Looks like Disney has unwisely decided to double down against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, which isn’t exactly the most advisable idea in the world when it’s pretty clear that the Sunshine State leader is clearly a man of action.
Alas, Disney just can’t get over the fact that DeSantis is interested in protecting parental rights, rather than questionable transgender advocates’ “rights,” which is evident in the raging statement the corporation issued in March 2022.
“Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law,” Disney raged, pompously adding that they were explicitly “dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety” of individuals who identify as LGBTQ+.
Unsurprisingly, DeSantis clapped back by dissolving the woke corporation’s so-called self-governing status.
However, when DeSantis signed legislation that officially ended Disney’s self-governing status in February, the company retorted through sneaking in 30-year development agreements, or “restrictive covenants,” designed to give Disney the maximum developmental power over the 27,000 acres owned in Central Florida owned by the theme park.
While Disney crowed about its temporary victory against DeSantis, the Florida governor made it abundantly clear that such gloating would be rather short-lived, which was evident from the remarks issued by DeSantis spokeswoman Taryn Fenske.
“These agreements may have significant legal infirmities that would render the contracts void as a matter of law. The Executive Office of the Governor is aware of Disney’s last-ditch efforts to execute contracts just before ratifying the new law that transfers rights and authorities from the former Reedy Creek Improvement District to Disney,” Fenske announced crisply.
Disney can try all the backhanded antics it wants, but something suggests DeSantis will have the last laugh.
“An initial review suggests these agreements may have significant legal infirmities that would render the contracts void as a matter of law. We are pleased the new Governor-appointed board retained multiple financial and legal firms to conduct audits and investigate Disney’s past behavior,” Fenske continued.
One can only imagine what “past behavior” Disney may find itself ensnared within, especially considering its obviously eager encouragement of rather deviant teacher behavior.
Which tends to entail deviating from standard maths and writing and into the 50+ gender permutations Dems cook up on the side.
DeSantis himself weighed in on the clear unpopularity of the Disney decision with a recent update, as reportedby Breitbart.
“This was something that was litigated. This is something that the voters understood. And not only did the legislature come back in ways that vindicated our position; we won big and you know, we did better in Central Florida [than] Republicans [have] done in a long time, including areas that have a lot of employees of Disney, like Osceola County. So the reality is, clearly that’s [the] direction we were going to,” DeSantis remarked coolly.
Clearly, even blue state tax refugees grudgingly admit DeSantis has an effective point, given how many New Yorkers and even Californians continue fleeing to Florida.
Which, in and of itself, is direct evidence of endless Democrat failure.
