Ron DeSantis is a rock star in the Republican Party.
Many on the Left view him as a potential threat to Joe Biden in 2024.
And the Lieutenant Governor of Texas just made one major announcement that shows why Democrats fear Ron DeSantis.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently created a national stir on the Left when he signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill into law.
The bill simply prohibits teaching the transgender ideology and homosexual agenda to children in kindergarten through third grade.
But after Democrats misnamed it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, the radical Left launched a full-blown smear campaign against Ron DeSantis, with Disney CEO Bob Chapek even attempting to strongarm the Governor into vetoing the “hateful” legislation.
However, Disney went further than just voicing their opposition to the legislation.
After DeSantis signed the bill into law, Disney pledged to donate millions of dollars to the radical homosexual lobby and to make half of the characters in their new programming either homosexuals or racial minorities.
Disney executives also promised to fight similar laws around the country as part of the company’s new commitment to supporting radical LGBTQ activism.

But Disney is facing a massive backlash from parents across the country who are concerned with the company promoting the Left’s radical gender ideology to children.
And Ron DeSantis is no longer standing alone against Disney and the woke Left.
At least six other states have reportedly been considering similar legislation to Florida’s, including Georgia, Tennessee, Indiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Louisiana.
But Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick just slammed Disney for going “woke” and also vowed to make passing a law similar to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill a “top priority” in the upcoming legislative session.
“Texans are fed up with corporations that don’t share our values trying to dictate public policy,” Patrick wrote in an email.
He then promised to introduce a similar bill at the first opportunity.
“At first, I was angry at their over-the-top radical resistance,” Patrick wrote. “I will make this law a top priority in the next session. This issue will be addressed in our interim Education Committee hearings under Parental Rights.”
In the meantime, Patrick is urging parents to boycott Disney and stop patronizing the company.
“Until they change their corporate philosophy, stop spending money with them,” Patrick said. “Cut off the Disney Channel. Cancel your park trip or your cruise if one is planned. If you own Disney stock, sell it. Although I did not own many shares of individual Disney stock, I sold them today.”
Texas will become the seventh state to push legislation similar to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill.
Ron DeSantis promised to make 2022 the “Year of the Parent.”
After he boldly stood up against the “woke” Left and won, other Republicans are following his lead and taking on the radicals in their own states.
And this is why the Democrats are terrified of Ron DeSantis.
