CEO bet badly, staying silent on "Don't say Gay" as a majority of Americans oppose Florida law. And it's a signal to Democrats to hit the GOP hard.
"Death Santis" is badly misreading the GENERAL public. I hope this contributes to him getting CLOBBERED in November. And yeah, the Dems need to pick this up and rub the GOP's collective faces in it. They put on the Brownshirt with superglue, let's make them own it.
When my 2 children exited their closets in the mid-90's, my husband and I became very active in PFLAG; we marched on Washington and fought tirelessly for LGBT rights. DeSatan is turning the clock backward with the love and support of the Tallahassee legislature. Let's hope people in Florida have evolved enough to throw this mini-trump out of office in November. Few people seem anti-LGBT other than the Evangelicals, and they are a minority group.
The only way to end this absurdity is get big money out of politics. Furthermore wtf is Disney doing contributing to facist like them.
The Grand Old Confederates like to break out the scapegoats whenever they screw up royally. In this case they break out homophobia, transphobia, racism (in the form of being against CRT), and their new BS known as "cancel culture". Never mind the fact that they bungled the initial response to COVID by allowing thousands to die through misinformation, and were absolutely enamored by Putin prior to invading the Ukraine. They don't want us to look at the bodies that have piled up.
I sure picked a bad week to read the news again, now it's time for me to dive back into world of satire cinema and listen to this Jobriath album I never got around to listening. See you soon when I need to snap out of it and return to reality.
He has surrounded himself with Republican functionaries in his C-suite. Cause he is a Republican boot-licker himself. He probably thought he could get away with secretly serving his Repub pals by reversing everything Iger. In this case, supposed neutrality served Republican interests. Too late to discover his so-called conscience. The bill passed--what will DeSantis do?
You are on point, Michelangelo, and we must keep speaking up for what the majority of Americans want.
Note, the last CEO, Iger, had a Salary of $60Million his last year. Even Walt Disney’s Daughter had a big issue with that.
To be fair, the current CEO has been at his post a short time. His predecessor, Bob Iger, ever the self absorbed ‘Leader’ bailed suddenly when the Bottom line, and Employee Relations, looked to be dicey.
This fills me with fighting energy!!!
Excuse me but I'm from the days of Homo Robbing Committee (HRC) that cozied up to political types forgetting that the grassroots people footed the tab that allowed that sort of stuff. Anyway, ever notice how donations always seem to miss the worthier causes that don't make the headlines?
What you should realize is that fascist florida gays not sounding the initial alarm is because there is nobody in northern florida to pester the corrupt politicians during the session non-stop. We in the capitol city are essentially invisible to the Central and South Florida Sisters and Brothers...
"Chapak . . .said all donations to GOP politicians in Florida would be 'paused.'” Actually, he "paused" donations to *all* politicians in Florida, GOP or otherwise, punishing pro-LGBTQ pols along with anti-LGBTQ ones.
A CEO at Disney is paid a fortune. With that comes responsibility. It is a travesty he didn’t speak out and when he did it was luke warm. Disney should donate BIG to Democrats who oppose these heinous and cruel bills that harken back to the dark ages. It’s shameful!
