After spearheading, and signing into laws to end Common Core in 2020- which allowed Republican Ron DeSantis to get a Parental Rights Bill in place that in turn provides much-needed transparency into the school’s curriculum- DeSantis has stabbed a knife into the center of the dark indoctrination that parents all over the country have been protesting against- by establishing that parent’s have a right to see what their children are being taught.
It started with ending Common Core:
“At the direction of Governor Ron DeSantis, the Department of Education released the proposed Florida B.E.S.T. (Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking) Standards for English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics, and announced that Common Core has been officially eradicated from Florida classrooms. The Commissioner is recommending that the State Board of Education formally adopt these standards February 12,” DeSantis said in 2020.
Disney company in Florida has been railing against DeSantis’s governing ever since, shocking the world with the animation company’s dedication- and even addiction- to that very sinister indoctrination that people want to see exposed and come to an end.
As if Disney is the evil villain in their own movie- they have waged war on Florida parents and lawmakers, and as popular and beloved as the company is- people are walking away from them- for good.
A new poll reveals that Americans are not happy with Disney after the company embraced the LGBTQ movement and tried to bully parents.
A new survey by the Trafalgar group– found that nearly 7 in 10 Americans no longer want to do “business” with Disney and will instead seek out “family-friendly alternatives.”
The poll found that a whopping 68.2% of voters are now “less likely to do business with Disney.” Of that number, 57.2% said they are “much less likely” to buy from Disney.
Additionally, 69% said that they are likely to “support family-friendly alternatives to Disney.”
Perhaps most importantly, the survey found that 48.2% of Democrats also said they are less likely to “do business” with Disney over the company’s stance on including LGBTQ characters and language at its park, shows, and movies.
Last month, leaked videos went viral on social media of an executive producer at Disney admitting to “adding queerness” to children’s programming.
Disney announced plans to ax gendered language such as “boys and girls” and “ladies and gentleman” in their park greetings to promote gender inclusivity.
Disney’s diversity and inclusion manager Vivian Ware was heard speaking about the changes in a video conference call recorded by City Journal’s Christopher Rufo.
“We’ve provided training for all of our cast members in relation to that. So now they know it’s ‘Hello, everyone,’ or ‘Hello, friends,’” Ware said in the video.
“We want to create that magical moment with our cast members, with our guests,” she said. “And we don’t want to just assume because someone might be in, our interpretation, may be presenting as a female that they may not want to be ‘princess.’”

This comes after Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law Florida’s “Parental Rights in Education” bill.
The bill prohibits teachers from giving classroom instruction on “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” in kindergarten through third grade.
DeSantis signed a bill that will impose four-year term limits on school board members and subject most material in district schools’ libraries and classrooms to governmental oversight and approval practices.
“In Florida, we not only know that parents have a right to be involved, but we also insist that parents have a right to be involved,” DeSantis said at a press conference.
DeSantis spoke about CB/HB 1467, a bill that he argued is “probably the strongest curriculum transparency legislation in the country” as resistance against “indoctrination in the school system.”
Tallahassee, Fla., February 7, 2020 – At the direction of Governor Ron DeSantis, the Department of Education released the proposed Florida B.E.S.T. (Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking) Standards for English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. It announced that Common Core has been officially eradicated from Florida classrooms. The Commissioner is recommending that the State Board of Education formally adopt these standards February 12.
“Florida has officially eliminated Common Core. I truly think this is a great next step for students, teachers, and parents,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “We’ve developed clear and concise expectations for students at every grade level and allow teachers the opportunity to do what they love most – inspire young Floridians to achieve their greatest potential. These standards create pathways for students that lead to great college and professional outcomes and parents will now be able to reinforce what their children are learning in the classroom every day. Florida’s B.E.S.T. Standards were made by Florida teachers for Florida students, and I know they will be a model for the rest of the nation.”
“Governor DeSantis made it very clear that we had to reimagine the pathway to young Floridians becoming great citizens, and we’ve done exactly that with the B.E.S.T. Standards,” said Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran. “Florida will be the first state in the nation with an ELA booklist that spans grades K-12, the first state in the nation with a civics booklist embedded in its ELA standards, and a state that has dropped the crazy math. Florida has completely removed ourselves from the confines of Common Core.”
