The head of the Walt Disney Company says he supports teaching kindergarten students about transgenderism and gay sex.
Bob Chapek announced his opposition to Florida’s falsely-named “Don’t Say Gay” bill. In reality the legislation would ban schools from teaching sexuality to children in kindergarten through third grade.
Mr. Chapek also pledged to donate $5 million to radical LGBT organizations.
In response, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis threw down the hammer – blasting what he called woke corporations like Walt Disney.
“In Florida, our policies got to be based on the best interest of Florida citizens, not on the musing of woke corporations,” DeSantis told Fox News.
“If that’s the hill they’re going to die on, then how do they possibly explain lining their pockets with their relationship from 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,” DeSantis added.
The governor says Walt Disney made a fortune off being family-friendly and catering to families and young kids.
But Disney is not family friendly – and they haven’t been for a very long time. They have long carried water for radical LGBT activists – They have bullied and intimidated government leaders for decades – but not Ron DeSantis. The Florida governor actually stood up to the bullies wearing mouse ears. The question is whether moms and dads will do the same.
