Is anyone tired of the infighting among conservatives over Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Florida legislature stripping Walt Disney World of its self-governing status? We are, but it’s still going. Most conservatives agreed that the Parental Rights in Education bill was a good and necessary thing if a bit vaguely worded. But now DeSantis has signed legislation stripping Walt Disney World. National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke wrote that there was no need to “salt the earth” and stripping Disney of its self-governing status now was “grotesque.” David French was distressed by the Right’s about-face on free speech. After all, conservatives certainly weren’t cheering on San Antonio for banning Chick-fil-A from its airport due to its “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.” Of course, that battle was for Chick-fil-A to be able to exist at all, not to endow it with special privileges.

Mediaite has a clip from Ben Shapiro’s show warning woke companies to expect a “legislative 2×4.”

“Pure vengeance.” No, Disney did not try nearly hard enough to stay out of it. They chose a losing battle and lost.

Christopher Rufo argued you had to make Disney feel financial pain at the hands of consumers:

The Daily Wire’s Jeremy Boreing, who started his own razor company, says this is the way.

Here’s The Dispatch’s Jonah Goldberg:

Let’s not memory-hole Masterpiece Cake Shop, then, or Chick-fil-A. Do we want to be the gracious winners in hopes that the Left will decide to change its tactics and treat conservatives in good faith?

It might be different if the Left played by any of these rules themselves. Did any Democrats break ranks and say, you know what, Ketanji Brown Jackson’s track record on child porn sentences is pretty disturbing, we should entertain questions about it?
