Florida Governor Ron DeSantis keeps showing Republicans how to pick fights and win.
That’s bad news for the Left.
And Ron DeSantis just sent one big message that every Democrat should pay attention to.
Democrats leverage their dominance over cultural institutions for maximum political benefit.
Woke corporations are now a key pillar in the Left’s political coalition.
Pro sports leagues and teams are now increasingly vocal on behalf of left-wing political causes.
Major League Baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays tweeted that the team would support billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s bid to ban and confiscate firearms from every American.

Conservatives have grown increasingly frustrated with pro sports teams shoving their leftist political views in fans’ faces.
And this is not the first time Major League Baseball intervened in a political debate on behalf of Democrats.
Last year, Commissioner Rob Manfred yanked the All-Star Game out of Atlanta at the urging of Joe Biden and Stacey Abrams based on the lie that the election integrity bill the state legislature passed was “Jim Crow 2.0.”
But Florida Governor Ron DeSantis created the template for conservatives to fight back against woke corporations.
Governor DeSantis recently signed legislation stripping Disney of its special privileges following Disney declaring it wanted to see the Parental Rights in education bill defeated.
The Tampa Bay Rays were the latest to learn it’s not wise for woke businesses to stick their noses in the political arena.
Governor DeSantis vetoed $35 million in funding for renovations to the Rays spring training compound.
Outkick.com exclusively reported, “DeSantis’s decision is in response to the Rays politicizing recent shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde ahead of a matchup with the Yankees in May . . .”
The report continued “. . . The decision follows DeSantis’ response to Disney earlier this year. In April, DeSantis revoked Disney’s special tax and self-governing privileges after the company injected itself into the debate over a Florida parental rights law, inaccurately dubbed as ‘Don’t Say Gay.’”
Governor DeSantis is sending the message to woke corporations that it’s one thing to side with the Democrats on every major policy fight, but they shouldn’t then expect Republicans to vote for tax breaks and government handouts for them.
