Democrat Colorado Governor Jared Polis wants woke Disney company to relocate to Colorado after the company failed to make Florida Governor Ron DeSantis give in to their demands.

Earlier this week, Polis voiced disagreement over DeSantis’ support for legislation that would strip Disney of its special status as a self-governing area, which was ultimately passed Thursday by the Florida House.

Polis tweeted on Tuesday urging Disney to consider relocating to his state accusing DeSantis of “authoritarian social attacks.”

“Florida’s authoritarian socialist attacks on the private sector are driving businesses away. In CO, we don’t meddle in affairs of companies like @Disney or @Twitter. Hey @Disney we’re ready for Mountain Disneyland and @twitter we’re ready for Twitter HQ2, whoever your owners are.” 

Here’s an original Piece from The Daily Wire published on April 21st about Florida’s Senate Passing Bill To End Disney’s Self Governance:

His offer couldn’t come at a more tumultuous time for Disney. On Wednesday, Florida’s Republican-led Senate passed a bill that eliminates a special taxing district that’s allowed Walt Disney Co. to govern the land where its theme park is located.

This special area, known as the Reedy Creek Improvement District, was established in 1967 and allowed the company to use its own vendors ranging from road maintenance to emergency services. These perks came with significant tax exemptions that will now apparently be coming to an end.

Reports say this unique zoning saves Disney tens of millions of dollars every year.

The drama between Disney and Republican politicians including DeSantis has come to a head in recent weeks. In March, the corporation publicly denounced the Parental Rights in Education Bill, which prohibited teachers from instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity to children in grades K-3. Current Disney CEO Bob Chapek originally refused to comment on the bill but eventually bent to mounting pressure from political activists working at the company.

“Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law. Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that,” a Disney spokesman told The Daily Wire in a statement.

“We are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country.”

Shortly after Disney made their stance on the bill clear, leaked footage from a company townhall showed an executive producer bragging about her “not-so-secret gay agenda” and saying she’s been instrumental in adding “queer” content to Disney’s children’s programming.

Now, the woke Disney faces backlash and experiencing the repercussions of its actions at a state level.
