Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues to show Republicans the way forward.
This time Governor DeSantis scored another major win in the culture wars.
And Ron DeSantis proved a simple truth that will wreck Democrats in November.
When Governor DeSantis announced he would sign the Parental Rights in Education Bill woke employees at Disney lost their minds.
The bill would simply stop teachers from grooming children in grades k-3 into transgenderism.
Disney’s employees launching a full rebellion caused CEO Bob Chapek to issue a statement saying Disney would like to the bill voted down or defeated in court.
In other fights, liberals effectively used woke corporations to bully Republicans.
When Mike Pence was governor of Indiana Pence folded to the NCAA after the NCAA threatened not to hold any more championship events in the Hoosier State after Pence signed a religious freedom law.
Pence’s poll numbers plummeted due to his weakness and his political career looked over until Donald Trump named Pence his running mate in 2016.
Last summer, Major League Baseball removed the All-Star Game from Atlanta at the urging of Joe Biden and Stacey Abram over Georgia’s new election integrity law.
Governor DeSantis did not blink in the face of Disney’s woke corporate bullying.
DeSantis fought back and signed legislation removing Disney’s special tax breaks and governing privileges.
There ended up being a clear winning in the Disney-DeSantis beef.
And it was Ron DeSantis.
In the second quarter of 2022, Disney reported adding 1.5 million domestic subscribers to its Disney+ streaming platform.
But in the third quarter of 2022 – the three months directly following Disney coming out in support of grooming children into transgenderism – Disney lost 100,000 subscribers.
Disney’s domestic subscriber growth has collapsed following its fight with Ron DeSantis:
• In Q2, before the controversy, Disney+ added 1.5 million domestic subscribers.
• In Q3, after it went all-in on radical gender theory, Disney+ added only 100,000 domestic subscribers.

Disney tried to gaslight and spin the data as showing Disney gaining subscribers on Disney+.
But the truth is the gains came from international audiences where the fight over Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill never registered.
Disney lost 100,000 subscribers in America where the fight with DeSantis registered.
“Note: the company’s overall subscriber numbers grew this quarter, but if you read the breakdown in the quarterly earnings report, this growth was almost entirely international growth. Domestic subscriber growth collapsed, from 1.5 million in Q2 to 100,000 in Q3,” Manhattan Institute scholar Christopher Rufo posted on social media.
Democrats are on the wrong side of the culture wars.
Americans do not want woke activists grooming their children into transgenderism in schools.
Polls show a majority of Floridians – including a majority of Democrats – support DeSantis’ Parental Rights in Education Bill.
And the more aggressively the Democrats embrace wokeism, the more they will push away the majority of voters.
