DeSantis Slams Disney’s Opposition To Florida Bill

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis criticized Disney for its opposition to the state’s parental rights legislation in a video shared by Fox News on Thursday.

“When you have companies that have made a fortune off being family-friendly and catering to families and young kids, they should understand that parents of young kids do not want this injected into their kid’s kindergarten classroom,” DeSantis said in the video. “They do not want their first-graders to go and be told that they can choose an opposite gender.”

“If that’s the hill they’re [Disney] gonna die on, how do they possibly explain lining their pockets with their relationship from the Communist Party of China?,” he 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.”

Disney publicly opposed a Florida bill Wednesday that bans classroom instruction on sexuality and gender identity before fourth grade, requires transparency and parental consent for healthcare services offered at schools and bars school districts from requiring teachers to keep secrets from parents about decisions affecting children’s mental and physical health.

Disney’s CEO expressed his disappointment with the legislation, which critics call the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, in a call with DeSantis Wednesday after he claimed Disney had been “working behind the scenes directly with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle” to oppose the bill in a virtual shareholder meeting, according to The New York Times.

The bill was passed in the state legislature Tuesday, and it awaits DeSantis’ signature.

“Our policy’s got to be based on the best interests of Florida citizens, not on the musings of woke corporations,” DeSantis said.

Disney did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

  1. Bravo mr.De Santis and the free country FLORIDA;,please spread the FREEDOM virus as best as you can,the World needs you as the tyrants are trying to destroy our unique planet and the sick sex maniacs are spreading their diseased mind with the help of woked corporations and their sycophants

  2. The world be a better place if these “people” would go back in the closet. They are 1% to 3 % of the population and want to control the majority.

  3. Disney is part of the “woke” alliance of elite CEO’s who support the Democrats.They are all complicit in wanting to destroy America. It is important that every American understand the consequences of this Administration.
    Their goal is to destroy America’s middle class and put the so-called “Elites” and Globalists in charge.
    They almost accomplished this with their insane COVID mandates which closed hundreds and hundreds of thousands of small businesses and put hundreds of thousands of Americans out of work. Of course, none of the large multinational corporations were closed (Amazon, Disney, McDonalds, Coke, Walmart, etc., etc.). Big business CEO’s have become part of the “Cabal” because the elites learned from Red China (under Mao) that without instituting “crony capitalism” millions will starve because politicians/elites are incapable of producing anything. The trade off is that the CEO’s get richer because of cheap labor and hence the “open border” policies. Ever wonder why all the big corporations have gone “woke”. Ever wonder why the stock market kept going up for two years during COVID. There’s your answer.
    Now the rest of the middle class will be destroyed by the so-called “sanctions” on Russia. Russia will not be hurt by these because they have an alliance with Red China who is more than capable of buying and using (and re-selling if necessary) anything that Russia cares to sell. Here, on the other hand, we were already hurting because of Biden’s policies causing massive inflation and increasing gas prices (which increase prices on everything). All of course, caused by Biden’s constant money printing and his immediate destruction of our energy independence and shutting down the Keystone pipeline. Because of that, our importing of Russian gas was at an all time high and cutting off Russian imports will only hurt us, not Russia. Biden (and all the Democrats) refuse the obvious solution to return to energy independence and now Biden goes shopping for oil from all our enemies (Venezuela, Iran, OPEC) who will just get richer because now they can extort whatever they want for oil. What Insanity!
    The horrible crisis in Ukraine was largely caused by them for two reasons. Without going into great detail:
    1. The destruction of our Energy independence and Europe’s (and especially Germany’s) decades long “Green New Deal” policies made them totally dependent on Russian oil. This has essentially castrated NATO and no one will talk about it.
    2. Our interference (under Obama) in Ukraine’s free elections and leading the Ukrainians on and pushing them to join NATO; which was a direct threat to Putin. Knowing he controlled Europe’s energy supply and seeing Biden’s fecklessness and disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, it’s no wonder he decided to attack.
    The war could be ended tomorrow if we wanted to help broker a negotiated settlement between Ukraine and Putin to insure that Ukraine will never be part of NATO. And don’t call me a Putin apologist or a Russian asset. He’s a thug and a criminal.
    However, it’s in this administration’s interest to keep this war going. Now, before the mid-terms they can blame Putin for everyone’s suffering (they already are). Then, the longer it goes on, the higher inflation gets and gas prices go up astronomically and the rest of the middle class is crushed. What other possible reason is there that they refuse to restore our energy independence? Eventually, everyone is begging for government assistance (read takeover). Coup complete.
    Wake up America, this is probably our last chance. FJB
