CNN:  Appearing at the doorstep of Walt Disney World, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill Monday that gives him new power over Disney, effectively punishing the entertainment giant for speaking out against the [Fascist] Republican’s political agenda.

The new law amounts to a state takeover of the Reedy Creek Improvement District, the government body that has given Disney unique powers in Central Florida for more than half a century. It allows the governor to replace the district’s existing board – mostly people with ties to Disney – with a five-member body that he hand-picks.

“Today, the corporate kingdom finally comes to an end,” DeSantis said Monday at a Reedy Creek fire station in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. “There’s a new sheriff in town and accountability will be the order of the day.”


While the move was celebrated by conservative media, several of DeSantis’ would-be GOP rivals have been critical. Former Vice President Mike Pence said the conflict with Disney was “beyond the scope of what I as a conservative, limited government Republican would be prepared to do.” And New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu said penalizing businesses for political speech set “the worst precedent in the world.”

DeSantis has shrugged off such criticism. Monday’s bill signing event turned into a lengthy takedown of Disney that extended beyond its foray in Florida’s legislative activity. DeSantis featured speakers who assailed the company’s vaccine and mask policies, its treatment of firefighters and its more recent entertainment offerings.


MY Note: 

This is basically a fascist takeover of the land in-which Disney owns, but no longer controls. Since 1967 Disney had autonomy and administered their district without any cost to Florida tax payers. 

 The State must now maintain all roads, provide emergency and fire services, environmental services, and take over all property / building inspections. Much infracture liability shift to the state and the tax-payers of the state. 

Update: Florida taxpayers could face a $1 billion Disney debt bomb if its special district status is revoked. It happened yesterday.    

Disney is the largest employer in the state of Florida and Disney World is the l
argest single-site employer in the world. Unrestrained, as in Florida, imagine what DeSantis will do if elected president. 

According to Politico - DeSantis announced five appointees today a new board that oversees much of Disney World’s day-to-day operations.  All are political donors and loyalists one of which is head of a Christian ministry. He is Ron Peri, who founded the ministry “The Gathering,” which regularly spews nonsense about “Christian Nationalism” and the decaying of local schools. 

If nothing else it proves that DeSantis is willing to do anything to propagate his anti-woke agenda and revenge anyone who speak out; even it it cost Floridians 1 Billion dollars in debt. 

Is there no shame!


  1. You might want to change "Disney had anatomy" to "Disney had autonomy". Feel free to blame it on spell check, then delete this comment.

  2. I feel quite uncomfortable when a corporation is literally assigned 'jurisdiction' over a large area of land.
    Reminds me of the old time privately held 'Mill Villages' prevalent in the rural south. They had ownership of everything, including the housing, the churches and the power system as well as phone exchanges/services ect...

    DeFascist seemingly has some sort of 'hidden agenda' and I am yet to figure out what that is. Only time will tell.
    Personally, DeFascist is probably gonna 'slip in his own messy pile'.

  3. I just saw Tuesday night's Steven Colbert's opening video sketch on Disney World and how DeFascist is 'straightening' things out, and de-wokeifying everything.
    Check youtube.
