Things haven’t been going well for Disney in recent days. Some of their films might have performed big at the box office, but their stock and reputation are taking a nosedive.
Florida revoked Disney’s special tax status. And now, a congressman from Texas is trying to strip away a special rule for their parks.
From Daily Caller:
Republican Texas Rep. Troy Nehls introduced legislation Monday that would direct the Secretary of Transportation to rescind the two no-fly zones over Disneyland and Disney World…
“The federal government should not grant special privileges and pick favorites for powerful well-connected companies like Disney,” Nehls told the Daily Caller before introducing the legislation.
Rep. Troy Nehls is pushing a bill that would remove Disney’s “no-fly” status for their parks in Florida and California.
The government creates “no fly zones” over high-security, military, and hazardous areas.
But, for some reason, Disney is the only company that enjoys this privilege, despite the many other theme parks in America.
It appears Disney used its considerable lobbying power years ago to get this special status. What for?
Perhaps so that guests at Disneyland and Disney World would be disturbed by airplanes flying overhead?
Or that Disney’s PR folks wouldn’t have to worry about ugly airplanes disrupting the views within the “Magic Kingdom.”
Not sure the main reason, but it seems like at least a few Republicans are growing sick and tired of the special treatment Disney gets from our government.
Perhaps a generation ago, Disney could brag about being the top family-friend content provider in America.
But today, Disney has become significantly more political, making a major goal to push LGBT content onto children.
The company even tried to interfere with Florida’s ability to protect children in school.
It’s unclear if Rep. Nehl’s bill will gain any traction. We’ll wait and see.
- Troy Nehls is pushing a bill to revoke Disney’s “no-fly” status.
- Disney is the only theme park that enjoys this privilege.
- This comes as Disney pushes an aggressive leftist agenda.
