Manhattan Institute fellow Christopher Rufo says there doesn’t seem to be an end to Disney’s opposition to Florida’s parental education rights, or the politicization of the children’s brand beloved on “The Ingraham Angle”.
The law prohibits kindergarten through third grade education on gender identity and sexuality.
Laura Ingraham told Rufo on Friday that there is a majority of moderate Americans who want to enjoy Walt Disney’s creation without being stuffed with politics and being “proselytized” about sexuality.

After watching a clip of the company executive pledging to do more to oppose Florida law and support the LGBTQ agenda, Rufo said such a display was “degrading”.
“You’ve seen the video. CEO Bob Chapek, someone who makes $32.5 million a year as his base salary, is absolutely degrading every day, day after day,” he said.
“And the reality is that the conservatives in this country have dealt a blow to Walt Disney.”
Rufo pointed out that Florida’s Republican-majority Legislature is considering stripping Walt Disney World of its autonomy gradient, in that it could amend or repeal the law that established the Reedy Creek Improvement District, which allows essentially the property of self-governing in certain ways.

“In DC, conservatives said, ‘We’re not going to extend Disney copyrights for Mickey Mouse and other characters that are due to expire next year,'” he added.
“It’s a multi-billion dollar blow to the company and conservative parents and families across the country are in revolt against the mouse because they don’t want their children to be a testing ground for the type of sexual engineering of children which is clearly Disney’s bet.”
“They’re projecting their own kind of weird psychology onto the CEO, who’s backing off every day.”
