Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis warned Disney to keep their liberal activism out of schools, saying, “It’s not going to work out well for you.”
Disney’s Special Troubles
In April, Disney took to the public eye crying out their allegiance towards encouraging “LGBTQ+ talk” among extremely young children in school. However, Governor DeSantis stopped them in their tracks.
Because of Disney’s activism and support against DeSantis’ bill, and supporting what some experts call “sexual grooming in the classroom,” they puffed out their chests and fought DeSantis’ sex education bill.
The bill has been called by liberals the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. According to experts, the word gay is not included in the bill.
To Disney’s surprise, the show of their corporate liberal muscle resulted in what no one saw coming, a decision from the Governor to cancel Disney’s coveted special status of Reedy Creek. Reedy Creek is located in Orlando, Florida, and was purchased by Walt Disney in the early 1960s. In 1967, the year after Walt Disney passed away, Florida legislation allowed Disney to self-govern, skipping the bureaucracy of big business.
Self-government status comes with a lot of perks.
Governor DeSantis Sex Education Bill
In an interview with Dave Rubin, Republican Governor DeSantis said “I thought it was a mistake for Disney to get involved and I told them, ‘You shouldn’t get involved it’s not going to work out well for you.”
According to the interview with Rubin, DeSantis pointed out that Disney can freely take a position on the bill, but not “force all of us to subsidize their activism,” which he feels was what they were doing.
Disney employees staged a walkout against the sex education bill, a bill that reinforces parents’ rights to make decisions on the upbringing of their children. The bill prohibits classroom instruction on sexual orientation or gender from kindergarten through 3rd grade.
DeSantis recently signed a bill to enhance school security and support mental health.
Critics Of The Bill
Critics of the sex education bill that protect kindergarteners through 3rd graders, say his decision not to allow teachers to openly discuss sex and gender will marginalize the LGBTQ+ students, teachers, and families of same-sex households.
If the special privileges for Reedy Creek are dissolved, it will begin June 1, 2023.
The sex education bill is set to begin on July 1, 2022.
