Ron DeSantis is fighting fire with fire against the left.
He is one of a growing number of Republicans willing to push back against the wokeness of the Left.
Now Hollywood leftists are melting down after DeSantis passed one bill protecting children.
Ron DeSantis has shown how Republicans can be effective when they’re willing to use state and local power to fight the Democrats, who are more than willing to crush the Right any chance they get.
DeSantis recently signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill, which stops public schools from engaging in classroom discussions about sex and radical gender identity in grades K-3.
That is perfectly reasonable to any normal person, so of course liberals went insane when DeSantis signed it.
They launched a propaganda campaign calling it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which is wildly inaccurate.
And Hollywood elites got involved to pressure Disney to put the screws to DeSantis and his state.
Disney CEO Bob Chapek wrote in a leaked internal memo:
“I also believe you deserve an explanation for why we have not issued a statement. We are going to have a more fulsome conversation about this at the company-wide Reimagine Tomorrow Summit in April, but I will preview that discussion now as it is so timely. As we have seen time and again, corporate statements do very little to change outcomes or minds. Instead, they are often weaponized by one side or the other to further divide and inflame. Simply put, they can be coutnerproducitve and undermine more effective ways to achieve change.”
That triggered outspoken left-wing director and writer Judd Apatow to go after Disney.
Apatow tweeted in response:
His customers are children. This bill harms children in ways that will damage many for life. @Disney should never be a company that doesn’t stand up for the safety and support of all children. They certainly should never financially support those who attack children like this. https://t.co/7AfmgrKAvp

Apatow incessantly hounds companies to do the bidding of the political Left.
He has led numerous unsuccessful boycotts against Fox News host Tucker Carlson to get him removed from the airwaves.
David Hogg, the braindead liberal who was the face of the astroturfed anti-Second Amendment March for Our Lives movement, promoted a student walkout over the bill, and liberal actor Josh Gad tweeted in support:
“As a Floridian, I am so blown away by these kids. This bill is discrimination at its most base. There isn’t a political issue…this is about humanity and decency. There are nuanced issues in this intense political climate. This is not one of them.”

Gad obviously did not read the bill; he’s simply virtue-signaling to his “woke” Twitter followers.
If he had read the bill, he would know that there is no discrimination in it.
Kids eight-years old and younger do not need to be taught radical theories about sex and radical gender identity.
Mark Hamill of Star Wars simply tweeted the word “gay” dozens of times in a row, which is essentially the level of understanding of virtue-signaling celebrities.
Hopefully Republicans—and perhaps more importantly corporations—are learning that it pays to stand up to the left-wing mob.
They will go away and find another cause to distract themselves.
