Disney just picked up this surprising ally in its fight with Ron DeSantis
Disney has gone full-on woke and declared war on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
But Disney received some back up.
And now Disney just picked up this surprising ally in its fight with Ron DeSantis.
Disney ignited the latest front on the culture war when – at the urging of the corporate-controlled media and woke employees – the company attacked legislation in Florida to prevent teachers from sexualizing children in grades K-3.
After Florida Governor Ron DeSantis refused to kowtow to Disney’s woke bullying, this became a huge story nationally.
Fox News Channel extensively covered the battle.
The network’s primetime opinion hosts strongly supported Governor DeSantis fighting back against both a woke corporation trying to strong-arm Florida into supporting a radical transgender agenda that ran contrary to the values of Floridians, as well as fighting against the assault on parental rights by left-wing activists in schools.
But now radical homosexual activists inside Fox News Channel are pushing back on the network’s coverage.
The activist employees released a public statement attacking Fox’s coverage of the Left’s attempt to impose a bizarre and creepy transgender lifestyle lesson plan on American school children.
“Fox Pride denounces statements made regarding sexual orientation and gender identity on Fox News in the past week,” the statement read. “While the internal support and resources Fox Corp. offers to LGBTQ+ employees are amazing and supportive, the public facing messaging and rhetoric is the opposite.”
“We find it disheartening and a step backward in the acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community,” the statement added. “Fox News is one of the most watched cable networks in the nation and we must be mindful of the impact these words have on the LGBTQ+ community — especially youth. LGBTQ+ youth have the highest rate of suicide and words matter. Hateful words and generalizations about sexual orientation and gender identity have a direct impact on people’s lives. We are working to address and make sure our voices are heard.”
In a statement to CNN, Fox News defended its commitment to freedom of speech and diversity of opinion.
“We are fully committed to freedom of speech and freedom of the press because we know these precious rights as well as diversity of thought and opinion benefit us all…” a Fox spokesman told CNN.
One thing is for certain, this issue is not going away any time soon.
