Ron DeSantis super PAC dunks on another 2024 opponent with Disney, drag queens

Trump Disney NBD
First it was Nikki Haley. Now Donald Trump is getting the treatment.

Ron DeSantis’ super PAC is offering a sequel to a previous ad positing that Nikki Haley is too cozy with the Walt Disney Co.

This time around Never Back Down is dragging Donald Trump. Literally, as the new digital spot includes female impersonators among its familiar denunciations of a 2024 opponent.

The new spot from the super PAC contends that Trump “did nothing to fight back against Disney’s woke agenda,” backing that claim up by noting CEO Robert Iger was appointed to the former President’s Strategic and Policy Forum.

That appointment was in 2017, before DeSantis solicited Trump’s endorsement in the 2018 campaign, and well before the company crossed the Governor by opposing Parental Rights in Education legislation.

One of the drag queens in the video welcomes viewers to something called the “Disney+ Pride Celebration Spectacular.” It also features Disney employees talking about a “not at all secret gay agenda,” and “targeting Gen Z,” as well as “gender affirmation procedures” and “kids who are transitioning.”

The footage is juxtaposed against DeSantis and his vow to ensure that “woke ideology ends up in the dustbin of history.”

Back in April, a six-figure digital ad buy from the super PAC slammed “Mickey Haley” in the wake of the former Palmetto State Governor’s pitch to the company to move to the state.

That 45-second spot showed Disney officials discussing “canonical trans characters,” moves to “add queerness” to narratives, targeting “kids who are transitioning,” “LGBTQIA characters,” a creator’s “gay agenda” and “adding queerness,” and so on.

The Disney-DeSantis beef is in federal court, with the company seeking legal recourse for the state’s moves to invalidate its development deal struck in the final days of the Reedy Creek Improvement District that governed the park’s business from 1967 until this year.

    The amount of bigotry coming from DeSantis, PAC, and DeSantis himself is an excusable. They literally took the sunshine out of Florida. Florida is now a dystopia. We’re all businesses and people fear they will be punished if they speak out against the draconian DeSantis and his sycophant legislators.. the Packers just comprised of a lot of billionaires that want to create a narrative for the country .

    Qristian, racist, misogynist, not-too-bright, incurable homophobia. Which church teaches this?

    Christians are a cancer on Earth.

    Disney will win big on this. I hope they clean out the funds that are left from the taxpayers before DeSantis spends it all!
    Every week they revise their lawsuit mainly with those quips from DeSantis and his MAGAt gang in the FL legislature.
    After spending the weekend in Miami. Doesn’t look like the Cubans and the Latinx are voting for any MAGATs in FL…..

    There’s something sick and worrisome about a man who can only build himself up (so he thinks) by tearing other people down – especially his own constituents.

    What’s he hiding?

      He’s a cross dresser. There’s no other explicable reason he’d go after drag queens the way he does.

        They drag queens look better in boots. He’s jealous.
