Florida Governor Ron DeSantis proved once again why he is a rising star in the Republican Party.
Governor DeSantis is not afraid of a fight.
And Ron DeSantis just destroyed woke corporations with a reality check about Communist China.
Leftists tried to rally Disney CEO Bob Chapek to kill legislation in Florida preventing teachers from indoctrinating children in kindergarten through third grade on transgenderism and other aspects of the radical homosexual agenda.
Chapek spoke out against the bill after many in the media lied about the legislation, calling it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
But Ron DeSantis refused to back down from woke corporations like Disney trying to blackmail Florida into dropping this parental rights bill.
Instead, DeSantis slammed Disney as hypocrites for claiming to be family-friendly while at the same time supporting teaching five-year-olds about transgenderism.
“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 stated.
DeSantis blasted Disney for opposing this bill while lining their pockets with money from Communist China.
“You have companies, like at Disney, that are going to say and criticize parents’ rights, they’re going to criticize the fact that we don’t want transgenderism in kindergarten in first grade classrooms,” DeSantis added. “If that’s the hill they’re going to die on, then how do they possibly explain lining their pockets with their relationship with the Communist Party of China? 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.”
In fact, at the end of the 2020 Disney film Mulan, Disney thanked Communist China for allowing them to film in the Xinjiang province where the Communist Chinese run concentration camps housing 1.5 million Uyghur Muslims.
DeSantis concluded his remarks by saying Florida will always act in the best interest of parents, and that he would never cave in to pressure from woke corporations.
“And so in Florida, our policies have to be based on the best interest of Florida citizens, not on the musing of woke corporations,” Governor DeSantis concluded.
