War Comes to the Happiest Place on Earth
The Magic Kingdom Joins the Resistance in a Battle Against Grumpy
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis passed a law. Walt Disney executives spoke out against it, after some prodding from their employees. Gov. DeSantis, aka Grumpy, got upset. Disney had the audacity of expressing its 1st amendment rights. Technically, it was an executive. Then Grumpy passed another law to punish Disney. Disney Jail for you!
Disney, the biggest employer in Florida, announced it is stopping its political donations. That’s what has Republicans’ panties in a twist. Gov. DeSantis also dragged California into his war against Mickey Mouse [where the other Cinderella Castle is in the U.S]. Pitting California vs Florida values? Think California wouldn’t have a problem with its values.
Let’s pose a political question. If Disney is a “guest” in Florida? So, says DeSantis. Isn’t Trump too! Guess visitors are in different classes. Note: The Liberty Square Riverboat has been in Florida longer than Trump.
Isn’t Disney entitled to 1st amendment rights? Because corporations are people too? Thanks, Supreme Court in 2010. How would Republicans feel if DeSantis treated the 2nd amendment in the same way? How many gun-loving bureaucrats’ heads would explode [like the Disney World fireworks show]!
Disney is expressing opinions that Republicans don’t like. Oh No! That’s the whole point. Wait until Republicans discover Disney has gay characters.
This argument will eventually end up in the courts. Florida taxpayers will most likely foot that bill. But will they end up with the $1 billion bond debt? But if Gov. DeSantis has his way Disney will put up the dough. Disney can just pilfer the loot from Pirates of the Caribbean to pay off the debt. Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me!
Is Grumpy banking on the fact that Disney can’t move Cinderella’s Castle [and around 43 miles]? Plus, unemploy thousands of people? There have already been offers to move the Jungle Cruise and others. But wouldn’t that hurt his political aspirations to become president?
Has DeSantis gotten too big for his britches? Maybe we should ask Donald Duck. Wait! Donald doesn’t wear pants. But DeSantis may be a bigger quack than the duck.
Or will Mickey Mouse just give a middle glove finger to Florida and Grumpy [Gov. DeSantis]? How Small of a World is it?
