DeSantis wins, yet again!
Democrats may want to actually start preparing in advance for this one, as he just won’t give up.
Especially when it comes to matters that are a tad more serious than policy disputes.
“Look, there’s policy disputes, and that’s fine, but when you’re trying to impose a woke ideology on our state, we view that as a significant threat,” DeSantis declared.
What would be “a significant threat” includes a direct attack on elementary school’s education, specifically the LGBTQ “cause” that children apparently must learn about.
As if gender is the most important skill they will learn in life.
Which is precisely why DeSantis recently supported the passage of a bill that bans teachers from talking about LGBTQ causes to 5-year-olds.
Sad that a bill actually has to be passed.
Republican Florida State Rep. Joe Harding warned about how seriously awry public education has gone awry in this regard, especially in terms of sexuality lectures to kindergarteners.
“One, it defines that there are certain instructions related to gender and sexual orientation that are just not appropriate at certain ages, and we define that as kindergarten through third grade. A school having curriculum that teaches gender and sexual orientation and what that means and getting into the weeds on that is just not age appropriate,” Harding remarked.
Disney responded furiously to DeSantis, and one can only imagine why the company is so intent in its opposition to a law that pertains to K-3 education.
“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have passed and should never have been signed into law,” Disney declared, “our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that.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.”
Sure, Disney, sure.
“Stand up” for those “rights” outside of the kindergarten classroom, please.
Not only did DeSantis blow off Disney’s whining, but he’s now gone after their tax-exempt status, showing woke corporations just how badly their woke-ism will cost them.
“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 remarked in response to queries about stripping Disney’s special tax status.
And, sure enough, the Florida Senate just voted in favor of doing exactly that.
“#BREAKING The Florida Senate passed the bill that would dismantle the Reedy Creek Improvement District, which gives Disney self-governing powers. It passed 23-16 and now moves to the Florida House,” journalist Lydia Nusbaum said excitedly.
DeSantis Press Secretary Christina Pushaw, cheered the news.
“It was unfortunate that Disney decided to wade into a political debate and attempt to overturn a common-sense law, enacted by a duly elected legislature and signed by a duly elected governor, with the support of the vast majority of Floridians,” Pushaw remarked, “In fact, it was Disney that ‘retaliated’ by publicly vowing to ‘repeal’ or have the law ‘struck down.’”
Too bad Disney’s retaliation epically backfired on them. To the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.
And yet another Kamala associate had a public appearance backfire as well, specifically with regards to Disney.
Symone Sanders, a former spokesperson for Kamala Harris, as well as a former aide on the Bernie Sanders campaign, clearly got the memo a tad late, as evidenced during a recent disastrous appearance on MSNBC.
“Oh, my money is on the Disney lobbyists, honey. My money is on the Disney lobbyists. Do you think those state legislatures down in Florida are going to bend bid to the will of the governor?” Sanders sneered.
“By the way, the Florida legislature, the state senate just passed this bill to strip Disney of its special access,” MSNBC host Chuck Todd remarked drolly.
That was a nice touch.
Hilariously, crime-ridden, authoritarian California is as out of touch as ever, with Governor Gavin Newsom suggesting Disney return to its home bae.
“Disney, the door is open to bring those jobs back to California – the state that actually represents the values of your workers,” Newsom brayed.
Well, to be fair, the present state of California, buried in crime and insanity, is representative of the leftist state’s “values.”
