DeSantis batters LGBT wokesters at Disney

In the latest development in Florida's conflict with Walt Disney World, a bill filed Monday during the state's special legislative session would give Gov. Ron DeSantis the ability to appoint a board to run Disney's Reedy Creek Improvement District -- the small, autonomous region that encompasses the company's theme parks outside Orlando.

Those selected by the governor for the oversight board would then go through confirmation by the Florida Senate.

The changes all come after Disney publicly criticized a controversial DeSantis-backed law banning discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in certain K-12 classrooms.


The Parental Rights in Education Law has been dubbed by critics as "Don't Say Gay," while its supporters say it ensures age-inappropriate topics are kept out of class.

Disney, citing concerns of discrimination, has said it "should never have passed and should never have been signed into law." (The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of ABC News.)

With Republicans having control of both chambers of the state legislature, the bill is likely to be considered quickly before being approved and sent to DeSantis to become law.


DeSantis definitely is on a roll, rubbing Disney's nose in its idiotic and uninformed woke opposition to the highly popular Parental Rights in Education law.

I know that Donna has hinted at objecting to increased parental involvement in their children's public school experience but few people share that opinion...particularly in the wake of Covid and what parents learned about what students are being taught these days.

As Greg Gutfeld said on The Five t'other day, if you want tax money spent to promote the LGBT agenda to children, by all means, go for it but, from now on, you'll have to fight for it.

DeSantis is leading that charge.

As pb says, no more foisting.

    Loosely related.

    Jimmy Failla: "No, I havenít watched the Sam Smith performance at the Grammys. If I wanted to see a transgender stripper Iíd go to a liberal kindergarten class."

    Bahahahahahahahahahaha

    I've hinted at no such thing. My contention is that parents are being worked into a lather by DeSantis over an issue he's been blowing out of proportion for his own political gain.


  3. by HatetheSwamp on February 7, 2023 7:40 am

    Donna,

    You've been, IMO, nigh unto viciously critical of school vouchers which increase significantly the influence of parents over their children's education...and weaken the power of teachers' unions.


  4. by Donna on February 7, 2023 7:49 am

    Yes, but not because I'm opposed to parental involvement with their childrens' schools. My parents were PTA members. I've always supported parental involvement in schooling. IMO there hasn't been enough of it.

    I'm opposed to school vouchers because it's a ploy to use taxpayer dollars to financially support private schools. The people who've been advocating for it for decades specifically want taxpayers to subsidize Christian schools.

    This is one I don't get. I say this to the poster formerly known as PowertothePeople.

    The PEOPLE.

    isle also goes where you go.

    Why should the wealthy have the ability to choose by whom and how their children are educated and not people of limited means? Sometimes I think that I know what progressives believe. This one baffles me.

    This seems to me to be an issue on which progressives and libertarians agree.

    Wealthy families have endless advantages across the board over everyone else. Communism is the only thing that would end that for the most part, but very few Americans including myself want communism.

    If taxpayer money went to a madrasa, an Islamic school, HtS would be protesting it. In fact, I'd like to have the government provide school vouchers for a madrasa just to shut up the school choice advocates. Or maybe there is Scientology school that could use some government funding.

    I'm in absolute favor of vouchers. Especially in inner cities, they can create better public schools. Charter schools have continually been on the cutting edge of better education. They're the one's that invented the STEM concept, which is a huge improvement for the vast number of kids.

    "Communism is the only thing that would end that for the most part, but very few Americans including myself want communism."
    That is a common misconception of socialism/ communism/ marxism, etc. People think those not in power have the same abilities as those in power. It's actually worse than here. As a "good" party member I can shop in different stores, go to different restaurants, etc. Those not in power also don't have the same availability to schools. There's a test everyone gets in 8th year in Russia. This is scored and with those scores you get told what is "offered" to you. They take that, crunch the perceived numbers for 5 years after you graduate, and tell you what you're going to be for the rest of your life. Same thing in 1st year china.


  9. by Donna on February 7, 2023 5:24 pm

    I'm not ckear on what you mean by "People think those not in power have the same abilities as those in power."



  10. by oldedude on February 8, 2023 1:34 am
    Fair enough. The wrongful perception is that everyone is "equal" in a socialist/ communist/ marxist society. It's actually quite the opposite. Otherwise there would be no oligarchs in Russia. Or rich in China, or Venezuela, while others starve.

    *FYSA. I used all three of those economic systems because they are all different.

    You are such a liar, Curt. Does the potential that people will live in the liberty the Founders designed scare you? That's the only way I can understand you.

    You're wrong, Bubba.

    pb thinks that the First Amendment is among the greatest intellectual achievements of humanity and that the Free Exercise Clause is the most amazing achievement of the First Amendment.

    No doubt. You are describing isle's White Christian Nationalists whom he numbers at slightly over 80,000,000 in the US...

    ...but not pb.
