January 1, DeSantis Triumphs Over Disney in Tax District Lawsuit



Florida Governor Ron DeSantis emerged victorious on Wednesday when a federal judge threw out Disney’s lawsuit alleging retaliation by the governor. The lawsuit was filed after DeSantis dismantled a special Disney-controlled tax district, which allowed the company to govern itself. Disney claimed that the governor’s actions were in response to their public criticism of his Florida Parental Rights in Education Act, a law designed to empower parents in raising their children and protect them from exposure to dangerous leftist gender ideologies in school.

Politico described the development as Disney losing “a major battle” against DeSantis. U.S. District Judge Allen Winsor ruled that Disney lacked standing and jurisdiction in their lawsuit. Disney expressed its discontent with the ruling, stating that it “would set a dangerous precedent and give license to states to weaponize their official powers to punish the expression of political viewpoints they disagree with.” The company announced its intention to appeal the ruling.

A spokesperson for DeSantis, Press Secretary Jeremy Redfern, said the ruling was proof that the “Corporate Kingdom” was over in Orlando, and Republicans celebrated the outcome. “As stated by Governor DeSantis when he signed HB 9-B, the Corporate Kingdom is over,” Redfern declared. “The days of Disney controlling its own government and being placed above the law are long gone. The federal court’s decision made it clear that Governor DeSantis was correct: Disney is still just one of many corporations in the state, and they do not have a right to their own special government. In short – as long predicted, case dismissed.”

Why It Matters (op-ed)

Governor DeSantis’s victory against Disney showcases the power of conservative leadership in standing up to corporate giants who attempt to push their leftist agenda. This case demonstrates the importance of fighting for parental rights and combating indoctrination in our schools.

Disney’s loss is a win for the American people, as it sends a strong message that no corporation is above the law, regardless of their influence. The ruling solidifies the notion that states have the authority to protect their citizens from the expression of harmful political ideologies.

    Go get’em Florida! I’d move to Florida except for the weather, hurricanes, rain and humidity. Currently I live where the best weather on the planet is found. Balboa CA right on the beach. The government in this state is oppressive and downright mean to conservatives. I own my own home and have almost no bills. So, for the foreseeable future I can still afford to live here. I am 83 years old and have lived here since I was one year old. I have seen the entire progression from a very right wing state (Remember, Reagan was from here!) to the totally communist style government we now have.

    All Disney would have to do is make the critical turn to have things restored but they are so determined to keep pushing their twisted agenda on kids that they are doing nothing more than “eating their own”.

    Your header graphic picture of the cartwheel is of Disney’s California Adventure park in obviously California and not anything from Florida. Might want to change the picture.
