Too many Americans believed that “wokeness” was a passing fad.
But it has quickly turned into a totalitarian movement with leftists bullying everyone that they can to get on board with their insane agenda.
But Ron DeSantis is laughing at this major company after it showed its weakness in the most humiliating way.
Disney is currently in the throes of a “woke” takeover.
New CEO Bob Chapek said that he wanted the company to stay out of politics, but he’s already caved to his progressive employees, who were livid over Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill that Governor Ron DeSantis intends to sign.
The piece of legislation—that the Left have smeared as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill—prohibits public schools from engaging in classroom discussions about sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3.
Nowhere in the bill does the word “gay” appear, but Democrats are lying about it nonetheless.
Chapek rightly chose to stay out of it, but he quickly bent the knee to the leftist activists that work for him.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the “first big test of its policy of neutrality…exacerbated employee, politician and fan resentment toward Mr. Chapek. Disney initially was silent on the bill, then came out against it after it passed and said it had worked against the legislation behind the scenes…By the end of last week, Mr. Chapek apologized for his failure to make a strong public statement against the Florida bill, saying he had always opposed it and had privately lobbied against it for weeks. He also promised to pause political giving in the state and to fight similar legislation in other states.”
At the first sign of trouble, Chapek bailed.
Now that he has exposed his underbelly to the radicals, they essentially own him.
This is how organizations get taken over by a handful of radicals.
Considering Disney is the biggest and most powerful entertainment company in the world, it’s a troubling sign that they have gone full “woke.”
But DeSantis isn’t backing down. “In Florida, our policies got to be based on the best interest of Florida citizens, not on the musing of woke corporations,” DeSantis said in a press conference.
Governor DeSantis’ communications chief Christina Pushaw reiterated on Twitter.
1. DeSantis will never apologize when he is right
2. Disney cannot simply pack up all of its parks and move them to Connecticut or whatever woke state you imagine.

The Journal added that “Disney’s response to the Florida bill managed to offend both progressives, who wanted the company to do and say more to fight the bill, and conservatives, who wanted Disney to stay out of the debate and now claim it is bowing to liberal agitators within its ranks.”
Conservatives want Disney to remain neutral, but progressives want the company to veer to the hard Left.
This is the culture war in a nutshell.
The Left wants to go off the cliff, and the Right wants to slow them down.
Disney is yet another institution that has been captured.
