy Creek Improvement Act, which allows Disney to act as its own government on property they manage.
“What I would say as a matter of first principle is I don’t support special privileges in law just because a company is powerful and they’ve been able to wield a lot of power,” DeSantis began.
“I think what has happened is there’s a lot of these special privileges that are not justifiable, but because Disney had held so much sway, they were able to sustain a lot of special treatment over the years,” DeSantis continued.
DeSantis then dropped the hammer on Disney, saying that after their recent push against parental rights, they likely lost most of their support in the legislature.
“I would say any special privileges that are in law I would like to get rid of generally,” DeSantis continued, adding that, “I think in this particular case with Disney, I just don’t think you have very many people in the legislature anymore who are going to be able to defend a lot of what has been done over many years to really have them almost govern themselves in some of these things. That was probably never appropriate to start, but is certainly not appropriate now at this point.”
Despite pressure from the radical Left, Ron DeSantis is following through on his pledge to make 2022 the “Year of the Parent” in Florida.
