It seems like Disney has finally been exposed for what it’s been for a long time: a leftist hub bent on pushing radical propaganda. This revelation came after the state of Florida passed a law banning teachers in third grade or lower from talking about sexuality or gender issues in public schoolrooms. Liberals compelled Disney, which operates a major theme park in the state, to react.
Boy, was that a mistake.
It came to light that Disney’s top executives are little more than radical activists for the LGBT movement. Their goal is to aggressively push homosexual and transgender themes in all their upcoming movies, TV shows, streaming content, and theme parks. It so disgusted Americans that a wave of parents canceled their Disney memberships.
And now, the state of Florida is striking back, possibly revoking Disney’s control over a district.
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Tuesday that Florida lawmakers are considering the termination of Disney’s Reedy Creek Improvement District.
“Governor DeSantis’ position is that all businesses in Florida should be able to compete on a fair playing field, without company-specific carve-outs or special favors from government,” Press Secretary Christina Pushaw told The Daily Wire on Tuesday…

What is Reedy Creek Improvement District? That is the ground in Florida that Disney governs. It is a special jurisdiction that enjoys unique taxing rules. And it’s where they operate Disney World. If Florida revokes Disney’s control over this district, it could mean that the company is subject to the same tax rules and regulations as any other company.
This move by Florida’s governor might effectively amount to his attempt at kicking Disney out of the state for good.
That might sound like the nuclear option to some. Disney World is a major draw to the state. And taking steps to revoke Disney’s considerable footprint in the state could mean a reduction in state revenue. But considering Disney is enjoying special exemptions and status, Florida might not lose out as much as you’d think.
Since Florida is basically an entire beach, it will continue to enjoy significant tourist revenue. All they stand to lose is Disney’s influence, which these days means one less liberal company trying to lobby the state.
Even so, this is an unprecedented move by a governor who refuses to play favorites. Gov. DeSantis is an uncompromising conservative who is putting Florida residents first. It’s hard to imagine anyone else, even Republican governors, willing to go this far to stand up for what they believe in.
This move might bring with it intense blowback from not just Disney, but everyone that wants to stay on Hollywood’s good side.
But nobody said the battle for America’s soul was going to be easy.
