The Walt Disney Company has been dealt a swift and satisfactory blow, as Florida lawmakers are moving closer to taking back the special privileges that Disney has enjoyed since the 1960s.
The stripping of these special privileges from the media behemoth, came after Disney openly criticized the “Parental Rights in Education” bill, which was designed to stop children in kindergarten through 3rd grade, from being taught about gay and transgender issues at school.
The company was caught out intentionally injecting a gay agenda into their productions and the reaction from the left, who labeled the bill the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, when it says nothing of the sort in the legislation – exposed one thing – there are many, many people, including media giants like the Walt Disney Company, who are angry they will no longer be able to instruct small children about sex.
Not only that, Disney also brought to light the number of pedophiles working inside their resorts. Over 25 staff members, have been caught participating in a child pornography ring.
Other Disney staff members have been caught onboard the Disney CruiseLine, molesting and in some cases, raping children – even while still docked in Florida.
People have simply had enough. Parents have had enough.
If it is not bad enough that DIsney has been inserting subliminal messaging and pornography into their movies for decades, they now want to be in your home, dictating how you should raise your child.
The Florida state Senate, voted to dissolve the Reedy Creek Improvement District, which has been around since 1967. This was a deal made between the Walt DIsney Company and the state of Florida. Which gave Disney a huge amount of control over what happens at the theme park and its huge amount of land.
Republican Governor, Ron DeSantis praised the effort by the GOP and in a fundraising email to donors, he said, “I was elected to put the people of Florida first, and I will not allow a woke corporation based in California to run our state.”
Not everyone is happy about the pushback against Disney, however, as local officials have already started to whine about the amount of money, they will no longer be receiving from Disney. The media giant pays for road maintenance, building inspections, 911 emergency calls and sewage treatment at the theme park, which is in two different counties, covering around 40 square miles (about the area of Manhattan).
“Orange County is going to be stuck with $164 million or more per year in expenses with no revenue,” Orange County tax collector Scott Randolph said. “So, they are going to have to raise property taxes. This is a huge tax increase on the citizens of Orange County that they will have to pay every single year.”
The bill is set to head to the state House for a final vote and if it is passed, Reedy Creek will begin to be undone around June 2023.
“This leaves the sword of Damocles over Disney’s head for 13 months. It shuts them up,” Florida state Sen. Jeff Brandes (R) said. “Nobody actually thinks this is going to happen. The cost to the state would be astronomical, potentially billions of dollars.”
It is comments like that that irk people so much. Money over the safety and well-being of children. That sort of thinking has been around too long and that is why we are in the mess we are all in now.
