“I think they’re making a terrible miscalculation that … ultimately, maybe will be bad for business,” he told host Laura Ingraham.
The Republican Florida congressional candidate explained that LGBT politics found its way into children’s content because the “squeaky wheel gets the grease.”
“And the small minority within the Walt Disney Company that’s part of the LGBT community are screaming the loudest. They’re being the loudest, they’re being the most vocal.”
” … [W]hy would you want to work at a company where the company essentially thinks that you’re a bigot?” Ingraham asked. “What they said essentially about Ron DeSantis and all the activists who supported what Disney did was that Ron DeSantis was a bigot.”
Disney does “not think that traditional Americans should have a seat at the table or frankly, even be on corporate boards,” she said, adding it’s “just the tip of the iceberg, and corporate America is going to be in for a rude awakening.”
Castillo noted the tension between the Left’s talk of democracy and the Democratic response to Florida’s parental rights bill.
“[Disney’s] statement says this about the bill that Ron DeSantis passed. They said, ‘Our goal as a company is for the law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down by the courts.’”
Floridians, including “a lot of Disney cast members,” voted state legislators into office, he said.
“These are duly elected members of the Florida House of Representatives and the Florida Senate who passed this bill and sent it to the governor. Thank God our governor has the backbone to stand up to companies like Disney, and pass this bill and stand with the people of Florida, stand with the parents and protect our children.”
