Afraid of being singled out, isolated, pilloried by the media or even of losing their jobs, an actual majority of Walt Disney Company employees support Florida’s newly minted law protecting schoolchildren younger than fourth grade from homosexual indoctrination.
That’s according to a Disney worker who is running for Congress in Florida as a Republican. Jose Castillo told FOX News Digitalthat the “silent majority” of his co-workers support H.B. 1557, despite a noisy minority who led Disney into taking a stance against the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” law.
Castillo said: “there is immense pressure to toe the company line. However, the reality is that those drawing attention to this issue are in the minority. The Disney cast members who support the parental rights defended by HB 1557 far outnumber those who are protesting against it.” Following the maxim that “the squeaky wheel gets the grease,” Castillo asserted that “Disney and similar corporations listen to the loudest voices in the crowd,” even though a “silent majority” of their workers might not be on board.
“I think that is a terrible miscalculation because it’s clear that the democratic process produced this law,” Castillo told FOX News Digital. “Floridians, including Disney employees, democratically elected Florida’s state House representatives and state senators, and those elected officials passed this law; and then, thank God, Governor DeSantis signed it into law.”
Workers at Disney who are LGBTQ or who support LGBTQ “rights” recently put their employer in a tight spot, demanding that Disney use its economic might in Florida to coerce the state to somehow negate the new law.
Disney condemned the bill in an official statement on March 28 on its Twitter page, stating: “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 Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that.”
