The Mouse has been stripped naked. Florida revokes Disney World’s special status, for criticism of the “Don’t Say Gay” law.

Disney's special district pays for its own services, so removing this status means Florida residents will see a higher tax bill. The district also has over $1 billion in debt, which the state would be on the hook for. Florida will go broke thanks to #MoRon.

By a vote of 70-to-38: Over the sound of #Democrat protests, the #Florida House of Representatives passes a bill stripping Disney of its special tax status. The bill now heads to Clown Ron DeSantis who is expected to sign it.

This was once called the happiest place on earth, but this move revokes a privilege that effectively allowed Disney to self-govern its theme park, in Orlando. 

This is fascism and revenge  politics. Using the power of the government to punish dissent was one of the biggest reasons we had a revolution.
