Video footage from the Florida House of Representatives this week shows Democrat members yelling and wailing as the body voted to dissolve Walt Disney World’s private government district, a move that experts believe will place new tax strains on the left-leaning corporation.
The state government of Gov. Ron DeSantis and Disney have been engaged in an open feud over the latter’s opposition to parental rights legislation – dubbed the “Anti-Grooming Bill” that was recently signed into state law.
The bill passed by the Florida legislature on Thursday looks to eliminate the Reedy Creek Improvement District, as Disney’s 55-year-old private government is known, as well as a handful of other similar districts by June 2023.
Lawmakers voted 70-38 to back the measure while Democrat Rep. Travaris L. McCurdy, led Democrats in yelling indistinguishable chants throughout the proceedings.
Left-wing members could be heard wailing and screaming as the legislation was passed. The bill will now head to Gov. DeSantis’ office for signing.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki broke down in tears this week over parents’ rights bills like the one recently signed into law in Florida this week, stating that they “make her crazy.”
“I’m going to get emotional about this issue because it’s horrible,” the White House official sobbed. “It’s like kids who are bullied, and all these leaders are taking steps to hurt them and hurt their lives and hurt their families. And you look at some of these laws in these states, and it is going after parents who are in loving relationships, who have kids. It’s completely outrageous.”
“There are so many layers of this that are just outrageous, and I hope people continue to educate themselves on this because it is a bad side of politics,” Psaki added “And I will not cry again during this interview, I promise you.”
“This is an issue that makes me very crazy,” Psaki concluded.
Vernon Jones, the former Democrat currently running with President Trump’s endorsement for Georgia’s 10th Congressional district, has promised to introduce the controversial anti-public school grooming bill recently passed by Florida lawmakers and signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis into the U.S. Congress.
“In Congress, I’ll introduce a federal replica of the anti-grooming bill recently passed in Florida,” Jones wrote to his nearly 400,000 Twitter followers and 15,000 Telegram subscribers.
“Our kids should be learning math and science, not about the 800 genders that supposedly exist in some liberal fantasy land.”
Jones referred to the often-maligned Florida bill that prevents public school teachers from teaching controversial gender theory to small children.
