DeSantis Blasts Disney’s “Stupid Activism”

1945: Potsdam Conference – Harry Truman, Joseph Stalin, and Winston Churchill hold 1st post-World War II meeting.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) decried Disney’s “stupid activism” over his state’s Parental Rights in Education Act, which critics dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

“What we’ve done, maybe better than any other state in the country, is we have drawn a very clear line in the sand that says our school system is for educating kids, not indoctrinating kids,” DeSantis said during remarks at the Moms for Liberty National Summit.

“We’ve also drawn a clear line in the sand that says parents have a fundamental role in the education of their kids.”

DeSantis said he was a bit surprised by the backlash from the Walt Disney Company following the bill’s enactment. He thought “the left would have their spasm,” but he “honestly didn’t think that companies were going to say anything again.”

“All I’m doing is trying to defend parents,” DeSantis said. “The reality is Americans are sick of some of these companies and their stupid activism.”

The governor continued, saying, “It’s one thing to advance things in the political arena, but when they can’t get things done through the ballot box, they use corporate power to do it and to impose a leftist agenda through corporate America.”

“You’ve got to be concerned about that.”

DeSantis also criticized President Joe Biden for record-breaking inflation and high gas prices.

“When you see Brandon blundering around, bad energy policy you see every time you go fill up gas, and there’s the grocery bills — there’s a lot to be pessimistic about, particularly in terms of Washington, D.C.,” he said, noting that “in the state of Florida … [the] sun is rising.”

    A very strong Presidential candidate. Not many willing to take a stand for what’s right. Whatever he may run for, he has my vote.
    Our children and grandchildren are SO MUCH more important than the teacher’s union!

    Brandon’s blunders began 40 + years ago and have become progressively worse as he advanced from senator to V.P. and ultimately to President…..
